Texas Weather

Remember what I said in the previous post about it being such nice patio weather?
Well, scratch that!  It got so cold Sunday.
Despite that, we had a great weekend
Saturday night, we had Dine by Design at church. 
Hilary decorated our table and did an awesome job.
 It looked so good!
My place setting
Love this girl!
Sunday, Landry and I spent the day at my parents house. 
My mom had taped Landry's new favorite show, so this is where she sat with a banana in hand
While Tim and I are on our cruise, my parents are keeping Landry for the week so they decided it was time to upgrade her pack n play to a big girl bed at their house.  We found the cutest little bed and bedding and my mom is going to fix up the room.  Landry did so good and slept the whole night and napped in it without getting up!
Sunday night, we took my cousin Chase out for his 20th Birthday. 
We have discovered that my daughter has a thing for cute blonde boys. 
She loved Chase and kept staring at him, it was the cutest thing. 
Paw Paw went with us and he and Landry were playing peek-a-boo. 
My 82 year old grandfather is not above playing and acting like a 2 year old!
Do you see the look on Landry's face? 
This is what we get when we say "Landry, say cheese"
See what I mean?
She loves him!
I love my Paw Paw so much. 
I have been blessed with 2 awesome grandfathers whom I adore.
Love this boy so much!
I was 10 when he was born, just at the right age to start helping to babysit. 
They lived about 5 minutes from us at the time he was born, so in the summer, I was there daily.
Funny story about me and Chase: When my Aunt Karen went into the hospital to have him, it was the first time I had ever been to a hospital to see a baby being born.  I felt so special that I got to hang out with her and be there right after he was born.  We were sitting there watching tv and I wasn't paying much attention when a baby cried on the TV and I said "Aunt Karen, I heard the baby cry from inside your stomach"!  I had actually thought it was him crying and I could hear him.  Wow!  I wasn't so bright back then!

Happenings lately

I absolutely love this time of year. 
It has been such nice weather lately and awesome patio weather. 
I have sat on a patio twice this week to eat and did not want to leave!
Here are just a few things going on lately in the Smith house
Saturday night we went out to eat at one of my new favorite restaurants.  My parents friends son is the head chef and recommended we try it and it did not dissapoint.  If you live in the Dallas area, you must try St. Ann's, it is yummy and has an awesome patio!

Landry discovered her first powdered donut.  Powdered donuts are on my list of favorite foods.  I hardly ever have them in the house, but my mom and I had a garage sale last weekend and I got some for us to have and then brought the rest home for Landry.  She loves them!  It's only natural that she does though, seeing as how my mom, sister and I love them too!
Guess who got their first ever passports?  That would be Tim and I.  Neither of us have ever had one and we are so excited to be able to use them in a week and a half!  Seeing as how my BFF probably has hers almost full, I was pretty excited to get ours.
I had "one of those days" yesterday and my sweet husband knew it and brought me a yummy shamrock shake from McDonalds.  Ever had one?  Oh my gosh, they are so good.  Made with mint ice cream.  Well, I only got about two sips in before someone else grabbed it and proceeded to eat almost all of it!  Guess she had a bad day as well!

This weekend we had a lot going on. 
Friday night we went out with Tim's family for his grandmother's 85th birthday. 
She is so cute!  When she saw the size of this cake, she got so excited. 
Landry loves playing with her two cousins Jack and Reed. 
I love that she has cousins that are close to her age. 
She also loves her Aunt Steffie!
Tim's whole family

Saturday we went to Brady's 4th birthday party.
He had it at Allison's Playhouse
It was such a neat place to have a party
Somehow, through all the picture taking, I managed to get no pictures of the birthday boy!
The kids got to make their own superhero capes
Cute lil Charley
This is what most of the dads did the whole time!

Saturday afternoon we went to get my car washed and Landry was fascinated by all the cars going through the washer.  She got really excited when she saw my car coming through
Sunday we went out to my parents house and guess who got in the pool for the first time this year
Landry loves standing on the diving board. 
I can't wait till this summer!
My parents are working on making the side of their yard a play area for Landry and future grandkids and my dad started yesterday.  I can't wait for it to be finished.
My girl and I matched yesterday in our ponytails, green shirt and yoga pants
Landry and Mimi playing restaurant
.  Landry has really started getting into playing pretend

We had such a great weekend and the weather was so nice that we were really able to enjoy being outside!
