2008 Champions!

They did it again! Our high school football team won the Texas state 4A championship. We figured we should probably go this time, it was in Waco. It was a lot of fun and the kids got to rush the field after the game...super cool. The weather was beautiful and it was just a really fun day.

And the most awesome thing happened...We had to wait in this huge line to get tickets. After about 45 minutes in line, we got close enough to see that they were only taking cash and we didn't have enough! So I saw an ATM sign in the stadium and ran over to see if they would let me in to get cash. This nice old lady (who I will remember forever) said the ATM was closed, but she said, "You can just go on in, I'd hate for you to miss the game." I told her I had my whole family with me and she said to gather them up and come see her. She let us in with a wink and a smile. I think I smiled for 2 hours. I didn't know people could still be so nice. So whoever you are, nice old lady – you made our day!

Here are some highlights...

Christmas Cheer

It is crazy to me how much Jack picks up from his big sister and school. I had no idea he knew any of these songs, but he can sing like 5 Christmas carols perfectly. It is so funny, and pretty cute as well...

Here is "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"

Snow is NOT ice!

Here is a cute clip of Jack first experience with "snow." First of all, I realize this hardly counts as snow and I know my kids are completely unschooled in the whole snow-business, but that is what makes this clip so funny...

Weather roller coaster


One of the things I love about this area of Texas is the wild weather. There is something locals always say, "If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes." Last week was just as wild as this one will be. We had 70's, snow, near hurricane force winds, and yesterday was muggy and 80. We were all sweatin' in our church clothes!

So it looks like we are in for another mixed bag this week. It is great because we can bundle up Monday and Tuesday, then it's back to tank tops and flip flops for the middle of the week. Often days will start out warm and balmy, and then around midday, the temp will plummet 40 degrees.

It keeps life interesting. I just have to be sure to check the weather every morning so I can dress the kids appropriately! AJ gets really upset when she gets sweaty!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...in TEXAS???

Tuesday was a balmy and gorgeous 78 degrees, then yesterday we woke up to this!!!





Luckily today is back up into the 60s, one day of cold, I can handle. But I start getting awfully testy in heavy clothes!

Such a ham...

AJ is the silliest kid. Brett was looking at our Utah pics last night, and he was laughing at this clip from the airport. First the funny faces, then the "walk like and Egyptian," then running up to the camera. She just doesn't stop. And she is always telling us she is shy and doesn't like to show off.

I beg to differ...
