it’s coming…

I love, love, love receiving Christmas cards, more specifically the ones with family photos. To all my friends and family: I expect cards this year(and I don’t mean store bought Christmas cards that you just sign your name in-no slackers!)  I’m already in the process of thinking what to do this year.  Hmmm…
I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing this though.

From November 2008

Yes, I will claim them as my family.

this might scare some people

As I was glancing around my closet today, I happened to look upon something I hadn’t seen in awhile…some might ask why I still have it…I wonder that myself.

From November 2008

Here is the lid to my collection of erasers from when I was in elementary school and junior high. You can see I’m quite the artist with nail polish!
So what do you find when you open it up…

From November 2008

BAM!  You better believe I was proud of myself for this collection of 245 erasers!!! How, do you ask, do I know how many erasers I have? Well, of course I found an inventory I did on them all-DUH! (Friends who know me shouldn’t be surprised.) I even put them in catergories like “hearts” and “Christmas” and “places”

From November 2008

What makes me laugh is that I was so OCD that I even did inventory on the tiny erasers that you buy in bulk for a dollar.

From November 2008

People, I even have a toilet eraser. Geesh.

3 decades

Seven years of marriage and 3 kids later…not bad at all for a 30 year old! 😉 Happy Birthday to the best husband and daddy in the world! We love you with all of our hearts!! God has done so much through you and you have blessed us and so many others beyond measure.

it starts

Aggie football season is upon us…at least someone in this family is excited!

(This was on the front page of the sports section in The Bryan Eagle on October 29, 2000. We were seniors and had pretty good seats. If you know James, you know that he really is a big Aggie football fan so this picture is even funnier!)  (I added the text bubbles obviously.)

We are going to the game tomorrow…go Aggies!!!! Whoop!

Time for a new blog

Okay, so I enjoy reading people’s blogs and get somewhat frustrated when they haven’t updated in awhile so I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what to blog about since it’s been a week since my last post…it’s been slow in the Paquette household these days-(which is a GOOD thing and I’m not complaining!)

Anyways! I was looking through my old yearbooks and came across my 6th grade one from 1991. In my yearbook we had a ‘Most Likely to Be:’ section and in my class of 46 kids, I was voted

Most likely to:

be President of the USA

be a Nobel Prize winner

live to be 100

be an inventor

Hmmm…not quite sure what that says about me but I think the overall theme is that I was a dork. 😉 Now I will humble myself and share my 6th grade picture with you. (Yes, that is a home perm).

Good Friday

April, 1999.

At Texas A&M, James made it into the Battalion, our school’s newspaper, for his performance of ‘the criminal’ in the crucifixion scene.

10 years ago…

So someone other than James had to remind me that this month James and I have officially been together for 10 years. I guess we’re not big romantics! 😉 (Okay, and there was a break-up in 1999 for a little while, but you know what I mean.)  Our 7 year wedding anniversary (and three kids later) is coming up soon too-time flies by!!!  So, here is our first pics together that my mom took at my house in Temple while James came to visit me during Spring Break of 1998. (Gotta love James’ hair!)

Why do I have so many pictures like this?

Old friends are good for many reasons, but one of the best reasons is the pictures to look at later. Enjoy Halim and James’ modeling days…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This was me and James’ first Valentines Day in 1999.  We were dating just under a year.  He took me to a park in College Station and we had a picnic and took black and white photos b/c he knew I liked photography.




My photography business!
