Christmas 2009!

We had a fantastic Christmas. It was great to see Buck get the whole holiday. HE was very excited for Santa and helped bake cookies. Theodore was excited to eat the leftover cookies he found on Santa's plate the next morning. It was a busy season but we had fun going to parties, seeing family, making crafts and celebrating Jesus's birthday. Buck LOVED singing happy birthday to baby Jesus, he had made a baby Jesus at preschool, I have a pic below and it is so sweet! I hope everyone else had a great and wonderful holiday. Happy New Year!

Happy Birthday High T!


Wow - One Already! This was the fastest year ever but Theodore is officially one! We are planning on having a "real" party in January for the big guy but wanted to do a little party for him to celebrate. Having a birthday a week before Christmas is hard, but now he gets 2 parties - go high T! We had a great time and invited our friend Leila over with her parents for Ravioli and cupcakes! It was a blast - Theodore is really growing up, he is ready for that sippy cup but don't dare take away his Pacifier! He loves his Rocket from Aunt Melissa, Aunt Rachel and Grandpa Ralph!

Why I smile on the Tough Days

It was a regular busy day of work and spending time with the boys, I went to go check my mail and came back to find Buck just like this. I love it! There is also a pic of Hi T, equal airtime on the blog :) T is getting so big, he will be 1 in just a week, not sure where all of that time went.

A busy November

I can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving! It has been a busy month for us with school and work. I also took a weekend trip to Charlotte to visit my sister and attend her "surprise" baby shower. It was great to see her, my mom and a few cousins!

Halloween Hijinx

We had a great end of October! We were very busy with work and school but made a lot of time for fun. Theodore had his 10 month check up and is doing great, he is a big boy and is growing perfectly. Buck is doing great at Preschool and really got into Halloween this year. He loved talking about the Pumpkin Patch and got a kick out of carving pumpkins with his dad making "Halloween Jacks" as he calls them. Buck also has a new favorite cartoon, Clifford the big red Dog!

Halloween was a hit at our house. Buck was a cowboy and Theodore was a great T-Rex. We got to trick or treat at our neighbor Leila's and then we headed to Collierville to trick or treat with our friend Andrew (Superman for the night), it was awesome to see him get trick or treating and he remembered to say thank you!

Here are some fall pics and halloween fun!

October Fun!



We have been having so much fun this October. Buck and Theodore have enjoyed the few dry days we have had. Buck had a Fall Break from Preschool and I decided to put Theo in PDO for an extra Friday so Buck and I could have a day together, we went to the Movies to see Cloudy with a chance of meatballs- it was Buck's first Movie Theater experience and he did great, we had to go right at the last 15 minutes of the movie, but we lasted a lot longer than I had guessed. He enjoyed a WHOLE movie theater bag of M&M's :) He had a perfect day.

Theodore has been cruising more and more but no solo steps yet, he is also babbling like crazy and can say Buck, Dada and Mama, and Ba ba - which is code for bottle, which he wants all the time. We have been having alot of fun, here are some pics of our adventures

Buck made his own Movie Theater Stadium seating, found him like this- we had nothing to do with the set up. We laughed and laughed!

Pumpkin Patch

This weekend we went to the Pumpkin Patch at Buck's School. It was a very simple pumpkin patch with loads of pumpkins and we must have picked the perfect fall day to go. Buck had a blast running around the pumpkins and we got some GREAT pictures of the boys. We told Buck he could have any Pumpkin he wanted but all he wanted to do was pick one out for his little Bro - he is the sweetest. Buck settled on a petite prince of a pumpkin for Hi T and we picked Buck a nice BIG pumpkin! We put them in the front flower bed and Buck loves to pet his pumpkin when we get home everyday. Here are the pics!

Ryan took this great pic! Just wish he could be in it too!

Theodore contemplating if he can carry this pumpkin to the car

Theodore Time! (and some more preschool pics)

Theodore is really changing and getting his personality. I call him quite trouble. He is just as busy as Buck was at 9 months but he goes about everything very quietly and almost innocently. He is a climber and is starting to be quite the dare devil. He loves Buck and they play really well together, Theodore knows when to back away and do his own thing, especially when Buck does not share.


Climbing the chair, and yes he has almost made it into that pack and play


Double trouble

He is always so happy!

Being Super silly


He KNOWS he is really super cute!

Buck is doing really well in Preschool and I am very proud of him. WE are excited for family night in a few weeks where we get to tour his classroom and then go to the bookfair!


Still raining, Buck just wants OUTSIDE!

Buck in the Birthday Crown, we brought cookies so his class could celebrate

Fireman Buck, I know this was HUGE for him
