Wonderful Weekend

Justin and I headed out to Mesquite Friday evening to get a start on our Christmas shopping. We found some really good sales and got the biggest portion of our shopping done. I'm so relieved. I am not a shopper!

When we got home Sunday night, we went to pick up Jacob at my parent's house and then off to get my brother's kids. Greg & Mandy both had to work yesterday and today so I offered to keep the kids so they could have a break and the kids wouldn't have to get up early. We have had so much fun. I love that my brother lives in the same town and I get to be close to his kids.

Tomorrow I'm going to brave the crowds and go get groceries. I intended to do it all on our way back home Sunday night, but I was tired of shopping and tired of the crowds. Thursday we are headed to Arlington to see the Dallas Cowboys play. I'm trying to talk Justin in to taking my Dad and letting Mom & I cook and relax! Friday afternoon we are having our Thanksgiving meal here at my house. I'm making lots of food and I can't wait to spend some time with my family.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Almost made it.

First off, look at this sweet picture of my Daddy

I love this man!!

Here's one of my parents with my son and nephew on Grandparent's Day at school

I love having them working here at the school so I can see them all the time.

Two more days of school and we are off for a whole week! Woo-Hoo!!! This weekend Justin & I are going to Dallas for some Christmas shopping and to celebrate my birthday which was this past Sunday.

On Thanksgiving Day we will be in Arlington. This is where we will be:

I bought Justin tickets because he has always wanted to go see the Cowboys play. His Poppa Roy instilled a deep love for the Cowboys and I was excited to be able to do this for him. I'll be taking a lot of pictures!
