New Blog Address

Hey guys! Since this blog was mainly used for our lives in Europe, we decided to have a new http address with a more family feel, instead of the town we lived in in Belgium.

The old posts are all transferred, all we need is YOU!

So, head on over to www.thedotsonfam.blogspot.com and see the new look. And...PLEASE CHANGE the old address in your blogroll with our NEW ADDRESS!

See you guys over at our new home!

Morning Smiles

Knox is happiest in the mornings. Stephen and I love the huge smiles and happy demeanor...we could just eat him up!

Enjoy a little piece of our heaven-

Hopefully you could ignore the sunlight coming in and tune out my obnoxious mommy voice!

Aquarium and DALLAS!!!

This past week Knox and I had fun visitors from out of town...both named Sarah! Sarah C. flew in from Belgium to visit, and Sarah F. and Dean from Houston. We loved getting to see both ladies, and sweet Dean and Knox loved chillin'. At least we think so.
We decided to hit up the Dallas World Aquarium with the kiddos. It was awesome. Knox slept the entire time, but Dean was in awe of all the new creatures and big fish. The adults enjoyed the sites, too. Too bad we forgot the cameras...iPhone pics will have to do!

Minimal danger, but notice his eyes opened to be sure


Dean loved the fish

The next afternoon, Sarah C., Knox and I headed out to Southfork Ranch to catch the tour of "Dallas." Sarah had watched the series' re-runs as a kid in Scotland, so she was quite nostalgic. It was before my time here in the states, but our tour guide brought it to life for us...and insisted we take pictures all over the house. I again forgot my camera (won't make it a habit, no worries), so these are "non-iPhone user" quality, i.e. blurry.

Stephen and I took some pics for Sarah C. to have when she goes back across the pond, so I thought I'd share.

His shirt says, "Kind of a big deal." Obviously!

Happy 4th!

Cooler than it typically is at this time of year, we were able to get out and enjoy the neighborhood 4th of July parade. Knox and the girls loved it!!










Great Great Aunt Kisses

We had the priviledge of taking Knox down to see his Great-Great-Aunt Arjorie last night. He loved getting to meet her, and I think it's safe to say the feeling was mutual!!

Arjorie is a grandmother to me, so it was very special sharing our little man with her. I love her dearly, and it means a lot to have these pictures!!




Picture Chair

I said earlier that I would be taking his monthly pictures in the moses basket...that was until we went to Wisteria.. They will now be taken in this little gem :) And just for my records, he's 9-weeks in these!
