What We Have Been Up To......

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone's Christmas was great! We enjoyed watching Christmas through the eyes of Emma, she really got into it! I will post Christmas pictures later. In this post you will see some other highlights from the past month.

Sam is 6 months!! He's my cutie!

Here is a picture of Emma and Sam after they got their haircut. Yep, Sam had his first haircut at 6 months. You will see why below......

Looking Good

"Yea, My First Haircut!!"

This next picture will explain why we decided to get his haircut! :)

Poor Sam has to play dress-up too!

My mom, (Mimi) knits hats for Emma and Sam all of the time. Emma loves to play dress-up in her hats. Lately we even find her after she has gone to bed sleeping in one of her hats. :) She's funny like that. She says the hat keeps her hair down. Hmmm??

Poor Sam has a clogged tear duct. In February he will to have a minor surgery to open it up. We will be excited to not have to clean his eye every morning once the surgery is done. Here is a picture of Sam in the morning before I have cleaned his eye.

Big Boy.....Loves his oatmeal and all orange vegetables, but he doesn't like the green ones....especially peas!!

Hope everyone had a great year in 2009, I know I did, I had the sweetest little boy join our family. Hope 2010 brings many wonderful adventures and blessings to all my friends and family!

Halloween Time!

Well I know Halloween has come and gone along with now Thanksgiving, but I still wanted to share Halloween pictures with you.

Sam was Chewbaka from Star Wars and his costume was a hit!

Our friend's son was Yoda and he was scared of Chewbaca!! :)

Emma was a "Ballerina Witch!" She loved Halloween! She was so thrilled to get so much candy.

Sweet Home Alabama!!

I know I am past due on my weekly commitment to "blog" but October has kept us super busy. Tonight I will share with you all about our LONG road trip to Alabama to visit my dad and stepmom. We piled in the Camry around 7:50 am and didn't arrive at my dad's until 8:30 that night. It was a long day. Emma gets the Star Traveler Award, followed by Travis, then myself and in last place....Sam!! :) He really did quite well, however was done around 10 hours of being in the car seat. Below are pictures of our fun, yet short visit with Nana and Colonel.

YEA...Arkansas! Only Two more states to go!!
Nana took the girls to "Emma's Tea-Room"

Emma and Colonel (my dad)
Play time with Nana
Breakfast at the Children's Museum where we saw Sid the Science Kid!
Experiment time!

Since Colonel and Daddy were watching football, Emma had to watch Charlie Brown's Great Big Pumpkin in the study...she thought it was great!!

Thanks for having us Nana and Colonel! We had fun!! Next time, we might fly! :)

More Miles.....Dallas Road Trip!

Travis and I headed out last Saturday morning without the kids to Dallas for the big A&M Arkansas game. We have good friends that live in Dallas and met up with them. We tail-gated in the rain and then made our way to the amazing Cowboy stadium. Thank goodness the stadium was awesome, because the game...not so much! :)

Wow, Look at that big screen TV!!

This weekend we are staying put in Bartlesville getting ready for our next trip. On Wednesday we will be driving the 10 hour trip to Alabama to visit my dad and step-mom. Emma is excited to go see her Nana and Colonel (that is what she calls my dad) :)

Sam had his 4 month check-up last week and is nice and healthy! He weighs 16lbs and 11 ounces and is 27 and 1/4 inches long. For some reason Travis and I have a kid who is off the charts for his height!! :)

Bartlesville Weekend!

Yes, it is rare but we stayed in Bartlesville all weekend and didn't even leave the house until Sunday evening to grab dinner out. We had a good productive weekend working in our "rainforest" landscaped yard! :) Emma also was excited to earn her prize for 5 nights of going to bed with a smile! Below you will see Emma's bedtime steps that I had to come up with to help with bedtime battles! Each night she follows her steps and goes to bed with a "smile" and no tears she gets a sticker on her chart. When she gets 5 stickers she gets a prize. The prize she decided on was Lightning McQueen slippers or as she says..."Lightning The Queen" :)

Sam turned 4 months today! He is an awesome baby! He is always so happy and will share a smile with you almost anytime you look at him.

Enjoy the pictures! You will also see what happens when Sam's sister decides he needs his hair fixed!! :)

Emma insists on everyone wearing headbands!

She is so proud of her slippers!!

Here are Emma's bedtime steps!!
Next weekend Travis and I are on the road without kids!! We are heading to Dallas for the A&M game. Emma and Sam will be getting spoiled by Grammy and Pop!

Girls Weekend

This past weekend was my girls trip to Dallas. On Friday night we went to see Britney Spears.....that was quite the production. On Saturday we pampered ourselves with manicures and pedicures at this really fun nail place. As you can see by the pictures we were really pampered. :)

Don't we look cute!

Saturday night was dinner and late night chatting!! I had a great time seeing old friends, but I sure did miss my babies!! Oh and Travis too!

Look who was home waiting for me...
