My Cowboys!!

Yesterday we put Joseph in his cowboy attire to take some pictures for a magazine. He seems so natural at playing the Cowboy though!! Here are some pictures. The weather wasn't great but I thought we got some really cute one of him. This was also party of his Halloween attire!

You never know..........................

This week has been quite amusing when I would go in to check on Joseph before going to bed. Monday night he went to sleep with his guitar in his hands like he was playing it. Tuesday night I went in to find that he had put his big stuffed Elmo in his bed and he was in our bed asleep! And if that wasn't enough Wednesday night I go in to check on him and he is alseep with his cowboy hat covering his face! It was too funny that I could not share. So here are a few pictures!!

A Week at Mimi and Papa's!!

Sweet Cousins!
Last Sunday Joseph and I left after church headed to Centreville. I had to work up there all week but altered our schedule a little so I could go with Mom and Dad to Mrs. Nancy's funeral. Please continue to lift them up in prayer as they try and get back to some normalcy in their lives. Saw lots of people I hadn't seen in a while and got to visit with Alex and Trey for a few minutes. Alex and I have the type relationship that we can pick right up where we last left off. I miss not getting to see her more often. Nana kept Joseph while we were gone and they had a blast.
Monday started my work week in Tuscaloosa. It was a good productive week I must say. I caught up with Pasha twice for lunch and was really good to get to visit and catch up! With work and kids we stay so busy but try to catch quick chats on our way home from work in the evenings.
Joseph had lots of fun with Mimi and Papa. Tuesday he went with them to the eye doctor in Birmingham for a checkup on Mom's eye and I think he entertained everyone there!! Mom said he did really good and she did get a good checkup on her eye. That afternoon he stayed with Nannie and Paw Paw and Jason while Mom got her hair done!! Us and our hair but we don't like to change those appointments I completely relate!! So he made the rounds! That night Papa, Joseph and I went and had supper at the George's while mom had her circle at the house! Thanks Nikki! Mom did have to take him to "Dr. John" as he says b/c he had a really bad cold. He got a good checkup though. On Friday he went with Mimi to the school to watch "Blaira's" as he calls her awards program. She got an award for good behavior! I think he enjoyed it! When they left there he got a treat-- Happy Meal from Mickey D's. Saturday afternoon Mom and I enjoyed a little bit of shopping while he stayed with Papa. We got the kids some really cute things at Lilly Pads and Belk! Saturday night we went to Longhorn's to eat. Despite the long wait the kids were good! After church on Sunday we got all of our stuff packed up and headed home. Daddy was still gone on his annual hunting trip but we will see him today!! We had a really great week with Mimi and Papa and I know Joseph throughly enjoyed it!! Here are a few pictures I thought I would share..............................

Much Prayer...

For all my blogger friends who read this blog just wanted to share.....

A very dear friend of mine's mother in law lost a very short battle to cancer last night. This has only been going on for the past two and half months so very sudden. God will get them through this but please be in much prayer for the Lightsey family as they embark on this journey in their lives. It has really hit home to me and made me realize that life is too short and they we all take too much for granted. Take time to tell the people around you how much you love them. We are such a busy society that sometime we lose sight of the valuable and important things around this. Oh how guilty I am of this as well. I can't possibly understand the pain and grief that they must be feeling but only can imagine and it just doesn't seem right. However, we all know God has a plan for us all and we must put our faith and trust in him. So please keep them in your prayers.

Also, Kensley was hospitalized yesterday with Upper Respiratory and Bronchitis. They are getting to come home today and we hope she get to feeling much better soon and that Mommy, Daddy and Blair remain free from it! So keep them all in your prayers!

Hope you all have a great day!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope each and everyone of you had a safe and Happy New Year! I thought I would share a few pictures from our night out! Jason and I went to a party with friends at Greenville Country Club while his parents so graciously kept Joseph for us! We had a great time! Also below is Joseph playing football! He got two football uniforms complete with pads and a helmet for Christmas. Here is one of the uniforms he is posing in below! We have had a very lazy weekend! This was my last time off before starting busy season. Not that I haven't been crazy with work already but it will be 6 days a week pretty soon. Probably before this month is over!! So I have tried to take it easy the past few days! Hope 2009 brings peace, health and happiness to each and everyone one of you and your family!
