Daddy's home

This is how it usually goes every day when daddy gets home
Tealyn gets really excited
Then she pouts when he kisses her 
too much. 
She knows what's next...
 A neighborhood stroller ride...till the mosquitos come out.

More Parrots

Did I mention we have lots of parrots around here?
They gather around this fountain every day.
you can hear them from miles away.

One of the greatest things about living in South Texas.

Tealyns Baptismal

I was especially blessed to be able to celebrate my first Mothers day and the beautiful sacrament of baptism of our Tealyn in the same day. It was truly a dream come true.
 A little blurry, but here she is being baptized.
I was so proud of her she didn't cry, I think she liked the fresh holy water.

I had these beautiful cookies made at a local bakery they were so delicious! Afterwards we enjoyed a nice buffet lunch with our parents and Godparents. I wish I had used my camera to take more pictures of afterwards in front of the church and our fabulous lunch. Unfortunately, I had so many things to carry and everyone was using their cell phones. Hopefully I will get those soon.
And, here we are rushing out the door 
for mass.

Back Yard make over Phase 1 The fence.

Its been a while I know, but I really, really have been so busy
 between getting our backyard fence,  baptismal classes, and so
  many other things that life throws at you , I honestly had not had a chance for blogging. I am trying to catch up every chance I get . Right now, its perfect. She is napping, I have the dryer going, my phone is off  and praise God the kitchen is clean.

The fence:
Here's the deal... never underestimate the power of privacy.
I will never take that for granted again.

Its amazing.
Tealyn and I have been reading books in the shade, lying lazy in the hammock, looking at birds, listening to sesame street classic music on pandora.  And I feel confident that no one is staring or noticing that I am wearing my trusty black stretchy yoga pants 3 days in a row.

And, even though,  I got a little sick with the cedar dust (allergies) and felt light headed for several days.

I still think it was worth it. 
Stay tuned for phase 2 landscaping.
I am so excited.....
