my one and only is one!

Today my one and only nephew is one year old!  I love him so much and he is such a tender-hearted, easy-going little big boy!  He usually is smiling and toddling around with a ball!  I love that we live close to my brother and I will get to watch Caden and Asher (15 months apart) grow up together!  We got to babysit Caden last weekend and of course I couldn’t resist taking some pictures of him!  (And I also couldn’t resist letting him try on his birthday present we got him!  Go Angels!)

look at those baby blues!

foiled again!

So today, I just knew I would get my Easter bunny pictures.  I went to Lakeline mall, which there is no question that this mall is thriving, and a bunny would be there.  I also had all three kids with me, which was an added bonus!  Color coordinating clothes-check!  All set!  Well, when we got there I saw the line and I knew there was no way Asher was waiting in that!  Foiled again!  Grrr…

Oh well, my kids will just have to do with this for now!  (Truth be told, my kids could care less about the bunny, they know he isn’t real and I just like doing it for scrapbooking purposes.)  😉

check out that line!
we went in for a closer look!

*And I’m so glad I did not wait in that line! I was talking to a woman in the elevator who waited an hour and a half and said they ran out of photo paper when they got to her kids and then they had the nerve to tell her she couldn’t even take a picture with her cell phone! She had to just let her kids sit on the bunny’s lap and leave!

**Hey, I still have one more day to get a picture with the Easter bunny, so don’t count me out yet!


Merry Christmas!

Because Rilyn started kindergarten this year, we thought it would be appropriate to do a ‘family report card’  in lieu of a traditional letter.  Enjoy!

Go Cowboys! Go Aggies!


college football fashion

We love our college football and are looking forward to it starting this weekend!  Since 2001, my parents have had Aggie football season tickets and we enjoy going to the games.  This year, I’m afraid the only thing I will have to look forward to is the fashion.  (See previous blog post for our preseason ranking.)

Oh, you didn’t know the Ags have a fashion line?  Well, let the modeling begin!

say cheese!

Rilyn knows her mommy loves to take portraits on her actual birthday (part of my OCDness).  But, she got to go to Build-A-Bear next door afterwards so I think she was alright.

u.f.o sighting

this is a swing!

James took the kids to a new park on Saturday morning (before all the rain!) so I could continue to scrapbook our Disney trip.  (Thanks babe!)

Wow, parks are sure changing these days!  James came back with lots of pictures, (seriously James, I’m trying to catch up on my scrapbooking!) of all these crazy looking structures.  He said the park was very cool and I’m looking forward to going this summer!  Here is the link for all my Austin friends-Mueller Lake Park.
