Timmy misses his cousins

So, the other night, Timmy was up in the middle of the night. He had a hard time going back to sleep, so I went ahead and got up with him for a bit. While I'm in the bathroom, I hear a completely silent house.... then...
I am Timmy Michaew Fwach (He decided to skip the l's)
Oo aw Hawmomy Michaew Fwach
Oo aw Ian Michaew Fwach
{surprised voice}: Oh! ooooo aw Whitney! Michaew Fwach
{a pause}
Where is Cwaire???? Cwaire is missing!!!
{sad voice}: Poow Cwaire.
Dere's Hawmomy an Ian an Whitney!
I am Timmy Michaew Fwach....

I was laughing so hard, I couldn't come out of the bathroom for a few minutes. We spent a couple minutes trying to find Claire's picture, but we couldn't. We found it this morning near our bed, and got to laugh again at the missing Claire, and thought we'd share it with y'all! :)

Timmy often asks to go to Harmomy's house, and Whitney's and Claire's house. It just seems to wilt him when we have to say "no" or it will be a really long time before we see Harmony again, but we still get to see her pictures while she's gone. The pictures really help him :)

Timmy (at last)

Here's a shot of Timmy with his Daddy getting ready to watch the aforementioned show.


The kids (all 3 but Timmy isn't pictured cause he was asleep on the picture-taker's shoulder at the time) really enjoyed watching their Grandpa in the CVC Music Theater performance of Suessical.

Afterwards, they had a good time playing tag in the courtyard with several of the other children who had been to see the play.

The Big Game

Here are Adam and Abigail at the Texas v. Baylor Game last Saturday! We had a really great time. At first we were a little worried that the game was going to be boring when Texas took a commanding lead in the first few minutes. But the game was actually quite exciting. Baylor even took the lead for a short time.

We splurged big time, buying food and drinks and really "doing it up right"

Even with LOTS of sunscreen Stephanie still managed to put a little red on her chin, but fortunately it was nowhere near as bad as last time.

Final Score: 45 - 21

Humongous thanks to "Gramps" for the tickets!!! It was a wonderful time.

We also got to visit again with our Mennonite friends in Austin after the game which was also a restoring blessing. Daniel and I took the small kids to the park where we could watch them and talk, while the women and big kids had Bible class.
