let me start off by saying that i love the cowboys. i love watching football and i have wanted to go to a game for as long as i can remember. thursday night alan said i could open a present early. i opened it and it was a pair of binoculars. i was like thanks?! then he gave me an envelope and it had tickets to sunday's game against the giants! i was so surprised and excited. i can't believe he bought the tickets in october and kept the secret that long. i have the best husband ever!

the game was so much fun. i was surprised at how loud the fans are - through the ENTIRE game. we yelled on every giants third down, kickoff, punt, field goal, etc. it was a blast! then on the way out to the car everyone was still fired up and yelling. it was crazy. when we got to the game it was seventy three outside and when we got back in the truck it was like forty three degrees. it was all worth it though because the cowboys won!

my birthday

i had so much fun on my birthday. grayson woke me up bright and early and then alan gave me tickets to the mavericks game that night. i went to lunch with my mom, leslie, and melissa to rosa's. lona and my mom made me a cake and the girls at work had a giant chocolate chip cookie cake thing.

at the mav's game it was so cold that it started snowing! the game went into double overtime and they ended up losing to the spurs. but it was a lot of fun - thank you alan.

i got to celebrate with my family on saturday night at my parents house. alan grilled steaks and my mom cooked. jill brought the cutest cake ever!

de la hoya fight

alan asked me during the week if he could invite a few people over to watch the de la hoya fight. i said sure - a few people - no big deal. it turned into a lot of people coming over and it was a really fun night! de la hoya lost just like we thought he would! alan made elk chili, elk steaks, antelope steaks and a whole lot of other sides ( i think he really enjoys entertaining)!

little tony romo

grayson went to work dressed up as cowboys quarterback tony romo! we tried to wrap up his pinky finger but he didn't like it so we just settled for this....

dove hunting

alan, larry, grayson, me, and my parents went dove huniting on opening day at my aunt elaine's ranch in ranger, texas. we had so much fun and we even got a few dove. elaine and dave made us feel at home and cooked breakfast for us and let us join in skeet shooting. i didn't get any pictures of alan and larry b/c they were already in their "hunting" spots when i got the camera out.

here are the totals:
alan: 7 : his goal was 10 so he got close! he definitely did better than last year.
grayson: 0 : of course - he's a baby.
larry: 0 : it was a new gun so that is ok!
jennifer 3 my first time to actually get any - i was so excited!
daddy 4 i almost beat my dad! i think i surprised him.

happy birthday daddy and mammaw

my dad's birthday and my grandmother's birthday are both on october 4th so we always celebrate them together. this year we had celebrated at el fenix. happy birthday!

grayson's first sleepover

grayson stayed overnight at larry and evelyn's house for the first time on 10/17. i'm pretty sure he didn't miss alan and i at all! we missed him though. i knew he was in good hands but i just like seeing him and playing with him so it was a little hard. it was odd not having to think about diapers, and feeding schedule, and things like that. it was definitely nice to have a break and to be able to sleep in with my hubby! thank you evelyn and larry!

grayson update

our baby is growing so fast. he is in 12-18 month clothes now and is crawling all over the place. he loves peek-a-boo and peeking around objects. he has a big smile that lights up his whole face! his favorite place at work is asleep is in his grandpa's arms listening to him sing "you are my sunshine." he giggles when i read to him and looks at every page intently. he loves going to work with me and getting to see his daddy during the day. we are so blessed!

fishing at hamm's creek

alan and i took an impromptu fishing trip on a friday afternoon a few weeks ago to hamm's creek. i spotted four deer running down the creek bed and alan caught a few fish.
does it look bigger if it is closer to the camera?
