A Busy Sunday

May 31, 2010

After church there was a young family picnic and Landry had more fun just playing in the church gym.  She was just watching the older girls do the hula hoop and going to try it herself.  She ended up putting it around her waist and then just spinning in circles.  It was pretty cute to watch. 

Landry came with me to my open house that afternoon and was such a good girl!  I had her coloring on some “home” sheets since she was my assistant for the afternoon.

She had a tough job and had to relax for awhile


Sidewalk Chalk

May 31, 2010

I have to say I have had more fun than Landry with our sidewalk chalk.  Who ever came up with it was brillant!  Jared got into it as well.  Landry was ready to move onto something else but Jared and I were still drawing away.

She is trying to put the clip back in her hair

Wedding Showers For Emily

May 30, 2010

Since I’m behind on my posts I can already say Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Lindley.  Kevin and Emily tied the knot May 22nd in Jamaica.  Emily had two showers in Midland and I was so excited to get to be there for both.  A few Midland friends hosted the evening shower for Kevin and Emily and we had a great time catching up and telling old stories.

Now onto the evening couple shower.  Here is the couple of the date Kevin and Emily.

Of course there was group pictures.  Click the link below to get more pics from the evening (more…)

Park Time In Midland

May 20, 2010

I was home for Emily’s wedding shower (pictures soon) and we took some time to enjoy the pretty weather and a morning at the park.

Of course Landry wasn’t looking at the camera

She would rather push someone than ride herself

I had fun climbing around myself

Emily’s Bachelorette Party

May 19, 2010

One my dearest friends, Emily,  is getting married Saturday in Jamaica.  We had her bachelorette party a few weeks ago at a lake house outside Austin.  Although the weather was overcast we still had a great time just relaxing and celebrating Emily’s upcoming Big Day!  Here are some pics from her opening her lingerie gifts! 

I was introduced to these yummy jalapeno cheetos and although I don’t like really hot things I like to eat just a few to get my fix.  This was a gift for Emily and we all got to share it.

Emily got some great things!  She is going to be one hot momma!

Watching Her Daddy Work

May 13, 2010

Jared was putting in a flower bed across the street and Landry just wanted to hang with him, so she found herself a good chair on top of the mulch to watch her daddy work.  She’s a cutie!!!

Enjoying A Beautiful Day

May 13, 2010

It was too pretty a few Saturdays ago not to enjoy being outside.  We played at the park, enjoyed a Sonic drink, took a walk, and finally hung out in the front yard where Landry was watering  everything in sight.

Well I got most of her head in the picture.  We were about to go down the slide together.

And now water the dirt

She is enjoying the ice out of MY drink…..where is her drink???

Big Turkeys Down

May 12, 2010

Turkey season is here and yes Jared is taking advantage of it.  He got two turkeys in the same night and now we have wild turkey we are going to fry up sometime…..I’ve never done that so that will be new for me.  Landry liked seeing the turkeys but wasn’t so sure about getting too close to them. 


May 12, 2010

Jared promised Landry he would get her a kite and when he didn’t bring one home the first night she remembered and we were off to get one at the Dollar store.  Jared did so good at flying the kite and we had fun watching him run up and down the street trying to keep it in the sky.  Mean while the kite hit several trees and a few roofs but Landry enjoyed it.  Later that evening after she went to bed the kite went into the trash.  $1.00 kite can only last really one day really.

Wow Daddy that is high

WOW!!!!…..she thought it was pretty cool…points for daddy

Finally to Easter Sunday

May 11, 2010

We had a great Easter!  Jared’s parents came in and went to church with us and then I cooked at our house so we could let Landry go look for some eggs.  She would find an egg and open it up to see what good candy she got before finding another one.  Just last night I was reading her the Easter story from one of her books and she asked where the eggs were in the story.  We tried for a family picture but with the crazy wind and Landry being too anxious to look for eggs it just didn’t happen.  Hopefully a family pic soon.

They were all looking at a kite in the sky.

She was off without her basket at first…..who needs a basket anyway…..just eat candy and keep going.
