It's the uniform......

Tyson joined Cub Scouts this year and is LOVING it!  He's attended the first couple Den and Pack meetings.  He's really looking forward to the family camp out next month.  This is something Tyson and Paul can do together.  I don't know too much about it yet, but for now all I know is that Buddy is a Bear in Den 5, Pack 90 and he looks SUPER CUTE in his uniform!!!

Proud of these two......

These next pictures are very special to me!  Both for very different reasons......

August was a pretty rough month this same time last year for Mom.  She was starting her last round of chemotherapy and it was definitely taking it's toll on her physically and emotionally.  To see her smiling and looking this fabulous really puts things in perspective. 

 Now Jenn.........I'm proud of her too.  If you follow this blog you can see there aren't a ton of pictures of Jenn from the last few years.  But she's been working really hard to change her eating habits and become a healthier person by exercising daily.  Jenn has lost 35 pounds and that is amazing!  And I couldn't be more proud of her.  I love these pictures of us!!! And I love that she wants her picture taken again!

Proud of you Mom and Jenn!!!!  Love you both!!!!

90 Years!

When Mom told me that Grandma was turning 90 and there was a lunch birthday party being planned I knew we had to go.  Luckily Paul's schedule allowed us to leave around noon on Friday and make the drive to San Antonio for a super quick weekend.  While driving down we explained to the kids that we were going to "my grandma's" birthday party.  And that she was turning 90.  Naturally that was difficult for the kids to grasp.  Tyson had been around Grandma a few times but Em only as a baby. We also explained there would be lots of people they may not recognize giving them hugs. 

 This is what 5, 65, and 90 looks like!
