My Girl

I had a great Christmas! Cayce and I got engaged and we had a great time with Andy and our families. Looking forward to a forever happy marriage to my best friend, Cayce! Happy New Year's everyone!

Ice Cream

When Andy is eating ice cream, don't bother asking for a bite, as he gets so lost in the treat he seems to disregard the English language.

Pumkin Fun

Had a blast this past weekend with Andy at the pumpkin patch. Later that day, we painted pumpkins with Cayce and it was quite an adventure. Believe it or not, Andy actually wanted to paint a train on his pumpkin...and I know this is probably hard to believe, as his obsession with trains has only lasted for 4 of his 5 years on Earth.

This is Andy on a tractor at the pumpkin patch.

Andy is walking through the corn maze and I thought that was an awesome picture. That maze was more challenging than I thought it would be!!

Like Father, Like Son

Andy went cruising in his Chevy Silverado tonight.
It was super cute because there were so many kids
out tonight since it was such a pretty night. The
boys aged 3 to 6 wanted to be him, and the little girls wanted to be sitting next to him....he was the "bad guy" cruising up and daown the street. It was hysterical.
When we got home he made sure he got the parking spot in the garage....meanwhile Dad's Tahoe is in the driveway!! HAHA.

Circus Time

Went to the circus last night with Andy. We were in the first row, so the view was pretty good. Even with the good seats, however, I could not get a good pic of my favorite part...the motorcycle riding bear. The look on that bear's face was priceless...content and relaxed as he could be.

The trapeze was right over our heads!

Saturday Fun

Andy and I have a tradition - on the first Saturday of every month we go to Whataburger for breakfast. He gets a cinnamon roll ,and I get a taquito. Then we go to Home Depot for the building project.
Today Andy built a firehouse bank. He did a great job. The fire department was there with a couple of firetrucks for the kids to explore, and that got those kids really excited. Andy has the sun in his eyes for the picture on the firetruck - he looks upset, but he was having a blast.

I like the bank. As you can see on top of the bank, Home Depot is trying to teach the kids a good lesson - There are dividing walls inside the bank to keep the money separate, for saving, sharing, and spending. Andy emptied my loose change from the Tahoe into his bank....pennies and nickels into the saving and sharing slots, and quarters into the spending slot!! Smart little cookie.

Andy's First Day of Kindergarten

This is my big 5 year old on his first day of Kindergarten. He has been going to pre-school for a few years at the same school so it was not a scary day for him. He is doing a great job with his reading, actually reading words from a third grade reading list! It is fun looking at his school work and seeing his progression with his handwriting and math skills. After his first week of Kindergarten I asked him, "What did you learn this week, son?" - He replied, "Nothing, Daddy, I already knew all that stuff."
