Bambino # 2 on the way!

Mary is pregnant!!  Yea!!!  

We were really hoping for two kids, but felt so blessed just to get one beautiful baby, Danielle, that we thought we were really pushing it to hope for two.  We are thrilled.  Danielle will make a great big sister, I know.

As for L.A., well... we are going to wait for another year.  Again!  Kind of ironic, since having a baby was what stalled our plans the first time.  But not going enabled me to be here in Austin when I landed the Living and Dying and Prison Break roles (and a shot at a good role in Microwave Park), so, nobody knows anything, really.  We are just happy to have another bambino on the way.

Currently scrambling to find a house and set up shop.  We'll keep y'all posted!

Football God

Did I mention that Troy Polamalu rocks?

Seriously, this dude is from another planet.  He's coming off a major knee injury, by the way. Only his third game back in 2008.  Jeez.

Now, if we can just get the rest of our team healthy, we might actually have a shot at the brass ring this year.

Night of the Ladybug

Mary found the cutest last-minute, resale-shop costume for Danielle: a Ladybug! Which is cool, because Big D sees those all the time around our house. Mommy made a quick alteration to the petticoat, and Baby Girl was good to go.

Justin and Christa invited us to join them and their neighbors, so we had a nice gaggle of kids. As always, Christa (aka Pippi Longstocking) had her kids decked out: George the Jedi, Elizabeth Strawberry Shortcake, and Griffin in the Hat. They were adorable!

The lady of one house along the way was a reporter for a local paper, and asked Mary and I to send pictures of Ladybug Danielle. So we sent pics of her and the gang of kiddos.

Afterwards, we stopped by the Dugans' house, who were just packing up their Subway: Eat Flesh! (Home of the Zombie Foot Long) for the evening, but stayed up with us a little while to hang out, which was a lot of fun. Kylie and her cousin Mary Catherine were especially cool with Danielle, who enjoyed playing with The Cool Older Kids.

By the end of the night, we were all pretty wiped out, except for Danielle, who was cruising a nice sugar high until almost midnight. Next time, Daddy will just have to eat all her candy.

You know, for her own good.
