Finally more pics

I think Haley just wanted a picture in her jammies, which she has been loving her footed pjs lately. Which I love too, as it makes her look more like a little kid :) And the other pictures is us making icing for Jesus' birthday cake, our new Christmas tradition. Haley said Jesus would like blue icing for his cake, which just happens to be her favorite color :)

It's a Boy!

So, we had THE sonogram this month. Intelli Gender was right! I had read somewhere on the internet that it was 80% accurate, so I guess we were part of the 80% :) Looking back not sure if it was worth it, but the test seemed like a fun thing to do at the time. At least Bryan has a good story of me waking him up to show him my urine sample at 4 in the morning :)

We will be in trouble with Haley, if he turns out to be a girl! She is set on a brother. The dr said she was 99% sure, but I am still looking forward to the next sonogram to confirm :) Here are some pictures of our baby boy.

Who do you think he favors? :)

That time again!

So, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving break, although after acquiring a dog, I think we may just need a full size van or travel trailer. How are we ever going to fit another baby in the car? Really, Tiller (our most recent addition) takes up most of the room :) So, now that Thanksgiving is over, we are thinking about our Christmas cards again. This year we're planning on using Shutterfly's cards http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards. We've used Shutterfly before and had great luck, but they also have really cute ones and great deals! We've typically sent photo cards like this, http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery and then we've also ordered calendars for the family the last two years, http://www.shutterfly.com/calendars/wall-calendars, but I think we'll actually send the traditional cards this year. There's so many cute ones though, it's hard to narrow it down to one :) I would really like to incorporate a picture of all the family, including the newest Hazel and Tiller. So, I'll probably use a card like this...


I really like how you can tell your story on the inside this particular card. We haven't taken any family photos recently so, it will be great to just use random pictures of us for the card.

We should be getting a picture of the newest Hazel this Wed, so I don't have it share now, but here's a picture of our other new addition, Tiller.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We'll have more pictures to come.

Halloween was a hit this year! First we headed over to our neighbors, which they had a pumpkin pre filled with candy. Then we headed off to church for the Harvest Festival. It was so nice to have it all in one place. Haley really enjoyed all the games too! So after the festival, we decided to visit a couple of other neighbors. Haley was so excited, after we got home, she was planning her next "treating". I think she thought we were going the next night. For the next few days, she kept planning out her "treating". She said she was going to walk all by herself, and that mommy could hold baby brother's hand and daddy could walk all by himself. She is very considerate of "little brother" so far :)

Pumpkin Patch at School

So, today I joined Haley for their annual pumpkin activities at school. This year she wore her costume, which is kitty cat. She even has a little tail, but you can't see it. We also have a really cute bag grandma spent lots of time making, but we didn't need it today (no candy). So, they decorated cookies, took pictures, and read a story. It was fun to be with her, and I know she liked the cookies, but I think more than anything, she really liked me coming to her class with her. I love being able to do these things! Thank you so much Bryan!!!!

Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend we went to the Love Creek Orchard in Medina for their pumpkin patch. Haley had a lot of fun. She was able to feed the animals, ride the "train" twice, and even ride a pony! Thank you Jerry for the pictures!

Jet Ski & School

Haley on picture day at school. Mom made the dress (with a little help from GiGi) and bow. She just looked so cute in them. Thank you mom and GiGi!

So, here's how our day at the river ended on the ol' jet ski. We're still working out the kinks. In the mean time, Bryan purchased a paddle to keep with us on the jet ski, in case it happens again :) Luckily this gentleman, on a slightly newer yamaha, was nice enough to tow Bryan back to the dock.

More San Antonio

Our friends, Susan and Jeff met us at the Rain Forest Cafe, and then we headed over to the zoo to ride the train. Haley loves the train! Thanks so much Susan and Jeff for meeting us, we had a great time, and need to do it more often!

Susan, Emma, Jeff & Brady

Later that weekend, we took the jet ski out for a spin. Haley & Dad swimming.

This is how the day started.....see next post for how it ended :)

SA part 2

More museum pictures.. The museum has a special program for toddlers on Friday's so we were able to do that while we were there. It just happened to be painting, one of Haley's favorite things to do! After the museum we went to the Rainforest Cafe. It was neat, but probably not the best thing to do after all the excitement of the Children's Museum.

San Antonio part 1

Friday, we took a little mini vacation to San Antonio. We started the day off with donuts, as I needed to bring some for MOPS, since I had to get them anyway, we might as well eat some too :) After donuts, we headed off to San Antonio for the Children's Museum. It was so nice, and so fun. Haley loved it. HEB had a grocery store just for kids, where they can put things in their buggy and pay for them. When I first asked Haley if she wanted to go to the grocery store she said "I don't get in the buggy". They even had a check out stand that worked, with a scanner and touch screen. More pictures to come!

Kristi invited us to the beach with her and her family, which was so much fun! It was a great mini vacation while hanging out with my best friend! Thank you so much for having us!

Popsicles from the ice cream truck...I don't think I've ever seen so many in such a short period of time, but it was definitely a nice treat, thanks Stan.

I am not sure what Haley enjoyed most, Daisey or the beach :)

Tuesday, July 13, 2010


We went to spend the weekend with the Evertons this past weekend. We had a great time. Thanks for having us! Before we even left, we told her about their dog Boudreaux, and she would say "he's cute" and "I pet him". I am not sure what Haley enjoyed most, Boudreaux or the beach. Saturday we went to Corpus. It was really nice. You can't tell by the pictures, but it was really crowded despite the sea weed.

Haley's favorite thing to do at the beach.....

Heading back for more water to dump out in the sand.....

So, I've been behind on the pictures, and am finally thinking about catching up. Mostly just thinking about it :)

PT (potty training) update: We had taken a huge step back, after days in pull ups. So, after a few days at home with mom, we are almost back to where we were. However, she was dry for the first time after nap! I have never been so excited and proud of somone using the toilet :)

Swim lessons

So, we signed up for swim lessons again. Not sure how much progress we have made, but at least it's fun for Haley and something Bryan and I can both do with her. She loves it! Our first lesson, Haley was great until it was time to leave. As everyone exited the pool after the lesson was over, Haley started crying about swimming, which continued most of the way home. So, before the next lesson, we had a talk about listening to the teacher and when the lesson is over, we all go home. To my surprise, the talk seemed to work!

We're still working on not drinking the pool water :)

Not wanting to go back to dad.....I think she knew it was time to go home :)

Baby Goats

So, this past week we were invited to visit a friend's house that has baby goats. It was a great time, Haley really enjoyed it, and it was a great break from our normal routine, as well as from potty training (again). Thanks so much Jo Jo and Sarah!

Today, we had 3 successful potty breaks in a row so far!!!!
