Dear Mom and Dad: Thanks for the surprise package. As you can see, James was tickled to stripes to have a new tiger “t”-(what he calls his blanky:)
Dear Erin: Thanks for going on a mommies date with me to the Cheesecake FactoryJ It was so nice to leave our kiddos with the hubbies, wear high heels, and have a night out on the town. Who knew tasty Thia Chicken, girl talk, and a trip to Forever 21 could make me feel like I was... well...21J
Dear Aunt Cheryl: Just thinking about you and hoping you are having a very Happy Hawaiian Birthday. Please wave to the waves for me, since I am going through serious trade wind withdrawals right now.
Dear Grandma and Grandpa Gregory: We are excited to see you soon too. We just got another guest bed so we will have plenty of room to relax with you and the twins. Oh, and thanks for having James’s daddy...It's been six years since we met, and I am still head over heels for the guy:)
Dear Katelyn: James is sending his love, and a vlog your way.

We were watching Tangled with James awhile ago when John asked me if I feel like Rapunzel in this song. Mostly b/c I have lots of tangled hair to brush, the fact I make friends with chameleons (see previous post;), I can keep busy with random activities, and I was feeling a little restless that particular day.
I must admit, occasionally I get the “waiting for my life to begin feeling.” I am anxious to meet more mommies, my friends and family to come visit, and to have more babies come our way. But besides that, give me a few pots and pans, a paint brush, and my little man, and I am pretty much content at my casa...for now anyway. It helps I've already found my Flynn Rider:)

I can handle Houston's heat...my hair has adapted to the humidity (thanks to headbands)...and the horrible traffic can be avoided by taking toll roads. But cockroaches the size of a kumquat?!...I’m not so sure I will ever stop shuttering at the sight of these creepy crawling things!

Lucky for us, all pains of homesickness have been thwarted by having a full house. James is getting so used to having visitors, that the first thing he does when he wakes up is charge into the guest room in search of a new friend. Lately, he loves looking at the blog too, so even though I haven’t been the best at taking pictures of all our fun, here is a little post to jog James’s memory of some familiar family faces...
