Snow Day

It snowed about 5-7 inches in McKinney a little while back. Here are the pictures, as promised.

Here’s what it looks like when McKinney gets over a foot of snow. Zachary had a blast, and I’m so glad we got up early and took a few shots before it all melted. Beautiful.

Zachary’s 10 month shoot

We don’t want to spoil all the photos we have as some of them are for Christmas. But we couldn’t resist posting a few. We are parents after all (we gotta brag!) We’re all very excited to see the fam in Baton Rouge in a few weeks. Get ready y’all… this is what’s on the way!

Zach had just started mastering sitting up on his own in these shots

This was the biggest smile we could get out of him at the moment.

Lately Zach has really been enjoying eating "real" food. Last night we ordered a pizza and I didn't think he was going to ever stop eating.

Zach loves being naked (big surprise). When you go to put on his clothes he's all good until you get to the sleeves. Then the whining begins.

We've been taking him to Paradise (a little over an hour) to do some test runs for the Baton Rouge drive in December. So far, he's done great. We got him a larger baby seat Matt calls his "captain's chair" - and I'm sure he loves sitting in it.

I wished I was able to get these in time for Halloween... but our photographer was a little slower than normal. Still glad I got these though!!

I wish he could stay this age forever (ok maybe not FOREVER but you know what I mean). He's just at such a sweet age right now.

It’s been way too long since we’ve posted anything, and I have all these awesome Z-man pic lying around. So here we go…

North Carolina/Virginia, Day 3

Day 3 was an all-day road trip to Charlottesville, Virginia and its most-famous building: Monticello, the residence of Thomas Jefferson.  For many years, I’ve desired to visit this place.  Thanks to the recent John Adams mini-series and repeated listens to the Thomas Jefferson Hour podcast, waiting to visit there was akin to a kid trying to quietly pass through the 364 days before the next Christmas.

On the way back to Jim’s house, we stopped in Chatham, Virginia.  At Chatham Hall, an all-girls prepratory school, we visited with Jim’s friend (and former student) Blair.  We assumed that the three of us would grab a drink or a quick bite of dinner.  Little did we know that Blair would sweep us into a dinner party being thrown by the school’s rector.  A night of home-cooked vegetarian food, fudge-covered ice cream, handmade guacamole, and wonderful conversation would follow.
