We made our annual trek to Austin for the Chuy's toy parade this past Saturday, in spite of the rain. I was determined to go, and was thankful when the rain stopped right as the parade was beginning. Our friends, the Blantons, joined us, and we all ate at Hula Hut after the parade (another tradition). The kiddos enjoyed seeing the big balloons (smurf, coke bear, reindeer), the marching bands, Tow Mater replica, and costumed characters (stormtroopers, Darth Vader, super heroes). Lots of fun!
We enjoyed celebrating Thanksgiving with Uncle Gary, Aunt Glenda, and Cousin Hayley, and our new neighbors even came for dessert and scrabble. Glenda and Hayley brought all of the supplies to help the boys make a fabulous gingerbread house AND train, complete with gummy army men! The boys had a blast.

We all had a blast at the annual Ferguson Halloweenie. Landon was hard to keep up with this year as he ran from house to house to get as much candy as he could...next year I'm wearing my running shoes. :-) Leia got the hang of it all quickly and ate each piece of candy that was handed to her!
