Poythress Family Visit

Blogged under Friends,Pictures by Steph on Tuesday 8 August 2006 at 6:27 pm

The Poythress Family: Danny, Amy, Brittany and Preston (~4 mos. old at the time) visited us a couple weekends ago. Mara had so much fun visiting with everyone. She particularly likes Brittany who will play with her a lot. Also she enjoyed trying to sit in Preston’s little green chair called the Bumbo Seat. She’s a bit too big so when she’d stand up it would often come with her. The picture of Mara with both hands in a bowl is when we went out to La Fiesta for lunch on Sunday and she was indulging in the sour cream bowl. Forget dipping chips, hands are delicious with sour cream!!

Although this wish is a little belated we still want to say Happy 16th Birthday to Brittany. Her birthday was July 31st. We are coming to visit you sometime soon to play some ping pong! Thanks for always entertaining Mara and being so kind as to babysit her for us so we can go out with your parents.

Making Friends In The DR

Blogged under Friends,Pictures by Luke on Thursday 29 June 2006 at 8:09 pm

When Mara was on the plane to the Dominican Republic, she was a very social little girl. She made faces and played games with the couple that sat behind us on that leg. Of course when we got to customs and everything we parted ways. I don’t think we even introduced ourselves.

Then on the second night of our stay at the resort we were going to the restaurant Bambu. We recognized a couple standing outside the restaurant, but at that point I just thought it was a familiar face from the resort. Nope, it was the couple from the flight.

Well, we went on to introduce each other, and also saw much of each other coincidentally throughout the stay. Mara had some new friends at that point, Flavia and Marcio. Thanks for sending the picture! And thanks for spending time with Mara, she loved it!

There are some great playground action shots so be sure to click on the picture below for the link to the entire album of shots!

Well these pictures are atleast a few weeks old.  Mom & dad have been very busy.  We wanted you to see them anyway since they are so cute.  Here Mara is playing (if you call it that) with Parker Sowell (~18 mos. old) and Zachary Davis (just turned two).

Wheels On The Wagon Go Round And Round

Blogged under Friends,Videos by Luke on Monday 30 January 2006 at 11:55 pm

A couple of weeks ago Nana stopped in on the weekend to pay a visit to Mara. I don’t remember how it got started, but we decided to give Mara a ride in her little (not so little) red wagon that Grandma got her for Cristmas. She loves the wagon, and she loves Nana making a fuss over her too. There are other goodies in this one, like you get to see her say bye-bye. Things were going just fine until Dad inadvertently dropped the wagon handle on the little ones head. It sounds worse than it was, I promise. She was getting tired of the ride anyways…

Attack The One With Goldfish!

Blogged under Friends,Pictures by Steph on Saturday 14 January 2006 at 9:28 pm

Shannon and Parker came for a visit last week. Tuesday afternoon to be exact. Anyway it was getting close to mealtime for the little ones as you can see here. I think this is a real cute shot of the “piranhas” attacking Shannon for Goldfish. Breakout the goldfish and the kids come a runnin’!

p.s. What a sweet smile, Parker! You actually let one out instead of that concealled grin you give sometimes!

Emma’s First Year

Blogged under Friends,Pictures by Luke on Sunday 30 October 2005 at 11:59 pm

One year ago Emma was born on Halloween, so today we celebrated her birthday. Dad and her dad, Chris, work together. Mara had a fun time, although she has been bothered with a runny / stuffy nose this past week. We tried to keep isolation of toys and kids for the most part, but that is difficult. Mara was people watching again and had an all around great time.

Emma had a wonderful cake which you can see in some of the pictures. Its a pumpkin. Not sure if she ate very much of it though. Mara wasn’t scared of it by any means.
