This disclaimer should be given to couples who are toying with the idea of having children:

Warning! Fathers, be aware that your wife will agonize over shelf/cabinet organization, bed linens, lamps, rugs and attempt to have you purchase new carpet, blinds, couches, or anything else that she might think a brand new baby will need in your home.

In the last month I have had a serious case of "nesting." The new couches, blinds, floor lamp, and shelving system look great. The new carpet will be installed on Wednesday. I can't wait. I want to take the day off just so I can start re-organizing closets as soon as it's finished. Please do not stop by this week as I will be checking and re-checking to make sure everything is "in place."

I know this is completely irrational due to the fact that I will be home for 4 months after Luke is born and will be dying for something to do, but I can't help myself. Only 3 more weeks until d-day!!!

Mommy and Me Week

Monday was Mommy and Me day at the Dallas Arboreteum so Jake and I loaded and headed to Dallas. What a fun day we had! I've never been chased so much or been so tired. I wasn't sure we'd actually make it to the car afterwards. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Snow Day

I know this was a week or two ago but I couldn't resist blogging about it now that I have some free time. What a wonderful morning! We woke up to snow outside at 6am. School was delayed by 2 hours and I tried to go back to sleep, but Jake was having no part of it. When we finally got ready and headed out to Mimi's house it was already melting off, but there was still enough for Jake. His favorite new word it "Uh-oh" so he was pointing to everything that was covered in snow he was saying "Uh-oh."

When we arrived at Mimi's Uncle B and G-unit were building a snowman on the back deck. What a great day!!

A Day at the Stockyards

One Sunday a couple of months back we got out of church and it was an absolutely beautiful day so we decided to take advantage and took a short trip over to Fort Worth for the stockshow. We headed down to the stockyards (only to find out that the stockshow actually takes place at the Will Rogers Colliseum in town). While down at the stockyards we did a little walking and happened into this great boot store. Well, with Jake being from Texas and all of 20 months old we thought it necesary to purchase his first pair of boots. I know they don't really go with the outfit, but they were cute and loved the sound they made on the wood floor when he walked. Luckily for us they had a western day at preschool last week so he acutally got some use out of them and really liked them (he wouldn't let me take them off when he got home that afternoon).

So here's a picture of him dressed up for western day at school complete with John Deere pants and his shiny new boots:
