Farewell Fuentes

My dear friend, Jenny is moving to Memphis and I am super excited for the opportunity for her husband and their family but also super sad. I will miss her and her sweet girls.
Jenny came to coach with me 5 years ago. Her hubby was hired as one of the TCU football coaches. She wanted to coach just to get out of the house for a little bit. How lucky could I get!! She was a former college coach and DI volleyball player. We all instantly became good friends!
We hung out together at football manis together but most often just enjoyed some good girl chat and laughs....mostly at Whitney's expense. Just kiddin Whit! :)
Jenny had Cecilia who immediately became a gym rat!!
Now Cecilia is the big sister to Caroline.
Ignore the AWFUL picture of me and focus on the most adorable baby, Caroline!
My kids love playing with Cecilia and I have already promised them we would go visit the Fuentes in Tiger Country! ROAD TRIP!!
C and my girls...
A volleyball in one hand and a popsicle in the to love it! :)
Jenny and her mini me....
Jenny and C came to a game this season... Could Jenny be any prettier pregnant? Not even fair!

I am thankful that God blessed me with such a sweet friend. Jenny is such a devoted wife and wonderful mom. I will miss her and those sweet girls but look forward to all the opportunities that are in store for her and her family. Thank you Jenny for being such a great friend.

My Sweet Uncle Bill

My father is the youngest of four boys. Although I did not ever get to meet my Uncle Charlie and have only seen my Uncle John once, I did get the chance to spend many summers with my sweet Uncle Bill. We had lots of fun hanging with him. I remember driving in his Volkswagon van to his Raquet Club. My sisters and I would run around the place and play while he worked. What single guy do you know that would offer to keep his nieces during the summer! My Uncle Bill was a family man and he loved kids!! He couldn't wait to be a Dad! He eventually gave up Bachelorhood and married my beautiful Aunt Sharon. She is a driven, career-minded woman and I love that about her. She would take my sisters and I to Universal Studios when we would visit. Another fond memory.....

Aunt Sharon and Uncle Bill were soon blessed with 2 gorgeous daughters, Kira and Nicole. Being their father brought so much joy to my Uncle Bill.

Kira's graduation

My Uncle Bill and his girls....

My Uncle Bill stayed active even after he was diagnosed with Parkinsons. He is a Rombeau and he is a fighter. I can still hear my Nan's voice saying that about us Rombeaus. :)

The Rombeaus....I am so glad we were all able to have a reunion. It is always so good to be surrounded by family.

The Rombeau boys...Uncle John, Uncle Bill and my dad.

We got to visit my Aunt Sharon and Uncle Bill in Los Angeles.

I am thankful for all the times I had with my Uncle Bill. So many fond memories I will cherish forever. He was my Uncle and Godfather and I am blessed to have had him in my life. I am so grateful for my Aunt Sharon, the love of his life who took such good care of him until his very last breath. I pray for her and my cousins. The loss of a loved one is difficult but we will be reunited with him again one day. We love you Uncle Bill!! Rest in peace.

The Watts get Loose at the Zoo

On New Years Eve Day it was a beautiful 70 degrees outside. We took advantage of it and headed to the zoo.
The kids love the zoo and were very excited to go.
The animals seemed to enjoy the weather as well.
Of course leave it to Logan and my hubby to go a little wild. ;)
Trinity and I had our fun also. :)
Hubby that a smile I see?

After a few hours we were ready to head home and get some food. Thanks to 1820 Productions for giving us the zoo tickets. Speaking of the reality should be coming out soon. Stay tuned!
