Merry Christmas!!!!!

This was the picture we used for our Christmas card this year.
Isn't is PRECIOUS?!?!?!?!?!
And here are a few others.....
We hope everyone has a beautiful Christmas!
Love, Carson, Laurice & Weston!

The Pink Pig

For some reason I had really been wanting to take Weston to ride The Pink Pig at Lenox Mall. Its something that alot of people make a yearly tradition out of and I thought he would really enjoy it. So we picked up Chris and Kelly and headed to Lenox. Wes liked the train ride but when Priscilla (The Pig) started talking it was really loud and kinda freaked him out a little. He laid his head on me and squeezed my finger the whole time! It was funny! It was dark and fast so Carson couldn't get a good picture of us so here's what we have! -see the blur below! ha!

After we rode the Pig were all starving, Weston wasn't feeling good so he was ill and pitching a fit when we sat down to eat. When Carson was handing me our fries they slipped out of both our hands and landed all over the ground, and then we had to stand in line again forever while Wes was still ticked! We all sat chewing our food almost in silence. Poor Chris and Kelly had to sit in our tension!! It was just one of those moments, but I'm glad they love us even when we have them! After we left Wes fell asleep in the car and we stopped and got coffee and rode down Paces Ferry so we could see all the mansions with their Christmas decorations. We all talked and laughed the entire way home. Minus the beginning of dinner it ended up being a good fun night!

Missing the Park!

One of Weston's favorite things to do is PLAY OUTSIDE!!! Our town has only had one park for a long time and even though it does the trick, it's not very nice. But this fall good ol Villa Rica got a brand new park and its SO cool! We have loved going there! These pictures are from a few weeks ago when it was like 80 degrees outside, but the weather has finally turned wintery and its too cold to go now. I dont want to wish the whole winter away but I do wish the cold weather away so we can go play again!
See ya in the spring park!

A Mr. Bulldog Homecoming

A few weekends ago we went to see the boys at their annual football homecoming. They usually do the normal walk through at the football field and announce every player and cheerleader but this year they decided to change it up and have a dance for all the kids. I think the kids liked that idea waaaaaay better! We showed up and the kids were all running around having a blast and dancing it up! ha!
This year Cole and Brock won the Mr. Bulldog award for their teams.
They were so excited and we were so happy for them. They got a HUGE trophy and a football signed by their team. It was sweet.
Even though Cody and Levi didn't get a trophy this time we were still proud of them for being happy for their brothers!
Brock (such a stud muffin!)
While we were there Maddie was tearing it up on the dance floor. The child loves to shake it!! Its so funny to watch! Weston wanted to dance with her so off they went!
Here they are dancing away! SOOO cute!
Mom and Levi! He is laughing cause he was a little upset about not getting Mr. Bulldog so I told him that even though he didn't get it he was still a hottie! He loved that! Cheese!!!! I didn't get a picture of Cody cause he was running away from a girl that kept wanting to get a picture made with with him so he spent his time trying to escape from her! HAHA!! It was hilarious!! But we had a good time seeing them at their homecoming!! We love them all so much!

Halloween 2010

It may be a little late but I wanted to share about our fun Halloween events this year!
We did some sweet pumpkin carving with Amanda Gina, Myles, Ben and Dan!
We really wanted Myles and Weston to love getting all messy and into the pumpkin carving but they didnt really care much about it....oh well, maybe next year!
These were our finished products.
They looked so cool and fun! Then on the Saturday before Halloween our town was having a little event for kids to come to where they could go on hayrides and go trick-or-treating to all the little places in town. The kids had lots of fun running around and getting candy and all kinds of goodies.
Weston and Annabelle's Nana and Paw Paw were in charge of the hayrides so they got to get on with their daddies first! They loved it!
My good friend Jane has so many costumes from when the boys were little so I had a big variety to pick from! This year Weston wore the Indian costume Cody wore when he was a baby.
The Indian and Ballerina
(look at their awesome shoes!!)
Impossible to get a good picture of both of them but they're still so cute!
Little Myles the Cowboy enjoying his sucker!
And here's my little wild Indian running around! This is what most pictures are like of him these days: Blurry!! ha!!
October 31st is my brothers birthday so we usually have chili and desserts and then go trick or treating in his neighborhood, but he had to work this year so we broke tradition.
Instead we went to the Trunk-or-Treat at Plasant Grove church just down the road from our house. It was one of the smaller ones so we thought that would be better to take the kiddo's to. Everyone was so sweet and the kids had lots of fun running around and got lots of good candy (for us to eat!) Then we went back to our house and had a last minute bon-fire and lots of fun friends drop by. We all had a great time and a great Halloween!! Hope everyone else did too!

Rainy Day & Mall Fun

Last night we wanted to get out of the house and take Weston somewhere to play. It has been raining for the past 2 days so we haven't had the chance to play outside much and we couldn't go to the park. We ate a quick dinner of leftovers and headed to the mall. Our mall has the cutest little play place with all kinds of little cars and slides and just fun stuff for kids to monkey around on. We had so much fun running around and playing with Weston and just getting out of the house. We will definitely be doing that more often, especially because its FREE! Plus its going to be getting dark sooner and getting COLD!
Precious boy!
He was worn out after a long day of hanging out with uncle Steven and playing!

To the BEACH!!!

This past weekend we took a mini vacation to Florida! We stayed at the Phillips beautiful beach bungalow. It was so beautiful and Van and Terri are hands down the BEST hosts you will ever have. We were treated and served and the whole time we were there! We had the best time and are so thankful they let us come see them! It was also Weston's first time to ever go to the beach so it was a special trip all around.
Here we are on the way down: driving, cheesing, and snoozing! Weston was an angel in the car and didn't cry one time the whole 6 hour drive!! He was amazed when I broke out the portable DVD player so that might have had a little something to do with it!
We got there around 12:30 on Thursday night and stayed up and visited for a while. And checked out the new house. It is so awesome (and I'm regretting not taking more pictures of it)!
Friday morning we got up and ate breakfast and got ready to head to the beach which is just across the street. I was so excited for Weston to see it! As soon as we walked up to it he was smiling, jabbering and waving to the water. Here are some pictures of his first ocean waves! He was so pumped!
He spent his time crawling EVERYWHERE, playing with his toys, and eating sand covered snacks. He loved the beach so much!
Building sand stuff with da-da!
We spend most of the day there and just hung around the house and grilled hot dogs that night. It was a great day!
He played SO hard the whole time we were there and got worn-slap-out!
So he took lots of good naps!
This is his "CHEESE" face!
We went driving around on Saturday and spent some time walking around Seaside.
Its one of my favorite places.
Van, Terri & Weston
We had the best time!! Cant wait to do it again!
