Justin at 11 Months!!!

Little J is such a sweetheart! How hard it is to believe he’s nearing a year old. He’s been such a joy in our lives. Content and patient describes him to a “T” these days. So much so that I thought he’d never crawl. Finally, at 11 months, he did! He’s working on pulling up but will take his time on just about everything he wants to do. Very patient child (so far).

Ryder turned ONE!

My little nephew, Ryder, turned a year old last month. My how time has flown! Brian went hunting for the last hunting weekend of the year while I headed south to Dothan. Spent the weekend with my middle sister, Mary and our children. We had a great time and the kids were surprisingly great.

I helped get things ready for Ryder’s party. Mary worked her tail off on that party! If only someone could plan, decorate and make food for my kids’ birthday parties, I’d be all set. Mary did a great job and the party was really nice. Some pics of the birthday boy:

The Alphabet

Not sure when it actually happened but Troy knows his alphabet. Loves to say alphabet letters, too. He calls the alphabet the “ABCDEFG’s”.


After Christmas, everyone takes their trees down and puts them in the yard for pickup and disposal. One day, while outside, Troy said, “Look momma, there’s a X”. I looked in the direction where he was pointing and sure enough there was an “X” on the bottom of the tree. We had to go check it out.DSC_7913

And he likes to find the “W’s” on the road. There are two in one spot. He is very proud of himself when he can find two of anything. Two is his favorite number by far.
