Pool and Patchwork

Posted in: Family, Travel, Us- Apr 24, 2012 1 Comment

It was a sunny TX day, so in the late afternoon, I thought it might be nice to try again with Burke and the pool. At first, with just his little hands in the water splashing around, he was fine. Then Daddy tried to submerse him in the water starting with his toes……and well, that […]

Wrapping up the weekend in TX

Posted in: Family, Travel, Us- Apr 22, 2012 Comments Off on Wrapping up the weekend in TX

We woke up and loved a home cooked pancake and bacon breakfast cooked by (my) Daddy. After Burke’s nap, we boogied over to be able to say goodbye to Gavin, Terry and Colin.  We caught them just in time! Burke discovered the drumset inside and the cousins rocked out together. What better to do on […]

A TX Saturday filled with lots of Family Love!

We had a super filled Saturday that started out at Shipley’s Donuts.  It was on the way to the soccer field, so I had to stop in and get some sausage and cheese kolaches as well as one powdered bavarian cream donut.  Oh, it made me a happy girl! After the soccer game, Burke took […]

A Fun Friday in TX

Well, we got a decent night’s sleep….well, from 1am to 9am.  Lucky for Mommy and Daddy, Burke let us sleep in a bit which was super nice!  My Mom, Burke and I went to visit with Auntie Taylor for lunch at school.  This is Burke’s 3rd visit to her school and he always has such […]

Grandma Melva

Two weeks ago I lost only the second family member in my life, my Grandma Melva. She lived an incredible 88 years and nearly the last 5 without the love of her life, my Grandpa Stan. For myself, the last two weeks have been somewhat of a relief, knowing that my grandma is ultimately in […]

We went to Vegas for several reasons this trip. We had planned on going in to visit with immediate family while Brett was going to be there for the ShowIt UNITED conference, but after Brett’s dear grandma, Gigi, passed, we were there for the memorial activities too. On Saturday, a lot of family came into […]

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 […]

iPhone Dump with Words

You may have noticed (which I KNOW some of you have as I’ve caught some slack for it), that I haven’t been posting as frequently as normal. Well, a few weeks ago I started to feel super overwhelmed with the smallest things in life. Grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning, volunteering, feeding Burke, blogging, etc, etc….I was […]

Wild Turkey

Well, I decided that I wasn’t going to be defeated by the crazy Joann shoppers, and headed back out today.  This time I had Betty with me, and I wasn’t putting myself under so much pressure.  Plus, as I had learned yesterday morning….the fabric I really wanted wasn’t really on sale until today anyways.  🙂 […]

So, we made it to Sacramento last night to spend the holiday weekend with Brett’s extended family. We took off a little bit after 5pm from SB, and decided to stop for dinner last night at The Habit in SLO. We took in Burke’s seat as it’s SO much easier than trying to eat with […]
