This is my favorite picture of Samantha. I love this face.

Melissa takes pictures

My Aunt Melissa was here with my Uncle Mark and the kids for Thanksgiving and she took some pictures of us. I'm happy to have some good pictures of Samantha, but sad because I wish Sam was here to be in them with us. Only two more weeks till we get to see him!
Thanks, Melissa for all the pictures :)

Thanksgiving Table Fun

Samantha decided that she really wanted to run around the table, so we let her of course.

I haven't been updating this thing much because I have just been so busy. I only have a few projects left in school and then I'm done. Well, done for the semester. I still have one more then I'm done. YAY!!!

Samantha finally got into the daycare here on post. I really don't need it until January, but the spot opened so I have to start in December. I'm going to take her a little chunks of time so she can get used to her new class and to give me some extra time during finals week to finish up some school stuff. Believe it or not, I am a lot more productive when I don't have to chase after Samantha.

Just hanging out

I like this picture, she looks like those cartoon dogs with the big heads. Yes, that's a banana on the floor. She loves them.

We had a Dragon Fiesta at the school I'm interning at. It's a way for the different departments and programs to raise money. It was pretty fun and Samantha got her face painted. Here she is sitting in the clinique make up chair afterwards. We went to the mall to pick up some stuff after the school thing and everyone was laughing because she kept looking at her face paint in the mirror.

While Sam was here we went to visit his grandma (Samantha's great grandma).

Fun Stuff while Dada was here

Sam had no idea I was taking this picture.

There is a deer in the background...sorry, I'm not a good picture taker. We had so much fun Samantha here. We took her to a mini-petting zoo place behind a dairy in Socorro, TX. She LOVED it. They had a mama donkey walking around with her baby donkey and the baby would follow us around. It was so cute. I thought I took a pic with Samantha and the baby donkey, but I guess it didn't save. Well here are a few more...

Here's a better one of the deer.

These were goats.

She was so upset when we left. She fed the ponies candy. Oh, and they also had a camel, an ostrich, and a couple of cows.
Samantha loves cows sooooo much. It was so sad when we left because she was crying so hard and she said, "mooo" in the middle of the crying.
I'll probably be taking her back soon.

San Angelo and some randomness

This picture is first because it's hilarious. Samantha always insists on riding in this stroller that's way too small for her. And check out her shoes. My neighbor gave them to her and Samantha brings them to me all of the time to put them on her. They're old school reeboks and she looks very 80s in this complete outfit.

Samantha, my mom, my dad, and I drove down to San Angelo, TX (about 7 hours east of El Paso) a few weeks ago. I'm slow and I barely got around to posting some pictures. There wasn't much to see there, just a neat river walk. It was just nice to get out of El Paso for a little while.

Samantha loves slides as much as Sam.

Samantha and I look hideous in this picture, but any chance I can get with all of us together is going to get posted.

Here they are on a tire swing at a state park in san angelo. There was nothing there but an almost dried-up lake and a playground.

This is my favorite picture. I may have already posted it, but oh well.
