Some Pictures...

from the past two weekends. This is Kindra and I at the OU/Texas Tech Game. We had a great time.
Shelton with the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving.

Cute little Kinzley....the bow is nearly bigger than her head:)

Kylan and I....this is her cheese face. She does everytime you tell her to smile for the camera...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I, unfortunately, was somewhat sick for mine. I enjoyed it, but just didn't feel good. However, I got to see my wonderful family, my friend Kindra, and get lots of rest. I drove in Saturday night so that I could have a day at home to get some stuff done. Last weekend, I drove in for the OU/Texas Tech game, then left again on Wednesday. So I've been on the road quite a bit. I leave again on Friday to drive to Texas for Bethany's baby shower:) I am so happy for her and Jeff, and can't wait to see them. I am just hoping I get over this bug I have. I went to Urgent Care today. They said I had a severe sinus infection/borderline pneumonia. YIKES!!! I asked about work, and the doc said as long as I don't have a fever, I'm clear. So, I guess I'm gonna give it a go tomorrow. We will see. I get observed on Wednesday, so this really isn't the week to be absent for any reason at all. However, I do have to take care of myself, so I'm just going to take it as it comes. I can't believe it's really the holidays...where has the time gone?

is everywhere...especially right now. I must say I am overwhelmed with my surroundings these days. In the mornings, I am driving, and the sun peeks through the trees, and the fog is rising off the lake. It is at times breathtaking. This weekend the weather has been unbelievable. We spent the day yesterday at Big Cedar. For some strange reason, I left my camera on the boat. I missed lots of moments, but I enjoyed them all the same. On the way back, the sky was unbelievable. The trees are so colorful, and I just can't say how pretty and wonderful this weekend has been.

On a different note, I spent much of the morning at school working. I tore off the October page on my desktop calendar, and I was suddenly struck with the fact that holidays are soooooo close! I went to mark Thanksgiving vacation, then I turned to December and marked Christmas vacation. I suddenly realized that IT is here. Even though everything in my life is not where I had hoped it would be at this point, I am looking forward to time with people I love. I just can't believe it's actually so close. Does anyone else feel that way?
