Latest baby news....

So I have hardly posted about being preggers!  A friend sent an email the other day checking in on me because I hadn't mentioned much about the pregnancy!  The second time around is sooo different!  I don't have time to sit around and think about it all day every day like I did with Will!  haha!

So I am 16 weeks and we will find out the gender on January 15th!  Can't wait!  Also, I started to feel he/she move this week which is always fun!  

I will keep you all posted...

Christmas at our house...

Leaving cookies and milk for Santa...shortly after this picture the milk was dumped in the floor.  Sorry Santa...
Checking out what Santa brought!

Already lining up his new cars...
The table is set...well except for silver ware.
Kiddie table...

Mimi, Abby and Beau.
Let the gift opening begin...
Playing a game of RumyCube (I think that is how you spell it!).  Larry (Toby's dad) got this going and it was so much fun to play!
Poor Dee Dee...
Playing so nice...
Abby helping Aunt Ann decorate her "belated" birthday cake!
Will helping Mimi play RumyCube...

So after our trip to Atlanta we got geared up for all of Michael's family coming to town.  Dee Dee, Toby and the kids came up from Shreveport for Christmas and were able to see Toby's family too because Toby is from up here...Anyway, we had a house full!  We sat 12 people around the dining room table along with a kids table, a high chair and a partridge in a pear tree!  It was a lot of fun filling up the house with people!  The kids played great together!  Will thinks Beau is hilarious and was so excited to play with him!  Seriously what am I going to do with all the toys???  It is RIDICULOUS!  

Christmas in Atlanta

Waiting in line at the Pink Pig with Grandi and Aunt Cari (or Carwee as Will says).

How cute is baby Claire??!!
Checking out the Pink Pig!
Ready to ride...
Ready for church with Grandad!
Rockin' the knee socks and saddle it!
Taking off in my F-150. You can see he is flooring it as he is leaning back from taking off! He just rode it around in mom and dad's basement since it was so cold outside!
Opening MORE presents...

I took Will home to Atlanta for a few days to see my parents. Michael had to work and couldn't go :(. We had so much fun and my parents spoiled him ROTTEN with christmas presents which included a Ford F-150. He is SO hilarious when he drives it. Most of the time he throws his hands in the air like he is riding a roller coaster!

On the way to Atlanta I stopped by to see Casey and Henley in Chattanooga. They just moved into a new house (which is gorgeous!). We had fun catching up for a few hours and ate lunch at this place that I am still salivating over...

I met my parents, aunt, uncle, cousin, and her baby Claire at Lenox on the way in town too! We wanted to let the kids ride the Pink Pig (an Atlanta tradition) and see Santa (which I only have printed pictures of - I will have to scan them because it is really funny). I love Lenox mall at Christmas...

Gingerbread House...

Will and I decorated a gingerbread house.  He really got into it...especially eating the candy!!!

Sunday after church we went to Brunch with Santa.  Will is okay with Santa as long as he doesn't have to sit in his lap.  This Santa was so great - he told me not to try to make him sit in his lap.  He got down on the floor with him and was showing him ornaments and talking about trains and cars and Will warmed up to him (without realizing it!).  We got a couple of cute pictures of him.

There was another couple with their kids in the room with Santa.  They had two cute little boys so I was like, "oh how old are they?"  He tells me then says, "How old is she?"  I said, "She's a he and he's it the outfit?  The hair?"  

Be honest - does he look like a girl in this outfit?  I thought it was relatively "boyish" smocked thing...oh well.  I think he is cute and very manly :)

Giveaway Time...a little late again!

I can' t believe how quickly November went Christmas is on it's way!  This giveaway is for a $50 Gift Certificate!

There is a slight hitch to this giveaway...whoever wins I just ask that you wait to use the certificate until after Christmas.  I have SO many orders to do right now!!!  I hope this is okay with the winner!  If you were wanting to get a gift (for Christmas) with the gift certificate I can do a website gift certificate to the person you want to give it to.  You could even do $25 and $25 for two gifts.  Hope that makes sense!  Okay just leave a comment to enter!  Leave your email if I don't know you...I will draw Wednesday!

Also about Christmas orders (since you asked, Becky:) I am going to continue to take orders until the 16th for guaranteed delivery before Christmas.  You can still order after the 16th, but I can't guarantee that it will be there by Christmas.  You can order gift certificates up until the 20th for Christmas delivery or up until the 25th if you just want the gift certificate emailed to the person.

Thanksgiving 2008

Didn't mean for this to be the first picture...oh well! Here is our den tree (without the tree topper!) - fa, la, la, la, la
My little turkey...
Will has not learned chivalry yet...obviously. Poor Mary Paul!
He probably deserves that look...

Making apple pie with Grandi...
Playing in the leaves...
Football with Grandad and Daddy...

We had a great thanksgiving in Atlanta this year at my parent's house. I took lots of pictures of Will, but not many of the rest of the family! I need to hire a photographer to go with us everywhere because I am SO bad about not taking enough pictures...Anyway, we had a really good time. It was so relaxing - help with Will, shopping, Michael played golf and football, watched football, slept in late, ate lots of get the idea! Hope all of you had a great holiday too!

Will is 2!

Party in Nashville - Aunt Ann made the cutest train cake!
Party in Atlanta - pumpkin theme...finally he has gotten over his pumpkin onto Christmas trees!

He has actually been 2 since the 8th - I just have not been good with keeping up with the blog here lately!  Will partied the whole month of October!  We didn't do a big party at our house this year - we'll make everyone travel next year!  So Will ended up having a party in Atlanta with my family and one in Nashville with Michael's family.  I am only posting a couple of pictures...I am too tired to go through them all - isn't that terrible!

Will went for his 2 year check up the other day.  He is 34lbs (95%) and 35"(75% I think)...He only had to get one shot thank goodness and he really likes his new doctor!

He is so much fun these days and I feel like he is getting easier (knock on wood...I hear 3 is the toughie).  He says funny stuff all the time such as....the other day I was picking him up from MDO and there was a little boy screaming and crying because he got his fingers smashed in the door.  Will was standing there with his pacy and bear (he had just gotten up from his nap) just staring at the kid.  When he saw me he took his pacy out and said "He scweamin, dat ugwee.  He scweamin wike a whittle gwirl..."I tried not to laugh and told him the little boy was hurt.  We sometimes say when he screams, " You sound like a little girl....screaming is ugly."  

Also Michael fixed a couple of places on the wall around the stairs where the movers bumped it with furniture.  Anyway, he found some touch up paint in the attic and proceeded to paint all the spots on the wall and it was the wrong color :)  That of course drives me crazy and I probably drove Michael saying "that's the wrong color...."  So now every time Will passes that place on the stairs he says, "dat's the wong collwa..."  Thanks for the reminder son...

We are looking forward to the holidays!  I am ready to get the Christmas decorations much to do!  Hopefully I will be better about the blog!

#30 Zach and Kim

#37 The Lamberts

You may notice the numbers are off again because I had someone leave two comments so I threw out one number and used to choose two numbers between 1 - 53. Just wanted to clarify! So girls just email me through my website to let me know what you would like to have!

Also, Christmas is around the corner so if you plan on ordering anything for Christmas gifts just know that I will probably stop taking orders Dec. 15th so that I have time to get everything made and shipped out before Christmas. Depending on the number of orders I may have to shut it down a little early. I am going to do some sort of free gift or coupon too if you spend a certain amount...I will update that on the blog and website later.

Congrats to the winners!

Trick or Treat

Listening to the live music with daddy.
Checking out the suckers and the life size peanut M&M...
I think he thought he was in heaven...
Trick or Treat!
I want candy!
The only pic we could get with the helmet on - still wouldn't wear the shoulder pads!

We took Will to a cute little downtown trick or treating tonight.  There is a cute old town near us that puts on this festival every year and a friend of mine suggested we go!  I am so glad she did - it was really fun!  of course Will is still a bit young to really get into trick or treating, but he did say trick or treat for candy a few times!  He was a UT football player for Halloween (daddy's choice).  He has a great uniform with a helmet and shoulder pads that of course he wouldn't wear.  I also tried to do some black tape under his eyes, but he kept saying "take it off..." so I did.  At least he would wear the pants and jersey.  I thought he looked cute anyway!  Happy Halloween everyone!

Snow flurries and pumpkin carving....

The other day it was so cold it started snowing or flurrying (is that a word?).  It was coming down pretty good at one point and will kept saying "snowman, snowman."  Later that afternoon Michael got home a little early which was nice and he and Will carved 3 pumpkins!!!  They were so cute together - Will loved it!  Especially when it was time to light them!  Enjoy the pics...
