Christmas 2008

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful time with John Luke this year. He seemed to be much more interested and excited about all his presents!
And we enjoyed visiting with family! At this age, the company of your family is more enjoyable than what you have under the tree!
I know there are duplicates on the slideshow, but I just copied them's much quicker! I'm excited to see everyone else's sweet pictures!

My silly little man "posing" for me for the first time in his life! {In a much better outfit than the last!!!}

Photo Challenge

Hey LeeAnne! I have just now found the "photo challenge"! So here is my fourth picture in my fourth album: My lovely sister Amy posing as usual...

This Christmas I have been dragging behind on everything! I love to do Christmas cards, and I thought I had gotten a head start on them this year, but it turned out that I was stressing trying to get just the right card, with just the right picture, with just the right pose {What was I thinking? We're working with John Luke here!} But anyway, we got them done {Thanks to Lyndsay!!!!} Here are a few I took trying to figure something out!!!!!!!!!!!!

He looks like a little baby in this one...

Well, we finally have a Christmas tree! It's pretty sad that we are just now putting up the tree with only 10 days left before Christmas!!! I told you I was running behind on everything!!
Our "tree story" usually sounds the same every year. And this year was no exception. After John chopped and chopped and mistreated the poor tree, he finally got it rigged enough to go in the tree stand. {This drama happens every year...John gets sooooo mad at the Christmas tree because it is never the right size or there is always some adjustments that have to be made and it seems that those adjustments are never simple! So he is usually out in the yard for several hours slinging the tree around and mumbling or yelling about how the stupid tree is not going to fit into the stupid tree stand {everything is stupid} and that it is not going to work and we just need to go buy an artificial tree and be DONE with it!!!!!!! I usually just stand at the window and watch, laughing the entire time! He finally will come to the door and say calmly, "Will this work?" And I say, "Yes, let's just get it in here before you have a heartattack!" He is much more calm and easy-going when it comes to the decorating part. So he and I decorated it Sunday night. As I said, finally {thank the Lord}, here is our tree...

And here is a goofy little boy that lives around here making his mama crazy trying to get a picture in front of the Christmas tree!

Merry Christmas Y'all!!!

Big Brother!

This sweet little munchkin is going to be a BIG BROTHER!

We have another precious blessing on the way! John and I went for an ultrasound earlier this week and everything looks and sounds perfect! The baby is due July 12th. I still can't get my scanner working, therefore it's a very fuzzy picture. Sorry!

We are looking forward to meeting this little one and loving he or she like crazy! I think John Luke will be an awesome big brother!! We shall see!!! Have a great night!

Update! Finally!!!

It's been a long time since I blogged! I have been a slacker---BIG time! I guess when we all got sick and John went to Canada, I got out of my routine and have not gotten back into the swing of things! But maybe everything will get back to normal soon.

I have enjoyed the Christmas blogs with the festive music, although I can't say I am quite ready for Christmas myself. I love the season, I just can't get into the "spirit" just yet! I changed my blog background so maybe that will be some motivation! I have got absolutely no Christmas shopping done. I thought I did one day, but instead of waiting for Christmas, I have been wearing my gifts and I let John Luke wear his!!! I am terrible about that!

These are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks...

Praise the Lord this man is home!!! I missed him soooooo much and so did his little man! Since his return this is what John Luke does EVERY time he starts to go anywhere. Even if it's just to the other room!!

We made a quick trip to Troy one day and stopped by to see the aunties. Unfortunately Aunt Amy was in class, but we got to see Aunt Kimberly for a short visit.

I thought this was too funny! A sign Kimberly made and hung on her wall to remind her to "not get fat"!!!!!!! If only it were that easy!!!

This has been our favorite toy lately...yes the "bubble car" inside because "it's just too darn cold outside for women and children" as John says. Especially after having a virus, and then an ear infection, and then a fever for several days, and now a cough and stuffy nose!!! We have been locked up inside for years it seems like! {Notice how he has his leg kicked over the side...he got that straight from his granny and nan!}

I walked in the room one day and found this. I thought it was so cute!

If we do go outside, this is our attire.

And finally, I have been meaning to put this on here. John Luke's first kiss!

One day earlier this week, John called and left a message on the answering machine. John Luke has learned how to play the message and plays it over and over and over. He stands over the phone and says, "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" Then he'll pick up the phone and say "Daddy"? I think he is as ready for his daddy to come home as his daddy is to come home! {And me too!}

Milk...It Does a Body Good

And this baby eating and drinking does his mama good! He has been sick for almost a week now! Thank the Lord he is feeling better!

Since it was warmer today, we went for a ride on the Ranger, and believe me this little boy was READY to go! He has been stuck inside for much too long! {I know he may be a little over-dressed but I wasn't taking any chances!}
