Tree Lighting Wrap Frock GIVEAWAY!!!!

Tree Lighting Wrap Frock GIVEAWAY!!!!

2nd place! WOO HOO!

Out of 600 submitted essays my son, yes, mine, won 2nd place in the Mayor's essay contest. Last week at the annual Edmond tree lighting ceremony Catch received his plaque from the Mayor. It was freezing that night, but I would sit out there for two more hours to see the smile on Catch's face. We were so proud of him!

Happy Thanksgiving

Take one:
We spent the weekend before the actual day celebrating "Thanksgiving" with my family.

What's Thanksgiving without football?!

Colt had just received this football for a late birthday gift and he was not wanting to share!

But he finally gave in.

No, we did not plan on four of the five kids wearing plaid, nor would I ever choose this for a picture. This was Sunday after church and we thought since everyone was was still looking halfway decent we would take a group picture. Out of the 75 pictures we snapped this was the best one we got.

Take two:
We spent Thanksgiving day (and the next two) with Trav's side of the family. I came home and realized I should have taken more pictures. We spent Thursday at Trav's aunt's house. His uncle took the kids for a hayride. They had lots of fun!

We had a great week celebrating Thanksgiving with all of our family and are thankful for each and every one of them!

Before it's "officially" winter.
