Our first long Trip

In October at the beginning of the month, we went to Walt Disney World in Florida. We spent the best week of our lives there and would do it again and again. This was the boys' first plane trip and our first plane ride with children.

I left my wallet at home and did not realize this until we went through security. I almost did not make it on the plane, but had some help and answered some important questions.

We stayed at the Caribbean beach resort and loved the pool, the bus system and the room. It was perfect for our family of five. We went to Hollywood studios the first day we arrived and the boys had a blast. I wish I had more time to write, but now I will work work work to pay off the trip.

Life Keeps rollin'

This summer was a slowwwww one, but we have been so busy, I have not taken any photos. Since my photography and design have been keeping me busy, it has been difficult to keep up. Here are some photos from recent session I did with the boys.
My online journal of memories with the boys
Jacob can say: thank you, ungha = mickey, more, babba, bubba
He started school and is having a rough time when I drop him off, been 2 weeks and he cries still, makes my heart ache.

Jack is growing so fast, went on the potty- 2 times, but no more progress there, not pushing that. He still has his paci and 2 1/2 years and is trying to get rid of his nap- yikes! He is learning colors, ABCs, he sits down more now and reads books along with watching educational shows on tv.

James is 4 now, doing well in school, not napping at ALL. He loves to draw still and loves his toads. We captured toads in out back yard in May and we still have them 4 months later.

Bye for now!

A long summer

This has been a looooooong summer. We have been out of school since the middle of May and do not return until the first of September. We have been keeping busy. It is so much fun because this year, all three boys are very active and play play play. Jack got his first black eye, James almost drown in a bucket of ice water and we just went to the dentist and have no cavities- yeah! We have been witnessing some crazy fighting, Jacob has decided he is a biter- yikes, he has bitten jack several times. Jacob is also scared of thunder, just like our little dog, Cleatus. James is now 4, Jack is 2 and a half (no, not potty training yet-ugh!) and Jacob is almost 17 months.

Our 4th not so much

Well Jack was sick for over a week with a bad stomach virus, we think he has lost over 5 lbs now. I had 2 photo shoots and we still managed to have some fun with friends, did not see family, but perhaps next year. There was a fun parade with the neighborhood, which I missed. James had fun driving his jeep all decked out. I got back from my session and picked up poor sick Jack and took him home to rest. Nothing makes me more depressed than seeing my son all sickly and not feeling good at all. I did not take too many photos, I wanted a pic of the entire fam in our shirts, but did not happen. I will try to do better, I promise!

Been out for a while

Oh Boy- it's going to be a long summer. I barely have time to keep up with anything these days. Think I am ready for the beach. What's been going on with us- Jacob is talking- saying:
baba, mama, dada, ball, ribbit.
He is down to one nap a day now. Keeping up with his bubbas, he loves the pool, swinging and playing outside. He is attached to his snack trap and carries it everywhere he goes.

We caught two toads and they are now in the back yard in a 10 gallon tank. Jack is napping one day and the next, no nap- ugh! He and James are fighting alot these days over who pours the water from the hose into the baby pool. Meltdown central for James who wakes up in a cranky mood and argues over what he will wear that day. We had out school program, soccer has been great, the Blast team is great and we love our coach Stacey. James started swimming classes at Aquakids on Saturdays and loves it, thanks Gram! I made it to the neighborhood pools two times this year with all three kiddos and had only one near drowning. It is hard to find the time to balance house chores, taking care of the boys, design work and photography, but I try my best.

Lastly, the above pics are from school, the Spring Program. jack was so cute, he did all of the dances and sang. James sang a song about a tutti ta ta- so cute! They both love school, we have to wait before Jacob starts though.

now, on to the pics!

James' 4th Birthday Party

Our first born is almost four years old! Tomorrow, May 12, he will turn 4. I am so proud of the boy he has become. It is hard to believe he came into this world at 7:27 am, four years ago weighing only 8 lbs and 11 oz. Now he is such a sweet and smart boy who can write his own name, count to 20, write almost any letter in the alphabet and he has so much more to learn.

Saturday, we had a party for him at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas. The grandparents came and almost 20 of his friends were there to run around like crazy with him. He had an airplane cake and airplane cupcakes. He got so many great things for his Birthday. After 2 hours of pure fun with purple balloons and yummy cake, we headed home to open presents and head to bed.

Sunday, (Mother's Day) we went to the Rainforest Cafe where James got to see Cha-Cha and he was soooo excited. We also went to the Disney Store to find some "Bolt" stuff and Build a Bear so James could pick out a frog and call it his own. He had a blast. DH got him a purple Cha-Cha shirt and a purple TCU hat- which he loved the best. Of all his presents, he liked seeing Cha-Cha and the frog you put in water that grow huge!
