Dakota's Ear Tags

Here is the update on Dakota's surgery. Last week, she had surgery to remove two ear tags.
This was what they looked like before surgery...

And a week later this is what her ear looks like.

This was at her one week check-up. All smiles! She didn't like wearing the arm braces and the second day, after surgery was the hardest. She actually tore the sleeves off and touched her ear, removing all the glue. Luckily, she didn't do any serious damage.

I'm gonna miss nibbling on her tags.

It Finally Happened...

Cheyenne is six years old and finally lost her first tooth!
It's been loose forever and she finally pulled it. There was a tooth growing right behind it, that's how long she waited to pull it.
She's so excited!

Christmas Eve

This afternoon, Cheyenne and I went to Texas Ballet Theater's The Nutcracker at Bass Performance Hall. Now, we are in the Christmas spirit. We had planned on going to Christmas eve church service, but Chey got nauseous in the car and threw up twice.

To help her tummy feel better we made cookies???? Dakota was really getting into it.

Chey will be alright, once we got home from the ballet she was feeling 90% better.
Okay, goodnight! Gotta go to bed, before Santa gets here!
Is that Chey's naughty face?

Enjoying the Season

Hi! I hope you all had a good weekend! I'm enjoying the Christmas decor. In the entry way of our home, the girls and I set out the Christmas village. The decor is within Dakota's reach, but she's really not interested in messing with it…thank goodness.

This past weekend, we went to the local Christmas Tree lighting and fireworks show.

I love shopping at Trader Joe's this time of year, they have delicious treats.

Saturday, I met a soon to be nursing graduate at the water gardens. I took her senior portraits. I'm still working on them, but once they are done, I'll post a blog on my website

Here's a random picture of Chey. I was working in the office and she said…hurry, take picture of me! Ok, sure.

Monday, I got a new camera -- so I spent a few hours playing with it. I like how I can control it using an iPad or phone.
