My Hungry Boy

I know, all kids are hungry at some time or another. Brady stays hungry ALL the time. Food really is the key to his heart. He can be in the worst mood and you give him food he gets happy all the sudden. It's the funniest thing!

Tonight we had tacos for dinner. I would say it's his favorite, but that would be a lie. He doesn't have a favorite food- it's all his favorite! At any average meal, Brady can easily get seconds, thirds, then finish whatever Luke didn't eat from his plate....

When he thinks he is getting finished, he has to lick his hands.

Then lick his plate.

Maybe it's just that he likes to be messy...

"Daddy, please pick me up, my tummy is about to explode!"
You may think that this is just a growth, he has always been like this!

Our family went to my parent's house for Thanksgiving this year. We had a wonderful meal and lots of fun spending time with my mom's side of the family. Her cousin came in all the way from Ireland.

Our menu: Baked turkey, fried turkey,ham, dressing, gravy, turnip greens, green bean casserole, green bean bundles, squash casserole, asparagus casserole, sweet potato casserole, watergate salad, coleslaw salad, and lots & lots of rolls.

For dessert: pecan pie, coconut cream pie, pumpkin pie, & chocolate pie.

Papa & the boys!

Dad & Luke

We had a wonderful time. After dinner, we went around the room and said what we were thankful for. Luke very sweetly said "I am thankful for my mommy & daddy"

A Very Busy Weekend...but lots of fun!

First, we had Aunt Kaitlen's 22nd birthday party.

Then, the next morning, Caleb & I drove to College Station to see the Baylor/A&M game. It was a neat experience to see a game a Kyle Field even though the Bears lost...big time :(

You may not be able to tell, but this is a picture of A&M's mascot, Reville.

We had a fun time at the game together, then came home and met Erin & Noah for dinner.

The next day after church, we had lunch at the Allen's house. Brady and Luke were so glad to get to see "EE" & "Nonah". Thankfully, they will be back in just a few weeks for Christmas.

Just a few pictures of the boys wearing Uncle Nonah's glasses.

Women's Holiday Dinner

The Women's Ministry at our church hosted a Holiday Traditions Dinner tonight. The main focus of the dinner was for women to share their holiday traditions, decorating ideas, recipes, mishaps, etc... with other women. It was so much fun and totally right up my alley.
Each hostess for the dinner was able to bring their own table decorations and decorate a table in either a Christmas or Thanksgiving theme.

Above is a picture of the table I hosted.

Here are the guests I had at my table.

Summer is one of my sweet friends who has two kids the same ages as Luke & Brady. Very rarely do we get pics of's usually our kids!

Amy & I have been friends since preschool. I am so thankful to have someone like her in my life. We have been best friends 25 years.

House Divided

Tonight the Pearland Oilers played the Dobie Longhorns... Caleb went to Pearland, I went to Dobie. Since I couldn't convince Luke to wear an orange shirt with me, I put Brady in one!

Alex, Luke, & Asher at the game.

Brady & Karly.

Fun times were had by all!

Quick November Pics

I took the boys out this morning to take some quick pictures of them. Here's what we came up with...

Hope you like them!

Luke's First Teeth Cleaning

Today was Luke's second trip to the dentist, but first teeth cleaning. The first time he went to the dentist was when he was two and knocked his tooth out. Since we hadn't been since then we went today for his first cleaning.
Luke waiting to be called back.

Since he is officially a "big boy" he went back by himself without me. Thankfully I have a few friends who work at the office so one of them went back to snap a few pics for me (wink wink)!

Meanwhile, in the waiting room... Brady was not happy about having to wait. He was into EVERYTHING.
Luke got an A+ at the dentist, so we were off to the park for a picnic as promised! Luke chose Independence Park today. We stopped for McDonald's on the way and brought a blanket to picnic on.

The kids had fun playing on the slide, swinging and playing in the rocks before time to go home for Brady's nap.

My Baby Is Growing UP

After the boys bath each night we brush their teeth. Well, tonight after baths were over, teeth were brushed, and pjs were on- I looked in the bathroom to find Brady doing this. He decided his teeth weren't quite clean enough!

So cute!
