Christmas Tree Shopping

We went to Temple, GA with our neighbors to pick out the ol' family Christmas tree. We have been watching Christmas Vacation, so we were ready! Gabriel and Addison just enjoyed running around and hiding in the trees. We got our tree home, with little problems, and Jonathan started on the yard. I'll try to get some pictures of that soon. Although, the fun part is watching him string lights in bushes and put together trains and reindeer. :o)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday. I am thankful for so much in my life, and hope to never take any of our blessings for granted. We had a nice day with my family, even though Gabriel missed a nap. And we missed Jonathan's group. We look forward to seeing the Bacca's around Christmas!

Love, Us!

Santa Came to Villa Rica!

Santa came into town on Tuesday, along with the lighting of the tree. So we went with our neighbors, and Granddaddy and MawMaw. Gabriel nor his new friend, Addison, would have anything to do with Santa. They are all talk until it comes to the real thing. ;o)

Steve, Cara & Addison (Not so sure about Santa)
Granddaddy and MawMaw were SO excited to see Santa!

The tree was exciting for them both
Ready to go home

All the Boys!

Monday I had two of my friends come by with their boys...and a nephew. Soooo many boys!! Jonathan was home as well, so he got out and kicked the ball with them.

I guess it's time....

So, after several comments from "people", and realizing that my child couldn't go to the next room up at church until he is potty trained, I've decided to grit my teeth and do it. I am NOT looking forward to this at all!! Gabriel has been really good at transition with everything...our bed to bassinet to his crib to his big boy bed...stopping the pacifier two days before he turned one...taking the bottle, taking the sippy cup, drinking from a real cup (sorta). But, with that said, he is TERRIBLE with diaper changes. Has been since 6 months old. So, whenever I even mention sitting on the potty I get a "no ma'am". (At least he is polite).

So. Tomorrow is it. We bought the video....the pull ups....the toilet paper...have a spreadsheet.... :o) No, no....no spreadsheet (sorry honey!)

Cross fingers, say prayers, we'll need it. And here I go. (Check back, I'll update)

Clean Diggity-Dogs

So, we finally had a little rain last night, and the boys decided it would be fun to play (or in Bailey's case, eat) RED GEORGIA CLAY! So, I tried to clean what I could, and put them in the basement to think about what they had done. After 3 hours in the basement, I decided to seek professional help. PetCo. The lady even used a white shampoo on Bailey! Didn't know they had one!

And, of course....my little ham, Gabriel wouldn't let me take a picture of the boys without him standing there in all his cheesing glory!

A couple of strays that needed a warm place to sleep and some food. :o)

Updated pictures

On our drive down to Georgia...one of the ways to entertain the boy.
When the movers came, I bought Gabriel this "cool" rug to play with.

This is my laundry room! I just had to show my cute border that matches our washer and dryer.

My friend, Amanda came over to visit, and Gabriel insisted we wear the lamp shades. You can't really tell, but Gabriel is doing his "cool" fingers in this picture as well.

Gabriel and Daddy see Gabriel's new big-boy room for the first time.

The car bed is a success!

Gabriel got to spend a little time with Daddy and Bacca Pa.
