In Texas, bluebonnet pictures are a must:) They have been so pretty lately and we had a great time playing in them. Although I think Hudson was more excited about getting to ride his bike after we took pictures.

China Hat

While we were in China, DaYu bought this hat for Hudson. When it comes to hats (or just about anything for that matter) Hudson likes to decide when he will start wearing them. With that in mind I have shown it to him a few times and asked him if he wanted to wear it. Of course the answer was "no". Well a few days ago Hudson was having some room time and when he came out this is what he looked like and honestly, the lack of hair covering his forhead kind of creeps me out.
Thank you DaYu for once again bringing me much laughter:)

15 months!!!

Well, Parker is now 15 months! I can't believe how fast the time has gone. She is such a wonderful addition to our family. Hudson loves taking care of his sister and "guiding" her. She is a sassy girl that knows what she wants. She loves to cuddle with her momma and if I (erin) is sitting on the floor she will sit in my lap very quickly. Her ear infections have improved since we got the tubes put in. She is starting to talk more and more. She loves animals - barks, meows and sometimes will baaa. She is FULL of energy!

China Trip

This post is long be honest, I have been a little overwhelmed thinking about this post. So many pictures to go through, so many thoughts and great experiences to share. With all of that said, I am going to keep this pretty short. We had a amazing time, the kids did fantastic on the flights and the whole trip, and we were truly blessed to spend time with the Vaughns. You can check out some more of our time there on their blog

here are a few of our pictures and you can check out some more on my (erin's) facebook.
Our last night...we had dinner with some other foreigners in the city. With all of us together we had 12 adults and 16 kids (8 and under). It was AWESOME!!!! Thank you Vaughns for allowing us to invade your world for a week.
Hudson feeding pigeons. We went to this fantastic park and we were able to buy corn to feed the pigeons. I wasn't sure what Hudson would think, but he loved it!
