Texas Turkey

Well Moses has now traveled the world - well maybe not the world, yet, but he has now been to 4 states: New Hampshire, Illinois, Texas and of course the wonderful Mass. We've returned from our family reunion in Texas. It was a wonderful get together of all my dad's side of the family to celebrate Thanksgiving, my cousin's and my aunt's birthday. Derrick got to meet everyone and everyone met Moses. We also got to see two members of the Jungle Bungalow - Steph & Steph. Moses' favorite activity of the trip was going to the King Tut exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art. King Tut's baby picture looked eerily familiar....(see below). Many wanted to know "how he did on the plane" - well don't ask the guy who sat next to us on the way back. I tried to get his attention at the end to apologize but he wouldn't even look at me. No, he did ok. But no one likes to wait on the tarmac for hours before being allowed to take off. We finally got home at 4am! Thankfully we have wonderful friends who drive an hour to come pick us up at 3 in the morning.

On a personal note...the Tuesday before Thanksgiving I turned in my last assignment EVER! In January I will graduate with my MASTER'S degree in Missions and Evangelism! Hooray! (This is Meghan writing this, Derrick has one more semester).

Half of the Jungle Bungalow - Steph, Steph, and me.

My Grandmother and 2 aunts - Cindi and Mare. All 3 have had miraculous physical healings this year.

Moses and Addison - his 1 cousin once removed - I think. She shows her love by touching heads with you. So cute!

Opa, Moses, and my cousin Dwight

Moses and his Great Grandmother Donna.

Moses' activities in Texas:

King Tut's baby picture! Who knew they had pacifier's in Ancient Egypt. If you look close enough you'll also see that King Tut was a Yankees fan!

He found a new friend in the mirror. It's so adorable because he tries to reach out and touch him. He loves to smile and talk to himself.

Taking naps - of course Derrick had to take one too. Meeting Family can be tiring.

Eating pecan pie. (for the record Derrick did NOT feed him this!)

Reading books

Twins with Momma.

My cutie:

He is so sweet that we tried to bake him and eat him for dessert. Unfortunately he wouldn't even fit in the bowl, much less the oven. :)

MoMo beginning to talk
He's now standing up when you pull him up. He's learned that on the count of 2 to get ready. He squishes his face up and pulls his legs up so that he'll be ready on 3. what a genius!
