Busy but lovely time off

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. It was nice to have time off but it went by really fast.
Thanksgiving morning, we all watched the parade. Katherine thought it was “awesome” for about 20 minutes, then she lost interest. Everyone was coming over about 1:00pm, so starting about 9:00am came… “Is it time for Thanksgiving” “When is everybody coming”, “When can we have turkey”. Katherine was very excited. We had lots of goodies to eat. Colin was sure eying all the food, sorry.. not till next year buddy.

That night we watched a good football game, A&M fell a little short, but it was a good game, could have been worse. This year wasn’t A&M’s year (okay so it hasn’t been for awhile, but we bleed Maroon!)
Friday we went to Matt’s parents for yummy fajitas and enchiladas.. a great way to celebrate Thanksgiving! Our friends Tim & Stacey came by with their boy who is almost two. Katherine and Turner had a blast. She was even calling him her boyfriend.. but I don’t think he felt the same way!

Katherine reading Colin a bedtime story..look at all the drool!

Playing in the tent with Katherine

Colin was not happy on the car ride home.. he screamed and cried so much, instead of crying himself to sleep, he spit up ALL over the place. His reflux really seems to agitate him when he is angry. We rarely ever see an angry side of him.. it really was like the Exorcist!
Saturday we went to the park and played around the house, took it easy for the day. We played with the ducks at the pond, Katherine wanted to take one home. When we told her no because there was no where for the duck, she said he could sleep in her room. What a sweetie, but the answer was still no!
Sunday we decorated the inside of the house for Christmas and we went and got our tree. Katherine of course is very excited about Christmas. We sang a lot of Christmas songs and watched a few Christmas cartoons... Frosty the Snowman and The Grinch. When we were decorating the tree, she said it was going to be the best Christmas ever… I couldn’t agree more. We are so very thankful for the blessings in our life. We are thankful for the people we get to share those blessings with. It will be the 1st Christmas for all four of us.. and according to Katherine.. “It’s going to be AWSOME”! She’s young, but she knows what she is talking about!
Monday came too early!
