Bailey's fifth grade teacher, Mr. Goss, came to see her and best friend Marie's game.
This is Brice dribbling down court.

Brice going for the lay-up.

Bailey shooting a free throw,

and making it.
The videos below are blurry, I wasn't fast enough working the camera to clear it up:) Before each game the coaches do a role call and the team runs through the arch. It is one of their favorite things!

Lip Gloss and Facial Hair

Blake was wearing lip gloss in the car and wanted Bailey to take a picture of her.
Bailey went to her friends house Friday after school, so the rest of us went to Double Dave's. Blake purchased this facial hair from one of the machines and when I went to take her picture she told me that she didn't want it to go on the blog! :) How funny, but it just guaranteed that it would go on the blog!

Eating his favorite thing in the world, pepperoni rolls!

First Strings Concert!

Bailey had her first strings concert Monday night. It was all the elementary schools combined. She did a great job. They have only been learning since October and didn't start with their bows until after Christmas.

Ballerina and Spider-man!

Lately Blake has been dancing around the house like a ballerina. She has been asking to take ballet classes (great!). I might have to look into it for her. Bailey took these pictures of her dancing.

Brayden likes to think he is Spider-man:) Here are some of his poses Bailey took pictures of. He cracks me up!

Treatments and Charms

Blake had a really bad cough that had her asthma airways really low, so she has to do her albuterol and pulmicort breathing treatments and she is on old faithful, oral steroid orapred. The good thing about orapred is that not only does it help her breathing and clear her chest, it also clears her skin! BONUS!!!
Bailey and Brice started their James Avery charm bracelets when they were little, and every birthday and Christmas their Aunts, Trang and Thuy, and their cousin Helen have given them a charm. Needless to say their bracelets are crammed with charms. Blake received her 5th charm for Christmas and they had to ship it to Kerrville to add her charm. I also had them take off the safety chain so she could wear it right now. She just has a little extra bracelet that hangs down, but she can wear it! She just got it back today and is sooo excited. She has been bugging me since we shipped it off!! One more charm bracelet to go and then were done:)

Dead Man Walking

Yes, Bre and Mom, this is another post about our dogs:) Dead Man Walking is Kaiser's big daddy! This past weekend they had a bully show here in Spring and he was in town. DMW always takes 1st in all around and biggest head and there are probably other awards as well. (You can google him) This weekend was no different. He is only a puppy himself! Jesse is his owner and he is the one trying to get Kaiser to hold still for a picture, good luck with that:)
This just gives everyone an idea of how BIG Kaiser will be. Jesse said he looks the same size DMW was at this age and his head looks big as well. Kaiser is 13 weeks and 28 pounds. Just wait- I have already started leash training him and soon I will be whooping his butt into shape. We just might have to do the bully show circuit and give DMW a run for his money, cause you know sloppy seconds ain't my style:)

Bronx mom was at the show as well. She won 1st for best compact. It's amazing to think that he came from such a tiny female, but you could definitely see the resemblance.

This is junior, Kaiser's half-brother from another mother. Junior is 5 weeks older than Kaiser and Kaiser is already about the same size!

They loved running around together.

Monday Kaiser had his ears fixed. We got him when he was 5 weeks old and he came to us with his ears already cropped. Needless to say they were less than perfect. Our vet, who also did Bronx ears, is awesome at ear cropping and wanted him to wait till after his 3rd set of shots to get his ears fixed. So he is a little drugged and not happy about having to stay calm for 10 days! It will be a challenge, but Brayden is very good at talking to him soothingly when he starts to shake his head like a maniac. It's so cute.
