Revitalizing the Blog

I think that I will be revitalizing this blog. I have a separate blog for Claire which is pretty private which is how I like it considering the pervs on the internet that troll for pictures. I would like to start keeping track of whats going on again.
Update: since my last post we have had a baby, moved to a new apartment, resigned from my job, and now stay home to take care of Claire. Harvey is 4 years old now and getting fat! Wish I could take him to dog parks during the day but children aren't allowed inside of them for safety reasons. Most days Claire and I hang out at the house and primarily on Mondays and Thursdays go to the library for storytime. She loves it! She learned the Itsy Bitsy spider and Wheels on the Bus song there and now does the song anytime she can. Nothing much is going on at the moment, so I will post some pics once I can get some more time to look through them.

Christmas 2011!

We had a great Christmas this year because my family came down here to spend it with us. My mom, kai, nick, and ruben drove down to Texas and were here from the 23rd through the 1st of January. We spent time over at Tyler's parents house for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas dinner, had flautas for multiple dinners at home, went ice skating, frequented several malls, and put out many fires (Ruben is in love with firefighting). We had a great time and played lots of games of bananagrams, monopoly deal, and watching the series the "Good Wife". It was a great time and hope to have many more!

With thanksgiving coming this thursday I am thankful for a couple days off of work. I haven't had a day off since I last got sick in August and that was not enjoyable at all. We get the 24th and 25th off and also per manager's approval an early 1pm release on wednesday. We are just staying in town for the holiday but plan on camping friday night. Haven't picked out a place yet though I don't think there will be any competition since everyone is visiting each other.  As an update I am doing pretty good working everyday. Tyler is almost finished with his semester. Harvey just had his wellness check up exam and did well except that he weighs 61 pds and has some dental tartar. Guess he needs to brush more regularly! All the cats are doing well Penny, Runt, and Huey.  For Christmas we decided in order to save money we would stay home this year. My family will come down and spend the holiday with us. That's it for now.

Handy Manny!!!

The first couple pictures are of Ruben wearing his sunglasses while we are driving to Tyler's house. He never wears them correctly and you can always find him wearing them upside down. He gets a big kick out of it and wanted me to take a picture of him wearing is glasses. Ruben got a new toy at Tyler's parent's house yesterday. It's a handy manny workbench that talks out loud and makes real circular saw noises and all sorts of cool noises. He was so excited and proud of it as you can tell from the pictures.

Trip to the mall and Lego Land!!!

Ruben at Lego Land
We unfortunately were unable to go to Lego Land because of the hour wait but were still able to get this cool picture of Ruben with Buzz lightyear. We also went on the carousel together and went to toy stores. Had a great time together.

Ruben's a cowboy!!!

Loves the carousel!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Ruben and I went to the Coppell Fourth of July Parade this morning. He had a great time watching the police and fire truck go by and was very happy to find out that they give candy out to all the little kids. He got quite the loot! Ruben had a great start to 4th of July and will be seeing fireworks later today.
