Some Christmas 2009

I love this photo. Doesn't Bowden just look like he is in heaven?
My dad and Sid arrived a bit later than expected due to ICE Christmas morning, oh, and the fact they slid off of 635 sideways 40 ft and had to be towed out. They were okay, and the car was too! We were just thankful that they were okay!
Emaline received a 'hair' kit from Aunt Dee last week at Mammy's Christmas, lets just say that BOP really needed his hair really needed curled and straightened!
Bop and Sid gave E ALL these beautiful bracelets that she wore all at once. I asked my sweet princess to smile and she was all business. This photo actually scares me a bit.

Parker got a bow and arrow set from Santa, so off to the snow we went! Notice he hit the fence above the target.
Parker also received a remote control dinosaur from Santa.
Lauren and Isaiah from Nana's Christmas.
Isaiah was just happy that he had a banana in his stocking.
My BIL documenting, as was I!
My Mamma(Memaw) and I!
Mamma and her great grand kids! I also love the Bowden is holding a car, which is how he looks every day!
Some fun love.

PhotobucketI love these photos of E on her bed. The last photo documents her new 'face' which she gives me when she is tired of having a camera pointed at her. She bugs her eyes out and closes her mouth during her smile. I still love her!

Hang tight as I change the blog up a bit for 2010. Just some small changes, or big ones depending how you look at it.

Some December catch up

Parker had a Christmas program, which was an experience. Let's just say that I will be getting there 2 hours early next year so that I am not on the back row, and that Bowden will have a baby sitter. Parker did great! The music teacher did an amazing job and all the grades were just wonderful.
This is our sweet friend Camille. She and Parker have become great friends as well as carpool buddies. After an unfortunate event, I guess, they "BROKE UP" today. I almost laughed out loud when he told me, but I waited until I shut the car door! He even tried to explain a break up to me, which was just as humorous. I texted Camille's mom, and she did some investigating and we think they are just on 'a break' and will totally forget about this in 2 weeks when we begin carpooling again. C's mom also think that Emaline and Olivia (C's sister) may also help in the reconciliation.
Please notice our FIRE in the fireplace. This is our second year with this fire. It may not produce much heat, but it cuts down on allergies.
I know that E's eyes are closed. It happens.

I love him.
Bowden was sitting just like the others until my camera arrived. I love all these peeps.
This was at preschool during Emaline's party. I love her.
Don't forget Santa! A friend gave us this suit and we have been wearing it like crazy. At preschool, I have to stay AWAY from this guy because he screams and hollers when he sees me. SOOO, I sneak around, hide behind trash cans, fall down stairs and try to dash by the 2 way window thing that doesn't work at all. I wanted to see him visit Santa, so I snuck or sneaked, whatever, into the foyer where he was and hid behind my camera for a while. Of course he noticed me, and this photo was taken right before he knew I was the one behind the camera. OH, I love him.
Emaline's performance was rocking! She did a wonderful job. Did I mention that I love her.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year was our year to be in Paris for Thanksgiving. I love my cousins. We were missing quite a few this year but still had a pretty impressive group.
Bowden decided he didn't need a nap on Thanksgiving, so he went and went and went, until this happened about 8pm. OUT!
This was one of our attempts of a family photo. Notice the remote in Emaline/My hand! We tried! She just couldn't get the remote pointed at the camera and everyone lost their patience/melted down.

Paris was a fun time this year. I WORKED like crazy on Tues/Wednesday. Watch the blog the next few days to see a few from each session.

UPDATE! See post below!

WHY! So, we don't have stitches, but now we have scratches ALLLLLL over his left cheek! We are suppose to go cheer on a sweet friend play basketball tonight but worried about all the looks we will get! In this photo: KNOT on head, BLACK EYE, SCRATCHES ON FACE! Just click on the will see!

You should see the other guy!

What? You are probably asking yourself...check out B's eye!

Yes, in color, that is much better. Bowden was quite the helper yesterday at Bara Church. He was helping his daddy move a rolling rack...when a ratchet strap fell off the top shelf and attacked him. We are very blessed that it missed his eye. He recovered nicely and went about his day as usual. Excuse the debris on his face. Strapping him in at lunch seems to be one of the only ways to keep him still!Just my sweet E!
These photos were taken before church. Notice the nice lump on his forehead? That is from a fall last week into the fireplace. I bet we have stitches before he turns 2.
I had to document this outfit. He was head to toe Parker 2004! Parker's sweater, Parker's jean's, Parker's shoes, I love him.
These 2 guys are my Monday running buddies. I love the connection they have and how Emaline has really stepped up to be helpful. We still have our litle struggles, but that girl can be so sweet. hum. most of the time.
Oh, I almost published without scrolling down and you would be wondering what in the world is this! Well, this was Cassidie's birthday present from us. I took some photos a few weeks ago at her game and created this little piece of art for her. I do like digital scrapbooking, just wish I could spread all my stuff out to see what all I have accumulated. I had my lab mount it and I got her this easel and sprayed it black and tied the bow. I think it turned out real cute.

Now I can publish. Oops. Can I do a post with out Parker....well, scroll down a post and check out his turkey!

The Turkey

NO, I am not talking about my P, I am talking about this cute little turkey!
We had a family project to decorate this sweet turkey, and I let him have free reign. I pulled out lots of craft objects and we created a plan. I think he did a great job! NOW, excuse the blue trash can! My grandmother bought me that trashcan when I moved into my first apartment in 1999! I just can't get rid of it! I know it is time to maybe replace it in the kitchen...
Love you turkeys!

Sitting here

Making out my grocery list/menu for the week. This week's menu will have some new additions due to a new cookbook I received at preschool last week. It is the Ko Jo Kai cookbook from HARDING, a gift from a fellow Kojie/mom of giraffe/coworker. This cookbook is red and white, not the pink and green I would have preferred! HA! AND it has ladybugs on it, are they the club mascot? I am off to see what treasures it holds! Have a great Monday!

Halloween 2009

A view from the back...

And one from the front...sort of...

Meet a very happy Charlie Brown!

And Ms. Stephanie saved the day with THE bat costume tears were shed about when we found out it had been sold out! SHE MADE THIS! HAND CUT HIS NAME and BAT!

This one was from the sing along at his school.
My coteacher and I dressed as Christmas trees for a costume.

The pumpkin.

I took Stacey's camera with us trick or treating in Denton, so I don't have a photo of my kids with the MECHANICAL BULL! Yes, Parker and Emaline both rode the bull!
