ooooh the pool's open!

We LOVE IT when the weather gets hot enough and the pools in our neighborhood opens. The McManus family packs up a cooler filled with lot's of food and drinks, all our pool stuff, and spends the whole mid-morning to nap time at the pool. I especially love it because I'm pregnant, and I get to be in the water or veg out on a lounge chair the whole time. :) Enjoy the pics and be prepared for more and more as the summer continues!
The newest pool opened and it has a terrific splash pool plus a huge family pool. The boys have a blast in the splash pool and I get to sit back and observe from the above mentioned lounge chairs. Yippppeeee

Feeling Blessed

4 weeks to go......
Yes I finally took a picture of me pregnant! (this is for my Mom who is dying to see one) I told her to just go look at the pics of me preggos with the boys, but that didn't fly. Enjoy Mother!

Today I was given a beautiful baby shower. What a wonderful morning spent with some of my favorite women. Women who are in the same stage of life as me and others who I look up to and love receiving wisdom from. Our time was spent eating yummy food, fellowshiping, opening wonderful gifts, and a glorious prayer time. A special thanks to all the friends that made this day so WONDERFUL and special. I love you all! (I can't believe I didn't get one picture with any of you: epic fail)

That is a lot of dresses and a lot of girlie clothes. I love it and look forward to this new thing called accessorizing!
I had to put this picture up too. Bryce and Connor had to check out all the gifts when I got home. Bryce of course went straight for the lovey and binkys, he held them tight looked at me and said simply; "mine!". That boy makes me giggle!

Our New Adventure

This last year, I have had some great God moments where I found myself giving up what I wanted or thought I needed. I have boasted over and over again that I want God's best in my life and for my family. During this last year, I have had to give up my ideas of what was best and sit back and watch God's perfect plan unfold. It has been wonderful to see the different ways God has taken care of me and my family; a new baby girl, an awesome ministry opportunity, and Adam's new job. Little did I know that those were all little things, ultimately preparing me for the biggest change of all. The question is, am I ready to once again put my trust in God's plan and sit back and wait for God's best? After some selfish tears and voiced frustrations, I can proudly say "yes!" So here's our new adventure.......moving to Austin, TX. Alamofire, the company Adam works for, is taking the next big step in the social-networking/gaming/digital collectibles world (don't ask me what that means) and moving to the big interweb city of Austin. This is very exciting for the company and shows how much quality work the guys and gal have put in this last year. But, that means we're packing up and leaving all that we know here in Keller. It is scary and stressful (selling a house while pregnant or with a newborn..yikes), but I know God already has every detail planned and that it is perfect! So, the last couple of weeks we have been breaking the news to friends, dejunking the house, and preparing for showing after showing.
The pile of stuff we donated to a local orphanage. I have now decided that every year I am going to pretend that we are moving. It felt so great to purge all that stuff.
The pictures of our house! Time to sit back and wait on God's perfect timing. I will have to remind myself before every showing (while I am making sure the house looks perfect) that God is never late or early, but always ON TIME!

Celebration Weekend

What a fun week and weekend we had! We got to celebrate Bryce's b-day and Mother's Day! On Bryce's B-day we had a fun family night; eating dinner and having our family party. Bryce got Duplo Lego blocks and LOVES THEM. We have been playing with them everyday since.
On Friday night we had Bryce's birthday party and invited all our friends over. We enjoyed an evening filled with dinner, bubbles, presents, and Costco cupcakes! Bryce did a great job, he got nervous when he realized everyone was looking at him during present time. And dug himself into my neck when we sang Happy Birthday, but he never cried.

Having fun with our friends on the trampoline.

Bryce loves bubbles and played with his special jumbo bubble wand all night long. Even now looking at the picture his reaction is a pouty face and a pathetic "bubble bye-bye!"
On Saturday we celebrated Mother's Day and went to our family's favorite place; The Fort Worth Zoo. The weather was perfect and the animals were out and about. We even got to ride the train!! That evening Adam took me to see Star Trek, I grew up a trekkie and loved the movie.

What a great WEEK!

Happy Birthday Bryce

Happy 2nd Birthday to my little man, Bryce! I can't believe that it has been two years already. You have been such a blessing to our little family. Such a kind heart, loving attitude, and a sense of humor sometimes only you and your brother understand. Everyday you bless me with your snuggles and loves, what a Mama's boy! Your sweet, calm, and sometimes sneaky spirit brings joy to our family each day! I can't wait to see what this next year holds for you. We love you Bryce!!!

A perfect example of your sense of humor! You broke these sunglasses and then quietly put them on, soon after you had the whole house laughing and giggling!
Parties and being the center of attention might not be your thing, but man you loved the cake!
Such a sweet, calm, and quiet baby you were. Mom loved snuggling with you ever since day 1.
