Here are some pics of my kiddos early Saturday evening. This is what I wish would have stayed true as the evening went on. Not the case, going to take pictures at the Wright's, Bayler of course didn't like that plan so what did he do, throws a fit! Braxton aka my little eating machine wanted nothing but dinner and I was stressing about it all. But we did end the evening on a happy note once the kids (I hate to say it) got what they wanted.......Hanging out in his undies at Gigi's eating candy and Braxton chilling for an hour in her high chair munching down all kinds of goodies. We hope you enjoyed your Halloween as well.
Yesterday the kids and I went to visit my Papa King and Grandma Nancy. So yes my children's great grandparents. This is my grandfather on my dad's side. He was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease some months back. He is doing well, still keeping up with his land, routine doctor appointments, and communicating through an amazing keyboard gadget that speaks for him. This disease is affecting his breathing. So he does a breathing machine most of the day and a nurse visits them weekly to keep track of his breathing patterns. My grandma Nancy is by his side at all times. She is doing an amazing job keeping his spirits high. My grandpa has 7 children, who all try to poke in and see him, 16???? grandkids, and I am not even going to try to do great grandbabies. We all have him and Nancy in our prayers. Thanks for letting us come visit!
We had a busy weekend. Friday we celebrated Bryan's birthday with friends and family. Woke up to an amazing breakfast made by my mom for the birthday boy. Chicken Fried Steak, gravy, hash browns, and scrabble eggs. It was delicious! Then Bryan opened presents, took a nap, and watched football. While he was having a relaxing day, my mom and I were entertaining the kiddos. I mastered No Bake cookies on my first try. I was very proud of myself. We ended the evening with a great dinner made by yours truly. Sunday we had Bryan's family over to continue the celebration. Thanks to everyone who made it a special weekend!
I love this article Shelley gave us. He is so adorable!
He enjoys anytime he spends outdoors
On Saturday my hubby will be celebrating his 29th birthday! His last year in his 20s. We have a fun filled weekend planned. We love you so much and are so grateful to have you in our lives. I love the father you are to our children, the son you are to our parents, the friend you are to our family and friends, and the the amazing man you are to me. Happy birthday honey!
Every Halloween my cousin Nicole and I try to get our kiddos together for pics. This gets more and more challenging the more kids we add and them wanting nothing to do with us. But still somehow we manage to get a couple. We got and quickly held their attention this time by singing, Itsy Bitsy Spider. Hope you enjoy
I was trying to make her smile, so she laughed at me instead
This is right before she charged at me to get the camera
Already doing chores and so happy about it
Mommy's little helper (Gotta love the morning hair)
So Braxton will be a 1 year old in one month......I can't believe it. She is already my best bud. She is so much fun and pretty funny if I may say so. She has been walking since 9 1/2 months. She has 5 teeth ( 3 on top and 2 on bottom) She says mama, dada, baybay, bubba, gigi, papa, and many more sounds that I swear are words but Bryan thinks I am crazy! She plays cars and dinos with her brother. Her dinosaur sound and car sound are very similar.....GRRRRRRR. Bayler enjoys it (sometimes) She loves playing peekaboo. She is still making her sleeping habits a surprise each night, some good some crazy. She loves to cuddle, already carries her blanky around, just like big brother. I am blessed in so many ways, but my kids are my great accomplishments.
My sister Kelsy turns 16 today. Wow has time flown by. She is an amazing young lady. I enjoy every time we spend together. I am so proud of her and love the way she approaches life. She is honest, respectful, polite, beautiful, funny, etc...I mean I could go on and on! We love her so much and I love the friendship that her and I are building. Hope you have one to remember!
I married my best friend in September of 2004. We have two beautiful children, Bayler 6 and Braxton 3. They keep me very busy as a stay at home mother. I am very close to my mom who visits me and the kids on a regular basis. We live in our hometown, b/c both sides of our family are close and couldn't think of a better place to raise our family. I wouldn't change anything about my life, I am blessed every day.
