We are {Thankful}

Happy Thanksgiving!
We had a really great day today- good food and quality family time spent together.
Before dinner, we went around the table and said a few things that we are thankful for, we do this every year.
B: "my family, my video games and my house"
P: "my freedom to do what I want and my family"
D: "my boys, my beautiful wife (no lie) and the roof over our heads"
M: "my family, our home, our HEALTH and mommy and daddy's jobs"

We have a lot to be thankful for and we know it!
I feel so blessed; three healthy, handsome boys and a husband who is the best father. "My cup runneth over"

My version of the "thankful tree" that I found on pinterest.

After dinner, we watched the last rival game between the Longhorns and the Aggies, which was played at College Station, and the HORNS won!!! Final score: 27-25!! The last 7 minutes of this game gave me heartburn!
Good luck in the SEC next year, Ags.

Thinking about you...

Today would have been your 66th birthday, Granny. You've been gone for 9 years, but somehow it doesn't feel like it can possibly have been that long. I think about you all the time and talk about you with Kyle and the boys often. I miss you so much. I know you already know that, though. You not being here with us is so hard, but I know that you are in a better place and that you are keeping up with us all.
You still mean so much to me. I am so thankful that you were in my life and I will keep with me always the time that we spent together. We had a very special bond and I will never forget that. I love you.

my little {artist}!

Austin's first time finger painting was a big hit! He absolutely LOVED it! We had to do two paintings because he was just in a creative mood today. LOL
He is hilarious.

Happy Painting,

Disguising TED the Turkey

Peyton's assignment for the weekend- to help disguise Ted the Turkey so he survives Thanksgiving. ;)
He also wrote an essay about his disguise. These are being judged in a few weeks, before Thanksgiving break. He had fun with this one!
Good Luck, Ted the Traveling Circus CLOWN!

Trick or {Treating} 2011

This year we had one trick or treater- Peyton and Brendan handed out candy at our house.
Our little garden gnome was a HIT! He was so cute- even though I had such a hard time convincing him to keep his hat (and the attached beard) on. Kyle and I took him down our street and he was so happy. After we got home, he dumped out his bucket and surveyed his candy. ;) He even shared a few pieces with us.

Happy Halloween, y'all!
