Little Mufasa

Have y'all ever seen the Lion King?

Well here is the miniature version of King Mufasa! Y'all we had so much fun tonight with Bryson. He was amazingly good with his costume on.

Our neighbor across the street let us come to their house a little early so that my mom could see Bryson trick or treat. I don't think he realized at first why he was all dressed up.

But y'all can see when Ms. Christy put candy in his bucket he was realizing what was happening :)

I've been trying to teach him how to roar like a lion for months. As you can see he wasn't getting into the character.

Our little family

Me, Bryson, and Grandmaw.
I was so excited that my mom was able to come and see Bryson before leaving to work the fall festival at my old church.

And I had to post a picture of the back of his costume. The red ribbon on the end was supposed to be tied in a bow, but Bryson kept stepping on it.

We took Bryson to several of our neighbor's houses in the neighborhood and then went to my in-laws neighborhood and trick or treated some over there. I tried not to keep him out to long. The weather has cooled off alot here, and I would hate it for Bryson to get sick.

We had the best time tonight! Bryson wasn't into the costume at the beginning, but once he started getting all that candy in his bucket, we couldn't get him out of that costume. I think he had it on for about 2-3 hours. So I definitely got my moneys worth. I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to put it on again tomorrow. ha!

Tom Brady or Justin Bieber?

Bryson's hair is getting out of hand...

We can't decide who he looks more like...

Tom Brady of Justin Bieber?

I have to admit that it's kinda' growing on me!!!

Three Girls and a Guy

My friend Michelle and I have been dying to get our kids together for a play date for months. Her daughter Avery is two months older than Bryson and is one of the cutest little girls I have ever seen. We were a little nervous though about getting them together because they are both at that hitting and saying no phase and y'all know I would have died if Bryson would have hit her. But everything turned out great and I think they had alot of fun together. :)

We decided that a dinner date would be best for their first time to meet. So last Wednesday we got together for dinner at Chuy's. It's a new Mexican restaurant at the Summit and it was soooo good! I would literally eat Mexican food everyday if I could!

They were so sweet sharing each other's food. Avery would give Bryson some of her chicken nuggets and B would give her some of his cheese quesadilla.

Aren't they just the two cutest little things you have ever seen? Michelle kept telling me that Bryson needed to give Avery some tips on eating. He is such a HAM!

Michelle was brave enough to let Avery try out the push up. It took her a minute to figure it out, but once she got the hang of it you couldn't pry it out of her hands.

There was a waterfall outside the restaurant that the kids went banana's over!

And here it is...Bryson's first kiss! Y'all I have got to teach him that girls don't like open mouth kisses :) Ha! It was so sweet and I just adore Avery. Who knows maybe this is B's future wife (just kidding Michelle), but you know I would love to have y'all apart of our family!

I can't wait to get together again! The kids and just so sweet and I really like that Bryson is spending time with other kids besides going to the nursery on Sunday's. I think next time we are going to try to take them to the park. With them both being so active and running all over the place, it would be an ideal place.

Weekend Visitors

We've had quite a busy weekend at the W house. My dad came in from Texas on Thursday and spent a few days with us, we spent the day at the pumpkin patch on Friday, and Saturday...well y'all know what we do on baby! haha!!! And Aunt "Ge-ca" (Erica) and Uncle Seth came down from Tennessee to visit on Saturday too. I normally like just hanging out around the house in my pj's and relaxing, getting mentally ready to start back to work, ha! But it was nice having the family around to spend time with!

My step-mom didn't get to visit on this trip, but she had my dad bring Bryson this adorable pumpkin she painted. She painted on for us and for my brother and his wife. Isn't it UBER cute? She painted ours with just two teeth because the last time she saw Bryson he only had two teeth!

Bryson was going to make sure grandpa got his reading time in too! He loves for you to read to him and loves to turn the pages. After you get finished with one he's got another right behind it for you to start on. I really hope Bryson loves to read! I can't tell y'all how much I love it when he brings me a book and then puts his arms up for me to sit him in my lap. Melts my heart!

Our trip to the pumpkin patch on Friday was a blast! I was thrilled that my dad was able to get to go with us. He and my step-mom only get to visit about every three months, so I was glad that we had waited kinda' late in the season to go. We had alot of fun!

My dad had to leave on Saturday. I know he was sad to go, but while he was here we did purchase a webcam for our computer. Me might not be able to use it alot with Bryson still being a little too young, but eventually I think it will be great to have. Dad, Amy, and Bryson will be able to talk to each other and I fell like it won't be like they miss out on as much. It was great having him here this weekend. I always seem to get alot of things accomplished when they are in town. ha!

After my dad left, we headed over to my in-laws house for our annual pumpkin carving. Oh and did I mention Aunt Ge-ca and Uncle Seth were going to be there. It's been over a month since we had seen them and every time Bryson sees a picture of Erica he points at it and says "Ge-ca" "Ge-ca!"

Two peas in a pod!

Erica was having so much fun with Owen and Bryson. She loves her two nephews! They are both sweet sweet boys. Owen is getting so big and rolling all over the place. I can't wait to see them in action on Christmas!!!

Can y'all tell Auburn won in this picture? ha!!! We are one rowdy bunch! I always have so much fun watching the Auburn games with my in-laws.

I forgot to take pictures of all the girls carving pumpkins. But this is the one I did. Erica brought these cute little pumpkins for Bryson and Own. I am no artist by no stretch of the means, so Nana drew up the design and I just carved it out. It turned out cute! I wished there was some way I could keep it without it shriveling up.

Hope y'all are having a wonderful Sunday. The weather has been beautiful here. But I hear rain is in the forecast. Love the rainy days on my week to work :)

Pumpkin Patch 2010

We finally got to take Bryson to the Pumpkin Patch. I've been waiting for today since it opened in late September! I feel like it kinda' starts off the fall season (even though we're a little late). HA! My dad is here through Saturday, so he was able to go with us. He took some great pictures! I was soooo glad that he got to come so I could enjoy this day and not worry about taking pictures :)

Bryson LOVED the petting zoo! Of course his favorite was the cow. He would look at it and say "moooooo!" He loves cows. I wished I would have gotten him a cow costume for Halloween instead of the lion. Oh well! There's always next year!!

I don't think Bryson had a clue what to do with all those pumpkins. He would sit by a few then get up and find some other ones he liked.

He finally picked out his favorite! Bless his heart, he was trying so hard to pick it up all by himself.

Our little Family

Bryson was so sweet on the hayride. He such a little people watcher. Always observing others around him.

My two favorite boys!

I just had to put this picture in here so y'all could see how cute his longall turned out. I could not have been more pleased with how it looks. She has a scarecrow that I think I'm going to order for next year!

We had such a fun time! I can't wait to go back next year. Even though Bryson wasn't able to do alot, I think he still had fun and I enjoyed getting him out. Anytime that I get to spend with my two boys is a blessing! I am so thankful for my job that allows me to spend every other week at home. I wouldn't trade my life for anything!!!

Fifteen Months


You are fifteen months old today!

So what have you been up too these days?

You weigh 25 pounds, are 32 inches long, wear a size 4 diaper, size 18 month clothes, and size 5.5 shoe.

You are walking EVERYWHERE and are into EVERYTHING! I can hardly keep up with you these days. I feel like all I do is tell you "no Bryson" because you are always into things you should not be in. ha!

Your favorite thing to get into is the garbage can. It's in the kitchen and easily accessible, so it looks like I'll be trying to find a new place for it. I think you like it so much because you can see yourself when you look at it. You love to point at it and say "baby!"

Your favorite toy is my cellphone. I keep it on the coffee table in the living room and everyday you go and pick it up and put it up to your ear several times during the day. You like to put it up to my ear and hear me talk too. Just the other day you found my calculator in my purse and you have been using it as cellphone too.

You love going into rooms and shutting the door. You like it when we sneak up on you and play peek-a-boo behind the door. You will just giggle and giggle!

You would rather play outside or with your toys than watch TV. But if I put on Baby Noah or Baby MacDonald you will sit on the floor and watch those. I think you really like looking at the animals. We still haven't taken you to the zoo yet, and I know you would have LOTS of fun!

You LOVE books! You like for mommy and daddy to read to you ALL the time.

You like just about anything we put on your tray. I call you our human garbage disposal. ha!

You are such a HAPPY baby all the time! You wake up happy every morning. The only time you get upset is when I put you down for a nap or when it's time to go to bed. I think you're afraid you're going to miss something important.

You have started saying "momma" when you see me. It melts my heart! You will point your finger at me and say "momma!" Oh, I could just eat you up!!!

You are such a strong willed little boy. These last few months have not been the easiest. You have started throwing fits and love to poke your lip out as far as it will go and cry those crocodile tears when you don't get your way - and sometimes I just secretly have to laugh! You have a temper - that's for sure. But as hard as it may be right now - I hope that in the future you stay that strong willed!

I love you so much!

7 Years Is Just Too Long...

This past Saturday Clay and I got to spend the entire day together (just the two of us)! It was like a "day date!" Haha! It was something Clay and I really needed! I think it's really important for couples to get the chance to spend time together. I hope to try and have "dates" once a month!

The weather was nice, but a little too warm for October. We were going down to Auburn for the Auburn vs Arkansas game. I haven't been to Auburn or an Auburn game in over 7 years. The campus has changed sooo much! I could hardly recognize it.

The one thing that has stayed the same. Jordan-Hare Stadium!

This was our view of Tiger Walk. Cam Newton is in there somewhere walking into the stadium! The crowd went crazy when he and Coach Chizik came through. Maybe next time we will be able to get a little closer.

Nova, War Eagle VII. You can barely see him right below the flag pole.

The AU student section! This is the place to be on gamedays. All the orange and blue shakers, standing up for the entire game, and singing the Auburn fight song. Oh, how I miss those days! My heart will always be here and I hope that Bryson will get the chance to experience this beautiful place!

Me and my man!!

CBS was televising the game and I got a chance to see Tracy Wolfson for 33 rows up. Ha! And can I just tell y'all that she is waaayyy skinny in person!

Had to take a pic of the Goodyear Blimp :)

This was the touchdown by Cam Newton, where he leaped over the entire offensive line. And for all my AU readers, this boy is BIGGER and faster in person. He was really fun to watch!

During the 3rd quarter I thought we might be riding silent all the way home, but our boys pulled out a BIG win! The game was amazing and Saturday is going to be an even BIGGER game!

Arkansas has an incredible team! We sat around some of there fans and they are very nice and were really good sports. This was by far mine and Clay's favorite game we ever attended. This was the perfect date!!! Good luck to ALL the SEC teams this week!

I Love my Job!

I have been a pediatric RN for the last 3 1/2 years. I LOVE what I do and I am very blessed to be a part of so many children's lives. I enjoy the people I work with and wouldn't trade this job for anything...other than getting the chance to be a SAHM :) It never fails that God will show me something to apply to my life or just how real He is when I'm here. Other than being a mother to the most precious little boy, I know this is exactly where the Lord wants me to be.

I've been working some overtime lately and have gotten the chance to see what goes on around the hospital during the day. Working night shift our patients usually sleep, so we don't get to see them up and around and doing various activities within the hospital. Well today I got to see just one of the many things that the hospital has going on. Wells Fargo is coming to the state of Alabama and is replacing one of the bigger banks in our area. So today they came to the hospital with a Stagecoach and horses for the children to ride.

This was the Wells Fargo tractor trailer truck outside the hospital that carries the horses around.

As I was leaving to head home I walked outside and took several pics of these horses. Y'all they were so beautiful! I guess I could have gotten closer, but I didn't want to look like a crazy person snapping pictures. HA!!

These last two pictures I took from upstairs in the lobby. They had the circle blocked off so they could ride the children around. It looked like alot of fun and I know several of the children REALLY enjoyed themselves :)

Alot of the time I complain about working (mostly on my facebook status and to my husband on Monday evenings when I know I'm about to have to start my work week), but I really am blessed to have this amazing job! And instead of complaining I should be thankful for this opportunity and look for the things that God is trying to teach me while I'm here.

Not to much going on this weekend at our house. We hung out in our pajama's all day Saturday and watched ALOT of football. I couldn't believe the endings to the SEC games...South Carolina beating Alabama, the LSU/FL game was crazy, and my Auburn Tigers, well they've got to stop letting teams come back in the second half. They are going to give me a heart attack! HA!! But if was a GREAT day for college football :)

Today Bryson and I stayed at home from church. At some point yesterday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder (probably from picking up B a million times a day) and Bryson has started coughing and having a runny nose. So Clay went ahead to Sunday School because when I woke up first thing this morning I looked over at Clay and said "I think I might have signed up to bring breakfast today, but I can't remember" YIKES!!! I have got to get better at writing things down.

We are BIG Atlanta Braves fans! I've been a fan for as long as I can remember. My dad and grandparents lived in Atlanta for most of my life, so I've grown up loving the Braves. My brother and I even got the chance to meet John Smoltz and several other players years and years ago. So y'all know we are excited about the Braves being in the playoffs! Last night Eric Hinske hit a 2 run homerun to give the Braves the lead over the Giants and we were going banana's...

Even Bryson was getting excited!!!

But the excited was short lived when the Giants came back to win the game in the 9th inning. Clay was sooo disappointed. The Giants are leading the series 2-1. The Braves have one more home game and if they win it's back to San Francisco for the last game. I hope they can pull out these next two wins!!!

Next week Auburn plays Arkansas. I think it's going to be a great game!! And guess what??? Clay and I are going!!! YAY! Haven't been to a game since 2003, so y'all know I'm UBER excited!!!
