I chopped off 11 inches to donate to locks of love :)


And of course little bit had to get a hair cut too.

June 13, 2012 | My Mother’s Day Gift

Idina Menzel was in town at Fair Park Music Hall performing her Barefoot Live concert.  Unbelievable!  I love her, she is so incredibly talented.  I first saw her in the movie Rent when she played Maureen, then she was the lead in WICKED as the wicked witch and recently she has appeared on Glee as Rachel’s mom.

June 9, 2012 | Switch-a-Roo

Aunt Cory took Emmalee for the afternoon and over night.


Shelby spent the night with me. It was great for me to spend time with her since she has grown into a beautiful teenager and young woman.  We went shopping, made home-made pizza, watched tv and of course talked into the wee hours.  It was priceless!

June 8, 2012 | Date Night

Bren and I went to see MIB III at the AMC Cinema Suites which is the best way to see a movie! There are only 20 people in the theater, you get your own leather recliner and the food and drinks come straight to your seat.

June 7, 2012 | Meeting Jeremiah

Dan and Jessica are one of the sweetest couples in our small group from church. Due to an unfortunate string of events Jessica’s sister is unable to care for her son, Jeremiah. Thankfully the courts granted Jessica and Dan custody of an amazing little boy. So early June they recently adopted him and brought him back to Texas. :o ) After he had been in town for a week or two, the home group girls went over to meet him. Emma tagged along and the two of them hit it off…I think it was the matching glow-in-the dark white hair. I love that she is under the covers and he is on top; keeping the love in check all ready.

June 6, 2012 | Our Dancing Queen

Emmalee will find any reflective surface in this house to watch herself dance…including the refrigerator!

Later that night she put on a dance show and taught us that she is always soaking things up, even if we don’t thing she’s paying attention. A couple nights before we watched the Glee prom episode while she was playing and thought she wasn’t paying a bit of attention. Until she repeated the exact moves first to an Irish song Bren was listening to and then to the same song…we are in trouble :o )

June 5, 2012 | Emmalee Started Swimming Lessons

Emma took swimming lessons with a neighbor friend Tuesday – Friday for two weeks. It’s truly incredible how quick kids learn and adapt to new things. By the end of the first week, Emma was a pro; holding her breathe and swimming long distances under the water, jumping in and then swimming to us and even diving for things on the bottom of the pool. The little fish continues to impress us.

June 2, 2012 | Birthday Celebration Kid Style

Saturday morning when daddy got home we went to OPH for breakfast, across the highway to IKEA for some light shopping, stopped at the ballpark to see if we could get tickets to the Rough Riders game but realized just how hot it was while standing in line and how not fun a baseball game in the sun would be so we passed and went home for a family nap.

When we woke up we headed back over to Frisco and partied at Gattitown. We ate tons of pizza and played lots of games. Emmalee tired her hand and bowling.  (See the efforts below)  On the way home that night I looked over at Brendan and remarked that this is what it feels like to celebrate our adult birthday kid style – we spend mine at the zoo and his at an entertainment arcade.  Love it.

June 1, 2012 | Happy Birthday to Daddy

After work, Emmalee and I went to the store and bought daddy his favorite dessert combo, red velvet cake and Blue Bells red velvet ice cream. We took it up to the station and got to spend some time with the birthday boy.

June 1, 2012 | Mommy Lesson

We read the potty training book about Ashley and Emmalee said the word poopoo so funny it made me laugh to the point of not being able to breath which of course peaked Emma’s attention. She keeps saying it to try and get me to laugh again but half of what was so funny was her not trying to be funny. The lesson I learned is to pick a better moment to find something hilarious instead of the word poopoo which is awesome to have her say randomly.

What the…

One morning on the way to the Mrs. Shanna’s house, I couldn’t get my phone to do something and said “What the” and then I hear this little voice from the back seat say “Heck”.  I turned around and asked “what did you just say?” and her reply was “what the heck”.  I have no idea where she picked that up!  I had to explain that we don’t say that…where do kids get this stuff?

What the
