Potty Time!!!!

Yes! Yes! Yes! We have finally gotten it down! If you've ever been through potty training I know that you will understand my abundant amount of excitement on this subject. For the past 2 weeks we have really been trying hard to get Darby potty-trained, and I think we've done. She can go all day without an accident, can even take a nap in her big girl panties without an accident, and will do #1 AND #2 in the BIG POTTY!!!!!! #1 and #2! The only part that we have left to tackle is making through the night. We are now only wearing a "nite-nite diaper" as Darby calls. Twice this week she has awakened dry and went straight to sit on her little potty...maybe there's hope. Matt and I are so proud, but said to see how quickly she is growing up. She now tells us, "I can't wear that diaper, I don't wear diapers. Bodie need diapers." The funny side to this story is the "big girl panties" that she wears... THEY ARE BRIEFS! She will only wear Thomas the Train boy briefs, but hey, if it works I don't care what she wears! Kudos to Darby for using the big potty!!!! My baby is growing too, fast.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

A few pictures from the Polar Express. We rode on the real Thomas the Tank Engine!!

Decorating the tree. I love the one of her helping Daddy put up the tree, nothing but a little butt!!!

These are some of our Christmas pictures of the four of us. Thanks to my neighbor for her wonderful help! It's kind of hard to do it all yourself with 2 small ones!

It's December and Christmas events are already well under way...I am getting behind on my posting. Since Thanksgiving we have decorated the house, had our family Christmas pictures made, and went to the Polar Express. It may take me some time but I will post some pictures of our adventures! We are really serious about potty training right now so I am consumed by the "toddler world."

Happy Thanksgiving

We spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Kentucky with Matt's family this year. Here are some pictures that I captured while there. I took a ton just playing with my camera settings to learn how to take really good shots! I am still working on those skills.
There was even a wishbone to break! Way to go Darby!
My boys!
My nephew Tripp...he's such a happy boy!
These remind me of a kids clothing ad.

I love this picture of Darby.
My photo collage of the kids.

I've been tagged!!

Well, I guess this is a little game that is going around, and I think it's a great one! You are suppose to pick the 4th picture from the 4th album saved on your computer. So, here is mine. It was about 4 years ago at the races in Talladega. It's just a picture I snapped of the racecars passing by our seats in the stands. Long before we had kids, Matt and I would make the most of a Talladega weekend!!!! I remember many nights of fun at the track...wait maybe I don't really REMEMBER that much, but it was fun!!!! Go #8!!!!!!

So now it's my turn to tag 4 people... Bree Reid, Gretchen Hinkle, Mandy Davis, and Jennifer Cotton! Have fun, and I can't wait to see all the pictures!

This is how it all got started.

The End! These are Matt's dad's glasses and this is where they ended up after the party!
Ok, so here are the pictures that everyone has been waiting on.

From Matt's Surprise 30th Birthday Party that I threw him at our house last Saturday (Nov. 15, 2008).

We had an ABSOLUTE BLAST! Everyone there did, as far as I know, even my prego friend Brit! The pictures are what results in a much needed night without any kids, lots of beverages, and a party are all combined! I am just thankful that I pulled this off. It took lots of planning and preparation, thanks to everyone for your help! Sorry, I lied to you so many times Matt, but I had something up my sleeve!!!!!

Happy 30th Birthday Matt!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to Matt(daddy)!
Happy birthday to you!!!!

Today is Matt's 30th birthday! Wow, I can't believe how fast we are getting old! We didn't get to see him this morning because I had to be at work before he had ever gotten off, but we did leave him a surprise on the kitchen table. Me, Darby, and Bodie got him a new Alabama shirt to wear and an Alabama cup like he has been wanting. He was surprised and called to thank us when he got home and found it. I love to SURPRISE people when they least expect it, it's so much fun!!!! We are having dinner at his mom's so I will post some pic's later! Happy Birthday Matt, I love you so much!
