Add Another for the Hamiltons

We are so excited to announce that Dena and I are gaining a nephew and Tucker is getting another cousin.

We found out, in July, that my brother Greg and his wife Amelia were pregnant with their second child.  They went to the doctor yesterday and got the news that they would be having a bouncing baby boy.  Our niece, Maddie, is very excited and they let her announce the addition to everyone through a video posted to Facebook.

It will be awesome to have another member of our growing family.  It should also be interesting to see how much trouble Tucker and his cousin get into in the future.  Tucker probably won't need any help in this area and they are sure to keep us busy and entertained.

Claw & Antlers

The Texas Rangers have advanced to the ALCS for the first time ever.  We wanted to watch the game, but we also wanted to enjoy it with a group of people.  We decided that the best thing to do would be to join the crowd at Buffalo Wild Wings and cheer on the home team.

Josh is our favorite!
Dena, Tucker, and I put on our new Rangers shirts and headed to Sherman.  We had a great time eating and watching the game with the other fans.  The place went wild when Josh Hamilton hit his home run!  Alas, all the fun and yelling took its toll on Tucker and we had to head out during the 7th inning.  Apparently we should have stayed because it was all down hill from there.  With Tucker in bed, Dena and I sat in disbelief as the hated Yankees tied the game, then went ahead.

It was a bad loss for the Rangers and disheartening for the fans, but we still had a great time watching together as a family!  Hopefully they can get it together and win tomorrow night!
