After weighing in at 15 pounds for his 4 month checkup, Dr. Barret told me I could start Jack on fruits and vegetables. (He's been eating rice cereal since he was 3 months old.) Today I decided to try bananas for the first time and he LOVED them! I think he's going to be a very good eater - yea!! Check out this happy little angel after he downed his first fruit... :-)

Mallory made her first gingerbread house yesterday. Actually, she made a church. She stood a candycorn on the top of the house and created a steeple for her gingerbread church. She loved decorating it with m&m's, marshmallows, and candy corn, but to my surprise she didn't want to eat it. Why? It was too messy! LOL!

Remarks from Mallory

One of these days I'm going to have to write down all the precious things Mallory says! She's really into tv commercials right now and thinks she needs everything that's advertised! Tonight she saw a commercial for Pepcid. She rubbed her tummy and said, "Mommy, you need some of that! I don't want you to get blurry in the night." Yes, blurry was the word she used! LOL! I just hate that blurry feeling, don't you?! :-)

Thanksgiving Treat

Well, I said I wasn't sure how often I'd be doing this and here it is 5 weeks after my last post!

Each year on the Friday following Thanksgiving, my mom & dad take us all to Dallas for a weekend of FUN! We girls always hit the sales, the guys play golf, we go to a Stars game, and do more shopping. This year, Daddy surprised us with individual rooms at The Gaylord Texan! Oh my! That place is gorgeous!!!! And to top it all off, we got to go to the ICE show - a 9 degree extravaganza of ice sculptures, ice slides, and amazing creations made from ice. To me this was Disney World in Texas! We had a blast!!!! Here are a few pics from the weekend.

Dorothy & Daddy

Halloween has always been double fun for my family. It's a great night of trick-or-treating and it's Daddy's birthday! This year we all went to eat at The Butcher Shop and then returned home for red-velvet cake and presents. Mallory dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. I thought she looked precious. Grant was a little pumpkin - sooooo adorable. And Jack & Micah dressed in little halloween onesies. Here are a few pictures from the evening....

Cousins in Canton

Today we went to Canton! Mama, Amy, Kristin, and I took the kids and had a blast! It was Jack's 2nd trip, but Micah's first. At 13 weeks old and 11 weeks old, the boys did great!!! Of course it's Mallory's favorite place to go! She loves the little frappuccino samples more than anything. From the moment we get back home she starts asking again, "Mommy, when can we go to CanTON (emphasis on the "ton") again?" She is definitely one of the girls....she LOVES to shop!! Here's a picture of what the boys did....
They couldn't have been any better. Jack is 3 months old today.... gracious where is the time going??

Welcome to my blog!

Well, after much consideration and persuading from friends, I have finally decided to create a blog! I enjoy browsing through my friends blogs... I guess it's a pretty fun way to keep up with everyone. I plan to use this blog to share the blessings God has given me and give Him the glory for all He does. I am truly BLESSED!

My blessings include a wonderful family.... husband, Brad, and two precious children, Mallory & Jack. And the best parents, Donnie & Charlotte, who raised me to know Christ and follow Him in all things... my mother being my best friend. Plus, my siblings, Chad, Josh, & Kristin... who could ask for a more fabulous bunch?!?! We have a blast together!!! But, I can't forget their wonderful spouses... Tennille, Amy, & Jamy... and my sweet little nephews Grant & Micah. My family is so close and so perfect. Hanging out with them is the joy of my life. What fun we have!

Thank you, God, for the gift of family. I am blessed beyond measure!
