Christmas Tree is Up

November 11, 2012: Our tree got up & decorated way early this year. Yay!! Emma Kate was thrilled about the tree & patiently waited as I (frustratedly) got the ribbon on it first. Then, sissy got to put on every ornament with Daddy's help up high. Jackson put up less than 5! Not interested & he was much happier playing an ipad game ha!
This is our 2nd year with the fake tree & it was pretty nice to not mess with the lights.
Now to tackle the mantle, staircase, & put the wreaths up.

So pretty at night

A Grapevine Family Outing

Saturday, November 10, 2012: We ventured out to SEA Life in Grapevine & then to The Rainforest  Cafe as a fun family outing a couple of weeks ago. I often forget how close we are to Grapevine, and we decided to head out there to see these sights. SEA Life was a real neat place (smaller than a regular size aquarium), but with so many sea creatures. Fish, stingrays, starfish, octupus, & sharks. It's very kid geared. Emma Kate looked at the animals longer than Jackson, but both don't have super long attention spans & were happy to see the indoor play area there.
Both kids enjoyed The Rainforest Cafe. The indoor waterfall was right behind our table. EK said to me "Mommy, it's not supposed to rain inside!"
Sorry for lack of photo quality. It was dark & has weird lighting inside.

Cutest lunch date next to me :)

Fall Arborteum 2012 (Part 2)

Our attempt at getting a family pic. It's pretty humorous simply trying to get one where everyone is looking & smiling.


Trying another background. First take not so much.
Almost perfect (minus the drink in mouth.)
Our winner :)
Common Daddy!

Full speed

My love & I. Picture only happened because Sara was with us. Thank you. :)
Taking a walk with Auntie Sara. :)

Girl pic. Not a bad shot since it was taken by my 2 1/2 year old.
Sweet Man & I

After 3 hours...Done!
