The Stars at Night are Big and Bright...


Deep in the Heart of Texas!!!!

Here is the capitol in Austin, TX.

Inside the capitol RJ headed straight to the Treasury which made Daddy very proud of his little girl!

This is the inside of the dome of the capitol. Around the star it says Texas in case you didn't catch that.

This is the floor underneath the dome. It represents the six flags over Texas. They are (in no particular order) Spain, France, Republic of Texas, United States, The Confederacy, and Mexico.

Here we are in front of the Alamo in San Antonio. It was awesome inside, but they didn't allow any pictures, sorry. There was a ton of graffiti on the walls from the 1800's and early 1900's.

On "Vacation"

Does a stay at home mom ever really get a vacation? I guess I don't have to clean up or cook, but I feel like I am a better daughter if I help. Not to mention you still have your kid to take care of. Anyways, enjoy pictures from RJ's 1st birthday and the Palmer Christmas party. I miss my Palmer family...especially those wonderful sisters, and I miss those great friends in California too! Merry Christmas Everyone!

I found it!

This is one of my most favorite teas and it is only around for the holiday season. It can sometimes be a little difficult to find. But last night, I was shopping at Target to get everything needed for the Palmer Family Christmas Party on Saturday and I just happened across it! It wasn't where the normal tea was it was on a side shelf, but on the back side. I bought two boxes. So wonderful!!!

Holiday Grump

I tried to get a picture on Sunday of Rebecca in her dress with her adorable bow on her head. She was too quick for me! She has been so grumpy lately, but I don't actually think its the holidays. It is so easy to blame everything on teething. She doesn't have a runny nose or fever, so I don't think she is sick. No digestive issues that I can tell from the changing of a diaper. So therefore, it must be teething, right? Its so hard because they can't tell you and its hard to see. Poor little booger.

We were at the mall last night. Rebecca loved pushing
the stroller around, and we got such a kick out of it!

Practice makes perfect, but I'm not sure what this is

I was singing happy birthday and practicing blowing out the candle with Rebecca so she would know what to do come Saturday for her birthday. But she really didn't get the whole blowing out the candle thing, but it is only the first day at this. We've got the whole week to work on it.

My Little Boy

Rebecca had a leaky diaper when we went over to see Crissie and the boys on Thursday night. So Crissie got Rebecca something to wear. It was a little bit big. But she is still so cute!

Christmas Spirit

How much fun is this?!! The past two days I've made cranberry cinnamon scones, pumpkin butter, caramels, granola bars that turned out more like granola crumble, and peppermint bark of course!

Rebecca got really excited about all the Christmas excitement too!

Chillin' and Baking

Rebecca wearing her cute sunglasses. Daddy got this cute picture of her.

Daddy was craving something yummy, so he and I made chocolate cookies with peanut butter and chocolate chips in them. Delicious!
