Picking Pecans

Courtney edited this picture for me. I think she did a great job. It looks like she is going to be another Melanie.:)

Proud Girl.

Good job Court.
The first thing Courtney made was this purse.

Courtney has been taking a sewing class for a couple of months. I think she is doing pretty good. She just finished a blanket and it is so pretty.
Love you Courtney, keep up the good work.

Putting icing on the house.

We wish you a Merry Christmas


This is Brooke's preschool program. The ages are 2, 3, and 4. You can tell the 2 year olds. LOL

Brooke is finally enjoying baby dolls. She started really loving them about 2 months ago. I ask her what she wanted for Christmas and she told me baby dolls with hair, little pony, and pet shop.
I ask her again one day what she wanted and she said, " Mom, I done told you. Just three things. Those dolls, pet shop, and little pony."
She is so funny. I am so thankful I got those things early. With Kevin's job still not steady we will not be doing as much for Christmas this year.
I think the girls understand though. I tried to tell them that Christmas is about much more than getting.
The girls started going through their toys and wanting to give them to people.
My girls always take good care of their toys. They are not rough on their toys. They went through some of their toys to give away and the toys looked new still.
Enjoy the pictures of Brooke and her dolly. She named this doll Katie Lin.


This is a stick figure of somebody walking on water. :0)

Brooke has been drawing stick figures for a couple of months now. She has also started writing her name and letters. Brooke wrote her first sentence the other day. She wrote I love you. I will have to take the picture and put it on here. Here is just a little art work from Brooke. I will try and add more later.

Kevin and I went out last night for our Anniversary. We had a nice time. We had planned on letting the girls spend the night with somebody and going off for a couple of days. With Kevin's hours getting cut we decided to wait and just go out to eat. The girls were still going to spend the night with somebody. Brooke would not stay. She cried and cried wanting me. We had to finally go get her because I could not stand knowing she was upset. When I picked her up she said, " I would stay with Grandma if you stay to mommy." LOL
I was like "I don't want to stay. I want to be with daddy tonight." She then tells me how much she missed me and that she wanted me and nobody else. Kevin wanted to know where he fit in the picture. Brooke informed him that she loved him and missed him, but she wanted her mommy.
I don't know if Brooke will ever stay with anybody. I have just got where I can leave her for several hours and she is o.k. I guess it is a good thing Kevin and I did not go off for a couple of days. Brooke would have been miserable and made everybody else that way.
Kevin and I had a nice date for a few hours anyway. It was so nice to be able to sit and talk without the children. I love them so much, and I would not trade them for anything, but I did enjoy a few hours of quite time. Normally they are both like a radio that plays all day. You turn them on in the morning and they go all day until they get in bed.
