"Snow day" 2-4-11

We had crazy weather last week. On Wednesday there were rolling blackouts all over Texas that caused our school to close. Thursday was normal, but the news said on Friday an "Arctic Blast" would roll in. School was cancelled again and this is what we woke up to...poor cat was couped up all week. (cold weather = doggy door stays closed)



He seemed pretty interested, so I let him out. What's this white stuff?



It wasn't anywhere near the weather we drove home from the Cotton Bowl in. (on 1-9-11)The following pictures were taken southbound on I35 from south Dallas all the way to HIllsboro, which is on your way to Waco.

"Oh cool, it's snowing!"



"Wow, it's really picked up"





"Please just let us get home!" (luckily there was no ice)



"YAY, we survived" (after this we stopped in West, TX at Czech Stop to get gas...love that place!)

The crib is up!

On January 22 my parents came in town for a 3D/4D ultrasound and to deliver Peyton's crib!

26.5 week shot under the sign that we got in Savannah, GA



Here he is!





We can't really decide who he looks like. Plus since he was only 26.5 weeks, he still has some chubbing up to do. Later that weekend my Mom text me this picture of me the day I was born. Maybe he has my nose?



After the ultrasound we put up the crib. It wasn't too bad, there were just a few phases to getting the job done.



Brody, of course, was a huge help



My Mom...we're debating between calling her Lulu or Lolly



Proud papa



My Dad...he wants Peyton to call him Pop



Sneak preview of the finished product...

A visit from Grandpa

On January 26 & 27 we had the privilege of going to dinner with my Grandpa, who was in town for a Texas Municipal League quarterly meeting. They really know how to eat and have a good time! We felt so welcomed and really enjoyed ourselves.

27 week shot in Peyton's room



While getting lost, I mean driving to the restaurant I snapped this shot of a building downtown.



The first dinner was at the Iron Cactus next to the Mokara Hotel. The food was delicious and they had a dessert sampler bar...yum!



The next day we had dinner at the Little Rhein Steakhouse, a cozy little restaurant that has been around since the 60's. Here's Grandpa enjoying a margarita.



Grandpa is so excited about the baby that he told everyone his great-grandson would be there. I was asked several times where he was and would just point to my stomach ;) He's not done cooking!



thanks Grandpa for treating us! We hardly ever go downtown for dinner and really enjoyed having a nice meal.
