Welcome Home Twinkle!!

So sorry I forgot to update you all on the safe return of Twinkle! We have been busy getting reacquainted with each other and he has been living life to the fullest, glad to be out of his traveling box! While it was cute, it was quite stuffy and dark and he is now terrified of confined spaces. Luckily this past week was absolutely beautiful in Southern California, as we took full advantage of the great weather and headed outside!

We are expecting some rain and thunderstorms this weekend, so we had to make good use of our nice weather while we could! This weekend we are attending some bridal fairs, and Twinkle will be experiencing first hand all the work that goes into planning a wedding! Thank you all for participating! If you would like Twinkle to come visit you, email Amy at thescrappycupcake at gmail dot com and we will set up a visit!!

As Promised...One More Texas Post

I was invited to Girls Night Out, even though OBVIOUSLY I am not a GIRL! When you are stuck in purse, you go where you are toted.

The evening began with S'Mores at Halcyon. What a fun place! One of the guests said, "I feel like I am in a foreign film and expect to see subtitles pop up at any mintute."

My fear of fire kept me from being in the picture.We followed S'Mores up with a trip to the Irish pub (Fado') next door. I was forced to drink copious amounts of Guinness.
All in all, it has been a great time here in Texas. I can't wait to see where I go next!

So Much to Do...So Little Time

Well, my time here is drawing to a close. So much has happened since I last posted.

First I went to a trunk or treat event at the church. The family had fun decorating the truck. I even got in on the action.
We decorated it honor of Gary's brother who is serving in Iraq. He is a big Oklahoma State Cowboys fan. Considering Gary is an OU guy, that took a lot of compromise. But Gary would do just about anything for his little brother.

On Monday, Gary took me golfing. It wasn't just any old golf outing either. It was a tournament to raise money for the Hope Pregnancy Center - a place where Annemarie's father spent countless hours volunteering to counsel men and women about crisis pregnancies and parenting.

Gary played 100 holes for the fundraiser and carried me along. Having never golfed, I wasn't much good in the advice area, but I enjoyed the view while I was there.

This will not be my last post from Texas, however. Today is Annemarie's birthday and her friends are taking her for a Girls Night Out on Saturday. They said I could come along even though I am a boy. I will share with you on Sunday, provided my host can wake up and turn on the computer for me.

Fun at the Pumpkin Farm

Today I was taken on a little road trip.

Sweet Berry Farm was having their Harvest of Fall Fun.

The family made their way through a maze of maize in the shape of Texas. After finding the location of eleven stations throughout the maze and getting their cards punched, they were rewarded with sodas.
The day ended with photos in the pumpkin patches.

It was definitely a good day.
