Arrion's Birthday Celebration Day, a little early


Arrion's Birthday Celebration Day, a little early


You may have seen this on Facebook, earlier, today. Lots of folks did. Thanks!  ;-)


Came home and had birthday cake and presents. Half white cake, half chocolate.


With Kaylee, Happy Birthday!


Ben and Bill had the cameras, today. Texas football playing Kansas State tonight, as I'm doing this.


From last night, Alex really likes to play the Game of Life. Arrion won (I got her off to a winning start, while she was putting Kaylee to bed...) ;-)


We had watched Kaylee's dance recital DVD earlier. Then, on more than one occasion, she danced for us, in different costumes. The music was off the iPad, through the TV stereo. She is very improvisational!  Fun!  ;-)


This is her "Bumblebee" costume from the recital.


Later, Alex and Kaylee danced together. Neat! Also, great photo of west wall, new paint, and new photos on the wall.

It was/is another great day!  ;-)

Arrival in Austin


Arrival in Austin



I didn't even have the luggage in the house, and Kaylee was taking movies on the iPad and showing Grandma... her favorite music, and all. Note the new wall cover... and, the couch is now on the left wall, as you walk in from the front door.

Here is an Oops photo of Alex... I just took one... Sorry. He is showing me his Scout badges, and I didn't take a second... I was paying attention to his stories! He was full of information about school and his activities.


Actually, this is in on Ben and Arrion's new king-sized bed, as well. Nice re-do's in the house.


The new chair in the living room being demonstrated by Arrion. Note the new blue walls and the white curtain on the doors. Much more open and bright in the living room, now. Neat! More to follow,  I assume.

It was another great day to be alive!  ;-)
