We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We have loved doing new recipes each year while we continue to grow as cooks. This year Justin grilled the turkey outside which was a learning experience for us in it self! Our propane tank ran out sometime during the cooking of it so needless to say turkey was done around 10pm so it was a late dinner. We had all the side dishes cooked and ready hours before that so we just waited on the turkey. But we managed to keep ourselves entertained with Mario Brothers on the Wii and broke out the old school Battleship board game. My mom drove up from Houston the day before to be with us. I love when we get to spend long weekends together- I absolutely cherish that time! For Black Friday we went out in the afternoon but I totally do not have the patience for all the madness so it was a short lived excursion. That night our downtown had the Christmas lighting ceremony. Santa and Mrs. Claus were there taking pics. There were carolers and carriage rides. We waited for awhile for the fireworks but they did not do the show while we were there. Usually we can see them from our front yard but for some reason we could not this time. We woke up early on Saturday headed to Dallas to meet friends for the Tech vs Baylor game at the new Dallas Cowboy Stadium. The stadium is huge and unbelievable! Luckily Tech pulled off a win but it was very close game! We got to see my friends from college and really enjoyed catching up with them! Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We send all of our love and hope everyone has a good week coming up after such a great weekend! xoxo~G and J
Happy 29th Birthday Justin!! Today is Justin's 29th birthday, we did most of our celebrating this past weekend. He shares a birthday with one of our close friend's son so they played XBox on Saturday. We all had a yummy dinner at their house and then went bowling. Justin got the new Super Mario brothers game for his birthday and we had an interesting time learning to play that game. Justin is very good at video games and I on the other hand am not! The girls at his work made him a yummy lunch today. We had pizza tonight and german chocolate cake. Happy Birthday Justin! I love you so much!!
Justin's best friend from dental school Andy sent him a Kobe Laker jersey. He is so excited and absolutely loves it! Wanted to post some pictures for Andy and tell him how much he rocks!! Thanks Andy you are the best!!!
Friday we headed to Guthrie for a CE course. Our office consultant did her first seminar. She did such an amazing job and is so inspirational! We went out to Daze in a Maze on Saturday. It was an absolutely beautiful weekend for November in Oklahoma! The family designs a maze through 7 acres of corn field luckily for the first one they give you a map to assist you but you are completely one your own on the second one. It was a hoot trying to figure out the second one- we could not help but feel like lab rats in a science experiment. They had a petting zoo out there and horses to ride. The kids dug up dinosaur bones and climbed on hay bail pyramids. We also went out to a local winery Indian Creek Vineyard. On Sunday they have live music so we sat out there with friends and had a lot of fun. They brought their kids out there and tossed the football and played volleyball. We wanted to grab lunch at a Bar-B-Q place right out of town on the way to the vineyard but they have very random hours and were not opened. Hopefully we'll get to eat out there a different time! Hopefully everyone had a great weekend and has a great week ahead!! all our love~G and J Amy leading us with the map!!
The doctor I have been seeing closed his practice and I had to find a new doctor for fertility treatment. I found a doctor that is known to be good with fertility issues. I met with the new doctor today and hopefully things will keep getting better. He wanted to do a few more tests so I got more blood drawn again today and we will see! The next step is testing fallopian tubes by a dye test so we will be setting that up for next month. This past weekend for Halloween the local theater had a scary play we went to watch on Friday. We grabbed dinner out before and watched the zombie parade on the scare on the square while we ate. On Saturday we stayed home and handed out candy to the trick-or-treaters- they were all so cute! We watched fun Halloween movies all day and of course couldn't miss the OU game! Hope everyone had so much fun celebrating Halloween. I love this time of year get so excited for all the holidays coming up! Hope everyone has a great week!! xoxo~G and J
Amazing how a Texas girl meets a California guy in Oklahoma of all places. We fell in love and got married. We are the proud parents of a baby girl and 3 crazy houndies. This blog is to share our life with friends and family near and afar since we are all spread out!
