A Cajun Thanksgiving and Baby Shower #1

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Keith and I traveled made the 9.5 hour trek to Louisiana to spend time with my side of the family. We're only able to make this trip once (or max twice) a year, so when we go we know we must spend quality time with loved ones, as well as eat as much Cajun food as possible. :) Since this was the only time we'd be in town before Gavin in born, my Mom threw us a baby shower!

Here's our recap. 

Me, my littlest sister Lacey, and my Mom

Keith, Gavin and me :)

Maw and me.

My attempt at a belly shot -- well, I got my belly!

My cousins Lena and Nicole
with little Marley (Nicole's daughter) and me

The cutest little stray cat at my Mom's house. 
We've convinced them to keep him, and I named him Boudin. (Yeah, sha!)

My future daughter-in-law, Leighton. 
(Yes, Baby Gavin's wife has already been chosen. Is that illegal? lol)

 Kim, Baby Leighton, and me

 Baby Shower time! :) 

My Mom, the morning of the shower. 
She literally wore a Who Dat shirt everyday we were there. :)

Opening gifts!

Whew, sorry for the picture overload! :) Keith and I received so many wonderful gifts at the shower (the crib, Gav's bedding, a baby swing, bassinet, and more!) and are very thankful for everyone's kindness and generosity. Overall, the trip was wonderful. There was a bit of family drama, but it wouldn't be the holidays without a few crazy family members acting up. ;)

I hope all of you lovely readers enjoyed your Thanksgiving.
