2 Random Facts

Kittrell LOVES apple juice. And Ashlyn has to show Meme how to work her iPad. Seriously.

My baby decided she was ready to go hunting today. For the very first time. She is SO excited!! While Daniel, Ashlyn, Kittrell, and I were lunching over a huge spread of Mexican food earlier, Daniel asked Ashlyn if she wanted to go hunting with him this afternoon. She quickly turned him down with the reason that guns were way too loud. I said,"You know Ashlyn, you can always stick your fingers in your ears before Daniel shoots his gun." Lightbulb. After lunch we stopped by Ace Hardware and picked her up some camo. $70 camo so I told her there was no backing out after that purchase. Back to the house to change then they were off to Teoc. Hope she's having fun!! I'm sure she is though- she got to take her iPod. (I do feel a little guilty though... Ashlyn HATES loud noises, and Daniel's gun is the LOUDEST gun I've ever heard. Seriously. I jump every time. Hope this doesn't scar her for life...)

Merry Christmas... From us Catholics!!

Ok, so this link has nothing to do with Christmas. But I still love it. Made me laugh. I feel entitled to share. Especially since I live among the crazy 'non Catholics' down here in the hills. Normal 'non Catholics' don't tell me that my children and I are going to hell because we don't get 'saved'. But the crazy 'non Catholics'?? Lord- I'm gonna need a whole lot more patience!!! I can't wait to see their jaws drop when they realize they have to share eternity with all us Catholics. Gonna be great!! (they are especially gonna be shocked when they see me walking my dog in Heaven...)  Enjoy!

My Little Model

Christmas Break

Kittrell's is so excited that Ashlyn got home from school early today. I bet he's going to be even more excited to have her home for 2 weeks! Anything to keep from having to look at just me all day long...

Ashlyn's teaching him how to play toon town today. Great. Now I'll have 2 kids addicted to the computer.

He went straight for the balls on the tree skirt.

Time for a Baby Gate?

I'm afraid if I leave the room I'll come back and Kittrell will have eaten a Christmas present. Or a tree limb. Or an ornament. Well you get the point. Yesterday I walked into the kitchen to get something to drink which took all of about 2 seconds to do and when I got back Kittrell was chewing on one of my magazines. Which was across the room from where he was when I left!

And so it begins.

Our Day Off

It's been one of those days. The ones where you have the day off and so does your husband but instead of enjoying it you drag your 5 month old all around Meridian shopping and when the chick working the check out counter at Toys are Us tells you your total you want to literally throw up? Yeah- one of those days. And to top it off I've got the crud and have been taking any and all drugs I can get my hands on because there is no way I'm missing Laura Merrill's wedding tomorrow! We're on our way to Gwood and a good wife would stay awake and talk to her husband. But my head weighs a ton and I can't keep my eyes open.... No wait- I'm up. Husband just put my Sublime CD in. We're all good.

Oh wait- no. He started singing. I'm going back to sleep.

Anywho, here's a pic of Kittrell passed out in the store towards the end of shopping day. Happy Weekend!!

Let's talk about hangovers. What's your hangover remedy? Mine is grease. French fries in particular, but anything will do. Weight watchers will not be proud of me right now. It's been a great week with Jeannie visiting, and last night we had a VERY big time. So big, in fact, that I need some grease! Kittrell and I dropped Jeannie off with her dad in Brandon and scooted on over to Applebee's. I had cheese sticks on my mind. And then that turned into this.. Maybe I just won't weigh myself Friday...

It's science project time! Ashlyn is making the planet Mercury. If she gets an F it's all Jeannie's fault...

Meme and her babies..

Christmas Parade!!

Kittrell did great at his first Christmas parade. He somehow managed to fall asleep as Valley's band was passing by, though. Someone please explain that one to me. After the parade? Fireworks, cookout, and family time at Fraiser and Mauri's. Good times!
