bluebonnets round 1

Now obviously you can tell why this is ’round 1′ of my annual bluebonnet pictures.  So, there will be more pictures to come with sisters!  Really, this morning was just a ‘scouting trip’ to see if I could find any bluebonnets nearby.  Much to Asher’s dismay, we did, and even though it was only 55 degrees outside, (he should know now that mommy will do whatever it takes to get ‘the shot’), I parked him in the middle of the flowers to ‘chill’ (literally) while I snapped pictures furiously.

It’s time for the radio!

Well according to Ella. Other people call it the rodeo, but close enough. Who doesn’t love turkey legs, corn dogs, funnel cakes, pony rides, pig races, and carnival rides (all extremely over-priced I might add.)?  Maybe one day we will actually watch the rodeo, but for now, the girls were happy enough with the ‘carerris wheel’ as Rilyn calls it (she confuses carousel and ferris wheel, but I imagine in Hollywood this would be a very acceptable term, right Bragelina?)

sounds sweet to my soul

As part of our bedtime routine for a month now, we have been reciting The Lord’s Prayer-Matthew 6:9-13. Rilyn picked it up very fast and began reciting it from memory a couple of weeks ago. It is so beautiful to hear your own child hide the Lord’s Word in her heart! Just a couple of days ago, while we were praying, Ella asked if she could say it by herself. “Sure sweetie. Give it a try.”

Wow! Ella being able to memorize this at the tender age of 3 makes me realize how much they do listen and remember everything we say (whether we like it or not!) I will always treasure the sweet sounds of my little daughter giving praise to the Lord in this video.

Matthew 6:9-13 (King James Version)

9 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11Give us this day our daily bread.

12And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

in honor of the rodeo

Asher is 11 months old today!  Poor Asher has a mommy who makes him take nude pictures.  She believes in calling them ‘artistic’ rather than ’embarrassing.’  She hopes you agree.

Do boys just naturally know this ‘pose’?Pretty sure he was really peeing in this one.

When I took off his boots, they were all wet!

Asher just learned how to pat-a-cake thanks to Grandma. He is still not walking, but hopefully he will soon, because mommy is tired of his little knees getting rug burns!

spring BREAK

And by ‘break’ I mean James and I got to take a 2 day ‘getaway’ to the Hyatt Lost Pines resort and spa in Bastrop, TX. We were so blessed to have James’ parents take the girls for a week and my parents take Asher for a couple of days!  I know the kids had more fun than we did.  Don’t get me wrong, it was wonderful to have some R&R, just the two of us, but let’s just say our hotel didn’t live up to expectations.  (For starters, we walked into a dirty hotel room….eeewww!  Nothing like seeing someone else’s wet towels and sheets on the floor when you walk in!)  The list goes on from there(we actually moved hotel rooms twice)…BUT we did have a wonderful time golfing together(my first time to golf 18 holes!) and I would like to try golfing again (there is just that little thing called childcare!)  And we had a ‘duet massage’ that was nice in the resort’s spa.

The girls had such a blast going on their first train ride to Oklahoma City with their Oma and Papaw Bear. In ‘Bricktown’ they were busy visiting all the tourist attractions.

Hi, I’m Bob the tomato!

Yah, I’m using Veggie Tales again in my post!  🙂

My dear little sister is an assistant manager at a tanning salon in Fort Worth. When I was dropping off the girls this morning up there, she let me get a VersaSpa spray tan!  Wow!  Ummm…every time I catch myself in the mirror I scare myself a little bit.  😉   I’m just not used to being ‘tan’ (or some would say orange?!?).
