We just finished up Colton's second Tball season with the Astros.  It was a long season, never knowing when or where practices would be and having games change from day to day but Colton and the Astros played hard. 
These first pictures were taken by one of the boys Uncles.  He really got some great shots!

Round one of Playoffs.
We were ranked 6th overall and
we played the number 3 team, a select team, Triton. 
The boys played hard and we crushed them

 Round two of playoffs.
We played the number one team, Cypress Crush. 
The boys played so incredibly hard but lost 21-20.

We all enjoyed the games.  We love watching Colt play, although he's not always into the games.  He told me mid-season that he wanted to play next year but only practice, not play games.  Then the night of his last game we were talking to him about playing and he told us he was going to "take a season off." 
Who knows if we will be back next season.  I asked him if he wanted to try something different like basketball or soccer and he said
 "No mom, I'm a baseball player!"

Thanksgiving break

We had such a nice Thanksgiving break. 
 It went way too fast!

 We decorated (before Thanksgiving).

We celebrated my birthday (for a few days ;)

 Had a movie night or two. 
 Celebrated Thanksgiving morning at Gaga and PawPaws.

 And, moved over to Mimi and Jerrys for the rest of the day.

 Snowman came home!
 And, we finished up the decorations outside. 

We stayed busy but we got in a lot of relaxing.  
I am feeling very THANKFUL for all I have.
