March 2012

Since the beginning of the year Lexi has been practicing for the spring play which was Mulan this year.    Lexi was chosen to be one of the chinese warriors.  She had to balance Basketball practice, play practice, school, piano and church.  The play was the beginning of March and the kids all did a great job.  She loved the songs and tae kwon do moves she learned.  Finally a outlet for her "dramatic" personality 

After doing so well in his company's Halloween costume contest, Jordan decided to enter the next contest.  It was for a chili making contest, this was in recognition of rodeo time in Houston.  Jordan had a recipe from a friend for white chili- Chicken and great northern beans.  He got 2nd place-$75.00.  Jordan has the touch with contests.

Our baby girl turns 13!!!  Has it really been 13 years since she turned our world upside down?  It's been  a great blessing to have Lexi in our family and she adds a spark to our lives.  She started the day with her favorite-cinnamon pizza.

As per tradition, the kids get to choose where they want to go out to eat for dinner.  Lexi's choice was Cracker Barrel.

Lexi and her loot.  This is a big milestone year, as we let the girls wear make-up when they turn 13.

 For her actual party Lexi wanted to play volleyball at a local sand court.  Unfortunately the Houston weather did not cooperate and we got buckets of rain.  Much needed but not wanted at this time.  So we went to the church and the girls played there.  I am definitely not a cake designer but you get the picture.  The school colors are green and black so we went with that color scheme.

March is rodeo time in Houston.  This year with scheduling it ended up being myself, Taylor, Paige and Lexi that went to the rodeo.  It was a beautiful day and for the concert we saw the Zach Brown band.  A very good concert.  It was during Spring Break so a bit crowded.  The sad part was that the kids are no longer in awe of the animals and displays.  Kind of  been there, done that.

We did take a ride across the fairgrounds on the sky ride.  Since there is only the freeway overpasses that have any height to them in Houston, anytime you can get up above it's a great view.

During Spring Break we did take a day and go to the Houston Zoo.  We went with friends and the girls had a good time.  It's been a couple of years since we've been and they've added many new enclosures and animals.
