A Very Peppery Thanksgiving

We stayed in Texas for Thanksgiving and hung out with the Peppers. Kevin and Martha came up from College Station and we all stayed the night in Mansfield for a couple days.

Happy Thanksgiving!! (We also celebrated Dad Pepper's birthday on Thanksgiving. Happy birthday, Dad Pepper!)

I made an apple pie and mashed taters! YUM!!

And of course, Drew and I went and did our traditional Black Friday shopping. Which all revolved around Luke. Like he NEEDS anything! This was our fourth year of going shopping on Black Friday together!

Saturday night we went and bowled and played arcade games at Alley Cats and then got pizza.


And when we got home...

Christmas time!!! Let's decorate!

(Since this picture, the tree has been moved twice, has all the decorations on it, and has presents under. Updated picture to come soon.)

It's been CUT!!

Yes, Luke's wonderful curly hair has finally been cut.

I have been DREADING cutting his hair for two reasons:

1. It's curly. Moms stop me in the grocery store to tell me how they cut their boys' curly hair as a baby and the curls never grew back. (Thanks for the info.)

2. It's blond. Actually, the edges are blond and the roots are growing in brown. I like it blond.

Sooo...I've been postponing the inevitable. Last night we decided to bite the bullet and cut it.

Before Pictures:


LOOK! Still blond AND curly!! Hallellujah.

What was I even stressing about? Here's a pic of him after church today. PRECIOUS.

And...all the hair we ended up cutting off:

Ice Cream Addiction

I think Drew is addicted to ice cream. Which is better than a lot of other options out there, but it's still an addiction. defines addiction as: (n) A habitual or compulsive involvement in an activity, such as gambling.

In Drew's case, the activity is eating ice cream. I believe addiction also involves a substance: ice cream.

Wal-Mart recently had Blue Bell ice cream for $3/half gallon and we bought three. When there was already three half gallons in the freezer at home.

I don't think Drew's very worried about his addiction.

Random Happenings

1. Luke has been obsessed with VeggieTales. Which means I know EVERY song by heart.

2. My son is adorable.

3. We have been watching a LOT of baseball recently. And then the Rangers lost.

4. Luke was the absolute cutest Superman ever recorded in Halloween history.

5. Drew turned 27! He got an awesome bat from his parents, a hat from my parents, and a T-shirt from me and Luke.
