About Me

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.

Valentine's Day

Yesterday afternoon we went to our playgroup's Valentine's party. It was a lot of fun and a little bit crazy (25 toddlers, one newborn and a bunch of moms)! All the kids brought Valentine's to exchange with one another and the mom's brought desserts to bring home and share with our hubbies. After the party we met Reagan at his office and he took us to dinner. Then we went home for our own little Valentine's Day celebration.

Last week she painted the Valentine's she gave to her friends
Sunday night I made caramels for the party. I thought this would take about 2 hours. Ugh, 5 hours later at 3am I finished!
Prepping the pans to pour the caramel into
Caramel poured and pieces in the background have been cut and wrapped with parchment paper
Dressed and ready for the party!
Last week our playgroup met to make Valentine's boxes for the kids.
Our hostesses, Rachel and Avery. Did I mention Rachel is due with her second baby next month?

Eating grapes with Parker. She had stolen a few grapes from Parker so I got her a cup!
Sitting with her Valentine, William. These two love each other.
Watching a show with Avery while us moms clean-up.
After dinner we went home and Caroline looked through her Valentine's cards.
"Oh, wow!" - That is one of C's sayings.
Yummy! She partied so hard she lost her shoe!
Reagan opening his new ice-tea maker (that is what he asked for!)
My cute Valentine!
Because we didn't have enough sweets I made Reagan his favorite dessert: a cherry pie.
"I want a bite"

  1. Oh Patty....this blog entry is beautiful. I loved every bit of it. You captured Valentine's Day perfectly...such a magical one at that!
    I can't believe you made homemade caramels...wow. I have been in love lately with "sea salt carmel" anything and looked at your photos in awe of actually making them. Caroline is just so precious and so dear. What a sweet time this is in our lives, huh?
