sparkly pink shoes!
Tuesday, my brother John's sweet girlfriend Marissa and I went to the mall for a bit and today she offered to come play with Addy so I could go to the grocery store by myself! It was a nice break and the store is so hectic at this time of year so it was nice to not have to tote her along.
Addy and I went to lunch with Courtney and baby Bella today. Addy has a new thing where she hates being in her car seat and tries to propel herself out of it. In order to not disrupt the entire restaurant, Addy conned me into taking her out of her car seat for lunch. She proceeded to stand on me, pull my hair, knock the bread off my sandwich, and almost spill my drink more than once. It is a good thing she is so cute!
I am really looking forward to my first Christmas as a parent! I know they will just get better and better from here on out and I am excited about some of our new family traditions!

Nick and I had a fabulous trip to Vail over Thanksgiving but we both missed Addy desperately.

The girls and I went for a quick mile run after practice yesterday and were talking and laughing as we jogged along. It took me back to a time 7 years ago when I did the same thing with my friends and teammates after school. If given the chance I wouldn't go back to high school, but reliving some of my favorite moments with sweet girls who look at me the way I looked at my coach is a real treat.

Addy's first plane ride
Nick, Addy and I spent a fun filled weekend in Amarillo to see my cousin Houston get married to sweet Melanie. We flew in Friday in time for the rehearsal dinner. I got to spend time helping set up with William while Nick and Addy got settled in. The rehearsal dinner was so much fun. The favors were adorable- Rita got Mel and Houston's pictures on boxes of Sour Patch Kids candies because they both love them and got their engagement picture on a root beer bottle. They were wrapped up in cellophane bags and out on every table. It was such a unique and tasty idea!
Nick took Adalynn to the indoor pool for her first swim. He said she is "reserving judgement" about whether she liked it or not. I think the temperature was not what she was hoping for.
Saturday, Addy and I went to the bridal brunch and then we watched football with Nick all afternoon. Saturday night was the wedding. Addy was perfect (she slept through the whole thing). It was seriously one of the most beautiful and romantic weddings I have ever been to. The minster talked about things Mel and Houston had said that they love about each other and things each of their parents had said. Houston and Mel are so in love and so sweet together- they are fun to watch. I was too busy having a blast to take many pictures but I have a few.
We flew back today and have been doing tons of laundry and trying to get ready for the week. Our dear friend Trey lost his dad this weekend so we went to the viewing this afternoon. Please keep Trey and his mom in your prayers this week.
