Nixon Thanksgiving 2010!

We had a great Thanksgiving this year! 8 of the 10 Nixon kids and families were there! Totally craziness! It was a blast. We had a special treat this year, Megan, my little sis came and down to Houston for the week.
We loved every minute of it!
We started the Thanksgiving celebrations with a Turkey Trot. They had a deal that 2-15 immediate family members could sign up for a total of 55$. Everyone at the race that knew the Nixon family, told us we got the best value for our money award!
The kids even rode their razors the whole time!

Kate slept through all of dinner. But she didn't miss the yummy pies
Sledding in Texas. There is this bunny hill at Texas A&M called Mt. Aggie. They have ski classes on it. It is turf from a football field. You spray water on it. The kids loved it.


Laura, Mike's mom made these darling Christmas dresses for the girls. The first attempt to take pictures didn't go so well. Kate was screaming and crying she was out-of-control. This is the second attempt that night. The dresses turned out so cute!
