A few weeks ago, my loves weren't feeling well.  I did what any good mother does and took advantage of their stillness by capturing some photos.  They are so amazing beautiful. :)

an evening at the farm


This afternoon Chris wanted to take a drive to the farm (his grandparents have some land about 30 minutes from us).  It's refreshing to get out in the country and kick around the dirt.  Of course, I saw this as a perfect opportunity to get some new photos of the babies.  Always makes perfect.  ;)  Hope you enjoy my country bumpkins.

Park fun!

Today we headed to the park for some fun.  The weather has been beyond gorgeous and we lived it up today.  This is the first time I'm using this 'storyboard' thing.  Not so sure I'm liking it just yet.  :)

Easy Canvas Prints

Y'all know how excited I am when I take great photos of my kiddos.  Well, I am thrilled that I just received one of those great pics on canvas from Easy Canvas Prints. 
Check out these awesome canvas photos!
I was contacted by this great company to print one of my photos on canvas in exchange for a product review.  
I was so excited because not only do I love canvases, I found a new company to use that was fast at printing & delivering, has an easy to use website, and amazing quality!

 Pictures on canvas look amazing and am so happy with this one.

  Now, please excuse my house.  
I am in the middle of redecorating/painting/and everything in between. 
I have placed it in several locations, just testing out different nooks and rooms in the house. 
Decorating is not my forte, although I do love to move things around quite a bit.  Anyone wanna come help me?  :)
As soon as I get all my walls completed, I know I will find the perfect spot to hang this canvas of my beautiful baby girl. 

(This is in front of my dining room window...not gonna leave it there, but loved how angelic it looked.) 

So, if you're looking for a fast, affordable, and simple way to have a beautiful canvas(es) made of your favorite prints, I'd highly suggest Easy Canvas Prints. I will definitely be using them again in the very 
near future! :)

On Saturday, we began a new journey of this thing called parenthood.  We are now officially 'soccer parents'.  And love it.  It was such a blast to watch Coy & friends/cousins play their first ever game.  Of course it's through the YMCA and just for fun.  He did great and had an amazing time doing it  Here are a few pics of the first big game.  I guess we can officially kiss our weekends goodbye.  He he, just kidding.  I guess not just yet...:)

 Cydney was so proud of big brother...
 T, Coy, Ryder, and Chase

 He thought being goalie was "time out".  :)

End of Summer

So I know I was going to update more over the past few months.  And it didn't happen.  Oh well.  I'm back, again.

We had a fantastic summer and survived the scorching heat here in Texas.  It was beyond H-O-T.  I think we set a record for hottest few months ever.  Any who, we had fun while doing that.  We swam a bunch, shopped some, played most, and napped quite a bit. 

In July, Cydney turned TWO and me, THIRTY!  We had a backyard family barbecue and had a great time.  Chris and I flew the Las Vegas for a quick getaway the next day.  It was amazingly relaxing. 

Coy had a minor surgery done mid August and he recovered fantastically.  His speech is improving daily.  The Lord is so good.  My boy is so handsome. 

We decided back in July to take our house off the market.  I was praying for direction and overwhelmed with all the decisions.  The Lord placed it on our hearts that we were to stay put.  I think I secretly wanted that, but was trying to be obedient.  But then realized it wasn't suppose to happen.  Make sense?  Okay good.  :)  We are so happy we stayed.  I am so thankful for His direction during that stressful time. 

Both kiddos started MDO last week.  They both LOVE it beyond words.  I had such mixed emotions on the first couple days, but I have to admit the time to myself is nice.  Okay, it is REALLY nice. Nothing better than babies loving their time at school and momma getting all my errands run kid free.  The consumers at H-E-B and Target can all thank me later.  :)

Here are some pics from the past few months.  I haven't picked the camera up much this summer nor have I edited those that I did take.  My computer got low on disc space and I just let it sit for awhile.  But I'm excited to get back to snapping.  :)  Hope it was a blessed summer for all!  Happy Fall & Football! 

Yes, he has on a pink life jacket.  It was one of two we had.  Cousin Colby got the blue one.  :)
First fish at Nana & Papa's beach house!

These aren't good photos of the first day of school...ugh.  But whatever, you get the picture.  :)

 Me being silly. I've always wanted to do that.

March for Babies 2011

This is being written and posted almost two months late, but I wanted to share about our successful March for Babies 2011.  For the 3rd year in a row, we were one of the top Houston Family teams!  We raised over $15,000...simply amazing.  We are ever so grateful and humbled by this. 

 Coy with one of his favorite (okay, our favorite) NICU Primary nurses, Mariama.  We love her!

 Coy with Kyle, another amazing micropreemie 23 week survivor!

Thanks to the hard work of my in-laws, they hosted a very successful BBQ chicken fundraiser.  I don't have pictures of this day since I forgot my camera, but it was lots of fun.  We are so appreciative of all their hard work and dedication to this special cause.  We hope that one day every baby is born healthy!  :)
