Thompson Family Photos

We were finally able to get the pictures off our camera, so here are a few from the past few weeks.Annabeth with her pouty face on.

Yes, she actually has this much hair! And it's growing! It seems we can't go anywhere without someone commenting on her locks.

Eden, Erin, and Emma sitting on the tailgate eating popsicles on a hot, summer day. Aren't they cute?

Julie and Annabeth finally get to meet. We miss you, Julie!

Grandma Rosie and Annabeth

Mandy, Shelley, Julie, and me. I love all of my sisters. Seems I can't go a day without talking to one of them on the phone. They help me maintain my sanity. They really are my best friends.

Emma wanted to play Racheal Ray and concocted some sort of green mush. Yummm!

I made cupcakes to celebrate Brent's completion of his degree. He will walk across the stage in December!

Ryan Christopher, Annabeth, and Fox

Eden, Annabeth, and Erin. In this pic, Eden is playing with her hair. Both of the girls can't seem to keep their hands off of her head and find her hair to be fascinating. They are so sweet. What great cousins!

Houdini Weenie!

Our little weenie dog never ceases to entertain us. This morning, as we were leaving for church, we couldn't find Pedro. We looked everywhere inside and out, but there was no sign of him. I got into the car and strapped Annabeth in figuring that we would find him when we got home. Out of the corner of my eye, something caught my attention. It was Pedro - sitting in the driver's seat of my parent's suburban. I was confused because no one had even opened the doors to the suburban this morning. We let him out and he immediately ran to relieve himself on the grass. Apparently, he jumped in the car LAST NIGHT while my dad was hauling stuff in and out. Little guy must have jumped in when no one was looking. I can't believe he spent all night out there all by himself.

The funny part is all the thoughts that went through my mind when I saw him sitting there in the drivers seat. How did he do that? Surely, he couldn't have opened the door. Maybe he crawled underneeath the car somehow. For a second there, he had us all fooled. Our little houdini weenie-dog!

We Got A House!

Brent and I were very excited last week to learn that we will soon be home-owners again! At the end of this month, we will be relocating to Sachse, TX (pronounced like Saxy, or if your prefer, Sexy with an "a"- I know it doesn't look like like how it's spelled so I'm sure we can look forward to correcting all of you in the future. It is three bedroom, two bath - just the right size for our little family. I am so excited to get my things out of our storage unit. It will be so nice to settle down again into a home of our own. My first job will be to paint Annabeth a nursury! Brent is very excited to start work as an accountant for Ernst & Young, and I have accepted a position to teach private voice lessons part-time. We sure will miss Shreveport, but we know we will be home often.

Our new address: 7515 Vista Ridge - Sachse, Tx
