We had friends come over for the Super Bowl and they brought their new puppy, Max. He's so cute. Here are a few pics I snapped of him. Paige had the best time playing with him. Jake was more interested in plaing Nerf wars with their boys!

I'm pathetic....

Wow...I can't believe it's been so long since I've updated this! Pathetic!!!

I wanted to share an awesome new digi blog I found - It's really good and I've gotten some great information off of it. Found a new automated online backup site - and a free font manager program I'm planning to download. Check out this site!!

I recently got a new digital SLR for my bday in Nov. It's a Canon 40D. I'm still trying to figure it out! Here are some photos I took at the zoo. See all of them on my flickr account.

Halloween fun

We had a great time trick or treating last week for Halloween. It was so warm here. Plus staying up late was fun for them since it wasn't a school night.

Where has the time gone????

So...I've totally been MIA the past several weeks! I started a new project (with the IT consulting company I'm with now) in downtown Dallas at Blockbuster's HQ and things have been crazy. My part time job has pretty much become full time. I finished the first project and they've asked me to stay on and take on a new project so I guess it's going to be like this for awhile! The good news is that with the extra $$ I'm treating myself to a new camera! Right now I'm looking at a Canon 40D Digital SLR. My dad just gone one and I really like it. Plus we'll be able to share lenses so that's cool too.

The last several weeks have been busy with the kids activities - soccer, cheerleading, flag football and cub scouts, plus homework. Busy, busy. See some of the fun pics below.

We also celebrated the kids bdays a couple weeks back - on the same weekend. That was crazy!!

I'm going to try to stay more current with my posts!!

It's done!!!'s taken a while, but I just finished our summer vacation album. I can't wait to see it printed as a Photobook. Thanks so much to Susan Catmull that let me know that our TLC photobooks are expiring soon so I got it done ASAP!

It's finally here...the first day of school. We dropped off Jake (2nd grade) and Paige (Kinder) this morning. Jake was excited to see his friends and was completely fine. Paige was really quiet as we were waiting in the cafeteria. When we got to the classroom she did great putting up her lunch box and backpack. She even gave her teacher the cute little desk calendar I made (see image below) and posed for pictures. Then as we were getting ready to leave she started crying and kept asking me to stay a little big longer. I started getting teary-eyed too so wasn't much help consoling her. I think she'll be fine once the class gets started. Plus she'll get to see one of her good friends at recess so they will be good too.

I wasn't like this with Jake, but I guess it's different when it's your baby! I wasn't the only red-eyed mom this morning! Now I'm sitting at home trying to figure out what to do with my day! Lots of things on my list, but I've just been taking it easy so far this morning chatting on the phone and downloading pictures.

Here are a few from this morning -

My cute cub scout

Jake has joined cub scouts this year and they have a popcorn fundraiser that has just begun. So yesterday we walked around the neighborhood and sold some popcorn. He was a little shy at first, but he had a pretty good sales pitch by the time we were finished. He wants to go again tonight - which I was really surprised by. Tom suggested that maybe we need to explain that the money is for the boy scouts...he doesn't get to keep it! LOL! That could be part of the excitement!!
