How 'bout them Cowboys!!

The pre-Christmas weekend continued with tickets to the Cowboys vs. Redskins game on December 19th. We checked out of GWL early and got home in time to change, pick up Rob and Dad and head over to the stadium. We had great seats and had so much fun. And the Cowboys won!

Great Wolf Lodge Fun

As part of the kids Christmas from me, I took them to spend a night at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine. I had heard the kids would have a blast, and they did! We spent hours at the indoor water park before having lunch, then going at it again. If I ever go back, I'm suiting up because those water slides looked like a blast!

Thanksgiving 2010

Another Thanksgiving went as quickly as it came, but this year we had two Army specialists joining the family as part of the Mission Thanksgiving program at Ft. Sam. These soldiers are in their job training program so recently completed basic training so we learned alot about Ryan will be going thru next year. It scared the crap out of all of us, but pumped Ryan up and he's even more excited to go.

What Happened to November?

Somehow this blog skipped the month of November! So I'll try to remember what happened of significance...

1. We all know that the Texas Rangers kicked the Yankee's butts, but then lost the World Series to the San Francisco Giants. Texas is still very proud of the Rangers and the great season they had.

2. My oldest nephew, Marcus, moved into an apartment with his friend and at the same time Ryan told his mom that he wanted to join the Army. Michelle had a hard time dealing with the fact that two of her babies were leaving the nest. But she made it thru. :) Ryan will leave for Basic Training in South Carolina in February and will remain there for his job training. This will be the first time a member of our family will be out of state..for, like, a long time. We are all so proud of Ryan, and are happy that he's so excited, but I won't lie. I'm gonna cry like a baby! I've already warned Ryan that I have a passport and will visit him every place he gets stationed!

3. I'm still in school but every day I want to be a beauty school dropout. My message to every kid who just graduated high school -- GO TO COLLEGE NOW!!! It totally sucks to have to study and do homework when you're mentally exhausted after a full day at work. So get that degree(s) when you still have no real obligations and have tons of energy!

4. December 1st was my first year in the townhouse. It's finally completely furnished. :)
