Yep, enough snow that it can actually be measured in inches feet (we hit a record: 12.5 inches in 24 hours).  We had some fun as you can see below.

Once again we had a whirlwind of several days of Christmas with our families.  And as usual, we all had a blast and the kids have tons of new toys to keep them busy for another year.  All the pictures and videos have been posted at the following links:

And for the first time I can remember, we actually had a semi-white Christmas this year thanks to some snow flurries that decided to fall overnight on the 24th.  Checkout the picture of our house below.

It’s that time of year again. This year we went with a theme.  See if you can figure it out!

A couple weeks ago we all went to the great State Fair of Texas.  Brandy and I really only go for all the fried food goodness (can you say fried butter?).  We all had a blast.

While this isn’t the first time Gareth has been to the fair, this is certainly the most fun he’s ever had!  Checkout the pictures below to share in the fun.  We have some great video clips too, but I can’t get them to work.  Hopefully I can make that happen tomorrow.
(OK, I’ll admit that last one wasn’t from the fair, but how cool does he look?)

Yeah, we’re just proud parents, we can’t help it.  Checkout the picture below that Gareth’s teacher sent home a couple days ago.  It just proves he’s WAY smart.  Be sure you checkout how he can write his own name!

She’s still just growing like a weed! And if you haven’t seen or heard her in awhile, she jabbers non-stop these days. She amazed us last night with a ‘2 word phrase.’ I came to get her out of the bathtub and she waved at Brandy and said, “Bye Momma.”

Last Friday she had her official 15 month checkup with Dr. Betty and here are her stats:

  • Weight: 25lbs
  • Height: 31in

Gareth was just sitting reading/playing with a book when he announced that he ‘had to go potty.’  As he headed to the bathroom, he mentioned that he was taking the book with him.  So apparently that male trait is inherent and starts early in life!

On Monday Gareth had his ‘well child checkup’ with Dr. Betty.  His official stats were:

  • Weight: 33lbs
  • Height: 39.5in (3ft 3.5in)

He’s just shy of the 50th percentile for both measurements, but Dr. Betty said he looks great and will probably (hopefully) have an increased appetite in the next year or so which should help get his weight up.

He, of course, amazed her with his vocabulary and knowledge.  We all know how smart he is!
