I've been tagged

I've been tagged by my friend Jana. So here it is...

Braden was getting cleaned up after just being born. If you look real close, he still looks "cheesy". It was such an easy delivery. Brandon was able to get this extreme close-up.
I tag Leslie, Natalie, Nichole Carr & Jennifer Foster.

Poo-Poo Book

Braden came to me the other day saying that he needed to poop. I said ok, what is in your hand? My poo-poo book. Then he proceeds to tell me that he can't poop without it. Where does this kid come up with this stuff?

Funny conversations

The other day Lexie was in the livingroom. She bent down and her knee popped. Lexie: Did you hear that? It was my knee.
Mom: Yes sometimes that happens.
Lexie: Yeah, when your old.
I didn't find that part too amusing.

Tuesday night Braden got in trouble for having a horrible attitude.
Brandon: Go tell mom your sorry, now.
Braden: I'm sowwy.
Brandon: Sorry for what?
Braden: For bein a little butt-hole.

Today as Braden is pooping on the potty, he makes a discovery.
Braden: Mom, look there is a clock on the floor.
Mom: No buddy, that's a scale.
Braden: Oh, that tells you how old your feet is.
Mom: (as I snicker) No it tells you how much you weigh.
Braden: Yeah, that's what I said.


Thursday we realized that the shower in the master bath was leaking for the 5th time in 4 years. Talk about frustrating. So Saturday, out everything comes. And this is the loveliness that we now get to look at. Do you know how difficult it is to go from a 4x4 shower to a tub and shower unit? There is no room and everytime that you move that dreaded curtain sticks to you like plaster. And do I need to mention the fact that I get indirect light in there or that I can't take my usual 15 minute scalding hot shower? Why you ask? The steam builds up and actually makes water run down the walls...not good for the paint. I'm just so ready for this to be over!!!

Monster Jam

While Lexie, Annaleise, Tammy and I were at the Galleria...Brandon took Braden to the Monster Jam at the BJCC. He was in utter amazement. All he could talk about was Grave Digger, once he got home.

Lexie's Birthday @ Sumo's

Lexie decided that she wanted to eat at the place that cooks in front of you (meaning Japanese). So the family went to Sumo's. Hamaker's and Northcutt's.


I finally got the Circle of Love pendant that I've been asking for, only 4 years later. I'm just kidding, wow, it was worth the wait.

The Mother of ALL Posts!

Sorry I've been such a blogging slacker. I'm now somewhat caught up. I have to go back and get pictures from the Northcutt Christmas. I didn't realize that I had overlooked them. And on top of that, I have to blog Lexie's birthday dinner to Sumo's. Hopefully, I'll catch up tonight.

Santa, Nana & Pop and GiGi and The Northcutt

Just a snippet from ALL Christmas! The top is the Northcutt Christmas, middle is Christmas morning with Santa Christmas and the bottom is the Hamaker Christmas. (Traci I broke up all the pics just for you.)

Our Christmas Jammies

We always get Christmas jammies to wear Christmas eve. This year I was so happy to find my plaid jammies without paying $40 per set. They were so cute!

Children's Christmas Program @ CRBC

Lexie and Braden both had programs the Sunday before Christmas. Lexie's group did sign and Braden was a sheperd for preschool.

McWane Center on Iron Bowl Saturday?

Yes, that's right. I know that this is sooo far overdue, but here it is. On Iron Bowl Saturday Marette, the kids and myself took off to the McWane Center. We wanted to take them because they were doing the model train exhibit and were playing the Polar Express...which is Braden's favorite movie. Had a wonderful time!!!
