valentine shoot with nana

here's a cute shot of will and nana. she needed a quick shot of her and will together for a valentine's day project. super cute. speaking of cute, you know what mr. man did yesterday? ok, maybe it's not cute. it kind of is. it's also kind of horrifying, but we'll call it funny since he's four. anyway, we're at a light and a truck pulls up next to us, and without warning, will rolls down the window and yells, "you need to go to the carwash!". brandon is scrambling to roll the window up and lock it. i don't think they heard. anyway, funny but horrifying, right?

Brandon's New Projects

On the Brandon front, all kinds of wonderful things are happening.

#1. He has another new guitar. It's a classical. It's sweeter. Plays nicer. And that's important because he plays it alot. I mean alot. He's playing right now and there's a child physically on his back.
#2. His dream of founding a community garden is coming true. The church is implementing it and Brandon has been working SOOOO hard on it for the last few months. Groundbreaking is this Sunday morning. 8 am. Email us if you want in. There'll be a food drive too.
#3. Spring is right around the corner, and that means cheaper beer, Dos Equis, baby!

So, a big congratulations to Honey!

She likes to Draw

She's been really taken with drawing lately. She spent a huge chunk of the afternoon playing with sidewalk chalk in the driveway. She's really got some patience with it. Really remarkable attention span. And hair also. Isn't her hair remarkable? It is. She got her first set of pig tails last week.

Do you still want to see if it's a month late?

Here's Mr. Man at the Polar Express ride in Palestine, Tx. It was so cool. Magical, really, watching through his eyes. The steam engine was beautiful. They had the dancing waiters, hot chocolate, and the cool Polar Express music. It made you feel like you were really there. And then we went to the North Pole. Santa was waiting on the front porch, waved, and hopped on to give all the kids magic bells.

This is a happy screech from Abby. Thank goodness. She's been in a weird mood lately. This week has been pretty huge on a few levels. On the good side, little missy is opening up, becoming a little more friendly and outgoing. She's really getting some personality. She's started dancing some this week. She loves all her new toys. So all that's great.

On the flip side, she got a massive molar this week. For a few days her gums looked like hamburger meat. Really really brutal. So when the Motrin wore off, she was really really brutal too. Today was entirely Motrin-free, and pretty good. So maybe we're coming out the other side!

And on a completely different topic, I LOVE this dress. You can barely see it, but it's to die for. My cousin, Melissa, has the best taste in baby clothes. I can't wait until it's warm enough to take the coat off so you can see it in it's adorable glory.
