Family Photos

Hard to believe how big these little guys are getting!

Alex is 5 and so big now....and he looks just like Daddy.

Ben is 2 and still the easiest kid to ever grace our family.

 Henry is 3 and is my most expressive child - oh my, the number of his facial expressions!

 This year Mommy is actually in the family photo - a true Christmas miracle!

 Big Brothers.

 All Three.

 Just before the wrestling match began!

Merry Christmas to all!  From our family to yours.

My Boys

So thankful that I get to be Mommy to these little boys...  
It's my favorite and best assignment in life.

 I have never really been that successful at keeping green things alive.  Talk to me about little people, yes.  Green things, no.  But perhaps this is changing.  I planted a whole box of basil from seed (with my husband's help...because he's the gardener around here!) earlier this year and it has done beautifully!  I am so excited because it is now starting to self-seed.  A giant step towards being a successful herb gardener. =)  I am thankful for this little box of basil because it is the final piece of my homemade pizza each Thursday night.  Each time my boys walk by the box they take a big sniff and declare, "mmm...smells like pizza!!"

Ah...the small joys of a beginner gardener and wannabe chef. =)

Big, Bigger, and Biggest

Seriously, when did my little boys get so big?!
Love these little men!

 One of the things I love about Houston is that we have a year round growing season.   Some things die in the winter, but they come back very early due to the lack of freezing temperatures.  That means we get an early, beautiful Spring.  Here are a few of the Spring snapshots from our yard...
 We picked and ate our first strawberry yesterday...the first taste of Spring!

The lime and lemon trees are blooming. 

The first leaves on the crepe myrtle.

 More citrus blossoms.

 Baby lemons!

 Baby limes!

Happy Spring!

Baby Ben is two.
Here he is with his birthday pancakes.
We spent the day in Houston playing at parks, having a picnic with Daddy, and eating treats.  Yay for Spring Break + Birthdays!  We ended the day at Jason's Deli with pizza and ice cream for Ben.  A happy day for a two year old!
We love you, Baby Brother!

My sweet Henry Hubs is 3 years old today.  
Oh how I love my little middle man!
