Peanut turned 8!!

We recently (and by recently, I mean I am way behind in posting this b/c it's been over two weeks) celebrated Peanut's 8th birthday. Crazy, I know! We came up with a "Survivor" theme, you know the TV show? We usually watch that as a family and really enjoy all of the challenges they compete in. So, we thought at MeMe & PaPa's we could come up with a few challenges between the playscape and the swimming pool. It was a lot of fun and I think everything went well. Of course, we ended up with a few activities we could have skipped out on b/c the kids wanted to spend more time in the pool. By the time I get things just right (# of activities, when to eat, etc.) she will no longer be interested in me planning her parties. Anyway for now, I'll try to have as much fun as possible.

Hello out there!

Just wanted to say HI to anyone still checking in on me (us). We've been very busy as you might have guessed since I haven't posted since Easter.

We are no longer residents of beautiful Austin. BUT, we are much closer to family and I think we are going to love our new city just as much. If not, we'll be spending all our vacation time in Austin.

Well, I think that's all for now. There's a lot coming up & I am going to try to start posting regularly again so ... stay tuned!

When knees collide:

A little knee on knee action from my last soccer game. I'm going to work on my bruise photography, because this picture does very little justice to the actual bruise. For some weird, creepy, freako reason I really like my bruises. Only the really good ones though. So I decided I'd start taking pictures for those of you who don't get to see my battle wounds in person. No, you don't have to thank me ... there are no strings attached. Just enjoy.

A lot of things!

We have been pretty busy for the past month.

We went to OK for Christmas Break.

While we were there our nephew Jacob turned two. We went to his birthday party in the freezing icy weather.

Of course we were shopping up until Christmas Eve. Though, we still managed to get everything we needed.

We had Christmas at Tim's parents and at my Mom's.

We left Peanut visiting family and we headed back home.

Tim & I took a train New Year's Eve to San Antonio. We walked over to the River Walk, ate dinner & listened to the fireworks at midnight. It was too darn cold to wander down to watch them. After we ate, we decided to just hurry back to the train b/c it was sooo cold. Our train ride would continue for another 22 hours until we arrived in Maricopa, AZ. We met up with Tim's parents and sister for the Fiesta Bowl. Unfortunately, the game didn't quite go our way. And to top it off, or maybe the game topped this off ... Tim got to leave the game in an ambulance so he could get 8 stitches to his eyebrow. Apparently, his red mowhawk drew him some unwanted attention and one right cross to the sunglasses. I also got my first ambulance ride as a passenger for this special occasion. Oh, and we were at the hospital past midnight so the date was now Jan 3rd ... my birthday! Luckily, it really could have been worse and it kind of took the edge off that final score. We flew home the next day and that was uneventful.

My Mom closed on her house. Peanut & I helped pick paint colors with her. Then Tim & Jason did lots of heavy lifting. She'll be completely moved in by the end of the month and I'm sure will be busy decorating for a while. I really love her new place. It has lots more room so visiting in the future ought to be more comfortable for everyone.

Well, I think that about wraps up our last month or so ... I'll post some pics of our winter fun.
