Reconnecting with Old Friends

It's such a great feeling when you "bump" into an old friend that you have not talked to in ages. Catching each other up on your lives and then boom....all of a sudden it's like you have not been apart at all! That's how you measure a true friendship...if you can pick up where you left off. That has happened a lot me me this past year. In fact, it's happened more this year than it has since I've been out of school. Well, high school that is. There are 3 girls in particular that I have been close with since we were IN school and we pick up quite a bit. Those 3 girls will always be some of my closest friends. In fact, all 3 of them were in my wedding way back when. It would be neat to say it's because we are from a small town, but I know that's not the case.

Happy Easter, Easter Bunny!

Happy Easter, Everyone! We woke up this morning and ran downstairs to see if the Easter Bunny came over night...and indeed he had! Ethan looked through his basket and found coloring books, a Sponge Bob Movie and some candy! We then went outside and had a fabulous Easter Egg hunt.

Afterwards, we went to my parents where he had a HUGE basket waiting for him. It seems that the Easter Bunny visits grand parents houses too! There he got more coloring books, stickers, a Diego movie, Bob the Builder video, a cool cup, candy and tons of other goodie. Boo came over and the boys had a blast going through their stash.

One thing that I miss about living in NC (besides working at Duke) is basketball rivalry. To be frank, Texas just does not have it. Not to the extent that the East coast does. We're a football state, and well, I'm a basketball girl. I do have the Houston Rockets to fill my need, but it's odd to try and discuss the big Duke and UNC game to some one here, and get a blank stare. Heck, some people have never even heard of the Big Rivalry.

Really, there is no point to this post...I am just grumpy because Duke lost today! BOOOOOOO

Soccer Soccer Soccer!

Well, I must say that this weeks soccer game went much better than his first one. I have to thank his actual practice for that though... We didn't get rained out of either. His coach is really good with the kids and Ethan listens so well to him. They played on 2 fields at the same time, so he had a lot of playing time. Let me tell ya, he took a GOOD nap afterwards! Anyway, here are some to enlarge. Enjoy and love to you all!
