Texas Football Game

Wade's Grampy D (Clay's stepdad Ken) travels with work and is often in Houston. Which Wade LOVES!! One day last September Ken, who played football for Texas in college, got tickets to the Texas vs. Rice football game here in Houston. He was here with work and he flew Hunter (Clay's youngest brother) in for the game. Wade got to go to the game with the boys and had a blast.

Catching up!!

I know it has been WAY too long since I updated this thing, so here I go in an attempt to try to catch you all up to speed on what has happened in the last 8 months. This may take me a few posts. haha.

Here are a few pictures from August 2010.......
Lane hang'n out on mom and dad's bed
We tried feeding Lane some rice did not go so well.
Lane started sleeping in his own bed!!!!
Wade was wrapping up the summer that month. Just having a blast being a big brother.
Lane (at 5 months old in Aug. '10) spent a lot of time in his exersaucer.
Hanging out before bed.
Lane....ready for church.
Such a happy baby!!
We also found a house in Aug. '10 that would be perfect for us. So we decided to put in an offer and put our house on the market. Here is a picture of the new house.

Wade Turns 3

This summer Wade turned 3. It is so hard to believe that he is 3 years old. He is so full of energy and loves so much to hang out with his friends. He loves to dress up so this year we decided to have a Cowboy party. A friend of mine is starting up her birthday party planning business for little boy's birthday parties so I thought I would let her run the show for Wade's party. Little did she know that my little guy LOVES his friends and wanted all of them there. Well 18 kids came. It was CHAOS!! I did my best to just take pictures and keep a smile on my face. I am really starting to realize that things just don't go as planned when you have kids. One of these days I will be one of those go with the flow moms. hahahaha. (I couldn't have done it without my best friends Lisha and Carin, they are always there to know when I am loosing my mind and just take over for me. LOVE THEM!!)
Here are some of the pictures from the party.

Wade is ready for the party!!!

Lane the little Cowboy!!


Getting his cowboy clothes on. YeeHaw!

Some of our friends at the party.
Wade and Preston playing "pow pow"

We had a stick horse race

We had a bean bag toss

We did a few crafts. (notice we are inside now, we had to move all the tables indoors due to lightning. 18 kids and their parents all in my house, good times)
We did the chicken dance (notice we are outdoors again)
We tied up some parents.
And of coarse, we sang Happy Birthday!
Wade having a piece of cake with his girlfriend, Avery. He used to call her Avery HoneyHam, but sadly he now calls her by her real last name. The HoneyHam was so cute while it lasted.
And finally, the cupcakes (from scratch) that I slaved over the night before the party. Clay and my sister seemed to think they had too much vanilla. Well I thought they were great so guess who ate them ALL???
It was very chaotic with the soggy yard, the lightning, and the large number of people, but we really did have a blast at the Cowboy party. Wade is still talking about it.

Summer Days

We are right smack dab in the middle of summer here. So far we have had a pretty good time. There isn't a whole lot you can do with a 3 month old baby, but we figure it out. We hope to make more summer time memories in the next few weeks.

This was at a Stroller Strides event
For Memorial Day we went camping in Rockport with our good friends The Edwards. Here are Wade, Major, and Juliana taking a boat ride.
This is how Lane has to spend most of his summer days. He'll be running around with his big brother next summer.
We take lots of walks around the neighborhood. (and a few runs here and there)
We found a great new play center near by. Wade loved it, and so did I since it is inside with air conditioning. There are slides, dress up areas, a grocery store, a snack area, sand box, and a maze. This place is really awesome.
We took a trip up to Mansfield in June. We love to visit our favorite Mexican restaurants while we are there. Yummy!!
Wade and Avery dancing at Memaw and Pepaw's house.
They had so much fun playing in the baby pool.
Wade and Avery putting on a show at my sister's house.
We also do a lot of playgroups. This one was finger painting. Lane and his bud McKenna taking a nap while the big kids paint.
A day at Chuck E Cheeses with Daddy

Family Photos

When Lane was born I was determined to send out announcements telling everyone about his birth. I never got around to sending any out for Wade, and I have always felt bad about that. So I had one of my sorority sisters (who is a local photographer) come over and take some pictures for us. I thought since she was here, might as well do some family photos too. I love that she came out to our house to do them. If anyone around the Houston area needs a photographer, check out her website,
The announcement :)
