Thank Goodness for the iPhone

Posted in: Us- Jan 24, 2012 3 Comments

We are back home, but laying low this week so Burke can get all better. It wasn’t filled with many activities that didn’t involve our living room and my iPhone.  So, Mommy did get a little happy with taking pictures (mostly with her newly found favorite Instagram). So, here’s a photo dump of our boring […]

Burke and Urgent Care

Posted in: Travel, Us- Jan 21, 2012 Comments Off on Burke and Urgent Care

Burke started to not feel so great the day after we pulled into the Houston area. I think he might be allergic to something there, maybe ragweed or pollen…not really sure. He had a little bit of a cough and congestion the last time we were there too, so we didn’t really think too much […]

On Thursday morning we got up and joined my Mom and her dear friends, Carolyn and Beth, on their morning walk. Besides Burke’s grandmas, Carolyn is Burke’s biggest fan. She was so excited to see Burke and get a chance to share the morning walk with him.  Burke and I only made it for the […]

We woke up this morning in Katy and were off to visit with Burke’s aunts. Brett stayed at the house and worked but Mom, Burke and I went to meet Taylor at school for lunch. Afterwards, we dropped in on Erika too.  Burke had a great time sitting in Aedin’s American Doll bed that she […]

22 Hours…

We were woken up this morning very early to deboard the bus and go in and join the Watsons at their house.  It was earlier than we’d normally be getting up, around 630am SB time, but the bus needed some work done before it left again that night, so we made our way in. Burke […]

We’re on a bus!

So, we’re off to Texas again. We’re taking the roads again this time, but Brett isn’t in the driver’s seat.  We are boarding the ShowIt tour bus.  A while back, after a few cross country tours, Brett’s company decided to just go ahead and buy their own bus.  Here she is. There are 9 of […]

The week Grandma came to visit

Grandma arrived on Sunday and our week of fun got off to a great start.  After arriving and making a run to the grocery store, we got home and took a walk to the park.  Grandma started taking the pics right away….documenting Burke’s every move. Burke had a great time at the park, he is […]

Settling into 2012

Being away from home is a catch-22. You get to do a lot of relaxing, hanging out, and really not worry about much else…which is nice. But, you’re also away, so you don’t really get day to day things done too much. So, whenever we come home (and it seems that we’ve been away a […]

Sewing and Quilting Craftiness in 2011

Posted in: Us- Jan 05, 2012 2 Comments

So, I thought I’d play along with most of the quilting blogs that I read, and post a little recap of my quilting/sewing crafts from 2011.  (I just realized, after I’ve already made my collage, that it actually all started with the stuff that I made for Burke’s room….but this is more of my quilting […]

Tournament of Roses 122nd Parade

What a way to start off the new year!  We attended the 122nd Annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena with Betty and Bruce. They are friends with one of the crew that sets up the stands, so we were treated with tickets to fantastic seats. We were right around the first curve of the […]
