This weekend we also celebrated Hannah's 5th birthday. Her actual birthday is on Tuesday but we got to celebrate early. Steve and I haven't made it to her birthday party in awhile so I was especially glad to be there with her this afternoon. She wanted to have it at Chuck E. Cheese which was lots of fun with games and loudness. She enjoyed being the birthday girl! It is hard to believe that she is 5 yrs. old. My how time flies! Steve and I had just gotten married when she came to us from China. My sister makes the best birthday cakes and I can't wait for her to make my little girls cakes one day. Happy Birthday Hannah!

The first was Enchanted by Disney. I have always loved fairy tales so when you add Patrick Dempsey (hello Dr. McDreamy!) you can bet I will be there. It is a very "cute" movie. I loved Amy Adams as the princess, she does a great job with all the princess mannerisms. We laughed A LOT.
The second we saw was August Rush. This is one for those music lovers out there. The story is great and the music is superb. I have always enjoyed movie soundtracks and can't wait to get this one as well. The kid who plays the little boy is wonderful.
Along with going to see movies this week I also bought Hairspray which is a favorite from the summer. So, hope you had a great holiday weekend and if you get a chance check out these great family movies.

I hope everyone had a delightful Thanksgiving. Ours was spent enjoying my mom's awesome cooking and good family time. We spent the day at my parents house with our friend Alicia. I love eating turkey but only on Thanksgiving. After that I am finished, no more thank you.
Since today is Black Friday we decided to see how much damage we could do. We usually are up early hitting the stores at 5am. This year we decided that there wasn't anything worth getting up that early for. I really enjoyed sleeping late and still getting some shopping in. I did get some Christmas gifts which is always a good thing. I also got me some things :)
We are now enjoying a nice warm fire since it actually is cold outside (thank goodness). I ordered our Christmas cards and we have finished decorating for the Christmas holidays. It has been a busy three days off so far. I am looking forward to the weeks leading up to Christmas. We have many holiday plans and I can't wait to get started so here is an early MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

It was great to see everyone again! The last time we were all together was at Eric and Jennifer's wedding this past June. They are both coaches in Frisco so you can imagine how busy their fall has been. We look forward to seeing Eric coach some bball games this spring. It was so fun to get to know Jennifer better. We had a great time talking and catching up on the world of education.
Since Mickey and Kirby live in Amarillo (about 7 hours from Waco) we try to see them at least a few times each year. The past two times have been in locations other than Amarillo which makes it easier for us to see them. We always spend New Year's with Steve's family which has been a wonderful Christmas treat and something that we look forward to doing again this year!!

The rest of the weekend was spent with me sitting upright trying to fend off allergies. I guess spending Friday and Saturday outside did me in. Oh, let the allergy season begin! I have my kleenex and vaseline handy so hopefully I will survive :)
Bonus for today is that the school kids are at home and we have meetings all day. Of course, for a teacher it is really hard to sit and listen. I hope the day goes quickly!

This week has been great with some cool weather finally making it feel like fall. We always 'celebrate' the lower temps by making taco soup on that first cold night. Oh how I love taco soup :) After being under the weather all weekend it was nice to feel good again and enjoy fall.

It was wonderful last night to hear the rain and thunder. Although I am not a big fan of Thunderstorms what it brought with it was much needed. Looks like it is going to be in the 80s most of the week so that is a good sign that fall is on the way.
