thanksgiving 2013

We had a pretty quiet but fun Thanksgiving this year.  Bo fried a turkey and some friends came over to eat, play and watch the Cowboy game with us.  

So thankful for this girl.

Much love between these two.

Love this turkey too.

H was the first one to the table.  No big shock there!

After dinner we decorated turkey cupcakes.  This one looks more like a bear, 
but oh well!  We also did a thanksgiving craft with our friends.

All the turkeys here.  

Such a fun day with sweet friends.  Happy Thanksgiving 2013!

thankful wednesday

What a fun, crazy, busy week it's been so far!
Thankful for these two and their love for each other.
I know they won't stand like this in a few more years.

Love it.

a week of thanks

Towards the end of our photo session, H was done.  However, 
I am so happy that she kept shooting pics of him because THIS 
is one of my favorites.  Not a Christmas card pic, or a big "framer" 
but this picture is H made over.  Love it.

Thankful for Mondays and for this little face.

lights, cold weather, frosty and the tree

Every year I have said that I wanted Christmas lights.  This year we got them and I am so excited!!
The first night they were on, Hunter ran out to see them.  
He said, "it's amazing!" and was so happy.  
Love it and just everything about this time of the year.

It has been a COLD weekend.  The kids wanted to go out and play.
They were inside about five minutes later.

We watched this "growing" snowman for 24 hours.
It was actually pretty cool to see him grow his fluff.

I was dead set that we don't get our tree out until Friday after Thanksgiving.
After church today we had nothing else going on for the rest of the day so I 
caved and it's now up.  I love it.  No other Christmas decorations
are out, but the tree takes the most time and Christmas is only a month away.

My little helper today.

We are so looking forward to a week off of our schedule.  No school, no alarm clock and no where we have to be.  We have some fun things planned and I am looking forward to focusing on everything we are thankful for this week.  Even though some of our tree is up, I still love Thanksgiving and won't forget about our blessings this week.  So thankful.

sic 'em bears

What a FUN weekend.  I had been looking forward to this Baylor game for a
while and it was a blast.  
Baylor played Texas Tech at Cowboy Stadium and there was a huge group of us that went together to tailgate and to the game.  It was an exciting game for sure!  Baylor can't seem to wake up until the second quarter of a game, but they woke up for sure and played great.
So fun!

Fun night with the best of friends.

school pics, peace signs and soccer

Not sure how the middle of November got here but here we are.

Hunter's school pics came in and I can't stop laughing.
Maybe it's the hand in the pocket?

Or "riding" the bike through the fake leaves.

Then we have Abby throwing the peace sign on the way to church.

On a different subject -
Hunter LOVES his soccer class.  Monday was the last day of fall
session so each child got a medal.  It made H's week!

Such a sweet class!

my little camper

Abby and her daddy just got back from a weekend Adventure Princess campout.
I was worried about it honestly.  Not because of danger but because Abby woke up crying on Friday and was worried about everything you can imagine.  She ended up having the BEST time, 
but I am not gonna lie....I was worried about it for Bo's sake.

Once they got there and Abby didn't see bears anywhere, she was good to go!

They went on hikes, boat rides, archery, got their faces painted, 
attended tribal counsel and roasted smores by their big fire.

Meanwhile back in Big D Hunter and I had a great time together as well.
We went fishing at the lake, dinner out both nights, Saturday we went to the Ft. Worth
Children's Museum and to a park.  He LOVED Curious George at the museum.

He also loved playing with the trains.  

It was a fun weekend for everyone!!

Halloween 2013

Another Halloween has come and gone!  Seems like yesterday Abby was a pumpkin screaming her head off as trick-or-treaters came to get candy from our poor, sleep-deprived souls.

We had a great time last night however!  Trick or treating with friends and then home to pass out our own candy.  It was a great night and the kids had a blast!  Happy Halloween!
