The Trip to Nowhere

So I get a Groupon for some pizza at a place called the Black Dog Market. Um, it took us about 30 minutes to get there and it ended up being a mini grocery with a few tables. The oven wasn't even working and we ended up waiting 40 minutes for pizza that wasnt good. So funny. It was good family time though and we left with smiles on our faces none the less.

Breakfast with Santa and a Train Ride at the Zoo

Breakfast with Santa was a lot of fun with all the chaos of the cousins. Weston still doesn't quite get the whole concept of Christmas but maybe next year. He still had a good time with mom and daddy, maymie and pappy, and all the rest of clan. Food was delicious too. We decided to take a trip to the zoo afterwards so Weston could show daddy the fun train ride. I think they both enjoyed it. :)

Trunk or Treat 2011

Weston was so stinkin' cute in his skunk costume. I had a blast decorating our trunk to go with the theme of his costume. Its amazing what you can do on a tight budget with a little creativity.

Trains! at Cheekwood

We visited the beautiful grounds of Cheekwood this morning and it sure was exciting. Weston loved the Trains! exhibit. Ran around yelling "trains!" the whole time. Absoluetly an amazing piece of work and so many man hours had to be put in to put it together. I sure hope they bring it back next year.

Walden Farm

We had so much fun at the Walden Pumpkin Farm. The weather was sunny and a perfect 75 degrees. My little hard worker wanted to pick up all the pumpkins and put them in the wagon all by himself. He loved watching the Pumpkin train go by, going through the hay maze with daddy, and checking out all the animals. What a wonderful fall excursion. I'm 23 weeks, feeling great, and lovin' my growing belly. Now if I could just come up with a good name for this little guy.

September Outings- Love this weather!

70s, sunny and feelin good. We went to a bunch of parks, the zoo and visited our good friends Dean and Hudson. Weston turned 17 months this month and mommy is loving every minute of his sweet and curious personality. He's got a lot of words, a strong left throw (watch out), and a kiss to die for.

Horse Day!

Weston experienced his first time on a horse. Seemed pretty confident and comfortable. I hope he likes animals as much as me and someday will ride some horses of his own.

Happy Mother's Day 2011

So thankful for my mother and the example she has been for me. To be a mom is to be a true servant and that is so beautiful. I love you Lord for giving me an amazing mother and I love you Mom for giving me the Lord. Both give me great joy. And to be a mommy is such a blessing. I love my son for the challenges he gives me and the pride he brings me. Happy Mother's Day! And thanks for the car, baby!

Destin Easter/Erika's Wedding Trip

What a wonderful trip! Headed down Tuesday evening. Got half way and stayed at a nice hotel. Headed off at a leisure time the next morning so Phillip could make it for golf with Pappy and Uncle Shane at noon. Weston and I headed straight for the pool. We ate at Kenny D's on Old 98, Poppy's at Baytowne Wharf, Louisiana Laignappe and the Sunquest dinner cruise for Erika's wedding reception. Erika's lingerie shower was a blast with a goddess theme and a dance party on the beach. The beach wedding was flawless with a gorgeous bride and handsome groom and the boat cruise reception was the cherry on top. 2 houses, 2 grandparents, 8 parents, 2 soon to be married and 11 grandbabies is a riot but I wouldn't have missed it for anything in the world. The tail end was a little sketchy with Shane and Amanda's car breaking down, having Caleb and Caden join Weston in the back of our Malibu for the last 250 miles, and then leaving my phone on the car as we pull out of their neighborhood and it breaks into a thousand pieces. Oh well. Those being the only setbacks, I say it was a trip for the books!

Weston's First Birthday!

I can't believe its been a year since this precious little gift was brought into the world. With all the blessings and memories we have had thus far, I can't imagine whats to come. I am so honored God has given me the opportunity to be a mother and trust me to be a guiding light to one of his children. I pray that each day me and Phillip can glorify Him through the man we will help Weston become. We only have a few years of influence so lets hope we make the best of it and have a sense of humor for all the draw backs we may endure. I love you Lord for giving me a glimpse of how deep your love is for us by giving me a son of my own. I'm in awe of how deep my love has grown in a matter of a year and amazed to think of how deep it will grow in a lifetime. You are MIGHTY! Oh how I love you sweet Weston Joe! Happy birthday, baby.

We had a wonderful birthday party with family and friends. Thank you all for celebrating with us!
