Last night Holden spent the night at my Mom and Dad's. My sister wanted to spend some time with him. It's the first time I had been away from Holden since he was a little baby- and then I was busy catching up on my sleep so I didn't have time to think about him being away. It's hard being away from your child! I trust my sister but it still makes me anxious to be away from him. It was nice to have some alone time with Matt though. This was the first year we didn't wake up early to go Black Friday shopping. Usually we are out and about by 4 in the morning, but we decided to sleep in this time. Holden is spending the day with my sister. They are going to the mall to do some shopping, eat lunch, and see Santa Claus. I talked to Holden on the phone this morning and it was so cute. Here's how the conversation went-

Holden: Good Morning!
Me: Good Morning, did you sleep good?
Holden: sleep good
Me: Are you going to see Santa Claus?
Holden: Yep. And going to the store to get nutcracker. We don't have a car.

My sister told me that she had told him he could get a toy today. He wanted to go to Target to get the plane toy he's been wanting (Fisher Price GeoAir). My sister told him they couldn't because she doesn't have a useable car. So that's why he was telling me that. LOL.

I love talking with him on the phone. His little, sweet voice melts my heart. It sounds even better than in person, if you can imagine that.

Me and Matt are about to go shopping or at least looking to see if there are any sales left to be had. I'm sure every place is packed, but I love all the hustle and bustle of this season. It makes it feel like Christmas time!

I hope everyon had a Happy Thanksgiving. Ours was good and I have some pictures to share.. I'll post those soon.

Our Professional Pictures!

A couple of weeks ago I won a drawing for a free one pose portrait package. Of course it didn't end up being free because I can never pick just one pose! LOL. However it did save us some money and I had been wanting to get our pictures made for a while now. I'm pretty happy with how the pictures turned out. Holden wasn't all that cooperative but you couldn't tell it from the pictures!

Way to go Red Raiders!!! Guns Up!

Anybody that knows me knows that I'm not much of a football watching girl. I really don't enjoy football for the most part. However yesterday's game I was definitely hyped up for. Our Texas Tech Red Raiders were playing #1 in the country Texas Longhorns.

It was a HUGE game for Texas Tech. Never in the history of Tech had they beaten a #1 ranked team. Many people were favoring Texas to win but...

That didn't happen!! Texas Tech won 39-33!!!!

It was a very nerve wracking game. Tech dominated the first half but didn't do so well in the 2nd half so it ended up being a little too close for comfort.. but they pulled through!!!

I'm so happy they won. There are so many t-shirt fans for Texas and they annoy me. And sadly some of the UT fans don't even know where UT is!!! A couple years back one of our news stations was interviewing Texas fans. The reporter would ask where UT was located and some people didn't even know! Sad, huh? They just want to be Texas' fans because they win a lot.

Go Tech!!!!!

Happy Halloween!

Argh Mateys!!

The pirate's first look at himself.

Being cheesy!

Just for fun here's a picture of Holden last year dressed as a spider...

And a similar pose this year...

Holden had a great time trick or treating around the neighborhood. We even got him to say "Trick or Treat" a few times even thought he did say it very very quietly. He made out with a lot of loot! When we got home we passed out candy and Holden loved helping give out candy. He kept saying he was giving it to "his friends".:-)

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!!
