let me fill you in
with all of the holiday todo we never mentioned andrew's t-ball experience. what a joy it was to see him grow to love this sport. he was the one that wanted to do it. but we did have to push him a bit when the time came. he was amazing. followed all of the coach's instructions. he learned the correct stance, throwing and catching techniques. and he can be baseball ready at any time. towards the end of the season they were pitching to the kids and he was hitting and taking bases. the best part was when he ran to home and then would just stand on the base and look at us, even when other runners were coming behind him. at the last game he got a medal (he was a little disappointed because he came into this thinking he was getting a trophy) but he was proud none the less. we are signing him up to play in the spring which begins in march, i think. looking forward to that.
had a great thanksgiving with my family. lots of good food and plenty of laughs. we made lists of things we are thankful for. here's a glance;
- Dora the explorer
- baseball and swimming
- that happy feeling in the morning when we hear little voices outside our bedroom door
- the cleaning lady
- and cows (yep andrew had to throw that in for fun)
then we had another great thanksgiving celebration with the brockett clan. aaron, cherry, kate and the kids were in town and we got a chance to hang out and let the little cousins get to know each other. more turkey, cranberries and stuffing for all. it was fun watching the little boys (and big boys) play baseaball and run around. we are looking forward to visiting them when we go to colorado next year for the wedding.
yes, today we are cleaning out the garage and decorating for christmas. it feels weird to be doing it so early but exciting because we get to enjoy it longer. i'm working on some holiday crafts and of course our christmas card.
hoping everyone gets home safe and sound.
