Kyle's 37th

The other day, Kyle and I looked at each other and were like, what did we do last year for his birthday?  Thank goodness for the blog I said...but...there was nothing, no mention ha!  We racked our brains and could not for the life of us remember!  God, we are getting old.  I think that he was out of town for recruiting like he is for much of December.  Phew, off the hook!

This year was pretty much the same unfortunately.  We were in the midst of soccer tournaments, work and a sick little bitty.  But somehow we managed to squeeze in two dinners before he headed up to Austin for recruiting. 

The same day as the Tamale Festival which I had so many dreamy plans of eating my way through, we had a double header of soccer tournaments instead.   We decided to meet up with some friends afterwards at Tribeca di Olmos.  I had heard that they were changing up their menu so we wanted to go and enjoy their "old" food one more time.  Y'all, I'm not sure why they're making changes at all.  It's SO good, and kid friendly.  (You can read more about our first visit here.)

A couple days later, the old man and I went out to dinner, sans kids.  We went to Ruth's Chris and ate waaaay more than we should :-)

Thanksgiving 2014

"Give thanks
for each new morning 
with its light
for rest and shelter
of the night
for health and food
for love and friends
for everything
thy goodness sends."

Didn't even get a chance to grab a pig in a blanket bc the boys devoured them.  But I ate my new pregnancy body weight in that baked brie ;-)

Thanksgiving Program 2014

Ah yes, Thanksgiving time brings about somewhat cooler weather, lots of gratitude, lots of yummy food and the infamous Turkey Tango.  Coltrane really found his singing voice this year and has been practicing his music songs all throughout the day.  God Bless America, Albuquerque Turkey and the Turkey Tango to name a few :-)  We won't be tangoing again until the baby is three!  :-(

Ms. Pat is Coltrane's teacher and was Kingston's when he was in the 4 year old class :-)  Full circle!
We then went back to Kingston's school so that he could make the pumpkin pie in a bag.  (he had been talking about it all week and was so excited).

Baby #3 // 21 weeks

Last week we found out it's a girl and this week we are more than halfway there!  This week, my belly really popped, though it's huge and been huge for a while now, but it popped up!  So I was able to fit back into my normal jeans as opposed to maternity jeans.  Weird right?  I don't remember that happening with my other pregnancies.  I'm doing the hair elastic trick, so don't think that I'm fitting nicely into my old pants ;-)

Just Mango Slices from Trader Joe's.  I go through these like I went through sour patch kids in my first trimester.

Blood Orange Organic Italian Sodas by Central Market.

And last but certainly not least...The Bean and Cheese Chalupa and the Chilaquiles Breakfast Taco both from Taqueria Vallarta with the extra spicy green salsa (you have to specifically ask for it).  I've always loved both of these from there, but now I HAVE to have one when it pops in my head.  Sundays they serve breakfast tacos until 3 fyi ;-)
