Family Pictures

Today, we got in our family pictures!! I love them, and am so glad that we did them. (Thanks Victoria!)

 Paul is most likely leaving in the next few weeks to go work in North Dakota, and to have pictures of this time to look back on is priceless.

So, without further ado...

Paul & Amber

There are more, but these are the ones that I got scanned today. (Thanks, Mom!)

Hope everyone has a Happy Friday & great Weekend!

Monday is here again. I have not been taking a lot of pictures with my camera, but I have a couple from my cell phone. We are going to pick up our family pictures today, and I am hoping to get them scanned & on the blog in the next few days. Until then.....

This first picture is Brinn in her car seat ready to go out for the day.

Here is Raylee ready to go out for the day.

This final picture is the girls last night. Brinn was in her chair, and Raylee was at her table. Raylee was making Brinn laugh so hard. It is so fun to watch them play together.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Pictures from some things lately...

These are just a few pictures of some things that have been going on around here lately. Paul & I figured out how to tame Raylee's wild curls. When her hair is dry, we spray it with a spray bottle full of water, until it is pretty damp. Then just comb through it with a comb, and let dry.

This next picture is Adrianna & Brinn hanging out on the couch. Adrianna is so sweet with her.

We finally took some family pictures last week. It was hard to get both girls to sit still & look at the camera, but I think they turned out pretty cute.  I am hoping to get those on my blog soon!

Finally, a couple pictures of Brinn in one of her favorite spots. The Walker. Raylee & Brinn can play with the tray full of toys together, and everyone is happy!

Hope you have a great day!

Brinn 5 Months

Yesterday, Brinn was 5 months old.

This month Brinn loves standing up. She is already making laps in her walker. She only goes backwards, but she uses her little legs to propel herself all over.

I put Brinn in the same dress Raylee wore in her 5 month picture. Here they both are for comparison.

I think they look different, but still like sisters. It is hard to believe in 1 short month she will be 1/2 a year old!

We love you Brinn Danielle!

Have a great day.

Texan's Playoff Game!

On Saturday, Paul & I were given the chance to go to the Texans vs. Bengals playoff game at Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX! (Thanks Dad & Lenora) We got a babysitter (Thanks Granna & PawPaw), and headed out that morning for some tailgating before the game at 3:30. Tailgating at Reliant is awesome. Food, music, food, drinks, more food! I know I tried 4 different kinds of sausage. Here are some pictures from tailgating.

Then we made the walk up to the stadium. Everyone was so excited, cheering the whole way. By the time all 71,725 people were inside with the roof closed, it was LOUD in the stadium.

The game did not disappoint. After getting off to a slow start,the Texans took the lead before the half on a J.J. Watt interception for a touchdown. The first rookie to ever do that in the playoffs!

I wish I had taken more pictures of the game but it was hard to capture it on a camera. If you watched the game you know. TEXANS WON! Headed to the next round!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hello 2012

Well the New Year is here. The best thing about 2011, for me, was the birth of Brinn. I may be a little biased about it, but she brings so much joy to our family. We are hoping that 2012 brings health & happiness to our family, and to yours. I'm starting off with the last few pictures of 2011.

Sweet sisters

Brinn has graduated to the walker. Bittersweet.

Lounging in her new chair from Grandpa & Grandma. Both of the girls like this chair.

More walker pics.

Granna & PawPaw watched the girls on New Year's Eve, so Paul & I decided to stay home, cook, and play games. It was so nice to get some uninterrupted sleep, and a good way to start of the New Year.

On New Year's Day we went to Pauls sister April's house for some yummy food & more presents. I forgot my camera, so these pictures are from my cell phone, but we had fun spending time with family.

Sweet little smile

When we got home, I had to try these little shoes on Brinn that her Grammie got her. Love those little leggies.

Hope everyones 2012 has started off well. Have a great day!
