Festival of Lights

Meg, Katelin and I went to the Moody Gardens Festival of lights tonight and as you can see Katelin had a blast. They had music playing through the walk and I think she was dancing to her own music the whole way. Can you believe how cute she is!!

White Thanksgiving

Meg, Katelin and I went to Hobbs, NM over Thanksgiving. Much to our surprise, we woke up to a white Thanksgiving!! As you can see, Katelin loved her first snow experience. She actually attempted to throw snowballs with her cousins.

Don't you just love her red little nose!!

Haleigh, Zane, Valerie, Katelin, and Isabel loving the snow.

Zane loved his icicle sword.

Child Labor

It was a beautiful day in G today, so I decided to wash my truck. When I was filling up the bucket, Katelin loved the bubbles, so she decided to help me with the rag. After she saw me using the mit, she wanted it. See how it covers her whole arm. It was so cute.
Please dont turn me in for child labor!!

Trick or Treat

Meg and I took K to a few of our friend's houses on Halloween. She loved randomly walking in the street and loved her pumpkin bucket...especially after there was candy in it!!! She was so cute in her monkey outfit. Every once in a while you would randomly hear her say "oo-oo ee-ee" and act like a monkey. I wonder who taught her that?? Here are some pics of our friends Paul, Brittney and Hannah Rath, Rhonda Kurtz, and Chad, Catherine and Maddox Conner.

It's a....

Baby Brother!!!

Meg had her ultrasound today and this is what we found. Pretty hard to miss, but yeah, it's a boy. All other parts are in functioning order as well. It was so good to see him.
He's a pretty active little booger, so we may be in for a crazy ride.
Please continue to pray that Meg feels great and baby BOY!!! continues to develop normally. We have been so blessed thus far and appreciate everyone's excitement.

We're having a BOY!!! (yes, I'm a little excited about that:)

Fall Fest

We took Katelin to her first real Fall Fest last Thurs (well, she went last year but how much can you do at 6mo's?). She was a monkey, both literally and figuratively. She had a blast!! Her favorite thing was the "fun house" which was just the slide covered in material, but she loved it anyways. She fished for a duck, raced a bat against a ghost (monkey against cowgirl) and won!! I think we are going to take her to a select few houses for trick or treating. Stay tuned to see.

Dad's Valve

My dad had to have his aortic valve replaced a couple of weeks ago. The surgery went great and he is now back home feeling better than before the surgery. Here are some pics of us the day before his surgery hanging out with fam. Katelin and Keslyn sure do love their grandad!!

It was so awesome to see the support of our family as they came from across the state to sit with us in the waiting room. Mema, Pa, Sandra (dad's sis), Charlie (dad's bro), Herb (mom's bro). My cousin Brian even came in from San Antonio after a long day at work to hang out with us.
It was amazing to see and feel the love and support of what seemed like the whole town of La Grange in the waiting room. There were about 18-20 of us taking up the waiting room, waiting for hours. I appreciate everone that prayed for my dad and mom as they went through this. It truly was a blessing to be around everyone during that stressful waiting time.


Don't you julst love spaghetti!! Katelin obviously does. I just could not resist catching her with this face. I think she will appreciate it later.


Katelin Meg and I went to the Galveston Schlitterbahn about a month ago and had an awesome time. We went at about 10am and stayed until 4pm. Katelin loved the entire time. She slid down the frog's red tongue several times and we were sooo proud of her to be able to clinb the stairs and do it by herself!! She loved sitting on my belly and riding the rapids on the lazy river. I think we wore her out... she did not last one minuteafter we put her in the car.

Patutis 2

That's right, Katelin's is going to be a big sister!!! Meg is 17 weeks along, starting to starting to show and feel the baby move. Patutis 2 is due for arrival March 23, 2008.

Beach Babes

A couple of weeks ago Meg and I took Katelin to the beach. This is the first time she has been since being able to walk. She used to hate even getting close to the water and would lift her legs up when you try to sit her down. This time was much more fun. She loved the waves and dancing around in the sand. I don't think she likes how the water or sand tastes, though!! The beach babes are pretty cute, huh?!?

On Sunday, August 19, my friend Erika and I completed our first triathlon (Ironbabe sprint). Also becoming an "ironbabe" was my friend Tara. It was a 300 yd swim, 11 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run. We all finished strong. There were a few unsteady moments on the bike for me, but overall I came out without any new bruises. : ) Kevin was an awesome supporter and also entertained Katelin through the race.

We're ready to swim!

Katelin is taking a rest. : )

Mission accomplished!

Like Mother Like Daughter

While Katelin was at Mammother's last week, she got her first pair of running shoes. You can tell by the huge Goose-Egg on her forehead that she takes after her mom when it comes to the running part!! (Just kidding babe : )

Pray for Meg as Katelin and I cheer mommy on at her first "Iron Babe" this weekend.

Welcome to our new blog! We thought this would be a fun way to share our pictures and lives with family and friends. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy!
Katelin celebrated her first birthday at her grandparents' house in Round Rock. We grilled hamburgers and had cake and homemade ice cream.

Katelin's one! (April 2007)
We went to the Grand Canyon for our vacation this year. We stayed in Sedona, Arizona. The mule ride was great fun! We suggest everyone seeing the Grand Canyon at least once in a lifetime.
