November trip to TEXAS to visit auntie Coley
Brecken's favorite part of Coley's house
(besides Coley of course!)
He loves taking care of the 3 dogs!
An unforgettable moment of the trip....
Brecken found out what fire ants are:(
and our FAVORITE part of TX....
The cement slab for our shed had been poured
for our shed while we were gone and on our
first day back home Brecken was determined to ride
his bike without training wheels for the very first time...
Got the hang of it within 30 minutes of trying:)

you as Kallyn and "ball of america"
if you ask Brecken!
Rides, Dora/Diego, Legoland and
their best friend Maddi equals
a combination to wear them out;)
this girl loves anyone who will read to her!
Brecken's new passion is coloring
pictures and writing, and I must say
he does some pretty fine work.His preference is usually trucks/tactors!
putting them to work in the kitchen!
This picture displays their interests very well,
Brecken is our hands on helper and Kallyn is our taste tester!
Thanks Auntie Sarah for sharing your cheese sauce with me!
