Sneak Peek

Gabe and I have a friend from high school and college who is starting out her photography business, even though a lot of you blog readers are her friend too I am still giving a shout-out to Paige Walker Photography. She was kind enough to drive to our home last weekend to snap some photos. We were glad she brought her whole family along with her so we could all catch up and the kids could play!

Here are a few "Sneak Peek" pics she posted today on her blog. We are under the heading "SOON TO BE 4"

If you are looking for a portrait/special events photographer, give Paige a call!

Green Beans and Ketchup

Sounds delicious, right????

I caught Brody dipping his green beans in his ketchup during lunch today. Yuck! We all do crazy things, I guess!

Happy Sunday!

The Cutest Little Ring Bearer

Earlier this year, Gabe's college roommate proposed to his girlfriend in Paris. (How awesome!!) When they returned home, the wedding plans began. Choosing the date and venue as well as selecting bridesmaids and groomsmen. Well, Colin was sweet enough to ask Gabe to be a groomsman. I knew it meant a lot to Gabe to be asked and I could tell he was excited. I'm sure mainly due to the bachelor party! :) After continuing their phone conversation Colin expressed how much it would mean to he and Kristen to have Brody be the ring bearer in their wedding, now I am excited! First of all, what mom doesn't think their child is the cutest thing in the world? And who wouldn't want their adorable 18 month old to dress in a mini tux? I just about died when I saw him in it at the tux shop.

Back on track...
Their wedding was in Houston at a gorgeous country club in mid-September. He are some pictures from the weekend, all of Brody of course.

Brody was repeating "go" every two seconds, because he was ready to "go" to the rehearsal!
Thanks Colin and Kristen for the adorable rehearsal outfit!

Watching the pre-wedding entertainment. A man singing with a little guitar playing.

STILL watching the man play

Right before this picture, Brody is having a HUGE, MASSIVE, LOUD fit because Daddy left to walk down the aisle. He is screaming with tears streaming down his face. I am in panic-mode wondering is he going to be able to do this? I'm almost tearing up.... I finally set him down, in line right before he is to start his walk. The 7 year old flower girl just takes his hand and completely takes over. Brody does just fine. He made it all the way down. Just stopped briefly to pick up some of the petals that were being dropped by the flower girls!
And they are off.... This flower girl (holding Brody's hand) was so sweet to him and did a great job of helping him walk down the aisle.

Colin and most of the the groomsmen. Cut one guy off....sorry!

The only picture I got of the bride all weekend. (I hate it when I do that.) Kristen is one of the kindest, sweetest, happiest people I have ever met. And she was glowing the whole weekend!

This is what Brody and I did during the ceremony. Up and down the stairs, up and down, up and down. Oh yeah, and we played cars for a little bit. His sweet flower girl friend was kind enough to bring Brody some toys so he would stay quite during the ceremony. How kind is that?

Where is Brody? He is standing the dance floor right in the center, solo. He could have stayed and watched them play all night long! Definitely a fan of music.

Dancing!! Not really, looks like he just finished a routine or something, but in all actuality, he was clapping to the music. Makes me laugh!

Doing some dance moves with Daddy

Intently watching the band play....

Showing us some skin

Enjoying his time on the dance floor

My 2 loves

Mommy and Brody - excuse the ponytail, my hair was not cooperating with the Houston humidity (especially since it rained an hour before the wedding)

Sunday morning -- total "man pose"

The wedding was absolutely stunning and we were so greatful to be included in all the festivities. Wishing Colin and Kristen a very long, blissful marriage!

A Big Helper

We had just gotten home from one of our trips to Houston this past September and I was in need of sorting and organizing the laundry. I was thankful to have a little bit of "help" from this sweet angel.

Here I am! Ready to help!

Let's get this party started!

These seem like a good choice.

How about I put these khaki pants in the pile for you mom.

Why are you taking my picture? Shouldn't you be working too?

Working hard for the money...

I think this is where the pants need to go.

Ok, they are now in the pile.

Looks like my work here is done.

Let me walk over the pile of clothes, just to make sure.

Yep, I'm off to find my toys!
