Swim Lessons

The boys finished their 2 weeks of swimming lessons last week. We went back to Keller Point, since they had such a good time last year. Both boys enjoyed being in the water even more this time! The first few pictures are of us going around the Lazy River practicing our kicks.

Grant LOVES to jump in, probably his favorite thing!

Warming Up, poor Grant was always freezing by the end of the lesson!

Babysitting Emelynne

Last Friday night, we had the pleasure of babysitting our niece, Emelynne.
As soon as she arrived, Grant was telling us that a Baby was here! He was ok with her as long as no one was holding her!
Razzles had never met Emelynne, so she stopped by for a minute to hold the baby.
(Love this picture!)
Grant decided she needed her "GeGe".
I put her down in the floor to play for awhile and Rhett thought he would keep her company.
He decided she might like to do a little magazine reading. All the girls he knows read magazines, so why not!
Grant giving her a kiss, notice she was on the floor!
And finally, Uncle Aaron giving her a bottle. She wasn't too happy about it at first, but seemed to get over it quickly!
We had a good time with you Emelynne, you will have to come visit again soon!

I'm Rhett James!

Rhett has definitely turned out to be our Head Strong, Do-It-Myself Kid!
I love his determined spirit, which sometimes comes across as orneriness!
The things he comes up with constantly amaze us.

He has learned how to buckle himself into his highchair
Find ways to haul his drink around
Be comfortable while watching his show
(He pushed the stroller over to the T.V himself and crawled in, all on his own!)
Disappear for a few minutes
Play a little basketball
Undress himself (Yes, that is his diaper and pj bottoms, in case you were wondering the diaper was totally dry... the bed was not)
And keep himself safe from Microwave Radiation!
Love You Rhett the Jet!

Wildflower Hill Year 2

These pictures are a little late, we took them a few weeks ago, but as they say: Better Late than Never, Right??
The boys were not exactly thrilled, the hill is pretty steep and I'm sure the flowers and grass are itchy. This is the best we could do!

Is it a Bird?
Is it Superman?
It's a Plane!
Good Grief! Little Boys....

Bounce, Bounce, Bounce!

The boys received a bounce house for Christmas, but because the box was so large we did not bring it home with us. However, GiGi and Grandad brought it with them this past weekend. I'm sure you can imagine how much fun they had!!

While the boys were at home with their Daddy, GiGi and Grandad, (bouncing away!) Razzles and I went to a book signing in Dallas. I've never been to a book signing before, but I can say, it was alot of fun! Of course, this particular author, Jen Lancaster is by far one of the funniest people ever. I LOVE her books!!!
This is Jen, getting ready to do a reading from her latest memoir. So far she has written 5 novels and they are ALL hilarious. She writes about her life and the crazy people around her, she has a very dry sense of humor and is very witty. So.... if you hate to laugh or maybe you are just an all around boring person: then don't read her books!

Jen also has a blog that is quite funny as well:
