Pictures That Make Me Smile

Smiling rocks.

And the following pictures have made me smile.




The dessert we had on Christmas Day. That cake is a triple chocolate cake from HEB. I love the bakery in HEB. If I lived in Texas, I’d try every dessert.




Tommy gets so excited when he does different science experiments. In this one, he was creating tornados.





Real Mexican food always thrills me. This was taken at a restaurant on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. I can’t even remember what I ordered, but they were delicious.





We went to the San Antonio Zoo and Natalie wanted to keep this goat. She named it Goaty and kept saying, “You can come home with me, Goaty.”





My Mom loves (and I mean loves) horses. She brought us to the place where she volunteers and this horse definitely loved the camera.





Natalie decided to wear her jacket like pants. I’m not entirely sure why. She takes after her mother. Sometimes we do things that don’t exactly make much sense.





This candy bar caught my eye because of its name. It’s fun to say. And it turns out that it’s delicious. Anything with peanut butter is usually a win in my eyes.

  16. Why wouldn't you wear a jacket as pants?

  17. AJcket as pants is perfect. I have a picture that always makes me smile of Peanut wear gloves as socks. She looks like a duck almost the way the fingers are all empty and spread out.

  25. That gorgeous daughter of yours must be kept locked in a tower the minute she reaches 15 - she is FAAAAR too beautiful to be let loose on mankind!! The horse with your mum made me laugh - what a ham he is! What a sweet expression on that scientist-to-be's face, too! Ah, family, demented as they may often drive us, we wo9uldn't be without them, eh?

  26. Those tornado bottles make fairly decent drink mixers, btw. We used to use ours to make whiskey sours (tried rum and coke once and it almost exploded) but when a friend with a young child overheard us and wanted to try it, we made her some koolaid (in clean bottles, of course) and she LOVED it. It might also work for chocolate milk, though I've never tried it.

  27. A very nice series of pictures. I have a picture of myself hugging a sheep exactly in the way your daughter is hugging a goat. Mind you, I was about 36 at the time. But everyone needs a cuddle, don't they?

  28. And now I miss Texas!

    The tortillas at HEB are awesome and perfect.

    And, well, any real tex-mex rocks. We can't get anything close here.

  29. all those pictures made me smile =)

  30. I'm sure you are glad not to have a pet goat. That horse is SO funny!

    ReplyDelete
  31. All those pictures made me smile too! And as for the Tex-Mex?? You can't beat it! And you can't find it anywhere else - the mexican food here totally pales in comparison - even when the owners claim to come from Texas. That's the one thing I truly miss about Houston. Every time I go home I eat Tex Mex just about every day.

  32. That horse pictured is hilarious. Jakob loves science too. I'd love to see how they interact should we ever get together the next time you're down here. 2 aspies together can only bring good. Right? Right?! hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've never heard of a Thingamajig! I MUST find one!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is a great set of photos and smiles. Your mom is just as cute as you and your kids are.

  35. These pictures made me smile too.

  36. Those are all great things to smile about ... especially the Mexican food and cake! You can take Goaty home to keep Glen company! I wonder what kind of critter a goat and antelope would produce. =D

  37. Good post. Your mother is beautiful. Runs in the family, I see.

    Hey, lawsuit in the making: Hershey stole a word I came up with years ago.

    Barefoot, sunshine (heat) and a coat? Oh, what weird weather we have nowadays.

    I predict Tommy can be a great scientist; possibly save the world. Go Tommy!

  38. Goatie....still laughing. It reminds me of my son who used to name our pets by their colour: whity, blackie, greyie...
    The first pic of the cake...ummm...yummy! And the Thingamajig, well, duh! Of course it would be good, it's loaded with sugar!
    Great pictures though, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing your family...and Goatie.

  39. I LOVE Texas, of course! I shop at HEB weekly. I guess I need to try more of their desserts. This will not help me with my plan to lose 15 pounds in the next 3 months. Thanks a lot.

  43. I like pictures like these. That one of your mom with the horse is brilliant - the expression on his face! And I'm not sure why but I want a thingamajig...
