Daddy's new little girl

Well, Heidi is here.... she is our new 7 week old German Shepherd puppy. For those of you who know me well, you understand what a major life event this is as I am not a "dog person." She will be daddy's dog as he will be responsible for the pooper scooper duty. (ha ha ha) Heidi was delivered all the way from San Antonio TX by my old high school friend Liz. She will grow up to be our family protector and companion....The Daddy and the girls are having a wonderful time playing with her...and ok yes, me too.... guess that's why they call it puppy love

New house update

So we have made our first home improvment.... much needed window blinds for our kitchen! They look awesome and provide us with the privacy that we have been lacking these last few months.

Fiesta in the Concho

So last weekend was one of my favorite times in San Angelo .... Fiesta on the Concho .... I took the girls down on Friday night to have a look at what was all there this year...found a pony ride, a petting zoo, ran into some friends from church and watched some model boat races .... Saturday Lanie decided to wake up at 5:30 so the girls and I all got up and went to see them launch the hot air balloons at 7:30 in the morning which was AWESOME! the girls loved it and so did I... ran in to Me maw and D-dad ( Ryan's mom and step dad)...we walked around the frontier day stuff at fort concho.... went to the framers market and then back to the fiesta to ride that pony, pet those baby bunnies at the petting zoo and of course eat a couple hot dogs....

Unidad Park

Here are some of my favorite pictures of the girls playing at unaided park. It is one or our favorite things to do and as you can tell we always have FUN!

My favorite mothers day gift

My dad gave me the best mothers day gift this year.... a beautiful drawing he did of my girls from their Christmas photo... He has become a wonderful artist. I am so proud I have to share it with you all!

Christmas in May!

As I mentioned in my last post Christmas came very early this year for the Kaufman"s.... thought you all might enjoy a peak at our ....New Living Room Furniture!... our very Merry Christmas from Nona and Papa

Nona and Papa ... our first official guests!

We just finished the most wonderful visit with my parents (Nona and Papa). Mom came down a few day's before dad. She had a most chaotic flight due to flight cancellations, missed connections, and of course the infamous detour to Waco ( she will be glad to share the story with those who ask I am sure) HA! The trip to Waco brought a much welcome visit from aunt Beth and uncle Mike and of course lunch at the old time pit bar-b-que. Mom and I spent the next few days hitting all the shops (Tuesday morning, bed bath and beyond and EVERY furniture store in town) The girls had a wonderful time being with Nona and were good little shoppers. Evenings were spent going on walks around the neighborhood and watching all those movies Nona brought. Late Friday night Papa arrived after his speaking engagement at OU. Saturday was full of more errand running (hobby lobby, home depot Kirkland's) and then lunch with Christa and Carl. Sunday we had a chance to take my parents to our home church and introduce them to our Johnson Street family there. Not only did my parents visit bring wonderful time spent together but a very early Christmas for the Kaufman's.... thank you Nona and Papa!
