We are SO thankful

I can not believe Thanksgiving is only 2 days away! I have all of my shopping done and I'm ready to enjoy a few days relaxing with the family. We have gone to Josh's Grannie's house ever since our very first Thanksgiving together. But this year she is very sick and in the hospital, so we aren't sure of our plans. It's so sad that she is sick and especially right before Thanksgiving, I'm hoping we will just delay our feast until the weekend when she is feeling better.
I decided to have fall pictures of the kids done this year and send out fall cards, rather than Christmas cards. This was in an effort to minimize my stress during the holidays and planning of Trey's party. (early January) And it totally worked! I'm so glad to have pictures and cards marked off my list of things to do for the holidays. So... without further ado ;)

Pumpkin Patch 2011

We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch this year. We went to a new one that is actually a Christmas Tree Farm and they bring in pumpkins in the fall. The kids and I met my Mom, my cousin and her husband and their kids there. 

 It was a pretty far drive, but we chose to go to this particular pumpkin patch because they had so many activities. They had shopping booths, food and drinks, photo props, a small petting zoo, a slide, a maze, duck races, a train ride, and a hay ride! We did everything but the hay ride. It was so HOT! It's absolutely insane that at the pumpkin patch, in October, it was 90 degrees! The kids were sweating and complaining and the lines were really long. I'm so glad we have finally gotten some nice fall weather here in Southeast Texas.
