First Day of School 2011

In Abbie, Family Fun, Photos by Les BrownLeave a Comment

There was a lot of excitement around BrownTown this morning as Sweet AbbieGirl had her first day of school. Yep. I know. I can’t believe it either. I feel like she’s still way too little to be doing something like that, but she’s not. She’s a big school-going girl now. Crazy. We did a few fun things this morning to …

Okay, so we didn’t actually take these on Easter, but they were the clothes the kids wore on Easter.  We took these in a field of wildflowers next to the Richardson Library.  Really close to our house and a great little spot for this kind of thing.

Made You Look

Okay. I really know nothing much about Rob Bell’s new book or exactly why John Piper is so mad at him. I’m pretty sure Charlie Sheen is not involved. However, while you’re here, why not read up a bit on our upcoming adoption or other fun stuff about our family?

Dancing Fools

In Abbie, Family Fun, Silly Saturdays by DesiBrownLeave a Comment

I can’t even remember how this tradition got started in BrownTown but we like to make our kids dance. We’ll make them dance for just about anything. Some days they might have to dance for ice cream and other days they may have to dance to get to watch a show on tv. Sometimes when we are really wild and …

So, this year we stayed home and did New Year’s Eve BrownTown style.  We ate a lot, played a fun new game that the kids had been wanting to try and did our own indoor fireworks.  Desi got the kids a package of glowsticks.  We busted them out and turned off the lights and the kids had a blast. I …

BrownTown Christmas 2010

BrownTown Christmas 2010 was absolutely one of our best.  The kids had a great day and it was actually somewhat relaxing.  No big crazy meal or difficult plan.  Just having a great time together. Christmas Eve was a bit of another story.  We had four services at Watermark (2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 11pm) so I was really busy all day …

BrownTown Christmas Tree 2010

In Family Fun, Holidays by Les BrownLeave a Comment

Today we went in search of BrownTown Christmas Tree 2010. Since living in Dallas we’ve always gotten our tree at Home Depot – quick, easy, and cheap, but not very high on the family experience scale. In Oregon, we trudged through waist-deep snow in the National Forest and cut down a tree, but that’s another story. Anyway, we decided that …
