It has finally happened...

Life as we know it will soon be changing! The Lady Bug is starting to take steps. She has been pulling up since the first time we put her in her crib.
She has been crawling for a while now.

She even started standing on her own without holding on to anything at 9 months. Now she has finally started to do it... take those first few steps without holding on. She has been taking one or two for a few weeks here and there.

Finally she is getting pretty brave and actually taking more of them and doing it more often. So watch out world cause here she comes! On another note I can't believe she will be a year old in just a few short weeks. Where did the time go?

Merry Christmas Card 2011!

We usually do our Christmas Card photo taking on Thanksgiving, but not this year! I was so far behind schedule we didn't take pictures until 12-15! It is any wonder that we got cards done at all. We had a fun mini photo shoot in front of our tree. Hope you like.

Dickinson Christmas Parade

This is the second year we have gone to the Dickinson Christmas Parade! It is great. This year was a little chilly which is nice in December. We had some hot chocolate and watched the floats and got candy.

Best of the Best Tournament

The Boss just moved up to yellow belt in karate and has been very excited about it. This weekend we had a second tournament. We spent more time practicing at home this time. The first time he was very timid in the ring. In class he has to go against the older kids because they go by height. You would think this is a good thing and will help him eventually but he is getting a little discouraged about not winning at sparring. We try our best to encourage him to just try his hardest and be proud. The tournament this weekend was a best of two matches. If you lost the first you got a bronze medal, if you won the first but lost the second you got a silver medal and if you won both you got a TWO FOOT Trophy. All the kids wanted one of those trophies. We gave the Boss some extra mojo with a couple of temporary tatoos. He did so much better this time. He was much more aggressive. I have watched the video a couple of times and I am very proud of him. He did so well. Unfortunately the other boy got lucky and landed 1 more kick than he did and he lost out on the trophy. Lets just say he was very disappointed but nothing a little pizza couldn't fix. He is ready to start fresh in January.

Waiting his turn to be placed in a ring.

The boy he would end up sparring with.

Starting to get his gear on.

Ready and waiting.

USM - Conference USA Championship

Today we went to the C-USA Championship football game against University of Houston. It was a great game Southern Miss won. UofH was ranked #6 and would have gone to a BCS game if USM wouldn't have won. It was the Lady Bug's first football game and it was a great one.
