looking back

Just posting an older photo today for your enjoyment.

This is Cindy and Kairiea from August of 2004.

They were up in Indiana at Cindy's folks.

Great grandpa

Here's my dad and my grandson.

Neidon has not met his other great grandpa yet.

Which of these two guys appears more content?

Curly hair

This is a great shot!

Rachel had put Kaireia's hair into curls and you can see her admiring herself in the mirror.

I'm admiring her too!

Cold rodeo

It was so cold at the rodeo, but Neidon had to watch - he couldn't stay covered up under the blanket for long.

This is him watching Kaireia ride the pony.

Old Dolly

A rainy day in San Antonio! Hooray!!

Here's another rodeo shot to brighten up your day.

Kaireia is riding "Dolly" and her daddy, Darin is walking alongside.

She was all smiles on this pony.

Pig petting

Here's another Rodeo photo from last week. Reed and Kaireia petting a pig.

That Uncle Reed knows how to show Kaireia a good time!


Here's Neidon and Kaireia playing on our kitchen floor.

Neidon is trying to crawl and Kaireia wants to help.

The Merry-go-round was fun.

Reed, Rachel and Kaireia enjoyed the ride.

Reed couldn't find a horse big enough to ride on.

Here's Reed and Kaireia petting a Llama in the petting zoo area at the rodeo.

They (the llamas) look huge when you are up next to them.

I think they were enjoying this(?)

We had a great day at the rodeo but very COLD!

Kaireia loved the pony ride. She's a real cow girl.

Wait until you see her new pink cowboy boots.

Cindy and Neidon Feb 2006

Well, Grandma is in hog heaven.

It don't get no better than this.

More photos soon.

Black sheep

Every family has a dark side - a black sheep of the family.

I must come clean - I have someone too.

She is from the northern part of the country (i.e. Yankee) - the up country part of my family.

Here is a photo of her in her Sumo wrestler phase.

Not a pretty sight!

Notice I didn't even mention Laura's name!

Long ride

I hope Neidon is still this happy after 10 hours in a car seat.

It looks like he needs his gramps to hold him!

(He has his grandma Adams' chin and jowls.)

Red hat

Hi gang!

Another week has begun.

We're excited as our kids and grandkids will all be here this week.

It's a red hat week.
Let's rodeo!

Early reader

Neidon is getting some serious reading done.

He knows he'll be here in a few days and we like to discuss the literature we're reading with each other.

He's a real avid reader.

Momma's little helper

Here's our little girl helping her mommy vacuum the floor.

Of course, mommy carries her baby while she works, so we have to do the same.

Our babies will be here in San Antonio in a few days and we can't wait to carrying them around!

They match

Kaireia is becoming more the young lady every day. She loves having her mommy fix her hair up.

And she likes her clothing and accessories to MATCH!

5 months photos

Here are our babys' 5 month old photos.
Neidon is the top photo and Kaireia the bottom photo.
As he grows the differences get more evident.

Caught you!

Why do kids always look like you caught them red handed, even if they are innocent?

Do you notice that Kaireia is holding Neidon's hand?

My beautiful blue eyed kids!

Little bride

Here is our future 'bride'. Rachel says Kaireia likes to dress up as a bride with a blanket as her dress and a wash cloth as her veil.

It looks like she is wearing a red night gown under all this.

Beauty queen

Kaireia is our little beauty. You can see that she isn't camera shy. We can hardly wait to see her and we will in just a few weeks.

They'll be here for the San Antonio livestock show and Rodeo.

But until then, we'll just have to enjoy her pictures.

First bites

Neidon doesn't seem too thrilled with his first bites of "real" food. If you can call baby cereal real food.

He hasn't figured out you have to swallow it!

Fishing buddies

Good morning to all! Just a story to pass along today.

I have a client who is an avid fisherman. She said she fishes on the Pedernales River and occasionally with a young man with whom she enjoys discussing God with as well. She finally asked him what he did for a living, as he was off a lot in the daytime. He said he wrote songs. So she said - a song writer? What songs have you written? Well, he replied, one of mine in "How Great is Our God".

Imagine, meeting Chris Tomlin at a fishing hole?
