My Baby Girl is One!

I really can't believe it has been a whole year since Miss Clare arrived in our arms. She is just the sweetest, most lovable baby and I can't imagine life without her.

Happy Birthday to Clare!


What a mess!

This is how we opened presents. Clare fell asleep nursing in my lap, so the twins "helped" open gifts.

Something I never thought I would say...

"Jake, get the pretzel out of the Playstation!"

Now, the pretzel is sitting in the phone cradle on top of the Playstation. Apparently it needs to be charged.

Fun with Friends

A couple of weeks ago we met up with my friend Nora and her kids at a nearby park. Everyone had fun, and the weather was perfect!

Jake was off having fun with John John the whole time, so I didn't really get any of him. He had a blast though!

Easter 2009

We had a fun Easter this year. I really felt like I got a lot out of lent this year, and that really made for a special Easter. The kids seemed to enjoy Easter, although their behavior in Mass left something to be desired. We're working on it, that's all I can say.

Bluebonnets 2009

This is my attempt at bluebonnet pics for this year. I think they are cute. Not perfect, but plenty good for the brief amount of time we actually had cooperating kiddos. The fact that there was a playground (see last 2 pics) in view made stillness quite unattractive to the little ones. As soon as we got to the bluebonnet field G&J wanted to take off for the playground. I tried to make the torture..., errr, I mean picture-taking, as brief as possible.

















Here are last year's. I can't believe how much everyone has grown!

Rodeo 2009

Several weeks ago we took a brief trip down to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The kids had a good time and were quite sad to leave.

Arriving




















Yes, we had Clare with us. Somehow she didn't make it in the pictures though. Probably because she was in my backpack carrier (she is in the first photo, you just can't see her).
