San Antonio and other news

Went to San Antonio to watch my brother-in-law graduate BMT!  It was a very fun trip, minus a few little hiccups.  

Ben finally picked cotton!

Waiting for Flig to get his BMT coin


It was FREEZING the day he graduated!

Yay, Disney!

Proud Pop.







We all had a lot of fun.  My only regret is that we didn't get to go to Sea World. :(  One of these days, I WILL get to pet a dolphin.  I WILL.  

Halloween was yesterday, and we were gone for all the parties and what not.  We took Delilah out in her costume (not trick-r-treating), and then stayed home and passed out candy.  Next year will be different, because I'll be able to take her out and go out with friends as well.  




Now the Christmas planning begins.  I'm actually excited about spending Christmas with Ben and Delilah this year (because we won't be able to go back to MO).  It'll be nice to start our own traditions.  Mom said that we'll have a celebration when we come back in Jan.  The last few years, we've done Christmas Eve at my parents' house, then gone to Ben's parents' house to stay the night.  We do Christmas morning with them and then go back to my parents' house.  Back and forth!  We each have traditions, and it's only fair to split it.  This year, will be our little year though.  

I've started to get Christmas cards ready (I know, SO EARLY), but it's because we will be SO BUSY during December...moving, Delilah's birthday, etc...If I can get them all addressed and signed, that would make things easier on me.  We typically send out about 140 cards...family+friends.  We've got a lot of people!


I'm gonna go work on the house a bit more.
