Park Time

The weather was just too beautiful this morning to not enjoy some time at our favorite park.

Then during naptime today Nick I got more boxes out of the attic so we could start packing up the speakers and sewing machines. I guess we really are moving.

Violet’s First Birthday

Yesterday we were honored to be able to celebrate Violet’s first birthday. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. She is by far the HAPPIEST baby I have ever known. She smiles all the time. She is Eva’s little sister and I can only imagine the trouble they will get into when they are older. Here are some pictures of the party. (Which was a great excuse to get the big girls together, the mom’s, and the dad’s! (Nick was doing a night flight so no party for him!)

Here is Madeline headed into the party.

O’Fallon House

The builder has started making some of our requested changes on our house. It is so exciting to see the progress and crazy to imagine that we will be there in 1 month! I have been trying to finish up some sewing projects so I can pack up the machines. It sure would help if Nick and I could agree on a baby name so “hotdog” would have some treats.  Here are the pictures of the house.

Closing off the loft to make an office/craft room. Madeline’s room is the door on the right.


The view down the hall from Madeline’s room. That is the guest room at the end of the hall. And Hotdog’s room to the left of the guest room.


Expanding the basement bathroom to add a shower.


Where the new shower will go and hopefully some walls. :)


A big thank you to Bob LaRue the best realtor in the world for checking on things and sending me updated pictures!

Yee Haw Rodeo

It is Rodeo time in Altus. This has to be one of our favorite Altus things. Grandpa Ross & Grandma Jenna even came for the fun (and to pick up our garage sale items).

Here is Grandpa & Madeline all ready for the Rodeo.

Grandma Jenna joined the fun. (I think I might have learned where I get my love of theme dressing.)

Food always makes events more fun.

Rodeo 017

There was lots of card playing, play dough smooshing, Madeline chasing, and bubble blowing. We even got to watch a fabulous parade with lots of candy.

I forgot the camera at home!
