Jax's Tree

We planted a tree in Kyle when Jax was just a little over a year old! Jax loved that tree... or should I say the dirt that we put around it. He spent hours playing, eating, shoveling, and pushing cars in that dirt! We laughed that Jax made that tree grow with all the love he gave it over the years! As Ollie came along he found the same joy in Jax's little tree. Here are a few picture of the tree/ Jax growing.

Dirty from tree play!

See how little the tree was at one time!

These are the last picture with the tree.

Sanitation Worker

or Garbage Man.... that's what Ollie wants to be! Or an 18 wheeler driver! When you are 4 big trucks rock! He was so excited when the movers came and let him in the truck. Then the day just got better, the garbage men let him help them crush the trash twice.... his smile & awe was priceless!

It's SOLD!

Today, it is no longer ours!
We Loved this house for almost 8 years....funny we said we would only live there 2 years at the most. We loved Plum Creek so much! We loved our friends we made even more. We doubled our amount of kids, had dozens of birthdays, said a final goodbye, and made precious memories in this Wonderful Home.
We pray that the new owner find as much happiness in it as we did!

Tomorrow, we will purchase the new house! We are all so excited. It really is the perfect home! I am finally ready to get settled here in Houston. God knew that I need a little extra time letting go of our old home ;-) It was nice to have that last Christmas with so many of our Dear friends!!!!! We will miss you all so much...... COME VISIT!

Boys will be Boys

Today while getting the boys hair cut I heard tons of snickering. Jax and his buddy were huddled around a magazine. Then they picked it up to and urged Ollie to come see!

What....... it is a SPORTS MAGAZINE!?!?!?
