1st annual toilet bowl classic football tourney...loads of fun and a tad bit of competitiveness in this group!! team camo won...go daniel!!. not sure he'll make it down any slopes next week in breckenridge with all the soreness that I know will ensue. we even get to house the trophy until next year when the 2nd annual will take place...too bad it's an actual toilet lid!!
Let's try this again...a pic a day??? Ok...a better goal for me might be Project 52 (or however many weeks there are in a year??) with a pic a week:)
So...day 1 pic: How we roll on New Year's Eve...home in our pjs, just us. Candlelit dinner of salmon, asparagus and saffron rice, which my family DEVOURED...the salmon was Parks' request. We even had kiddie champagne (diet 7 up) for the boys to toast to the new year...notice the margarita glasses...we don't have plastic champagne ones:)
Fun night and Daniel and I even made it until midnight...I think its been a few years since we've accomplished that! We did have champagne on hand, but didn't bother to pop it since we were already in bed and watching The Nanny...how lame are we!?!?
Gramma and Pop came for dinner tonight...big fun for the boys. Gramma never shows up empty handed...fudge pops for all. Check out the coffee filters to catch the drips...man, that woman is crafty! Parks ran foot races, pretended to be a bandit (he's into being a bad guy these days...hope it doesn't stick!), and they both hit homeruns. Have I bragged on my homerun hitter? Parks can smack it clear over the fence...Papa Bear is sure proud:)
Off to Fairfield tomorrow, then to LBJ for the rest of the weekend. Hopefully I'll return with pics of the boys with their east TX cousins and all of us relaxing at Horseshoe Bay:)
Woke to bad news today...my mom's cousin, Charlotte passed away. We loved going to Fairfield where she lived for visits. I took Parks a couple of times and he LOVED it. Jimmy would take him out on the tractor and around to look at the cows...all of those fun, country things that a city boy misses out on. These are pics from last few summers. Davis never got to go...I'm sorry about that. We'll miss her and our trips to Fairfield...
Last night Daniel built the boys a cave out of pillows. They both immediately wanted to curl up inside with books and a flashlight. This supported my recent argument with my husband that every kid needs a nook...I feel a project coming on:)
