Viva Las Vegas

For our first real outing without Kate, my parents babysitted while Josh and I went to his office's end-of-year party at the Bob Bullock TX State History Museum. The party was "Las Vegas" themed, and they hired an Elvis impersonator who was terribly cheesey--but I guess you'd be hard-pressed to find an Elvis impersonator who wasn't. I had a blast singing along to all the Elvis songs, and Josh had to explain to his coworkers why his 29-year old wife knows the lyrics to practically every Elvis song ever recorded. (When I was a wee lass, my parents put their old 8-track player in my room and the only tapes they gave me were Elvis and the Monkees, so guess what got played over and over and over...) We of course had to take a picture with the King, or pseudo-King.

Babies, Babies, Everywhere

I'm pretty behind on blogging, so I'm going to try to play catch up with several posts. About three weeks ago, our friend Kendal had a baby shower and another friend, Charis, and her baby boy Colt came in town for the shower. I was happy to have them, as well as Sunee and Adelaide, over for lunch. Here's a group picture of us moms (and one mom-to be):


We attempted to get a photo of the three kiddos, but of course it was like herding cats to get them to sit still & smile at the camera. Here's video of the photo shoot fiasco:

6 Months Old

It's so hard to believe that our little baby is now half a year old! She turned 6 months on Nov. 3rd, but I've been neglectful in my blogging. The stats: she weighed 18 lbs., 2 oz. and measured 26 1/4 inches long at her 6 month well check. 75-90th percentile. We're blessed with a healthy, happy baby. Here's some pictures of the not-so-little cutie pie.
