Brayden with the jingle bells
Daddy & B
Mommy & B

Ice cream at his Christmas party

His class
Grace, his little buddy, they have become really close

Brayden with his sweet teachers, Ms. Tonya and Ms. Betty

Brayden!!! Today, was Brayden first ever Christmas program, and we were so excited to see our little boy on stage. To our surprise, our very hyper, all over the place little boy was shy (stage fright to be exact) and just stood there on stage during the singing. Poor boy, as his mom, I just wanted to run up there and get him. I remember hating the lime light when I was young and so painfully shy at performances. But he was still so cute in his shyness. He did mange to jingle the bells when he first got on stage, but went down hill when he finally spotted Mommy and Daddy. So the pic was not so great, but got some good ones at the Christmas party afterwards. We also got his semester report card today, and the teacher made a note that Brayden, yes our B-boy, is shy, but that makes for a great listener at school *sigh of relief*, and apparently a ladies man (yes, he has already tried to kiss a girl, eekkk).

Fish, Fish, & Oh, MORE Fish

One of the fish that Wally caught

All of the fish the men caught on their adventure
My freezer now with the fish, it's hard to tell but it goes all the way back

Wally last weekend rugged it and went deep sea fishing for 5 days, doesn't sound so bad, actually kinda fun, until he told me, it was driving down to the Texas coast (8-9 hour drive), then 3 days out at see fishing, your food for those 3 days were whatever would fit in a cooler, and sleeping in a small bunk. Surprisingly, Wally had a great time, and will do it again next year, and next year I will be more prepared for what he brings home. I was not told he would also be bring fish home, so Monday on his way back home, I received a text to make room in the freezer for almost 80 lbs. of fish.....WHAT?! I barely had room to begin with, but I managed to clear out a shelf. Fish, anyone...please?

I've Been Tagged

I've been tagged by my sis to do the following: 1. Choose the 4th picture folder on my computer 2. Choose the 4th picture 3. Explain the picture 4. Tag 4 people to do the same.

In this picture I was 7 months pregnant with lil' Alexander, taking my monthly belly shot. Awww, the memories, and now that little stinker is 1 & 1/2 years old.

Only In Texas...

Will you have a tornado siren going off at 11 p.m. one night in December, and freezing temps the next day. Yes, we had some bad thunderstorm come through last night, woke Brayden up crying, so brought him back to bed with us. I turned on the tv just to make sure we were ok and no warnings were posted (ever since last spring and having the siren go off 3 times, thunderstorms, especially at night makes me nervous, and last night solidified that feeling). Nothing on tv, just a strong storm passing through, so I cuddled under the covers with my little boy and hubby. Just as I was almost asleep and finally able to tune out the heavy breathing from my 3 year old, the sirens go off. What in the world?! Great! Our go-to closet for times like these is now my hide away stash for the boys gifts. Wally turned on the tv and I went to the window to look for this tornado, and the weather man said it was in Allen where the are seeing rotation. So in the clear, and never had to wake Alexander who slept through the whole ordeal, and the boys never had to see their toys being thrown out of the closet to get us to safety. Again, just gotta love Texas weather.

I will post more, just been super busy with holiday stuff and orders.
