Christmas Card rejects!

For weeks, I have attempted to capture the perfect photo for our Christmas card. Here are some of the rejects:


We spent Thanksgiving with Paul's family then headed to Waco for a little time with my family. John Paul loved the turkey, dressing, potatoes, green beans, pumpkin pie, and cranberry sauce!

Granny got out his Christmas present --hope he doesn't remember!

All the boys!

After a long Turkey day:

John Paul and his crazy cousins, Bailey and Abby.

Where's John Paul??

Since John Paul has really started to move, we have found him in quite a few places:

Looking at the Christmas tree:

9 Months old!

Wow how time flies! We are so blessed to have such a happy baby boy. Even with a cold and ear infection, our little man is a joy to be around.

G-daddy and John Paul

This is one of his favorite places to play with the baskets to empty and books to pull down!

Happy Halloween 2!

Introducing Pope John Paul:

(Some might confuse him with Elvis or a boxing champ without the Pope hat!)
Which costume should he wear to trunk-or-treat, the lion or the pope? Or both?

Happy Halloween!

Lazy Lion likes to sleep. He stretches out and snores!

But if you dare to wake him up, he pounces and he roars!!

John Paul has another costume, so come back for more pictures soon!

Waco Vacation

Last week, we spent a few days "vacationing" in Waco at my parents house. We enjoyed our visit with family and had a fun day at the zoo.

How to Blow a Raspberry

One should always follow these steps when Mom is trying to take your picture:

1. Suck on bottom lip for maximum spit production.

2. Pucker lips, careful not to drool too much.

3. Stick out your tongue.

4. Close your eyes tight and blow with all ya got!!

5. Smile really big! You did it!

Fall Fun!

Today we went to the Pumpkin Festival with our good friends Katie, Griffin, Amber, and Luke. Since Luke is just 6 weeks old, we don't have any pictures of him...maybe next year. Anyway, I think John Paul had a good time, saw lots of animals and fell asleep on the hay ride!

Anyone else see the similarities??

Look Mom..Goats!!
