Holiday Happenings



The kids did an excellent job singing a special birthdy song to Jesus.

Christmas at the Blevins' House where Santa left all kinds of toys for our good little girls!

Christmas with the Jordan family:

A much needed break from work and school was taken overnight to Grapevine to stay at the Gaylord and see the ICE! This really took it out of the girls. Brynn left in tears after becoming so frozen waiting in the line to go down the ice slide and Paisley was asleep in the backpack the minute we walked into the show! It was pretty cute...we had random people taking pictures of us because they thought it was just so precious.

We had Christmas at Ma and Pa's and got to visit with Flick...he is too cute!

The family took a trip to the North Pole on The Polar Express to see Santa!

Brynn had her very first gymnastics competition for the mini-team with Gymnastics Sports Center!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have so much to be Thankful for.

Going all the way back to Halloween I thought I would share a few pics of my little pumpkins!

Since You Saw Us Last...'s been awhile since my last post, so here is what you've missed!

1. Brynn is really loving school, she says she doesn't want to go but she plays school every minute that we are not there. She loves being the teacher and teaching lessons to her students at home! Brynn is now on the competition mini-team for gymnastics sports center. She tumbles and works on the bars every chance she can get. She has had such great improvement. It's fun to watch her learn new things each time we go to practice. Her first meet is coming up in December!

2. Mark's job on 635 is going really well, but we miss seeing him early in the morning when he is on the road. He is doing lots of running again and says he plans to run another half marathon in January! GO MARK!

3. Paisley just had her half birthday! Yes, my sweet baby girl is already 6 months old. She is eating lots of baby foods, rolling all over the room, sitting up alone, and trying her hardest to crawl. She has had 1 ear infection that messed up her sleeping pattern for a few weeks but seems to be back to normal. She gets a bath and a cereal bottle at about 7:30 and then is off to bed and usually sleeps until about 7:30 in the morning! SHE IS AMAZING!

4. As for me, I have stayed super busy with school work, taking Brynn to her practices, holding my sweet "P", and working on sewing projects like crazy. I wish I could just work on my crafty stuff all the time, it is so relaxing.

5. Halloween flew by and Thanksgiving is just a few days away. For Halloween Brynn wanted to be a witch, with a rather unusual twist. She had striped leggings, a tutu skirt, red sparkle shoes, and to top it off she decided that her face needed to be painted green...interesting. Paisley was Little Miss Piggy, which fits her perfectly. She loves to eat eat eat!

6. I finished "my two little turkeys" some turkey shirts that turned out precious. They looked so adorable together in all the fallen leaves outside.

I know we have done a 1000 things more but that wraps up our highlights and I will get some pictures posted hopefully over Thanksgiving holiday!

Back to School / Football Season

We have all adjusted well to going back to school! I have a class of 17 great kids, and Brynn has made some wonderful friends in her PreK class. Also, the really big adjustment has come with Mark's new job this week. It's in Dallas on 635 so he has quite a commute everyday, but it seems to be going smoothly. We just wish he wasn't so far away from us. I have to say, I got very spoiled to always having him 15 minutes away. The not so great news right now is: I am already home sick from school, Mark feels a sinus infection coming on, and we think Paisley may have a slight cold/allergies :( Brynn on the other hand is A OK! She has stayed super busy with school, gymnastics 2 times a week, and going to fun things like the Sherman Bearcat Cheer Clinic! She is ready for some Bearcat football! But most of all we are just really thankful my sweet momma has been here for us to help us adjust to new schedules, take care of us while we are sick, and run Brynn around to her gymnastics practices. We couldn't do it without her!

Summer Wrap Up

Summer seems to have just flown by all to quickly. I enjoyed every minute that I was able to spend with my precious baby girls. They are such a beautiful blessing. School is approaching way too fast and Brynn is thrilled. This will be her first year to go to public school. She will be attending Pre K at S&S Elementary and be in Mrs. McDonald's class! Sweet Paisley will have the best babysitter ever...her Mimi! We are thankful that this has worked out and that she is in good hands so that we may both go to work. So, to wrap it up, here are a few pictures from the rest of our summer adventures.
