Saying Hello to One Grandma & Goodbye to Another.

Great Grandpa and the kids

Four Generations

A little Jenga...

This past week, by grandmother passed away. She and my grandpa had been married for 9 years. This was the Nana that my kids knew and loved. Their last living great grandma. In saying goodbye to Nana, they were able to say hello to my mom. She lives in California and hasn't ever met Rachel or Hayden. She has been to Texas a couple of times in the past 10 years, but since we moved around with the Air Force, we were not here when she came to visit. The kids really enjoyed meeting her. We hope it's not another 10 years before we see her again.
I am thankful yet again that God has brought us back to Texas. My grandpa had a shadow all day today. Hayden rode with him to the church and followed him around everywhere. I think it was comforting to my grandpa to have him close. It was very sweet to see Hayden love on him during this difficult time.


Kate sang at the game!

Homecoming parade...


Texas High School Football... This past Friday was homecoming and the high school celebrates for the entire week. Kate dressed up on movie day. Can you guess her movie? "Flashdance" No, she hasn't seen it, but it was easy to come up with a costume. Thursday night was the parade, powder puff game and bonfire and then Friday night was Homecoming! We bought Kate her first mum. The choir sang the National Anthem at the game. It was a night of family fun and even better since we won. Oh, the purple hair was for homecoming; although, it has not come all the way out with washing like it says.
