A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

Santa Memories

Christmas 2004
Christmas 2005
Christmas 2006
Christmas 2007

Today we went and got our pictures taken with Santa. I thought I would include pictures from the past for fun. KG has been talking for weeks that she is going to sit on Santa's lap and not cry because she is a big girl. I was a little skeptical, BUT to my surprise she went right up there, sat on his lap, and even told him what she wanted for Christmas. CT wanted an OU football jersey (which he already owns one :) ) and a Lightning McQueen shake-n-go car. I think Santa may come through with him on that one. KG asked for a bicycle like Bubba's and a new baby....to add to the other 50 she already has. :) I guess a girl can never have too many babies. :) Merry Christmas!

KG's First Haircut

KG's first hair cut.
Mrs. Janie cut KG's hair. She did a good job. KG sat very still.
All finished! But we weren't ready to smile quite yet. :)
KG chillin' with her harmonica. :)

Today we went to get KG's first haircut. She did so good. While we were waiting on Mrs. Janie KG asked me if it would hurt. I said no. So she then asked if it would tickle. I told her yes. :) She sat in the chair like a pro and let her trim her hair. She was really serious though and would not smile for me. We celebrated with a happy meal from McDonalds. She also got to pick a toy when she was done. She chose a harmonica. :)

Bloggy Christmas Tour of Homes

Big Momma is doing a Christmas Tour of Homes. It is a lot of fun to see everyone's decorations and get some new ideas for yourself. It will take you a day or so to check them out. Hopefully I will have some down time during Christmas to spend some time looking. I posted some of our Christmas decorations earlier with the kids, but this is my official tour blog. :) ENJOY!! Merry Christmas!

Welcome to our home! Enjoy the tour.
Nativity brought back to use from Jerusalem. I have great in-laws. This is one of my favorite things.

Off to HOG country!!

Whooooooooo PIG Sooooooooie!

Well, we were so blessed to be hit by the ice storm for a second time this year. For real we are blessed that we have friends with a generator and are so gracious to let us come and stay at their house. Thank you Paul and Cathie. :) We owe you BIG TIME!!! Since we were without power we went over to Fayetteville with Cathie. She had a conference over there, so we tagged along. While she was in her conference we had lunch with Uncle Chad, and also payed a surprise visit to MeeMaw. She was thrilled to see us! I also took the kids down to the square to see all the lights and to help them remember what electricity looked like. ha ha!! It is so pretty down there. The kids thought the razorback was really cool, but CT informed me that Daddy was not going to like this at all. :) Seeing that Daddy thinks the razorbacks are shooie! CT is a loyal OU fan, but he also helps to cheer on the Razorbacks because his Mommy and Mimi are fans. :) My brother informed me that this was the last year for the lights. I sure hope he is wrong. On a "brighter" note, the lights are back on and things are back to normal for now. I think they are predicting snow this weekend. We will have to sit tight and pray the lights stay on. :)

Happy 4th Birthday CT!!!

One of his favorite gifts. He is addicted.
CT Bowling
Cayden and CT
CT's Cake.

This past weekend we celebrated CT's 4th birthday. He wanted a CARS party at the bowling alley. So that is what we did. All the grandparents were able to come and a few of his little friends. They had a GREAT time! CT is very excited that he is four. He also is very concerned whether or not his clothes are a 4T. He informs me that he is too big for a 3T now. :) He is a mess, but makes us laugh. KG is still singing Happy Birthday to him. :)

Vacation with Friends

Loaded up and ready to go. We had stuff stashed everywhere. :)
CT, KG, Hannah, Addison. CT and Hannah are two months apart. KG and Addison are 6 days apart. The whole time we were there the house was NEVER quiet.
Watching the tree at Silver Dollar City. The lights changed with the music. It was really pretty. The kids loved it. KG would have stayed there the whole time.
Daddy and kids at the crazy house.
Tinker the talking tree.

We packed up the kids and the car and headed to Branson with some friends of ours. We went to relax and do nothing. The guys played golf and we got some shopping in. We also set through a boring time share presentation to be able to go to Silver Dollar City for Free. :) It was worth it. Plus we took the kids and the lady sped through the presentation because they were all over the place. ha! Silver Dollar City was COLD, but beautiful! Needless to say I did not get any pictures of the lights. My batteries on my camera were going dead and I was too cold. :) The kids had a great time playing together. They are all very close in age. It was nice to get away and see old friends.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.......
A little blurry, but you get the idea....
CT and KG enjoying their hot chocolate. KG just opted for the marshmallows.
"Helping" to decorate.

This past Sunday night we stayed home and started decoration for Christmas. T and CT went to church and by the time they came home KG and I had gotten quite a bit done. Both the kids were WOUND up. We had frito chili pie for dinner and then a little bit later on we had hot chocolate and snowman cookies. I think the kids had a little too much sugar. :) We all had a great time and we are ready for Christmas.

Big Weekend!

CT surfing.
KG surfing.
CT and Keara in the bounce around.
KG eating Sonic Ice. :)
On your mark....get set......GO!

I am behind on my blogging. The weekend before Thanksgiving was our disciple now or BIG WEEKEND as we call it around here. :) The kids had a blast! Of course we were unable to stay for the teaching time due to the fact that my kids are not old enough to sit still for more than 30 seconds and stay quiet. We left quickly. :) On Saturday we had a lot of inflatables and stuff for the kids to do, so my kids jumped right in and tried it all. They had a great time. KG kept saying she wanted to ride the bull. I would have let her, but there was no speed control on it. They both did a good job at "surfing". :)

10 years ago........

CT and Daddy with the OBU "TISON" aka Bison
T and good friend Beau from college.

This past weekend we headed over to T's OBU for his 10 year college reunion. It's hard to believe it has been that long. CT was so excited to get to go and see his Daddy's school. We took a little tour of their new fitness facility. It is REALLY nice! I asked T if he felt like he got jipped? He said most definintely. We also took in some basketball games while we were there. CT was a little confused on the mascot. T's OBU is the Bison and my OBU is the Tiger so CT kept calling it the OBU Tison's. I think he finally got it figured out by the end of the night. Both kids had a ball at the game, and we got to catch up with some old friends. Next year it's my turn! :)

Backyard Bonfire

FIRE!!! We had a hose ready just in case. :)
The kiddos.
Sami and CT attempting to roast their marshmallows.
KG eating one of who knows how many smores.

The other night we had a backyard bonfire with our neighbors behind us.

It finally got cold enough to have such and event. We are not technically in town so we are allowed to have a fire burning in our backyard. :) The kids thought it was a BLAST! We roasted marshmallows and made smores. I think they would have eaten until they puked had we let them. We enjoyed just sitting around and watching the embers burn.
