Pre-Turkey Day Weekend

To think that this time last year we were in countdown to Shelby mode, and this year we're getting ready to celebrate her first Thanksgiving.
Wow, how time flies.
Home girl is a walking machine!
It's so darn cute, my heart just explodes with love!

Shelby is quite the 'Daddy's Girl'.
And.. vice versa.
For those of you interested, a video to prove her walking skills and love for her Daddy.

My parents were in town this weekend because my cousin's husband had surgery.
They stopped by on Saturday to see us.
Shelby showed them her walking skills too.
My Mom and I did a few projects to get party preps started for her birthday bash in 2 weeks.
I don't want to give anything away but just know that there will be tons of snowflakes to be had!
My Dad taught Shelby to do this thing with her lips.
It's so cute and even when she sees him on Face Time she immediately starts doing it.
We did a little shopping too and Shelby is already picking out toys she wants from Santa.
Speaking of Santa, we went to the Southern Christmas show today with my SIL and niece.
Even thought Thanksgiving isn't here yet, I couldn't resist dressing Shelby in festive outfit.
At least it doesn't have Santa on it.
I haven't been in years and I was surprised it wasn't more crowded.
I'm guessing it had to do with the fact it was the last day for it.
Always great stuff but I go more to get ideas than to buy things.
Cousin Paige enjoyed herself and managed to talk her Mom into buying her more than one thing.
An attempt at a picture.
Not so successful.
Shelby had no problem showing off her walking skills here too.
Or, making new friends.
I swear, I think she's going to have my extrovert personality.
Our day at the show ended with a concert by the Miller Piano Company.
Shelby was a hoot here too.
Dancing for everyone.
Paige joined in on the fun.
Good times for sure.
Now ready for our influx of guests that starts tomorrow.
Let the holidays begin!!!
