Christmas was somewhat organized chaos.....

My sister hosted Christmas lunch this year. It was very cold and she had a great fire in the fireplace. Carter and Papa were having fun sitting close....but not TOO close because it was quite "roaring".....
The kids were ready to start opening gifts quickly....Charley is surveying the large bag that was hers.....
The first thing Jonathan opened was a soccer ball.....he just had to get it out of the package and kick it a time or two....
Hmmm......"mommy, can I open this shopping cart??"
Carter got lots of stuff but was just happy to sit in a box and watch what was going on.....

Good Eats!!

San Antonio is really a great place for great food. Didn't get photos of the Mexican food we had Friday night but this breakfast on Saturday morning at Mi Tierra was wonderful!!!
Liquid refreshments at the Buckhorn Museum.
Saturday evening we ate at a seafood restaurant that I can't remember the name of, Susan and Daniel had eaten there before.....
Breakfast at the Guenther Sunday morning. Susan got hot chocolate, isn't it pretty??
Guenther House is the home of Pioneer Baking products. I had two of the biggest biscuits with my gravy that I have ever seen!! They were yummy!!
Greg got a beautiful quiche....he said it was really light and fluffy!! Daniel and I had several cups of coffee while the four of us visited......


I found a box on the front porch Thursday afternoon. Look what it was!! Yummy!!
Thanks, Millie!!

Leaves, leaves, and more leaves....

We have had more leaves this year than I can ever remember.
We played in them a while before we tried to rake them up.

The kitten from next door came to visit.

We burned nearly all the leaves last weekend. There are some left, but will have to wait until another time to burn the rest.....

Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys

Our first look at the field.
The local football team at the high school that Dustin played for was in a playoff game at the new Texas Stadium on Friday after Thanksgiving. Greg really wanted to Not so much. But he did have a point, at $12 per ticket, it would be the cheapest price for us to EVER see a game at the stadium. So he talked me into going.
It was AWESOME!! This crowd picture was one of the "smaller" screens.....
The color guard and the football guys were on the BIG screen, photos taken from our seats....which was right in our faces!! I think I may have looked down a couple of times to watch a few plays, otherwise I was watching this big screen. It was AMAZING!! I could see the color of the players' eyes and the expressions on their faces, as well as getting to watch the replays!!!It was great!!! I could get used to watching football like this!!
Tell me why I would want to watch the game from this perspective???

Greg didn't realize until our trip home that I had been watching the screen the whole ballgame!! Midway didn't win, but we had a fun time anyway!!!

Outside Fun

The weather was so nice this weekend. After lunch on Sunday, it was time to get outside and play!!
Jonathan was playing football, and Uncle was trying to tackle him, see how he hung on to the ball???.....
Charley was watching and dancing away......
Then they discovered the doggie door.....they were very curious, especially when Maria stuck her hand through from the other side.....
Wow, time for a drink.....
Things look different from here.....
Then it was time to head for naps.....

Happy Halloween!!

A couple of cute Halloween gals dressed in red......
Marcie said Jonathan would have nothing to do with his costume, or Halloween in general. Said he didn't even pay any attention to the kids that were coming to the door for candy....maybe next year......

Baylor Homecoming Parade 2010

Greg didn't have any athletic officiating commitment today--YAHOO--so he was able to join us. He and Jonathan were enjoying a kolache and donut holes while we were waiting on the parade to begin.
Baylor University has the largest collegiate parade in the nation.
Jonathan didn't know quite what to think about the people in the parade throwing candy to us. But he did know what to do with this little blue football that someone gave him...."foooo-ball"...
Papa walked him out to touch the helium football balloon.
Why is it so hard to get a 2 year old to cooperate for a picture? Here we have a "fish face"........and here he looks like he realizes that he is going to mess up my picture...and is enjoying it!!!
