We are under contract to buy a house! This is exciting and terrifying all at the same time! We aren’t telling people until it is final but we are excited! The House is small but the land is huge! We are planning on building a larger house in 6-10 years. In the mean time it will suite our needs. We are going to do it all on this land! We are going to plant a garden have chickens get meat chickens maybe turkeys and cows. and of course there is space for the horses and the kids and dogs. There is a pond, a deer blind, and feeder. neighbors say we get hogs (Alex is excited to shoot them). And of course plenty of space for Alex to shoot on!
Here we are at the end of another year. Time is ever marching forward ever getting away from me. Atticus is 2.5 now and Samrit is 1. They are very similar in personality and very different at the same time. There are things that Atticus does that Loi also copies. when Atticus doesnt want to do something he throws his arm down and grunts and Loi does the same thing. Loi loves cars just like his big brother. Basically Loi wants to be big just like his big brother!
This week Andrew and Sarah came and vistied from Washington. We got to have a nice little turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, gravy, and sweet potatoes. It was yummy! in the evening we went and saw the Christmas lights, Atticus was so excited he did not want to miss a minuet of Christmas! Then came Christmas When we first started opening christmas presents Atticus would open one and want to play with it but by the end he knew there where more presents and just wanted to open more and more presents. it was fun to watch him enjoy it!
After Breakfast we went to the Schilds for some riding and shooting. Atticus and I went on a little trail ride while the others where shooting.
Tuesday we had a early morning and headed for New Orleans. We had some amazing Oysters, and tried some fried gater. We walked around and looked at some architecture, and just enjoyed some time with family.
Because we were feeling so sick we came home first thing Wednesday and got to have a couple quiet days to ourselves.
Friday with Alex still feeling sick Atticus and I went out with andrew and sarah to China town. We went to the worst Thai restaurant I have ever been to (though I dont go to many). then we got some rolled Icecream that was Yummy! Then we hit up a Chinese Market where I found lots of Kao Soi packets (they are hard to find in the US) so I bought up a lot of them! I was super excited! I still haven’t found the perfect Asian store in Houston but between them all i might have all the bases covered. We also went to a World Market or something its a HIGH SO HEB they had some fun stuff!
Friday Night we got a babysitter and went to the drive in movie. We saw Coco and it was good.
Saturday for lunch we went to gringos they didnt have our favorite
Last Saturday was 6 years since Alex and I got married. To celebrate we took Atticus to the aquarium in draper. Atticus loved seeing all the fish and different thinks there. He loved standing next to the tank, watching the big fish swim by. There was one that he was afraid of so he would freak out when it came by, but I think he likes the adrenaline because he would kind of cry/laugh.
