We got her in the country and now she is CITY LIVIN!

Look at this face... wouldn't you buy her anything she wanted.... YES!

On the first day that Belle came into the family she met Uncle David.... HER favorite person. She was so scared to be near anyone but she would climb all over David... they bonded fast!!

David and I were invited to go to the Texas Tech vs. Missouri Game! We were so excited to go! It turned out to be an awesome game... on the way to the game we didn't think that Tech would have a chance but they played great (unlike a team called OU) and it was a fun time with GREAT friends!
The girls!

My Aunt, Uncle & Cousin Dustin always come for Thanksgiving and we have our traditional Wednesday Soup Night, Movie Time, Thanksgiving Feast & then up at 3:50 for BLACK FRIDAY. I don't just like Thanksgiving for those reasons I love Thanksgiving because I'm able to reflect on all the things that I'm thankful for. I know it's the beginning of the month, but I have so many things to be thankful for that I thought I would start making my thankful list.

Halloween 2010 - Toy Story Style

We have many traditions in my family.... just ask David! One of my favorite traditions started with my sister, when I was little and that was Halloween. In first grade my sister Stephanie did my make up and hair for me because I was Miss Arkansas 1990. I was smokin! From that year on, when Stephanie lived in Arkansas we went Trick or Treating together. One year I remember it was SO cold, I mean beyond cold, that you couldn't even wear a costume. Steph and I wore layers upon layers and went out in the cold, windy night. Little to say we did not chicken out, we spend the whole night till probably nine knocking on doors. We had a method, since no other kids were out we would go to the doors and ask for candy so we got more for our efforts. Secondly, we wanted to seem like we didn't have that much candy so we would have a paper bag in the car that we dumped our candy into before going to the next house... All I can say is we had 4 full bags by the end of the night and I was a size 22 in 4th grade! Ha! :)
Here are the highlights from Halloween this year 2010:
