Cooking and eating cookies with Aunt Kathryn.
- Reagan and Patty Boone
- Plano, TX
- Our first child, Caroline, was born June 5th, 2009. She has completely rocked our world. Patty stays home to take care of Caroline full time. Reagan is a computer programmer at PFS Web. We met Jan 9th 2004. Patty's best-friend from high school, Dixie, slyly matched us up. In July of 2004 we moved to Allen, TX for work. We married Oct 29th, 2005 and moved into our current house in Plano the following April. We also have two furry children named Annabell and Oliver. We love to travel. Throughout our marriage we have taken some incredible trips. We haven't gone anywhere with Caroline (other than Tulsa) yet but we're planning a family trip this summer.

This is the one and only picture I took today (cropped for obvious reasons). I got Caroline ready for her bath this afternoon. After getting her undressed she ran off to admire the Christmas tree. She was so cute standing in front of the tree in her birthday suit. I went to grab the camera and when I got back she was peeing on the floor! This is her "telling" me what she did.
Today we had a special visit from Butch and Janet Berner. I stayed with the Berners at their home in Zambia my first summer in college. This was a very dark and hard time for me. It was the year after Mom pasted away. Dad's health was deteriorating and Grandma Harris was in her final days. I felt alone, lost and orphaned. The Berners illustrated grace to me. They taught me that even in our darkest times there is grace. The dark times are when we can get into our heart, find our inner strength and grow. I only felt love and compassion from them. They let me and the team I was with into their homes and into their hearts. They became our mentors. I love them like family and when they come to the States on furlow they stop in for a quick visit. I was so happy they were able to spend a little time with Caroline.

Great evening filled with friends and family. Had dinner/gift giving with our best couple friends, Randy and Kisha James. After dinner Reagan stayed with Caroline while I went to Mike's (my bro) girlfriend's birthday party.
Leah and her son watching a video her friend made
Birthday decorations. She likes penguins.
I'm sure Mike is going to kill me for posted this picture but it's to cute not to!
I couldn't choose just one picture today. There were to many cute ones. We had a couple friends over this morning to play.
The kids watching the dogs outside
Sweet Luke loves to get his pictures taken
William, Conner and Caroline chilling on the chair
Luke spinning the kids
Conner and Caroline spinning. These two are so sweet when they get together. We hadn't seen Conner and his mom in several weeks but the babies loved on each other like they always do.
Cuddling together talking
December 2nd: Today Reagan goes in for a CT scan. He woke up Tuesday morning with his sinus cavity so swollen I could see it from across the room. The doctor took an x-ray which was inconclusive. The CT scan will show if it's mucus or something else blocking his sinuses. We're hoping it's mucus otherwise he'll have to have surgery to clear out whatever is causing the blockage. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers today. He goes back to the doctor tomorrow to find out the results of the scan.
Saw this a a couple friends blog and thought it was a cute idea. Click on the Photo Project badge above to learn the details. Ever day until Christmas I'll post a photo illustrating the activities we're doing to celebrate this festive time of year. We can't be with all our loved ones this time of year but this will give you an idea what we're up to. I'd love to hear what you all are up to also. If you have a blog join in. If not keep in touch via email, text, phone calls etc. Love you all and happy holidays!!
This "photo" was actually a shot from a video taken on my phone. This is Caroline opening her first gift from her Secret Santa. Our mom's group drew names for the kids to have secret santas. We'll find out in a couple weeks at a play-date who our ss is.
Caroline and I spent 10 days in Tulsa over Thanksgiving. We stayed with Josh and Andrea for the first several days while Tim and Sandy spoke at a church in Sweden. Then we spent the next few days taking care of John and Tamara's dogs while they (and their 4 kids) went to Hawaii. Reagan met us in Tulsa Tuesday night. We had a great time hanging out with family and friends. Surprising we didn't take many pictures while there. Below are some. They got out of order and I'm to tired to reorganize them!

Our last night in town we took C to see Rhema Lights with Katie. If your ever in Tulsa between Thanksgiving and Christmas you have to stop by Rhema Bible College to see their campus at night. The entire campus is covered in Christmas lights (over 2 million lights!). It's beautiful!
