the letter of the day

P is for park.

Tuesday we took Dylan to Torres Park. The Parish did an awesome job renovating the park. It has new playground equipment, two new gazebos, pedal boats, kayaks, fishing, a rope bridge, and a rock and water feature modeled after Monkey Hill at Audubon Zoo. All this right in our backyard!

He loves the slide!

Posing by the rock feature!

Daddy & Dylan!

Us on the bridge!

Kevin would throw the bread in the air and the birds would catch it!
 P is for party.

Last Saturday night we went to my dad's uncle's 70th birthday party at Acme Oyster House in the French Quarter. We had a great time, the food was great, and it was nice seeing family that we hardly ever see.

Raw Oysters

Kevin tried raw oysters for the first time!

Dylan kept wanting to go outside

People watching! There were 3 bums hanging out across the street. It was kinda chilly outside and one was barefoot!

Looking down from the balcony - Iberville St.

P is for pull-ups.

Guess who is wearing pull-ups now? We call them big boy drawers!

Dylan modeling his pull-ups!
 P is for priceless.

I love being a mommy! Sure there are times when he drives me crazy and I want to go hide somewhere but those times are few. It's all a part of being a parent. You love them when they are good and bad! And I have to admit that it is hard to stay mad or upset at him! He is too cute even when he is being bad!

Me to Kevin: "Dylan is being really quiet back there."So I turn to check on him and this is what I find . . . him chewing on his shoelaces!

a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This Christmas was so much fun with Dylan - watching him open up his gifts and seeing the excitement in his eyes
each time he was handed a gift and saw what the gift was. Kevin and I were just as excited as he was (probably even more).

Twas the night before Christmas at the Cazeaux house

Everyone was still wide awake, even the mouse!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

and gifts were piled up everywhere!

Mommy and Daddy's gift!

Opening up presents!


I think he likes it!

Dressed and ready to go see Mi Mi and Nanny!

Thanks Nanny!

Mi Mi, Nanny, Mommy, Daddy and Dylan!


Then we went visit Pawpaw Al and Nana!

Us, Jo Jo, Pawpaw Al, Nana, Nanny, and De De!

We went to church and then we went to Pawpaw and Mawmaw's house!

Us, Mawmaw, Pawpaw, Kavin, and Kain!
On New Year's Eve we went to church for our annual Watch Night Service and then we went to Shoney's. Going to Shoney's on New Year's Eve has been a tradition in my family since forever. We watched some fireworks and then went home to get some much needed sleep! New Year's Day we slept in and then went visit with Kevin's family!


Us New Year's Day!

Sparkler with Daddy!
