Thanksgiving Break Part 1

It's the Saturday night after Thanksgiving, and I'm sad that my 10 day break from work is coming to an end. I'm going to reminisce for a minute while I'm watching tv in the playroom and Matt is in the other living room snoring after the harsh Bulldog loss today. 

My time off started last Friday, and Matt took that day off as well so we took the boys to Collin's most requested place... Chucky Cheese. We went to the one in Gulfport which ended up being way nicer than Mobile.
 We stopped by Amanda's on our way to Gulfport for Jack's first big boy haircut. He now looks so much like Collin it's crazy. Of course, it made him look older. His hair had gotten so long it was most definitely time.  

The next morning Matt, Jim, Christie and I headed to Starkville for our last Mississippi State home game of the season. It's always hard to believe how fast the season passes each year especially this phenomenal one! 
For the first time in a very long time we went somewhere after a game other than to bed! We went to the Dawghouse downtown since Matt and I were staying at Hotel Chester anyhow. We enjoyed ourselves. We laughed at how obviously older we are... We still have fun though. 

We came home Sunday and rested and played with the boys. It's crazy how much we miss them even for the night. They had a good time at Granny and Pop's especially on the by-side-by-side (as Collin calls it). 

The four of them took it up to Aunt Cindy and Uncle Greg's to ride it. 

Looks like they had fun and Jack got a little hungry! 

Jack's words

So Jack has been talking for a while now, but I know later I would love to be able to look back at how much he was saying at this age. 

He can say:
O' tootles
Pooky pooky (in the most adorable voice since he's copying me and saying is silly) He let me know tonight that he doesn't like me calling him that by looking up at me and grunting every time I said it. 

I know there are a few more but they aren't coming to mind.

Collin's 1st sleepover

Since Collin is such a big boy these days, we all went Friday (me and Matt were off) and bought him a full size set of mattresses. 

His "BIG BOY" bed! 

Jack was even a little excited for his brother!

The week before we got the new bed he had woke up in the middle of the night every night and to get in our bed around 1-2 am. This just wasn't kicking it for me and Matt. Our bed is already uncomfortable enough and then adding Collin the wildest, kick-en-est sleeper ever pretty much sums up to no sleep for anyone but Collin. 

In fact one night when Collin showed up in the middle of the night, Matt ended up on the couch in the living room, I ended up on the couch in the play room all the while Collin is snoozing in our big king size bed all by himself. Anyway... Since sleeping in his new bed, he has not showed up on our bedroom once!

Collin and Sophie had been begging to have a sleep over so we finally made that happen since we had room now! 

The night was a complete success and I'll be have to have SoSo over anytime! 

We played outside for a few minutes, ate supper, then they "swam"- bathed in my tub! 

Then they went straight to Collins room and played on the iPad for a few minutes and then said they were ready for bed. I was surprised. It was only 8:30. Well come about 1030 they were still in there talking and giggling! I had to tell them it was night time and time to go to sleep! 

We had a busy day the next day! We are all going to see Planes!
