Enjoy your week.

He has a little white cup in his hands that he is using to splash with. We got this cup at a restaurant with a spoon. He has walked around all day "pretending" to feed himself and Molly.
This is my favorite face that he makes. He breathes deeply through his nose and squints his eyes. He is so adorable.
We are looking forward to this week. James has some work in Lubbock, so Connor and I are tagging along to spend time with family and friends. We are excited to see Eric, Elly, all the teachers that I taught with, and Grandma and Papa (Aunt Jan, Uncle Dalyn, the girls, Uncle John and Aunt Kristi). I will post pictures of our week when we return on Sunday.

If you notice his poor little head has bruises all over it. When he began walking more and more his head began to turn different colors!!!

When James' Great-Grandmother was alive she used to have this way of thinking. She always said that marriages were broken up into 7 year sets. Whoever was "in charge" the first 7 years, the other spouse got to "take over" the next 7 years and then it just continued. So James, I hope your run was good, now I'll kindly take over for my 7 years. HA HA HA HA
Yesterday James and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. James surprised Connor and I by coming home EARLY!!!! We ate steaks that James cooked on the grill and played with Connor. A few weeks ago when my Aunt and cousins were down, James and I went to the Brad Paisley Concert at the Superpages.com Center. It was a great surprise to see where our seats were. We sat in the 2nd row. I felt like a teenage girl again. James was such a great sport about this, he enjoyed Julianna Huff (Dancing with the Stars) and Jewel (she played all her "old" songs). I enjoyed Chuck Wicks (Cinderella) and BRAD!!!! Thanks James for the great seats.
James and I decided to stand at the stage with Brad came out...YUCK...stinky, sweaty, OLD/YOUNG girls crowding me. Luckily for me James is BIG and protective. It's nice to keep him around!!!! By the way, I caught a guitar pick that he threw out to the crowd. YEA
By the end of Brads set I was ready to come home. I could definitely tell my age. We didn't even stay for the Encore. We did hear it as we were leaving for the car.
We had a great time spending time together, but both agreed we MISSED Connor!

His hair...ever since he was born I've always said that if he were a girl he would have beautiful hair. I've tried to put it into pig tails (only in the privacy of our home), but his daddy doesn't seem to think that is funny. As you can see he is a handsome boy with great hair. If only I could get mine to do what his does. Bath time is one of the last steps in his rigorous routine that we swear by, followed closely by bedtime at 8:00. Whew, it has been a long day, but we are thankful for everyday we spend together!!! We love weekends with DA-DA!!!!

Connor knew he WANTED in this car and Kylar was NOT going to stop him from getting in. Poor Kylar, Connor out weighs him by about 5 lbs. There is a button in the car that can be pushed to turn on the radio, Kylar only had 1 hand to dance with...
Check out the thighs on that boy!!!

For Connor's birthday his Uncle Bubba gave him a Radio flyer car...Kylar loves anything with wheels. You can see where this is going. Connor at one point was sitting in Kylar's lap. Sharing your toys is a hard lesson to teach a 1 year old and 1 1/2 year old. Everyone survived, and we had a blast.
On Saturday evening James had made previous plans for us to go out for our anniversary (that's another blog). The women in the family went to visit my Great Aunt who just happens to live 15 minutes from us here in Flower Mound. She lives in a retirement home and is 90 years old. She is doing fantastic and still takes care of herself and probably everyone else who lives there. Mom said that Connor and Kylar livened that place up...you can only imagine.
Kathie and Paige took Kylar back to DC with them, and Mom and I got Jenn back on the plane home to Fausto. James had to make a trip to Lubbock on Monday, so Connor and I went to Hillsboro to visit Papa. Here it is Wednesday and we are exhausted but happy everyone came to visit us.
Enjoy the pictures of the "Boys".
