S N O W

We saw a unicorn today! No not really, but it did snow, and those two sightings are just about equal in Austin.  So much so, that everything shuts down, thus the time for this post.  I’m happily sitting in front of the fire, cuddling with the two year old and watching the snow melt out […]

T W O

Bear with my tardiness here, Doiron turned Two over a month ago . . . and since this blog is a supposed scrapbook of his life, it warrants a post, late or not.  It was a fun get together, larger than I realized when planning but so amazing to see just how many people in […]

Lullaby

I always thought putting toddlers down for their naps was supposed to be hard. But apparently D takes after me, sleep is good, sleep is easy. I used to nurse D to sleep whenever I was in charge of naps and bedtime, and there were times he didn’t want to leave my arms, I’m not […]

Port Aransas

We took a family trip to the Gulf Coast a few months ago.  It’s a lovely 3.5 hour drive from Austin to Port Aransas, Doiron did amazingly, in large part due to Cousin Mike riding with us and keeping him entertained.  That and the BBQ pit stop we made in Nixon, not only did they […]
