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. :)

You're allergic to what?

On Wednesday I took CT to get his cast off. He was so pumped!! He only had to wear it 3 weeks, and it was waterproof. That way he could still take showers. It was very nice. Anyway, while we were in there the nurse asked if he was allergic to anything. I said, " no". CT spoke up and said, "I'm allergic to hot water in my ears."......... Excuse me, what? I could not figure out what he was talking about. The nurse and I had to contain our laughter. Afterwards he reminded me that when we were in China last year, he was swimming at Nana's and got water in his ear. This led to an ear infection. I'm allergic to that too, I don't like water in my ears either. :) ha! ha!

Can you say "Virgin"?

I wrote about this on my facebook, but wanted to put it on here for my non fb friends, and to remember. :) The other day I picked up KG from Wee School, and she was singing a new song that she had learned. They have been practicing for their Christmas program. We get in the car and she starts singing, "Virgin Mary had a baby boy." over and over all the while going up an octave each time she sings it. Once she gets to a point that she can't go any higher, she turns to Deacon and says, "Deacon, can you say virgin, virgin, virgin?" :) He just looked at her like she was crazy! So she goes back to singing her song. :)

Happy Veteran's Day!!

On Wednesday we put on our Red, White, and Blue and headed out to the Veteran's Day Parade. The kids were excited about waving their flags, and seeing the parade! We are so thankful and appreciative to all the men and women who have sacrificed to allow us to enjoy the freedoms we have. Your sacrifices do not go unnoticed. I am very proud to say that both my grandfathers, and my father are veterans.

KG and Deacon ready for the parade to start.
Deacon's new thing is to squat when you try to take his picture. :)
Here comes the band. Deacon liked them.
Some of our veterans.
KG thought this little boy was WAY too young to be driving a car. :)

We love our veterans!!

KG's First Sleepover

Since we were gone on KG's 4th birthday, I promised her a sleepover with some of her little friends. They had a GREAT time, and were so good. Here are a few pictures we took.

KG, L, and M. All very close in age. L born in Sept., KG born in Oct., M born in Nov. They love to hang out together.

Deacon also thought he would get in the middle of everything. :)
Just the girls.
KG picked dinner at McD's. They were pretty pumped about their Happy Meals. Here they are deciding on who will get what toy.
Deacon thinks it's pretty fun to have dinner with all these girls. He was pretty funny tonight.
Dancy Party!! Dancing to a little Hannah Montana.
Little table dancers. We teach em' young around here. ha ha!! :)
Cookies and friends. KG requested doo doo cookies. Others probably refer to them as Oatmeal PB Cookies.
Fuzzy Jammies and Socks from Liv. She really liked these.
My Little Pony with changing outfits from Mia. So fun!!
Ready for bed and a movie. :) They are now fast asleep................

JC Comes to Visit!

My best friend from college, Jennifer, came for a visit this past week. Everytime we are together there is always a lot of laughing and a ton of fun. We shopped, ate, and just hung out.

On Tuesday night I had a jewelry party. KG picked out her necklace, had it made, and was out the door. Good thing Nee Nee was there to take her home.
We also made our traditional pancakes and chocolate syrup. The chocolate syrup is homemade and delicious!! This is Deacon's first taste. He LOVED it!!
On Wednesday JC told the kids we would go and get some ice cream. So at the crack of morning KG is telling me she needs to go and wake up JC so she can buy her some ice cream. We stayed true to our word. We picked CT up from school, headed to Sonic for happy hour, and then went to the park. It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!

Here is Deacon taking a turn on the swing.

Thanks for coming JC. We had a GREAT time!! We will plan another get together soon!

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!! We started our Trick or Treating on Thursday night, and continued through the weekend. :)

Darth Vadar aka CT and Nee Nee. A lot of the businesses in our community handed out candy on Friday afternoon. It was CRAZY!! There were people everywhere. We just went to where Nee Nee works, and hit a few other businesses of people we knew.
When we got home CT got his surprise from Mimi. She sent him a cookie basket since he broke his arm. :) He was nice enough to share with all of us. He thought this was pretty cool. He is playing the broken arm card quite well. Everything is, "But I broke my arm." It's not working as well as he would like. ha ha!

CT broke his arm jumping off the neighbor's trampoline. :) BOYS!!
Brothers. These two were ready to get the candy party started. KG wasn't too into taking pictures.

CT and one of his best buddies Stephen. Every time I took a picture of them, Stephen would ask me if I could email it to him. :)
KG and her little friend Paige. I got her to take this picture by telling her she could eat 3 pieces of candy. :)
CT, Stephen, and two BIG Clone Troopers. The boys thought this was cool.
Deacon playing the games.
Argh Matey!! Hope you had a Happy Halloween!!
