Happy THIRD birthday to Hunter!  You have no idea how much this boy makes me smile and laugh.   He is laid back, content, happy, talkative, funny, all boy, silly, curious, smart and kind.

You make us proud, Hunter!  Love you so much.

We had the best weekend.  Friday we started it off by celebrating H's bday with a few friends at
Chuck-E-Cheese.  We had the whole place to ourselves and it was so much fun!
His actual bday is Tuesday.  Pretty sure we will be celebrating all week.

The kids got new bikes so we spent most of Saturday outside with 
our neighbors.  I LOVE our neighborhood!!!

H also got a much needed haircut. 

Today after church the kids wanted to do a lemonade stand with 
neighbors and good friends.  It was so much fun!  We had a blast doing
it and the kids ended up making some good money!!
Only in Texas can you do a lemonade stand in January.

Such a fun weekend.  Don't want it to end.
Cold weather is expected tomorrow and most of the week.
We sure enjoyed the time outside the past two days.
Looking forward to spring and
more time outside.

ft worth fair and rodeo

This past weekend the weather was gorgeous!  Bo had Monday off for MLK Day and Abs was out of school so we headed out to the Ft. Worth rodeo for the day.  It was so much fun!  
I didn't know what to expect but there were great rides, "carnie" food, all kind of animals 
to see and games to take our money play.  A perfect day!

Hunter wasn't scared to ride anything....Abby watched him quite a bit.  

Then, out of the blue, she wanted to do this...all alone. She got her mat, walked up there
and the guy gave her quite a push to send her down.  She loved it!

Oh the games.  We came home with a shark and a whale.  Just what we needed.

On the way home....Mission accomplished!  : )

doesn't feel like January

We have been enjoying some time outside this week.  I hate the cedar in the air, but
   I love these cooler mornings and gorgeous afternoons.
It's been too nice to not get out and play.

favorite iphone pics from the holidays

Fun at Bunny and Pappys!

A night at the Capitol to see the lights.  

Christmas Eve service

Boy fun on Christmas morning.

Beautiful sunset

We got home and the kids were worn out!! 

We spent the weekend at a friend's ranch.  Bo went hunting
for the first time and loved it!

On New Year's Eve, Abby got her ears pierced!  She was so excited.
She also knocked out her front tooth the day before.  It was a big couple of days.
She looks 10 in this picture.   I don't like it.

a few quick favorites from the break....

3rd annual Delt dinner.  These friends have been around for about 16 years.
Another great night together.

Parachuting Santa.  We love this tradition as well.  
It was cold, but well worth it.

Christmas in Arkansas.   My parents just built a new house.  This is their view.
I could sit and look at this all day long.

Hunter helping Bunny make a Happy Birthday Jesus cake.

Mom and Dad had all sorts of toys for the kids to play with. 

Another Christmas break has come and gone.  We were out of town for a week and home for a week.  We were busy and we were lazy.  We caught up with friends we haven't seen in a while and made memories with old friends too.  We truly had a great break!

However, tomorrow is Monday and we are back to our routine.  I am looking forward to it.  So much so that Abby's backpack is ready and her lunch is packed.  Here we go!
