Making memories TWO at a time!

These are just a few of my latest projects. I have a few new ideas that I'll post as soon as they are completed. Some of these items are sold, and there are still some available...of course I can make custom orders too! They make great Christmas gifts! A lot of the wood I am using is "Katrina Wood." The trees that were blown down at my parents house during Katrina were made into different size boards to rebuild the 7 barns that my parents lost. I am using them for art and you can have a part of Mississippi history and unique art too!

The babies had a new toy to play with at Doc and Cheri's over Thanksgiving. Mahlon has somehow been bucked off a few times...haven't caught that on video yet. He sure does have fun though!!

Sara Beth is such a big girl now. She can get in her chair all by herself! We are so proud of her, but we can't really encourage her to do it because we are a so scared she'll fall! She is a climber!

Happy Thanksgiving! We had a busy Thanksgiving in Soso and a full house...6 adults, 2 16 month olds and 2 large indoor labs. There were toes and paws getting stepped on constantly...I did enjoy having 2 vaccum cleaners after every meal(maybe we need a dog???) We had a fabulous meal that Cheri cooked...I love a big Thanksgiving meal. The babies weren't too sure what to think of the turkey, but they loved all of "the fixins."

We took the babies to the dairy to pet the baby calves. We've been working on "mooing" and that is all they did puckered lips and all! Hopefully tomorrow we can give the babies a bottle and get some video!

We finished the night with lots of reading. The babies jumped from lap to lap so they could get in as much reading as possible.

Doc grew a new variety of turnips (Tokyo Hybrid) They are bigger than Mahlon and Sara Beth! They had fun playing with them, shredding the leaves and even tasting them uncooked! Sara Beth did eat some of Doc's mustard green at lunch today...something that most 16 month olds would never attempt!

A few of my art projects...actually it took 3 of us to get it all together. Wesley cut the wood, I designed/painted it, and my mom put it together. What a team we are! These will be for sale on Monday at our Holiday Happening or I can do custom orders.
This is a 12x12 square wood frame with a 4x6 cut out for a picture.
These are both stained cedar frames with 2 or 3 4x6 opening for pics.

I made this one out of fence board and added a little color...perfect for your patio or front porch to display your initial.

We celebrated Daddy Day's birthday a few days late. Sara Beth loved "helping" open his gifts...and she especially loved the bow!!

Sunday we had a few pictures taken for our Christmas cards. This is what i got with my camera after the photo shoot...I think the smiles were all gone by the time I got to take my pics.

Fun Bath Time

Mahlon has ALWAYS loved the water. He doesn't care if it gets in his eyes, up his nose, he splashes so much he empties half of the tub every night, and he has always loved laying down on his back in the tub. Well now Sara Beth has discovered "floating" on her back but, she is not a big fan of splashing and does not want water in her eyes...what a princess! Mahlon was laying down and giggling and splashing and I asked Sara Beth if she wanted to lay down too...this is what she did!!

If you ask her to lay down she sticks one ear in and scrunchies her nose and mouth...so cute!

I "helped" her lay down and she LOVED it! She didn't want to get out!
It is so much fun "teaching" the babies new things and watching how excited they get!! What a blessing!

Fall Festival

Sunday we had Fall Festival at our church...Madison Heights. Doc and Cheri came up to play and help chase babies! We had so much fun. We went horse back riding, jumped in a mini bounce house, went on a hay ride, ate cookies and cupcakes, watched daddy play flag football...whew what a busy day! They are at the best age! So much fun to play with. Not sure who was more worn out babies, parents or grandparents!

Watching daddy play flag football! He made a touchdown!

Eatin' a cookie in Cheri's lap!
On our second hayride...2 in one weekend!

We all got to ride a horse! Sara Beth loved it! She talked to the horse the whole time!! Precious! I just wish I could've understood what was coming out of her mouth!

Telling Doc all about the horse.

They loved the "mini" bounce house. Mahlon loved it when the "big" kids came in and bounced him around. Sara Beth has NO FEAR she is the one who started sliding down head first. They both did it over and over and over!
