Happy 3rd Birthday Nolan!

I cannot believe it has been 3 years since that cold, rainy day when we welcomed our precious baby boy into this world. Its amazing the love that we instantly had for the little red head.

Nolan, you quickly became our pride and joy. Mommy and Daddy never thought we could love someone so much until we met you. You put a smile on our faces everyday. This year you have learned so much! You have learned to talk, count, your alphabet, many songs and you are even starting to write your name. You love Thomas the train and Buzz Lightyear. You love to watch movies and play with friends! Most importantly, this year you became a big brother. Nolan, you are the best big brother! Knox just laughs watching you run around in circles. You are such a blessing to all of us. I always tell people that God made you just for me because you love to hug me and make me feel good. You are the sweetest boy ever! (I'm glad Knox is learning from the best!) I can't wait to see what next year holds for us. We love you with all our hearts! Happy 3rd Birthday, baby! Love, Mommy and Daddy

Happy Halloween!

Buzz Lightyear and Woody had lots of fun dressing up this Halloween and attended several costume partys. Buzz loved showing off his laser and said "Trick or Treat" for the first time at Gigi and Papa's house. Woody was very laid back and just tried to take everything in on his 1st Halloween. Happy Halloween everybody!!!

4 months old!


Sitting tall...this is my new trick and it just makes me laugh out loud!

After we say goodnight...

Sometimes I wonder what goes on when I shut the door after saying goodnight to my 2 year old. Well, this should give me a clue. We have found him asleep with his cowboy hat on every night for the last 7 nights! I just can't help, but laugh! He is so stinkin' cute!! I love my little cowboy!!

Family Fun!

Erik turned 30 on August 26th!!! Happy Birthday Erik!!
His birthday cake reflected his and anything UT!
Erik's Surpise Birthday Party...A big THANK YOU to Harold and Debbie for a GREAT party!!

Of course, Nolan had to help blow out the candles. He wanted a piece of cake from the moment he laid eyes on it!

Nolan playing at the park one day in the tunnel. We always play at the park while we wait on Daddy to finish running.

Knox was screaming at this point and Nolan thought it was "too loud", so he covered his ears!

Our Sweet Baby Knox was 3 months old on September 3rd!

What a sweet smile!

Daddy training him from Day 1...watching UT football and loving it!

Nolan and Knox in their cowboy hats. Knox was trying on part of his Woody halloween costume. Nolan just thought he needed his cowboy hat on too. Nolan calls it his "mowing hat", because he thinks Daddys bucket hat that he mows in looks like it.

First Day of School!

Nolan's first day of school at First Christian! Excited to learn and meet new friends!

He walked down the hall all by himself with his little backpack on. He walked in the classroom and was excited to be there until Mommy and Daddy had to leave. He cried, but only for a few minutes. He was excited because his friends, Wyatt, Jadon, and Dawson are in his class!
I love my new backpack. I would wear it all day if Mommy would let me. My backpack is almost bigger than I am!

Waiting on Mommy and Daddy. Ready for the first day of school!

My sweet baby is growing up so fast!

Little Brother, Knox's, first day in the bumbo seat. I think he likes it!
