Brynn Doesn't Share

Yesterday we went to church to celebrate the 125th anniversary of First Baptist Buffalo Gap-where my dad preaches. We walked in and talked to everyone and then decided to take Brynn to the nursery right off (usually we let her sit and play with us and then take her once the preaching starts). I dropped her off and she started playing with no problems. After church was out, I hurried back there to pick her up and when I walked in I was met with some indifferent smiles. I of course asked, "How did she do?" "Well..." one lady said, "she crawled over to this little boy (she pointed at a child who could walk), tackeled him, laid on top of him, and took his toy. So, I just took her over here and played with her one-on-one away from the other children." I was absolutely shocked and embarrassed!!! Our child isn't perfect-what?!?! I guess she has just played alone a little too long. I am going to look into trying to find some other kids her age to help with social skills. We just laughed about it all day. So, last night Justin buried her in all her toys and this is what we said she looked like when church was over after she had stole all the kids toys!!

A Whole New World

(I got busted taking her picture, so now she has to try and come take the camera away from me)

I know you are probably thinking "what in the world is this?" Well, Brynn just figured out that we have a backyard and there is life outside of the house. She sits there and watches the dogs forever! She laughs at them and talks to them in her own little world. She will lay her hand on the glass and when the dogs try to lick at it through the glass she just cracks up. What a wierdo!!!

Hardin-Simmons Homecoming

This weekend was the Hardin-Simmons University's homecoming. We decided to go up there for a little while and see RyAnn and Brock. My poor sheltered child wasn't too fond of all the noise so we ended up leaving before halftime. You could tell Brock's dad is a coach-while Brynn was having a panic attack from all the noise, Brock was fast asleep in his stroller! It was good to see everyone though! It is crazy how much my life has changed in the the three years since I graduated from there. I never could picture myself coming back to a football game with my husband and child. Weird!! Brock is going to be such a hottie!! I don't know if you can tell in the picture or not, but yes she does have his hair done all spikey! I loved it. I wish I could have gotten a picture of Rachel looking VERY beautiful pregnant!! It was overall a great time!

My cousin did her website at and I have to admit I am a little jealous! I went there and tried to build one but it was kind of complex for me, but very cute!

Crazy Pictures

All of us girls up here at work decided to bring pictures from our childhood to see just how bad each of us dressed. Man the 80's were a bad fashion decade!! Here is a girl I work with going to winter formal in 1988. I especially love the bangs and the teel green!!!

I brought my first grade picture because I swear it is the worst school picture of ALL time! I had gotten my hair cut like Mary Lou Retton, but it was starting to grow out. Then, I wanted to show that I had lost some of my baby teeth (forgetting the fact that my permanent teeth where growing in horribly), and finally I wanted to keep my eyes open for the picture. This is how all of that put together turned out!! (I want everyone to know this took a lot of self esteem on my part to post this publically!!!)

How crazy are those!! Hope it gave everyone a smile today!

Justin was playing with Brynn this weekend in her bouncy. She loves playing with him so much!! We laugh because he is the 'fun' parent and me...not so much. I will do the same things he does and she just looks at me like, "yeah, right!" It is like that movie "Liar, Liar". Justin is Jim Carrey doing 'the claw' and I am the stepdad trying to imitate it!!

A Walking Accident

I swear my husband, Justin, is the most accident-prone person there is on this earth!! If anything bad could possibly happen, it will happen only to him. This weekend he had a little accident and fell-no big deal right? Well, yesterday he went to get it looked at and he has broken the bone that connects his pinkie finger to his wrist!! Are you kidding me? The doctor has referred us to an orthopedic surgeon to consult with on Thursday. On top of all of this, he has started a new job so he is still on the 90 day wait for health insurance...NEAT! I told him he was getting way too expensive and that I was going to sell him to the highest bidder! So, now we are having to adjust to life with one arm. It is amazing how many things have become impossible for him to do (i.e. put deoderant under BOTH arms)! Needless to say, going to see John Heffron is out of the question so HSU homecoming is back on! Pray that everything is okay and we can just cast it without having to do surgery!!!

Relaxing Weekend

Yesterday we bummed around all day watching TV. This was Brynn laid out on the couch in her PJ's (yeah this was at 5:00 in the evening). Doesn't she look like such a little chubby roll!!!! I just love all her little fat rolls!
