Happy Thanksgiving

It snowed today. What a wonderful surprise on Thanksgiving! I'm sure you Yankees are not excited about this, but down in Texas where snow is a rare occurrence, it was a pleasant Thanksgiving treat.

Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday.

The Thanksgiving Feast

On top of the day's sickness drama, it was the Thanksgiving Feast at Hunter's Preschool. Everyone got a line, Hunter's was "Its cold here, I'm not used to the winter." or something like that. He pulled it off, spoke loud and probably will be the actor in the family. Also of note is that of the three pilgrim girls directly behind him, two are his "ex-girlfriends". He is one hot ladies man.

It was an absolutely darling performance, the dress rehearsal went off without a hitch. During the actual performance one girl stopped and started with OK and then got the giggles. It was the most adorable thing. Then the kids started yelling the lines instead of speaking them. The teachers did an awesome job to put together a great play & get 14 four & five year olds to actually remember and deliver their lines. YEA TEACHERS!

Exciting Nights!

I am in Sinus Infection HE double toothpicks! Both boys have sinus infections, they are coughing like there is a foreign body that needs to come out and now Ethan has a headache and is actually laying in bed.

Last night was crazy and at 12:30 we decided to move Mr. Hunter into bed with me and Mason slept in his bed in the same room as Ethan. At 1:00 Hunter got some more decongestant. From 1:00 to 1:30 Hunter & I were watching the Pink Panther on Cartoon Network & at 1:30 Hunter took a hot steamy shower. By 2:00 he was breathing out of his nose and sleeping like a rock. Ethan on the other hand did really good from 11:00 to about 5:30 when he started coughing like a cat hocking up a fur ball.

Both boys took hot showers and compared the color of the snot they coughed up (oh joy!) and Hunter is way farther ahead of Ethan on the getting better scale, however Ethan has been suffering longer so he probably has more to get over.

Happy Thanksgiving to us!!

Like our new night time visitor? I keep telling Mason we have a visitor on the side of the house. Of course I was expecting a cat or a Peeping Tom - not this. YUCK!

Yee Haw!!

We took the boys to the Texas Stampede tonight and the boys say Bareback Riding, Steer Wrestling, Saddle Bronc Riding, Tie Down Roping, Barrel Racing & Ethan's personal favorite the Bull Riding. We were even lucky enought to get the behind the shoot passes. It was a great way to start the evening.

The boys had a great time!

A new house for me(ow)!

Look, the humans got me a new house. Unfortunately they are working on the ugliest paint job ever, someone take away those boys crayons!
Mario, the cute and obnoxious one.

Thank you Husband dear.

While I was in Las Vegas (can I say that enough?) my husband cleaned most of the house. He cleaned the playroom, the front room and the kitchen den. He even did laundry and folded and put things away. My husband is not a folder, nor is he a put-away kind of guy. I did find Hunter's clothes in Ethan's drawer and Ethan's clothes in Hunter's drawers, but that doesn't matter. He did it and I appreciate it.

Friday Night Chaos

While I was enjoying myself in Vegas, Mason took most of Ethan's soccer team to a Dallas Stars Hockey game. Something like 10 kids - sounds a little hectic to me, but what do I care I was in Vegas.
