New babies!

I'm a little behind on posting about the new members in my extended family.

First baby Jade Lutz was born to my little brother Chad and Kammi Lutz on Dec. 15, 2008 in Az.

Cute itty bitty little girl.. I can't wait to meet her. Someday I'll remember the stats but for now, here's a picture when she was born.

Then on January 14th, my youngest sister Peggy and her husband Dwight welcomed their first also. They named him Jonah Allen Renshaw and he weighed in at 8lb9oz.

These babies are just too yummy and hopefully soon I'll be able to nibble on each one!!


Yesterday Reese was complaining about his teeth hurting at school so that prompted me to get in gear and get them to the dentist. So I called on my way to piano lessons yesterday and got them an appt for this morning at 8:30. It was nice because they were able to get both kids in at the same time. Rielly was so excited- this being her first appt and all. Reese always was great at his appts and Rielly really paid attention to that. The wait wasn't terrible and at the pediatric dentist, they have so much to entertain the kids that they had fun. Both kids did awesome! No complaining or anything and did everything they were asked to! This is what gets me.. I will admit I'm not so good with Riellys teeth. A lot of times, I leave it to her to do it which is bad since she's still little. But guess what?? Not one cavity or decay or anything (just like her daddy)!!! What a relief!!!
Reese was another story:( He is much better at keeping up on brushing and would you believe he has a mouthful of problems!!! He has to have 3crowns I think and a few fillings. I don't get it. He totally has my teeth! So out of pocket, it's going to cost close to $650 for teeth that will have fallen out in a few yrs anyways. Poor kid. But it's not for the lack of trying- he just has my expensive dental curse. I wonder how many cars we'll be buying for these people by the time all his baby teeth come out? I know myself, I put my dentists children through college!
I am just proud of my kids-- I am so glad they don't freak out with the dentist. They're tough cookies that's for sure!

Picture a Christmas...

Literally.. I'll share our Christmas with you through pictures!!

We kicked off our festivities with a Christmas play put on by Riellys preschool. She was an angel OF COURSE!! It seriously was sooooo cute!!!!

Doesn't she look the part?

So this makes me an angelic mommy right?

Christmas this yr we spent it with my brother Jeremy and his family in Tennessee outside of Memphis. It rained and rained and RAINED so finally when the sun came out on Christmas Eve, we were alllll over that!!!

Jeremy had a party with his friends on Christmas Eve... here we are hanging out. Reese was off flirting with some little gal he met.

And there's nothing like a new pair of PJ's on Christmas eve!!!

It was real nice to also spend Christmas with my mom who flew in to Tennessee!

Reese got some new PJ's as well (Riellys were pictured in her bday post). His robe lights up!

The kids kept up with Santa watch.. I think at this point he was over Canada. But I can't remember.

And there's nothing like a good game of foosball Christmas morning. See how daddy towers over these kids?!!? Yeah he's kinda tall

Santa came!! Merry Christmas!!

And he brought scooters!!!

Oh Santa was good to me this yr!!! For those that know me, know my crazy obsession with Coach bags. I've been wanting one for many a yr!! This was a happy day!

Oh yes.. it's real and even the box is beautiful!!!

Band of Brothers series for Jon.. do you think he'll watch it???

Here it is again. Can't get too many pictures of this beautiful piece of work!

Hulk hands.. what were we thinking?!?!?!

It was a long and tiring morning.. we were exhausted!!

Riellys birthday falls after Christmas so the next day, we had a little party with grammy and the cousins for her bday!! Here is Rielly and her cousin Emma

Patton working on lighting those big 4 candles!!

Blowing out the candles! Seriously these were the biggest cupcakes EVER!!

To continue with the birthday festivities, before we headed back to GA, we made a stop at Chuck-E-Cheese with Jeremys family and grammy.

Rielly finally warmed up to the big ol rat!

Poor Rielly got a fat lip the day before from falling (that's nothing new with this little girl!). Here she is with gramma eating pizza!

Yeah you can't tell at all that these crazy boys are cousins can you?!?!? Here's Reese and Marshall!

And here starts the self portraits... me and Jon! say CHEEEESSSEEE

Yeah we must be related.. me and my big brother Jeremy.

And me and my mama.

And this was taken just before we had to say goodbye and head back home! Reese, Rielly, Grammy, me and the yummy baby Madelyn!!
Hope you enjoyed our little Picture a Christmas! Happy New Yrs everyone!!!
