Happy Halloween

Here we are at a Halloween party last night. Colt was funny b/c he didn't understand why everyone was dressed up. But he sure was excited to be at a party... which to him means CAKE! He hovered around the dessert table until we pried him away crying.

My little football player

And little baseball player. Can you tell I didn't want to spend money on costumes this year? I figure we have so much sports stuff around the house, why not utilize it. I bought the helmet off of Craigslist. It was advertised as a youth, but it definitely fits Ty and myself. No wonder Colt never wanted to wear it - that helmet is HEAVY!
This is the best pic of the boys together that I could get.
Can you guess what we are? ... I'm H1 and he's N1. Swine flu.
Hope you enjoyed dressing up yourself!

Argh! and Florida

I get so frustrated because I have a ton of blog post ideas... that I never get around to posting! I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. (Sorry to all 2 of my readers ;)

With that said, here's a bit of what we've been up to.

Ty's co-worker, Keith, has an awesome tailgate at all the UT games. A few weeks ago we loaded up the kids and went to hang out and eat some of his great sausage. Look for Shiner Smokehouse Sausage next time you are at HEB to taste this amazing food. Here is a picture of us that Michelle, one of my 2 loyal readers, took of us at the tailgate. Just so ya know, tailgates aren't very kid friendly. Doubt we'll be lugging the kiddos along with us next time. Navigating the crowds with a double-stroller just isn't any fun.
Also, we went to Tampa a few weekends ago. It was a fabulous time of reconnecting with old friends and visiting the people who will always hold a special place in our hearts. Ty and I went to a Tampa Bay Rays game with our good friends, Kristel and Noah. It was great to be back at the Trop. Games are way better in person than on tv! We were able to leave the game with them through the player's exit. This was an incredible experience that I will always remember. As we were in the waiting area, several of the players walked by... B.J. Upton, Gabe Gross (my favorite), J.P. Howell, etc. Kristel had told us before hand that we shouldn't ask for autographs or take pictures, so we didn't (just incase you were wondering). Now that I know how the other half live, going to a major league game will never be the same again! Thanks guys for this great time with you guys.

We also had a nice breakfast with our friends, Jesse and Kristin. Jesse has started his own word press customization business that is booming. Awesome! Check him out at

We also got 2nd row seats to an amazing concert! (Granted there were only like 15 rows total.) Juliana Zobrist, an up and coming Christian musician, performed at our church. Her style is kinda Indie Rock and she put on a great show! You can check her out on itunes if you want. Her husband is Tampa Bay Ray's player, Ben Zobrist. They were awesome and stayed after the concert until everyone had left to talk and sign autographs.

We also had a special night with our old small group. We ate, played Wii, and just talked. Of course I didn't get any pictures, but it sure was great to catch up with everyone! You guys hold a special place in our hearts. I think we will always have high expectations for small groups because of the koinonia we shared :)

Ok, for those of you who don't like to read, but just look at pictures, here are what everyone wants to see from a Florida vacation... the beach!

We headed to the beach with our friend Kristel and her kids, the day we left. It was a great way to wrap up our short Florida vacation. We are so grateful to everyone who hosted us (yes, Joyce, this means you too). We love you guys!
