Need I say more?

Monday Funday!

Woo-Hoo, it's Monday!

What a great weekend we had. First of all, the weather has been absolutely amazing the last couple of weekends, and it looks like we're in for another when Saturday and Sunday come around. Saturday morning was spent with family at Cracker Barrell. We celebrated our SIL's 31st birthday. (Can you believe we hang out with people that old?) Just kidding, Kelli. You know we love you! The rest of the day was spent lounging around the house and watching a little football. CRG really likes to watch football. He likes to yell "touchdown" and chant "De-fense, De-fense". Saturday evening was spent with good company as a friend from our Bible study went with me to a local high school football game. Katy HS 21 - Taylor HS 10. Once again, perfect weather!

As previously mentioned, CRG received an annual family pass to the zoo. After finding out that the Houston Zoo was holding "Zoo Boo" we couldn't wait to take the boys. The zoo had a few stations to trick-or-treat, a pumpkin patch, and a few other activities for the kids. CRG got some great practice for Halloween. I'll let the pictures do the talking....

Thanks for playing. We'd love to hear a fun moment you had this weekend.

How can you not love Clay's Restaurant

A few weeks ago we celebrated Katy's Aunt K's 60th Birthday! Happy Birthday Aunt K...I hope you had a great time!

Here are a few pictures from Clay's. CRG loved seeing all the animals...as long as he didn't get too close!

Monday Funday!

Welcome to Monday Funday! This is our effort to take your case of the "mundays" and turn it into a Fun-day!

What a great weekend we had. Saturday was CRG's 2nd Birthday party. We couldn't have asked for better weather. All the kids had a great time jumping in the moonwalk, playing basketball, eating, and knocking the candy out of the pinata! Thank you to everyone who was able to make it!

Cake, cupcakes, and Oreo cookie balls Katy made.

On Sunday, we took CRG to his first concert, Imagination Movers LIVE from the Idea Warehouse! Although CRG was a bit overwhelmed with all the lights and music he had a great time. He even got the courage to hold hands with his girlfriend, Shelby!

CRG is 2 today!!!

Wow, it's hard to imagine that just two years ago it was just me and Katy. Now, on CRG's 2nd birthday we also have a 2 1/2 month old. I love my family.

Happy Birthday CRG. We love you!

The Aquarium

Katy's Aunt K was gracious enough to take us do the Downtown Aquarium recently. CRG was so excited when we told him we were taking him to see the fish. He had a great time and really loved the "choo choo train"!

Right after BJG warned his momma about the attacking tiger, Katy turned around and gave it a swift kick to the face and stunned it. This was the shot just before. CRG wasn't so sure about the ferris wheel (that thing is pretty big), but he still enjoyed it. I really like this picture of Katy and CRG with skyline in the background.
CRG was not going to take his eyes off the white tigers! He wanted to know where they were and what they were doing at all times!

Monday Funday!

Today we start something new. In an effort to be a more regular blogger we implement Monday Funday. I'll be sharing a fun or favorite moment from the weekend before. Please feel free to comment with your favorite moment of your weekend.

Have a great week!

October 9-11, 2009:

We took the morning to head to Weimar, TX. Sound exciting so far? It really was a nice time. We took CRG and BJG to visit their Great-Great-Grandmother!! Yes, I said Great-Great-Grandmother. BJG had never met her and it had been a while since CRG has seen her. My Great Grandmother is now 98 and lives in a nursing home in Weimar. Unfortunately, we don't get out enough to see her. She looked really good and was very excited to see CRG and meet BJG. That's my favorite moment....having our sons hang out with their Great-Great-Grandmother.

In addition to visiting Great-Great-Grandma, we also made a trip to the Katy Rice Harvest Festival. Cousin Avery and Uncle Jim came along as well. We had a nice time walking around the streets of Downtown Katy. Avery and Christopher played a couple of games while Benjamin was being fed. Imagine...Benjamin was hungry. Overall, it was a great time!

Pictures to come soon.

Sorry I'm such a horrible blogger

CRG requested to sit on the toilet and peed today. Woo-hoo!!

Thanks to Aunt K, we took CRG and BJG to the Aquarium and did everything. CRG loved the aquarium, riding the train, the white tigers, carousel, ferris wheel.....the boy had a blast. Katy and I had just as much fun watching him get so excited. Nice running into you Crawley family.

Man, the Ags looked good tonight.

BJG got baptized last weekend. Thank you to all our friends and family who were able to make it. We really appreciate you being there.

Holy cow, I can't believe CRG will be 2 in less than 2 weeks!

Man, the Ags looked good tonight....
