Now that Van is 15 years old...

We can all agree I should delete this blog. I am the worst at updating it nowadays.
Ok, on to my long overdue Van post. Van was born on September 21 at 5:05pm. He weighed in at 6 pounds 4 ounces and was 19 inches long.

This was the day we took him home from the hospital.
This was 10 minutes ago. Homeboy always looks so annoyed. He's just like his mama!
We could not be happier with our new addition!

Impatiently waiting

In 5 days (or less) our family will have a tiny new addition! I'll post pictures as soon as possible, until favorite little football player...

August 2010

We have been so busy this summer, I will be SO glad when school starts! This mama likes a routine and we have not had one for what feels like forever. We have approx 5 weeks before Mr. Van gets here. We are so ready to meet him! I can't wait to see Brady and Austin's reactions to their little brother.
Here are some pics of the last few weeks....
My sisters and Mackenzie gave me a beautiful baby shower brunch. We got everything we could have needed and more.
Poor Van....
Mack is far too creative for her own good.....

Pool time with fatty, I mean Cate. She couldn't get any cuter!

I finally painted my kitchen. Three bathrooms and the boys bedroom's left to go before I am finished painting every wall in this house.

That concludes my weak blog entry. Stay tuned for football pics! Our first game is next Saturday!

Van's bedroom......

I can't believe I actually created something.......with Kaci's help of course

Now all we need is our little man to get here! 7 weeks to go!

A new chapter

That's all I really have to say about that.

My lifelong friend Mallary has opened an online clothing boutique. Yay for Mal!
Here you can find some really cute dresses, tops, bottoms, and accessories. This is boutique clothing people and not boutique prices!
Go check out their website. They have this system called Closet Points that is really neat. The more money you spend the more money you get off your future purchases.
I am so proud of you Mallary (Alvin too of course)! I hope this takes off and becomes what you want it to be. I also hope you get rich and can support me. :)
Anyone who reads this can use this coupon code KPB10 to get 10% off of your purchase!

I got your cake boss right here.....

This is what happens when you watch a Cake Boss marathon and then hurry to bake a cake for yourself. Maybe next time I'll let it cool off before stacking and icing it. Or maybe not....

It sure was ugly but it tasted like yellow cake heaven.

June has come and gone and I am still wondering where it went! We have been so busy this month so blogging has not been an option. Here are some pictures of the things we have particular order of course.

Brady's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese

They forced me to do this one.

Brady's first airplane ride.....he fell asleep before take off and woke up as we were landing.

Mr. and Mrs. Brown!

Moving right along

Well I FINALLY got to meet Addison Monroe! I made it just before her one week mark so I feel proud of myself! Brady came with me and he didn't seem the least bit jealous that I was holding a little glow worm in my arms for an hour or so. She is a doll and I cannot wait for Van to get here so he can meet his future wife.

Before we went to see Addie, Brady had splash day at school. Only one more day of school and he is out for the summer.

It is so hot outside! I love me some summer but I am a sweating machine these days.
Coming up this weekend we have Mallary and Alvin's big day! I am looking forward to a weekend in Austin with my husband. Mallary if you read my blog get ready for our duet!
It's going to be out of this world.

May is wrapping up nicely

Last Thursday Mom's office gals threw her a little girls night out before her big wedding day. She gets married this Friday. This was most of the group that showed up. Guadalajara is so damn good.
Saturday Brady played his last baseball game. Saturday afternoon the team had a party at Tin Roof BBQ where the kids were given trophies and other goodies. Brady was SO proud of his trophy.

There are lots of exciting things coming up! I'm trying to make it out the door with my camera every time I leave so I can become a better blogger!

Mal's bachelorette weekend

Friday Kaci and I headed out to Lake Limestone in Groesbeck, TX. We had a very relaxing weekend. Lots of food, booze, (diet cokes and water in my case) and lingerie to last a long time! Thank goodness for me there were two other prego's there so I wasn't alone in my sobriety.

It's hard to believe Mal will be Mrs. Brown in only a couple of weeks. *tear*

It's a boy!

Before I knew that the ultrasound had even started Jeff was laughing out loud. I turned my head to look at the screen and there it was, his little penis right in front of us! So far all looks well and right on track!

One more day......

What will it be?? Boy? Girl??? Alien??

Tick tock.....

This past weekend we threw Mallary a wedding shower. It was at The Bernhardt Winery in Plantersville, TX and it was really a very beautiful place. It was a nice shower and Mal got a lot of nice things.

Meme took Brady and I to the zoo a few weeks ago and this was Brady's favorite part. I love that big smile! He loved all of the animals but the fake one that moved up and down was the prize winner!

Jeff and I find out what we are having in 10 days. 10 loooooooooooong days. I am ready to see it's little organs and to make sure all is well and that the baby is healthy. I am also dying to get started on shopping. Hopefully with a move in our future I'll get to have a nursery to decorate. That and all the 5 million other little things needed for a baby. We are so excited and cannot wait for him/her to be here!
Until then, I hope everyone has a nice week and weekend!

Picture post for Penny

You'd think that working from home I would have more time to play around and keep my blog updated. I can't seem to get much done really but that's another post for another day.
So many things have happened since last post, baseball has started for both boys, our family is growing, Easter, and our Gulf Shores vacation. I'll just let these few pictures do the talking. I'll do my best to update throughout the summer; there will be a lot going on.
