March went by so fast.  Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on…


On March 9th, Sumner got his braces off.  This was a BIG deal!

The transformation that has taken place is amazing!

IMG_5487The orthodontist sent him home with this fun poster and lots of gooey candy

he hasn’t been allowed to eat since the braces went on.


Photo on left= before braces.

Photo on right= after braces.

Period of time between the 2 photos= 2 years.

IMG_5413Sadie got her first cut at the groomers.

If it’s possible, her hair was even softer and fluffier than before.


Adam and I went away for a few days to Austin, TX.

Sad to say that I didn’t take a lot of photos, but we are ready to go back!

It was the perfect getaway!


I didn’t get a lot of photos but I did get one of this!

This was dessert one evening and it was delicious.




Our hotel on a hill.  We had such a relaxing time.


Meanwhile, back in Houston.  Adam’s parents came down to watch the boys while we were away.

They didn’t miss us at all!


We celebrated March Madness in style with these!
And FYI- I took the prize on the bracket contest this year!


Jonah had a HUGE science fair project due after Spring Break.

He had to create a model, display board, write an essay and give a presentation.

He built his model out of a tomato cage & batting and had it spin,

like a tornado would, during his presentation.


He did awesome!

In fact he got the highest score in the class with an almost perfect score!


Easter came early this year. The service at church was wonderful.

We had a fabulous meal together in our new dining room!  More on that in another post.
