What a Season

My coaching season officially came to an end on Saturday, as the West Rowan Falcons won the 3A State Championship in football. Way to go guys! It was a very rainy, cold, day...but the Falcons were HOT! Very excited to share in this 3-peat history. This is the 3rd year in a row that the Falcons have brought home a state championship!
My girls...sporting their "U''s (for Mt. Ulla University/High School haha)
LM showing off her "U". Tripp and Grammy and Grampy had already left the game!
Lucy McLean with Dana
Big X...this kid totally reminds us of Michael Orr. He is precious and sweet as pie! Check out his bling...two state Championship rings and one more to add to that necklace!
LM with Davon. Davon works for my mom. She thought all of the football player's name was Davon for awhile. Way to go Falcons. This has certainly been an eventful and fun season!!!

9 months

And a really slack mama!
So, I am just now posting about this precious little man. Tripp turned 9 months old on the 20th. As with most every month, this has to be one of the most fun stages. He is laughing up a storm and has the most precious, one dimpled grin! He has learned to say "Bye Bye" and waves his little arm. He is also trying to snap his finger. Tripp has really started to interact and try to crawl all over Lucy McLean. They play like crazy together in the bath and on our bed. He likes to be in to EVERYTHING! He loves paper, hence the picture. He laughs so hard when he actually gets a piece of paper.
He has really started doing one of those crinkled-up-nose grins that is to die for! (Disregard the mugshot of his daddy)
He loves taking baths and brushing his teeth. He hates having his diaper changed and tries to flip over every time. He is very ticklish. He pretty much loves attention and loves being on his daddy's shoulders. He is a really happy boy, but insists that I hold him from the moment I get home from work, until he goes to bed. I know, I could break him of this, but how could you resist snuggling with this cutie patootie?! Ok, it can be annoying sometimes!
We are very blessed. Lucy McLean loves her "baby alive" brother (unless he is pulling her hair or playing with her baby dolls). He LOVES her and we love them both to pieces!

Our Weekend

Friday night was another night of football. Lucy McLean fell asleep during the 1st half of the game. It was freezing cold, so I was glad to have a free furnace laying on me for a few hours! I'll try to remember to add a picture of it soon!

Saturday morning, we started with another project. I am determined to get my parent's house wallpaper free! We have finished the kitchen (ok, I know I am slack..I will add those pictures soon too). On to the dining room (ie. playroom). Here is the before....

Saturday night was filled with loving on these cutie patootie nephews!
Tucker and Aunt Anna
Running around...what 2 year olds do best!

They are pretty obsessed (take note of LM's nappy hair in this pic)
The pretty much move each other (again, nappy hair)
We will remind them of this in years to come!
LM with Miss Brittany...watching tinkerbell! (again..crazy hair)
Woohoo for a barber daddy!
Finished product with Miss Brittany! It was a little shorter than we expected but it is PRECIOUS!!
Yay! Curls were hiding behind the craziness! And there was definitely some loving on this little man!!! Oh how I could eat him up!

Halloween 2010

We attempted a theme. Ryan and I had good intentions to join the kids (ok...I had good intentions, but we didn't pull through). They looked cute though! Tripp pretty much hated his costume, but we got a few pictures. I like Ryan's idea of recreating it and pretending it was actually Halloween, just for the sake of better pictures!
The best sibling picture we could get!
Aunt Sue and Uncle Hill's house!

Grampy and Grandma provided glow sticks! They were the hit of the night!

Happy Fall Y'all

We have been super busy this fall. Cheerleading is still going strong. The Falcons won their 40th straight game last night! My cheerleaders hosted a pink out and it was tons of fun. They let over 500 balloons go at half-time in honor and memory of those who have been effected by breast cancer. Lucy McLean and I didn't make it to the game. She has bronchitis AGAIN. We have been dairy free for over a month now trying to see if that would help her and Tripp's respiratory issues, but it doesn't seem to be helping yet! These pictures were taken last week in our attempt to get Tripp's 8 month pictures.
The whole gang...including LM's new scarecow that she adores (Thanks Aunt Glenda) The Big 8 month old!

Tripp turned 8 months old on Wednesday. He is getting so big and looking so much like a little man these days. He has 4 teeth and still not a lot of hair! He isn't sleeping great like his sister did, but is sweet as pie. He laughs real hard when you tickle him and loves to be around people.

7 months

Yeah, so getting this little booger's picture made with his "sign of the month" is getting harder and harder. He is in to EVERYTHING! My mom actually caught Tripp on top of a basket the other day. He had climbed from a box and on to the top of the basket. I think he watches his big sister for tricks way too much! He continues to be a lot of fun and a happy baby, regardless of what his Grampy says! He thinks Lucy McLean hung the moon and she can make him laugh like crazy. He loves to swing and EAT EAT AND EAT SOME MORE!!! He stands up on everything now and can walk around furniture. He has beautiful blue eyes with eyelashes that most women would pay for. He grins with his mouth wide open and kisses with his mouth open too! We are enjoying every second with this little man!

The Rowan County Fair

My oh my what you see at a fair. I am hoping that God puts blinders on children and that they don't see what we as adults see! Have you ever looked at that People of WalMart website? It is seriously like that X's about 3,000I don't want Lucy McLean to get any ideas. On another note...Lucy McLean had a blast at the fair this year. We ate yummy, greasy, overpriced (except from the WRHS FFA booth)food...rode on rides and saw the animals from all of our local farms. Tripp even enjoyed some lemonade! Ryan wins the AWESOME daddy award for squeezing his 6 ft long legs in to all of the kiddie rides. We had no melt downs... not even when we left. Lucy McLean simply said "Bye Bye Fair...Have a Good Day"!
