Elmo Live!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! The weather was great, football was great and Elmo was great!! On Friday, we went to Montgomery with Jason's parents (b/c they were going anyway and thought we would conserve gas - ha!) and went to dr. appt's and shopped. I took Joseph by the Peds b/c he had this awful bump come up on his hiney. They ended up lancing it so to speak and put him on a round of antibotics. He said it was possible to be staph but not to worry it wasn't anything we should worry ourselves over that it was very common and didn't mean we were unclean or anything like that. I also had to get him some Ked tennis shoes and some church shoes b/c I thought it was going to be getting cooler but it seems to be warming up again!

Last night we watched the game with the Gregory's. They have 2 girls - Amelia - almost 4 and Ceil - almost 1. Joseph and Amelia had so much fun playing last night. We had some great food and lots of fun!! They finally gave it up about 5 mintues before the game was over and climbed in Mama's lap and went to sleep! And wow what a game!! Roll Tide!! Can't wait til next weekend we are actually going to the game! Hadn't been to once since LSU last year! Should be fun! Going with the Gregory's.

On Sunday, Janice & Caroline Meadows, Heather & Jackson Scott and Joseph and myself headed out to see Elmo Makes Music in B'ham. We stopped at Mickey D's in Clanton and got lunch and then headed on to the BJCC. Joseph kind of "freaked" out on me to begin with b/c of the loudness. He loved the characters but he gets really scared about loud noises. He finally warmed up to it and they all had a really great time. Despite only 45 minute naps from them all they did exceptionally well! Here are a few pictures from Elmo! Enjoy!

P.S. Our friends Keith and Daphne Williams had their little boy on Monday and Dave and Amanda Crenshaw had theirs on Thursday! Congratulations!!

Growing into such a Big Boy!

It seems like just overnight my baby boy has turned into Mommy's big boy. He is talking extremely well and our rides to and from "DD's" each morning are quite enjoyable. Jason and I just sit at the dinner table some nights in amazement wondering where does he learn all of this from. And just this morning he wanted to read me a book!! Where does time go. We have been completely potty trained - day to night and everything for about 2 months now and have only had a couple of accidents overnight. Somedays though I think he gets a little too big for his "britches" but I guess that is all in being 2. I bought him a fishing pole at Wal Mart on Friday and he has been "fishing" in my flowers all weekend. He loves it. He has even tried to catch the cat - Socks!! Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend. They arent' the best but I did want to update you guys. We go to Elmo next weekend and he keeps asking me when we are gonig. We also have a mountains trip planned with some friends of mine and their children in a few weeks and he hasn't forgotten about that either!! Hope you guys have a great week!

Visit to Centreville

Sweet Cousins!!
On Thursday night, Joseph and I headed to Centreville for a visit with the family. We only anticipated staying through today but my Uncle Howard passed away yesterday so we will be here until Tuesday. I thought I would share a few pictures we took of the cousins. Blair and Joseph have played all weekend and actually did really well together. I guess the older they get the better they play. Joseph was really sweet with Kensley and was so sweet talking to her and holding her. She is precious!!

Joseph Rides!!

Jason decided to put Joseph on Goldie against my wishes but they assured me if she did something crazy they would be able to get him off. Here is a short video clip of him riding. He enjoyed it. As he was watching his Wild Wild West Elmo he preceded to tell us he wanted his GaGa to get him a donkey!! We shall see about that. I guess he is going to be a little cowboy!!

Roll Tide Roll!!!

The kids after we won!!

We spent part of Labor Day weekend at the beach. The weather ran us home on Sunday afternoon but we had a great day on Saturday and then Saturday night went and watched the game with the McAbee's. The kids had soo much fun yelling Roll Tide and Go Alabama. Too Cute!! Here are some more pictures from the weekend.
