Spring Break 2013

We had a FUN spring break!  This year we decided to save money and stay at home.  We invited Evan's sister Rachel and her daughter Aurora to come down and spend time with us.  Here is a breakdown of all of the fun we had! 

Monday- I was really sick all day so we just vegged and watched Vampire Diaries seasons on Netflix. Here is a picture of Evan and Rylee entertaining me while I lay on the couch.

Tuesday- I felt much better so Rylee and I headed over to the MAC for toddler time.  Then we ran errands and got ready for Rachel and Aurora's arrival!  Rachel and I went to Hobby Lobby and Little Giggles that evening.
Wednesday- Rachel and I took the girls out to see downtown Waxahachie.  We went to Pete and Repete consignment shop and ate at this fun pub place.  Here is Rylee standing outside one of the shops with her new toy car.  Wednesday night we ate at ElFenix for dinner.

Thursday- We went downtown to Fair Park to the Children's Aquarium.  It was so fun!  I got a season pass so we will be going alot.  Then we headed over to Cafe Express for lunch and grabbed some slices of cake and pie at Breadwinners for dessert.  Thursday night we hung out at the house and watched movies.

Friday- Rachel and I headed out to Cedar Hill to take the girls shopping.  We ate at Max & Cheese for lunch, stopped for frozen yogurt, and had a blast playing at the park after we got home.
Saturday- Rachel watched the girls while Evan and I went to run errands and do some fixing to our back patio area.  We got a new table and layed pavers to extend it.  All week the girls had been trying to play in the water bowl.  That afternoon we finally gave in, stripped them down, and let them go to town.  You can see from this picture how excited they were.  Saturday night, one of the young women from church babysat the girls while we went to see OZ at the Studio Movie Grill
Sunday- Rachel and Aurora left around 9:30am.  We went to church where Evan got to partake in the blessing of Baby Ben Herzberg.  Afterward we met my family at Cotton Patch to celebrate Nanny's birthday as you can see here.  We came home and vegged before starting back at work on Monday.

How does your garden grow?

We have officially lived in our house for 3 years.  In 3 years the front "garden" has looked awful.  The lady that lived there before us had a beautiful garden that I killed with neglect.  We decided it was time to do something.  Our former co-worker from Brown has a husband that does landscaping so we called him up and he did a great job!  I think I might eventually plant pretty colored flowers lining the garden when I have time to tend to it.  It was so much fun going out there over spring break to water it and also water the pretty pansies Evan got me.  Yay!



28th Birthday

I had a great 28th Birthday!  It started on Saturday the 2nd with Evan taking me to Roadhouse for dinner while my sister watched Rylee.  Unknown to me, they were putting together a suprise party at my house.  We went to Target after dinner and then came home to find my sister, her husband, Heather, Jake, their kids, and Amanda C. at my house.  We had a wonderful costco cake and snacks.  Then we watched Twilight that I got for my birthday.  Sunday we played at the park with Rylee and went to Chuy's for dinner with my family.  On my actual birthday on Monday, I went to work and we had Johnny Carino's for lunch.  Evan and Rylee came to eat with me.  Monday night, Johnnie came over and we ordered pizza and she made me a yummy strawberry cake.  It was a wonderful birthday because I have so many wonderful people in my life!

Our little girl.....

Rylee is growing up so fast!!!!!  One second she is a baby and the next she is our little girl.  We love spending time with her.  She has her moments of toddler tantrums but for the most part she is a wonderful little sweetie!

It's the Holiday Season

This year it was my family's turn to have Christmas.  It was alot of fun and what added to the wonderful holiday spirit was the SNOW.  Yes, we had a white Christmas here in Dallas.  Rylee was very spoiled this Christmas and I can only see her getting more spoiled as she gets older.  We had alot of fun with my family and the day after Christmas we made our way up to Stillwater to visit Evan's family for the holidays.  We love getting so spend time up there and so does Rylee.  So much fun!

Christmas Card 2012

Christmas Parties and Such....

This Christmas season is turning out to be a busy one.  I am signed up for 5 cookie exchanges/dessert parties.  We just went to our ward Christmas party which was a blast!  It was a "whoville" theme and everyone did such a great job.  Rylee is at an age where she just runs everywhere so as you can tell from the picture, trying to catch her long enough to get a picture can be difficult.  We still have some parties to go to and fun to be had. Rylee is so cute this year with all of the stuff going on.  I am excited to see as she grows and develops the things she is able to do.
