Randy's birthday weekend

Friday night we had my office holiday party. We had a great time! On Saturday, Randy and I drove to Salado for the weekend. We walked around the town of Salado and then drove to Temple that night for a movie. We woke up early Sunday morning and I took Randy to get his birthday present. As we drove up to the site, I asked him if he knew what he was doing for his birthday. Just as he was about to say no, the sun moved and he read the sign that said 'Skydive Temple'. Yes, we both jumped out of a plane yesterday morning in the freezing weather. It was the most amazing experience and we can't wait to do it again!

So much has happened since I last posted a blog. Ella started to sit up on her own and last Saturday, she crawled for the first time. It was very special because my Mom was here visiting and got to see her crawl. Now, she is pulling up on EVERYTHING and keeping Randy and I very busy. We believe she is getting her top two teeth in. The past week has be trying at best...

Ella is 5 months old

Ella turned 5 months old on August 9th!! The last picture has the wrong date:-)

Our Wedding Date

Apparently, I forgot what day Randy and I were married. In the "About Us" section, I mention that we were married on May 13th, 2005 and we were actually married on the 14th of May 2005. Thanks to Linda for pointing that out!

Ella's New Tooth

Ella's first tooth finally broke the surface today! She was quite fussy because of it and has been resting for most of the evening. She doesn't really let you look at it. Every time you try to open her mouth to see the tooth, she sticks her tongue out. One down...Nineteen to go...

Ella and Luke Playing

Our Busy Weekend

Randy, Ella, Luke and I drove down to Shiner Friday evening and spent the night with my Mom. It's so nice when we go visit Mom. She loves for Ella to sleep in the bed with her, so Randy and I always get to sleep in on Saturday morning. Well, 7:00 sleep in, if that counts! My brothers and their families came over for an early dinner on Saturday. My neice, Lauren has an interesting creative side. After hollowing out a watermelon, she decided to make a helmet! Sunday morning, Ella decided to finally roll over. She rolled from her tummy to her back. It scared her at first, but once she saw how excited Randy and I were, she started to kick her legs with excitement. Sunday night we had dinner with Randy's family and got to meet BJ's fiance, Bailey. Some of Ella's favorites were there. Her uncle's Jeff and Joseph and Auntie Smell...I mean Bella. It was so nice to finally crawl in to bed that night...

Ella has started teething and let me tell you, it has not been a lot of fun! She has not been herself the past couple of days. The school called me at 4:00 yesterday to let us know that she was running a 100.5 fever and that we needed to pick her up. After giving her Tylenol, her fever reduced to 99.1 and remained there for the rest of the evening. This morning, however, she was running a fever of 100.2. Randy stayed home with her for the morning and by 11:00 her fever was down in the 99's. We decided to keep her home for the rest of the day and let her rest, so I came home and stayed with her for the afternoon. Her temperature has been steady at 98.5 all afternoon although she still feels warm and is extremely restless. She has not had any teeth come through, but you can definitely feel them. And, I hear you go through this EVERY time they get a new tooth. Oh Joy!

I am new to blogging. My cousin, Angie has one of these sites and I always thought it was interesting. After having my daughter, I decided that it would be a good time to have a website that my family and friends can visit frequently to see what new in our lives as well as see how our family is growing. I hope all that visit our site, enjoys our stories and pictures.
