So, there are a few things I have done lately that are worthy of a blog update:
1. I went to the breaking dawn release party at the barnes and noble here with a bunch of girlfriends. It was the night before we moved. I had a BLAST! notice the piano in the background... ya, that's mine. The Brann's are just kind enough to babysit it for the next little while in their home. sniff sniff. Even though it looks amazing in their house, i will see it again in mine... someday when we get another house... ps, i think that was my favorite of all the books. fun light reading. :)
2. We went down to Houston last weekend. Joe's dad was in a very serious horse riding accident, so, rather than going solo with the kids, joe accompanied me so we could go visit him (and of course see his bros). I have been looking for a house for the last few months. Joe's dad has been building his dream home for i dont even know how long. here is just one pic so you can get the idea... ok, honestly, how beautiful is that? you can see their dock on the lake. they will also have a pool out there too. I AM SO EXCITED!!! it is the mega house for fun (complete with a bunk room and play room with a stage for all the grandkids)...

We also were able to go to sydney's birthday party at chuckycheese. It was fun to see all the cousins. Of course the kids spent most of the weekend in Jeff's pool, and I spent most of the weekend lounging around. We had the first fantasy draft of the season there as well. I AM READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!

3. Tuesday, I took the kids to go sleepover at my mom's house. I feel like it has been FOREVER since I've seen my family... so sad to have moved away... ANYWAYS, the kids had a blast and then yesterday, we woke up and took the kids to the mall to ride the carousel and to pierce charity's (and sarah's) ears!!! she was quite the drama queen, but the tears stopped as quickly as they started, and she is the CUTEST little girl ever. I thought i got a pic with both girls, but i will just have to get it from cherry... 4. We bought Aaron his football equipment... he is getting excited for his season to start. i am very nervous for him to be in tackle, but i think it will be ok.

you've been having a fun summer! However, if you come within a 30 mile radius of my house again, and don't call me.... (: I'd love to see you! Doesn't look like we're going to make it to DFW before school starts (since that's on Monday) My girls have been chronically sick this summer, I'm ready for good health!

so how far away is Houston from your mom? At least you guys are still in the same state...that's a big improvement right there ;) Keep us posted on Joe's dad. Hope everything turns out all right. And let us know when his big fancy house is done...we'd love to come visit ;)

I liked Breaking Dawn too. It was a fast read...but Twilight was still my favorite. I am glad you updated your blog. It's fun to see what has been happening to your family. Glad you sold your house. :)
