Blue Bonnets

Every year, crazy Texans get their kids dressed up and take their picture in the fields of spring Blue Bonnets. Of course, all of these fields are along side busy roads. Amazingly-- there were many families taking pictures of not only kids, but their pets and the adults. So, I had to join the Blue Bonnet group!

American Girl Day




Paige and I went to the American Girl store for her birthday today. For her present, she was able to pick out whatever doll she wanted and a few outfits. Initially, she wanted Josephina Montoya, but after we got to the store and wandered around, she chose Kit. I found a Just Like You doll that looked a lot like her (pigtails and bangs), but she had already made up her mind on Kit.

We picked out a Spring outfit for Kit, an American Girl Dallas shirt and skirt, and Kit's dog, Grace. Then we went to the Bistro to have lunch. Amazingly, the food was delicious-- I had the coconut chicken salad w/ a orange vinegrette and shevra-- possibly the best salad I have ever had in my life. Paige enjoyed her mini hot dog and fruit and veggies. Then the servers brought her a scoop of ice cream and sang Happy Birthday to her!

It was a very special day!

What is it about animals?

So... I just saved a bird from my evil cat Allie. I heard my cats meowing up a storm and I went to check on them. Then I saw the feathers. And I knew there was a bird in my house. I grabbed a minnow net and a towel and tried to find the bird before Allie did. And hiding behind some wood blinds, there was the little black sparrow. It didn't fight and let me catch it in the net and release it back into the wild...

So far, I've saved 4 mice and 2 birds inside my house from Allie the hunter cat.

I woke up and was shocked to see an inch of snow on our Texas grass. Paige was so excited to go play in the snow and have a snowball fight. Unfortunately, it was all melted by 11 am.

Feeding Baby

Okay... here's some baby advice for everyone w/ little babies.

I used to keep my baby food and rice/wheat cereal separate from each other in little bowls when I feed my kids. Then I realized, it all goes to the same place and now I just mix them together. I also have taken a jar of baby food and added it to spaghetti sauce to add a bit of vegetables for my big kids as well!

And, you can check out for some great baby food deals!

Cowboys Game

Aaron received 4 tickets to the Cowboys Monday Night game from his work. So, we invited our friends Joe and Maddie and headed to the new Coyboys stadium. It was pretty awesome. The TV is the biggest one in the world and our seats were directly across from it. The Cowboys won the game and it was cool seeing fellow my EIU graduate, Tony Romo, play again.

Tanner's Dedication

It was a fun day, but not without its surprises. I left Tanner's diaper bag at home with his back up outfit. Usually, that wouldn't be a big deal, but today his poopy diaper leaked all over his overalls and I didn't have a change of clothes. So, we cleaned it up and had a very stinky boy during the dedication. I then changed him into a onesie I found in the car. I have a feeling this boy is going to be the one who keeps me on my toes.

A few new pictures of my silly kids
