Ready to Run

Miss Olivia ran her 1st 5k at the candy came fun run! We made it a family event, as any good Lawton would do. Kolby ran circles around me and dashed to the finish line shouting , "see ya later mom!" We left feeling sweaty, accomplished, and whistling "Once there was a snowman"...kinda perfect;)

We all fall down

What's this? More leaf pictures? Why yes it is;) these faces radiate joy!

"We make our friends, we make our enemies, but God makes our next door neighbor."

Thats the quote i gave Jim and Stephanie for Christmas this year. Mr Jim has been my husband's neighbor for 20 years now.
Over the last 6 years we've called on them for everything from a ladder to a helping hand during a flood to a babysitter and of course the cliche cup of sugar which in our case happens nearly every Sunday and includes milk, eggs, and butter.
Our Christmas present from them was, quite fittingly, a case of butter and powdered sugar from Costco. For the kids they set up Christmas lights and decor knowing what a scrounge Daniel is ;) Each holiday the kids look forward to the perfect festive shirts Ms Stephanie picks out. We always know our home is safe, our kids are spoiled and our cupboards are full thanks to our awesome neighbors!

Visitin' Dad

We're so proud of Daniel and his new job! Thanks for everything you sacrifice for our family!

H.E.B. equals Mecca;)

Naomi and may or may not have visited the new HEB around the corner not 1 but 2 times on opening day in November. I can't help it! Free samples, yummy pomegranates, and friendly people. Love it;)

Christmas Piano Recital 2012

Being a piano teacher is awesome!
Hearing your students play Christmas songs is pretty sweet!
Seeing your own children perform in your recital is fabulous:)
