Kate's surgery

Kate had her tonsils removed this week.  Doctor said she was a star patient.  
Here she is before surgery at Texas Children's.

 Here we are in recovery.  
She loved to watch the Nurse put her medicine through her IV. 
 and then she slept...
 and slept...if you notice, Woobie also has an IV in her hand just like Katherine.
But when she was awake, she insisted that she be wheeled around in a wagon all over the second and third floors of the hospital.  Everyone knew who she was by then end of our stay.  Happy and smiling, she was talking and saying hi to everyone.
 As Katherine made her hospital rounds, Nicholas lounged in her reclining bed and loved the bed side coloring table.

All Aboard!

All Aboard!  
Before anyone entered the train, the Conductor let Nicholas start the trip off with a loud "All Aboard!".
Just like in the Polar Express, the conductor punched an "N" and a "K" into their tickets.
He had so much fun, he exhausted himself.  Good thing Nana was there to cuddle with.

Yee Ha

Nicholas in his Prowler.  He had a great time. 
I think he has the need...the need for speed!

 Kate had no problem staying on for 8 seconds.
Look at that technique!

Oh Deer

It's becoming Christmas Season and I am so excited!
I just love this time of year.
Possible Christmas Card Pictures??? Maybe.
Could the kids be more excited? **snicker**

Butterflies (take-2)

Butterflies - take 2. 
This time we left Nana and Nic (who was napping) in the car. 
Kate and I had a girl date and had so much fun. 
It is amazing what a good night sleep and a nap can do for ones fun level. 
We might even go back again on Monday!

Happy Birthday 2

We spent their birthday night at a water park resort.  
The kids had so much fun.  
We can't wait to do it all again tomorrow!
Tomorrow is the pool party. We can't wait!

Happy 3rd Birthday!

I know everyone says this, but I can't believe it has been 3 years. I love you so much Nicholas and Katherine. I couldn't imagine my life without your smiles, laughs, kisses, and tears. I love you both so much.

Butterflies Everywhere

Our first day on vacation and we went to the Butterfly Palace.  
Nicholas had a great time.  
Katherine...well, I'm hoping she has a better experience next time.  
She was a little afraid of the quantity of butterflies.

Hula hoop master

I know this is a costume spoiler, but I can't resist to show off Kate's hula hooping talent.
My little allstar :). I'll be sure to get video next time. And wait till you see Nic's new skill...stay tuned (I don't want to spoil it).

New play zone

It's that time of year again. Time to purge the old toys to make room for the new.
The kids are getting older which means toys get both bigger and smaller. To accommodate (i.e. not look at) the big stuff, we moved the couches forward a bit and voila! An instant play place that is ready for new toys.

Jack O' Lanterns

It's Jack O' Lantern time!!!  The kids picked out their pumpkins today and were so excited about carving them...and then it came time to clean out the pumpkin.
 I set up the plastic pool, took off their clothes and to my surprise...The kids were completely grossed out!  They wouldn't even touch the seeds.
 In the end, the Jack O' Lanterns turned out great.
 N for "Nicholas" (or Nest, which is what they kept saying)
 K for "Katherine" (or Kick, which is what they kept saying)

Roger Dodger

While it is always fun to see other team's baseball stadiums, nothing compares to Astros (Minute Maid Park).

Kate's first haircut

Ok, so it was more of a trim. 3 yrs old she finally needed a style, and oh how cute! She loved every minute of it.
