I know it has been forever since I have updated the blog!! With facebook and shutterfly and all the other media outlets, I have neglected the blogging world. To give a quick update, the summer ended and school started. I am loving my team and kids this year....we are all working well together and my kids at school are AMAZING!! One of the best groups I have ever had!! The kids are LOVING being in daycare and LOVE their teacher and the friends they are with everyday. Paul has fully adjusted to his new job and is having fun with his new co-workers. I am just glad he isn't traveling any. With this update, I posted a few pictures from Ella's birthday and a few from last weekend!! Enjoy!!!!

The Fourth 2010

This year for the 4th of July, we hosted a BBQ at our house. Paul smoked brisket, sausage, and chicken....everyone else brought the fixins and dessert. It was sooo yummy. The kids has a blast playing and the adults had fun just visiting with each other. It seems to get a little easier each time with the kids getting older and a little more independent. Here are some of my favorite pics from the evening!!
We fit 10 kids around the table!! That was a first!!

Zachary, Gunner, Derek, Kaycie, Tyler, Hudson, Jackson, Dylan, Ella, & Luke
Our girls are way out numbered!!

Potty Break

Ella was so tired at the end of the night....she just curled up in the chair and didn't want to be bothered. When we got home, she asked to go to bed.

We saw about 5 different sets of fireworks from the Cabela's parking lot. It was fun to hang out with friends, watch the kids play, and see fireworks.

Father's Day 2010

For Father's Day this year we went to Houston to celebrate with Gueddo!! We ate good food, went to see Toy Story 3, ate ice cream, and spent some great time with Teta and Gueddo!! Paul and I even got to slip away for some shopping while Ella and Hudson played with Teta and Gueddo at the house. We even planned a trip for the kids to go stay with Teta and Gueddo without mom and dad in July.
Here are some highlights from our trip:
Ella playing around on her sleeping bag. The Hosni Family eating dinner at Taste of Texas!!
