Please Pray for Karly

Please keep my cousins baby Karly in your prayers. She is 5 months old and in the hospital with RSV. She has been in since Friday night and is still running fever. I will keep you posted on how she is doing.

Meet My Nephew!

I can't tell who he favors more. Can you?

Brady says "Luke, you ALWAYS get to see them- it's my turn now!"

In case you haven't heard... I am officially an aunt! Here is a picture of Duke! Isn't he a cutie? I also took a picture of Luke & Brady with EE & Nonah (AuntErin & Uncle Noah). Luke loves it when he gets to see them- we miss them so much!

A Fun Time Was Had By All!

Happy 14 week birthday Brady!

Luke with Cody & Mason at the kiddo table!

Happy Thanksgiving! Let me start by wishing Brady at happy 14 week birthday! I think he thoroughly enjoyed himself today. Lots of people to hold him!

Our Thanksgiving Day began with lunch at my dad's house which was really delicious & fun. Then we came home for everyone to get a good nap in before dinner at the Allen's house. Pretty much everyone from Caleb's family was there with the exception of one aunt who will be coming in Saturday for the playoff game. My family was able to join us as well- which was really nice to have everyone all in one place! Luke had so much fun with Caleb's cousin's boys which you saw above. Needless to say we are full to the brim and will sleep well tonight. I hope everyone else had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have so much to be Thankful for this year!

Thanksgiving Cookies

Don't these look yummy?!?

Don't mistake this face- this is Luke's classic "cheeeese smile" :)

Yay! Thanksgiving is here! That means we get to see our family members we don't get to see that often- Aunt Kaitlen came home from UMHB and invited Luke over tonight to make Thanksgiving cookies & spend the night. Luke could not wait until time to go- he was so excited all day long. When I asked him if he was going to eat lots and lots of cookies he said "Mommy, can I have TWO??" (one is usually the limit)! He starts running, and I mean running, all over the place when he has to much sugar. However, since he is staying the night...
Just kidding Aunt Kate!!!
They had fun and took some cute pictures.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Luke & Alex

Yesterday I kept Luke's friend Alex for a little while. The boys had lots of fun playing in the backyard. I really enjoyed listening to their conversations. While Alex was in the car headed towards the gate Luke ran over and said "Alex, the gate is NOT open!!!" It was so cute.

Thanksgiving Numero Uno...

Tonight we went to my grandma's house for Thanksgiving. YUMMY! Unlike some folks, I can eat turkey & dressing over and over around Thanksgiving. Since we only get that kind of food once a year I am up for lots & lots!

Here is a picture my cousin and I took of our babies who are only 6 weeks apart. Meet Brady & Luke's cousin Karly! Isn't she adorable!!

Three Months TODAY!

Today is Brady's three month birthday. Complicated...I know. I never have figured out if I should track his age by weeks or months, so I decided to do both! Yesterday was his 13 week birthday, but today is his 3 month birthday...

Here is a picture I took of him this morning. I got lots of cute ones, but I liked this one the best. He is really starting to show his little personality off- such a cutie!

Luke's Thanksgiving Feast

Today I was able to go eat lunch with Luke at school for the annual Thanksgiving Feast! It was lots of fun and lots of good food (Chick Fil A of course!). We had chicken nuggets, french fries, corn on the cob, pudding, and fruit roll ups! Luke's teacher, Ms. Kim is super sweet; she must have a special gift to keep all those two year olds in order. They all listen so well to her. I hope you like these pictures!

Operation Christmas Child

Since we lived in Waco we have taken part in Operation Christmas Child and when we moved back to Pearland, I started heading it up at our church. Each year has been good, we usually do about 60-70 boxes in our church. Well, this year our church did 287 boxes!

Today was the day to take them to the official Operation Christmas Child drop off spot- so here is a picture of all of them on the table. I am so proud of our church! Yay Crosspoint Fellowship! If you are interested in this project for this year or next please let me know and I can get you details. Collection week for this year is all this week and ends on Friday.

Brady's 12 week old Birthday!

Hello Friends,

Today Brady is 12 weeks old! My my my- I can't believe how fast time goes by. It seems like we are finally getting into a groove now- which makes it a lot easier to plan things. I am still getting used to being tied down for three naps a day though- YUCK! Sadly, Brady doesnt always get to sleep his naps in his bed; we are sometimes on the run while he is napping. He doesnt seem to mind that much though.Align Center

Here are some pictures I took of the boys today. Ever tried to get two kids under three to smile at the same time??? As you can see, we still have some perfecting to do...

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood???

Not really! It has been raining for two days. Yuck! Do you realize how hard it is to be stuck inside the house for two days with a 2 1/2 year old boy? My goodness. We have done everything we can possibly do inside- Where is the sun?
Anyway...I hope you like these pics we took.

My Maiden Voyage...

I am officially in! After following everyone else's blog, I have decided to join in on some of the fun. I will say that it took me close to forever to get this all set up and as you can see- I still have a long way to go. I am so impressed with how nice all of your blogs look. Now I know how much work you guys put into them.
Thanks for stopping by- check back soon for some pics!
