First family trip to CS!

I can't believe half of November has gone by! We have had a busy week! Thursday we attended Luxury in Lights which is the lighting of the tree in Market Street. There were tons of people out listening to the live band and activities for the kids. Each year they select a family in need to do the honors of lighting it so it makes it special. The tree lights were in sync with different holiday music so it was fun to watch it light up.

Saturday we took advantage of the weather and drove up to College Station to have a little pre-game fun. The Aggies were playing Sam Houston (and won-WHOOP!). This was our first road trip with Peyton and it worked out very well. We timed it around her nap time so she slept the entire drive up there! Once we got there we hit up some tent sales to stock up on Aggie gear. Peyton loved watching everyone and was very smiley. After getting our Aggie gear, we headed to campus to enjoy all the activities, take a trip down memory lane and our yearly picture in front of the big ring. This was the first time back since I was pregnant with her.

Of course the campus was packed (since A&M is on fire right now in the SEC) and not really stroller friendly, thank goodness I remembered the back-ways to get around so we avoided a lot of congestion. I definitely think Peyton is an Aggie because she was smiling the entire time we were there (I mean look at the smile on her face in front of the ring by far the BIGGEST smile) and did soo well! Not to mention maroon & white look great on her ;)
Afterwards we headed to Blue Baker for some brick oven pizza--just like our old college days!

And After!

so happy! 
Sporting the bow I made her!

Blue Baker--yum!

We attended a new church today, First Baptist. We are looking around at new churches since we feel that Fellowship of the Woodlands has gotten too big. We enjoyed the service and this was Peyton's first time attending; she did very well! We sat next to the door in case she started to cry but she was quiet the entire time (except for some slurping noises due to the pacifier) and she just loved looking at all the canned goods for their food drive! We will see in the coming weeks if we think this will be our church home.
