My brother Nick knows how to throw a party! Him and his wife Jennifer put together an amazing tailgate party for the Cotton Bowl. The game was horrbile, but we won't go there. They had everything from food and drinks to a satellite TV to watch the game and even a port-a-potty! Lots of family and friends - good times were had by all!

The first leg of our Christmas travels took place in San Antonio at Yaya and Grandads house. We got to see Aunt Mel, cousin Lane, Grandma Corkey, Aunt June, Grandma Leda and Grandad Amos - it was a house full!!! Before we even started opening up presents, Owen had passed out. Miss Lane took a ride around the house in her little wagon.
The next stop was at Uncle Jim and Aunt Stacy's house in Fort Worth. Pops, Uncle Nick and Aunt Jennifer were also there to celebrate with us. Trey got a motorized four wheeler from Pops for Christmas. This is by far our new favorite toy!! He FINALLY learned how to steer which is a huge relief to our walls and furniture!
Our last stop was at the ranch in Possum Kingdom. Bop Bop, Nick, Jennifer, Jim, Stacy, Uncle Bill, Billie and my cousin Jimmy were all there with us - talk about a packed house!
Pops came over to see his two boys. As soon as he sat down in that chair, Trey ran into his play room. My dad and I were trying to figure out what he was doing when he came back running down the hall with an arm full of books. He climbed into Pops lap and handed him the first book saying, "book book".The two of them sat there for the next 30 minutes reading books. It was so sweet.

Trey went trick-or-treating for the first time!! He was a turtle and Owen was dressed in his Halloween onesie. Ron and I took Trey to a few of or neighbor's houses. He never quite got the hang of saying trick-or-treat, but he definitely knew what his candy bucket was for! After trick-or-treating, Trey hung out at the door with me to hand out candy. He was ok watching all of the little kids come to the door, but as soon as a scary costume would come he would run back inside.
We had some of our friends out to the ranch to watch the Tech vs A&M game... GO TECH!! We all had a great time roasting marshmallows and singing along with Jay around the campfire. I really hope that we can do this every year. In the group picture left to right: Me, Owen (I promise he's there) Corey, Greg, Ron, Trey, Lee, Mel, Lane, Jay, Jodi, Jack and Sam.
