I’m getting closer to being caught up!  My goal is to get everything done today so I can do a birthday post tomorrow!

Well, it turns out I didn’t take many pictures of Colton in September either.  We went to the tractor pulls in New Braunfels, 9/27/08.  There was also a petting zoo there along with a lot of other fun stuff.  So we will have to go back there next year!  Colton found a cow – pronounced “mow” by him.  It’s like he is trying to say moo and cow together, but he can’t pronounce c’s yet, so that is how he says it.  Anyway, he really loved being able to pet this baby calf and in general was just super excited to see it!


Well, August must have flown by because I managed not to get any pictures (not that I could find anyway!) except for at the end of the month when we went to the beach.  We actually didn’t get any photos of Colton at the beach.  We only went twice even though it was a short walk away.  The first time Colton and I were by ourselves (with some of our friends) and he was running around everywhere.  He really enjoyed the water and the seagulls, but it was hard keeping up with him and before I knew it, we left to get some lunch and get him a nap and didn’t even pull the camera out!  Then we went a second time with Doyle and I was prepared this time to get some pictures, or so I thought I was.  I didn’t know I need to acclimate the lens for so long.  I took them out and they just would not un-fog!  We all played in the water and before you know it we all managed to get tar on our feet!  So even though Colton had a fun time at his first beach outing, I managed to not get a single picture!  I’ll make it up to him next time we go though.  And now for the pictures we did get from that trip.  We went to the aquarium and watched the dolphin show and were very interested in looking at all the different fish.  We will definitely come back there!


We didn’t take too many pictures these months either, so I decided to combine them.  I do take more pictures than I share, but most of them are of him not looking at the camera or nothing interesting going on in the pictures.  So I just pick my favorites.  Anyway, in June we took an impromptu family photo and had some fun eating watermelon and practicing driving the lawnmower.   In July we went to the sprinkler park in Austin and had a lot of fun there.




Opps!  I forgot all about this picture.  It wasn’t filed away right and I just found it.  Grandma, my Dad’s Mom came to visit and we got this picture!











Colton had to have a bite of Mom’s (my) sandwich.  It’s a little big for him but he handled it well.

I just finished sending out our Christmas cards and I figured I better get the blog caught up now that people will be more likely to check it out.

So I’ve gotten way behind again and I’m really trying to catch up.  I’ve even found a faster way to share multiple photos, so I think this might actually get me caught up now!  May didn’t get many photos taken, but I did take one of Colton for some Mother’s Day presents to all his Grandmas and Great-randmas and I made one for me too.  I still need to take a picture of the actual gift I made, but for now, here is a version of the photo I used.


And now for the photo storyboard I put together with the help of a free action I tried out at MCP actions .  I think I’m going to buy a whole set so I can have more versitility with this fun action!
