I can't stand when my babies are sick
 Rainy 1st day of school, both boys love their teachers and are adjusting to our new schedule
 new boxing gloves &
 cows in the back yard!!! Yes they came in our tiny back gate ~Thank God Gregg was still home so he could corral them out. It has been a very interesting, very fast paced start to this school year.

 Max & Logan had a great time visiting the grandparents~this picture is Abigail driving Max around B-ville.
 Gregg and Max bought this memory stone, since my 2 beautiful trees didn't make it through last years hot summer they bought this to replace them. It is beautiful and I placed it where I planted Brie's tree. Max said they got this because it couldn't die...and it really means alot. Lyla was visiting and she helped me place sea shells all around :)

 this was my lil guys first taste of rice cereal and he absolutely loves it!!!
I love this picture my friend took on the 4th of July

 Lyla and Logan are some funny cousins. I am so grateful to get Lyla to visit during the summer~it is so funny to watch them... they kept me laughing all week
 Bryan's face cracks me up
Max got a NEW trombone this summer and today I dropped him off at Drum Camp~

 Love to see his passion for music~

I couldn't get Lyla a horse to ride but we did get to ride a pregnant donkey!!! She loves horses  so that is my goal for next year FIND A HORSE. This summer has been busy and wonderful..we miss Zach who is in summer school.

6 weeks

Bryan is now 6 weeks old!!!! My days are now filled with the wonderful AHHCOO sounds and smiles.... actual smiles when I pick him up. I also get these wonderful loving looks when I breastfeed~ makes a Momma so happy.

Trying to capture these moments on my camera phone are almost impossible. He would smile then click.... missed the shot! But my heart melts everytime he coos and smiles ~love this lil guy.

We took the boys to The Rattle Snake Roundup in Waurika, Ok this weekend. Don't you love how my preteen and his cousin Branson don't smile when I pull out the camera~ they are much too cool for that. Logan was thrilled to get a batman symbol painted on his face & there were lots of rides and wonderful fried food~ it was more like a carnaval then we expected. We did eat some Rattlesnake which I will never do again unless stuck out in nature with no food and happen to kill a snake for dinner.

We had so much fun.. Gregg and I rode the rides with the kids~ I haven't laughed that much in a while~ we will attend this round up next year for sure :)

Spring Break

This Spring Break we had tons of visitors ~Poppa,Grandma, Abigial and Kyra (the exchange student living with the McKee's~ Kyra is from Germany and we learned lots from her) More Pictures to come...waiting on Abigail to send them :)

We were also blessed to have my Mom come out for several days to help me with the boys. Zach also took some spring break time to come visit us as well :)
Love this picture~ Love looking at his red hair in the sunlight~

These 2 cousins are so silly~ I loved to hear all the laughter and running around I am back in baby land~ which include the sleepless nights (we are up every 2-3 hours), baby puke and breast milk covering my shirts. But despite the delirious state that I am in~I have fallen in LOVE and I can sit and stare are him for hours...

getting ready for Baby Bryan

We have set up his space in the master bedroom as I will be breast feeding I felt it was best to keep him close and instead of disrupting the big boys rooms he is set up in ours :) My friends who threw the shower made these B R Y A N letters and it was set up on the sign in table. So we thought it would be great above the crib~
We have tons of diapers, wipes, sooo many clothes, a beautiful bed and super cute jungle bedding set. I can't wait to post pictures of my shower but I am still waiting on my friend to edit the pictures. It was an amazing shower and we are soo ready for Bryan's arrival.

It snowed yesterday and when I looked outside I saw all these wonderful cardinals in our trees. There were more birds I couldn't get in the shot~ I counted 16 males and lots of females. It made me feel so peaceful and so happy. So far Bryan will be born C-section on March 6th~the day before my birthday!! Unless I go into labor before hand which is ok by me teehee~

either way what an amazing BIRTHDAY gift!!

munchkin hat for our new munchkin

I have been home for the past few weeks with health issues~ the Dr. is not realeasing me to go back to work~ Which is fine by me. I was in the hospital again last Thursday and I finally passed 1 of the 2 kidney stones that is in my bladder. It is definitely more difficult to be pregnant when you are older or at least it seems to be more difficult. This pregnancy seems so hard, I am so tired, been so sick but I am also sooo excited to meet our new guy. It seems we have had so much loss in the past few years this lil blessing has me excited and overjoyed I almost can't contain myself. So I spend the past few days sitting by a lovely fire and knitting this cute munchkin hat. It had been sooo long since I pulled out those knitting needles I actually had to pull up a video to help get me started~ Now I will spend my time planning for this huge baby shower my Best friend Missy is planning at the end of the month.
