This week was Vacation  Bible School at our church! The kids had a blast and so did I!  We have been so busy since school has been out. We traveled to Mississippi for Londen's graduation and then went on a 10 day trip across West Texas and New Mexico! I promise to keep up with my blog this summer... especially for you Nancy!!!

December ~Full of Excitment!

Wow! What a busy month.. So much has been going on and I have been unable to get on here and blog! It is the day after Christmas and I have to say.. it was quite amazing.. watching my 2 kids look out under the tree Christmas morning to see if Santa came!! WOW! The month started off with many Christmas parties and Abby's Dance party as well as her school performance. She did so well in both of them!  Then we had Wyatt's street block party.. The kids had fun eating fun foods and popcorn and riding the train! Then, we had the Christmas Eve service at church where Stephen had to speak and Abby and I lit the Advent candle during the service.  The Stephen and I were asked to serve communion.  It was a Christmas Eve I will never forget... Now.. on Monday my little man turns 1! I can't believe it! We are excited Mamaw and Papaw and Londen and Parris are coming in town next week for a belated X'mas with them and to celebrate Abby and Wyatt's birthdays!!!

A Special Day!

Well, as most of you know Abby has been taking gymnastics since she was 10 months old and any little milestone is a big deal! She loves going each week and adores her coaches.  We are so glad to have a great group of friends in her class as well.  Today, Abby and some of her friends advanced to new levels! Congrats Abby! We love you! Congrats to Riley, Angelina and Catalina as well!!!

I am so late posting Halloween pics but wanted to get them on here. We had so much fun this year.  Abby was super excited about being Tinkerbell! I had to hide her costume for almost a month. I KNEW if she saw it she would wear it EVERYDAY!  Wyatt was a Skeleton! He was precious and enjoyed his first Halloween! We live on the best street! Everyone is always doing something and inviting everyone to their events. One family had a block party for all the kids who live on our culdesac.  They had hotdogs, chips, drinks and dessert for them before they began trick or treating! It was a blast! And yes.. Stephen had fun too! Halloween has always been a favorite  holiday of his!!!

New Mexcio Trip

Stephen surprised me with a 2 night getaway to Albuquerque and Santa Fe New Mexico! I turned 34 on October 17th.. I can't believe I am 34! We had an amazing time! We went hiking the first day.. Stephen and I hiked 6 miles to the top of the Sandia Crest.. Then the next day we drove into Santa Fe and had an amazing time downtown in the historic area off of Route 66! The weather was awesome and I was glad to get some much needed relaxing!!! But I was ready to see Wyatt and Abby! Thank you Stephen for a wonderful birthday present! I love you!

Jackson, Mississippi

Poor Wyatt passed out after the fair.

Abby and Parris

Parris, Abby, Londen and Wyatt

Abby and the Pony

A couple of weeks ago I traveled home with Abby and Wyatt to visit Mamaw and Papaw and Abby's favorite cousins, Londen and Parris! It rained the entire time but that did not stop us from going to the Fair. Abby begged Papaw to take her so she could ride the ponies! She loved it! Although it was a quick trip, I survived flying on a plane with both kids and we made it back in one piece! Thank you Mom and Dad for a wonderful birthday weekend! The cake was yummy and I love, love, love my present!

October is finally here!!! YAY! I love the Fall and can't wait for all of the upcoming activities we have planned! BUT.... no pics to share our our adventures last week because our camera is MIA!! I can't find it.. The only thing I can guess is we left it at the Zoo. Stephen took off last week and we took the kids to the zoo. I had some great pics to share of Abby and of Wyatt enjoying his second trip to the zoo. If I find it, I'll post! Wyatt turned 9 months on Monday! I can't believe he will be a year old in a few months! And... Abby will be 4! She had her Storybook Festival at school today and went as Little Red Riding Hood. I wish every day was storybook day because she had no problem wearing her outfit all day! For those of you who know Abby, she changes clothes at least 4-5 times a day!!! Everyone is doing well and we are looking forward to the Fall Festival at church this weekend and Me and the Kids are heading out to Mississippi on the 10th to visit Mamaw and Papaw and take our annual trip to the State Fair. This had been a tradition since I was very small.. Abby has been every year and this will be Wyatt's first trip! Hope I find my camera or I guess I'll have to break down and buy a new one! :( or should I say :)!!YIPPEE! We have a very busy month ahead of us and I am so excited to get it started..

My Mother In Law has started a business making the cutest dresses. The pictures just don't do them any justice. She makes Knot dresses, jumpers, pillowcase dresses and much more. Check out her website to see some of her Christmas Jumpers.

She also has started making Onesies for boys with the ties sewn on for special occasions. She just sold one with an A&M tie.. My father in law is also selling his products. As most of you know he made Abby's precious playhouse and swingset along with her bedroom furniture. He is now selling his doll cradles and child rocking chairs. I'll get some pics soon for you to see! They are both so talented and have some great products for sale!!!!
