Hello all! Cliff and I have decided to create a blog, so friends and family can see what we have been up to! Plus, of course, so you all can see pictures of our cute kids. Right now we are living in Marble Falls and Cliff is in his 5th full-time year at Camp Buckner as the Summer Camp Director. He loves his job and all of his counselors. He also really loves playing tennis, fantasy basketball, and the Mavericks.

I am a stay at home wife and mom which I absolutely love! There is nothing better than just taking care of my precious little ones and my dear husband. Right now, I am on a big reading kick. I have been reading through the classics which after being an English minor, never thought I would ever want to do again. Two great books that I have read recently are Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Emily is 2 years old and loves anything Disney and her baby brother Aaron. She is such a joy and a ball of energy. Emily is a night owl. She would stay up until 2am every night if we let her. On the other hand, since she is a night owl that makes her a morning monster. We have to pry her out of bed in the morning, but usually by around 2pm she's in a good mood and ready to play. Right now, we are figuring out how to use the potty. You should see Emily's TT and Poo-Poo dance, she could have a future in We love to laugh at the funny stuff she comes up with, not to mention her amazing ability in pronunciation (especially the word "frog"). We are constantly amazed at how smart 2 year-old little girls can be. Praise the Lord for little girls!

And last but definately not least is our little Aaron. He is 5 months old and weighs 20 lbs which was Emily's weight at the age of 1. We are loving him so much; he's our pride and joy. We love him and all of his rolls that qualify him to play the pillsbury dough boy. The way he looks up at us when he is checking to see who is holding him turns our hearts into mush. The past few weeks we have been working on sitting up. He is getting pretty good at it, but you have to watch his sticker fingers. Anything that comes within an arm's reach is fair game for Aaron's little hands and not to mention his mouth. He also has the most adorable little squeal. When he lets one of his high-pitched squeals out he breaks into the biggest smile that causes his eyes to disappear behind his chubby little cheeks. We couldn't be happier with the precious lives that the Lord has entrusted to us!!
