Phone post

Lately, I feel like I really don't have anything very interesting to post...I am going to try to keep my camera out on the kitchen counter, so I can capture more pics, I feel like I have really been slacking in that department. These pics were taken with my blackberry, it is much more handy than the mom camera.

I just love sleeping pictures, they always look so sweet. For the last couple of weeks, we have been having trouble with Avery wanting to sleep with us. As a baby, she NEVER slept with us, but recently, I have been letting her "snuggle" with me. I guess I feel guilty about being crazy busy with school, and if Brian is out of town, I have been letting her sleep with me. However, this may have backfired on me :(

Last Friday, I took Avery to her first 3D movie, The Lion King. She has seen the movie a couple of times, so I thought she would love it in 3D. She did pretty good about 1/2 the time, and watched the other 1/2 without the glasses, oh well :)

And here is a super short video, she is trying to show off her muscles.

Happy Birthday Jace and Skeet!

Yesterday, two of my friends had babies on the same day!

Welcome to the world Skeet Ryland, 8lbs 14oz

and Jace Carter, 7lbs 6oz

Congratulations Smith and Reagan Families!

So long summer!

For Labor Day, we usually head out to Lake Livingston, but due to the recent drought and fires, we decided to stay close to the house and just hang out by the pool. This summer has been a little different than most, so I am looking forward to the fall season!


We also took the girls for a zoo day this past Friday. It was perfect weather for it, and no crowds :) We got there pretty early so we could see the elephants have their breakfast and baths.

This child was not the least bit afraid of all these animals, and ran up to pet them right away!

Now lets bring on some fall weather! I am busting out the pumpkins!

For the past couple of days, our area has been hit with some major and quite devastating wildfires. Due to this horrible heat and drought, wildfires have been spreading throughout Waller, Montgomery, and Grimes counties. However, our family has been incredibly blessed to be on the east of all the fires. I know we have all heard horrible stories of flooding, hurricanes, and fire that have claimed people's homes, but it is different when it is occuring just so close to home. It is quite a surreal view to see so much smoke in the distance on 1488. Brian is pretty sure that his deer lease has experienced some damage, but I am so thankful we have not to had evacuate our home.

Here is a video one of my friends posted in FB.

God bless all of the firefighters who have been battling this thing nonstop. I have never been so proud of my cousin, Ryan :). And my prayers go out to all those who have already lost their homes, or are still in danger of loosing theirs.

7 months & 4 weeks...

Until graduation...but who's counting?

Anyways, last week, I started back to school...and next week I will begin clinicals twice a week again. This semester I get to see patients at a nearby birthing center and a fertility clinic, so it should be pretty interesting. I am beginning to see the end in sight, but still so much to do. Probably around December I will begin my preceptorship. I have a feeling this fall is going to fly by!

And because I am a nerd, I have to post this picture I took with my phone....isn't it just beautiful? I certainly didn't begin this program with this as a goal in mind, it just sort of happened, and now I don't want to mess it up...
