Well, we didn't win a chance to go to Australia for 6 months, but that's ok. Once we saw who they picked for the Top 50, we knew it was the wrong gig for us---almost all their selections were late teen/early 20's single wild folk. Needless to say, we didn't fit the bill.
But we've had plenty of little adventures of our own around here. There have been tea parties on a blanket in the living room, complete with milk in tiny tea cups, Oreos, and blueberry coffee cake.
Getting to wash the tiny dishes herself was a treat for Emma.
We've had the construction of various buildings, such as this lovely cabin and stable. It must be comfy, because all our horses seem to be called to a nap.
We've spent time playing outside in our yard, and also meeting up with a group of friends from MOPS at a park. (Emma is her daddy's daughter, by the way. She shot up and over the top of this climbing wall like nothing, before I even realized she was on it.)
We visited a new batch of Siberian Huskies near my parents' house in Boerne. Emma, who lives for dogs, remarked on the way over there that, "Mommy, I can barely breathe because the butterflies in my tummy are so excited!" (Sorry, Grandfather. I didn't mean to chop you out of the picture.)
On the baby front, our little guy is rambunctious and growing steadily, and I already feel large as a barge at only 26 weeks. This picture was taken about two weeks ago, and I know I've grown since then.
And we also celebrated my incredible hubby's birthday last weekend with special dinners, flan, and peach cobbler. Happy birthday, Garfield! You're the best husband and Daddy in the world! Here's a video of Elizabeth explaining Daddy's birthday dessert.
Thanks for checking back in!
