So Much To Be Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving from the Kalivoda Family!!! We had a wonderful time in Oklahoma visiting Brad's family and we are a little sad to already be back in Lubbock (Brad had to work on Friday, so we left Thanksgiving evening and made that glorious 6 hour drive home!)
On our way home from Oklahoma last night, Maddox was wide awake just chillin in his car seat for the last 4 hours of the drive (keep in mind, we did not leave Oklahoma City until about 6pm, which would get us home around midnight....so for Maddox to be awake, not upset at all and it be almost 11pm, well, we were a little shocked to say the least) all of the sudden about 40 miles away from the house, Maddox starts counting. Now normally his counting sounds a little like this "One, two, one, two, one! Yeah!!!" So when Maddox started out with "One, Two...." we obviously assumed another "one, two, one" would follow.....well much to our surprise, Maddox just took off and said "three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten!!!! Yeah" Brad and I both sat there, looked at each other with the most bewildered look on our faces and couldn't believe what we had just heard. Maddox continued to count to ten the entire way home!! It was so funny! Way to go little man...you never cease to amaze us!!! Well, I was able to get his counting on video this evening while the Madd-man was taking a bath (please forgive the horrible quality of video, I had to stand in the hallway so he wouldn't see the camera...if he sees the camera he wants to see what is on it and will not let me take a good video any more....learning to be a little sneaky)
