Walt Disney World-Fall 2014

We are so proud to announce that, yes – we are going to be having a precious baby boy! He, of course, is arriving this winter and we couldn’t be more happy and excited.

So, to continue the family tradition of fun Disney trips, we headed on a road trip through the south to where else? Walt Disney World in Florida! It was the only perfect way to celebrate Heather’s birthday and to have a family trip for (most) of the Brooks family in anticipation of Baby Boy Liles’ arrival! Road trips are always…different…every single time. With Heather expecting, we tried to make it a slower and more relaxing trip – but our excitement for Disney ended up trumping all and soon enough we were at the Pop Century resort and Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. It was hot, but fun and thank God for the pool and free beverages! It was all about Studio Ghibli in the Japan feature in Epcot and the Dole Whip at Magic Kingdom! We ate incredibly well, pretty much every cuisine and every type of treat. (But most defiantly everything sweet in moderation.)

Soon¬†enough, our road trip began again and we were driving past beautiful houses and beachfronts in Panama City¬† and on to New Orleans for Heather’s birthday. Who doesn’t love lunch at Stanley and beignets at Cafe Du Monde?! A perfect way to cap off a wonderful birthday and trip.

Some things hold a specific memory, a particular place and time that will remind you of the journey you are on. They are simple trees. But we got married by these trees, we said our vows under their branches, we prayed by these trees as the late summer sun filtered through their leaves. And we have returned every year to remind ourselves of where we have been and where we are now. And what is now? It was just the two of us then. Then two puppies in the span of three years. And now in our fifth year? One precious baby on the way.

What the heck is going on around here?! We have a baby on the way. which is amazing and scary and still very new to us. So, these photos are what has been going on – and in no way are strictly a highlight reel. Things have been “real” real around here in our world. Stresses beyond belief, so it’s as if it has been a very long, not so very hot summer. We are struggling in finding a place to live (again), not getting to hang out by the beach, BUT conversely getting ready for our Disney World (again) trip with our family, feeling the baby moving around in there, lots of the (pregnancy) moody blues, as much pool time as possible, and dreaming of winter. We want winter to come as soon as possible.

Oh, and a few baby bump pics, because, well ya know…

It seems like we were stuck in our house for a good long year after Clio had his neuter surgery. But luckily my baby brother came to stay with us for a week, along with my childhood puppy-turned-ladybird Bailey. So, it was an overly full house but a blessing to be with a little slice of family. But Clio is a fast healer and so we decided we needed a day out! We hit up the Crow Collection of Asian Art and the DMA in Dallas and generally had a relaxing day. But not to rest on our laurels, we are also planning for a vacation because for the first time in a long time we haven’t traveled for a good 8 months. And that will not stand!

Where are you, Christmas? You came and went too soon, and we are a week into the new year. But it was still the most wonderful time of the year. Admittedly, it took both of us some extra time to fully embrace the holiday spirit but all it takes is walking into the family house and having it full of family and dogs and Mom’s decorations and treats to make things perfect. We were really blessed to have a week out of town, full of family time and we were spoiled. The boys, Emory and Clio, were spoiled beyond beyond. It was ridiculous. Between certain packages of gifts arriving from wonderful, amazing friends all over to Nancy Elizabeth Brooks – aka Nani-Claus – it was a good time. But the New Year came, and our family made it back here with us just in time to ring in the New Year with food and drink and a hope for the whole of 2014.
