Daddy's Day off

Travis had the day off today. Originally there were Parent/Teacher conferences scheduled, but the teachers voted to do 2 nights instead of a night and a morning.
Parker was excited to have his dad home today!

Daddy and Parker played with toys all afternoon!

What?!? Playtime is OVER?????

Parker and Mommy were happy to have Daddy home all day long!

Look Alikes

We've been asked time and time again who Parker looks like. I can't see any resemblance to myself, however, I do see Travis' forehead. Many other people comment on how they don't see "either of us" but they do see a "Vancil".

The picture on the left is my brother Justin. The picture on the right is Parker....

Silver and Gold

...Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other gold...
I have had 2 extremely close friends for a long grade school....Michele, Krista and I have been friends through many stages of life and had often dreamed of having families and children and living close enough to get together for "play dates".
This is us the summer after our Senior year of high school.
This is us today 10 years later....with kids...still friends after all these years and finally getting our play date!

I had a great time today and am thankful to have Old friends to hang out with and help Parker make some New friends to share his life with!

Let's do it again soon girls!

Long Day

Today is the longest day of school for's parent teacher conference night. Travis left home today at 7:45 A.M. and will not return until about 7:30 P.M.! The day consists of teaching a full day then immediately following dismissal at 3:15 beginning 15 minute conferences at 3:30. Conferences are back to back and allow no time for even a bathroom break! The day is very exhausting and this year Travis gets to do it twice! Once tonight and once on Thursday night.

We felt bad for Daddy so we wore a hat (dad loves Parker in a hat) and a Daddy Bib today in honor of our hard working dad!

I'll take a nap for you dad!

I love you daddy!

Hang in there! We'll see you tonight!

Love You!

Halloween 2009

Whew! What a day Halloween was! This was a small Holiday...we better rest up for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Parker was a clown fish for his first Halloween. What a cute little "Nemo" he was!

Parker started the day with Grandma and Grandpa visiting him at his house around 10:45AM.

After Gma and Gpa Vancil left, we planned an undercover operation to surprise Gma and Gpa Stecher...
We loaded the fish in the car....

Dropped him on gma and gpa's porch......rang the door bell and RAN!
Grandma and Grandpa love their fishy!

Once we got home it was time for trick or treating fun!
Emily the butterfly thought it was pretty funny to trick-or-treat. She liked Parker's soft head.

Miss Candy Corn Kelsi and the world champion boxer Kannon were teaching Parker the best routes for the most candy.
Then we had a scary lion raid our candy dish...he knew just what he was looking for!
The Carter lion was thinking about eating Parker fish....
Parker fish thought that was funny!
Hey....where's my bottle???!!!!???

Our Halloween ended finally at 7:30PM.....a LONG day! Parker was pooped!

Happy Halloween
