Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving sure came quickly this year! The day itself was lovely with perfect weather. It was made better by family and good food.

Dig in!

We found the girls squeezed behind our arm chair playing with the lamp's timer... kids find the strangest things amusing.

The Great Outdoors

The McClure family spent the weekend outdoors at Inks Lake State Park with some very dear friends. Everyone had a great time and the weather was absolutely perfect. The only hiccup was the fact that there were about five troops of boy scouts that used the adjacent camp site as their headquarters. Argh! All in all , though, I think everyone enjoyed themselves and I hope that we can get together again in the spring before the Texas summer heats things up too much.

Quinn gets settled in.

Wesley enjoys the outdoors in her pack n' play

Dinner is served - hot dogs fresh from the campfire.

Happy Birthday, Pollock!

Today is Pollock's 7th birthday! Hard to believe we've had him that long already. He's now a "senior".

Pollock looking up at the cupcakes. Ready for his treat!

Pollock and Boone waiting as patiently as Labradors can wait for a bite to eat.

Quinn and Wesley singing "Happy Birthday". Quinn insisted on candles so she could help Pollock blow them out.

Hook 'Em!

Quinn attended her first Longhorn football game this past Saturday. She had to have a lesson before the game on her proper hand formation.

She tries it on her own.

Quinn gets a little help from her daddy.

There it is!

Ok, almost...

Off to the game!
