Thanksgiving Dinner

We had a great Thanksgiving afternoon!Dad was the first to be sitting with a full plate.Sam loves having cousins around. She completely skipped her nap and ate cheese & crackers all day long.I was in charge of water. Ray was in charge of all other food items...sounds like a deal to me!I made every effort to get recipes and cooking tips.Everything I could steal is on my recipe blog.

Singin' with Sam

Sam loves country music!
This may, or may not, be due to my heavily biased influence. We faithfully listen to Sugarland when we are in the car. She will dance and sing and demand her favorite songs "AGAIN!" and again and again. For now, her singing consists of only the last word of each sentence.
"I was already GONE."

I secretly (well, not so secretly now) want Sammie to have that same twangy-country accent!

Katy vs Mayde Creek

Blake finally got to experience a highschool football game - Texas Sized!
Michelle and I went to Mayde Creek (on the drill team)...and Ray went to Katy (played football).
What will Sammie want to do when she is in highschool?
