This is what I found

On Sunday I had club volleyball tryouts during our regular church hours, so we were rushing to make it to the 9:00 ward. We were all ready to go, I just had to put my maskara on in the car. I was grabbing something and Trent was brushing his teeth. I came out to find this...

Grandma and Grandpa visit!

We had a visit from Mom and Dad last weekend. They came into town late Friday night and stayed til Tuesday afternoon. We had a good time, but the visit was too short. On Saturday I got a babysitter so we could go to the Sixth floor museum in Dallas. It was very interesting to learn of all the controversy surrounding the JFK assassination. We took some pics on the grassy knoll, Elm street and of the window that Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president from. We went home and relaxed for a bit, then headed back into Dallas for some authentic barbeque. When we walked into the Baker's Ribs, there was not one other person there. We were all a little worried, that is never a good sign for a restaurant, but the food was very good. We got brisket, chicken, ribs and pulled pork. I am pretty sure there was a strip joint next door, but it was good food!

On Sunday I made a pretty good breakfast if I do say so myself and then we got ready for church. I had to teach Sunday School so Mom kept Aiden and was wrestling with him for an hour until he fell asleep. We went home and fixed the home cooked meal that only Mom can fix. Mom made chicken rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy and I did vegetables and a salad. I will never cook like my mom, everything she makes is delicious. It was a feast. Sunday night we pulled my dad's arm and took away all his techno toys so he had to play games with us. We ate massive amounts of blue bell ice cream. Thanks to Dad we found that the pecan pralines and cream is heaven. I think we ate 3 half gallons of ice cream while they were here!

Monday was very chill. We had an adventure finding my dad's journal, which was eventually found at our church building. We spent the rest of the day shopping and hit one more bbque joint before they left on Tuesday. This one was terrible in my opinion. We didn't want to drive as far and went to a chain restaurant, it was a bad choice. While my parents were here my dad fixed our printer, the clock in our car and my external hard drive. I mean there is nothing he can't fix! He is a wizard! My parents are so wise.

Aiden loved having Grandpa(Bapi) and Grandma(Mommy) here. As you will see in the pictures he smothered them telling them where to sit, pulling them where he wanted them to go, and constantly trying to play with their iphones and D.S. It was so good to have them here. We miss our family a lot. I'm just excited that we get to see them soon for Christmas! Love you guys!

This year we went to our ward trunk or treat on Friday night and went trick or treating with some friends on Saturday night. Trent and I were going to dress up with Aiden and have some sort of theme, but then we realized we really didn't have anywhere to go and didn't want to spend the money. We ended up using costumes we already had. Trent was Peter Pan and I was a female version of Where's Waldo. Aiden loved trick or treating and bypassed his usual shyness if there was any chance of him getting candy. I had to bribe him with treats every time I put his costume on because he fought me tooth and nail, which was fitting because he was a lion.
