A new nickname!

Ok, so nothing much has been going on at our household lately. (With the exception of Joe working hard at moving my laundry room upstairs to prepare for a new bathroom in the basement.)
*insert ecstatic grin here*

As you know, Peytie is 4 yrs old now (going on 14!) and she is really growing by leaps & bounds. And boy is she ever charasmatic! A hoot, sometimes I tell ya'! Hence the following story:

Tonight, while she was having one of her 4 yr old... 'moments' {for lack of a better term}, I told her instead of calling her Peytie, I was giving her the nickname of 'Pouty'. It was quite fitting, as I'm sure you all can imagine. Anyway, she immediately said "No!" So, as I was hollering in to her dad to tell him of her new nickname, she said "Mommy, that's not a nice name." I agreed & then asked her what name she thought we should call her. Her response was, "How 'bout something nice... I KNOW! You could call me Gramma 'Laine! 'Cause she's NICE & I like her!" And of course, both mommy & daddy agreed!
Ha Ha! Can ya' tell who her favorite next door neighbor is? ;o) I guess this is a 'shout-out' to our 'favorite Gramma 'Laine!' We sure love you & don't (and wouldn't want to) know what life would be like around here, without you!

So, that's all for now... 'til next time...

Prom 2009!

This past weekend, we attended the W/P promenade. As you all know, our niece Tori is a Jr. this year. **sniff, sniff** She was absolutely STUNNING! (Her boyfriend Dan, cleaned up pretty well, too! ;o) We took a few pics before they left for the promenade.


Tori Rae & Peyton "Cheeser" Elisabeth


Tawyer & Sawyer
(as Dave so cleverly nicknamed them!)



Pleasing her dorky aunts & uncles, by posing like a goon. LOL! Such a good sport she is! ;o)



Not sure what was so funny here, but I thought it was quite the 'candid' shot.




I suppose your knee brace would work as a garter...? LOL! ;o)



The girls were pretty tired on the way up to the promenade. (It started at 8:30 our time, so it was most def their bedtime!) Here's Peytie, talkin' to her sister during the ride.


Sheesh, mom! Why ya' gotta' flash that thing?!


Ok, so unfortunately we got to the promenade a little late so Tori & Dan had already taken the 'walk'. (Still sorry about that Tor.) Anyway, the gym has extremely bad lighting anyway. (Which is why I made this black & white.) Such a good looking couple, no?



We went down to check out the decorations for the dance. They did a great job!



Christina & Courtney McGinnis. Lookin' 'gorge' girls!


Kelsi McCorkle & boyfriend Ryan. I just LOVED the color of her dress!

What?! 5 months old already?!?!

It's been 5 months since Miss Sawyer joined our family & we can hardly believe it!
She's growing WAY too fast. She started rolling over about a month ago & just started on some baby food. Sweet 'taters are her fav! (they were her sissy's fav too.) And boy does she like to talk?! She is such a 'chatterbox!!' She just gabs & gabs ALL day long... (hmmm - again, much like sissy! =) Her daddy has actually given her the nickname "Sawyer Jane Verbal." And what's even cuter - when she gets the giggles while watching/playing with Peytie. They are SO cute when they play together! Peytie's always doing something silly & when she starts laughing, then Sawyer chimes in. It's cuteness on a cracker, I tell ya'. (The video I posted a couple weeks ago proves that I guess. If you haven't seen it, scroll down & check it out! It's sure to bring ya' a chuckle or two.)

Well, here are several pics. (I know, they're pretty much the same shot over & over - she was just being so darn cute that day! And I don't know what it is with me & overalls on my girls - but I just LOVE 'em!)




Before bathtime...




Wearing big sister's cowgirl hat. She LOVES it!
