Boys just wanna have fun

igloo wall comes tumbling down

photo op outside Crockers, they must not have teenagers in their neighborhood that crash snowmen.

Good gift givers

Trav picked this out for Jude for Christmas, was a total hit, he is such a good gift giver, I am totally lacking in this area.

White Christmas

Christmas attitude

Monroe got these glasses from Santa in her stocking and hasn't taken them off since!

this ones for you Jess I know how much you like boys in skulls

better not pout

Addie & Charlie

It had been a whole year too long since we have seen our niece and nephew traveling in from Nashville.

So fun giving this little sassy girl a manicure and updo

don't you love those dark brown eyes and such a little poser for the camera, unlike most one year olds.

Twas the night before Christmas

and my kids were wild, not sure what version they were reading, didn't remember it being that funny, think Trav was making up his own story.

Oh the weather outside is frightful...

we couldn't make it down Trav's parents gravel driveway to the farm, so we made our own path through the pasture, FUN AND CRAZY!

good thing I opened my "snowstorm" boots Christmas morning.

Babes in Toyland

this is Monroe's excited face, just a titch :), when she saw the big package she thought it was 3 american girl dolls, when she opened the faux american girl doll wardrobe she was thrilled! thanks Kenz!

Our dining rm table has turned into lego land, in 24h Xander has put together his Power Miners and loves them, thanks Henry!!!

Jude loves his "go-men" I love that they are constantly in hand, keeping his thumb out, they sleep with him in little baby doll cribs at night as well, thanks James!

We did our cousin exchange with the Millers before they headed out to Chi town, we will miss them and all our Lund-side cousins this Christmas:(

Santa Claus is coming to town...

this kid loves for me to take his picture or videotape him and then let him see it, cracks me up.


How come the kid I breastfed the longest, almost 17 months, turns out to be the one with asthma?

While we were out...

The dates were changed for Xander's piano mall performance so Trav and I missed his very first!!
Thanks to Mason and ? for videotaping so we could relive the experience. Xander did fabulous for his 4 minutes of fame, I would have been super nervous, i think he was a little too as he quickly turns around after he is finished instead of taking a bow.

VEGAS weekend

(Family pic before concert) Started the trip off seeing Garth at the Wynn, WOW, he was so great, he dressed Vegas style in a blue hooded sweatshirt, ballcap and jeans. He brought out Ms.Yearwood for a couple songs, I seriously wanted to invite them over for dinner, seemed so down to earth and can sing a little bit too! Have to admit a lot of the performance I was rolling watching the Garth lover lady sitting next to Tia dance and sing her heart out, people watching in Vegas deserves its own post.


my moms cheetah legging and bold red highlights fit right in in Vegas

apparently some of us didn't get the instruction that we were supposed to be doing a dance move in this pic

Serendipity Date

We went with the French toast log, who uses log as a menu item, would definitely recommend despite the name.

Frozen hot chocolate for Jessie and Preston

trip inspired by my sisters 40th, she got some attention at the dueling piano bar, hope she didn't pee her pants, her nickname in highschool was Drip afterall.

saw this pic and thought i looked prego, NOPE!! that would be the one
underneath me, what will it be, a girl or boy?

fountain pics
Weekend highlights: spending time with my family, laughing to tears most of the time, people watching, garth, running on the strip with my dad and two of my sisters, more laughing.
lowlights: feeling like i had lung cancer with all the smoke, way too many boobs, wasting 15 dollars on the slot machine

sNOw School!

Kids headed to school today not to learn, but to hit the slopes, the dads seem to readily participate when it comes to sledding.

Wet Nurse?

Have I told you about how working the night shift can be pretty entertaining, I find myself so surprised what come out of my patients mouths and more surprised at myself at times.
So last night,
My Patient: So, do yall have any wet nurses here that could nurse my baby while I sleep?
Me (Smiling): Um, well, I could feed him a bottle while you sleep?

Do people really still do this? I feel like Im a pretty open person, but community nursing kind of freaks me out.

Shoe Toe Tango

Monroe has learned the first part of her dance routine and says her teacher says she needs to practice practice. We don't have the music yet, so she had Xander play some X-mas music for her, did I mention Im loving my rebel video too!

i think we will call her Timber

or Tipsy?
My sister blogged about tree naming and as much as I am into names, what a great opportunity. We got a really great tree this year the kids love playing hide and seek in the tree lot, I think more so than picking it out. Anyhow, just a few minor set backs, like when it tipped over, our tree stand needs to be replaced, I do believe. After Ms.Henry's help and about 18 magazines she is upright again.

oh my Crispness

i am so loving the ease and pics with my camera, I should have gotten this a LONG TIME AGO!!!

Big boy bed

after I found Jude sleeping standing up against the couch this weekend, I decided he should be able to sleep in a big bed.

8:30pm reading stories before bed

11:00pm butt in air, finally ASLEEP
