4 weeks to go

Ok so now we are down to just 4 weeks to go. It will be here before we know it. I looked like a big walking candy cane on Christmas with my white and red stripped shirt but that's ok. I feel like the last 4 weeks seem to take the longest but maybe with 2 other kids to chase around then maybe it will be fast. Keep me in your prayers we still have a bit to do to prepare for our new bundle of joy.

More Christmas pictures

Ok so here are a few more pictures. Even Bella got some presents and so her sister helped open her gifts.

Whew Christmas went by fast

Our Christmas celebrating started on Friday and lasted until Christmas night. The kids got so much that they don't know what to play with first. Friday we got Christmas gifts from Aunt Amy and Uncle John in the mail that is the first round that day. That afternoon we had Christmas with their cousins Lauren and Monna. There was no gift opening again until Monday afternoon we had Christmas with David's mom and her family and the kids were just beside themselves to open their gifts. They rushed everyone to eat so we could get to the good stuff. Then that night we had Christmas with Gran Gran and Banky which as before they rushed us to eat to get to the good stuff. Christmas morning the Kids or should I say Bailee woke us up at 7:15 and we had to wake Bryson up at 7:30 and they went in to the living room to see what Santa had left. That was a lot of fun. Bryson actually thought Santa was going to be in the living room waiting on us. Then we had a nice breakfast with Gran Gran and Banky. Ok so then we got ready to go to my moms house for Christmas with her family we had a ten ton of food and I totally over ate. Then off to Greenbrier at 5:00 to be with David's grandparents. Whew lots of fun huh? Well it was and I am just thankful that we have so much family to celebrate with. I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoy the pictures.

6 weeks and counting

Ok so we only have 6 weeks before we welcome our new baby girl into this world and my nesting mode is kicking in. HELP I want to clean some of the silliest things and everytime I start cleaning I start having BH contractions. Why is it that we get this OCD cleaning mode towards the end of the pregnancy when that is the worst time because there is no energy what so ever. So if anyone has any suggestions like a cheap house cleaner that will come in and clean my nitty gritty areas let me know :). Have a great weekend.

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

The kids are so excited about Christmas and they want to wear their Christmas shirts everyday. I have to come up with a new story for Bryson just to get his santa shirt in the wash. He even actually slept in it last night. But the kids just looked so cute yesterday so I decided to take their picture by the tree and I wanted to share with you all.

Oh the things kids can do

This is sort of an older thing that happened back in the summer but I was going through pictures and found the evidence of them filling the sink full of water and bubbles. They thought it was so funny. The put toilet paper in the drain and then left the water running and just kept pumping the soap in. I was in the other room doing something and I knew they were suppose to be washing their hands but after so long and they didn's come out of the bathroom I knew something was up. I couldn's believe it when I walked in they just laughed.

Leaves, Leaves and More Leaves

Ok so finally the big tree in the front yard finally lost all of its leaves and the kids were so excited to go out and rake them and jump into them. They had a lot of fun. Last year Bailee wouldnt even jump in them but this year she loved it. Bryson wasn't so sure at first but then he started having fun.

Puke, Puke and more Puke times 2

Ok so the old saying what goes around comes around right? Well last night Bailee had us up throwing up. But I have to say she is older and can make it to the toilet so it was a little easier. So all I can say is im not ready for the actual winter sick season because we have had a fair share already. I just pray me and David dont get it because we cant afford for him to miss work and then I cant afford it because im pregnant. Sorry once again no pics im sure your glad.

Puke, Puke and more Puke

OK so those of you who have kids will know that it is no fun to wake up at midnight with a child who has thrown up all over themselves and the bed. And to top it all off being pregnant I couldn't hardly handle the smell nice I know for my graphic description. So I decide this is the first time ever that I can not handle throw up with my kids. As I go to the bedroom to wake up my hubby who just will not wake up I have to shake him to get up and then he's like what??? Like a grumpy bear who has been awaken out of hibernation. I said no I'm not in labor but your son has thrown up and I cant do it. So he stumbles out of bed and I try to help as much as possible so I say OK me and Bryson will sleep on the futon, bad idea for a pregnant woman to sleep on the futon. I cover the pillows with towels to protect them for the next puke time. But does he make the towels? Of course not he throws up all over the couch where we have to sleep, there is no where else to sleep because we are not going to sleep in the bed it will be too crowded. So end of story we cover the whole couch with towels and keep the puke cup in hands reach for the next episode. Oh and the kicker of all David waits to tell me that oh yeah when he was eating that chicken nugget it smelt awful!!!! OK so why didn't he inform me of this at the time he was eating we could have avoided the whole throw up scene. Oh well he threw up 4 times and that was it. UGH glad that night is over. :) Sorry I have no pictures I know you all would just love that huh? :)

We love our dad.

This is a cute picture of the kids just enjoying their daddy being off from work. This was taken Sunday night and they knew Daddy had to go to work the next day and we loved having the long stretch of him being off for the Thanksgiving Holiday. He is usually so busy with work that the kids just really enjoyed him being off. You can tell the kids love their daddy huh?

Got milk?

OK so Bryson had tried out some cool whip and it looked as though he had a milk mustache. The picture doesnt show it too well but he still has a cute expression on his face. Maybe he will be the next milk mustache model. :)

Our new Mother in Law house

Ok so since my son already thinks his Gran Gran already lives with us, David decided to get a mother in law house. Its nice and spacious with a overhead loft for all your storage needs. Its just short on plumbing and electricity. :) Just kidding David got him a home away from home to escape to not fair huh? Since we are turning the garage into a bedroom for Bailee to make room for Annabella he needed a new place for all his tools and big boy toys. So now if he is not working his job or working on Bailee's new room he is out there where he cant hear me get frustrated with the kids and ignore how messy the house is. :) When are us moms going to get a place like this where the husbands stay in with the kids and we go out to our storage building to gain back out sanity? Im taking a stand, I need my own space out there too. :)

My little worker

Bryson is so funny in his little 2 year old humor sometimes. The other night he came walking in the living room with his little play hard hat on and his play tools so he could "fix stuff" so he said. I just had to get his picture because the hat on backwards was just too funny. Bailee of course had to get in on the action as well.

Fall fun

Saturday the kids went out to play in the leaves in our strange warm weather that we are having. I kept trying to get a picture of Bailee throwing the leaves in the air but it didnt work too well. Oh well they still had fun.

Brotherly sisterly love

So this is a picture of how sweet my kids can be sometimes. They were just so sweet but sometimes boy they can really be at each others throat. Being an only child its hard for me because sometimes Bryson just bothers Bailee to be bothering her and that drives me crazy the most. Im trying to teach Bailee that boys just like to bother us girls and that the more she cries and yells at him the more he will bother her. But for my sake that has not yet sunk in to her little head. So the moments that they are sweet to each other are priceless.

Here is my most recent cake

Ok so I think this is my favorite baby cake that I have done. I have done some cute one's but I think this one moved to the top. If you ever need a cake just let me know.

This is what happens when you dont get a nap

Wednesday I was trying to get ready for church and Bailee comes into the bathroom and say's "mommy Bryson's passed out" So my reply is ok is he breathing?? " Yeah mommy he's just passed out in the floor". I knew he hadn't had a nap because he refused that day. So when I got out of the shower this is what I found.

A Day at the beach

Bailee and Bryson were playing while I tried to clean Bailee's room which is always a wreck and they told me they were going to the beach. Now the picture doesn't show all that my son has on but he has on his lightning McQueen PJ's, a Santa sock, a Spongebob sock, Bailee's black shoes and Bailee's pink ballcap. I thought it was funny the way he was dressed. Oh how kids play.

Bailee cant be left out

Oh of course Bailee had a new outfit and since we were taking pictures of Bryson we had to take a picture of Bailee but she was acting so silly.

Like Father like Son

OK so at Children's Place I found the most adorable dress jacket for Bryson. We wanted to get a picture of him and daddy all dressed for church but bryson just didnt want to smile that day. He looked so cute in such a little dress jacket.

The Lord takes care of us.

On Thursday Night Oct. 18th at 11:30 we had a nasty little storm with strong winds and rain come through. I woke up because you know me and storms I had to make sure everything was ok and at that time I saw what I thought was just a tree limb falling and it wasnt until 10 minutes later that I realized it was a whole tree. So I woke David up and he went out to check out the damage. Our dog Cookie has a cable tied to that tree and her dog house was not to be seen so we were worried that she was not ok. But she is ok and the Lord took care of us because the way it fell was the best way to fall because it could have fallen on the house which would have been on Bryson's room and ours so we know that the Lord's hands was in that. I just thought I would share with you all our little midnight experience. Once again Thank you Lord for your protection.

Bryson loves working with his daddy. David is working on turning our garage into a room and bathroom for Bailee for when Annabella comes. So its so cute to see them working together. Bryson has even climb all the way into the attic to try and help how scarry is that.

Bryson's 2nd Birthday

Here is a picture of Bryson's Birthday cake. He had a Car's birthday party we celebrated on Spetember 29th. He had a lot of fun and ate lots of cake and candy.
