Preparing for Christmas

Getting ready to go pick Bay up and then off to get a Christmas Tree

I knew I would be holding the camera during the cutting of the tree, so I had to snap a photo of me and little Miss!

Here we go!!!!!

Which one do we like????

This one is just right! "I will help you daddy"

Some Christmas decor in our entry way

A little more in our dining room

So here is our tree we decided on! Forgive the lighting, I could never get it just right!

Hope you are enjoying decorating for Christmas like we are!

Happened and Happenings

Since my last post many things have been going on, first I was sick....I mean sick. I don't think I have been that sick since before Bayler was born. Thanks to Bryan and my mom we all got threw it. From there my little ones have returned to runny noses. I am trying to keep us all sanitized because I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy what I had so I for sure don't want any family members getting it.
Bryan has returned to hunting! We went out as a family and watched for deer from our vehicle. Of course kids got restless so I brought snacks to take care of that problem. We saw 3 nice bucks and 7 to 8 does. 3 came right up to our car. We stopped in and talked to Grammie, Aunt Sharon, and Aunt Judy before they went to Wednesday church.
Finally getting some consistent hours of non coughing sleep, the night came that Braxton climbed and fell out of her bed. This freaked me out, she landed who knows how but definitely on our wood floors. She was crying like crazy almost to the point where we were going to take her to the emergency room. I was able to rock her to sleep hours later, then because I am a worry wart I slept with her in Bayler's bed. So boys in one room and girls in the other!!!! Well Sadie slept with Bryan and Bayler and Sam slept with us girls. Friday morning immediately broke her bed down to the ground and she has been sleeping great ever since! SHOOSH
We had a busy birthday parties weekend, great time with our friends and then with Bayler and Braxton's friends.
Now we are just getting ready for Thanksgiving. We hope you have a blessed day with friends and family. We can't wait to get together with all of ours!

I can't believe it is almost here

This Saturday November 13th, my little girl will be 1 year old. I honestly can't believe it. She is such an amazing little girl. She is loved so much by everyone who knows her. She came at such an important time in our lives. She has brought such joy ever since we found out we were pregnant with her. She completes our family. Bayler can't get enough of her, Bryan is just over the moon about his baby girl, and well me.....I soak in every moment I have with her and dream of the many more her and I will share. She is funny, loud, sensitive, a dancer, an eater, a talker, an animal lover, and such a cuddle bear. We love Braxton McKynsey!

Meeting your brother for the first time

First time in Daddy's arms

You must get use to all the kisses
