Neighborhood Party

Saturday our neighborhood held their annual Fall Bash. It was cold but it was fun to get out and visit with people and watch Lucy play! They had big bounce houses, face painting, balloon animals, pop corn, and cotton candy! 

It was a cold night in Texas!
 Lucy had a blast!

 The End.

Henry you started crawling at 5 months old! This is way too early to start crawling! You started by pushing off with your feet and that got you where you wanted to go. Then you added your arms to this push off method and that got you there faster. You learned that with your belly on the ground you couldn't go as fast as you wanted so this week you have started crawling on your knees! You almost have it down. I am so happy to see your determined little personality but I wish you would quit growing up!

The End.

Lucy Speaks.

I was feeding Henry Rice Cereal. Lucy wanted to try some. Before I could explain why she shouldn't eat it she ate the whole thing. I didn't tell her it was mixed with BREASTMILK! She said it was Delicious! Ha!

Lucy took her Papaw's order the other day. He said he wanted steak. She said, "We don't have steak." He asked what she did have. She replied, "milk, lettuce, turkey sandwich.:" He asked what she calls that kind of sandwich? She replied, "I call it Disgusting."!

Jonathan passed a little gas the other day and Lucy said, "Dad, God is watching you!"

Lucy took a poop the other day and it was bright green. I said, "Why is your poop so Green?" She said, "God just made it that way."

Lucy prayed the other night and she said, "Please Lord Protect me". (My mommy heart swelled when I heard this precious child ask her Lord for protection) "Please Lord Protect me. Protect me from monsters. I am so scared of monsters! And protect Henry from monsters!"

She has been ending her prayers with "Goodnight. See you Later. Amen."

She loves to say, "I'm just teasing you!"

I love every age but she sure is funny right now!

Petit Jean Mountain Wedding.

Jonathan and I attended one of my architecture friends wedding. Meredith and I lived together when we studied abroad in Rome and I am so happy that she found the love of her life! She had the prettiest most personal wedding I've ever been too! She did such a good job on all the details. I love that they had it at the family cabin, outside, in the fall! 

My best friend from Italy, Claudio! He came to the us to visit and to attend the wedding! I haven't seen him in 6 1/2 years! We picked up where  we left off! I just love him!

I showed this picture to my mom and said, "Hey look, it's Claudio!" She said, "Oh, what a beautiful couple. Are they expecting?!" I responded with, "Mom you are a jack ass". She didn't realize why I was so mad until I asked her if she recognized who that girl was in the picture! (In my defense I just had a baby... I have 10 pounds left to lose but I was wearing a size 6 dress! I'll lose the last 10 pounds after I'm done breast feeding)
 Meredith and her Dad.
 The view was amazing!

 Me and my husband.
 I love this man.
It was a fun night filled with wine and dancing. Jonathan and I slow danced to At Last, which was our wedding song! and I danced the night away with my friend Claudio! We had a wonderful time!

The End.

Arkadelphia Weekend.

This weekend we had left both of our kids in Arkadelphia so we could attend a wedding in Morrilton. I missed my kids dearly but it was so good to get away for the night and sleep in until 9 the next morning. I would have had a full night sleep if I didn't have to get up and pump during the night!

Papaw and Henry. Before we left for the wedding on Saturday Becky and I took Henry to the Hot Springs doc in the box because my little man has another ear infection. I'm ready for tubes!

 Papaw became the proud owner of a hoveround wheel chair. Lucy loved riding on it.
The End.

Manna Visit!

My mom came to visit us for a whole week! She left this morning and I am so sad! We had a good visit we were so happy to spend time with her! I think that is the worst part of everyone moving off, we never see each other! 

Lucy slept on Whitney one night that Manna was here. 

 Manna and Lucy went to get their nails done last week. Lucy said,"Manna, let's go relax and get our nails done!"

 That night we went to Babe's chicken in Frisco. I love this restraunt, it is family style cooking and you get to choose your meat: Fried Chicken, Chicken fried steak, chicken tenders, cat fish or pot roast! We take all of our visitors here!
 Lucy, Henry and Manna.
 Lucy took a picture of me too!
We enjoyed our visit and can't wait to see the family over Thanksgiving!

Last week.

Last week was a rough week for our family but I didn't want it to go undocumented. We traveled to Arkadelphia to attend Matt's funeral and visitation. I'm glad we went. I'm glad we got to hug on Julee and Lisa. They are constantly in my prayers right now as they find their new normal. I was very thankful for Jonathan's family for watching our babies! 

Here's a few pictures from our week. 
Henry David. 

 Me and my handsome husband.

 My little nephew Asher. I love kissing on him. He doesn't like it and points and me and says Stop It.

Remembering Matt.

Matt Turner was killed in an car wreck Saturday night. We are heartbroken. We are heartbroken because we lost our friend. We are heartbroken for Julee and Preslee. We have no words.  Jonathan and Matt were childhood friends. They grew up together. They played football together. They went to seperate colleges but always stayed in touch. Jonathan was an usher in Matt's wedding and Matt was an usher in our wedding. We loved him. We love Julee and Preslee. We are sad. Please keep the Turner and Bell family in your prayers. 

Matt and Lucy

Skunk attack

I found a skunk in my house!

I decided go keep him. 

 I bathed the skunk with his sister. No I don't believe boys and girls should take baths together but I was tired and it worked.

 Back to my skunk. Thank you Preston Coble for the cute outfit!

The End.
