Meeting Jacob...

My friend Jerica had her second baby boy last Monday. We were all sick around our house last week/ weekend so we just got to meet him yesterday.
He is beautiful and doing great! Jerica is going to be a champ at being a mom of two! Also, we are so sad that they are moving to Oklahoma!!!

Anna Lou checking out Baby Jake. I missed several photo ops of them, but this is the best I got.
Jake looks very happy! AL and Jack love playing together. Jack yells "Anna" every time he sees her!

Easter and more to come from Doha...

Easter weekend was so much fun in Houston! We spent some great time with family celebrating the most important holiday! Easter night I headed from Houston to Doha, Qatar to visit my sister, Wendi, and her family! Wendi's good friend, Shannon (my traveling partner), and I had the best time visiting them all week! I will post pics soon of the trip.
We started the Easter week with our first big "bump on the noggin" at home. I wish the pics showed what the actual egg on her forehead looked like! But that is my girl to have a little bruise just in time for Easter pics. I am sure the first of many to come!!

We attempted to get some bluebonnet pics while in Houston where there are lots of bluebonnet to be found! They didn't turn out great, but that is ok! Here are a couple...

Such squinty eyes, oops! It wasn't even sunny!

We celebrated two Chenoweth birthdays, Maddie and Scott, on Saturday night. Singing Happy Bday to Maddie and Scott.

My camera was unavailable for the early Easter morning pics, but I got some with Mimi's of Anna's egg hunt. I'll have to get those pics from her. She wasn't too sure about the whole thing, but liked shaking the eggs that had goodies inside to make a rattle.

The couple I got before the egg hunt.

At church looking at the pretty flowers. It looks sunny outside, but it was pouring!

After church went to Champions for lunch, which is a Chenoweth Family Easter tradition. It was wonderful, like always! Great food, beautiful decor, great petting zoo and an awesome time with family! Thank you Mimi and PawPaw!

Loving all of the animals.

Big D Race Day!!!

Sunday morning my dad, Dave and I participated in the Big D Marathon. My dad and Dave (my heros) ran the marathon and I did the half marathon. I can't tell you all how proud I am of these two men! They trained so hard for such a long time and did such an awesome job! Dad is 58 and ran like he was 28! Dave trained with Team in Training raising money for the Lymphoma Society. He was honoring his step brother Jay who passed away last fall. What an awesome day it was for our family. And Honey, Mimi and Anna Lou were there to cheer us all on. What great supporters! Here are some pics from our big day at Big D!

6 a.m. leaving for the race.
Almost at to the finish.

A few more steps.

Awkward smile, not sure how I was smiling.

Anna Lou snuggled up.

Anna Lou was such a trooper in the chilly weather.

Finished and glad to see my little darlin'!
