Thanksgiving 2012

Bobpa and Grammy came in town for Thanksgiving.  We had a great dinner at the Smith's on Thursday night, then packed up the RV and headed to the Eppright Ranch on Friday morning.  The boys LOVED the ranch.

Formula 1 comes to Austin!

Matt and I experienced the first Formula One race in Austin at the brand new track.  We went with our friends Ross and Tami and Casey and his friend.  It was a really neat experience.

Halloween 2012

The boys requested to be firemen this halloween after the fire department visited their school.  We stopped at the fire department on Halloween night.  The boys were their only trick-or-treaters so they got the full tour of the station!  They are so into everything fireman right now that we have to point out every fire hydrant we see as we are driving down the road - I never knew how many fire hydrants there were!!!  All different colors too.

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

October 11-14, 2012
We took the boys to their first ABQ Balloon Fiesta.  It was such a wonderful family vacation.  Grand Stan and Taffy came along so we had the entire family together for a long weekend.  On Friday we took the train to Sante Fe and had lunch in the square.  On Saturday, we woke up really, really early and headed to the balloon fiesta.  The weather was perfect!  The boys had a blast!

we even made time for some family photos in front of Grammy and Bobpa's wildflower garden!

Welcome Baby Eli

Baby Eli Christian Robson arrived on October 1st.  I got to hang out with Anna all morning while we waited for her brother to arrive.

Duncan and Bowen got to go to the hospital with us just minutes after he arrived and they LOVED going to the hospital to visit Baby Eli!

In September we started back at Riverbend Christian School!  Duncan is in the 3 year old MWF class with Ms. Jessica and Ms. Debbie and Bowen is in the 18-24 month MWF class with Ms. Margaret and Ms. Mijanou.  They were both excited about their backpacks and lunch boxes and did great on the first day of school.  They both had a few friends from last year in their class.  When I picked them up from the first day they were so excited that they got to play with each other on the playground.  The teachers said they were so excited to see each other!

Our cousin Regan was nominated for Westlake High School Homecoming Queen so we went to the Friday night Homecoming Football game vs. old rival Bowie.  They boys had a lot of fun watching the game and seeing Regan.

Wow...I didn't realize how far behind I was!  I have been so busy with selections on the house as well as school starting and volunteering at the boys' school that I have let my pictures fall behind...

In August we went to the Turner Ranch in Blanco, TX for a fun playdate with our friends Sam and Baby CC Sierra, Cooper and Baby Offield and Campbell and Baby Georgia McQuire.  We fed the horses carrots (Bowen ate the carrots himself) and got to swim and have a picnic for lunch.  I think their favorite part was getting to all ride in the back of mommy's car without being in their seats :)

We got to take a ride in Casey's boat on Lake Austin, but our luck - we picked one of the only rainy days this summer and had to hurry back to Mimi's house just before the big storm.

Lawson spent a few days with us and we had a great time going to Hoppin' house!

June 2012 pics

Our summer has been very busy and we have spent a lot of time in the water - pool, lake and ocean!  The boys love the water. 
In June we went to JW Marriott in San Antonio with Mark, Larissa and Kinsley (18 months) Sutton, celebrated Father's Day on Lake Austin with Kyle and the Robson's, and went to Port Aransas with the Robson's!

Our house

We broke ground on our house in January.  Here are some current pictures...

San Diego

We took a long weekend up to San Diego for Lauren and Miguel's wedding.  Grammy and Bobpa met us there and we went to Stone Brewery, San Diego Zoo, the beach and the hotel pool.  What a fun weekend!

Can't believe Duncan is already 3!  This is the first year he really knew it was his birthday and that means presents, cake and party!  When he woke up on his birthday he found this...his new bike!
 he had a party at school where he got to wear the birthday hat, sit in his special chair and mommy and daddy came for cupcakes!

 Then we had all his friends to a pool party at Lost Creek Country Club. "under the sea theme"

Daddy, Duncan, Bowen, Anna and Marky Marc

Christmas 2011

Duncan's class Christmas party.

 Duncan wasn't thrilled with Santa - I wasn't expecting Bowen to be OK with him.  We got to ride Santa's train after this and Santa gave Duncan a candy cane.  When anyone asked Duncan what Santa brought him for Christmas he responded - "candy cane"!
