You are officially not a baby anymore. Landry, my dear, I remember asking so many people that I didn't know if I would have enough love to give to the next child and boy was I wrong! You have tested my patience more in this first year than I ever thought possibly, but the love I feel for you is unimaginable. You have been a true blessing to our family! We love you so much!

Happy Birthday my sweet Landry!

Happy Halloween

Last Friday we went to the Pumpkin Patch. You will notice by the photos how hard it is to snap a 'good' picture of both of your kids looking at the same time! 


Yep... see Landry. 


I think this might be the best one... lol


Finley needed to pull her sister in the wagon and did a fine job!


Landry just kicked back and enjoyed putting her feet up!


And then decided she needed a bite of her mini pumpkin!




She insisted on getting the biggest one out there




And then to end our sweet Halloween, these munchkins came to see me at work today! 
Love my babies! 




Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!

Daddy, I think you are sick

Last Friday night Finley insisted on 'checking out daddy'. He may have been overly full due to the delicious cheese ravioli I had just made for dinner and he was not moving on the couch. Finley said to me, "momma, I think daddy is sick." I said, "Hmmm,, ya think so?" Well a few minutes later I came around the corner to this...

She was carefully checking his temperature... 



His feet and knees...


and his heart rate. 


Such fun moments in the Morris house. be.still.my.heart. I love this kid.

Fire station fun - Hutto Hippos

Sunday Fun-Day at the fire station. We packed a lunch and ventured out on this cool, rainy morning. I call it let's go to the fire station and get the girls tired and come home and take a BIG LONG nap! 





We ran around outside, in the bay, around the fire trucks and around the hippo. We then played hide and go seek. It was a good time for all and I would say it was a success. Both girls had 3 hour naps when we got home!

2013 Special Olympics Fire Truck Pull

This past weekend we went to the Dell Diamond for the Annual 2013 Special Olympics Fire Truck Pull. The girls were such troopers while we sat out in the Texas heat and watched our favorite person and his crew pull a 77,000 pound fire truck.













Here is the video of the second pull. I forget how far they had to pull, but there were 12 guys and they pulled that FT in 17 seconds. It was so cute to see on the little's yell and scream for their daddy's!

They won - below is their scorecard to prove it!


And then we had to ride the Kiddie Express




Finley was so proud of her daddy - I think she just wanted his metal! Anyway, it was a good time had by all.



Great job to ALL that participated and can't wait to go back next year!
