New Moon!!

Before the movie we had a "going away" dinner for our good friend Melanie. She and her family moved to UT so we had a little get together to say goodbye!!
Me and Michelle- I miss v.t-ing with you!!!
Lisa, Patti, Melanie and Michelle
Me and my Scentsy Sista, Staci at the movie- we got there about 3 hours early and saved about 15 seats. I'm sure I ticked a bunch of people off but darn it- you should have gotten there earlier!
Danielle finally showed up and we had some serious fun with our camera's- heck, we had like 2 hours to kill so we walked around taking pictures of silly stuff!

She didn't want any of her popcorn flavoring to go to waste!!
Danielle boosting me up closer to my Edward!
Us rubbing it in that we got tickets to a SOLD OUT show baby!!!
Give me a break- it was midnight for heaven's sake!!


This is the place where we eat every year and it's awesome. Buffet style so everyone is happy and there's no prep work or clean up involved!!!
After eating we drove over to the Great Wolf Lodge and walked around. The place was all decorated so we spent some time there walking around and playing.

My birthday cookie!!!

Good bye Honda!!


Date Night!

Throw back to the 80's!!!
A group of us got together and decided to dress up from the 80's and go roller skating. It was such a fun night!!
Randy gettin' a little squeezed!!!
Me and Emily at dinner. My hair was sooooo flammable!!!
Becca and Randy
Me and Ben- he didn't dress up (party pooper) but I sported my New Kids on the Block shirt, a waisted belt and put my hair up in a side ponytail and ratted the heck out of it!
Carrie totally rocked the "80's hair band groupie" look!!
Poor Becca needed a little help!!
All of us at dinner. We got the strangest looks from people and I'm not sure why!
Funny story (okay, not really) just after I took this picture he totally ran right into a little boy- you can kind of see him right in back of John. We all felt soooo bad!!
We are just lookin' so SWASSY!!!!
Lovin' the roller blading!!!
Emily helping Becca out in the "little kid" area!!
This cute little girl hung out with us so I skated with her for a while. She ended up totally being able to do all these tricks and was such an awesome roller skater (those are her personal pink skates!).

My Birthday

My 29th Birthday!!!
(Okay so maybe add a couple more years onto that but we all get the picture right?)
So this year my b-day fell on Thanksgiving which was nice because the whole family was together for the whole day!!!
What wasn't nice was that I had a killer sinus infection the whole holiday break but we still managed to get out to Furr's and eat our traditional Thanksgiving Lunch!
I got totally spoiled with a new phone and camera so the following pictures are of the kids trying out the new camera!!
I got the "This Is It" soundtrack (Michael Jackson) and the kids wanted to dance for us.

Colben took this picture and I think it's the cutest thing in the world of big D

What a handsome boy he is!!!

Fun Stuff in October

So the month of October started out with Colben's School Fall Festival. The kids had a lot of fun and the school really out-did itself this year!
Colben got his hair spray painted- 2 colors!!
Danika fishing for prizes!
On our way out- kids are happy!!
Ward Trunk-or-Treat!!!
Seriously- could they be a cuter "Super Hero" couple?
It was raining outside so all the parents went to different rooms in the church and the kids got to walk around (some more than once!) and trick or treat.

Pumpkin carving contest- we don't joke around here- those are power tools you see there!

No one was going to carve this one up!!
My good friends- the Greens- they dressed up like eachother- John even shaved his legs!!
The night before Halloween (don't mind the date on the picture) we got together with some friends and walked around downtown McKinney- they have a Ghost Tour there and it's so fun.
Me and Becca!!
Collin County Prison
Actual gate they used wayyy back when. Behind is where they would hang the prisoners.
Okay so maybe some of us need some "kissy face" practice!
Some random Dinosaur with children's shoes in its mouth!
Long Story but a very funny one!!!
Danika got really sick the day before so she stayed in the car with Ben while we hurried and ate inside our friend's house. We pushed her in the stroller away from everyone while they all trick- or-treated but halfway through she told us she felt better and wanted to go out and walk around and she was a total trouper!
I swear- I have this exact same picture from last year- I don't know why I have to take the "obligitory old house" picture but I do.
Danika and Jonah- when she felt better and was walking around he stayed with her the whole time. He's so sweet!

This guy's house was totally decked out. I thought it would scare big D but she loved it!
