New Years 2013!!!

We had plans for New Years Eve with a
big group of Walker's friends' parents. 
They have invited us every year and
it seems like something always comes up:(
Unfortunately this year was no different.
I had thought Hudson was over his stomach
virus so we went to Target that day.
Let me just say that he was NOT over it!!!
Target can assure you of that;(
But you know what?!?
What better place in the world to be
than at home with our little family???
Our friends still invited Walker
over since Huds was sick,
but he chose to stay with us!
I know a day is coming when he
won't choose his family for NYE...
Troy had fun doing fire works with the kids!
I do not like fireworks AT ALL...
not even sparklers!!!!!!
But my kids are crazy over them;)
We ate pizza, watched a movie,
snuggled and kissed at New York's
New Year's and then again...since
ALL were still up at our midnight!
We were a little silly, too;)
We also played some Memory!!!;)
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!
"Happy Happy Happy"
to celebrate with my family of five:)
Sister Pie was determined that she was
going to stay up all night.  She made this that
night before she finally fell out around 1:00 am!
Welcome 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hadlee was so excited to wear
another "off the shoulder" shirt
that Aunt Lynna got her!  ;)
I love this girl like crazy!!!
The absolute best part of New Year's
Day though is that it's my beautiful
sister's BIRTHday!!!!
First baby born in Waco in 1965!!!!!!
Every year my mother cooks
for us on Michelle's birthday...
and the foods coincide with typical
New Year's Day traditions. 
Michelle is a FUN person to celebrate!!!
Mother couldn't find the other number...
but Michelle liked it that we
all had to be guessing forty~what?!?;)))
Praying her wishes come true!!!
Happy Birthday to my kind-hearted,
beautiful, fun, smart little big middle sister!
I couldn't love her more!!!
So thankful for her AND my sweet mother
who Troy says is the best cook in the world!
I tend to agree:)
Just a little something to
think about in 2013.....
"See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."

Weather Girl

For as long as I can remember, Hadlee
has been obsessed with the weather.
She is fearful of storms and asks to look
at the weather channel quite often.
One day she was playing "Weather Girl"...
she had even drawn a chart with
"Waco" and "Temple" with percentages
and temperatures!!! So cute:)
And what weather girl doesn't have
a great lead newscaster?!?

I love everything about this...
so glad I was recording, too:)

Moments I will treasure forever!!!!!!!!!!!

"For where your treasure is,
there your heart will be also."

Christmas Aftermath :)

I love the days after Christmas...
we usually stay home and just play:)
I love our home and we
love being home. 
Especially with lots of new toys;)
Haddie in her outfit from Aunt Lynna
playing with her new Barbie &
bike from Aunt Michelle:)
Not happy being the new American Girl;)
Mom, let's open these new Barbie things next?!?
Walker Planking;)
Sweet Hunter B took his own work
money and bought the kids Toys R Us
gift cards.  I thought that was just too sweet!!!
They were so pumped to go spend
their money!!!  I love me some Hunter B:)
 I love looking out my window and seeing
my kids playing with their friends....
American Girl Party!!!!!!
Even with Hudson;)
Too cute!!!  Shirt might be
too true though sometimes ;)))
My sweet baby love had the stomach
virus over the holidays:(
Broke this mama's heart...
even though he was such a trooper!!!
 Love every minute spent with this Crazy Guy:)
As soon as Huds was over being sick,
I decided to tackle potty training. 
I have not pushed it with any of my
kids...and it's been pretty easy with all
three.  Hudson basically took
two days!!!!!!  He was so easy....
and thought he was such big stuff!!!!!
(He is still asking for a pull-up
to poop...we will get that next!)
Except he insists on wearing his
undies backwards so he can look
down and see Spiderman!!!
SO proud of this almost THREE
year old little love of mine:)
The latest, greatest iPad Prop!!!
Works great until the Little Brother
moves or wakes up!!!!!!!!
Ready for the Cottonbowl
and some Johnny Football!!!!
Due to illnesses, we kept having to
postpone our Christmas with the Barkleys:(
but we were finally all well enough...
I absolutely love these two
precious little angel babies!!!!!!!! 
 And their big sister. 
AND of course their mommy, too!!!
Absolute best of friends(:
Precious pie making some last
 minute wishes for 2013........
Wishes come true or not...
We are blessed beyond measure.
