He's on the Move....

video

This week McCool has started crawling all over the place. I'll just say that this boy can get whatever he wants. He usually will just go about 4 or 5 knees and then he sits. He is much happier also. He is enjoying throwing his toys and then fetching them. Entertains himself!! I have been busy this week watching him, making sure he doesn't hurt himself, pulling him out from under the chairs. He will throw his toys under the chairs and then try to get them. He loves that game. Here is a video of him on the move!!!!!

Lisa's Birthday party....

Tuesday we had lunch at Osaka for Lisa's birthday. It was YUMMY. Emma of course loved helping Le Lee open her gifts. We had a great time!!!! E and LeLee....
McCool and daddy....
the frame we gave her...didn't get pics of the other stuff....Sorry!!! Happy Birthday SIS!!!!!


My big BOY....

Monday when McCool woke up, he was not crying, but had his leg all the way through the crib. HE could not move. So, we put the bumper pad back in last night. (we had taken it out a while back because he was trying to sleep way to close to it and mommy did not like that) So, this morning when I go in his room, he was on his knees looking over the crib....scary....That prompted us to lower the mattress that night. This boy is growing, moving, eating, laughing, giving out kisses, and loving his toys. Had to take some pics of him peeking over. He is a mess!!!!

Trip to Mazzio's.....

Feb.18th, Emma's K-3 Pinelake class took a trip to Mazzio's. They learned how all the machines work in the back, how the Pasta is made, etc...Then, they made their own pizza and waited for it to bake. Emma did a great job. I tasted hers and it was soo good! She had a great time. I just don't know if we will ever be able to eat there without her wanting to go to the back and make her own!
Baker and E...they were being soo silly... E making her PIZZA....
Enjoying it....
Emma and her classmates talking. Thought this was soo cute...

American Idol....

Rich and I are hooked on American Idol. So far, so good. We are both pulling for Danny Gokey. He is wonderful. His wife died 4 weeks before the auditions. He has been so strong. He is 28 and the director of music at his church! Awesome person! Next week, Jasmine will be on there. She is from Starkville, MS. She is really good. We all need to vote for her as well!!! Just a little reality TV update from the Simpsons....

My mom came to babysit, so we could go enjoy a nice dinner. We went to Char and had a wonderful meal and then went shopping at the Reniassance... ready to go....
me and my sweet loves on Valentine's Day...
McCool's favorite new trick....

playing Dress Up with McCool...

Rich's mom gave me one of Rich's outfits when he was a little boy. I just love it. I was afraid that he would be too big before the season was right to wear it, so we had a little photo shoot. I think he looks just like his daddy in these pictures. Soo sweet...
This one looks just Rich when he was a baby. (just from all the pics that i have seen)

Play date with the Dyess family...

Thursday, our old neighbor, Heather and her 2 sweet girls came over to play. They lived behind us at our old house and we miss them so much. It was a beautiful day and the girls played outside for a while. Emma got upset because Sadie Leigh would not let her be her "mudder"-Emma's word for mother! E and Sadie Leigh-sweet girls....

Family....

Friday, Rich's parents came to stay with us. We enjoyed the day outside. It was beautiful, but windy. Emma loves to be outside and put things in a pile. And trust me, she knows exactly what is in each pile. Too funny. McCool just enjoys watching her. We had so much fun outside! Makes us ready for Spring! After playing outside, we met At. Susan and Uncle Michael for dinner. We ended the night with a little GUITAR HERO!!!! this is HOLLYWOOD....
