CHLOE WAS THERE!!!! (along with Carol and Jimmy)
For Thanksgiving we went out to Whitt, TX to my dad's ranch. They have a "party barn" on it with picnic tables, a barn, a tractor, mule, and lots of cool things to hunt. We decided to be like the early settlers and have an outdoor thanksgiving, ( also, because mom and dad are selling their house and really don't want to mess it up.)
It was alot of fun and the weather was great! We had several aunts, uncles, and cousins to play with and talk to and lots of really great food. David was a hit with his fried turkey and okra and he also managed to throw a few steaks on the grill. It was a real feast and I am so glad we did it! My grandpa brought one of his horses out and the kids had fun riding on it. Grant's favorite thing was definitely the mule. He couldn't stay away from it.

Here are some very LATE pictures of Tate's Thanksgiving feast at school. He participated for the most part and afterwards we ate some yummy food with all of the families in his preschool.

Halloween fun

On Friday we had our church play group over for some yummy food, games, and cookie decorating. It was alot of fun and most of the kids wore their halloween costumes.

That night the boys got dressed up as a policeman and a Texas Tech Football player. Grant was supposed to be a monkey, thanks to his good buddy Taylor, but threw a fit when it came time to put the costume on. I think it was good luck for him to wear that red and black ( if you happened to see the game on Saturday...sorry horns fans.) Grant really got into the trick or treating, so much so, that he would walk right into people's houses as soon as they opened the door!

He and Tate has so much fun and were very tired after walking so much that night!
