End of the Year Update

Since I started working full-time this fall I have found it impossible to keep updating the blog. :( So I thought since I have some time on the Christmas break I will do a short catch up update on the last few months of activities.
 July we went to several different Hawaiian Falls water parks around Dallas and had a blast!

We took our family trip to Jellystone Park in Waller, TX. We had a good time, but the one in Burleson is a lot nicer!

Then we went to Galveston and we loved the Pleasure Pier there!

 but it was a bad year for the beach there with all the huge amount of seaweed!

Brianna got to do a Princess Dance Camp with a different princess each day! She loved it! She also got to do a Music Camp at church which was a lot of fun watching her in the musical at the end!

Then at the end of August both Brianna and Brady started school - Mommy was soo sad! They both did really well starting school and are doing great in school now! At that same time I started working full-time for Waco ISD as the student records clerk in the admin building downtown - it's a great mommy job with good hours and the school holidays. I am thankful for the years I had as a stay at home mom and I'm trying to get used to working full-time!

 Brianna got baptized in September! Praise God!

Brady and his cousins continue playing soccer and Brianna started gymnastics.

We went to the Waco Rodeo in October and it was so fun!

Pumpkin patch :)
Halloween - Elsa and Night Ninja!

Our sweet girl turned 7 in November! She is an independent first grader now! She loves to read Junie B. Jones books, help cook, do art work, do cartwheels, all things Frozen, going to school and church, her friends, her puppy, and being silly! Her party was at the museum and she had lots of friends there and they had a blast playing and doing a fun scavenger hunt there!

Brady's kindergarten field trip to the museum! I got to go too!

Our church musical Brianna got to sing in!

Another soccer trophy - Brady loves to play!

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We had a great time celebrating with family and friends!

Brady turned 5 years old on May 5th! He has done a great job in his 3 day preschool this year. He is friends with all the boys in his class. And when we went to kinder round-up he got a perfect score on the little test the teachers give them! He counted to 200 the other day in the car! :) But he's not as excited about going to kindergarten in the fall as Brianna was. He is more nervous about it. He and I have really enjoyed this year together at home. He likes to stay home and have jammies day. He also loves playing games like angry birds or games on the leapster. He loves playing with his dog. He also loves Cars, Planes, super heroes, legos, he loves playing with his toys and he loves getting gifts! His party was at the gymnastics place and they had so much fun!

 I had a great Mother's Day! Brady's preschool does a very nice brunch where the kids sing us songs, I loved it!
 And we had a picnic at Mother Neff state park on Mother's Day!
 Brianna had field day at school and it was so fun!
 Here she is with her friend Jack who she calls her husband! :)
 They had tons of inflatables and water slides too!
