Sophia at the Jelly Belly Factory


Here's Sophia at the Jelly Belly Factory. We are celebrating James' Birthday over a few days, going to some different things he wanted to see. He wouldn't volunteer for this picture, he was too busy sitting in Sophia's stroller eating Jelly Bellys.

James' Gift from Grandma




Here's James in his Ironman mask opening up his huge set of Space Police Legos. He said "I have been wanting these for YEARS!!!! " Thank you Grandma!!

A few recent pics....




















My "reuse" project - a skirt I could not part with (being too big now) and turned it into a dress for Sophia. At this point, she is fascinated by things that come from my sewing machine, so while she still appreciates it, I am going to sew for her whenever possible.


James and Sophia - her last day of gymnastics at Randolph.
Mommy and James' LEGO table creation - (hacked up IKEA table).

Sophia loving the "new"/"old" Jeep shirt that she got from Auntie Sara.

This is what happens when you leave Daddy home alone.... Just Daddy and Sophia


The new bike


James' knees were almost hitting the handlebars on CJ's old bike, and we finally convinced him that it was time for a new bike, he insists on keeping the old one (very sentimental) but loves the new Buzz Lightyear bike and Rocket helmet.


Little sissy keeping busy - running around outside, just having fun, her favorite thing to do, besides taking care of her dogs and dolls.








Oktoberfest Parade

just waiting for the parade to start

Day Out with Thomas




Pictures from our Day Out with Thomas 2009 (Oct 9th)

James' School Art Work

Artwork from early on this year in school, they all told the teacher why God made them special and they were to illustrate it, and write their name and at the top she wrote their exact words of why God made them special.

Funny, funny Sophia

just snatched James' clean underwear from the laundry basket and so proud of putting it on herself!!!
no time to fix the hair, must ride, James' shoes - that's all I need!!


Oops more September highlights

South Padre Island and Corpus Christi Beach, a little too cool to swim, but a fun time in the sand.
