Weekend with Brooks

This weekend we had plenty of time to spend doing our favorite activity…playing with Brooks.  Her mommy didn’t have anywhere to go but we babysat her anyway Saturday night. Baby girl had such a fun time eating cereal, playing with Cooper and her toys, and babbling to us.  She is so cute at this age, I can’t take it!!!

Enjoying her cereal…more please!


Love those baby blues!


Probably the only person on earth who could make me look like I have a tan in January, lol

Such a BIG GIRL sitting up in a cart for the first time!

Baby Mac’s shower

Yesterday was Stephanie’s baby shower for Baby Mac!  We had so much fun planning, prepping and showering Steph and Baby Mac and I absolutely cannot wait for his arrival next month.  Here are a few shots from yesterday:

Cotton Bowl, baby!

Today is a BIG day!  Our Aggies will play the LSU Tigers tonight in the Cotton Bowl and Matt and I couldn’t be more excited for many reasons:

1) Fresh off our 4 years at KHS  where Katy only lost 4 games (yes…4.  Sick, isn’t it?) we went to A&M and watched the Aggies lose almost. every. single. game.  It was heartbreaking, and something we were not used to at the time.  I’m so jealous that these kids who are currently in college get to experience a completely different A&M team, but I am also so proud for our Alma Mater.  Having a team nationally ranked that shares a part of the Big VII south championship and plays in BCS bowl games is HUGE for our school. 

2) Most of Matt’s family cheers for LSU, including our SIL Stephanie, who is an alum.  It is fun for the family to jib-jab at each other.  Plus, the winner gets bragging rights for the next year! 

3) The first two years Matt was coaching at Katy he had the pleasure of teaching these two how to play the game:

Matt has kept in touch with both Trent and T-Fred and I can’t tell you how much it warms my heart to see these two on the field week after week.  Neither had planned to go to college.  Neither had money to go to college.  T-Fred basically raised himself.  Both signed with Texas A&M late in their senior year, a year after Sherman took over as head coach and continued the Aggie tradition of losing another season.  Trent started as a true freshman and was named Big VII Defensive Player of the Week on more than one occasion his freshman year.   Slowly things have turned around for the Ag’s and these boys have lead the defensive push.  The icing on the cake would be for either of them to score a defensive touchdown tonight during the game.  You can bet I will be crying tears of joys for these boys tonight when they take the field.  In addition to Trent and T-Fred, two more Katy boys, Shep Klinke and Don Bishop, will also be suiting up for the Ag’s. 


Go Trent.  Go Terrence.  Gig ‘Em Aggies.  BTHO LSU.
