This Thanksgiving, we stayed in Tampa and had a delicious lunch at our neighbor's house. I thought I might cry because we weren't with Ty's family as we have been for the last 6 years, but I didn't. Whew! Thanks Jen for having us over! We had a great time. We stayed in Tampa because Ty was on-call for work - and good thing we stayed because he got SO many calls and had to run up to the office a ton. I was asked to make sweet potato casserole for dinner. I've never made that particular dish before, so I snagged a recipe at and it was delicious! Here's the link if you want the recipe for yourself:

Also, we went to a Christmas tree lighting with some friends from church. Colt wore his UT outfit, despite the fact that the Longhorns lost. He got several comments about his cute outfit complete with the socks (thanks, Beth!).

Also, I got my hair cut. Above is the "after" picture, and below is the "before" picture.
I bought a Christmas tree for Colt's room since Grandma J bought him these CUTE ornaments at Disney world. However, after the tree was decorated, I was about to cut off the tags and saw that the tree had the following written on the tag: "Handling of the plastic in this product exposes you to lead, a chemical known to the state of California to cause birth defects and other reproductive harm. Wash hands after use." So, since I figure that Colt will be decorating the tree from here on out, I am going to return the tree as I don't want him to be touching all that lead if I can help it. Also, our main Christmas tree also had this warning on the box, but it was already assembled and decorated by the time I figured it out. But, I'm pretty sure we'll be getting rid of it after this holiday season. Just a note on the warning: how come ONLY California is aware that lead causes birth defects and reproductive harm?!
Here are some videos that hopefully have uploaded correctly. The first is of Colt "talking" and the 2nd is his first experience watching some bubbles. Have a great week!
