Baby Kong

After E.A.S.T. Nicholas, Jeremy and Lil' D spent some time at Kong studio, screenprinters that are housed in the same building. They had some fun printing some shirts for Lil' D. Nicholas drew the design.

E.A.S.T. -- Weekend #2

The second weekend of the East Austin Studio Tour, we visited Nicholas' studio both days. On Saturday, my family was in town and enjoyed their first visit to Nicholas' studio. Lil' D clearly feels at home in Daddy's studio.

Operation Blue Santa

The week before Thanksgiving I joined the 6th-12th grade youth of our church at Operation Blue Santa, packaging boxes of food for families for Thanksgiving. I really enjoy volunteering for Operation Blue Santa, and am amazed with the set-up for packing Thanksgiving meals. So efficient! 160 volunteers packaged 3000 meals in 1 hour and 45 minutes!

Kristen's Bridal Shower

On November 11th, we went to Nicholas' mom, Lil' D and I went to cousin Kristen's bridal shower.
Before the shower, we shopped the Book Fair at church. Lil' D may have convinced Grandma for a few new books!
Kristen had a few helpers opening gifts.
Lil' D mostly enjoyed watching the gift opening and was a little too shy to jump in and help.

After checking out the last gift Kristen opened (these cute husband and wife bears), Lil' D decided to have fun in the box they came in!
