One is silver and the others gold!

For those of you that ever did girl scouts you will remember the song we used to sing "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold!!!!" This was just a reminder to me of all the friends I have all across the world and how special each and everyone of you are!

This weekend my dear friend Shannon threw me a Surprise-Belated-Birthday-Scavenger-Bash! It was great! The day started with the first clue that led us to Shannon's house for a awesome lunch and the greatest part was it was just us girls!!! (more pictures to come)

Then came the second clue which led us to going to get a pedicure and manicure. What girl wouldn't want that!

Then the third clue led us to dinner with the rest of the gang... our husbands and kiddos.

It still went on to the last clue and destination being our house for yummy dessert and fellowship! It was a great day and just reminded me of how thankful we are for all our friends.

The dog days of summer are behind us we opened up all the windows here the last couple days. It has been so nice out! This is my favorite time of year. Actually I think I say that twice a year, once now and again at springtime. Those of you who know how HOT Texas can be know that we welcome Fall.

My Mother and Father-in-law came and spent the weekend with us and even though it was a short time we accomplished a lot. We Went to the Civil War Museum, had dinner with family, and I learned how to embroider. Andrew also had a fitting for his Halloween costume that Grandma is making and just to keep you in suspense I am going to wait to tell you what it is! We had a great time! Can' t wait to see you all again soon!

To Flu Or Not To Flu

Andrew went today to his 9 month check up and the Dr said he looked great and was right were he should be. It has been very encouraging watching Andrew lately as he is progressing in milestones. Due to Andrews stroke we did not know what would be ahead of us and what he would struggle with. But God is good and each day we continue to look to Him and see what He will do in Andrew's life. I am encouraged that he is scooting and moving right along. Still has not said any words like Dada or Mama but we are hoping he will one day soon. Also on a side note he has been going to OT weekly and recently we took him to a neck and back Dr. that specializes in head injuries or traumatic births for kids. After we could tell a difference in how lose Andrews hand was and he was using it more. We go back in a couple weeks and the Dr will look at Andrew again.

Also the pediatrician recommended we give Andrew the Flu shot, what are your thoughts? I am thinking of not doing it but if you have any advice please let me know, thanks!!

Andrew's first hair cut

So today Curt gave Andrew his first official hair cut. I didn't know if I was going to cry or laugh. It started with us just just using scissors and it ended with Curt and the clippers! Let me also tell you not only was this Andrew's first haircut it was Curt's first time giving a haircut. The good news is it will always grow back. I think next time we are going to the professionals.

It was after this that we decided to break out the clippers

Like father like son
