This is the Christmas Card that I created using Photoshop. See, I wanted to be able to have Kirstyn (just turned 4) sign all of our Christmas cards but because we mail so many I knew that she would never sit and sign away and for that matter I didn't think I could get David to sign that many either. So, I had Kirstyn write her name and I scanned it in along with James' footprint and mine and David's signatures. I was very excited with how it turned out!
Anyway, Merry Christmas!

Kirstyn had a great 4th Birthday Party and was soooooo excited that Scooby made a guest appearace! This year I made her birthday cake and I made a jello Mystery Machine. I was pretty proud of how cute it all turned out. At the party the kids tie-dyed t-shirts (retro huh!) and had a great time eating and hanging out with Scooby!

I am very proud of how cute Bryton's announcement turned out. I designed it in Photoshop Elements. I am learning to do new things like this and really enjoying the results. Oh and isn't my little nephew cute!!!This is my younger sister Neida with her husband Paul and the proud (and very sleepy) big brother Logan!

When I rounded the corner coming back into the living room this morning...this is what I found. Kirstyn had asked to hold James for a minute so I took that opportunity to go to the restroom alone. Kirstyn was very proud to have been able to put him to sleep all by herself.

Here is a snapshot of our playgroup Halloween Party. At least all of the big kids were in one place at one time. James was sound asleep so I didn't even put his costume on him. I decided to be a little nostalgic and post a picture from playgroup Halloween party 05. This also reminds me that I need someone to send me a few pictures from Halloween 06. Kirstyn got to go to the party but I had to miss it since I was working then due to my in-law's car wreck.

Today I started working on the blog with the intention of getting caught up on my pictures, but of course that did not happen! Seems like even when James is sound asleep and I go upstairs to blog, the moment my butt makes contact with the office chair all of his internal alarms sound and he screams. I don't really get this phenomenon because this is a baby that is mostly happy until I sit down in the office with a plan and then....well, lets just say, he is very convincing. UGH! So maybe one day I will get caught up on my pictures! Maybe I will make another attempt on Thursday while Kirstyn is at school.
We had a great time at HooRah Days in De Queen. Kirstyn and Logan enjoyed getting to spend some time together. Dee Dee and Granny Rene went with David and I and the kids. What a great day! Oh and check out my sling that I am carrying James in....best baby invention ever!

This is one of the many funny faces James makes while he is eating. We have started feeding him rice cereal during dinner and he makes some of the funniest faces and one of the largest messes I have ever seen! He loves to shove his hand in his mouth right after I give him a bite and then sometimes reminds us that he knows how to make a motorboat sound! Ugh. Rice cereal for EVERYONE!
Okay, my newest hobby! I am learning to use the embroidery feature on my sewing machine and having a blast! These are the burp cloths that I made for Neida's new baby boy that will be here around Thanksgiving. I think they turned out really great. I have many more projects in the works that I will try to remember to show off. Maybe one day I will get good enough at this to start selling something on ebay! Send me your thoughts!!!
We went to the Fort Worth Zoo with Playgroup. James had a blast. Notice the great stroller that we have. Kirstyn rides standing up and James rides watching Kirstyn! She enjoyed seeing all of the animals and James had a blast watching her! Too cute!!! Oh and I got a great workout pushing this stroller with both kids loaded on it all over the zoo.
Okay, well I have decided to blame the fact that I only blog about once per month on the fact that I have a 1G memory card for my camera. I can take hundreds of pictures without having to download them to the computer...thus, it is hard to post pictures that are still living on my camera! Anyway, I am going to post our happenings for the month of Sept and part of Oct all at once! Gotta love it!

I took Kirstyn to get her first "real" haircut. We went to a place called Sweet and Sassy. Perfect for Kirstyn. As you can see, everything there was PINK! We also left there covered in glitter. They did a great job on her hair and she really had a great time. I enjoyed getting to watch her feel like a princess!

MiMi bought Kirstyn this new rain gauge for our back yard. I just had to take a picture of her with it because I have never seen one like this. Now when Granny Rene and Papaw call us and ask about the amounts of rain we are getting in Texas....we will have an accurate answer! Kirstyn and David have this mounted on our back fence and because of the floating red ring inside, we can read the rain level from our back door! Kirstyn can't wait for it to rain so she can go outside and dump it! Too funny...
We had a great time on Vacation this year! We went back to the beach and had a very relaxing week. Kirstyn just loves the waves and the sand and it looks like James is going to love it too. He would get instantly happy when we took him out onto the warm balcony with the wind blowing! We are already counting down to next year...
