Exercises with Sarah

Sarah has become an expert on yoga and other exercises lately and loves to show off her skills.

Find plenty of space to lay down

I know it's tough let's do some more
More Push Ups!

Sweet Brother and Sister

Sarah is finally at the stage where I can set her down and she and Jimmy can somewhat play together. It is so cute to watch them pass toys back and forth and laugh. Sarah really enjoys watching Jimmy run around and laughs at him constantly. Jimmy is still very protective of Sarah, but he loves on her all the time.

Yes there are always toys all over my house, no matter how many times I clean them up!

Covenant Christian's Fall Festival

Last night we headed over to Covenant Christian school to their fall festival. Jimmy has had so much fun this fall, he will have gone to a total of four festivals after tonight. He calls them all parties, and now asks every morning if we are going to a party. :) Lacy is the art teacher at the school so both kids were excited to see her.

Jimmy got tired of wearing his hot monkey costume,
so luckily he had a halloween shirt under it!

Halloween Toddler Skate

Jimmy was so excited to go to toddler skate yesterday and dress up for their costume contest. All of the kids were winners!

This NEVER happens

Sarah actually fell asleep in the car and I was able to carry her in and put her in her crib. So sweet!

Stop, Drop, and Roll

Our play group was able to visit a brand new local fire station Wednesday morning. Jimmy was in heaven climbing all over the four fire trucks. He loved pretending to drive the "big red trucks." One of the firemen put on his whole uniform to show the kids what he looked like, Jimmy started to get scared and ran to hide. I went and picked him up, and explained that if you saw a fireman in his uniform to give him a hug. That way he would not hide in our house if there was a problem. Jimmy ran right away and gave him a big hug!

Pick Your Feet Up!

Jimmy shuffles his feet when he walks, especially when he is tired. I have been trying to get him to pick up his feet when he's not working.

Daddy's Home!!

I did not tell Jimmy that daddy was coming home a day early, so I had to video tape his reaction when he saw him. Priceless!!!

Couldn't Be Prouder



Ok time for me to brag about my husband! At the end of August Allan and Steve (his business partner) decided to host a conference. A conference for marketers, designers, coders, business people, freelancers, and anyone who wanted to be inspired by amazing business people. Because I was taking care of the kids I was not able to attend. The whole day of the conference I was following the tweets on twitter about what was going on and what people were saying. All day my eyes filled with tears of joy for Allan and Steve. They worked so hard on getting everything together and it came together perfect. I did not see one bad thing said about the whole day. It is so wonderful to see that people respect your husband and think so highly of his opinion on things. They plan on hosting another one in the spring, my mother in law has offered already to watch the kids so I can go. My in laws were able to go and have expressed how proud they are of Allan. My sister in law Alicia was giving away "free massages," which got wonderful reviews. It is funny to think that just a couple of years ago Allan started freelancing on his own and now his name is fairly well known in the tech community.

I love you Allan and am so proud of you.

Boo at the Zoo

We took the kids to Boo at the Zoo in Birmingham. Jimmy absolutely loved trick-or-treating. He has it down pat and is ready for Halloween. I'm glad we went when it was still daylight, because I think the train ride would have been a little too scary for Jimmy. Before we took off on the train he was freaking out about a huge spider that was hanging right next to our seat. Jimmy has recently gotten into Star Wars thanks to Allan, so he was super excited to see Star Troopers and wanted a picture with every single one.
