Happy Thanksgiving

 Last Thursday at school, the girls had their Thanksgiving feasts.  Jillian's was at 9:00 am, my class' was at 11:00 am and Jules' was at 11:45 am. I feel like I was running around our school like a mad woman hitting up every feast available to grab pictures and sit with my little ones.  The girls had a great time and I was so happy to share that fun time with them.  Here are some pictures from our Thanksgiving celebrations!

My girls before school.  This was the best shot I got because it was really windy that day!

Jillian's whole Pre-K made a cookbook for the parents.  

Jillian and her Best Buddy Ella.  These two can't do anything at school without eachother!

Jillian and her WONDERFUL teacher, Ms. Beth

Jillian and her friends at school
Ella, Jillian, Joshua (the ladies man), and Maci

I am not sure the Pilgrims and Indians feasted on chocolate-covered donuts and fruit loops...but that is some of what our girls chose to dine on that morning.

Jillian and me...looking quite fit at 6 months pregnant. NOT!!!

Jules at her feast!  
Again, not sure how authentic the Capri sun is to the Thanksgiving feast...but this girl had 2!

Jules and her very favorite teacher Ms. Nancy!  
Her other favorite, Ms. Holly was home with a sick kiddo.

Jules and her buddies, Benjamin and Drew. 
The girl has lots of boy friends.  Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

This is truly Jules' boyfriend, Drew.  She talks about Drew all the time!!!  Ms. Nancy even told me that Drew and Jules hold hands during circle time!  I think that is hilarious.  Jules even pointed out Drew's backpack to me at Target the other day!  I think she has her first crush!

I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween at the World Series!!!

This year on Halloween, we were lucky enough to get to go sit in a suite at The Ballpark in Arlington and watch The Texas Rangers play in The World Series.  (Thanks Mom and Dad!!!!!)  We had pumped the girls up about trick or treating at the game and getting to wear their costumes.  They were both so excited about going even though I am pretty sure they didn't know what was going on.  
The sad part is that Jules had gotten the flu on Thursday before the game on Sunday.  We were not sure if she was going to get to go or not.  But, my doctor told me she would be just fine by Sunday and my parents insisted that we all go since she would have been on meds for 4 days.  So, since she didn't run a fever on Sunday, we decided to take her.  I tell you all this to explain WHY she looks so bad in these pictures.  Poor girl is so pale and has big eyes, that you can just see that she isn't her usual self.  

Anyways...onto Halloween pictures!!!

My little bunny and Minnie Mouse
(Jillian TOTALLY picked her costume because it was the girliest and frilliest!!!)

 Trying to get a good pic of the girls...but the sun was still up and bright!!!

Seth and I at the World Series!!!

My girls watching all the action.  Jules kept calling them Razorbacks or Rangers...she got confused!

Our sad attempt at a family shot

There was very little trick of treating at the ballpark like we had hoped.  Luckily, Summer and Mimi both brought candy and the girls just kept trick or treating with them!

 They got more candy from Mimi than they would have anyways!!!

My bunny at the baseball game

Cousin Ansley made lots of signs for everyone to hold.  Here are the girls cheering on the home team!

Minnie Mouse was very camera shy!  

Nothing like a beautiful baseball field!

The girls having so much fun!
Here is the best shot of MM and the field. She just doesn't look good poor girl!

Best Friends Forever

Aunt K and Mason

Proud to be a Texan!!!!

Jillian and Emerson pretending to be asleep.  Emmy sucks her fingers and here is Jillian trying to suck hers too...only she couldn't really figure it out.

This would have been cute if it weren't blurry!

This was so amazing to watch in real life!  Makes you proud to be an American!  We got to see George W. Bush and George H. Bush come out on the field while W. threw out the first pitch to Nolan Ryan!  It was fantastic!  Everyone in Texas LOVES the Bush families!!!  

I am really sad to say that my camera battery died right before the game started!  Stupid camera.  I have no pictures of my parents which sucks since they took us to this game and treated us to such a fun time!  Thank you Mom and Dad!  We will always cherish our memories of the World Series!!!
