CHRISTMAS PARTY (12.13.08)






Yesterday was the annual HPU Children's Christmas party! It is always so fun and Isaiah really likes it. Santa comes and bring each child a gift. Isaiah and Levi looked so cute in their matching sweaters so we took a few pictures after it was over. Isaiah got a little red backpack with some toy cars in it. And Levi got a little toy with a hammer - great! Levi was so excited to see Santa. He really loves characters - or really anything like that so I knew he would really like Santa and he sure did! It was funny. Anyway, only a week until we go to Alabama for Christmas!
Hope everyone is doing great! Oh and I and my family would really appreciate some prayers for my sister tomorrow. She is having surgery in the morning and while we expect things to go fine, we are still very anxious for her. A few extra prayers would be appreciated by all!!!

CHRISTMAS, CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE!!! (12.10.08)







Wow, I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted anything new. SLACKER AGAIN! Oh well, please forgive me. So as you see above from the pictures, I was trying to get a cute picture of the boys the other day and no such luck. One of them is always looking the other direction or something. OH WELL - and if you are wondering if we traded Levi in for the girl version, we didn't! His hair is just insanely long and he will be getting a hair cut when we get to Alabama at Christmas time. Until then, we will just have to suffer through everyone calling him a girl, and it does happen on a regular basis! Oh well - he is a cutie, what can I say!
Otherwise, we are doing fine. Anxiously awaiting being off work for awhile and going to visit my family. Christmas should be super fun! More pictures to come soon!!!! Hope everyone else is doing great!!!

UPDATE ON MADAGASCAR (11.28.08)

We are almost done collecting all of the Madagascar characters - the only one we haven't gotten is Gloria the Hippo! Isaiah loves playing with them and has multiples of some of them which he loves! Thanks to everyone who helped us get them by getting a happy meal!!!! We thank you!!!

We are taking Isaiah to see the movie this afternoon so I will be sure and give a full report!!!!

GAS PRICES (11.28.08)

So, our best news of the Thanksgiving season has been that we got gas yesterday for $1.63 - WOW! That is amazing!! Brian was upset though because right before we got that cheap gas, we passed a station and couldn't turn in time that actually had gas for $1.59 - so he felt like we paid too much for our $1.63. I told him I would give him 50 cents to make up the difference. WOW - I like it when it take $30 to fill up our van - as opposed to the $85 it took only a few months ago!! HOORAY!!!! I just wonder how much lower it will go...............

HAPPY THANKSGIVING (11.27.08)

video

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

We had a great Thanksgiving yesterday! We had lunch at Mark and KJ's house along with Nona, Popa, Uncle Freddie and Aunt Janine. It was fun and so yummy food! We planned to stay up there all day but of course Levi wasn't cooperating in the nap department and so we decided it would be best for everyone to come home and let him nap at home. Good choice!

Then last night we were invited to enjoy another yummy Thanksgiving meal with Betty and her family. Betty and I work together and she is the nicest lady ever and a terrific cook! So, we had dinner with her family and it was great fun. Isaiah and Levi loved their 3 dogs and Levi kept following one of them around to pet her. It was sweet! Betty also sent us home with some yummy pie - sooooo good!

Hope everyone else had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

LATEST NOTHING WITH US! (11.25.08)

video

Not too much new to report in the Morgan household! Brian has been out of town for about 5 days and we are so glad he is back home now!

Enjoy the above video of Isaiah acting silly after wearing his hat - it made his hair stand up! So funny!!!

Levi is doing good. He has been a little sickly lately - just cold, boogers and such. The usual - just enough to make a baby really grumpy but not really enough to take them to the doctor or anything like that. But I am sure he will be on the mend soon! Hope all is well with everyone else! Happy Day!

WHAT TO SAY?? (11.18.08)

Well, I think I need to add a new post here but I don't really have anything super creative or funny to say, at least I don't think so. So, what's been going on with us???

Well, Levi is eating so good lately, and lots and lots and lots of table foods. We hardly ever have to give him any baby foods. He doesn't really like to touch things, he would rather us just feed him on a spoon or put it in his mouth but he is eating like crazy. Some of you know that I have been slightly concerned about his weight and his eating habits but all seems to be great. Hooray for that!! And he is walking around EVERYWHERE - hardly crawling at all anymore. Good news is that he doesn't get as dirty because maybe, just maybe my floors aren't super clean. But bad news is that he does still fall quite a bit so we have more cries than normal.

Oh and tonight for fun, Levi pooped in the tub - SOOOOO gross! Thank you LORD JESUS that Brian was here because I do not clean up the poop like that. I grabbed the kids out of the tub and he went to cleaning. My sweet husband, he is willing to do all the things that I can't stomach doing or that I just don't want to (washing the dishes, kill bugs, and clean up the poop in the tub)! I got lucky, I know! Oh and Levi is also in desperate need of a haircut! Ok, I don't really want to cut his hair but Brian REALLY does. And after about the 10th person has called him a girl, it makes me think that maybe that is a good idea. I mean seriously, if you see a little person wearing a NAVY BLUE outfit with a soccer ball on it - what in your mind, regardless of what they look like, thinks that the child MUST be a girl???? And even walk up to me and say "Your little girl is SOOOOOO cute?" I, very friendly of course, said "I don't have a little girl, but this is Levi my son!" Seriously, PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE!!!!!! So, it's the hair, I know it, it is long and curly in the back and as much as it pains me to think that when we cut it, he will no longer look like a baby but then like a little kid, I think it might be time. BOOHOOOOOOO!!!!

Ok, on to Isaiah - not to much new to report with him. He is doing good! He got in trouble at school last week for being a "sore loser" apparently! They were playing a game and he didn't win and he threw his hands down and got mad. So, he is super competitive - he gets it honest you know, anyone met Brian before?????? I guess when we are playing games with him we should actually beat him sometimes to let him know that it is possible for him to lose. We will work on that!!!

So, start the prayers coming, Brian leaves on Saturday and will be gone until next Wednesday evening on a basketball trip. I can only imagine what insanity will happen in the 5 days he is gone. I am sure it will be good! It always is.

Alrighty, time for me to go, gotta get ready to watch The Biggest Loser!!!!! More to come!

THANKS (11.13.08)

Nona found Marty the Zebra and MotoMoto the boy Hippo - THANKS NONA!!!!! Only 5 more to go!!

THE TIDE KEEPS ROLLING (11.9.08)

Man alive - that game last night was completely crazy. I had a serious headache and felt sick to my stomach well after it was over. I went into the game KNOWING that we would win but I just wasn't sure how it would all play out. And at the end of the 4th qtr when LSU blocked our field goal to win the game, I just started screaming "NO, NO, NO, NO"! Levi was crying from me screaming and I couldn't watch anymore. I already felt sick so I just got up and walked out. I went upstairs to put the kids in the bath and as Brian was calling out the play-by-play from downstairs I was so nervous I could have thrown up. Then he said - WE INTERCEPTED THE BALL! Oh lordie, I got excited then and screamed again, then Levi started crying AGAIN. And then he is giving me the play-by-play, big gains, we are at the 2 yard line. TOUCHDOWN, I thought I would die. I am still screaming and Levi is still crying! Then Ashley calls, she is screaming, Jolea is screaming in the background probably because Ashley scared her screaming. Oh goodness, we won - thank you lordie! Now we have to beat Brian's MSU bulldogs and those Auburn Tigers and then..............Flordia in the SEC Championship game, which I will be attending - thanks Momma and Daddy! Oh Lord please, surely we can beat Florida too! Time will tell! For now we are #1 and enjoying it! ROLL TIDE ROLL!

Oh and the picture from this morning before church, Isaiah wanted he and Levi to dress alike so the only shirts I could find sort of alike were solid red shirts and jeans and then Brian got dressed and wore his Alabama red shirt too. They looked so cute so I took their picture! I wore black, not red, I didn't want people to think we were strange at church ya know!

THANKS (11.8.08)

THANKS GANNY!!!!!! Alex the Lion has been found - only 7 more to go!!!!!!!!

MADAGASCAR 2 (11.7.08)

Madagascar 2 comes out today!!!! The original Madagascar is Isaiah ALL TIME favorite movie. He loves it and has watched it a million times. He has Madagascar curtains in his room, he has every line from the movie memorized, he can do the dance that the move it monkeys do, you get the idea - he loves the movie. So, we have been anxiously awaiting this movie to come out. Unfortunately we will not be seeing it this weekend. We have no one to babysit Levi while we take Isaiah but we are hoping to take him at some point in the next few weeks. Anyway, so we will give you a full review when we go and see it.

Along with the new movie coming out is McDONALD's HAPPY MEAL TOYS AGAIN!!!!! So, McDonald's in getting in on the action for the new movie and we are once again asking for your help to help Isaiah collect all the toys. We will likely be going to McDonalds this weekend to get our first of the characters but we need your help getting the rest (grandparents, aunts, uncles, this is your time to shine!!!!)! See list below of all the 8 character toys:

Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, Melman the Giraffe, Skipper the Penguin, Moto Moto the boy Hippo, Julien the Lemur (aka - move it monkey), Mason the Chimp

So, if you happen to be at Mickey D's and order a Happy Meal - save the toy for Isaiah! And believe it or not - he loves his Kung Fu Panda toys and plays with them all the time. A couple of them he has multiples of and he loves it!!!!!

Thanks in advance and we will post when we get a new one so be sure and let us know if you get one - THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay tuned for the recap of the movie - Isaiah style!

NEW LOOK (11.6.08)

Thanks to my sister Ashley for the new look of our blog page! I thought I would change it up a little for winter time. Enjoy!!! and THANKS Ashley!

BAMA is #1! (11.2.08)

This should be a very exciting day for me and many of my fellow true Alabama fans, but I am slightly nervous! The Alabama Crimson Tide is indeed #1 in the polls. It seems a little scary to be going to LSU next week being #1, in Baton Rouge, where OUR Coach Saban use to coach. OH LORDIE! I can't even think about how nervous I will be watching that game! Above pictured is Isaiah wearing his Bama shirt that of course he wore to church this morning, along with Brian sporting a Bama shirt as well!

GOD'S AN ALABAMA FAN, GOD'S AN ALABAMA FAN, right? That's what I will keep telling myself anyway!!!!

LEVI'S FALL (11.1.08)

So, my MOTHER OF THE YEAR 2008 award is offically be stripped away! Levi fell down the stairs at our house yesterday evening. For those of you who haven't had the priviledge of coming to our house, we have a very old house with very old, steep, hard wooden stairs. Luckily they don't go straight down, we have 2 stairs then a landing, and 10 or so stairs going in another direction and then another landing and then 4 stairs going to the top. Not sure if that even makes sense or not. Anyway, we have a gate at the top of our stairs to prevent such terrible things from happening. We were getting ready to head to the first WBKB game last night and I was helping Isaiah change clothes. Levi was crawling around upstairs and I hear a THUMB and then a few more THUMB, THUMB, THUMBs, and then SCREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!!! Oh lord, the unthinkable has just happened. I didn't lock the gate and smart little Levi opened the gate and went down the 4 steps to the next landing, thankfully on his belly! THANK YOU LORD that he was not more hurt. It scared the living daylights out of me, I started crying, Isaiah was crying and Levi was screaming. It was awful. Brian had just left to go early and I called him and he immediately rushed home. I guess we have all had these accidents and it is a very quick and harsh reminder that they can get out of our sight and into BAD trouble before we know it. Most of you know that I fell down the same steps, except the longer portion last year right after Levi was born and broke my toe (you know how all your toes point up, I had 4 pointing up and the baby toe pointing LEFT - OUCH!) We are so very thankful that he was on his belly and not standing because then he would have rolled and I don't even want to think of what terrible injuries he would have had then. For now he just have 4 nice bruises on his face. I tried to get a picture but you can't really see them that well. 3 on the forehead right below his hair line and then 1 under his left eye. Bless his heart!!!

Moral of the story - don't be like me, watch your kids at ALL TIMES!!!

WHAT WILL SANTA BRING TO ISAIAH AND LEVI?? (11.1.08)

Yesterday we took a little trip to our new fancy Walmart to check out some potiental Christmas presents that Santa might want to bring to our house! Levi was so funny - he loved the animated things - like the Elmo Live doll. He was kissing it and loving on it - Brian and I were laughing so hard. You can hear him in the video giving it kisses! Then as you will notice at the end of the video - the price $59.88, that is INSANE for a talking Elmo! Or am I totally out of touch with toys. It seems overly expensive to me. Anyway, see the 2nd video, Levi also loved the Yo-Gabba-Gabba Brobee dancing doll. He actually cried when we walked away from it. More reasonably priced at $15. Santa likes it when he try to save money!!!

Isaiah also found lots of stuff he liked. Everything Little Einsteins, Diego, Wonder Pets, Backyardiagans, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse - he loved everything associated with his favorite shows. We got some good ideas about what they both were excited about so we - I mean Santa has some good leads for Christmas time this year! Hooray!

TRICK-or-TREATING (10.31.08)

The boys had a great time trick-or-treating tonight. Isaiah counted up his candy and he got 48 pieces - WOW - that's alot! Levi got alot too. Looks like me and Brian have lots of candy to help eat. We did have a few trick-or-treaters at our house but only a few before we left to head out ourselves. Isaiah got tired towards the end so I ended up carrying him - not fun carrying a 40 plus lb kid! After we got home we headed up to the men's soccer game for a bit and Isaiah redistributed some of his candy to everyone. Fun times!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy more pictures below!
Above is Levi the Elephant (age 13 months) and below is Isaiah the elephant (age 9 months) - same costume. Levi is little for his age - Isaiah was big! RECYCLYING is great!!!!! People comment alot on how they look alike and I normally don't think so at all but seeing just their little faces in the costume I guess they do sort of favor each other!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN (10.31.08)

HAPPY HALLOWEEEN to everyone from The Morgan's!!
I will post more pictures of the boys trick-or-treating!

MY WEEKEND TO BAMA (10.29.08)

I ended up going to Alabama last weekend to visit with my parents. My mom was sick, we thought at one point that she had a blood clot in her lung but it turned out to be pneumonia. She is feeling much better now so that is great news!

The highlights of the weekend included BAMA beating UT - ROLL TIDE!!! It was super fun to watch the Bama game with my parents and sister. The original family together again cheering on the Tide - it doesn't get much better than that! I took Isaiah with me and he and I got to sneak up to B-ham to see some of my friends. My very best friend April celebrated her birthday on Friday and so we went up to see her for a few hours. Here is a picture of Isaiah and Owen (her middle child)! Those 2 had the best time playing together. We also enjoyed seeing Jessica and Joshua and I missed see you Joanne and the babies (hope they are both feeling better)!!

We made the 9 hour drive to Tuscaloosa on Thursday and then made it again on Sunday on the way home. Isaiah and I had a good time and are very thankful that GANNY is AOK!!!!!

MARK AND KJ (10.29.08)

I am adding a new blog link to the right side here. You can go and check out Brian's little brother Mark and his wife KJ's page. They are starting the process of adoption and have all their updates on their blog. Check it out!!!

ANNUAL CARVING OF THE PUMPKIN (10.29.08)

So, I am once again, WAYYYY behind in posting these. I am going to try and get 2 post done tonight but we will see how that actually goes.

(Levi at the pumpkin patch - what a cutie he is!!!!)

Ok, we carved the pumpkin. Well first we went to the pumpkin patch and bought one, Isaiah picked it out. It might have been the biggest pumpking there but hey, you tell a 4 year old he can pick whatever one he wants, you just don't know what you are going to get. So, it is big! He and Brian carved it, a crazy little face! I bought the candle and we gave him a name - BOB! His official name is Bob-o-lantern Morgan - or at least that is what Isaiah said. Bob for short though. Bob has gotten a few ants in his head but he is still going strong. Enjoy the pictures below and of course Isaiah thought the insides of Bob's head were GROSS!
Daddy and Isaiah before carving the pumpkin

GROSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!


The finished product! Larger than your average household pumpkin!


Bob-o-lantern sitting on the front porch!

And of course Dad posing with Bob, Isaiah and Levi as well!

ISAIAH AT THE PUMPKIN PATCH (10.18.08)

Isaiah's class took a trip to the pumpkin patch earlier this week. They had a ball! They took a hayride and each got to pick out a pumpkin to bring home. Brian went with them because I guess we are still seriously over protective parents and won't let Isaiah ride in the transportation provided, we would prefer to drive him. No seriously, last year all of the other parents in his class went with their kids as well so this year Brian was going to go with Isaiah. He was the only parent that went, so it was 7 kids, Brian and Isaiah's 2 teachers. OOPS!!! Anyway, enjoy a few pictures of Isaiah and his classmates at the pumpkin patch!!




TOTAL SLACKER (10.14.08)

So, for all of you readers out there who have been thinking I am a total slacker for not posting more, you are right! I AM! I am sorry! Here goes our last weeks updates (nothing to exciting I promise)!

Last week Levi went to the doctor for his 1 year check up. He was 19 lbs 4 oz (still in the 10%) and something like 31 inches tall (pretty normal for his age). As some of you know I have been slightly concerned about his weight because when I took him at his 9 month check up, one of the doctors (not the one we normally see) sort of made me think he wasn't gaining enough weight. Seriously this kid eats alot so I was sort of stressed. Well, we went back to our favorite Dr. Poston this time for his year visit and she wasn't worried in the least. She said as long as he is eating and he has fat pads on his thighs and arms, we were ok. Check - he has that! So, I am less worried. We have ALMOST completely made the transition to milk/sippy cup. He is having lots of milk in a sippy cup all day long but we haven't broken him away from the night time bottle yet. He just loves it sooooo much and I can't possibly think of taking it away from him. I still have been giving him formula though as not to confuse him with the milk in a bottle situation. Plus, I think he likes it because it is warm too and I am not going to get in the habit of heating milk up for him at night because we will NEVER break him of it then! I promised Dr. Poston to be done with it by...............our next appt at 18 months - hahaha! No seriously, maybe another week (or 2 or 3) of it and we will be done. HEHE - it's the last baby thing, ok maybe I have the problem here. I will work on that!

Isaiah is being funny as ever! He is selling cookie dough for his class at school. The cookie dough is really, really (I mean seriously really) good but it is sort of pricey. He has been hitting up all our family members (that are close enough to pick it up) and still has a few more to go so be on the lookout if you haven't received your call. He is quite the salesman. My mother had more than done her share by buying 3 tubs of cookie dough when he asked to speak to POPS and suckered him into getting another tub. He was then so excited about selling 4 tubs at one time! He just couldn't believe it. Then he turned around to me and said "Hey, POPS got the M&M cookies and I wanted those too!" I then explained that more than 1 person can get each kind because they have plenty. OHHHHH..... got it MOM!

In other funny Isaiah stories, tonight in the bathtub I noticed a large bug bite on the top of his foot. Here is the conversation that followed:

MOM: Isaiah, what's that big red place on your foot?

Isaiah: It's a bug bite!

MOM: It's really big - what kind of bug bit you?

Isaiah: A REALLY big bug, I think it was one of those YELLOW JACKS.

MOM: Oh really, you think it was a Yellow JACK??

Isaiah: For sure, those Yellow JACKS they have really big mouths so they make really big bite marks!

MOM: Got it!

Note to self, stay away from those dreaded Yellow Jacks (known to the rest of the world that don't live in Isaiah land as Yellow JACKETS)!

Brian is doing fine, working hard as usual. He is trying to finish up his MBKB media guide so that is consuming alot of his free time.

I have taken up a new hobby (because you know I am bored alot), reading. Anyone heard of it. JK. Really I am not much of a reader really but my sister and mom suggested some Nicholas Sparks books and BOY - they are gooooooood! I read The Wedding first, it is the sequel to The Notebook (as I am sure some of you have seen that movie)! It was such a sweet love story, very good! Then my sister says, you have got to read The Guardian next. So I went and checked it out at the library on Saturday. OH MY- I finished it last night! That is the best book ever. I must admit there were some parts that I wasn't expecting and what I thought the book was about, well it wasn't. But it was really, really, really, really good. And it draws you in from the introduction. You are hooked from the beginning. Now you must be asking when have I had time in 2 1/2 days to read a 360 page book, well I don't know really. It just happened. I couldn't put it down. I actually thought seriously about not going to work yesterday so I could stay home and finish it but I didn't. I highly recommend it - reading this book that is, not going to work to stay home and read it, bad idea!

Alright, enough for now! I have to go and watch The Biggest Loser while I eat my ice cream, haha!!! Promise to write more often or at least I promise I will try to write more often! Love you all!!

LEVI'S BIRTHDAY (10.7.08)

Well, I am officially a complete slacker for not putting all of this up sooner! Here is some video from Levi's birthday!! What a cutie he is! He really enjoyed his cupcake. There are 2 quick videos of him playing with his new toys and also saying HI and MOMMY (of course I have to post that one)! My dad took all the video of him eating his cupcake so I will post the link for that video, it is about 15 minutes long so it is too long to upload here. So enjoy the videos! And the couple of photos!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEVI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LEVI TAKES SOME STEPS (9.30.08)

Levi took a few steps tonight and we were able to capture it on camera! His teacher at school this morning said that he had done it yesterday at school but we had not seem him until tonight. What a sweet little guy he is. Pardon the yelling and cheering on the video - obviously we were cheering him on. Also, he is making the transition from baby food to solid foods and formula to whole milk nicely. Today at school was the first day he had "real" lunch and his teachers said he did great. And he has had lots of milk and seems to have no allergy to it. He still likes the bottle at night time and morning time so that might be tougher to break than during the day. Oh well - baby steps I guess! Oh and a breakthrough this past week, Levi has learned a new word - MOMMY! He actually says mommy correctly. It is sooooooo sweet! He also says Daddy now vs. saying DaDa before. His other favorite word is UHOH. I promise to post pictures and some video from his birthday this past weekend very soon! We are having a very busy week at work with our Alumni & Family Weekend happening this weekend, so this is all I can manage tonight and I thought it was too cute to wait to post later! Enjoy!

THE BIG SLEEPOVER (9.21.08)

So, for a week or so now I have been promising Isaiah we would have a sleepover. He loves more than anything to sleep with Brian or I (or us together) but NEVER gets to. We don't usually do the family bed thing but on a rare special night we might let him sleep with us or if one of us is out of town we will let him sleep in our bed. He thinks it is the biggest treat ever. So last week I had been promising him that on Friday night we could have a sleepover. Well to make things just slightly more interesting I decided to set up our 4-person tent in his room for our sleepover - campout! When he opened up his door to go into his room he was SOOOOOO excited! He kept saying "THIS IS SOOOOO COOL!" Well actually his first words were, "what the heck is this?" And then he was wowed by it! He was beyond excited! To make things even more fun I brought several games, books, coloring, and of course snacks for the sleepover. So, we stayed up and played for several hours, even learned a new song (You Ain't Nothing But a Hounddog! - Katie you would be so proud of my little man singing Elvis). It was super fun! The only downfall was that I didn't sleep at all - I mean really I did not sleep. Isaiah has a queen size bed and since I basically put his bed in the tent there was plenty of room, it was just really hot in the tent. No air circulation or something. At about 3:30 am - I felt like I had not slept at all so I got up and went to my bed. Isaiah was a little sad with me in the morning that I had gotten up but he got over it quickly. All in all it was so much fun and I know he will be asking to do it again soon. Maybe next time can be Daddy/Isaiah campover!!!!

Brian and I know for sure that Isaiah's love language is Quality Time. Well, things like this are right up his alley. Being able to spend 1 on 1 quality time with me or Brian is the most important thing to him. Needless to say we had a blast and he (of course) wanted to keep the tent in his room for now. So we let him. Levi even enjoyed climbing in the tent as well. Enjoy some pictures below!

Me and Isaiah sitting in the tent in his room!

Us again!!!

Our first game of the night was Candyland! A favorite of Isaiah's - here he is smiling away!

And finally Isaiah wouldn't let us forget to bring his pictures from his night stand in the tent with us! He has a picture (from L to R) of Ganny and Pops, he and Pops in their Bama gear, Ali, and he and Brian when he was a baby! Side note - no favoritism was shown in the selecting of these photos by myself - only Isaiah, he chose them, they are his photos on his night stand - notice my picture is no where to be found! A lot of mornings we will find these photos in the bed with him! How sweet - especially the one of Ali.

Thanks for looking at our pictures! All else is well in the Morgan household! Getting ready for Levi's birthday on Saturday. I can't believe he will be 1 - that is completely crazy! We are going to Atlanta to spend his birthday with my family for the weekend. This is a big birthday year for us - I just turned 3o, Levi will be 1 next weekend, Brian will be 40 in December and Isaiah will be 5 in Feb. All milestone birthdays for us! Oh and in other news of interest - Levi decided to eat some chalk tonight - green chalk to be exact! Brian and I walked in the playroom and there he stood aganist a chair, eating some chalk - chunks in his mouth and green all over his lips. I freaked out of course and started screaming thinking at any moment he was going to stop breathing. Brian assured me that Crayola wouldn't make something that would actually KILL a small child, even if they ate it - not even sidewalk chalk?? No, he promised me! Maybe it will just make his poop bright green - that would be really gross. Funny!!!!!! Everyone have a great week!!

LONG TIME NO POST/RUGS (9.21.08)

So, it's been over a week since I have posted - sorry guys! Life is sometimes busy with 2 little people to deal with. Although I always have LOTS to post about, I don't always have the time to sit down and do it. Come to think of it, I shouldn't be doing this right now. I should be folding clothes, or washing more clothes, or starting dinner, or watching the kids or something else but I am choosing to do this now. So, on to the actual post............

RUGS, RUGS, and more RUGS!!!!

As you all know, Brian and I both work at High Point University. Well, apparently some generous donor who owns an oriental rug company donated LOTS of rugs to HPU. The school had tons left and decided to let the employees each select a rug for FREE! Now, we aren't talking about walmart rugs now, we are talking about REALLY nice and REALLY fancy rugs!!! I was thinking what in the world am I going to do with a fancy rug in my house, much less 2 fancy rugs, nothing else in our house is even close to fancy. Anyway, Brian and I got to each select one and we think we did pretty good. We got one large rug that measures axp. 8 feet by 10 feet and then we selected a runner for our foyer area that is slighty to long measuring 2.5 feet by 12 feet long. They are both really pretty and really nice and really fancy and I am sure really expensive, so I surely hope no one spills juice or something on one of them. Maybe one day we will have a fancy house to put our fancy rugs in! For now, we will just enjoy the rugs!!!! Enjoy the photos below - as you can see Isaiah and Lucy couldn't seem to get out of the photo!!

The Runner
The Big Rug (not unrolled all the way)



CRAZY KIDS (9.13.08)

Brian and I have totally crazy kids. And they are completely different from each other. For instance, Levi is into everything and is totally a climber. See below, notice that he is on top of the tool table and climbing up to where the TV is in the playroom! And he looks totally guilty like I caught him doing something he shouldn't be doing!
And Isaiah has a new trick - he has learned to cross his eyes! Now seriously, are 4 year olds suppose to be able to cross their eyes. I did tell him that if he kept doing that they might get stuck like that, he wasn't scared at all! He thinks it is really funny! So when I was trying to take his picture all he wanted to do was cross his eyes!
They are both musically inclined! See both below singing and also Levi playing the saxophone - Aunt Ashley would be so proud!!!
And Isaiah has some serious photography skills - see below the pictures he took with my camera! He was so proud!
Photo of his playroom!
Isaiah's TV and DVD player in his playroom - and also his click frog game and his sippy cup!
The TV - Brian was watching Georgia vs. South Carolina
And finally Koala sitting in a red circle - great artist photo you know! Hope everyone has a great weekend! And Roll Tide - Bama is winning 41-7 right now with 11 minutes to go - yeah!!!!!
