So, here we go-
This is Sandy, our 11 year old Lab:
Chip and M hanging out at our pool. I love having a pool.
Sandy has been in the pool more than I have:
She gets tired easily:
Love the hair, G:
T finally learned to jump from the diving board:
We have ducks that come up to the edge of our property:
This is K, feeding the ducks. Her mom Gina is my best friend, and they came for a visit last week:
J and K:
It is so peacefull here. I don't think I ever want to leave.
My kids are quite slow when it comes to losing teeth. G is in 2nd grade and has only lost two, until last night.
Here is G trying to pull out his own tooth, with no success:
Morgan thought she could do it:
She tried again, a bit harder:
"That tooth is weally stuck in there!"
T, looking cute. T always looks cute, but hates it if you say that:
Success! Now is that an adorable smile, or WHAT? And you should hear him talk. I keep asking him questions, just to listen to him mispronounce his TH's and S's. "Garrett, what day did we go to Walmart?" "I sink it was ssssaturday."
So the tooth fairy flew in last night, and in a surprising and bold move, left SIX dollars under his pillow (she was obligated to, considering that is the amount she left just last week when K lost her tooth while staying here). G, however, said he would rather have his tooth back, and so tonight we are hoping she'll swap back. I kinda think she will, considering the amount she paid for it. She is probably suffering from buyers remorse.
So there you have it, some images from our first few weeks of life in AZ. I'll get some of D soon, as soon as I see her for more than 5 minutes.

I wasn't sure I'd be in San Antonio long enough to do this session, but luck was on my side. My next door neighbors Ashley and Curtis gave birth to their second daughter, and I was able to do a quick session just a day or two before we moved out, my last one in SA.
When I last saw her, "L" was only a few days old, but already proving to be a quiet and easy-going baby. I always say that if you have two kids, you get one of each, once quiet and reserved, and one NOT. It looks like that is the case here as well, because her older sister is a spunky and sassy little thing, who I just adore.
Ashley, I know you have been waiting WEEKS for these images, so I won't make you wait any longer. I'm sure she has changed already-here is a peek of her first few days:
This is how she looked as soon as I arrived, in an adorable bonnet (her not me!).
These monkeys caught my eye:
A quick bottle:
And its off to dreamland for this little one:
Once she finally fell asleep, I don't think anything could wake her:
I'm so glad that I had the chance to meet her before we left, and I'm sad to know that she'll be much bigger the next time I see her. Take good care of your girls, Ashley, and hopefully we will see you sometime soon!

The kids started school this morning, and can you believe I forgot my camera again? Every year I seem to be the only mom without one. What a dunce. I'll take it with me tomorrow, the pictures actually might look better anyway because this morning the kids all looked like they were going to throw up from the anxiety of a new school. At least no one cried.
I wish I had some pictures to post of the house, but photography and blogging have been WAAAY down at the bottom of my list. That should change here very soon, but first I have to prepare for our very first guests to our new home. Last week I was informed by Gina, my BFF, that she and her ENTIRE FAMILY will be here TOMORROW. She said that she doesn't mind if the boxes are still out, but there is no way on earth that I'm going to let her see the house the way it is at this moment. In fact, I really wish I could buy the new furniture that's on my wish list NOW, like today. But I'll do my best to focus on the joy of spending time together, and I promise not to stress over what still needs to be done as far as decorating. Hard, but I think I can do it!
