About Me

My photo
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.

Snow Days - SEVERAL snow days

The majority of us scattered through the United States have been snowed in (besides you all in LA, Trinidad and Zambia - hope you all enjoyed your sunny beautiful weather (said with a slight sarcastic tone)). Actually we had a lot of fun hanging around the house together. Reagan worked from home all week. He took little breaks throughout the day to join us in our shenanigans. Surprising we didn't take a ton of pictures this week but here are a couple. Hope all of you have stayed warm and safe this week!

Chocolate chip cookies!
And chocolate kisses
Playing with flashlights and bubbles in our "fort" aka dinning table with blankets thrown over it.
Climbing into her fort. We added some Christmas lights to make it more homey.
Shutting the "door" on Annabell
She took off to play in the backyard
Rollin' down to the creek at the end of our street

This is how you make a snow angel
"This is fun!"
A mini-me snow angel made by a real live angel!
Teaching her how to make snowballs to throw at Daddy.
Sidenote: This is right before C decided she didn't want to keep her gloves on but still wanted to play in the snowball fight. This ended in freezing cold fingers, lots of tears, crying, looking confused down at her hands and me holding a screaming child all the way up the block and several minutes after getting home.
Nothing a little hot tea, cherry turnovers and Ice Age the movie couldn't fix.
This was the sunset view out our laundry room window. I thought the sun through the trees were pretty.
