Let's Rodeo 2010

On Feb 17th, we all ventured down to the annual San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo.  We've only ever taken the kids around the grounds, so this was a special treat to get to go to the rodeo and concert.  If only we knew (haha)....the kids had a super time during the rodeo- Sydnee officially wants to be a barrel racer, and Brian wants to "ride one of those sheep" to get a HUGE trophy and cool belt buckle.  Our tickets included the Alan Jackson concert after the rodeo, BUT that didn't even get started until about 930, so for kids who usually go to bed at 7, that was VERY late.  And it showed! Lexie fell asleep on me (THAT IS SO RARE- she was SO tired!), and Sydnee was practically bawling in her seat.  I think it was pretty fun for them, but next time we will stick to the Saturday matinee rodeos and concerts.  Oh- they LOVED dressing in their "cowboy" clothes too.  Here's to you- DAD and MOM- these kids belong on your ranch!! 

LEXIE is 1!!!

Wow- this I cannot believe! my baby girl is 1! Technically, her birthday was on Saturday, Feb.27th, but I'm just now getting around to blogging about it.  We had a great family/friend party over at our house, with a whole ladybug theme going on.  Ladybug games- everyone made a ladybug to "pin on the leaf", a super bug search in the yard, guessing how many "bugs" were in the jar-,  special ladybug tutu outfit, CAKE, etc!  Black, white and red balloons, streamers, and decor adorned the house....and the cake! Oh the cake!  I spent days making this awesome ladybug cake for my girl!! I've never, ever worked with fondant before, and I was so nervous.  I have to say, though, it turned out amazing!! I was so happy with the result--and I was actually sad to see it cut into.   

Here's some stats on our little ladybug::
She walks and runs all over the place
slowly growing in some hair ;)
loves to throw a ball and chase after it
loves watermelon, broccoli, spaghetti, 
green beans, corn, noodles, and CANDY!
says "mama" and "dada"
loves playing with other kids
likes to growl and gasp (haha)

I will post height and weight stats when I get them.  This girl brings so much joy to our home! I don't know how we lived without her!  She is always so happy and funny!
