Pics by Coco

Here are a few pics that CoCo(Codie) came and took Sunday night of the kids in their christmas outfits. It is so hard to get them all in one photo with all perfect smiles and poses, considering Mattson hates to have his picture taken with anyone but himself. So these are some of the best ones. Hope you enjoy.

See this sweet little boy with his Binky. Well I can say we no longer need it or have it. It is gone the Turkey bird came and got it. And he is not one bit jealous that his bubba has one and he does not.

I can not believe it was as easy as it was but is was just that easy. Mattson has always taken a binky from day one. He has been attached to it or should I say it was attached to him. Anyway last Wed. night he went to spend the night with grad-dad (Phillip) and he never lets him have his binky, when he is with him. So he went all night with out and half the next day without it. He never asked for it from him b/c he knows he would have not let him have it. So anyway we just kept not giving to him, we just simply said you are a big boy now and we no longer have a binky. He did however throw one fit or two or actually three. But for the most part it was not as bad as I thought it would be.

This is just one step closer of him growing up and it breaks my heart but it is also one less thing I have to pack or not worry about packing when we go somewhere. I am so happy that is over and now we will have a great Christmas since we got the binky out of the way.

New Job!

Ok, I have been waiting so long to post this. Matt officially has a new job with CSX (Railroad company). We are so very excited. 84 lumber has been hit really hard by the economy, so it was time to go. He will be leaving this Sunday for training in Atlanta for 6 weeks. Yes, he will be gone for Thanksgiving and maybe for Christmas, we are not sure how all of this will play out. Please be in prayer for him and us, he has lots of training to learn and tests to take. From my understanding we will only be able to go visit him on Sundays. He will be in class the other days. This is going to be really hard for Mattson he is such a Daddy's boy. I pray he adjusts well. Matt will have to travel alot the first year but hopefully it will be a good job for him and for our family. I will keep you posted with any details. Please be in prayer for us.

Two Blogs In One Day!!

I have a whole in my heart. I just watched John McCain's concession speech, and I just cried. I am so broken hearted for him. He has such a love our country and it's people. He has served this country and it's people in ways we can not even begin to fathom. I can only hope that we learn something from him, tonight if you watched his speech you can see how much he cares about America and how he has served her with great honor. If only everyone cared about the country as much as him. I am so greatful for all he has done and will continue to do. Thank you for your service and to all that have served.

God Bless America

It's Almost Over!!!!!!!!!

Well, have never been so happy to see a day end. I am glad it is over, I am sick of hearing anything to do with this election. But I do have to say I love history and no matter who wins we will see history be made. As many of you know I voted for John McCain/Sarah Palin. I have to say I am proud of my vote, win or lose. And you should be too, even if you do not agree with me. I am proud to say I support someone who has fought for the very freedom that I live under. He has given his all for his, mine, and your country. He may have not done what is right all the time, but I believe that he has put forth his all in every decision he has made for this country. I believe he is a man who loves this country and it's people and he will fight for what is right for it and us. I believe that he does have everyone's best interest at heart rich, poor, and middle class. I believe that he fight's also for those less fortune in third world countries and thier rights to be free and he will not falter in his decisions for our military. I believe he is as logical and practical about where this country is going and what can be achived in a presidency, without changing the country to something that it's fore-fathers never intended it to be. I believe he loves this country as much as any-one and if he does not win he has already given a life time of service to this great country we live in, and to him I am greatful for that.

I can only pray that GOD'S WILL, will be done, who ever wins. I will say this is just my opinion. It is not meant to offend anyone, I do not hate Obama nor is this post meant to be a hate Obama, I just don't agree with him. That is what makes this country so great, we can agree to disagree. And everyone has the right to make thier own decisions based on their beliefs. That it what is so great about Democracy.

Go a Night-Night

So, I should be asleep right now but I can not sleep this time change has got me all messed up. Everyone else is asleep so what else to do, Blog. It has been a week or two since the last one. So I will tell a little about my weekend. We went trick or treating Friday night. Mattson was supposed to be a Lion but screamed his way out of that costume so we had to settle for being a Cowboy. We already had the wranglers, boots, and hat they were birthday gifts from who other than the great Coco(Cody) and uncle Ryan. Go figure. Payson was also a Cowboy b/c well we had another hat and jeans so why not. Anna was a 80's rocker so totally cute. Maybe better luck next year with dressing up. And of course I can not go with saying ROLL TIDE we are not ranked No 1 in the counrty. Sorry Auburn fans you had your turn now it is OURS. I should go now Payson will be getting up in the next couple of hours. Any one want a 8 month old who still get up in the middle of the night!!! J/K. I will post pics later of the kids dressed up. In the words of Mattson, I go a Night-Night.......

On Sunday we went to the Old Baker Farm. I wanted to share some of our photos with you. I was so excited about going and getting to take some really good pics of all the kids together. I had there shirts made alike for the pics, put them all in jeans, I was ready. If only I had for seen Mattson's terrible two's coming out. He would not take a pic with Anna and Payson. The one I have of all three of them together, Mattson is crying. And the only reason I got that shot is b/c I made him sit there and take a pic. So much for my perfect pic of my children at the pumpkin patch. It never works out the way you have planned in your mind. However I did get some other good pics of the kids. I think the only time he was not crying was when he was picking out his pumk-pumk. He was so cute when found the one he wanted he did not put it down. He carried it around the whole pumpkin patch. So maybe next year I will get a better photo of the three of them. For now here is some of what I have.....

Binks and Blanks

I took these pics Sunday after church. I had the camera with us and just thought that the boys looked cute just sitting there. When I loaded them on to my computer I noticed that each one of them had a picture with their bink (pacifier) and blank (blanket). Of course I thought is was sweet, so I thought I would share. My little boys love thier binks and blanks. But we will not have to many more pics with binks b/c Ho,Ho,(santa) is coming to get them. We have been telling Mattson in order for Ho,Ho to leave him toys, he must leave all of his binks for Ho,Ho to take to another boy. It might be a horrible christmas eve night!! Wish us luck....

Mattson and the Phone

So Mattson loves the phone. He calls me every day at work, our conversation consist of "Hi Mama, Hi Mattson I go bye-bye in Daddy's big truck? Yes, Mattson when Daddy's gets home, Hi Mama again, Mama miss me too. Bye-Bye Mama". Everything revolves around Daddy when it comes to him. Who said boys love their Mama's. So now when I am on the phone with someone, he wants to talk and usually it is with Nanna(my mother). So here are some pics of his conversation this week with his Nanna.

Long Time No BLOG.......

I guess I am not as good at blogging as I intended to be, I looked at all these blogs and thought what fun it would be and then I posted one blog and no more until now. We had a busy weekend with Anna, Mattson, & Payson. Sat Anna had a football game at Vincent it was bittersweet. Anna's team ended up winning, so that was good for her, but it is hard for us because we know some of the coaches for Vincent. We watched the Alabama game Sat. night over at Matt's family we did not get home unitl late so the boys were very tired. And on top of all of that Payson is teething. Just thought I would share some of our weekend highlights and some of the pictures. Rooll Tide!!! As Mattson would say.

Surprizes from Above

Last Sunday was Payson's dedication, at Church. As always when I am in front of a crowd I was totally nervous. But everything went very smooth. After it was over and Pastor Jason was preaching I began to think back about when I found out I was pregnant with Payson. It was the day before Mattson turned 1 years old. I was in total shock, not only was I not trying to get pregnant but I was on birth control. I remember seeing the ultra-sound and there was not even a heartbeat yet, just a black dot. I thought how could this of happened. Of course I cried and called my husband and as men always do he said "everything is going to be fine, it not a big deal". I said "no its not a big deal, I am just going to have a baby before my other baby is even 2 years old". I was worried I would not be able to be the mother I needed to be to Anna, Mattson or the new baby. I thought how could I possibly manage a 9 year old, a 2 year old, and a new born. As I look back at what a total surprise Payson was nothing could be any better. Anna and Mattson adore him ( wished they loved each other as much as they love Payson). I think how could He have not of happened. God new Payson before I ever saw that black dot in my womb. He new the plans for his life and the person he is and will become. He knew the blessing he would be to us and what joy he would bring to our family. 9/
