You might think that Jenn and I travel everywhere with a camera all the time- you would be wrong. Sadly we forgot our camera at Thanksgiving so there are no pictures of Thomas eating turkey at this time. However there were several family members with cameras and I am currently begging them to forward me some pictures so I can share them with all our blog readers.
Here are those pictures of Thanksgiving that I promised, hopefully I can get a few more, but until then, enjoy!
Please enjoy this video of Thomas and Mommy reading. I was in the other room while they read and I heard a lot of laughter which made me grab the video camera and capture some memories. You will see that once Thomas sees the camera he becomes disinterested in the book and more interested in crawling away or looking at the camera? It's still a cute video and you get a chance to see how much fun Thomas and Mommy have together.

These are the pictures from the trip. Also HERE are more pictures from Auntie Laura's camera.
This video is Thomas and Teta playing with a new toy.
This second video is Thomas and Teta again, but this time Thomas is cracking up!
The entire trip was very relaxing and everyone had a terrific time. Thomas was crawling and playing all over Grampa and Teta's house, and Auntie Laura flew down for a couple days to play with us as well. Saturday night we had an early Thanksgiving (sorry no pictures), and got to see a lot of friends. Thomas is already screaming about going back in a month for Christmas, so maybe next time he'll be walking all over Grampa and Teta's house?

Thomas enjoyed the racing game at the video arcade. Leia thinks he'll love video games as much as his Daddy (we shall see).
If one driver is good, then two drivers must be great. The kids really loved that steering wheel!

A little while later Thomas was hungry for some milk and every good racer knows that you have to refuel. After the milk and bottle Thomas had a little crash, and here are pictures from the crash.

This is a photo of Grampa Thomas Aguilar taken when he was 6 months old.
This photo is Grampa David when he was about 12 months old.
I will say that I see some resemblances between the 3 boys- mainly that they are all handsome and good look'n. Maybe next time I will post a photo of myself when I was Thomas' age... we shall see.

Here are all the pictures we took during Thomas' first Halloween.
We had a large group that we traveled with, and so if you know who everyone is- good, if not- no big deal. We had a really fun night and it was certainly perfect trick or treating weather which is always an important factor.

Other things happening in Arizona is that Jenn had her 10 year high school reunion (I can't believe she's that old... and still looks so smoke'n hot!); the reunion brought Jenn and her two friends to memory lane. If you would like to see pictures of Jenn, Anessa and Nica during the special evening then I suggest you check them out on Facebook. Jenn puts a lot of pictures on Facebook and I post mainly to Blog; so depending on how interested you are in our family you can check out one, or both.

Currently I am writing this blog post on Saturday afternoon, so technically Saturday night and Sunday could still be a nightmare, but I'm confident it won't be. Saturday has been a relaxing day where Jenn and I have been able to catch-up on several errands and things. I was able to sit around for a couple hours and work on some homework and write a couple papers.
I realize of course that most of you blog readers don't read this blog because you want to hear about what Jenn and I do with our errand weekends, but rather to check out pictures and videos of Thomas. You're in for a treat, because Jenn gave Thomas this little cookie biscuit teething thing, and so the video below is showing Thomas eating his cookie.
On a more personal note to this cookie video, I was the person that got to wipe the face and clean the high chair- lucky me.

For those to want to know more about the area we were camping, check out Woods Canyon Lake. Along for the camping trip we had our friends Anessa and Dan as well as Chris and Sandra. As you may notice it looked pretty chilly and felt even colder, at night the temperature went down to the 40s.
Here are a couple other pictures from last week when Thomas got a fun visit from his Auntie Kelsey.
Hope things are going well with all you wonderful blog readers. I also apologize for my limited writing in this post, but I'm just very tired, and going to bed sounds pretty good right now, so enjoy the pictures and there will be many more to come!

Here we can see Uncle Jack sitting at some kind of high table with Thomas and Mommy. Some other people in the restaurant yelled things like, "Why's yo baby in a bar?" I had to gently remind them that we were in a restaurant style establishment.
Here we see everyone smiling because after drinking from those tiny little glasses 2 or 3 times everyone becomes more silly.
After telling Uncle Jack goodbye, we stopped over at Tia Leia and Uncle Steve's house (Uncle Steve can't fly a jet, but he is the best napper around). Tia Leia was packing for a big trip to the East Coast where she would spend time with Auntie Laura, so Thomas grabbed a box and jumped in. The idea was that Tia Leia could just take Thomas with her to go see Auntie Laura!
All in all our weekend was really great. All these pictures are only from Friday night, and this video below is from Thomas on Sunday morning.

Lets begin with the good times, because you're probably reading this blog on Monday morning, and so you're already a little depressed, so lets get happy first, and then I'll leave you the same way I found you- just kidding!
Friday was nice because Jenn and I both got out of work around the same time 3pm and so we picked up Thomas from day care and we all spent the evening doing a little shopping and watching some television and just enjoying the beginning of the weekend.
Saturday again was nice- ignoring the fact that Thomas was awake at 6am and ready to wake up for the day. We again did a little running around- errands and such. I was able to work on some homework (couple more months until I graduate, again), and Jenn was able to catch a movie, while Thomas was playing and happy- most of the time. Saturday evening was really terrific because our friend Anessa had a themed birthday party; the theme being 80's. Jenn and I both had sweet costumes and Thomas enjoyed mingling with all the people, and all the great music. Here's the part that might make you not love me as a blogger anymore, I forgot our camera and so not a lot of pictures yet of the fun 80's party. Here is one group photo which Jenn and Thomas (far right) heard and posed for, while I was in some other room doing the electric slide or something?
Over all the party was super fun, and like I said I'll try and get more photos that show me and Tia Leia and Gramma Katie and a bunch of other blog celebs.
Special shout-out to Gramma Katie who took Thomas to her house around 9 so that Jenn and I could keep partying until we'd had enough. Turns out we got home and in bed around... 2am. Crazy right, it's like a wild Saturday night or something.
Sunday we did wake up and attend church with Gramma, and then we all tried to recuperate from the night before. All three of us took small naps through out the day and watched a little football on TV. Here is a video that Jenn took of Thomas that some might find amusing.
As you might be thinking right now, "This weekend sounds fun, what's with the complaints Don?" I will now tell you why this weekend was a little rougher and tougher than previous weekends. Our darling son Thomas has learned to whine. It isn't a 24/7 thing, but it's a every 15 minutes thing that can kind of make you want to say, "Want some cheese with that wine?"
I have a theory that Thomas is just growing into the world more and more and so every day he is becoming a baby less and less. Thomas wants Jenn and I to hold him and play with him, but sometimes we need to go to the bathroom, or wash some dishes or make him a bottle, and so in those instances he will give this half-cry, whiny sort of noise thing. I joked a couple times during the weekend that I was looking forward to Monday just a little, so that I may get away from the whine. Also I started thinking that while Thomas is at daycare (Monday-Friday), he has toys and other babies to play with and he's very entertained where as when he's at the house all day with just Mommy and Daddy, he's a little bored.
I suppose it's part of growing up and that it's time to just start telling him to knock it off, and not give him extra attention for his 'squeaky-wheel' actions. If there are any experienced parents that would care to advise or give two cents then please feel free to comment, and as always if you want to just comment on any normal happenings, please feel free to also do that.

As you can see, the more distractions, the better. And yes, we cut his hair outside, because no one wanted to clean up the barber shop if we trimmed hair indoors.
Here is Leia with all her favorite little people. It was a fun party because we had a hand'n foot tournament (card game), and so the kids played with each other, and the adults dealt cards.
So, in a nutshell, our weekend was fun and filled with lots of things. I only posted some of the pictures, but there are many more videos and photos, and so maybe if you're lucky I will post additional things later this week. PS- I enjoy comments, so leave some and maybe that will encourage me to post more cute pictures and even some funny videos.
