13 Years Ago Today

Brian and I met. My sorority and Brian's Fraternity had a Mardi Gras Exchange and the rest is history. Not really because we both went out with other people first and we didn't start dating for a couple of months. I have a picture of that night but it is in the armoire next to Landree's room and she is way too restless tonight for me to find it and scan it up there. I do not bother sleeping babies, especially that child. I'll have to get it tomorrow and put it on here. We even have a shirt from that night and we joke that not every married couple has a picture from the night they met and a t-shirt to commerate the event.

Trust me we didn't know that 13 years from the day we would be laughing in San Antonio during supper with our oldest daughter who is complaining about the prospect of having to eat Enchalupaladas (she confused enchiladas and chalupas) at school this week if I forget to remind her to order a yogurt plate on Wednesday, again; and the youngest daughter who loves spaghetti so much that she picked up her bowl to lick the remaining sauce out of it.

Days 35 & 36

Day 35
Today was the 100th day of school and Western Wear Day. The San Antonio Rodeo lasts for 3 weeks or so and every Wednesday the kids get to wear Western clothes.

Day 36
They were headed to the Daddy/Daughter Dinner. Peyton informed me that she wanted to wear her Christmas Dress and asked me if Daddy was wearing nice clothes or blue jeans. She then called and left him a message asking him if he would change clothes when he got home. I talked her down to a sundress and sandals- gotta love San Antonio in the winter. She disagreed with Daddy's choice of clothes and picked something new for him. He didn't shave but did put on cologne. They had pizza, cake and played bingo. She was thrilled. Landree and I went to McDonalds and got her new favorite- Apple Pie- Egg, Milk, and Peanut Free

Project 365

Okay so I've been doing Project 365 and realized I haven't put any on the blog. Basically Project 365 is where you take a picture every day of Year 2009- hence 365 pictures. I've been taking pictures and starting to scrapbook them. I doubt I'll go back and post the first 30 on here but I am going to start with day 31.

Day 31: Best Friends
Brian was working on weeding the backyard and the girls were oustide playing so I of course followed them around with a camera. I was so excited when I pulled this picture of the camera. She still misses Buddy but she does LOVE her Charlie Bear.
Day 32: Fire Hydrant
Charlie decided to use the girl's mailbox in the playroom as a Fire Hydrant. Of course everyone thinks it is hilarious. Everyone who didn't have to clean it up that is.
Day 33: I sthick
Landree is sick and keeps telling me that. She looks so pitiful but even with the red cheeks, didn't have much of a fever.
Day 34: Momma Chicken
Peyton was supposed to be a chicken for tonight's Kindergarten performance. The recommendation was to take a yellow shirt and put feathers on it. Well I started looking a week and a half ago and no yellow feathers. After seeing her costume, Peyton declared, "Mom, we should have just bought one from school." Not an option ungrateful. Then she exclaimed, "I'm going to have a heart attack because now I'm the Momma Chicken because I'm white not yellow like the baby chicks." Yeah whatever, just hold still so I don't stick you with a pin.

I know it's one picture but I can't stick to that on a special day. Here are the felt/sandal chicken feet.
Here is Daddy Chicken cleaning off her face one more time before walking to school
Here they are leaving me because I woke up with an eye almost swollen shut and a fat lip and covered in hives for the second day in a row (I'm all medicated up and no I have no idea what caused it). Daddy has camera in hand and I'm ready for them to get back so I can see it.
