not quite a sweater

Our Charles loves a good sweater or even a heavy coat.
 Honestly, he gets pumped every time we present one! 

He isn't so crazy about costumes…

Black and White

While Mag was home I made them pose - of course. Don't judge. I can't help it.

My poor kid has complained of an ingrown toenail for MONTHS! But I never paid too much attention to it because he just went on like it wasn't so bad - until it was so bad that he could barely walk!
Needless to say, we had to have it removed. Totally disgusting! He feels so much better now!

She was getting needles out - he was getting nervous!

The Dr. opted to just remove the whole nail
The part in the white box was actually under his skin - no wonder it hurt him so much!
Whoops - sorry Tim!

The State Fair of Texas

Maggie's trip home wouldn't have been complete without a trip to one of her favorite places on earth - fair grounds for the GREAT STATE FAIR OF TEXAS!!

a fletchers corny dog is a must - or two - or three…

fried cheesecake, fried brownies and fried jambalaya. we didn't like the cheesecake, but the other things were fantastic!

tim screaming like a little girl!

So maggie has a huge fan girl crush on Dallas Stars Hockey player, Tyler Seguin. He was one in a crowd of about a million and she spotted him! Tim asked him for a picture and let star struck Maggie step in! What a great brother he is!

 Goodbye Big Tex - until next year! (that is how long it will take us to get over the fried food sickness and save enough money to go again!)

Ethan at Steel City Pops

Seriously, this kid will eat just about anything - but he had definite opinions on the popsicles. He tried each one of the 5 flavors we ordered, over and over!

He DID NOT like the smoked fig and goat cheese as much as Nana and Grandpa did - but he did like the carrot cake and cinnamon apple

 Tims latest musical was Once Upon a Mattress. He played the Prince Dauntless.
This was another production by Imagination Players at Kim Dawson Studios.
They actually gave him a full scholarship to pay for his participation!

So my baby girl is no baby anymore! She is TWENTY ONE!!!
She had a great birthday! 

She is not interested in drinking, so instead of heading to a bar - she jumped out of a plane!

JJ and Maggie feeling a little bit nervous!

Thank goodness she survived - and the next day she boarded another plane - this time, one headed to Texas!
She wanted to surprise Tim, so we kept it a secret. We told him that we had to take Tommy to the airport for a late night flight (midnight) and he totally bought it. As we walked into the terminal, he was playing around - completely oblivious!

But his reaction to her coming home wasn't nearly as good as Stephanie's! 
She had been wanting me to fly Mags home and had even tried to help pay for a plane ticket. She and the rest of the San Antonio fam came to watch Tim perform in Once Upon a Mattress. 
Needless to say - she enjoyed her time with Maggie!
