Buzz Light Year

Well, you can't help but laugh when you see this picture. My nephew absolutely loves costumes and dresses up in them every chance he gets. So, of course anytime we are there my son goes straight to Logan's dress up basket and puts on his Buzz Light Year costume. When we arrived at their house today, Logan had on Batman! It is hysterical. Enjoy the pictures of Buzz in action.

We Love the Lyon Park!

Almost every afternoon when we get home from school, we are headed to the Lyon park to meet friends! It is a great park and the kids love it. I love it, too. #1 son was running around on this particular and didn't pause long enough for a snap shot.

The Artist

Well, my daughter is just about the busiest body anyone will ever meet. She is absolutely constant motion and will wear you out just watching her. Will she sit down and watch t.v.? Absolutely not!! It requires her to be WAY too still. BUT, the one thing I have found that will keep her bottom in a chair- drawing! Maybe we have an artist on our hands. She sat in this chair for at least 20 minutes and drew pictures for me one night while I was cooking. I was so shocked I had to capture it.

We had such a fun halloween night with great friends! We started the night at the Downing's house, went trick or treating, and ended the night at the Downing's house with our tradition of a delicious bowl of chili! The Simpson's were dressed as a Star Wars Clone trooper and a baby bunny!

My Junior Kindergartener

It is hard to believe that #1 son is in junior kindergarten! Wow! How the time goes by so fast. He is learning so much. Here is a small list of some of the wonderful things they are doing and learning!

*memorizing scripture

*writing the alphabet and learning the sounds of each letter

*learning to write his name

*the importance of community helpers




I love hearing him retell the Bible stories he has learned. It is amazing how children at this age are just little sponges. He knows so many incredible details. Praise God! Here is a picture of my precious child in his school uniform!

Football season

I enjoyed every moment of our mother/daughter afternoon.

The boys had a great father/son day at the football game.

Of course we love being right down the road from Oxford and Ole Miss. We took both the kids to one football game, and last weekend, the boys went to the Ole Miss vs. Arkansas game. While they enjoyed the game, Maggie and I enjoyed a mother/daughter day around Oxford. I had a great time getting her to pose for the camera with her big, blue eyes and precious smile.

Verse of the Week

Our verse this week is Luke 2:9-11. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a SAvior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

Biblical Virtues to pray for my children

"God, please cultivate in Tyner and Maggie the ability to show true humility toward all."
(excerpted from Pray! Magazine issue #4))
