Bass Family Thanksgiving

Three generations of Bass men

A dream come true for Franklin, being at the place with his son.

Robbie's first overnight hunt in Texas!

All of the Basses, Vaughts and Browns went to Texas this year for Thanksgiving. We had a lot of fun family time, and even got to do some touristy things in Corpus Christi. Like the Aquarium, and dinner on the Bay. The men got to do some deer hunting too. David Franklin LOVED being with his big cousins and hung on their every word!

We had a picnic on Thanksgiving day in George West and then all went out to "The Place." Thanks Mommie Boo and everyone for such a fun time!

We have many, many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Many things, but the thing that comes most to mind is.....

We are having a baby in May!! This is the picture that David Franklin and I made to give to some family and friends to announce our news. I am 13 weeks along and feeling good, just tired, but I'm not complaining! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! As always I am most thankful for my family; the ones who are here now, the ones that have been here before, and the ones who have yet to come.

Thanksgiving Feast and Program

Today was the Thanksgiving Feast and little program at St. Luke's. Mommy, Daddy and Mammers all feasted on a delicious meal, I'm officially ready for Thanksgiving now! The announcement said "Toddler Entertainment" which was pretty vague and a little scary to me. They all lined up on the stage in their Indian shirts and sang a very short couple of turkey songs. I didn't know what to expect with David Franklin, I didn't know if he would jump off the stage and come to us, or cry, or what. I really wasn't expecting him to be the total ham that he was. He stood front and center and smiled, waved, clapped, and flapped his turkey wings and danced to the music. He loved it! It was so cute and I was so proud of him!

I have known for a while now that my child is a big talker, but it's gotten more and more and funnier and funnier. He is plain chatty. He talks constantly and will say the same thing over and over again until you acknowledge that you have heard him. Like anyone, he needs confirmation. Anything he thinks, sees or feels, he reports to all.

Here are some new funnies:

Last week in the middle of the floor playing with toys, "Nice to meet you, Mommy."

Watching Little Einstein's and they started shaking their hands. He started shaking his hands with them and said, "What am I doing?"

This morning when he woke up (bright and early...daylight savings hasn't occurred yet at this house), DF: Something in my eye. Me: What is it? DF: A bug. Guess it's time to call the Bug Man.

Today at lunch, Me: What would you like for lunch today? DF: "A bootiful sandwich." It's nice that my culinary abilities are so appreciated. PB & J it was :)

Happy Halloween

School parade

With Ms. Gaddis, David Franklin's teacher!

The neighborhood kiddos before we went trick or treating.

Here are some pics from David Franklin's school parade, and trick or treating last night. The wagon was key, it made the whole experience so much fun and easy!

We had a costume party on Friday night, we were Nerds...imagine.

Oh, and as for our pumpkin carving from last week, they were black and hairy by Halloween. Amateurs!
