Handsome boy

I just wanted to post some pictures of my beautiful baby boy.. who is not looking so babyish anymore...

Bow Mania!!

One of Katharines favorite things to do is put bows in her hair. Poor girl doesnt really have enough hair for me to put pigtails in, but she asks anyway and I dont protest.
After 20 minutes of her fidgeting and me trying to get the perfect center part(lol) she lost interest and just wanted to put all the bows in her hair. That was fine with me.. much easier .. Its like pulling.. well hair.. when trying to do pigtails in her thin, baby fine hair.
Here is the finished product.

Girls are so fun!!

Snow Video!

Stop laughing.. its a big deal to us Texans..
Here is a video of our grand snowfall yesterday.. turn the volume down to avoid my sickly voice..

Early Christmas wishes

Yesterday was a day to remember, for Houston at least. Some call it a Miracle, some say Hell must have frozen over, some have called it Freaky, I call it a blessing. Here in Houston we do not see snow that often. In fact I have lived here for 10 years and it has snowed twice. Once on Jakobs first Christmas eve in 2004 and again yesterday. Now, we would be asking to much for it to stick so it was no surprise when the flakes hit the warm ground, dissolved and turned to liquid. But it was a wondrous site to see them falling from the sky.

I took a few pictures and by a few I mean hundreds.. Hey snow is a big deal here.. so all of you northerners that are laughing at us.. its ok.. we enjoy our dusting of snow.. while you guys are digging yourselves out ;)

Twilight fanatic

I am sure many of you have heard of the recent phenomenon book series Twilight. It rivals Harry Potter in its popularity. The fourth book in the series, Breaking Dawn sold 1.3 million copies in the first 24 hours of its release. So naturally I had to see what the buzz was about.
When the movie was about to come out and I had seen interviews upon interviews and blogs upon blogs about the series I let my curiosity get the best of me and purchased the first book. Now being an avid reader whose shelves are littered with non fiction books I was a little skeptical. But it was in me, fiction. Growing up I was a big fan of V.C Andrews and Anne Rice. My favorite Author growing up was R.L. Stine. So I knew I could do it.

So I set out to read the first book of the series while my kids and my hubby were at the farm. Yes that's right a whole weekend to myself..It was glorious.

So I began the book and was hooked instantly. Twilight is obviously written for teenagers so it is an easy read.

Its about an impossible love and I don't think there is a girl out there that has read it who didn't fall in love with Edward Cullen, the main Character.
Yes its a book about Vampires but as with most books that is just the outer layer. It is really a beautiful love story.
Fast forward to now and I have read all 4 books and have seen the movie once( I plan on seeing it again next week ;))

And I still cant get enough. I am hopelessly addicted.

My good friend is going to send me the Harry Potter series for Christmas so that I can start reading them. I have never read the Potter books and have only seen the first movie. It will be interesting for me, lover of non fiction books to delve into the world of wizards. I am excited!

So if you haven't already go read Stephanie Meyers, Twilight series. Maybe you, like me, will find a renewed love for Fiction.

One of our Favorite artist played at a convention that was held at our church. They had a free concert one night and we sat front row!! We even took the kiddos and for the most part they did ok. It was 3 hours long and WAAAAY past their bedtimes.

I am still here..

I realize its been a while since I posted and though I wish I had a better excuse than I have all I can offer is that I just haven't gotten around to posting.
That being said I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving day, filled with family and food. I know I did.

I realize the look of the blog needs to be changed as it is no longer pumpkin season but I am waiting to see Santa tomorrow, well not me but the kids so that I can add the picture.
Don't worry I ll get it all together sooner or later.
We do have the house decorated or kinda, the decorations are up on the inside but the boxes are still decorating the floor and the outside is a work in progress. Dustin puts up a little more each night. He is such a trooper.

We have a busy weekend ahead of us as usual so I ll have lots to post about in the coming days. But I will leave you with pictures in the next post.
I hope you guys have a terrific Day..
