Before I get started on my usual banter, I would like to ask for all to pray for our grammy. She is going through a rough patch and needs us all to lift her in prayer and ask that she be filled with peace, strength and faith:) Thank you all for your prayers!!

lately, we haven't been up to too much. Last weekend the boys both developed runny noses and were super fussy and carl and I were both feeling under the weather as well. Luckily, we were able to have a decent saturday full of 2 birthday parties and a wedding shower before the yucky stuff came about:) I took the boys to the doctor only to find out it was probably just allergies, so we have been powering through with loads of boogie wipes in hand;) One of the parties we went to was a train party where we were able to ride on these mini trains! It was so fun and tripp had a blast:) Tripp has been really into trains, cars, airplanes and all things boy! So when grammy and coach decided to give the boys their combined birthday present early, tripp was thrilled...did i mention the gift was a train table!! Tripp has been playing with that table non-stop, carl and I even joke and talk about what a great baby-sitter it is:) Anyways, that's about all we have been up to lately. Oh and planning and gathering things for tucker's first birthday bash!! Can't believe he is almost one! We are celebrating a few weeks early, due to so many other conflicts in novemeber, but still!! He is so different than tripp was. Tucker is not walking yet, tripp was. Tucker is super lazy, tripp def was not! However, tucker is a lot more vocal than tripp was at this point and yesterday even said ba, ba (bye, bye) and waved to the walmart lady!! He is now weighing in at a little over 22 lbs!! I thought he was still around 21 and a half, but he got weighed the other day and I was surprised, especially since he hasn't been a great eater lately, a trait both boys share. Crazy, but I guess in a few years when they are eating us out of house and home, I may miss these days;) Ok, enough chatter here are some pictures.

That's about it for now, stay tuned for pictures from the big cowan/starr halloween bash we are attending tomorrow!! Can't wait! In fact today we will be making some nutter butter ghosts and mummy dogs!! Happy weekend to all!!

  1. Hey Traci,

    This is Joanna, your roommate from freshman year at Baylor. I read your blog often and wanted to let you know what a blessing it has been to me. The joy you approach each day with is inspiring. You truly are doing the Lord's work.

    I just wanted to let you know that my church and I are praying for your mother-in-law. I was in church last night when I heard a song that made me think of your mother-in-law. I thought I would pass it on to you. It is called "You're Beautiful" by Phil Wickham. I hope you are doing well and that you have a wonderful Sunday!



It's a yes!
