Marisa's Confirmation

Yesterday Marisa received the sacrament of Confirmation. It was such a beautiful and moving ceremony. We were very blessed to have so many family members come down from Dallas. My sweet sisters, Rosemary and Camille drove down with my parents. My cousin Adam and his girlfriend Liz came and my uncle Kerry and Aunt Linda came up from Austin with my other cousin, Packy. And Frances, my MIL came too.
I didn't take a ton of pictures, but here are some from our day...

Busy Busy Busy!!

OK, it's been forever since my last post. I have had so much going on and I've been a little overwhelmed.
I want to start off by saying how sad we are that our Longhorns lost the National Championship. We were heartbroken that Colt was hurt. And I'm not going to lie, there were some tears. OK, many tears were shed. I have a very passionate boy who takes these things to heart. I love him for that. :)

Now that Reyno has gone back to work, there is so much going on at Ft. Hood. Lots of award ceremonies and many Changes of Command. So I have been down there so much lately.
Both kids are playing basketball, so that takes up a lot of our evenings. Last Saturday Jackson tried out for a select baseball team. Well he made the team and I am very proud of him, but there is a huge time commitment for the players as well as the parents. Lots of traveling!! All I can say is that I am so thankful that Reyno is home. I could not do it without him.

Camille, Gianna, mom and I along with some sweet friends of Rosemary's, are planning her baby shower. We have waited a long to for this, so we are super excited. I can't share any details now, because we want it to be a surprise for her. I know it's killing her, and I love it!!! :)

We have a very special weekend coming up. Marisa is being confirmed. I am so excited for her!!
That's all for now!! Much more to come!!

Go Longhorns

The day is finally here. Our Longhorns are playing Alabama for the National Championship. To say that we are excited is an understatement.
Even the kids at Jackson's school got in the spirit...

The kids had a "dress down" day and of course J and his best buddies had to wear their jerseys.

I really wanted to make it fun tonight, so I decorated a little.

Everybody needs Longhorn shaped rice krispie treats!! :)

H.E.B even had burnt orange and white roses!!! I heart H.E.B!!

I think Jackson was very happy to come home to all the decorations.

Me and my little boy.

We are ready to cheer on our Longhorns to victory!!
HOOK 'EM HORNS!!!!!!!!!

Locks of Love

A little over a year ago, Marisa decided to grow her hair out to donate to Locks of Love. On Thursday we went to see if she finally had the ten inches that they require. She did!!! She was a little nervous to cut it all off!!

Getting ready...

Here we go...

And it's off!!!!

Marisa with Sara Beth and her donation!!
I am a very proud mama!!! I Love you Mo!!!!
