Not knowing...

Well, we know we are moving again in early January. We do not have an assignment as of today, so please keep your fingers crossed and say some prayers. One of the most frustrating things about traveling is going into the holidays knowing we do not have an assignment after the first of the year. It can make it hard to justify certain things...

Anyway, last weekend we headed to Dallas to babysit little C so his parents could go to a work function. He was such a good boy. We had seen him a few times however, had not been able to work out a weekend trip. At one point on Friday evening Daniel said "this is why I don't want more than one!" I laughed because all I said was "Daniel, you check on Wyatt and I will check on C so we can make sure they are both asleep." We had just put them down and just wanted to make sure.  LOL! Daniel you crack me up! It could not have been easier! We even had pizza delivered to really make things easy.

 We have the same wagon and Wyatt loved having one to play with inside. We were all sitting in the other room and heard him talking. R walked around corner and he had climbed into it. He did this several times, we all thought it was so funny, and were pretty impressed. We never caught him in the actual act, but he was quick and careful! He even got a few wagon rides through the house! Silly boy!

Trying to catch him in the act...

 Playtime with C. He is so cute and is getting strong. He is such a good baby and makes this whole infant thing look easy. I told them before they know it, he will be all over the place!

 We ventured out for Pluckers. It has been a group favorite since we met almost 7 years ago! Two babies in tow makes for a fun time getting a table!
Love them!

Rebecca and I were able to get out on Sunday afternoon for a few hours to do a little shopping. Wyatt napped and C was in and out while the daddy's had baby duty. They always get the easy tasks! :)
 Sunday we also went for a walk around the neighborhood and over to the live nativity at the church before heading back home. They live in such a friendly neighborhood and it was nice to be doing the types of "community feel/neighborhood" things we often miss out on. We enjoyed walking around and Wyatt loved outside time!

 We had such a nice visit spending time with our friends. I can't believe we both have babies. It seems just like yesterday we were running at Town Lake during lunch. We hope we can visit again soon.  We always enjoy our time with them as we are able to relax, recharge, and have some fun friend time! Lots of laughs! So excited for your family and love that little guy! I know we have lots of fun times with the boys ahead. You are great parents and little C is incredibly lucky!

This week I have been busy gearing up for the holidays. Yesterday we had a marathon day of shopping and I am almost done. Woop!  Can't wait for the excitement of all the little ones and to spend time with family in the coming week! More blogs to come!

Another Woo Pig Attempt

Calling the Ikea. We were shopping while in Austin a few weeks ago and he started the Woo part all on his own. It was obvious to me he was trying. We tried to help, so I apologize for our Wooo Pigs..LOL! I think many people have this problem. Oh well. I know the gparents will love it regardless.

Christmas Decorations 5th Wheel Style

Yep this is decorating in a 5th Wheel. Don't be jealous! It look 10 minutes. I am kinda embarrassed to show this, because it really is just a mismatch of small random things that won't get broken however, I do want to remember it. My sweet mom has had her students have make us ornaments for the past 5 years and they decorate our tree. They send us sweet pictures and holiday creations all the time. It does makes us feel loved!

I know that when we are done with this adventure I will always have at least one tree filled with these ornaments. We also buy an ornament or something we can hang on a tree as a memento of each location we have lived/ that tree will be eclectic! I also bet that once we have a house, I will go crazy because this really is all I can do with our space! It is lovely isn't it! HA!

Drum Roll........

I know it is amazing. The holiday season has arrived at Basham Travel!

Ok now I want to see your decorations! Thanks for visiting from the Christmas Tour of Homes!

Here for now...

Just like everyone else we have been going non-stop. We are still here however, honestly I am not sure how much longer. That has made for a stressful time leading up the holidays. One day we might move, the next day we are staying put for another few days...

Anyway, that said blogging has been on my mind just not on my schedule or little man's :)

We were in Austin this past weekend and H and R were in a Christmas parade. Since Shelby was driving one of the floats for the baseball team Daniel and Wyatt both ended up being in it as well. Terri and I were on the float then opted to get off. (That was a good decision as the parade was long!) Anyway, Wyatt loved it and Daniel said he took it all in. I am glad we were on the side lines to watch and capture memories!

 A few from the parade

It was a great parade and a fun family memory. I know we have many more Christmas parades in our future!

Thank you S Family for letting us stay with you! We had a blast..other than the unfortunate migraine I had on Sunday. You will never know how much I appreciated that you helped take care of Wyatt while I was down. A million thank yous!!!

I stayed in town  a few more days for doctors appointments, essential errands (car inspection, etc) and was able to get some Christmas shopping done. Melissa (Daniel's) sister and family had us over for dinner and Wyatt had a great time playing with the boys. Funny side note..Wyatt has started randomly calling the Hogs. Even in Ikea the kid was raising his arms. People took note and it was really funny!  I will have to upload the video in another post.  Mary I enjoyed spending time with you and I know it was good for both of us to have some "girl" time. :)

Wyatt obviously enjoyed the space...Dapper Dude

 I hope to have a few more blog posts up before we leave again this weekend..but we all know how that could go! :)

For now I hope each of you are enjoying: cooler weather, the reason for the season, some fun family time, and are making memories! This time of the year really  really makes us miss our know we are sending lots and lots of hugs!
