Great idea!

Yesterday as I was blogging about something or other, I got a notification from Blogger about a new site they're partnered with.


It's a little site that takes your blog and makes it into a book! You can get it in either hardback or paper, and you can have your entire blog published or just an excerpt. Aaaaaand it's super easy to use and they do all the messy formatting FOR YOU!

I personally am no stranger to book publishing, as I've done many in the past, but this site takes like, oh 90% of the work out of it. Hopefully it's still around in a few years when I get ready to publish all this for Aubrey. Talk about your cheaters' scrapbook, haha!

Anyway, just wanted to pass it along to any who may not have seen it yet. :)

Have a great day!!

Feeding time!

Feeding solids has been quite the experience so far... Aubrey doesn't always love to eat what's being served up, but she doesn't miss an opportunity to stick her hands in the bowl, or wipe what's on her mouth all over her face, LOL!

Today I decided to give her her own spoon, in hopes that she might feel a little more involved, and a little less like making a huge mess. It seemed to work for the most part...

Look at that! She figured out how to use it "right"!

I uploaded a little video of feeding time for everyone, I hope it works. She was making me laugh so hard with all her little grossed out faces!

Visiting Daddy for lunch...

Aubrey and I are so lucky that we get to have Daddy home 3 days a week. We love having him around (even if he's working outside) because that means lots of extra hugs for us! However, having him all to ourselves for 3 days in a row seems to make us miss him more when he's gone to work.

Sometimes we have to remedy that little problem with a trip to see him for lunch! See how Aubrey loves seeing her Daddy unexpectedly in the middle of the day? LOL

You think they love each other? ;)

New Blog!

Hey all! As you know, I've been tirelessly working on my new business venture for the last few months. Since I was having trouble seperating the "work" and the "personal" side when dealing with this blog, I decided to make a dedicated blog just for my business. Here it is:


Go check it out, become a follower and tell your friends! I'm pretty doggone proud of myself because I designed and created my new blog completely from scratch to match my store, my business cards, and all my other media. Feedback is always appreciated too!!

Halloween 2010

Happy Halloween from 
Jerry, Rach, Aubrey and Tina!

This year, we went with the pirate theme again, since we had so much fun decorating for the trick-or-treaters last year. Here we are, the pirate, his wench, our parrot and the pirate-dog, LOL! We didn't take Aubrey trick-or-treating because, well, what does a 4 month old need with a bucket full of candy? LOL She was SO adorable dressed up as our little parrot, everyone who came by thought she was just so cute.

and of course Tina was none too happy to be dressed up! LOL

There weren't as many kids as last year it seemed, but I think that mostly had to do with the fact that Halloween fell on a Sunday. But, we had plenty of trick-or-treaters, and even had some surprise visitors! Steve, Jamie, Dane (dressed as a ceiling fan) and Emma (the ladybug) came by to see the decorations and let us load up Dane's bucket with candy!

Daddies loving on each other's baby girls :)

Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween!!

Pumpkin Patch!

Well, it's fall and you know what that means... PUMPKINS!! :) We took Aubrey to the pumpkin patch the weekend before Halloween, and she was just too precious. I don't think she knew what to make of all the huge piles of pumpkins everywhere, but she really seemed to like it.

Fall in Houston is pretty warm, and even though the day started out overcast, the clouds cleared and it got bright and hot quick! Aubrey was a good sport with all the photos, despite the heat and and the bright sun, but she was totally sacked out by the time we got to the train ride, LOL. I'm sure she'll have much more fun next year!
