A Little Behind....Thanksgiving '09

Thanksgiving '09 was lots of fun! We have lots to be thankful for. Em, Geoff, Erik, Harold, and Trey all ran in the Turkey Trot this year. We all met up for a fabulous lunch at Harold and Debbies and then went to my parents for a wonderful dinner. We were stuffed to say the least.

This year we have a ton to be thankful for. We are thankful for God, who is our strength and our hope. We are also thankful this year for our family, friends, jobs, our house, our cars, and our kids. Yes, I said kids!!! Nolan's little brother or sister will arrive June 2010. We are super excited that God has performed another miracle in our lives. The joy that Nolan brings to us is overwhelming. We can't imagine what it will be like with 2, but we can't wait to find out!!
Nolan (almost 2), Molly (almost 6), Ally (3), and Emma (??4 weeks old, or close to it)

Ben taught Nolan a bad thing at Thanksgiving...taught him to jump in the grocery cart and to be pushed around. Nolan loved every moment!

A Little Behind...Ally's 3rd Birthday

We had lots of fun going to Aggieland for Ally's 3rd birthday party. It was at the gym where the girls take gymnastics. It was lots of fun for the kids and a little stressful for me. Nolan LOVED the trampoline and the pit. It wore me out! Great party though!! Here are some pics. Wish I had gotten more pics of the girls!

A Little Behind...Halloween Update

Well, I am going to try to get caught up on my blog. Yes, I am a little behind. Let's see, I need to go all the way back to Halloween!!

This year Nolan dressed up as a golfer. He got to wear it 3 times. Needless-to-say, we got our moneys worth. Nolan enjoyed trick-or-treating, although he didn't each much candy. He is so picky!!

Also, the weekend of Halloween, we celebrated my father-in-laws 60th birthday. We had a big party and lots of people dressed up.

Go Horns!

Well, we aren't going to the Texas/OU game this year, but we are getting excited about it. We went to the game last week in Austin and had lots of fun. Thought I would share a pic of Erik and I before the game at Ryans house. Thanks for a great weekend Ryan!

Halloween Preview

Nolan tried his costume for Halloween on the other night. I thought it would be too big, so I had my mom standing by for alterations. The size I ordered was a 2T-4T and considering he isn't even 2, I thought it would be a little big. BUT, no it wasn't big at all. The shirt is a little snug and the pants fit perfectly. All mom has to do is cut off about an inch of the sock. Anyways, the pics were too cute not to share. Here's Our Little Golfer! More to come soon!

Weekend in Aggieland

This weekend we (E, N, myself, Mimi, and Pops) went to Bryan/College Station to visit my sister-in-law, Emily, her husband, Geoff, and their girls, Molly and Ally. We had a great time! Friday night we went to Mollys schools Homecoming football game, where she cheered. Saturday morning, we watched Molly play soccer. Saturday afternoon, the ladies went shopping, while the men watched the babies. Saturday evening, Geoff and Erik went to the Aggie football game. Saturday night, we went out to eat for Emilys birthday and had cake and ice cream. We were busy, but had a great time! We love staying at their house because it is super nice and makes us feel like we are on vacation. Thank you Myers for our mini-vacation.

*Nolan did super good sleeping on the nap map. He slept in longer there than he does at home. We might be on to something.

At last...

At last, we are finally finished with our outdoor kitchen. Its not exactly what we pictured, but we love it none-the-less. We can't wait to make memories in our new outdoor living space. 1st party is Saturday night with the Barnard family. ( I hope Erik knows how to work the grill.)

Slowly, but Surely

Over the last 5 weeks, we have transformed out backyard into an outdoor living space. We have slowly, but surely made progress and we are finally beginning to see the end. I can't wait to empty our garage that has been storing all the outdoor furniture. It should be completely finished early next week. So excited!!! (Before, during and after pics)

Happy Birthday Erik!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my wonderful husband Erik. He turns 29 today. He is enjoying his birthday at work, but don't be fooled. He went to breakfast with Simmons, lunch with co-workers, Nolan, and myself, and then on to dinner tonight at his Mom and Dads. We are having a little family get-together Saturday for cake and ice cream. He will also celebrate on Friday when he takes off work to play golf with some friends. You see, Erik celebrates his birthday for at least week!

Nolans 1st Trip to the Zoo

Nolan went to the Dallas Zoo yesterday with his Aunt Lori and Courtney. He loved the farm animals and playing on the playground. He also loved the many things that his Aunt Lori bought for him including his rubber snake, stuffed monkey, shirts, and an animal book. Thank you ladies for taking him! If he is anything like his mommy, he didn't like the smell of the zoo. Who knows...we won't know the answer to that for another year or so.

Waco Childrens Museum

Nolan had so much fun with his cousins, Molly and Ally, today. We met them in Waco at the Childrens Museum. It is the neatest place. Nolan loved watching the trains. His favorite part was probably the cars. He loves being at the wheel...makes him feel in control! Here are some pics from today.
You are looking at a possible future firefighter, school bus driver, pianoist, recording artist, ranch handler, or cardiologist, but for sure a future Indian!!
