Luv at Gate 8

June 2, Dallas Luv Field...Gate 8. I will never forget that day, when I met my Prince Charming, my tall dark and handsome stranger, my soul mate and love of my life. My Superman! Six years later, and for the first time, we were able to pass by that gate again as we made our way to Albuquerque for Thanksgiving. Boy, how things have changed. What an amazing six years it has been!

Thanksgiving Perfomance

Isabella, your Daddy and I had a blast watching your very first performance. We were so excited to see you on stage and couldn't wait to hear you sing all those little songs you sing for us at home, like "Jesus Loves Me". We were so excited that we actually got there with plenty of time to pick the perfect seats...the front pew! Maybe that was a rookie mistake because you could hardly concentrate with us in the front row. You were so excited to show us your turkey shirt and the necklace that you had made! "Mommy, look at my necklace!" you shouted right in the middle of a song! Priceless! What a precious memory! We are so proud of you!

We make a better team!

These photos were taken at Zilker Park just hours before Mark and I headed to watch our team embarrass themselves once again. Our girls are playing better than the Longhorns! They found a ball that didn't belong to us and had a blast learning the game.

We're All Good with the Bathtub

We finally seem to be all good with the bathtub. For the past year it seems like there's always some little girl in our house that hates baths. For the first 6 months of her life, Victoria hated baths. And then when she finally began to tolerate them, Isabella would scream bloody murder if we tried to give her a bath without using the baby tub. When she finally learned to like the big bathtub, Victoria had her issues...and so on. After some short-lived drama from Isabella recently, we are finally all happy with bathtime! The new rubber duckies that cousins Benjamin and Nicolas gave them for Halloween seem to have put some fun back into bathing. Thank you! Phew!

A Cold, Rainy, Windy Day

Today was definitely the coldest day so far. Jackets were pulled out and put on. Hats and hoods were slipped on. And out we went as soon as we could find a moment when the raindrops stopped. I have a love-hate relationship with cold weather. I hate being cold, but I love jackets, hats, sweaters, sipping on hot chocolate, kissing cold fingers, warming up cold toes, oatmeal in the mornings, soup for lunch, and the smell of fires being lit. I could do without all the runny noses though.

A Fun Halloween!

The past week has been fun as we prepared for Halloween. I thought I'd share some photos of what the girls were up to.

On Thursday we all took part in getting Isabella ready for a fun day at school. She was excited to wear her Abby Cadabby costume and take part in her class's Halloween party!

On Friday, we decorated pumpkins.

And Sunday we had a great time in our old 'hood with some old friends. We all enjoyed some pizza and then we headed on home to trick-or-treat in our cul-de-sac. We have such awesome neighbors! Isabella was loving the whole concept of receiving free candy in her bucket and Victoria was perfectly content in my arms sucking on a Twizzler as we walked from house to house. Then the fun part was passing out candy and seeing all the other costumes.
