Mr. Letters is here!

Welcome to our home Mr. Letters!!


Payton has been keeping a close eye on you today!! She is very worried that you decided to spend your first day in a box on the shelf!!! What she doesn't know is that Mr. Letters likes his box, so he might just spend every day in the box somewhere in the house.

ONLY TIME WILL TELL.......

Working Wednesday!

This little girl

is keeping me on my toes today


with having so much energy!!


Oooooo Weeee this girl is full of it today! I asked her if I could borrow some of her energy and she said "No my ergy (energy) yours in the closet (as she was pointing to the pantry). I get you a cookie mom!!

I guess she thinks cookies gives energy!! She is definitely wearing me out today! And to top it all off Macey Jo decided she wanted to start crawling today!! Thank goodness she is not very good at it yet!!

Happy Thanksgiving! 2011

We got to spend Thanksgiving this year in South Carolina with Gi Gi and Pop Pop. We left late Tuesday night and made it there about mid day on Wednesday! We had to end up stopping due to the crabbiness of our almost 9 month old!! We booked an hotel room in Crossville, TN around 0130 Wednesday morning!! Needless to say I just don't have good riders!! Oh well we made there and that is all that matters!

Richard and I were able to go on a little date night to see Breaking Dawn. I'm sure Richard would have rather seen something else, but he knows how long I have been waiting for this movie to come out. After the movie we went back to Gi Gi and Pop Pop's house and put the kiddos to bed!

The next morning we had a small breakfast and watched and gave Gi Gi some moral support for cooking Thanksgiving dinner!! Dinner was awesome and everyone was so stuffed! Even Macey got to dine with us on some Sweet Potato's. She loved every bit of all the yummy goodness that was in them!! Thank you Gi Gi, the food was sooo good!!!!!


Then around 9:00 pm that madness began!! Gi Gi was the lucky one to hit up Black Friday with me!! We made it to ToysRUs around 9 and then made it to Target around midnight! I got some good deals and I am happy to say the girls Christmas is DONEZO!!!!

We had so much fun in S.C. over Thanksgiving break!! But it all had to end because I had to go to work! Thank you so much Gi Gi and Pop Pop for letting us mess up your house and eat our you wonderful food!! Also a big thanks to Gi Gi for conquering Black Friday with me!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Birthday Bailey!

This past weekend we got to spend some wonderful time with our nieces!! Bailey and Emery are so sweet and growing up so fast! Bailey wanted to have her birthday at the deer camp in Rison so all her cousins and family could be there! So like Bailey... she always wants to be with lots of people!! It was so good to see everyone and for everyone to meet Macey Jo!!
(Sorry they are so blurry, they are from my phone)!

These silly girls!! They have so much fun together when we visit!! Emery and Payton are 4 months apart so they really enjoy each others company!! Bailey is like their little momma it's so cute!!

Macey Jo had a lot of firsts this weekend. She met a lot of her cousins for the first time. She attended her first bonfire at the deer camp! She roasted wienees for the first time and helped momma make S'mores!! It was so much fun visiting and hanging out by the fire!!

There they are!! All 4 of the girls!! Macey, Bailey, Emery, and Payton!! Love you girls so much! Can't believe this time next year Macey will be running around acting crazy with them!

Also while we were there we visited Poppa Davis. He got to meet Macey Jo for the first time also! I know, Iknow that is so bad! We should have introduced them a while ago, but it gets hard traveling with 2 kids and also having 2 work schedules to work around!! We made it down there and thats all that matters!

Payton loved seeing Poppa Davis. She kept telling Poppa that Pawpaw Davis was in an airplane! I think she told him that a 100 hundred times! Richard's dad Brian a.k.a Pawpaw Davis is a pilot and its so funny because Payton will hear an airplane and say thats Pawpaw Davis!

This was about the only nap these two girls got all weekend! They were so worn out from running and playing and eating all weekend!! Poor Emery I guess she didn't know she could leant he other way and be a lot more comfortable!

All 3 of the young girls taking a sweet, short nap! Even Macey Jo didn't have a decent nap all weekend!! So you know she was mighty cranky every time she was put down!


Payton had so much fun visiting with her cousins! We can't wait to se them again around Christmas time!! They always have so much fun together. Too bad we don't live closer because they would be a mess all the time!!!

Happy Birthday Bailey!!

Our family funday!

I haven't had a Sunday off in about 5 months! The way our work schedules interfere with each other I have to work at least one day on the weekend! :( Sad I know but so worth it in the end for my kids! Well I am on vacation and today we decided to have a family funday! We woke up early Sunday morning to the wrong time, it was really 0700 instead of 0800, thank you daylight savings time! So we decided to go eat breakfast at Blue Plate Cafe, which was very very yummy!!

Then we got dressed and made it to the 1115 service at Hope!! It was a great sermon and although we had to sit in the Cry Room, I think we managed to hear every word! Since I work on Sundays I think we are going to give the Saturday night service a go and see how we like that! After Church we came home and ate dinner and let Macey have like a 1.5 hour nap!

Then we loaded up and drove to the Zoo. We hadn't planned on going to the zoo we were just going to go walk by the river, but then at a spur of the moment turned into the zoo! Boy I am so glad we did! It was beautiful!! All the animals were out and moving like crazy! Can you believe we actually saw the hippos, yes the hippos move out of the water! I was in complete shock! I don't think I have ever seen them move! They are starting to set up for the Zoo lights so that was very neat to see!

Can you believe that she actually said can you take a picture of me!!

When we finally made it home, we relaxed in our PJ's and watched Sprout! Payton knows almost every word to the Goodnight Show! Even the commercials, which is a little sad, but that is what she loves to do before she goes to bed!



I am so thankful for my family and the fun times we get to spend together! Thanks Ki Ki for joining is today!! We loved having you there!!!

You love to play with your big sister! I just sit back and watch you two interact with each other! I love watching that! I use to imagine what you and Payton would be like together and now I am living it!

I love you!

What are you up to..
-You wear 6-12 months and 12 months clothes
-You are in a size 3 diaper
-You eat Oatmeal for breakfast, a fruit for lunch, and a vegatable for dinner and snacks in between
-you still love eating your 6 oz. bottles
-you are still are not crawling, but i think it will be soon!
-You love playing in the floor with your sister
-You will not keep a hat on or a bow in your hair
