A failed photo session.....

Because I am absolutely IN LOVE with this little blue courduroy outfit I got at Hock Your Smock, we attempted a photo session this morning before church. As you can tell, it is getting harder and harder to get a good shot. The picture I am holding him he is making one of his "silly faces." Bless his little heart, he has had bronchitis and has not been in the best of spirits. Oh well, maybe next time will turn out......

"Just Because" Flowers

Well, not really JUST because flowers, more like I am leaving this afternoon and will see you after church Sunday because I am going to the duck camp flowers, but I will enjoy them all the same!! Jeff really is so thoughtful and is always doing little thigs for me :)
Note to boogeymen that might stumble upon this blog: My house will be alarmed if I am inside and my husband has a wide array of personal protection equipment (i.e. guns) Thanks for not coming to get me!

A quiet January......

I apologize to anyone who actually checks this blog regularly, but I have just not had many pictures to share lately! We actually have been pretty busy, but not with anything THAT terribly interesting :) Preston is REALLY starting to get fun, and his little personality is developing daily. He is such a CLOWN! He loves to make silly faces, and will be happy to mirror back a silly face you make to him. My New Year's resolution was no more baby food--and I have kept it for the most part. Preston's diet consists of waffles, bananas, GRAPES, fish sticks, chicken nuggets, popcorn shrimp, turkey, cheese, cookies, and SOMETIMES I can get some veggies in him. Not all the time. The only person he eats veggies for is his NANA-she got him to eat a BROCCOLI FLORET! I would not believe it had I not witnessed it!! He is getting more verbal by the day as well. I didn't voice this to anyone but my family, but there was a time that I was a little concerned about Preston's communication skills........but those concerns have been laid to rest! Let's just say I have gotten to experience my first "fits" with Preston and he can communicate JUST FINE :)
Jeff and I are really getting pumped about our snow skiing trip in a few weeks...but are going to be gone a whole week and will miss Preston TERRIBLY!
There have been some pretty sad things going on in Ruston these last weeks, and I just wanted to pause and give an update--and give GOD all the GLORY for the blessings in our life! All our best to each of you :)

Watching Football with Daddy

Aside from my 5k this morning in the rain, we have been pretty lazy today! I was the fastest 31-40 year-old crazy girl out there in the elements this morning-thought my parents would want to know :) Anyway, I snapped this pic while during the start of the SAINTS game-not looking so great right now. Hope they will turn it around! Notice the box of Irish Spring in Prston's hand--he has been carrying it around all day. I don't understand but pick my battles....

Finally-a PRETTY day!

Well, I know I do not have to tell those of you with small children that it has been a LONG few days all cooped up inside :) So let me tell you, when Preston and I got home from MDO today....I let him run WILD in the yard!! He rode is Kawasaki from Grandfather and Gran-Gran (his favorite feature is the radio, ha!), he picked up some leaves and sticks (ever a favorite pastime), and of course chased Max the kitty ALL over the yard. We hope you are having a Happy New Year!
