Big Surprise!

In September, I started thinking about something that I could give Travis for graduation. I thought it would be fun to surprise him with an NFL game. I asked my brother what the best game would be and he said Giants vs. Cowboys, so...I've been sneaking money away since then to surprise Travis with a little trip. Last Saturday morning his parents called to see if they could take Travis somewhere for his graduation. Travis thought we were going to breakfast. Instead, we drove to the airport and flew into Dallas. We had so much fun! It was really hard leaving Lincoln, luckily he was in good hands! Thanks for working so hard Travis!

I was lucky enough to get a picture with a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader! It's a nasty picture of me, but luckily it's an even nastier picture of him :)!

It's been awhile...

So it's been awhile since I posted last and I thought it was time for a little update. First of all, I'm pretty sure that we skipped November because I don't remember any of it. Here is my list of things that I do remember from the last month or so...

*HALLOWEEN!! Lincoln is an elephant. If that doesn't make you melt, I don't know what will. Seriously.

*Here is a sad thing. We gave Bosco to another family. I didn't want to blog about this because it makes me teary. It was just getting to hard, and we couldn't give him the attention that he needs. So, my sweet neighbor found the best home for him. Really, he couldn't have gone to a better family. Thanks Jennifer! We miss you Bosco!

*We had a lovely Thanksgiving. It was at the Peterson household this year. Lot's of great food and memories. Gotta love those memories. Side note: Do not ask the Peterson boys what they are thankful for. It is inappropriate to write and slightly offensive! But seriously, I really do have SO much to be thankful for.

*I waited in line at RC Willey's by myself for 3 hours in the rain the day after Thanksgiving. It was death. Not to mention cold. However, the good news is that we got new couches and a bedroom set!

*Some little boy tried to beat up Lincoln in the mall. It's true. We were at the little play area and some little kid came up to Lincoln and grabbed his cheeks (they are chubby) and clawed him across the face. Poor little Lincoln had a scrape/cut across his cheek. I was furious. I didn't realize how protective I am. Do NOT mess with my BABY! That's all I have to say about it.

*Travis is on his LAST week of school!!! He really has worked so hard. I can't believe he is going to be done. He keeps saying that as soon as he graduates he is going to run around naked all day. I think he is joking, but just in case I will keep the blinds closed ;). Thanks for all of your hard work, I love you!

*I beat my sister in law in an arm wrestle. Yes Jenny, I am really blogging about this. It was my shining moment with Travis' family. I think they all think that I am shy and quiet. Boy do I have them fooled! So....if anyone would like to lose in an arm wrestle, feel free to give me a call! :)

Well, that's all I can remember tonight. I will let send out an update if I can think of anymore riveting moments in my life!
