Watching You Tube with Daddy

I've got to hand it to Jeff--I would have never thought to turn on YouTube as toddler entertainment! Of course, they are watching puppies, babies laughing, and the Hot Dog Dance :) He and Preston were having a BALL tonight..I just wish I had gotten a better picture. Have a great week!

I think we actually got them! I hosted a surprise baby shower for Nancy Hunt and Becky Smith last night....and they were shocked :) Nancy and Becky are both having their third child, and are each not finding out the sex of the baby, so our girls group thought it would be fun to sprinkle them with a few new things for Baby #3. The food was great, the babies (and mommies-to-be!) got both practical and fun things, and the time with friends was the best of all...
Also, Preston has had a rough week, but is getting better. I took him to a new Dr. yesterday, Dr. Ensminger who had previously practiced in Winnfield, and he finally diagnosed Preston with tonsilitis--and I was so happy to have a SOLUTION to the fussy baby I had on my hands. He is already doing better-just still a little tired from nights of fitfull sleep.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Just a preview.....

I don't want to "spoil" the arrival of Christmas cards, and actually used a different shot than this that Sherry Owens took for us, but I just HAD to post this precious snapshot she cut out for me today :) The black-eye is photo-shopped and for that I am SO grateful.
On that note, I am sending vibes of low stress to all you ladies out there that are about to get REALLY busy with Christmas festivities. Honestly, it makes me get stressed just thinking of all that is to be done...but I LOVE this time of year. My prayer is that I can keep the focus on the real reason for the season!!
Hope you are having a good week--brrrrr, it's chilly!

Elmo Slippers

You all know that Preston is OBSESSED with Elmo....and now he is obsessed with these Elmo slippers! He does not like to wear his socks around the house (we do not wear our outside shoes inside for the most part--unless we have company!) so his little toesies were getting cold. The solution.....Elmo!! He brings the slippers to us and says, "UUUGGGHHH!" Translation: PUT THESE ON MY FEET!!! He is still getting the hang of them, and has done a couple of "spread eagle" type falls, but I am just happy he will keep something on his feet :)
Happy Weekend! We are not going to the Tech/LSU game....and really hope we are not going to miss a historic WIN for the Bulldogs. A girl can dream, right?

Beautiful Fall Day...

I just had to document some of the shots I got yesterday when Preston was playing outside. We have been enjoying some absolutely gorgeous weather, and it has been really nice to get out and enjoy :) Nana and Pops stayed overnight Friday after the Boise State game (that ALMOST was an upset!) and then Pops and Daddy golfed Saturday morning while Mommy, Nana, and Preston went to Lowe's to buy pansies. Thanks to Nana for watching Preston so I could get my yard looking presentable! Looks like this pretty weather could be coming so a halt tommorow, but I sure hope you were able to enjoy it-have a great week!
