About Me

We are a family of five (yes we count our dog) who are loving every minute that the Lord has blessed us with!

I am not usually a superstitious person. I feel as if it is almost sinful. Even so, as a child, I LOVED fortune cookies. As I have gotten older, I have been very frustrated with fortunes turning into words of wisdom or witty sayings. As we were eating at Doc Chey's last night with our dear friends, I was complaining about this. As I did, I opened my fortune... and this is what it said...So, who knows. Maybe Baby S will choose to arrive a little early?

Belly Update

WOW... I know. My belly is HUGE! Still loving inch and every pound though. I love to feel the baby move around. It entertains us for hours on end. Let's hope it isn't as big of a baby as Ryan was. 10 lbs, 11oz. WHEW!

We had a wonderfully full Christmas. We went to Ryan's parents, my Grandmothers and my parents all in the span of 24 hours. Wheew. We were exhausted, but it was a lot of fun.

Snoop opens his stocking!

He eventually had his whole body in his stocking trying to get the last bone at the bottom!
Looking in amazement at all Santa brought him!
Snoop had to go ahead and open his stocking last night. Tonight we go to his Grandma and Papaw's (Ryan's parents)and tomorrow we head to Grammy and Clyde's (My parents) house. Since there are other dogs at these houses, we didn't want to lug all of his presents. Along with all of his stocking treats, Snoop also got a HUGE candy cane full of bones from his Aunt Moo Moo. I tell you one thing, this dog lives the life!!!
Oh and P.S. - So that Ryan isn't totally mortified, Snoop has a coat on because Megan (Moo Moo) and I had just finished walking him in the rain. Ryan hates the coat!

School Christmas Program

My oh so excited kids singing.
Teachers (and our principal in black) "jingle bell rockin'"
Mrs. McDougal noticing about 30 seconds too late that the other jingle bell rockers had left the performance and she is still playing her air guitar. The whole room erupted!
Thursday was our last day at school. We had a Christmas Program first thing in the morning, which basically means 5,000 packed into a very small place and a lot of kids singing at the top of their lungs (and out of tune). It is pretty stinkin' hilarious. I was sitting where I could see the Pre-K through 1st really good. They were too funny. After this, we went back to our rooms for breakfast, watched a movie and bid the kids fairwell. Wheew. God Bless the teachers who last a whole day on their last day before break.

You think Wesley likes Snoop?

This is our friend's child Wesley. He LOVES to make Snoop bark. I had a great time video taping this. I hope our child is as entertained by Snoop as Wesley is!

This Weekend We...

Went to go see Dreco sing downtown. Good job buddy!
Had the Laney's over for a bit. Ray makes himself at home doesn't he?!
Ryan finally let Maggie cut the fro!
walked downtown for the Twighlight Tour with the Laneys

saw Jazzy dressed up as Cinderella in the freezing cold. If anyone has personality, it is this child. She was mad at her mom because she wouldn't let her wear her slippers too!
Ryan was off for the first time in FOREVER. We had a lot of fun. Our homegroup went downtown for the Twiglight Tour and then went to Dugan's Pub afterwards. The Christmas Season is finally on!
