Texas Forever Cousins

While we were in Texas during Christmas, some of Greg's cousins asked if I could take pictures of them. Well.....I can't do it for everybody else and not do it for family so of course I said, Yes! We went to a small lake and it was cold (by my standards). The kids did such a great job dealing with the weather and taking direction though. Real troopers! Here are some of the pictures:

Love how Landon is peeking around on this one! He turned out to be my little star for the day, I couldn't take a bad picture of him if I were trying. Just TOOOO cute!

I love how kids have no inihibitions. I brought an empty frame and Camie just struck this pose, it was so cute and natural right off the cuff!

I rarely see a picture of a kid, besides my own that stirs up feelings like this one.

Fiesta Bowl 2010!

My friend Dawn works for Frito Lay in Texas and since she was in Arizona working the Fiesta Bowl event, she asked if I would like tickets to the game. Whaaat? FREE Tickets? Of course! We met up last Saturday and caught each other up on all the major events of the last ten years of our lives! It was so nice to just sit and chat, I only wish we had a little bit more time. (good sigh)

And then she gave us the HOOOOOOK UP! Not only did she send me home with 3 free tickets AND a parking pass (that alone was ahmazing!) but check out the goodies she sent home with me:

On Monday, we headed out to Glendale, it was our first time to see the new arena since it was built.
Photobucket

We had phenomenal seats...with more goodie bags!
Photobucket

LaDainian Tomlinson was there.
Photobucket

John Cena (Wrestler/Actor) was also there.

Michael McDonald sang the National Anthem but he was on the opposite end of the field so I couldn't get a good picture of him. His hair is completely white now, no gray at all. Striking resemblance to Kenny Rogers. hahaha!
Photobucket

During the anthem, they released this Eagle, which was really amazing but hard to capture in a picture.

We sat right under Pat Tillman's name in the Ring of Honor.

Here is TCU coming onto the field.

Boise's Bronco.

Nathan was enthralled. There was something to observe in every direction and it was LOUD.
Photobucket

I asked Greg to get a picture of the three of us.
Photobucket

Then Nathan took the camera from me. Here's a picture he took of me.

Here's a picture Nathan took of the guy in front of us.

Here's a picture of the guy next to Greg, with a hook'em sign.
Photobucket

Then Nathan asked me to take a picture of him which was so cute of him to ask and his smile totally captures the fun time he was having.
Photobucket

Hope you had fun on the cruise cause you missed a good time Dawn!
Again, thank you so much for everything, it was a blast!!!
