Glimpses 11.5

This week calls for a double dose of glimpses! On Wednesday afternoon, we took off work and headed to the rodeo with the boys.  We ate fried food and let cotton candy melt on our tongues. We met a few pigs and some cows. We rode ponies and tractors and a wagon... and maybe we didn't get to ride on the Ferris Wheel just yet, but they boys were flying high on one of the free rides at the rodeo... and couldn't have been happier!

Glimpses Week 11

It is unmistakable when the stomach bug hits your house. There is nothing worse than a sick little one. A little one that doesn’t really understand being sick. Sometimes being wrapped in daddy’s arms with the distraction of Mickey and best friend tucked by your side is the best medicine.

And in 24 hours... it was gone!

Glimpses Week 10

They are heros. And last tuesday evening, when a tree crash caused our entire neighborhood’s power to go out, they performed more than one heroic act of protecting a live wire. They left a huge imprint on one little boy’s world. Which made the 4 hours without power bearable. These men could have simply done the task their chief had assigned, but instead they took the time to show Liam what it takes to be a fireman. They let him drive the truck, sound the airhorn, listen to the siren, run the waterhose, fill back up with the hydrant, and even wear their hat. I cannot thank these incredible men enough for being so wonderful to my son. We were all worn out from working all day and the last thing we wanted was to come home to a power outage. Liam still talks about those firemen. They are famous in our house. It turned out to be an amazing night! Thank you so much to our neighborhood heros!

All Aboard!

"Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that's playing.
There's no time to waste,
There so much to celebrate. 
Believe in what you feel inside,
Give your dreams the wings to fly."
You have everything you need, if you just believe."

Liam's Polar Express themed 2nd birthday turned out better than I could have dreamed it for him. These birthdays have grown legs and have certainly turned into productions, but to see the pure joy on his face made it all worth it!

Glimpses Week 9

This week we dusted off our boots and kicked off the Rodeo season here in Houston, Texas. It is one of my favorite times of the year and I hope to gather a few glimpses of my little cowboy. Yee Haw! (Sorry for the grain, but when the lights go out... sometimes the Nikon D90 and moon just doesn't cut it.. come on D800)

Don't forget to check out the Chic Critique Forum for all the other glimpses projects
