Preston's Milestones

Time sure does fly by when you are watching your baby grow. This weekend was a huge one for little P. He has finally figured out how to pull him self up on things, he first did this at Bonnie's house on Saturday and everyone got to see it for the first time with Russ and I. Now I think last night was a bigger accomplishment. Little P has been doing his own type of crawl for a while now, well last night he finally crawled on his hands and knees - he was trying to get to the garbage can a little faster :)
So with all these new accomplishment's Russ gets to baby proof the house, which means we have to go buy new gates for the stairs, the hallway and kitchen.

Christmas at Bonnie's House

We had an early Christmas at Bonnie's house today. The kids had a ton of fun opening presents, the best expression was Izaiah when he opened his Lego set (thanks Hannah). In one of the pics you will see Preston pulling himself up on the table, yup he is starting that phase now I am so excited that I get to see him do new things everyday.
As you can tell the kids had fun going outside to play in the snow, but boy was it cold. They went out to play right as a new storm was heading in which made it even colder out there for them, needless to say I think they got to play in the snow for maybe 10-15mins before we had to hit the road before it got to bad.
We had a great time and it was fun to see everyone.

Another Snowday

So I thought yesterday was bad, boy was I wrong. Last night it started to snow again at about 5ish or so, well I woke up this morning to 8-10inch of snow - yes you heard me right(for you followers in NC I haven't seen this much snow in a really long time)and it hasn't stopped snowing at all today. Right now Madie and Izaiah are out playing in it some more, I don't think they understand that it's not going anywhere for a while. Oh well I guess I will have to really rely on my wonderful husband Russ to take me places if I want to go anywhere, as I don't drive in it. We are suppose to get more snow next week, oh how that will be fun driving over the pass to visit Russ's parents for Christmas if we go I will post about our fun drive there.

Right now here are some pictures (that I just took) from today, enjoy!

Preston's First Cookie

I finally gave in and gave P a teething biscuit, boy did he love it.

Madie and Preston

Miss. Madie loves to be the little mommy of Preston, and she does a really good job at it. On this particular day I was busy getting dinner ready for the family and Preston was tired so she decided that she was big enough to rock him to sleep and she did. Way to go Madie.

Captain Conner

Conner decided that he wanted to have a little fun at the end of dinner one night - what a character.

It's finally winter!!!

Last week
It finally feels like winter here, it snowed last night! For the last couple of weeks the weather has been crazy just ask the roses in the front yard :)

While we were at a Christmas party last night it was snowing, but not too much that I couldn't drive there (for any of you that know me I hate the snow) but on the way home Russ got the pleasure to drive us home. The kids were in awe that it was snowing so we had a snow fight in the parking lot, and of course Conner didn't listen and fell into the grass and got soaked - poor little guy was crying the whole way home.
Today should be very interesting as the kids just want to go and play outside, and let me tell you it's freezing out there. I don't remember ever wanting to go outside and play when it was this cold, but what ever make's them happy and tired I'm fine with.

Football Fun

This past Saturday Russ played the final game of football for his reach team, so this kids and I decide to go and watch him play.

The kids were only interested for all of 5seconds, so I watched him play and let the kids run around and play at the park.

Oh, if you are wondering who won, Russ's team did, Way to go guys!

Playing until I fell a Sleep

So I left little P out in the living room to play on the floor while I ran around the house this afternoon. I heard him talking to himself and playing with Izaiah's book bag, and then all of a sudden I didn't hear him - so of course I was a little concerned well to my amazement he put him self to sleep playing on the floor.

I guess he was ready for his afternoon nap, lucky little fellow (I could use one right about now).
