Thanksgiving Day

First of all, let me apologize because I have having a hard time getting these pictures in the right order and my posts are out of order too. I am having a hard time today.  Anyway, we had a great Thanksgiving. We went to mom and dad's this year. It was just my family and then my sister and her husband brought some of their friends from England. I am so thankful for all the blessing that God has given me, especially my family! 
Here are my precious boys. Sam was being silly, of course! 

Wes and his boys playing with sticks.

BeBop and Sam pulled the wish bone together, Sam won! 
It was a great Thanksgiving! 

Fun at BeBop and PopPop's House

We had a great time at BeBop and PopPop's house for Thanksgiving. Even though we live in the same town, we don't spend the weekend with them very often. We all had a great time. 
Here is Sam with the leaves he found on our hike. They were bigger than his face.

Mom decided to give Micah his early this year. They had a great time! 
We went for a little hike to the creek behind Mom's house.

Christmas is Here!!!

I am so excited that the Christmas season is finally here! I love it! While we were at mom's for Thanksgiving, the boys decorated a gingerbread house with BeBop. I think they loved eating the candy just as much as making the house. All Micah wanted to do was suck on the candy and then try to use that to decorate the house. YUCK! They had a great time! 
I decorated my house the night before Thanksgiving, I just couldn't wait! And then we helped mom decorate her house and tree on Friday. I just love it!
 Here are a few pictures of the boys while they were decorating their house.

Family Day

We had an awesome day today! This morning I decided to take the boys to the holiday parade in Tomball. It was so much fun! Micah feel asleep on the way so Sam and I parked the car and just hung out in the back with the back window open until Micah woke up. I decided to stay in the car since it was just me and Micah is too hard to watch in crowded areas. 
But when Daddy showed up we were able to get a front row seat. 
After the parade our Chick-fil-A was celebrating their birthday with Uniqua and Pablo. I am sure most of you know them from the Backyardigans. 
Sam was so excited! 
Here is Sam with his buddy, Pablo. 
Sam and Micah with Uniqua. 
Not sure what Sam was doing in this picture. 

I had a hard time picking which picture I wanted to use of 
Micah and Uniqua because we have 4 or 5. Micah was in love with her. 
Everytime she got close to us, he wanted to hug her and sit with her. 
It was pretty cute! 

After the boys had their naps we went to a toy store so that Santa could buy his presents. The toy store had all their Thomas stuff on sale, 40% off. Pretty good! Oh how I wish we had more money to spend on the boys. It is so hard to put things back! 
Then we went to eat at Chili's. It was so good! We had a gift card, which meant it was free and for some reason that makes the food taste so much better! Plus it had been a long time since the 4 of us had been out to eat. 
It was a great day with my family!!!

Zoo Trip

Today we had a great trip to the zoo with Megan, Logan, Camryn, Annalee, and Adelaide. I am pretty tired tonight, so it is just pictures. 
It is actually cool in the mornings here in Houston, so here is Micah with his ACU sweatshirt. 
My sweet Sam
Here are several of all the kiddos.

Thank You!!!

Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Angie Campbell! She hosted a party for Clay Memories on Thursday night and it was our biggest party so far! We sold 19 plates and 2 big platters!!! Thank You, Thank You Angie! 
If you don't hear from me between now and Christmas, I am super busy painting plates and try to be a mom at the same time. I hope to find time to say hi, but it might not be very often. 
Sorry girls!

10 Year Reunion

I had my 10 year reunion this last weekend in Covington, Louisiana. It was so much fun! I graduated with only 23 in our class, so we were all very close. It was so great getting to see everyone and catch up. Here are some of the pictures. I have several because I told everyone to look at my blog for the pictures. Sorry if some of you are bored.
