Rodeo Day

We took the kids to the Livestock Show/Rodeo for the first time. It was a very cold and rainy day which was good because it wasn't very crowded but bad because we couldn't enjoy any of the outdoor activities they have for the kids. The girls loved petting the bunnies and seeing the baby pigs.
Look at the chicks!We got a snack right when we got there because everyone was hungry. Mike and I are not sure if they liked the popcorn more than anything else!

A Day at the Park

Mrs. Roemler found this great new park so we have met our playgroup there a couple of times to enjoy the beautiful spring weather.
Surprise! Carter is sleeping!

His sisters were sure this doll would help him stop crying. I'm afraid this is just the beginning for our little guy!

Happy Birthday Anna Lou!

Our niece, Anna, turned 1 on February 19th and we were able to help her celebrate at her ladybug birthday party! We had a wonderful time and loved all the "bug" themed treats!

Family-filled weekend

Our first stop was in Frisco to meet our new niece, Julia Brook Seelman, born February 5th. Nana had been there helping out so we got to see her too. There are now a total of 6 girl cousins and 1 boy.

Our next stop was on the farm in Plano so Mema could meet her great-grandson.
Precious moments - I love you, sis!
Lily had a death grip on Papa. She was not about to get on that horse.
Emery made it on the horse but it was definitely not by choice.
It doesn't appear that the Hall girls have inherited their Papa and Daddy's love of riding...
By the end of the ride Aubrey was all smiles. She cried when she got on the horse and she cried when she had to get off the horse. She still talks about riding horses at Mema's and loves to name each of Papa's horses.

Valentine's Day Activities

The Tuley's hosted a Valentine's Day party where the kids got to make their own heart-shaped pizzas and each family exchanged little treats. Thank you to Shannon for the fabulous individual pictures of the girls (again, Carter slept through most of this one!)
At Stroller Fit, all the mommies and kiddos dressed in red to celebrate Valentine's Day.
Carter is such a trooper riding along in the stroller.
