November... so far

November started out with my cousin Michelle's wedding in Austin.  Nick and I went by ourselves, which was fun - we couldn't remember the last time that only the two of us did something together.  It was probably 12 years ago or more!  It was a fun wedding and we got to see some of our out-of-state family again!

We had some fun in the photo booth!
Tyson's soccer season ended. Just like the spring season, his first goal scored was in the last game of the season.  It was a nice one that sailed into the back right corner!

This is what playing goalie looked like for our team this season - basically no action because we destroyed everyone :)

"Good game!  Sorry we scored tons of goals (not really)!"
The end of the year party was at a local Mexican restaurant.  They had an outdoor patio with an inflatable slide, which the kids kept piling on.  Hailey was right in the mix with the bigger kids - poor girl came away from that with some bruises - but she was laughing the whole time!

Most of the team - one is missing (only 8 this time!)

An unexpected attraction - mechanical bull! We assumed the kids were too little but the guy operating it made it go really slowly for them. They loved it!

We took Tyson to the pediatrician a few weeks ago and we just happened to mention that he's a good artist. He loves to draw! She said they are having patients make all of the paintings for their new office, and she gave Tyson an art packet to make his own painting! There were certain guidelines, and limited colors, so this is what he came up with. It will be framed with a plaque with his name and age on it in the new office!

"Flying Fish"
Last weekend, some of our college friends decided to throw an impromptu guys weekend and go camping.  Kyle and Micah came to our house on Friday night on the way down.  Micah got in some good forced reading quality time with Hailey!  She warmed right up to him even though she hasn't seen him in months.

After the guys left, the kids and I headed down to Boling, TX to visit Kelly and Jude!  They're living in a nice house with tons of land behind it.  We had a great time playing with Jude, and mommy and Kelly stayed up WAY too late having fun and talking that night after the kids went to bed (totally worth it though)!
