Visiting Santa!

Well, we thought it would be great for the kids to go and see Santa since they were all together this weekend. Mary was excited to see him and talk to him. Amy HATED sitting on his lap. Brady was just happy as he could be sitting with Santa.

Dinosaur Trail and weekend fun

On Friday night we tried a new place, Palio's Pizza, which is right around the corner from the house. It was DELICIOUS! and we can't wait to add it as a regular place. On Saturday morning we made another trip out to the Heard Museum. We took the Laughlin Loop this time, which is aka the Dinosaur Trail from Oct to Jan 31. I was worried Mary might freak out and she did. Not too bad, but she was ready for the hike to be over! She walked behind William so he could protect her for most of the trip. The trail was beautiful in the fall. Then in the evening we went to church and then to Rudy's BBQ...delicious again, especially when it's a birthday treat from Aunt Paige! Then Sunday I felt horrible...sinus problems. I tried to do some cleaning, but felt tired and achy. I went to the doctor today while the kids were at specials. I have a sinus infection. So I'm on antibiotics and got a shot! I don't think I've had one since jr. high! Hopefully I can breath tonight and won't see every hour on the clock tonight like I did last night!

Halloween Weekend

Granny came up for Halloween weekend. She got here in time on Friday to pick up the girls from school and daycare. We enjoyed dinner out at Girmaldi's Pizza and the night at home. On Saturday, we got up to do some pumpkin carving and shopping at Allen Outlets. Then it was time for lunch at home. Mary helped me make Granny's birthday cupcakes. Then everyone took a nap. We went to Saturday evening mass and then came home to eat. We quickly got in our costumes and headed out to do some trick or treating! The weather was wonderful! After a few houses, I came back home to pass out candy. Then we went over to Hunter's house for a quick visit and then drove over to see Ms. Debbie. This is who Amy stays with during the week. Then it was time to get home and eat some CANDY! Then on Sunday we slept in, even with the extra hour of sleep. We hung out around the house, did some cleaning, and I fixed fried chicken for lunch. After lunch we celebrated Granny's birthday a few days early. Then Granny got packed up and left when it was nap time.
