Lego Castle Adventure

Seth has always loved knights and castles (his room even has this theme), so when the Lego tour came through Waco in August we had to go! (Yes, I did say August... I never got around to blogging about it). The kids and Uncle Caleb had a blast building castles, looking at the amazing details of the castles on tour, jousting, and giving the catapult a try. If this tour ever makes it to your area, we highly recommend making a visit.


Trunk-r-Treat 2010

Another year of Mad Science fun proved to be a success at Trunk-r-Treat. With over 1400 in attendance it was a big hit! My family always has fun with costumes, make-up, and music... the kids really enjoyed the "test tube" ice pops we handed out as treats (especially before the sun went down), and then glow sticks in the dark made for mad fun. It was truly a blessed event and I pray that fellowship within the community and church grows as a result.


Cub Jeans

I embellished a pair of jeans for Karsyn so she can cheer the Cubs on this year (so much cheaper than a cheer leading skirt). She loves to jump and cheer "Go Marty Go!"

I love fall

I love the cool crisp air, jackets, and kids romping thru the leaves. Although none of these things have actually happened yet, I anxiously await their arrival. In anticipation I put out some fall decor inside the house, changed my Scentsy to something warm and cozy, and changed my blog background... Somehow it makes September 22 (actual first day of Autumn) come a little sooner. Pics to come...



The two best posers I know... I love you girls!!!

Christmas Cards

You know how it is with kids... take 50 pictures and only get a few that look nice. Well, the day we planned to take pictures for our annual Christmas card, a cold front came through, but I felt pressured by the calendar so my kids had to smile through the freezing cold. We went to a good friend's house that has great character and she let us have fun snapping away. There were actually several pictures that I liked... more than would fit on a card, so I'm posting some of them now (after the fact). Call this Happy New Year with a smile!!!

Okay, so Karsyn drumming on Seth's head was not picture perfect... but the picture does reflect her flamboyant, menacing personality... She keeps us on our toes...

The kids had a great time playing with Sully while we were there. They fed him treats and even got him to "sing."

Thanksmas 2009

Our annual Thanksmas picture with Santa...

My best friend & her niece went with us this year and we all had fun together (aside from Annie's little pulled muscle).

New Puppy

We are still potty training, but isn't she the cutest thing...

Bat Duo

I failed to post pics of the kids at Halloween and I thought they were too cute not to post (just becuase Mommy never got around to it). My little Batman and "Dat-Dirl" had lots of fun and were quite the pair in both their tricking and treating.
