Rice Cereal

So while in OKC over Valentine's weekend, Aubrey had her first experience with rice cereal. She was not sure what to think at first. By Sunday night, she was loving it!

Mimi tries to feed Aubrey her rice cereal. She is not sure what to thing. It is amazing to see how innocent and trusting babies are. It was so obvious she did not like it, but she kept eatting it because it was coming from people who love her.

Yucky, yucky, yucky!!!!


By Sunday night we were back at home and to our surprise...she loved her rice cereal. Yea!!

OKC Here We Come

We were already planning to head to OKC to visit Alan's parents this weekend, but loosing our electricity pushed us out of town a little earlier. It was such a fun weekend.

Papa and Aubrey just hanging out.

Aubrey's first time trying rice cerel. She was not sure what to think.
"Yuck! What are you feeding me mom?"
"Why do I keep eatting this stuff? It has a bad taste."

We left the snow in Dallas, but I guess it followed us to OKC. This was Sunday morning before church. Luckily, by the time church got out the snow was gone. Literally, we walked out of church and there was no snow on the ground. Amazing!

Proud grandparents!

NOT snow much fun..

So, everyone can agree that Dallas looks beautiful in the snow. And anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE snow. But after this weekend I think we can all agree that Dallas is not designed to handle a big snow/ice storm. So when the biggest snow storm in Dallas' history hit us last Thursday it presented all sorts of problems. It started with me being really late to work on Thursday and ended with our power going out on Friday morning around 12:30 am, followed by a tree branch breaking and falling on the roof of our house (thank goodness we are renting right now). With our house loosing heat ever minute, Friday was spent at our family and friends homes.
Thursday morning - Taking Aubrey over to Grampy's house. It took us twice as long to get there.

Arriving at my parents house at 7:30 in the morning. Some yards already had snowmen built and dressed. Man, kids sure are eager to get up early, for anything but school.

Picking Aubrey up after school Thursday. The snow was really coming down.

When Aubrey and I got home, Daddy had already started his snow fort in the front yard.

All our neighbors were out Thursday afternoon. This family had the best snow people on the block (and they weren't even done).

Friday morning, after spending the night in our home with no heat, we headed for my parents house around 7:oo am. This was the view from our garage.

I love Lake Highlands because of the trees. You can see how beautiful they are from this picture I took. However....

many trees did not make it. Our neighborhood lost a lot of trees. I guess that is what caused us to loose power.
A nice warm breakfast and Grampy and Cici's. Then it was time to play.

More Fun with Carine and Tessa

Saturday was full of more fun. I went to help some friends with their Garage Sale and Alan took Aubrey to a Daddy/daughter event. Then that evening we met up with David, Carine, and Tessa for dinner. I have been so sad since Carine and Tessa moved away, but feel so blessed that they still come to Dallas to visit. It was so good to see them multiply times this last visit.

Daddy and Aubrey before they met John and Kai at "Dads, Daughters, and Donuts"event held at a church in town.
