Christmas Morning!!!

Our Little Family had such a good Christmas Morning! Laila was so excited to see what Santa had brought her. "A Cook, a Cook," she said! She made Carl and I food all morning long. She put her apron on and got right down to it!

What it looked liked after Santa Clause arrived!

Where is the water, Mama???

The Vacuum!!!! A girl's best friend!

My Christmas Morning Meltdown!! Wow, it was a good one!
After opening all our presents, we went to my sister's house for brunch and to have Christmas with my side of the fam. We had a great time, but unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures. Sorry Guys!!! Thanks to everyone for making Christmas Great! We love you all.

Christmas Eve!!!

This year on Christmas Eve, we were with the Sundstrom Clan. We had a great time! The dinner Jane made was sooooooo good. I have finally got the pregnancy appetite. I could eat and eat and eat.....and eat!! The little kiddies got some really good presents! My child, of course, wanted Cole's Ipod.(She thinks she is 16)! We had a great night! Here are a couple of pictures that we took..........

All 3 of the little munchkins, getting ready to open their presents!

Avree & Laila!

The 2 pregnant Mama's!!

The 3 CRAZY brothers! Who is the weirdo in the middle!!HAHA! How cute are these 3????


My Latest Obsession.........

This says it all........ Scarves!!! I am obsessed. I could have 100 of these if my husband would let me. Everywhere I go, I flock to the scarves. Don't be surprised if everyone I know gets one of these from me for Christmas!!! Watch out!


The Perfect Little Host!

Happy Birthday Laila!!!
On Sunday, we celebrated Laila's 2nd Birthday! I can't believe that my baby is already 2 years old.....how time flies!!! Laila and I had been getting ready for her party all weekend long and when Sunday night finally rolled around, she was so excited for her party. She greeted everyone at the door with a hug and a kiss..... so excited everyone was there just for her. She knew it was her big day. She was the perfect Little Host!!!
I can't believe that I have been blessed with such a beautiful and sweet little girl. She has been a ray of sunshine to everyone around her since the day she was born. I never knew that one little person could make me so happy. She is my best friend!!I am so grateful to have her as my daughter, Happy Birthday Princess!

Dancing with my Daddy before my party even got started!

Mama and me! What is so funny, Laila??

Her she is opening a present. ( I opened the rest! She was so distracted with all that was going on.)

Daddy and Mama got me a Bike!!! It looks like we won't have to spend hours on the Internet any more..... or will we????

The Birthday Cake. I decided to bake a cake this year..... BAD IDEA!!! It was supposed to look like a cupcake, but it turned out looking like a Big Booby!!! Oh Well, who doesn't like to see a booby every once in awhile! Ha ha!

See!!! A Big Boob Cake. Sorry Laila!!!


All of the things I am Thankful for........

* Laila's I Love You's
* The Sweet sound of her I'm Not's
* The flutters in my tummy (brother)

* The way I feel when I am in his arms
*The way I feel when Laila is in my arms
*The love and tenderness of our parents

*All the people in our lives that bring us comfort and joy!

This Thanksgiving was amazing. We got to spend quality time with all of the people we love most in the world. Being around all our family, really made me realize how truly blessed we are to be surrounded by such great examples. I know I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for all the wonderful people in my life I have to look up to. I just wanted to thank all of our family for such I great weekend. We love you all VERY MUCH!!!!

The Sundstrom Clan! We finally are all together... Yah!!

My Cute Dad & Mom

The boys before Thanksgiving Dinner.

Laila & Kade. Best of Buddies!


Laila's First Cooking Lesson!

We were so bored today........so what did we do? We made brownies! I took these pictures and I thought they were so cute. How often do you get to see Laila at her dirtiest? She did allot more eating than she did cooking! (so did I)


Some Random Fall Pics!

Carl, Laila & Jason at Bryton's Football Championship Game. Congrats to Bryton ~ 1st place!!!!

At our Halloween Party, we wrapped the 2 little ones (Laila & Kade) up like mummies. They thought it was GREAT!

This is one of the many pics were Laila will not stay still long enough to look at the camera. This is the best we have of me and my baby!!!

Laila & My Sis! Don't they look alike? Laila could be her little girl!

Grandma Rhea & I. Isn't she beautiful? We don't know what we would do without her.


It's A Baby Boy!!!!

We found out what we are having and we are so surprised and so excited at the same time. We can't believe it is a little boy! We thought that we were going to have all girls, but I guess we were wrong. I am still in shock. What am I going to do with a little boy? I feel like I only know girly stuff. Carl is so excited!! Finally, it will be 2 against 2 around here. We keep telling Laila that she is going to have a brother and she says "No, A Sister." I guess she doesn't believe it either. I am trying to figure out how to put the ultrasound pics on here, but every time I scan them, they are to dark. If anyone knows a trick, let me know. Well, I guess it is time to start shopping!!! Ha Ha!
I got the ultrasound picture on! It has a little bit of a light spot. OH WELL~


We Love Halloween at our house! Laila was the cutest Ladybug EVER!!!

Laila with a mouth full of candy! She ate enough candy to last us a lifetime.
We had a Halloween Party with the Fam. We put up tombstones & we had an awesome fog machine. We love to decorate for Halloween. This is one of our favorite Holidays. Hopefully, we had the Spookiest house in the Neighborhood.
Lately, Laila will not stand still for any pictures. She is on the move constantly. She looks like she has had it with Halloween.


Another Dirt Bike Accident!!!

Can you believe it??? He wrecked on his dirt bike again!!! The 2nd big wreck this riding season. Luckily, he is doing ok. He hurt his foot pretty bad, but the rest of his body is just really sore. (The picture is of his foot 3 days after the wreck - still pretty swollen!). There has got to be something broken! If it doesn't start to feel better by the end of the week, he is going to go in for a CT Scan. This time, he also got a horrible concussion.He needs to put that bike away for the season and have some time to regain full use of his brain. Ha Ha!!! I know that I laugh and make fun of him, but we really are so glad that he is ok. Laila and I don't know what we would do without him. We love you, Baby!!!


Laila Jayne

I can't believe that my little Laila will be 2 in December. It is so crazy how fast she is growing and how busy she is!!! She is the sweetest and most cuddly little thing. She never leaves home without her "Snugzz" and her "NaNa". For all of you that don't know - her "Snugzz" is her blanket and her "NaNa" is her Binky. I have been saying that I am going to take that Binky away for months - but I think that it is finally time!! We have also been working on potty training. That is actually going pretty well. We have a lot of old habits to break before that new baby gets here!!!

Laila is talking like crazy too. She says everything! It is like I have a little copycat with me all day~ I have to be really careful what I say. Ha Ha!!! Laila is so excited for Halloween. She is going to be a ladybug. We tried on her costume and she just stood in front of the mirror and smiled. ( I wonder were she gets that!!) Everyone is just going to die when they see the pics. When I ask her what she is going to be for Halloween she says " A bug! Ooh!" It is so cute. She is also going through a phase were she loves to put on my high heels and walk around the house. She is so girly!! But, not to much of a girl to play with trucks or be obsessed with Daddy's dirt bike.

Laila loves the men in her life! I swear - her Papa Dee and her Daddy are her favorite people in the world. She loves to ride on Papa Dee's mower. She has the best Gamma and Papa ever!!!
