Kicking Off Christmas

 Last night was the lighting of downtown New Braunfels.  This event is the start of the Christmas festivities in New Braunfels.  I am looking forward to all the fun of the holidays with the boys. 
 William is such a good brother.  He is always checking on Westin, and playing with him.  
 Westin playing peek a boo.
 No lights.....
 Action....lights are on! 

 Our first glimpse of Santa Clause this year.

Move-in Day.....YEAH!!!!!

 We officially moved in last week.  I feel for people who move a lot.  It sure is a lot of hard work, but well worth it.  We were up until about 3:30am the first few nights trying to get out stuff moved in.  The kids have adjusted very quickly.  Westin and William have been sleeping well and enjoying all the extra space.  In the picture above they are climbing in the storage closet.

 Westin is now able to take about 10 steps at a time.  He has really enjoyed having carpet again.  
 William couldn't wait for daddy to put his bed together on the first night we were in the house.  He slept just fine on his mattress with his pillow pet.

 This year we went through the DeWitt's neighborhood again.  It was another successful night of trick or treating!

Halloween Fun

 A few weeks ago William went on his first field trip to the pumpkin patch.  This was his first time to ride a school bus and he loved it.  I drove behind the bus with my friend Kristal.

 The field trip turned out to be a great learning opportunity.  In this picture William is using a magnifying glass to examine various gourds.
 Does is sink or float?

 This was their favorite center.  
 William planted some pumpkins seeds.  We still have them growing in our window seal.
