My Daddy Didn’t Raise a Princess

My dad’s memorial service was Friday, December 16th. We opted for a small informal service with family. During the service, guests were invited to share a memory about my dad or just their thoughts about him as a person. As people talked I heard words like kind, love, innovative, meticulous, role model. I had intended […]

Dad’s Video

I have been working on my dad’s tribute video. Hopefully this will be the final version. You can check it out at the link below. Dad’s Video I think he would like it.

I love you Dad

My Daddy

I lost my daddy yesterday, and it just doesn’t seem real or possible to be living in a world without him. Yesterday was supposed to be a happy day and the start of a new life for my dad. After waiting so long for a lung, Dad got the call yesterday morning at 2:00am. It […]

The Christmas Story

Dylan decided he wanted to read to me tonight instead of me reading to him. Here he is “reading” one of his Christmas stories to me. We have only read the story a few times, so I think he did a pretty good job remembering he main points. dylan-reading-the-christmas-story And, on a side note, Dylan […]

Rawr! Rawr!

Kyle decided to surprise me and take Dylan and me to the Chinasaurs exhibit at Fair Park for my birthday on Saturday. Here is a little of what we saw. I have taken the liberty to add in a little narration as well (based on my recollections.) “Rawr! Rawr!” said the T-Rex. “Hold me Mommy! […]

Faux Play-Doh

I bought Dylan some Play-Doh a couple of weeks ago and he really seems to enjoy playing with it. So in the spirit of keeping Dylan happy and occupied this summer, I decided we would try making a homemade version of Play-Doh. We used the base recipe from this site as our guide. We didn’t […]

It is about time…

Wow! It has been quite some time since I posted here, so I thought it was about time! I am not going to even try to update on everything that has occurred since my last post, but I will hit some of Dylan’s highlights and give you an idea of what we have been doing […]

A Trip to the Zoo

I a not a big fan of the zoo… the smells, the crowds, the animals behind bars/fences with people gawking at them, BUT I wanted Dylan to see the animals. He LOVES animals, so we took him to the Dallas Zoo and we had a good time. I can’t even tell you the last time […]

Swimming it Up

Dylan loves the pool. He asks quite frequently to get in the,”Poooo -l,” and to go, “Mim-ming.” He is enjoying swimming more that he is no longer taking swim lessons. He didn’t enjoy the lessons, but I think they helped him learn some basics. Check him out!
