Texas on My Mind

Okay... here's the deal... when my girls saw the wonderful video that my friend posted they immediately began to conjure a plan for a video of their own. So, they picked a song and we walked through the photos to decide what they wanted their theme to be,"Texas on My Mind"is the song that was chosen and the theme is Texas Sun:-). They decided it should contain only outside photos of our trip to TX, but I snuck in a really cute one of Judah lookin' very "risky"... see if you can find the one I'm referring to:-).

Also, a few weeks ago another friend tagged me and I haven't had the chance to post anything yet... so, here goes :-).

The Rules:

1. Go to where you store your digital photos and open the 4th folder.
2. Post the 4th picture in that folder.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag 4 people.

My mom and I were messing around downtown and got a little crazy!! We stopped by this statue of a guy sitting on a bench (it looks very real) and took a few pics of each other pretending to interact with this statue man! I will spare you the other shots... we had a great time!!

I tag ... whoever decides to play along!! Have fun!!!

Mini Vacation continued ;-)

Did I mention that they were very helpful...and also that I found that it only takes about 30 minutes to thoroughly clean the ENTIRE house when you have 16 children to help!!! Yet another reason to have a large family:-).

Ice Storm '09 "The Mini Vacation :-)"

Well, what began as a lovely snowy day... or few days, actually turned into quite a storm! It was a whole new experience for James and I to lie awake that night listening to branches crash down around our house and neighborhood... and not a very pleasant experience at that! The next day while we were busy marveling at the very thick ice and snow that was continuing to fall, we received a call from a distressed friend whose power had gone off! It was about 10 degrees outside and probably somewhere around 40 in their house! So, we said come on over... stay as long as you like... tell others about the warm Tieman Abode!
And so, we ended up having about 23 or so people in the house for a few days! What a wonderful time :-). Seriously, it was really good. Everyone was well behaved and got along beautifully and I had a lot of fun having so many people around and a little break from the everydayness of our everyday life!! Kinda like a vacation!
