I have a new nephew!

Introducing... Wyatt Karlson Lander
Congrats Lander Family!

We had to show off our niece and nephew

Eric's sister Deidra e-mailed new pics of the kids and they are soooo cute!

We had a GREAT Thanksgiving!

Our day started bright and early with a Church Turkey Bowl game. :) Eric did great but Poopie was concerned when he saw daddy dive on the ground. He ran on the field to ask Daddy if he was ok. lol Then we went home to cook and clean before our guests arrived at 3pm. Everyone brought so much food so when you combined all of our goodies, you could have fed an army! :) The food was GREAT and best of all, the COMPANY was terrific! We had the Cochran's, Carlson's and the Gallacher's over for this special day. (20 people and 11 of those were kids!:) Another awesome visitor who stopped by was our birth mom! I got to feel baby girl move in her tummy. It was GREAT!

We ate, watched the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special and played games. The party didn't wind down until 10pm! :) Thanks so much for the wonderful Thanksgiving everyone! I would like to end by saying that I am soooo thankful for my family, life, friends, animals, home, Texas and church. I am very truly thankful.

It was so hard for Poopie to stay on the sidelines. He said he was a little grown up so he wanted to play too. :)

More free family fun...

We drove over to the park tonight to have some family time. The leaves were changing, the lake was tranquil and the night was beautiful. What a great Sunday this has been.

Look at them!

Are they good looking or what? :) I was noticing how cute they all are after we got home from church. The best part is... they are MINE! :)

Andi's Choir Program

Andi had her 4th grade Veteran's Day program tonight and it was GREAT!
We LOVE her school and we are so proud of Andi.
