Happy Thanksgiving!

This morning Kirk and I asked Holland to say "Happy Turkey Day," and she did it on the first try! She would also say, "gobble gobble" a couple of times for us. We hung out at home and then went over to my Mom's for supper. We had a good time and Holland loved pumpkin pie, or as she would call it, "punkie pie".

After we ate, it was time to watch Texas A&M play Univ of Texas. Go Aggies! Here's Holland with her second cousin, Teagan, both rooting for their favorite teams. :)

Touchdown Aggies!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Our little elf

This holiday season has been so much fun with Holland. She wants to help and is so curious. I wanted to decorate the weekend before Thanksgiving this year to get the tree up and done with early. Holland was a little apprehensive at first when we just had the tree up. She was scared to walk by it without us, so she would crawl to get by it. It was so cute. The next day we started putting ornaments on the tree and Holland loved it! She would pull out an ornament, bring it to us, and then go get another one. Once the ornaments were on the tree, she was mesmerized and wanted to point out every Santa and ball.

I think my Mom has the most beautiful tree, and I know my tree will never be as pretty. But here is the finished product. I'm missing the tree skirt because our cat will lay on it and tear it up if we put it down.

Fall portraits

We met up with Dixie yesterday for our family fall portraits. It was fun until Holland got cranky because it was nap time. We fed the ducks and geese, and Holland had a fun time watching them. Here are a couple of Dixie's shots she got.

These were so much fun! Thanks Dixie - you are the best!
