Light Night

11/28/09Annual Light Night! Abs had so much fun hanging out in Marilyn's shop and watching the parade. She thought it was so great picking up candy off the road and putting it in a sack! And this year she even waited in line to sit on Santa's lap! I have a short video of Abby sitting on his lap, but I won't post it because for the whole 20 seconds she is just screaming!


Abby was such a hoot during Thanksgiving dinner! Not only did she mooch off everyone's plate, for some silly reason she thought she needed to lean down to her plate to eat her yummy turkey!
I am so thankful for another happy and healthy year with family and friends! It is such a joy to watch Abby grow and become a person of her own!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

New Moon!


When the Twilight craze hit I could not understand what was so amazing about VAMPIRES?! Seriously, vampires?! I swore to myself that I would not read the books/watch the movie. How dumb..VAMPIRES?! I would never be a Wannabe Mrs. Edward Cullen/Jacob Black. Umm gag! Until, one night Brent's sister, Winter, went to Wal-Mart with us and was struck with shock when I told her I had not read/seen Twilight (at this point, all the books had been published and Twilight was all ready on DVD). Winter quickly snagged the Twilight DVD and demand I watch it. So after Brent and I put Abby down for the night we plopped in the DVD and...BAM! Just like that I was a twi-hard, Edward loving, OBSESSED, Twilight fan. Within the next two weeks I had read the entire Saga and began my New Moon count down movie release plus reading the complete Saga another 2 times while waiting! So here I am with my friend Brooke, waiting for the midnight showing of New Moon!
Red Lobster + Twilight showing + NEW MOON = Perfect and much needed girls night out!
A-MAZ-ING!!! June 30th I come!

Boys & Quads

Abby and Mason are just about a month and a half apart and just too cute together! At first they weren't to sure about each other, but the quickly warmed up and before we knew it they were giving each other rides on Abby's Barbie quad! Mason preferred to drive and Abby loved being the passenger! Can't wait for Mason to visit again!

Pumpkin Carving!


This was an...experience! Abby wasn't to sure about the whole gooey mess but had fun screaming and stretching about it! Rylee on the other had was way into it! It was so funny watching them and their reactions to the pumpkin and goo!


9/30/09 & 10/2/09

Melissa was a candidate for Homecoming queen! We really enjoyed watching the skits at the Variety Show and of course Mel was so beautiful!That following Friday was the Homecoming Parade and football game!

This is where a post about out trip to the KC Zoo is supposed to go but my pictures from the Zoo are on my desktop which is unplugged and put away. So for now here is another video for our Zoo day!


Too sweet for words!

Table Rock Lake

9/6/09-Labor Day Weekend

The Race family invited us to their lake house for Labor Day Weekend and it was a blast!
This was the first time on a boat for Abby and she loved it! She knew what boats were from her Signing Time DVD and every time we would mention boats she would get so excited and sign boat non-stop! She loved getting in the water, more just sitting on the tube and watching everyone swim. She loved throwing ice in the water and watching them disappear and she enjoyed napping and the motion of the boat! Can't wait to go back!
Thanks Krissy, Ryan, JoAnn and Steve!
