Weekend Fun!

We have been having a great time on the weekends. We have been to the beach a few times and one Saturday met up with Garrison's cousins at Home Depot for the workshop! This weekend we were at the beach and had a great time with family and playing in the sand. Sorry for the months I haven't posted anything. I will try to be better this summer! Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!

Christmas 2009 & New Year's Eve/Day 2010

The weekend before Christmas we spent it in Austin with Tommy and Kari and met up for lunch with Greg, Rebecca, Brock and Priscilla. We had a cupcake on South Congress and enjoyed the trail of lights at Zilker park and the train ride! We had Christmas Eve dinner at our house with Jon's family and then went to his parent's church service. Christmas morning was fun at our house when Garrison saw his bike by the tree. My nephew Ryan spent the week at our house and was with us on Christmas morning and we enjoyed having him here. Then we headed over to my parent's house and had Christmas with them. Then we all headed out to the ranch and had Christmas lunch. My dad gave all the kids a John Deere 4 wheeler so they all loved that. The day after Christmas we went back to the ranch for Megan's 9th birthday. It was great to all be together and celebrate with Megan. She is the sweetest girl and always wants to serve others. She is a blessing to our family! She wore her pink boots and even had cakes made to match her boots by my sister in law, Leigh. New Year's Eve is also my brother's birthday so we celebrated at my parent's house. We had a firework show that Jon and Griff did and the kids enjoyed their sparklers. John turned 35 and what a blessing to celebrate with him this year instead of in the hospital like last year. On New Year's day we had lunch at our house with Jon's family, his brother and family came down from Corpus Christi. After lunch we headed out to the ranch where everyone had a great time on the 4 wheelers. We wish you all a great year in 2010!

Great Wolf Lodge & Big 12 Championship Game

My parents took our whole family up to Dallas to enjoy the Great Wolf Lodge. We had a great time as a family and the kids loved the indoor waterpark. I think the entire weekend it was in the 40's outside and we were swimming and playing inside in 84 degree water. We had such a great time. What a neat place for kids! That same weekend a group of us went to the Big 12 Championship game and UT scared us all but in the end we won! Jon and my cousin Tommy were nervous since they had already bought tickets to the National Championship game. We were all excited and we had a great time with everyone at the game. Even my brother John (an Aggie) was cheering for UT! It was a great weekend with all our family. We are so blessed and thankful John is back with us!

Happy Halloween!

On Wednesday night we went to the First Presbyterian Church fall festival. This is Jon's parents church as well as Garrison's preschool that he goes to on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. His cousins were so cute, Noah as a cowboy and Joshua as a cow! Garrison had a great time and enjoyed the ring toss, bean bag throw and the cake walk even though we didn't ever win a cake! He also liked the fishing game and decorating a cookie and then eating it! We hope everyone has a safe and happy halloween!

Pumpkin Patch

We met Jon's sister Leigh and her family at the pumpkin patch on Sunday. It was a beautiful day outside and there were plenty of pumpkins to choose from. Garrison and Noah enjoyed picking a pumpkin out to take home!
