Ian James!

I took Ian to his 2 month appointment today and he is growing like a WEED!

He now weighs 12 lbs 7 oz and is measuring at 23.5 inches!

He is such a great baby!! I was worried because he was pretty fussy the first few weeks he came home but now he is mostly happy and smiling! He is actually sleeping until 4 or 5 in the morning too! We love having him around!


These pictures are too funny not to post! This all started with my sister-in-law Mary. She has the funniest sense of humour. I really love to be around her because she always makes me laugh. This is my sweet nephew Hunter, aka Sergio. When we all get together, Mary makes him her personal assistant. He is at her beck at call and she calls him SUPER Sergio! He did a couple of photo shoots while we were there and this one is my favorite!! What a funny guy!


Yesterday morning Sarah crawled into my bed and said, "hey mom look, I can do this now!" I laughed so hard at the face she was making along with her wink! A few weeks ago we picked up the kids from our neighbors house and this was stuck in Sarah's hair. Britten had gotten it so stuck by twisting and turning it. Sarah just thought she was getting a fancy hair-do. Well, we tried to get it out but it would not budge. I even used tons of shampoo thinking I could pull out one strand at a time. Sarah was so brave but in the end the comb won! We had to cut out the comb and give her a little cut as well. It looks much cuter now!
The after shot!
In Texas the kids love to take a bath in my mom's kitchen sink. I put Sarah in and when I came back to wash her hair this is what she looked like. Silly girl.
Razzle Dazzle Raspberry!! So, I have several painting projects and am so excited to own this house so I can start doing them! While in Texas Jeff started with the first coat and I finished it off yesterday with the trim and second coat! It is so BRIGHT!! but fun. I have big letters on boards to hang over her bed - they are somewhere in the basement!

What is a party without a PINATA!!

More 4th FUN!

Happy 4th of July!

Jenny's new horse

Sarah was so cute this trip! She was always right where the action was. One of her favorite things to do was ride Jenny's horse Amira. Jenny said she was a natural and spent so much time kissing and hugging her. I might have a cowgirl in the mix!

Bear also had sooooooooooooo much fun there!! There is so much land for him to run and play on. He went with us everywhere and pretty much just lounged around the farm house when we were home. Mary and Rich wanted to keep him there for summer camp but we could not leave him because we would miss him too much!


John and Stockton!
Spencer and Britten!!
Katie and Emma!
Barbara Jane and Jenny!!

small town parade!

There is nothing like a small town parade!! The kids enjoyed catching and eating candy from the people in the parade!

RODEO in Belfy

The night we arrived we went to a rodeo in Belfry. It was really fun!
