For The Love of the Game

One of my absolute favorite things about this time of year is football. I am a HUGE NFL fan, and spend my entire Sunday watching the games. I don't have a particular team, I just love a good action packed game. I had the opportunity Thursday evening to watch my nephew play some highschool ball. I went bold and actually went down on the sidelines to take some shots. Of course my camera couldn't compete with the flurry of L lenses on the field, but whatever. I still enjoyed myself. Here are a few from the game.

Sweetberry Farms


Where the heck have I been hiding?! I've been lost somewhere between insanity and chaos the last couple of weeks. Just this week I finished a semester of nursing school, started my daughter in daycare, and get this...

Drumroll please...

I went and had a chemical acid peel done on my face. Let's just say my face has an oh so shiny syran wrap look to it. Yes...I will share this with you. Just give me time to realize this is only temporary, and I will only shed like a snake for 7-10 days. When the fresh face beneath this catastrophe emerges, I will be sure and share.

So anyway, we took a trip out to the beautiful Marble Falls Texas. There is a nice lil pumpkin patch called Sweetberry Farms. Here are some of the pics:

This cracks me up. For about 20 minutes she would pick the pumpkins up off the ground, transfer them to a bail of hay...and then turn around and put them back on the ground.

Here she is realizing this was an infinite mindless task:

That's all for now. Just wanted to say I miss my little blogging community, and hope to be posting more often. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Punky Butt

The day has already come and gone, despite my desperate attempts to hault or simply just slow time. Holidays and birthdays are always so depressing around here. To me, these days are not about presents and gorging yourself with cake. It's about being around the ones you love and care for the most. And when the ones you love are miles and miles away, your left with an emptiness. She's too young to understand the meaning of all this, but it sure does tear my heart in two. Here are a few pictures of our small gathering...

Of course our extended family did make it...

And by extended, I mean the Easter Bunny and a parade of Yo Gabba Gabba friends.

Daddy had been teaching her how to blow out a candle...

And she blows it out like a lil' champ.

Of course we had to let her blow the candle out another 6 times before she was satisfied.

I love you. And years from now when we celebrate your 16th, your 21st, your 47th birthday, you will always be my little Punky Butt.
