The Gothreaux Family

MawMaw and PawPaw came to visit for Labor Day. We enjoyed their visit. Although it rained several days, we managed to have plenty of indoor activities to keep us busy. One day the sun came out and we were able to go outside. Andy helped PawPaw do a job in the backyard. They picked up pieces of cement around our patio so Daddy doesn't hit it with his lawnmower.

Here Andy and Catie are playing trains. She is now sitting up (with some assistance) and loves Andy's trains and cars!

Billy and I went to Chicago and had a blast. Here is a picture of where we stayed...The Peninsula. We went to the Field Museum, went to the top of the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower), went to a Cubs vs Braves baseball game and ate at some wonderful restaurants.

Hey everybody! Check out my new bow!!!

About to leave for church!

Happy girl!

Our Sunday school class had a tailgate social and you were to wear your favorite team colors! We were the only ones sporting purple and gold this year!

Sweet little Andy! This is how we found him one night!

August has now come and gone and I haven't been as faithful with updating my blog! Sorry! Here are several pictures taken throughout the month!

Monkey See Monkey Do

Andy and Daddy cutting the grass! What a picture!

Andy was a busy little bee... after he cut the grass, he washed my car. He said it needed it!

Summer Fun

Yay swimming at PawPaw and MawMaw's house! We were thrilled to see him in the pool!!!

Here Andy is sharing his trains with Catie!

Sweet Andy sharing more trains!

I think she has plenty of trains...don't you?

My little helper...he loves to help! He especially loves to help me wash dishes!

These two guys crack me up...and are both so intense...guess what they are watching...Swamp People-too funny!

Ok I had to share...this is my first attempt at sewing. I made her BIG bow!

Smiling little girl!

Summer Fun

I can't believe she's already able to sit and enjoy her bumbo!

This week, we are having VBS at church! It has been a great far and we still have a few days to go. Andy is having a blast and has enjoyed being in the 3 year old class. When I ask him what he has learned for the day, he replies, "Mommy I learn about Jesus." Oh how sweet to hear that and thank you Jesus for his teachers that are teaching them the truth! My little Andy is growing up... Catie has also enjoyed her time in the nursery...a little swing time and time on her play mat! They both have had a good time while Mommy helps teach a classroom full of 2nd graders.

Catch Up

Andy enjoyed playing with Daddy's and Uncle Moon's old trucks and cars. Here there was a "big" crash! He's so dramatic...wonder where he gets that from??? And then Andy enjoyed helping PawPaw grill MawMaw a wonderful "happy retirement" meal. We are so excited for MawMaw and thankful for the time she invested in children's lives.

I attempted to take come pictures of the two little ones and well...this is as good as it got.

And here's Momma enjoying playing dress-up with Catie girl!

Mom's last day of work! At their faculty breakfast, she was recognized for 25 1/2 years of teaching...(what a great accomplishment) and then we all surprised her with beautiful roses and four smiling faces! Mom, we are so proud of you and all the lives you have touched!

While we were in Luling, we headed to the Children's Museum. Here are a few shots of the things Andy really enjoyed doing while we were there. He had a did Catie as she slept the whole time we were there.

We also headed downtown and road the streetcar. It was fun and yes, Catie slept the whole time!
