1st trip to PK this summer!

We loaded up the WHOLE family (12 total) and headed to Possum Kingdom lake for 3 days on June 8th. This is by far my favorite place to get away during the summer. The water is beautiful and its so quiet out there!

 Haley on the boat....I don't ever get very many pictures of Haley at the lake because she is always under the water! LOL

I posted these 2 pictures of the boys to show how different they are from last year. The boys love going to Sandy Beach and playing in the sand. This is by far our favorite spot to park the boats and hang out for a while.  The boys are so much braver this year...We had to keep their life jackets on because they would just start walking out in the lake towards us. They didn't do that last year. They stayed on the shore and played in the sand.

Not sure why I don't have any pictures of the guys or my grandmother. I know we took some but they are probably on someone else's phone.

Ranger Game

My sister, Elise, Graduated with her LVN from Nursing school in May...instead of having a party or celebration for her she wanted to go a Rangers game. So we all loaded up one Saturday and went to a game. We went to a 2:00 game so it was pretty hot but we had a great time. This is a the view from our seats. (Mom said next time we will get seats in the shade!)
The kids started running around so we decided to take them to the Kids Zone play area for a while. They all got Texas tattoos...the boys were so proud!

Since Amber lives in Denton now...she met up with us and went to the game also. Willie was a little out numbered by all the girls but he was a good driver for us. :)
Here is a picture an old lady took of us with my phone...obviously she was shaking...LOL
Me and my little man before the game!

Spring Ballet Recital

I know I am so behind on blogging...hoping to catch it up this week.
In June, Haley had her Spring ballet recital for Patty Harper Dance Studio. The theme was calendar year.  Haley was a Summer girl and an Irish Dancer (St. Patricks day). She was really excited to be in 2 dances this time. It wasn't as stressful as I thought it would be. Everyone did an amazing was a great show!

Family Pictures 2012

We haven't had professional family pictures done since Parker was 3 months old so I figured it was time to get some done. Time just seems to fly by and the idea is always in the back of my mind but it never moves up on the list of things to do. I had our sweet friend Jane take them again. She did such a great job with the kids last time and she is very reasonable so she was the first person to pop in my head when I wanted to get these done. Here are just a few of the 200 pictures she took of us...LOL

I know I haven't posted in like forever but I will try to get better....

GOD BLESS, Jennifer

Sweet Daisy Jane photo shoot

For Christmas my sisters and I decided we would get some pictures done of us girls and the grand kids for mom for Christmas. Its getting so hard to figure out what to get our parents for Christmas these days. This is one thing we knew she would love!....and she did!
A few months ago Elise had Jane take some pictures of her and Carter and she expressed interest in taking some pictures of the boys together so we decided she would be perfect for doing our pictures. We have known Jane's sister for several years and they have a very sweet family. Jane especially amazes me with her talent, her faith, and she so much fun to be around. If you haven't heard of her before please check out her website! or find her on facebook. She is very reasonable! Also if you are planning a wedding or get together...she just recently bought the Willow Creek Chapel and has some amazing plans for the place.
Anyways...We took tons of pictures but here are some of my favorites.

Once Upon a Christmas Eve

Haley was a penguin again this year for her Christmas ballet recital...every year this is a busy, crazy, tired week for our family but worth all of it to see Haley up on stage dancing her little heart out.

After the recital...

We have made it a family tradition on Willie's side of the family to all have a Christmas party/dinner after the recital at Lytle Land and Cattle. We rent out the party room, have full buffet waiting on use, and bring funny white elephant gifts to exchange Chinese Christmas style. It's a lot of fun and a good stress reliever from the week we all just went through getting reaDy for the recital.
Here is a picture of our little family at the Christmas party.
