Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Hello friends and family! We had a great Thanksgiving Day. We really missed our families in California, but we had our niece Samantha with us and having family here really made the day special. We went to our friend's the Halladay's. They have a big Thanksgiving with everyone who does not have family in Texas. The kids had a blast playing and we really felt the warmth of the holidays. To top off our day, we took a little drive through our downtown area to look at the Christmas lights. (I have posted a pic of the tree lined street) Last but not least... the lights on our house are up and shining! I hope this day finds everyone in good spirits and good health! Without further delay... Here are pics of our day...

Andi was Baptized on November 3rd!

It was a very nice day for the family. Andi took the "eternal dive" (lol) and I was very proud of her. The best part was that she was baptized by her Dad. I am very proud of my husband for being such a great dad and for being worthy to baptize our daughter. This day was a little bitter sweet because it is the first "big moment" for us here in Texas that we did not have our old Ward (church) members with us. We are making such wonderful new friends here in our new Ward as you can see from the pics of those who participated in Andi's baptism, but my heart still aches for our "old" ward family. That same night we went to a church activity that was held on a farm where we made Smore's and took a hayride. At the end of the day, we were all so tired, but it was a great day.

Later that night...

Poopie is talking more and more. I don't have it on this clip, but he can also say Pumpkin, Fire Truck, and he just learned to say... NO!!!! Yipee. I was not waiting for that one. lol! Anyway, here is my baby...

I thought I would throw in these pics to remind me of how far he/we have come. He was soooo small when we brought him home... 4lbs 11oz. Now he is bigger than any of the kids his age. They moved him to the two year old class at his school last week because he was to big to be with the "babies" in his own age group. Where has my little fragile baby gone?

Meeting Poopie for the first time... He was 3 days old. We took him home that same night. I have to say that the moment caputured in this pic was a difining moment in my life.
Poopie at 5 days old. He was in a Pack-N-Play that our friend Amy Frandsen let us borrow. Since we had not idea we were getting a baby that night, everything we had was borrowed. Thank goodness for our friends from our Church and our families.

Poopie's adoption in December 2006. Everyone here with us is a really special part of our church family. We RELLY miss them.

Ok. I think I am finished with my Poopie Post. Why does time have to fly by so qucikly as a parent? Andi is getting baptized tomorrow and Miguel has grown almost two inches since his last DR's visit. Slow down time! At this rate, they will all be getting married right around the corner. Oh Man, I am soooo old. The big 3-0. To me, I feel like I graduated High School last week. How can I be 30? I am going to go now and bury my head in the sand for a while. Have a nice day. :)
