Thanksgiving Break

We were fortunate enough to have Jakob home for thanksgiving. I could tell everyone deeply missed him~
This girly was one happy camper to have her brother home for a few days
They always crack me up
I am so thankful to have time together with everyone. I love laughter in our home.
Lots of yummy dinners
We even spent some nights with friends. 

Visiting Jakob at SMU October Homecoming

I was very fortunate to attend all of Jakob's pre college experiences. My husband had to work and was unable to tag along. Even orientation and move in was not possible. Homecoming at SMU is in October and instead of going out during that busy weekend we went the weekend after for my pre birthday celebration.
I was so excited to see him. Its amazing how much they change once they move out on their own.
We made a stop at In and Out. I loved this restaurant in California so its so nice that Dallas has them, and its pretty inexpensive considering.
We stayed the whole weekend so he got to sleep in a real bed and enjoy a break from the campus. 
We gave dad a tour of the campus and snapped a quick photo there
I love their change up of landscaping. I wonder what they do with all the pepper plants when they are finished with them.
We enjoyed a night out at Outback, not normally in our price range but it was a nice treat.
Jakob collects soda bottles, he happened to find a few during our weekend venture. He was one happy camper. It was a great birthday treat. One I hope we can continue.

Homecoming 2014

This year Mekenzei decided to go to homecoming alone. I am thankful for good friends. She enjoyed taking photos for her Historian Role and also just having a night of entertainment. Zekaryah decided to not attend since the lights seem to bother him more with whatever health issues are going on.
This is the first year she actually didn't get ready at home. In fact I didn't even see her until after the dance. I am thankful for photographs. She enjoyed getting ready with this set of friends from school.
