Bring on Spring!

I thought it was time for a new look to our blog. I know I'm horrible at updating though. I am so ready for spring. I'm ready for golf, and baseball season. Ready to spend afternoons outside and not have to worry how cold its going to turn in the next hour!

I'm headed to Nashville this Sunday to attend a national CPS conference called Lifesavers. It's my first year and I'm super excited. I'm sure I'll come back with all sorts of information on new products and technologies. I know you will all be on the edge of your seats to hear my latest safety spill.

I'm also gearing up for the 2nd Annual Statewide Child Passenger Safety Conference.
We are coordinating that here in Oklahoma City. If you have ever put on a conference you know how exhausted I am. Hopefully, we have thought of everything! -ha.
We are excited to be hosting some of the most sought after national speakers.
Dave Long,"The Airbag Detective" to talk to us about new airbag technologies and their pros and cons. Vera Fullaway from Combi (the car seat manufacturer) International, to present on new products and installation issues. John Drees from Safe Kids Kansas to talk specifically about LATCH and misuse!
I know next month, I'll have a great report from our conference.

We have enjoyed lots of playtime with friends and family. I'm attaching some pics of our fun times.

Austen & Grant, 2nd Cousins


Austen and Ashton


Austen and Ry


For pics of Austen and his Mueller cousins visit Danielle's Blog.

Austen is doing/saying tons of funny things. I need to use this blog more to document those. His favorite phrases right now are "umm, yes" or "umm, NO". Whenever you ask him a question he almost always answers with an "Umm." I've had people tell me its because I say that, but I've never noticed it.

He also, loves airplanes, trains, helicopters. He will point to the sky and say "airplane" when he hears one even if he can't see it. Sometimes even in the house. He is starting to like watching "Moomies" aka Movies. He asks to watch a "moomie" if he's tired.

He his also starting to like coloring and painting.


Our refrigerator is covered with his creations! I love it! I always wondered if my fridge would ever look like this.



Needless to say we are having tons of fun. I have a few videos of him playing golf I need to upload! Austen will be going to Beaver to stay with Granny and Pop next week, then I will be coming on Thursday to host a car seat check up event there!
I am super excited to bring this event to Beaver and really hope everyone there realizes the importance of having their car seat checked!
I'll have pics of that next time definitely!

Whew!

We (I) have been going non-stop. I am glad to have the weekend to do nothing!
I've been working alot, teaching classes and doing car seat check-up events.
I recently completed our Loyal Action Project for Leadership Oklahoma City.
We had a great event and Awareness for Heartline 211. Check out www.heartlineoklahoma.org to learn more. We had a sucessful press conference including the First Lady, Kim Henry, and Mayor of Oklahoma City, Mick Cornett.

Heartline was able to raise more than $5,000 which was matched by United Way of Central Oklahoma! I know I should have blogged BEFORE the event, but it just didn't happen. Anyway, here is a portion of the great group of people who worked together to make this event such a great sucess. I know we will be take a great experience and great friendships from this!



We traveled to Beaver for Kael's basketball senior nite. Austen got to see my friend Kacee's little boy, Colter.




About a month ago we celebrated Austen's Great-Great Grandma's 90th birthday.
She was very excited to see everyone and it was a very special day.




After the party, Baylee was a trooper and played with Austen at one of Woodward's new parks.




We had a super bowl party and Austen loved the 3-D glasses. The other kids would not even put them on!





Austen got a balloon for Valentine's from Grammae and hasn't let it out of his sight since! He will be heartbroken when it deflates.




Well, no you know what we've been up to in the last 3 weeks.
Hope you enjoyed it!

Update...Finally!

I'm aweful at keeping this thing updated.
Our Christmas was wonderful of course and we had tons of family fun.

Austen loves brownie mix!


We got to see one of my best friends Meredith and her two boys this week...Always exciting!

Madeline and Macy came up from Dallas this weekend and we didn't get any pics, but I have to tell you how much they enjoy each other. It is so much fun to see them together. I love it.

We are looking forward to finally getting to spend some time with Hayes and Ry Howard this week!

I'm trying to decide whether or not to consign some of Austen's clothes at the JBF sale this spring. You know how I feel about being pregnant again. But in case anyone esle needs them.. It just makes sense to consign some since I always buy so much at the JBF sale!
