Tristan's Thanksgiving

Tristan's team played a tournament over Thanksgiving in Las Vegas! They left early (4 am) Thanksgiving morning and returned Sunday night. Man, did I miss him!!! He had a blast and only had positive things to say about the entire trip.
The team waiting on their van in Las Vegas.
Their team prays before every game. Look at those mountains in the background!
Does that guy in white look huge or what? Love seeing T with the ball.
Here he is again! He had a very successful weekend on a personal level. 4 goals in 4 games! He scored half of their team goals!
It was so hard for me to get the texts and calls from the parents who were able to go. I was ecstatic that he did so well but sad that I wasn't able to watch it in person.
Celebrating one of his goals! Way to go Tree! The team finished with 1 loss and 3 ties. Even though they didn't win - their team needed this trip for bonding and the experience of it all. All I know is that I'm super happy to have him back home.

Our Brown Thanksgiving!

I had to post this picture because it's rare to catch Jeremy in a true smile. Here are the 3 Brown boys together!
Jeremy was able to bring his 3 children with him. Left to right: Terrance - 15, Marcus - 15, Jeremy and Laila - 10.
A view of the crowd before Thanksgiving dinner. We had 15 people in all. 8 family members from Texas, us, and 3 friends.
Sitting down for a second.
Josh and Paxton. He really didn't know what to think about all of our company.
The kids took over the dining room table.
All of us! Notice Tristan is missing? He was in Vegas and I'll blog about that next! We had a great Thanksgiving with our family. They rented a van and drove up here Wednesday and left Saturday morning. Our short time together flew by. Can't wait until we can do it again!
