E took his first steps on Thanksgiving day, but with a little bit of practice was really moving his legs on 12/21, he has not slowed down since.

family day

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Patrick had MLK day off so we went to Austin to enjoy some time together as a family
We started at Berryhill, one of Patrick's favorite restaurants, then on to Zilker Park to play on the playground and ride the Zilker Zephyr. We ended our day with some Amy's ice cream.

E just loves hanging out with his Daddy

The train ride was a hit

E may be a percussionist someday
This smile is the best!

new year's eve & my 30th birthday party

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Ashley planned the most fabulous red carpet event I have ever attended (because I attend many)
Patrick and I arrived in a beautiful 1970 white Cadillac with the top down. I was escorted out by a handsome doorman (my Daddy) and pranced down the red carpet to the smiles of my wonderful friends.
As everyone arrived they each paused for a paparazzi pic
Before we went in to get the party started we all smiled together
So many yummy deserts!!
My amazing sissy, she could go into the party planning business.
of course there was karaoke
And, dancing.
Yes, Patrick and Nick were having a running man competition.
My incredible hubby.
Thanks for financing this shin dig
Wow, I do believe I had the absolute time of my life!!!
Cheers, 2010

blanton family Christmas

This year we celebrated with Patrick's family on Christmas Eve, it was perfect. We had a lovely stress free evening. We started with a super dinner at the Stagecoach Inn, and then gifts and hot cocoa at Grandma and Grandpa's.

ugly sweater Christmas party

Can you believe this amazing vest
When Jen asked her Mother if she could borrow this lovely sweater she said "is it ugly"?
Mom said "well, one of the bows doesn't tie anymore":)
