A Texas Thanksgiving

Mommy (and daddy for that matter) were not very good with the camera over the Thanksgiving holiday, but here are a few photos we did capture.

Mom & dad won tickets to a suite at the Cowboys' game vs. the Browns.  
The Boys won that game but only by the hair of their chinny-chin-chin.  

Grandpa and Reid were watching from home, and you can see how interested they were in the game.

 Fun on the slide in the mall play area in Corpus (notice the shorts)
 Our best attempt at getting a photo of the three cousins (notice the impatient kiddos behind them!)

Dallas Zoo

Grandma & Grandpa Whetstone made a spur-of-the-moment trip to Dallas to attend a funeral on Friday. In an effort to make the most out of a sad situation, they decided to stay a couple of extra days to hang out with you-know-who!  :)

As it turned out we had beautiful weather today and it made for the perfect day for Reid's 1st trip to the Dallas Zoo.  As you will see from the far-too-many photos I've posted, he had a blast!

Singing "If you're happy & you know it" on the way to the zoo
 Measuring up (32")
 Checking out the elephants with dad

 Feeding the giraffes was the highlight of our day
He was a little timid at first...
 ...but he warmed up to them quickly.
 And they warmed up to him as well!

 Only a video would have done this moment justice, but since I was in photo mode only, I'll just have to tell you - I took the below photo a split second after our friendly giraffe LICKED Jeff's underarm!
You can see Reid's reaction right after Jeff let out a very manly yell.

 What a fun surprise!  We ran into Reid's friend, Larkin!
 Hello, kitty.

 Koi have BIG mouths!
 Feeding the goats

 Taking a few minutes to chit chat
 Getting ready for the Grand Finale!

Happy Halloween!

This was our first Halloween in our "new" hood, so I was a little unsure how much candy to buy for the trick-or-treaters.  Despite the word from a few neighbors that we don't get much traffic on this evening, I went ahead and bought as much as I always do...a TON!  

I'm so glad I did!  After an early trick-or-treat venture with our little spider, we headed back home to get ready for our little (and not-so-little) Halloween visitors.  I'm happy to report that we had a fabulous turn out all the way up until 9:15 pm (when we decided it was time to turn out the lights).  

Here we go!

 One of our very friendly neighbor's dogs (Stan & Alice brought us a delish PIE when we first moved in!).  

Reid loves their pup, Lucy!  Lucy's feelings toward Reid....uhhhh, let's just say they don't share the same sentiments (with or without the scary spider costume).  :)
