Fruits of our Labor

Yes, they are all wrapped. The purple and blue presents are birthday gifts. :)

Black Friday

Each year NaNa and I tackle Black Friday, literally. After we plan, we shop. And shop. And shop. And shop.

Good news, thanks to Swagbucks and Mypoints, Christmas presents are not only bought, the list is complete, and everything is paid for with gift cards I earned. It's lovely!

However, this is what we came home to after a busy morning shopping.

Both were asleep.

And it made the whole morning totally worth it!

Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, OH MY!

We went to the beautiful Houston Zoo.

We saw this.

And I took a picture of the Daddy and Ladybug in front of the elephants.
But most of the time I was watching this.
Because Ladybug was doing this.

All around the zoo.

Gentoo Penguin

PoPo and Gamma came for a visit.

They took us to the Aquarium at Moody Gardens.

I don't know who was more excited, Daddy or Ladybug?
Emma is the exact size of a Gentoo Penguin.
Family portrait time
PEN-GINs are now all of the center Ladybug's conversations.

Another Fond Farewell

The First Time
Then (March 1st, 2008)
And the Last Time.
NOW (April 19, 2009)
Goodbye, Dear Car Seat. We will remember you well.

And now, onto bigger, better things, such as the new car seat.

You may recognize the picture above, it was taken a year ago. And it is one of everyone's favorites.

In a little over a week, Emma's Entourage (our Family Team) will be participating in the March for Babies walk. March for Babies is an annual fundraiser for the March of Dimes (MoD).

Our family was blessed with the best care and treatments for Emma. March of Dimes helped make that possible.
