the new blog!

I just want to say that I am sorry that it has been over a year since the last post!  

So just for fun here are some pictures!

 he really didn't know what he was doing!

He's a cutie! It's hard to believe that it has been three and half years since we first started this blog! I like to go back to the beginning and read all of the sweet comments that were left! I can not even began to tell you how thankful we are for each and every one of your prayers! Sadly though, this will be the last time I post on this blog. (I guess since its been over a year its not really that sad) I decided to start a new blog about me! Well not really about me but about the things that I like and the things going on in my life! I am excited to see where God leads me on this blogging journey and I would love for you to come along with me!

The last time my parents were in town we took a short trip down to Houston. We really had a great time! We went to the Downtown Aquarium and the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch and then we went to a baseball game. The Houston Astros (Chris' favorite team) played the St. Louis Cardinals (the Stater Family's favorite team) and of course we had a good time especially since the Cards won! Here are some pics from the Aquarium-

Marker Boy

One of my favorite children's authors is Robert Munsch. I have almost his whole collection of books. He writes very whimsical funny stories, all except I'll Love You Forever. I'm still not sure where that one came from but I love it too. One of the class favorites was Purple, Green and Yellow.

 It's about a little girl named Brigid and the coloring markers she begs her mom to buy her. Mom is against the idea as she "Knows what kids do with markers. They color on the floor and the walls and themselves." I won't spoil the story for you but it is a delightful tale and I highly recommend it but for children five and up as younger children would only get more mischievous ideas from the book.

That brings us to today. I got an email from Lavonna titled "Little Marker Boy." I wasn't sure what the reference was too. My first thought was Little Drummer Boy, but the Robert Munsch book was in the back of my mind. I clicked on the attachment and this is what I saw.

Bryson, Little Marker Boy!

I sure hope those markers are not like the ones in the book, "super, indelible, never wash off until you're dead and maybe longer coloring markers."

 Like the commercial says, "Where is your mother?!?!?"
