A work still in progress...

We are still trying to finish the Mustang. But just to let everyone know, I won the battle on the paint color. Red metallic!!

Let's get caught up...

The first day of school

Lexie is now in 2nd grade and Braden started K-4 @ HES.

I guess...

I just realized that I haven't shared anything that has really happened to us over the summer. Let me take you back to May. I got pink-slipped at HES, which was an emotional blow. I totally wasn't expecting that. It made for a really stressful summer...we didn't know where money was going to come from. The kids started back to school on a Wed., that night I got a call from the board offering me a job @ Burkett Center for the Multi-Handicapped. The conversation consisted of asking if I wanted to the job and I immediately said yes. I was extremely nervous not knowing what to expect...these kids are severely special ed. I love my job. There are positives and negatives just like any job, but these kids can be really loving. And the ladies that I work with are incredible. All I can say is that GOD IS SOOOO GOOD!!! I know that he made that job available to me.

'With all that said, I have a few prayer requests...1) Pray that God gives me some direction in going back to school. 2) My brother has changed duty stations in the Navy...he is now stationed in N.C. and will deploy in Jan. Please pray for his safety and the safety of the others he will be with. He will not be in Iraq or Afghanistan, he will be on the USS Nassau. 3) When praying for Dustin, pray for the rest of the men and women fighting for our country...they are fighting for us. 4) Lastly...for our country (enough said).

I should be blogging soon...

I was able to get all my pics back...thanks to the totally awesome Brian. He was able to retreive everything. I owe him big!!!!! I should have some new posts by this weekend. I hope you haven't missed me too much.

Ok, so I'm a little behind...

Yes, I realize that I've been quite neglectful of this blog. To my avid readers...I sincerely apologize. Now that I'm trying to be better, my desktop at home is on the fritz, which is where all of my pictures are being stored. I have to much to blog about...1st day of school, field trips etc. and my pictures are out in limbo somewhere being held hostage. I promise as soon as the problem is rectified, I will be back with a vengeance.

Reader Beware

Just a warning...this is the mega-post. There are 13 new posts. But again since it was brought to my attention that I was being a blogging slacker, I had to do something. So, you are now going to be caught up on the Northcutt Summer.

Family Shots

Ok, the beach pictures of the family turned out horrible. But these pics from the Lagoon side turned out great I think. I personally love the tree shots.

More pics

Our condo was on the Lagoon this year and we couldn't resist taking some shots that weren't your typical beach shots.

Beach pics

Just some pics of the kids.

Adventure Island

We played some putt-putt while down in G.S. We had a good time, even though Brandon won.

Gulf Shores Beach

We stayed in Gulf Shores and Braden and Lexie had a ball playing in the sand. They also met some friends while we were staying there. Mattie and Connor, from Little Rock, Arkansas, were they beach buddies for 2 days. They built castles and buried Lexie.

Naval Aviation Museum

When we were in Pensacola, we visited the Naval Aviation Museum that is on the Naval Base. It was a blast...the kids loved it more than I thought they would. The were able to see old and new planes, sit in the cockpit of the Blue Angels (the old ones of course) and look at different memorabilia. Then as we were touring the outside planes, we were able to see the Blue Angels and Fat Albert Jr. (the huge plane with the Angels) take off to go to an airshow. Braden thought that was awesome.

What will we do free food?

Dress like cows of course. July 10th was Cow Appreciation Day for Chik-fil-A. Dress like a cow and get free food, so the Northcutt's participated.

Waterballoons and Sprinkler fun

Bass Pro Shop

We went to the Bass Pro Shop just to play on a Saturday. They were having a free workshop for the kiddos to learn how to shoot a bow and arrow. Lexie hit the vitals in her second shot, Braden not so much. He was able to pull the string back by himself.

We went to Tyler and Brennen's to slip-n-slide...what summer isn't complete without that fun.

4th of July

This was a very laid back 4th this year. We decided to just go to Alabama Adventure with the other Northcutt's and watch the fireworks.

Blogging Slacker

It has been brought to my attention that I have not been on my p's and q's when it comes to my blog. Well, I've been just a little busy. This is the first summer that Brandon hasn't been coaching and I'm enjoying it or should I say trying not to kill him. Just kidding people...I do love him. Anyway, I will do better and post my pics soon, I promise.

A glimpse of what is to come.

Much love,

The "Sexy Beast"

Okay, about 2 weeks ago, here is the conversation...
Mom: "You need to go without you shirt when you play outside at Kristen's."
Braden: "Why?" (the most popular toddler question ever)
Mom: "Because you arms are so dark and your belly is glowing white."
Braden: "I taint" (I can't)
Mom: "Yes you can, and Kristen might call you a sexy beast if you do."
Braden: "Ha, no."
That was the end of the discussion or so I thought. About 5 days later, I was changing clothes and was down to the undergarments when Braden walked into the bedroom. That is when he proceeded to say: "Look at dat sessy(sexy) beast!" Well, it only gets worse. I let a young friend of ours come use the tanning bed before her senior banquet last week. Katie is getting out of the tanning bed and he tells her: "Dat's a sessy beast right derw(there)!" Are you kidding me? One little slip of a slighty funny saying and he uses it. In the right context! God bless me, I'm going to have my hands full!

Very Late Birthday post

For Braden's 4th Birthday we had a monster truck party. His cake was awesome...thanks to Valeria! He got some great gifts and we had a wonderful time!

This is our little snaggle-tooth girl. If you look closely, it won't be long before the other tooth comes out.

Some crazy sleeping...

Here is my crazy sleeper. He had been at Kristen's all day and was so tired that he couldn't climb all the way on the couch. He just crashed trying to get there.

Just some updates

Well, I noticed that it had been awhile since I last blogged. So here are a few things that have happened (will post pics later). Braden apparently can fall asleep in any position. He literally fell asleep trying to get on the couch. Lexie lost one of her front teeth, so Brandon is constantly calling her snaggle. Braden has also picked up on a little phrase that I joked around with him about. Stayed tuned for the "sexy beast" story. Braden also wrecked his Razor Scooter last week. If you don't have kids that's the 2-wheel scooter that you see kids riding. Needless to say we had our first bloody nose. Not fun! Sorry it's been so long, I promise to try to do better.

Community Easter Egg Hunt

Ok, so I'm a little late with most of the things on this post, but at least I'm getting them on here. Our wonderful friends Cliff and Tammy hosted an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids in the neighborhood. With the long weekend, cold weather and ball games going on we didn't have a great turn-out. But, we had a wonderful time.

Braden turned 4!

April 10th Braden turned 4. Wow, I really can't believe that he is that old. We got him a Razor scooter and the movie Horton Hears a Who. He wanted to go to Habaneros for dinner. So, Nana & Pop, Gindin & Susan and the rest of us went. He did not like it when they sang to him and I ended up wearing the sombrero.

1st Grade Field Trip to McWane Center

Lexie had a field trip to the McWane Center on the 10th. We had to other girls in our group and had a blast. Although, it was extremely crowded!!!

Easter Pics

The Easter Bunny...

Apparently the Easter Bunny comes by 2:30 a.m. in our house. Lexie came through the house at 2:30 Sunday morning and cut our bedroom light on to let us know that the Easter Bunny came. We told her to go back to bed. So, she looked at her basket and went back to sleep. The pics were from when they finally woke up. Braden got a Froggy book and try to shove it in Lexie's basket. I asked why. He said "I don't like fwogs."

Time sure flies when you're having fun. Well, I guess all of this has been fun. Braden turned 4 today at 11:12 a.m. I just can't believe that my baby is 4...I guess he's not a baby anymore. He's such a big boy!

Wednesday, April 8, 2009


Well, we had a very eventful weekend. I got to go to Wicked, thanks to my BFF (haha), Allison. That was last Friday, and it was absolutely amazing. I would go back in a heartbeat. Then we had our Easter Drama and it went great. We had 350 people come and 14 of those were saved. That is wonderful. I have pics from Lexie's field trip to McWane that I will get on her later. Something to baby will be 4 on Friday. Where has the time gone?
