Best birthday ever

I've got some great videos, too! We went to dinner, then asked them what they really wanted for their birthday. They both said, "get out ears pierced." I told them, "well, ask daddy." They looked at him, asked and Brian said, "well, okay". Claire started crying. She hugged him and said, "Daddy, thank you so much!" It was awesome!

Goodbye, Skyler. We will miss you.

Skyler was suffering so badly. We made the right decision, even though it hurts our hearts. Pictures and details forthcoming.

New dress?

Nope. Just one I haven't been able to wear since Tyler was born. I bought it for Neil and Sarah's wedding!

Happy Birthday, Tyler!

This is a teenager! This is a teenager about to get donuts for a birthday breakfast for himself and our carpool friends, the Hallidays. And it is also a teenager drinking his first daquari. He was very nervous the bar would slip and put the alcohol in it! After school, we got a surprise visit from Grandpa McMullin (the girls and I told Tyler a clown was coming who made balloon animals. I think he was relieved it was Grandpa!), and a call from Sydney and Ainsley. All in all, a super day!

Self Esteem Crisis

Today in church, Claire asked me several questions. Mom, do all grown up have that extra skin under their necks like you do? Mom, what are those bumps on your face? You have one here, here and here. Mom, what are those blue dots on your legs and ankles? (Varicose veins.) Wow. I love that girl.

Its been a year and a half since I knew we were moving back to Texas and I've been excited all that time to show the girls the bluebonnets. They have pictures in them when they were babies, but they don't remember it! They did not disappoint and were duly excited about seeing the flowers. They have been warned that this picture taking will be an annual event!

Scout-Second Class

Yay! Tyler received his Second Class Scout award! No longer a Tenderfoot and one step closer to Eagle. This morning, Tyler was looking through his Scout manual to see what he needed to do to earn the next rank advancement. Last nights Court of Honor was pretty motivating for him. Disclaimer: Brian's hair isn't as big as it looks in this picture. The shadow from the flash just happens to be the same color as his hair! I'm ignoring his request not to post this picture...a decision I'm sure I will live to regret! ;-)

So, my girls are truly being brainwashed as Texans! They are pretty sure they already own horses. Brian's Uncle Scott has horses, and since they are in the family, they also belong to us. They are planning to have their next birthday party at Uncle Scott's, too! Maybe I should let him know!

New Years Resolution

Even though this is what I see most days, recommitting to start blogging again. Check back often!
