Pictures with Santa



Sophie's School had a visit from Santa.

I wasn't able to be there, but as you can see, after a week of showing Sophie pictures of Santa to get her use to him, it seems to have paid off. No screaming or tears to speak of.


I must say I am really quite proud of her.

Walk a little slower Daddy

Walk a little slower, Daddy,


Said a little child so small.


I'm following in your footsteps

and I don't want to fall.


Sometimes your steps are very fast,

Sometimes they are hard to see;


So, walk a little slower, Daddy,


For you are leading me.

Today is a great day!

Just a reminder to myself what a great day it is. The sun is shinning, I have people I trust watching Sophie. Dustan and I both have work, and most of all our Lord and Savior is right here loving me daily. Pretty awesome huh?

Man it is December already!
We are doing crazy good. Dustan is the Director of Sports Medicine at TAMU-Commerce, and I am still working in the Interlibrary Loan Department at the University Library. Sophie is attending Noah's Nursery at the local Methodist Church. We had a hard football season this year and only won one game, but we are looking forward to seeing what the basketball teams can do this year. Christmas parties are starting up and we would love to see every one, but of course we know that is a lofty goal. Christmas decorations are up and Sophie is trying hard to touch each and every ornament on the tree.

Spring has come

Slowly but surely, the plants are beginning to bloom.
I have had a great time digging, watering, and watching my flower beds. Sophie's been helping (maybe hanging out with mom is a better discription). It's a lot of work, but seeing that sudden burst of color makes it all worth it.

Now if I can get through the next couple of months without killing it all:)...

Snow Day!!!


This was taken on Feb. 4 when all of the snow came in.
We had a blast playing in the snow, for those of you that remember my craving for snow when I was pregnant, you may find it funny to know Sophie loves eating it too!

Crazy Hair Sophie!!!

It stays like this if we brush it up after bath time.

She may have a great career as a mad scientist.

We just love you guys!

Christmas

We had a great time at Christmas this year!
We got to go spend some time with our family in Houston. Sophie made friends with the dogs out on the property, and now anytime she even hears a dog bark, she gets really excited.
Christmas morning was pretty low key, but Sophie seemed to enjoy herself, expecially when Dustan started putting the wrapping paper from his gifts over her head and they played peek-a-boo for about 10 minutes straight:).
Christmas with my folks was great! We got to spend time with Sophie's 4 1/2 cousins (Julie's little one isn't quite here yet).
Food as always was wonderful and I wouldn't trade the time with family for anything.
The New Year has come and I can't wait to see what 2011 brings-
Love you guys
