Kingsville & Christmas Lights

Travis had to make a trip to Kingsville today to check on the Jatropha trees he's got planted there. Since it was going to be a short trip, Elizabeth & I went with him. They have had a couple of frosts already and a lot of the trees took it pretty bad!! We got home around 2 p.m. so we had a few hours before we had to leave for church. (Holy Day of Obligation) Travis worked and Elizabeth & I played and tried to catch a few winks, too. After church, Elizabeth fell asleep in the car almost right away so Travis drove around town in search of Christmas lights. We drove around for 30 minutes or so and saw some really pretty lit up houses. I think we'll have to go for another drive or two...I like looking at all of the lights!

Travis's dad called this evening and said that he was getting more transplants, so we'll be planting again tomorrow!

Oh, yeah...Elizabeth crawled today! She only took about 8 little steps, but it was crawling! But no matter how much I tried to get her to crawl again, she wouldn't. Then again, she hasn't sat up by herself for awhile now, either. Oh, well...maybe tomorrow!

Don't let your mom fool you...she only wants to see Elizabeth. She'll tolerate seeing you and Travis because that's the only way the baby will be there! (Just kidding, Kelli!) I can't believe she's big enough to crawl!

Kingsville.......isn't that near Halingen? We were in Harlingen this past weekend for soccer!

Elizabeth- Please grow more hair for Christmas so you can have a cute ponytail :) Soon she'll be walking I can't believe it!!!!!

It's about an hour and a half away from Harlingen. You have to drive through Kingsville to get there if you take Hwy 77. Did you drive through Victoria? We could have met up if y'all had time!

Elizabeth is slowly growing more hair...just not fast enough!! I do put her hair up in a clip from time to time...there's barely enough hair for that!
