Texas in spring time!

Nothing is better than Texas in spring time. Kalan and I went searching for Blue Bonnets today and boy did we find them. Kalan ran and twirled and mommy chased after with camera in tow. It was a beautiful day.

We just got home from a wonderful weekend filled with family, candy, food, eggs, and did I mention candy. We all had so much fun especially miss Kalan who was going full blast the entire weekend. I was actually surprised when she didn't sleep the whole way home. Uncle J cooked some amazing meals that most definitely put the leftover spaghetti in our fridge to shame. Aunt Julie got her workout for the next few months in by pushing Kalan on the swing and chasing her around. We all talked about how much better it will be when Hudson joins Kalan in a few years, but for now we enjoied getting to see him online with his mommy and daddy.
The best part of the weekend were the traditions we are helping to build for Kalan. This was the first year that kalan understood what was going on, and was able to really get into it. She had a smile plastered on her face most of the weekend and I can only imagin what next year will be like.
One thing that I keep remining my self in the good times and the not so good times is that, it only gets better. Thats an amazing idea to me and it keeps me opptomistic for the future.

A worl wind kind of year!

The last year has been amazing, exciting, busy, and ever changing. Two weddings, and a new nephew later, things are only getting better by the day. Kalan just celebrated her third birthday and has grown leaps and bounds in the blink of an eye. She keeps us on our toes and never knowing what to expect next. She is so smart (too smart for her own good sometimes) and loves to use her overflowing vocabulary.
I am finishing up my last semester of classes at ACU and will start student teaching in the fall. The end is in sight! Just a few more weeks of mayhem and then it is time to relax, for a minuet at least.
This year we also added a new uncle and a new nephew. Kalan is very excited about meeting Baby Hudson at the end of May but her expectations might be alittle off. She was really wanting her Aunt Jennifer to have a four year old insead of a newborn. We have been talking alot about it and she is starting to come around to the idea. She talks about teaching him to play and be big like her.
The newest addition to our family is my new camera!!! I have been waiting for it for what seems like forever but it is finally here. I am learning slowly but surly how to use it and capture every wonderful moment of our crazy lives.
