Well once again I am way behind posting anything but I have been pretty busy with Brody, who will be 3 tomorrow!!!!!, the yearbook (which I may never finish), My Master's degree (I only have 3 more semesters!!!!), teaching full time, doing a little house work, and just being me! Whew... that makes me tired again just thinking about it!
I am going to post a few pictures from Christmas. We had an incredible time this holiday season. I have told everyone that this was by far the BEST Christmas I have ever had. Brody was at a great age! He understood what was going on and keeps telling me that he's going to miss Ho Ho... He is so funny. I hope that every year is as good as this one was. We are going to have a party Saturday so I will have more pics then.

Yesterday Mom and I took Brody to the mall to see Santa. As you can tell from the picture he wouldn't sit on Santa's lap but he would let me sit beside him with Brody on my lap. Anyway, this year's Santa at West Town is awesome!!! He must of heard me talking to Brody and so he already knew his name. He then asked Brody what he wanted and he told Santa that he wanted a Dump Truck... Which is funny b/c he has about a trillion already but I guess he likes what he likes.

About a month or so before Halloween we got a costume magazine in the mail. I told Brody to pick out what he wanted to dress up like. He picked a Pirate. I don't think it would have been my first choice but I liked it much better than a vampire or something scary... I know that stuff will come soon enough with this little guy! So I decided that was a great idea. I didn't really like the costume in the book and so I started looking around the house to make him a costume myself. One day I was looking for ideas on the internet and came across this costume. I loved it. I talked myself out of buying it right away and decided I should look to see if I could get a better price. Over Fall Break, mom and I took Brody to Party City and they had it on SALE!!! She bought it and a sword for him. I have to say that even though it was a store bought costume, He looked absolutely adorable. He practiced saying ARGH, Matey for weeks and TRICK OR TREAT... When Saturday night finally got here, He had a BALL We only went to 5 places but he got enough candy to last for A LONG TIME!!! Ha
I can't wait until next year to do it again!

Well I can say that summer is officially over for our family. I can't believe it but its true. We had a great time. We didn't go on on actual vacation due to my masters classes but we did take a few day trips which were so much fun. I have to say that Tennessee does offer a lot of attractions that really don't cost that much. We went to the Lost Sea, which I had never been to before. Another day we went to the Museum of Appalachia, which I have to say that Brody absolutely loved. And believe it or not, I talked Adam into going with us to Dollywood! We had a blast and all Brody has talked about ever since is riding that carousel.I am taking him back on Saturday with Brooke and Lexi. I am really looking forward to it!
Carrie Helle took our pictures this summer and they turned out Wonderful! The hardest part is picking out my favorites. Let me know what you think!
As for Brody, he is changing and growing so much everyday.
It seems like we can't keep him in clothes or shoes!
He is really a funny kid too.
He will play Adam and I against each other already.(which we are learning to handle)
He is doing really well with the potty training. (as long as he has on underwear, and #2 is taking a little more work... but we are getting there)
He loves sweet stuff and still wants chocolate milk every time he gets something to drink, of course we have to say no sometimes!
Well I guess that's all for now, I will do better updating from now on!

I am so sorry for not posting since April. When I looked at that I really couldn't believe it. We have been so busy lately that I haven't even wanted to get on the computer, forget sitting down to post. Here is a rundown of what's been going on with us.
1. The yearbooks came and I think for the most part, they were a success. Of course there were a few gliches but I think it was pretty good.
2. The school year ended, or did it just begin? No teaching is over and now I am off to my new project which has been consuming so much of my time- Going back to school! I am now going back to get my master's degree in Library Science. It's been going really pretty good so far and Amanda is doing this with me (thank God!) We have a (awful) class on Thursday nights and just finished one that met Friday 4-9/ Saturday 8-6. Thank goodness our professor was really laid back so he didn't ever make us stay the whole time. This was just for three weeks and boy am I glad!!!
3. Brody.... well where do I begin. He is so funny; rotten but funny. He is still really into tractors, big trucks, dozers, backhoes, trackhoes, etc.... He has also gotten really good at riding his hot wheels four wheeler. It is so funny to watch him on that thing. It didn't take him long to know exactly how to get it where he wanted. We have been spending a lot of time outside too. We got him a little pool for the back yard and he loves it! He would spend all day out there if I would let him. He is a late sleeper. Most days he sleeps until at least 9:30. But he is also one who wants to stay up really late so we are really working on that.
His new favorite shows are Mister Rogers neighborhood and Jack's big music show. He will stop what ever he is doing when those are on and watch every second. He still loves chocolate milk more than any other thing in the world but Ice cream is probably a close second. I told him that mommy and daddy were going to have to buy stock in Mayfield's if he keeps this up very long. Well I won't promise to post again any time this week but I will try to do better! Sorry about no
pictures for now... i couldn't get them to upload
