Jingle all the way...

We had such a wonderful time going Christmas caroling with friends this holiday season.. I think it got all of us in the wonderful spirit of Christmas and stopping by some houses to put smiles on the peoples faces got those in the Christmas spirit also. We got to see some houses all nicely decorated. It is amazing all the hard work that goes into decorating the homes, but it is so worth it when you see the smile from the children. Our neighborhood does an annual decorating contest in each neighborhood inside our big neighborhood. Last year we got 1st in the Forest (our area), and this year we got honorable mention. We were so excited to be recognized this year again

Halloween fun at preschool..

Just a little sneak peak of our little pirate Carter before Halloween. He had a school dress up party and all the little ones were so precious! The picture above is with his two catty teachers, Ms. Suzie and Ms. Wendy. We love them both. Today after the party I grabbed Carter early from school so he could nap at home. When he got in the car he said "Mommy guess what Ms. Wendy taught me, Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat" So cute.. He is ready to go knock on those doors on Saturday!!! I can't wait to take some pictures, because as you can see how cute Pirate Carter is wait till you see his big brother Drake Vader!!!

We have been so busy with friends and family that is why I took a long needed break from the blogging world. BUT WE ARE BACK!! I can't wait to share our new comings with you all.

We love July in Port Oconner Texas, because that is the time of the big POCO BUENO fishing Tournament. Jess, his brothers, and few of there closest friends have been fishing this tournament the last few years on our boat, Hydrocarbon. Not only is this tournament a time of excitement for all of us, it is a laid back fun with friends and family.

We always start the week long excitement with a family cruise on our boat.

The Girls and our babies..
Sara, Erin, and I heading to dinner at the POCO tent.
Mommy and my sweet boys.

Everyone in the tournament can leave on Thursday night at 11. So after baths, we loaded up the kids so they can watch their daddy and his team leave. Carter had a hard time with this and kept screaming, "daddy come back." Drake on the other hand just wanted daddy to win the big one.

Friday we spent that day at one of the new developments in Port Oconner swimming and enjoying the sun. This place is really neat, it felt like we were at our own little paradise. First there was no one there, which was awesome. And second they have a HUGE pool, splash pad, and a little playground area fenced in around the water. We all had a blast.

When we got back Friday afternoon we had a little time for fishing before it got dark. There wasn't much caught except for Cbug. He caught his first ever fish with the help of mommy. When the fish grabbed his pole, he got scared and about lost his pole. Mommy came to the rescue and we got to reel in his fish. He was so excited.
Friday night ended in Dance Party USA!! Katelyn showed us her awesome moves, while Landon and Carter ran around and dance with her. Drake was Katelyn's official Paparazzi. He couldn't get enough pictures.

Saturday was the day my parents, dede and Skipper, were headed to meet me to take the boys home. But before we had to get new pets for Katelyn and Drake. At one of the local shops in Port Oconner they had Hermit Crabs that were painted and a cage for them. Drake grabbed a pirate hermit crab and named him Gary Dale.
We met my parents in Port Lavaca so they could finish the weekend with my parents and I could partake in some adult time. I hate to see them leave, but they always have so much fun.
Here are the women to go see our fishermen. Reese, Erin, Sara, and I.
Here they come.

The crew. Jake, Chance, Jon, Ramsey, Jake, Joel, Jess, and in the front Jeff. They had a great time and ended up catching, 2 wahoo, 2 white marlin's, and 2 sailfish.
