I never know what she is going to come up with next. Today she found her costume and it put her in the mood to watch the movie. This was funny sight to me.

a great family night

puzzle time

future best friends, I hope.

Tonight we just had a family night and had fun! We did puzzle games to start, went to Lake Pflugerville for a walk at sunset and dropped by a park to play (and burn off the last bit of energy)! We love hearing what Lil' C. has to say these days. She has all her little opinions now. Lil' A. continues to have a major fear of ants and spiders - which dictates how much fun she has outside (we are working through that). Adam and I know setting aside family time seems like work sometimes, but it is always so rewarding. It was neat seeing so many people out doing the same thing. These moments are so sweet!

park play

Just a fun afternoon with some park play.

We love RayRay!

Her sunglasses were a favorite gift this bday.
We all miss Aunt RayRay and can't wait for her visit in October!

a new dance class

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

We started a new dance studio about 1 mile from our house.
It is called Greater Austin Dance Academy. So far, we love it!
Lil' sis is content to eat snack & watch a cartoon, while the class is going on.

She is dancing on the far right.

I can do it too!

She watches and learns routines from her sister's dance recital video. Here she is performing "Baby Face." She has actually convinced herself that she danced on the video and will point to the tv saying..."dat's me, right tear!"

neighborhood cookout

Monday, September 3, 2007

It never fails...if we invite neighbors over, we always have to pray for God to hold off the rain. We are not completely sure what God is teaching us in this. We had a cookout for our neighbors on Memorial Day weekend last spring and here is a picture of the storm right over our house when the party was supposed to start. Today you can see almost the same looking storm. Well, it did rain for a little bit and for the first half-hour no one was around. Adam and I were laughing at the scenario a bit. We had a party all set up and it was looking like we were going to have a quiet night at home. But just like before, the rain didn't discourage everyone. And we had eight families join us for a cookout tonight. It was a really good time, and we met new people. God allows rain each time, but we see His faithfulness in the big picture.

mini-trip to the Salt Lick

the butter-moustache!

silly in SueSue's hat & TGO's glasses

On Sunday evening, we went and joined TGO & SueSue at the Salt Lick in Driftwood, Tx. I was the only one who had been and it was fun to experience it all together. We enjoyed BBQ on a screened in patio, with cooler weather after a thunderstorm. It actually felt a little like Tx fall weather. I have thrown down a challenge to Mom & Dad...they have to come up with the next authentic-Austin-dining-experience. Can't wait!

just 4 years??

Saturday, September 1, 2007

How does this transition happen in only 4 years??
I'm overwhelmed sometimes at how grown up she's getting.

daddy/daughter date night

They had a daddy-daughter date this weekend. It sounded like a lot of fun (completely tailored to them) because they went on a "progressive-dessert" date at the mall. They apparently hit up three stands - candy, icecream, & pretzel! So fun to hear about their "sweet" time.

playing at Amy's

SueSue recently took us out on a lunch date to Frisco's downtown & Amy's IceCream on Burnet. The girls enjoyed getting out for lunch and playing on the playscape at Amy's. My mom always loves to share local "Austin" places with us. The girls and I had a great time...SueSue always has fun ideas!

my first blog

Over the past month...

Lil' C. turned two
I witnessed my sister’s wedding
I went to my high school reunion
Celebrated Dad’s 60th bday
Found my daughter giving herself a haircut
Watched friends plant two new churches in Austin
Had my 5th wedding anniversary

Wow! Nothing like…a restful summer month. Now we are making our plans for the fall. Lil' A. starts dance classes again and we will attempt to do preschool lessons at home. Lil' C. remains content most of the time to tag along, if she is well fed, of course.
