Bringing Down The Neighborhood

July 27, 2010

Last month our AC went OUT and in between figuring out if we could fix our old unit and looking into a new unit we spent about a week and half (or longer) without AC…..and yes it was over 100 degrees almost everyday.  We are so spoiled with cool air.  I actually got used to 80 degrees in the house and didn’t think it was that bad.  To get it to 80 we put in some window units.  One in our bedroom and one in Landry’s.  Several neighbors asked about it and we told them we were just bringing the values down in the neighborhood.

Cool air never felt so good!

Landry was pumped about the new addition in her room


Random Videos

July 27, 2010

I try to get Landry in the moment of her reading or talking on the phone and never seem to get the best moments.  Here are a couple of videos from a few months ago. 

Here she is sitting on the chair talking in her own language and watching a little Barney too.

This one she was reading a book on the couch and then I started the video which distracted her some.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame…

July 26, 2010

We had a Scott Allison Real Estate night out at the Colt’s Baseball Game.  It was a fun time!  Landry at first wasn’t too crazy about Casey the mascot but as the night went on we followed him everywhere.  She wanted to see the horsey….and asked why does he have shoes on???

Olivia had no problem hugging Casey the Colt.  You can also see the small wooden bat they gave the kids as we got there.  What a great toy for a 2 yr. old……ha!  That disappeared real quick in our house.

Who’s responsible for watching the girls???

Sweet Girls!

Backyard Pool Time

July 25, 2010

We get the pool out all the time and Landry loves playing in it!  It’s easy entertainment!  As you already know she doesn’t love wearing clothes and that goes for her bathing suit too.  In the backyard she will start out with it on but normally by the end of the swim time she is naked again.  Hopefully I can convince her not to take it off in public.

And there goes the suit….

She isn’t a huge fan of me taking videos of her.  She either wants to see herself  right away or she tells me “no cheese” mommy.  Meaning please stop taking pictures.

If Landry could walk around naked all day long she would.  This girl strips down all the time!  She’s not a huge fan of wearing shoes or clothes for that matter and as soon as she has to go the bathroom I normally find her bottoms off somewhere else.  She is our little streaker!

This is a position I find her often in.  Maybe she is reading, maybe watching tv, or talking on the phone.  Just a perfect fit I guess.

A Carley Hand Me Down

July 12, 2010

I can’t tell you how much I love hand me downs.  We don’t have many at all, but appreciate them so much when we do.  Kim had given me a few of Carley’s clothes when she was little.  Here is one of those dresses.  So several years later it still looks good!  Thanks Carley!

I think she is working on her casual model posing in these pictures

Our 24 hr. get away to Amistad

July 9, 2010

Jared and I were planning on staying at Lake Amistad for a couple days but after having what we thought was motor trouble we headed back after just 24 hrs.  Even though we were gone for just a little bit it was so wonderful!  For me not much beats hanging out on a boat especially when you aren’t surrounded by a lot of other boats.  I think we saw 2-3 boats the whole time and instead watched deer, turtles sun bathing, ducks, these small birds building mud nests on the rocks, and of course fish!!!!  It is always so peaceful and while Jared was fishing I got started on a new book and finished up several magazines.  I’m thankful my hubby likes to have me as his fishing buddy.  I love being there with him and enjoy the trips as much as he does.

First catch of the trip

And continued catching pretty good ones the next day

We saw lots of turtles enjoying the sun

No I didn’t catch this fish…..but I did a great job at holding it

The BIG catch of the trip…..we searched all over for the scale but Jared said it was 6-8 lbs. which to me I translate that to a newborn baby…..Nice!

Well not the best pic but hey I thought we were going to have a another day to work on one good shot of us

Some Fun Family Pics!

July 7, 2010

After we got home from Steve and Ricci’s wedding reception we took some fun pictures at the house.

We were supposed to do a mean face but apparently Landry didn’t follow directions

Jared had just shaved his head for the summer so Jake and him are sporting the same cut.

You always need a close up too

Landry hanging out at Livie’s house

July 6, 2010

Landry really enjoys playing at Olivia’s house.  She has so many cool toys that Landry always has lots of fun!  Haylie got some cute pics of the girls after their bath.

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Lindley

One of my best friends, Emily Boyd, just got married in May in Jamaica.  I wasn’t able to attend the wedding but have gotten some great pictures from their trip.  Emily is so special to me and I wanted to share a picture of her and Kevin on their wedding day.  She is drop dead gorgeous and what a backdrop with the ocean in the background.  I love you Emily and I’m so excited for you and Kevin!  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Lindley!

Here they are getting married in Austin….or signing all the legal papers before they headed to Jamaica.

Isn’t she just stunning!!!!!! Kevin looks great too!!! 🙂
