Posted in: Us- Dec 26, 2012 4 Comments

Now that Christmas has passed, and everyone has gotten their gifts…..I wanted to recap the things I made this year.  It was another DIY Christmas around these parts….and I got mostly everything done in time.  There were a few people…namely the men and teenage boys, that I just couldn’t come up with anything good for, […]

I forgot to make a post about this, so I thought today would be a good day to do so.  I made this quilt for my dear friend Renae’s baby girl last month before I went to TX and gave it to her when I was there.  Well, today, 12.19.12, her baby girl was born […]

After it rained for an entire week upon our return from TX, we decided it was time to get Burke some rain boots.  They are a little big, but with an extra pair of socks on, under his fuzzy jammies, and a little bit of paper towel stuffed in the toes….hey, they are a perfect […]

12.12.12 A Day in the Life of Mommy and Burke

Posted in: Us- Dec 12, 2012 4 Comments

I’ve been thinking about doing a post like this for a long time, but never got around to doing it. When my friend, Becca, did one kind of like it this week, I decided to go for it and thought today would be a great day to do so. Not all of our days are […]

Dear Burke,

Dear Burke, You’ve officially passed the year and a half mark.  You are closer to two than you are to one, and that means you’re still growing up too fast. This last month you’ve continued to stun your parents with all the little things you can do.  You are a whiz on the iPad and […]

The Rest of the Texas Trip

We took so many pictures that it would take me a few more weeks to sort through and do them day by day, but I wanted to post some of the faves from the rest of our time visiting family in TX over Thanksgiving break. Burke got real excited when he saw the big giant […]

Hanging with the Family back in Katy

We got back to Katy on Tuesday afternoon, and not too long after, Erika and the cousins came over to see us.  We didn’t get to see them when we made it into town, and they were anxious to see “Burkey”. Erika brought over their train toys and Burke had a great time playing with […]

{another} 24 Hours in ATX

Lucky for Mommy and Daddy, Burke slept in a bit due to the time change, and way late bedtime.  He got himself reacquainted with Clyde first thing.  Not so sure that Clyde was all that excited about the reunion, but Burke was giddy.  He looked for the “mauw mauw” and gave him lots of love […]

Leaving on a Jet Plane

We headed to Texas for Thanksgiving this afternoon, and decided to fly this time again. We knew it might be a little trickier, since I didn’t have much (any) lap space for Burke, and we’d be traveling with lots of stuff….but we made it! We borrowed this cute little monkey backpack from one of our […]
