Merry Christmas....almost!

Merry Christmas to you! It is my very favorite time of year and am even more excited this year because I think Parker is going to love it too. Here are a few pictures from around the house and from picking out our tree. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2011!!

Happy Halloween!

I'm a little late in posting Halloween pictures, but I'm trying to get caught up before Christmas :)

Happy October!

Happy October! Here are a few pictures from around the house and our trip to the Pumpkin Patch. We went to Honeysuckle Hill Farm in Springfield. It was fun but Parker was really still too small to do much. However, she did pick out her own pumpking.

At the house....and this is about as good of a picture as I can get now, b/c she wants to walk toward the camera now.
Again coming full speed ahead to touch the camera :)

How much weight can a baby bed hold???

This is how I found Stewart and Parker the other night when I was trying to fix never know what happens when your not looking around here!!!

Needless to say, she thought this was the greatest thing that Daddy would get in her bed with her :)

Destin with the Bronson's

We went to Destin with Stewart's Dad and Pam. We had a great time and wish we could have stayed longer. We went to the beach and Parker had a great time, we rented a boat and went out on the ocean and swam a little bit and fished a little bit. We had great food and a great visit. Emily and Joe got there on our last night and the picture below is the only one of all of us. (This is the picture you get when the valet guy takes it :)

All of us
Stewart's big fish ;)

Ready for the beach!

1st day of Mother's Day Out

Parker started Mother's Day out two days a week at the end of August. I was a little sad the first couple of days but it has been great now that I'm am used to it. She is still adjusting to the sleeping at school part of it. However, she loves playing and is learning a ton. Here are a few pictures I took before we left.

Trying to smile but knowing the flash is coming and is going to make her blink. This is how most of our pictures look now days :)

Or just plain shutting her eyes in anticipation of the flast :O

Beach Part 1

We got to go to the beach with some friends earlier in July without Parker. This was my first trip away from her and we went for 3 nights. It was great. We went to Dalphin Island, AL and pretty much had the beach to ourselves. They also left their boys at home so it was a very relaxing weekend. Although it was a little crazy becuase they (I guess BP) is putting up these massive sand dunes. Dalphin Island is a barrier island to Mobile Bay where there is a lot of sealife they are trying to protect. So they were dregging (sp?) the bay side of the island and bringing it to the ocean side to protect the bay. So they were very busy with the dump trucks and the walkers on the beach looking for oil while we were hanging out at the beach and on the deck watching them :)

Below are some of the crazy pictures we took while there:

Robin relaxing and reading at the beach The sand road from the deck of the house--it was CRAZY how tall it was!
The dump truck at eye level to the deck that was like I think16 feet up from the actual beach

We were right in front of their house and this is all you could see because of the double sand dunes

This is right in front of their house and the blue tents were for the BP workers. By the time we left they put these dunes all the way in front of the house over to the sand road.
