Family Pictures 2012

This is a fun preview of my adorable kiddos posing for family pictures. I searched for Raelynn's outfit forever. It is so stinkin cute...sparkle pick boots with a sparkle pink skirt. She called it her princess dress. More pictures soon to come!

We are back!

It has been a year and I thought this morning how I used to love to do our family blog and I need to start on it again.
Brody recently started a half-day Kinder program at a charter school. Next year he will be doing full day Kinder at the public school. He would have been one of the youngest and I just didn't want to do that to him. He's doing great though and is still getting used to waking up early.
Raelynn is funny, but very demanding. She requires attention constantly, loves animals and wants to be in the spotlight.

October 2011

This month was a fun one, but it made us all sad that it had such hot weather. It never cooled down. :(
Raelynn turned the big 1 on halloween!

She couldn't get enough of the gifts given to her!

Brody never can decide what to be for Halloween, so he made a costume change a few times:

Annual Santa Claus cookie making

Santa Claus cookies are super fun for the grandkids to make and so my parents have been making it a tradition for the last few years:

Me and Cassidy chowing down:


All of the fun Christmas decorating plus some cousin play time at the end:

Mom loves the nap time

I love it when the baby is snug, warm, and SLEEPING! A lady who gets adjusted at Jeff's office made this cute fluffy mat. I put it by the computer and Raelynn fell fast asleep...our computer puts out a constant hum and heat. That did the trick! She is now 6 weeks and as far as I know super healthy. She is a great nurser and I am learning that eating the wrong foods can make for a super fussy baby. My list of foods I researched "not to eat" is about a mile long. Not fun, but when I stick to it she is a happier baby I have found. We love having a girl and I am starting to get out of the "just had a baby" haze.

Work Christmas party and some Holiday baking

Last night we had the Preferred Chiropractic work Christmas party at Rockin R Ranch.

I love cowboy food and as you can tell, so does Jeff:

(He looks GREAT as a cowboy)
In the fun little cowboy singing show they ask anyone who's Birthday it is to go up on stage...poor Heather has a loud husband and brother who thinks it is funny to point to her (isn't that like a third grade thing to do?!):

The best part of the night...the white elephant gift exchange. The limit was only 20 dollars and somehow Jeff and I ended up with a gift card to Texas Road House that has 60 dollars on it!
We have been attempting some Holiday baking. Okay, this really means that I add an egg to a mix and put it in the oven!
Brody has been in Science class for Gilbert Parks and Rec and on Thursday they are having a little Christmas party where the kids are to bring a treat. Brody picked out his own cookie mix at the store, cracked the egg, mixed the dough, and even rolled it out and decorated the cookies:

The kid HAD to sample every step he was doing. We had to wash hands very often!
