Got a tree today

Looked for a tree yesterday at Lowes in Decatur but they were all horribly ugly.  So we went to Home Depot in Roanoke and got this nice little tree for only $30!!  Can't beat that!!  Waiting to decorate it until Alyssa comes home.

Took a tour of West Texas A&M today.  Looked like a nice campus, we've got one more to check out before she makes her decision. 

Dec 5 2010

Drove to Amarillo with Allison to check out West Texas A&M.  Got there early in the afternoon and went to Palo Duro Canyon.

Nov 28 Zoo Day

Great day!! Got up early and went to the zoo with the family!!  Had a fun time and the animals were great!! 

Nov 27 Quiet Day

Started off the day with french toast and sausage!!  Yum!!  Pretty much just chilled at home most of the day then went to church at 5.  The new building is awesome!!!

Nov 26 girls came home

I was supposed to go trail riding today, but the lights on my trailer aren't working for some reason so I stayed home, enjoyed the peace and quiet and cleaned the house up.   Girls got home in the afternoon after a 4 hour drive on 4 hours of sleep!!  
   Olive was happy to have Alyssa come home! 

Nov 25 Happy Thanksgiving.

Long long day.....woke up and it was FREEZING.  Then we had to head off to Mexia.  Didn't know we were eating at noon so I ate crackers all the way there and wasn't hungry when we got there.  Dave came over with his kids who wanted to see the cows.  So we went out in the freezing cold and visited the cows.  I took a million pictures of the kids and the cows of course so it was fun for me!!!

Skippy is so beautiful....

Good day

Pretty relaxing weekend.  Chilled at the house most of yesterday and then John, Allison and I went to Southlake to see Harry Potter.
Today we took Allison to the train station in Fort Worth to spend the week with her sister.  I love the Ft Worth train station.  I really want to take Alyssa down there to take some pictures some day.  She is a more willing model than Allison Lol! 
Then it was off to the commissary in because we were out of EVERYTHING. 
Looking forward to a nice short week at work and then a 4 day weekend!!

Not a lot of ambition this week....I think maybe because it's getting cold out.  Who knows?

Nov 13

Pretty boring day.  Woke up early because the Direct TV people were coming between 9-11...well, that turned into about 1:00!  After that we went to Denton to pick up Allison's Kinsler jersey because Hobby Lobby is dumb and wouldn't frame it right.  Then went to Fry's and then back home and to bed!!  Exciting exciting stuff....

Nov 11

Happy Veterans Day!!!   Once again took my crazy puppies out for a run, but they found out that the farrier had been there earlier in the week and just wanted to eat the leftover hooves on the ground! 

Ivan was watching and hoping I would give him some more food....

Nov 10

Another beautiful North Texas Day.  Really meant to be lazy all morning, but I ended up taking the dogs out for a run before work!  How could anyone resist this sweet face.

Nov 9th

Beautiful fall day...really didn't want to stay home...just wanted to sit on the back porch and look at this all day...

Laundry day

Did laundry for about 12 hours...but had time to stop and take a couple pics of Charlie Kitten...

Nov 6th Crazy long day

Woke up at 5 so we could head to Stephenville Texas to check out Tarleton University for Allison.  It was a nice campus and I think she could be happy there,  but we're going to check out a couple more places and then let her decide. 

On the way home John found out that no one was using the Mavericks tickets so we ended up going.  I really just wanted to go home and go to sleep but I'm glad we went, it was really fun!  Derek Holland was there, and it appears that Jessica Simpson was there too.  


The girls and I went to the World Series game!!  It was an amazing experience and I am so happy we got to go!  It was really sad that the Rangers lost, and the Giants got to celebrate on our field, but after the amazing season the Rangers had I couldn't be too upset.

Poor Griffey got a bath...

Oct 23

Not the weekend I wanted.  Got up and went to the football game, only Texas forgot to show up....the game was awful. They got beat by one of the worst teams ever so we left early.  I still wasn't feeling all that great, so we really didn't do much of anything. 

Oct 22

Not a great day.  Woke up at 5 and was sick.  Apparently I caught the stomach bug that was going around work.  So I barfed for the first few hours of the day, then attempted to get ready to head to Austin for Alyssa's parents weekend.  Thankfully I didn't get sick in the car, but I slept pretty much the whole way there.  I was going to try to go to the parents night dinner, but I just felt too bad. So we decided to skip it and watch Game 6 of the Ranger/Yankee playoff series instead.  Alyssa and Trey came over and watched the game with us so it was still a good time. 
  The Rangers won and are going to the World Series, so although I wasn't happy to be sick, I was happy to see them clinch the series and beat the Yankees!!
