First Bites

Drew is 4 months old and after months of mama milk and a little formula, he got to try his first bite of food.  He wasn't very interested at first, but before long was diving in for the spoon full!  He wants to eat it, but just doesn't know what to do with it once it's in his mouth.  Each bite comes out and gets put back in an average of 4 times before we give up and try another bite.

Thanks, Thatcher, for the bib!!!

Record Snow

So, I have lived in Texas my whole life, and in north Texas for the past 15 years.  I have NEVER seen anything like this before.  Maybe that's because we officially got 12.5 inches of snow in a 24 hour period, the most in 111 years!  It started around 3am on Thursday and continued ALL day long.  Yes, we went to school and work on Thursday, but hardly anyone worked on Friday!

Instead, this is what we did!

Peek a boo
The girls didn't last very long in the cold, but they did have some fun in the snow.


Drew slept through most of the fun, but did wake up in time to get his picture made with the snowman.

So, here are a few pics of things around the house.  May give some perspective on how much there really was.

Even after our very amateur attempt at shoveling, we still couldn't get the car up the driveway.
Late Friday morning we ventured out.  Things were getting a little chilly in our house after the electricity had been off for 5 hours and counting!  Still lots of snow, but the roads were clear.

Snowy Day!

Well, not exactly a snow day like no school, but definitely a snowy day!  It's beautiful, and nice that it's not least yet.  Too bad after these pictures, Ashtyn wanted to wash her boots!  Whose kid is she anyway????

Just for Grins

Just a few pictures of every day playing around.  Drew is doing really good in his exersaucer now!

For Grandpa

Ashtyn has started getting herself dressed.  After her bath, she pulled her pants on.  I told her she didn't really need to pull them up so high.  Her response, "I just want to be like my Grandpa."
