Happy November! Oh wait, it's December...oh well!

What a fun November we had!! I wasn't in the mood to blog much this month, but it doesn't mean we didn't dance right through the month! ;)

Both Kennedy and Landon have been into Toy Story 3 this month and they have been fun to watch with all the leaps from couch to chair shouting "To infinity and beyond!" I just love their creativity and listening in on their playtimes. It's also making it fun and easy to pick out christmas gifts this year, not that it was ever hard!! ;) Now, shopping for lance, that's a different story!

I have had to take both kids to our fantastic ENT doctor here in town, Dr. Neal, several times this month and we are scheduled to have tubes put in both Kennedy and Landon's ears this Thursday. I am so glad since BOTH (but more with Landon) of their hearing has had elevated hearing loss and it makes it extremely hard to communicate. Both have a lot of fluid behind the ear drums and Landon will also have a sinus cleaning out after the xrays came back with congestion in his sinus cavities. Landon's hearing has been bad since early September and Kennedy has had ear infections and PLENTY of snot since last March. So this is a long time coming and I am glad, yet worried at the same time. It always makes me nervous when little ones go under, but I know they are in great hands.

On some brighter notes (sort of! ha!)...my 35th birthday came and went. Lance took me on a fun weekend in Dallas while my parents kept the kids. Lance and I got to go to a Mavs game, did some shopping, got some pampering, and went to the Cowboys game. Glad to witness the struggling Cowboys win their first home game this season. And we were with great company!

Holly, Nancy, and Shelley were some of the sweet girls to join us at the Cowboy stadium
Birthday dinner with my brother, sister in law, cousin and aunts!
Lance and I at the Mavericks game, just 6 rows behind the visitors bench! It was fun sitting with some of the Chicago Bulls assistant coaches who were not allowed on the bench.

Then came Thanksgiving. I got to go to Landon's school and have a Thanksgiving feast with his class. And it was cute seeing all the kids dressed up. Landon's class made their own 'indian' outfit and his indian name was the "bear hunter".

The kids and I had a blast during their school break and it flew by. On Thanksgiving day we started out with lunch at Squire Creek with Lance's parents and then we drove to Bossier to be with my parents along with my brothers and other relatives. We watched the Saints/Cowboys game and headed back to Ruston. The kids were pooped and so were we! But it was a great day with family and it makes me so thankful for the people I have in my life. I am so blessed!!!

And here are just a couple of shots that i took earlier in the month.... have a great week everyone!

I will definitely keep the kiddos in my prayers this Thursday. I know the feeling but also know that God is in control. So glad you had a wonderful birthday! You are a great friend. I know we don't always see a lot of each other, but when we do it's easy to pick up where we left off. You are so fun to be around!! Hope to see you soon. Hugs!!
