Vacation Bible School

Here are a few shots of Brenna in the arts/crafts class during VBS last week. She did a fine job of drawing eyes on her little puppet, and enjoyed shaking her colored sand all over her gluey paper.

New Brenna!

Well, here are some new Brenna shots from the past week or so.

First, Brenna helping me open a birthday package. She thoroughly enjoyed pulling all of the stuffing out.

And some painting pictures. These are kind of out of order, the crazed Brenna look came after the last two pictures of studiousness.

Fresh Out Of Brenna

Sorry, haven't had many new pictures to post lately, we've been busy this week with Vacation Bible School, which Brenna has been thoroughly enjoying. Her favorites so far have been music time (she's mastered the shaky egg, drum, and triangle), and arts and crafts time.

Here's a shot from a few weeks ago when Brenna wasn't feeling well, and wanted Daddy to carry her around like a baby.

That's all I have for now.

More Random Brenna

Here are the last of our recent shots of Brenna.

She recently got a cool book about giraffes from Grandma and Grandpa H, and here she is showing off the book, and reading it with me.

For those of you that like your Brenna dipped in chocolate, here's another shot of her bathing in it.

And finally, hanging out in a doorway, that's what the cool kids are doing these days.

Rationing The Brenna

Here are a few new shots from the recent flood that we've taken lately.

The first is of Brenna from this past Saturday. The pinching the neck thing is a nervous habit, if you're nearby, she'll pinch you as an alternative, not too pleasant.

This is her June dress from the Little Einsteins show from the Disney Channel.

And fresh off the presses, a couple of pictures this morning of me trying to teach the child to "flash the horns", in homage to heavy metal. Her pinkies don't seem to work in conjunction with her index fingers, so below is what we got for our experiment.

So far today I've put in my time at work, done two loads of laundry, filled our outside trash can with lawn clippings from the back yard, walked three miles and ran one on the treadmill, listened to the live (18 minute) version of The Outlaws' "Green Grass And High Tides" (one of the finest songs God has ever graced us with, IMO), and have shared this blog with the world. If there was only time for a nap before Emily and Brenna get home.

The Sun Is A Killer

Trying on the newest thing in sun protection, chocolate sunscreen.

Brenna In The Yard

I figure there are more followers of Brenna than the Hoes blog, so here are some shots of our child enjoying her new watering can out in the yard. The weather here has been delightful, and we're getting outside as much as we can, before things take a turn for the worse. Photos by Emily.
Insert witty remarks that aren't coming to me at the moment here.

Back Home

I'm back home from my trip to South Carolina, and have all of one new Brenna picture to share. This one was taken on Sunday morning while she was enjoying her breakfast on the couch, whilst watching something on Noggin, no doubt. I had two other pictures from this same occasion, but in one her mouth is hanging open, Pop Tarts in plain sight, and in the other she looked just plain stoned. So here you are, quality over quantity today.

I'm also very happy to report that it's barely reached 90 degrees the last three days, which is about ten below average. Maybe summer has forgotten about us this year? Ha, not likely, but at least this lull shortens the hot stretch leading into monsoon season (early July). Roll over to the Hoes blog for some new pictures of ripening fruit!

And one last thank you for continuing to click the links on this site. As of last week, you generated the first blog related deposit into Brenna's college fund!

Heading Home

On my way home from South Carolina today, currently sitting in the DFW airport. Stay tuned, more Brenna pictures to come once we have some time to build up the archives again!
