Coby's Christmas with Payton

So - Friday - I picked Coby AND Payton up from daycare. (this was a first for us!) I was a little worried about their "energy" level - but honestly they were AWESOME!!! Note: pajamas are on because it was pajama day at school.We take Coby to the "santa" party every year. This year we brought Payton along with us....after our high energy dinner at McDonalds!
Payton had NO problem telling Santa everything she wanted for Christmas!
Coby was THRILLED with what Santa had brought him! Dinosaur feet slippers and a dinosaur toy!
The little love-birds giving Santa hugs before he headed back to the NorthPole!

It's Christmas time!! Whhooohhhoooo! A couple weeks ago - my mom made me these peanut M&M cookies that I can NOT say "no" too! They are my most favorite EVER and I will NEVER be able to figure out how to make them! I don't know what all the white stuff is around them, other than PURE heaven!! LOL! I wish I could share just ONE with all my bloggy friends....Last Friday night Santa came to daycare to visit all the kiddos! Coby and Payton walked up to him holding hands and Santa said "are you brother and sister?" Payton piped RIGHT up and said "NO! He's my boyfriend!" HA!!! They crack me up!! These 2 have been in daycare together since they were 8 weeks old - they are the best of friends. I tease Payton's mom about my daughter-in-law! LOL!
So - yesterday was an adventure for Cory.....Coby had an accident at daycare (during naptime)and daycare had NO extra clothes for Coby. So Cory had to run to Target and get Coby all new clothes, from socks to underwear to pants and shirts. (I left this job up to Cory because his job is less than a mile from Coby's daycare and school!) Note: Cory has NEVER bought Coby clothes! Don't get me wrong...he's a great dad - this is just something he has never had to do! Coby's outfit was QUITE interesting.....I will leave it at that! My son who wears a size 5 - had on navy blue windpants size 6/7 a turquoise blue t-shirt and red/green christmas socks. ha!!!! Anyway - he made it through the day without getting laughed at and mom has now taken 2 extra outfits to daycare! :)
I took Dylan Christmas shopping last night. He is 16 - and for many years has liked getting family/friends Christmas gifts JUST FROM HIM! He did really good and budgeted really well. Then he had to buy jewlery for his dumb girlfriend! UGH! Girls are dumb....and don't need to date my son! (yeah, a little bitter!) Why do girls always have to suck up all your money!?!?!
I'm WAY in the Christmas spirit and LOVE everything about Christmas! Hope everyone is ready.....it's just around the corner!

Secret Santa

Georgie over at decisionally challeneged hosted (once again) a
Secret Santa Soiree!
Doing it a little different this year - but I LOVE it!!!
I put my secret santa gift in the mail yesterday - so I thought I better do my post before my person recieves it!
First on the list - i LOVE this kitchen towel and oven mit! This is something I never splurge on for myself - so I decided it would be a good gift!

This little coffee mug was too adorable! It says you can decorate it yourself - but I just love the little penguins already on it.And 2 of my all time favorite things - so I HAD to share those.....First up - antibacterial handsoap from Bath and Body - this one is my FAVORITE...And next....Beauty Rush lip gloss from Victoria Secret. THE BEST!!!! I could not breathe without this stuff! My "person" LOVES snickers - so had to throw some of those in for her.....

And my "person" also loves to read. I, personally, have not read the Hunger Games yet, but have a few friends who have, as well as my teenager! It IS on my "to read" list, so I'm hoping it's a GREAT Christmas gift!
I had fun doing my shopping this year and I hope this makes a GREAT gift for someone special! :)
Thanks for hosting such a fun secret santa, Georgie!!

A little Random & a few pics

Here are a few of the pics taken of my boys last month-this is one of my favorites... Coby - such a little cheeser.
Another favorite....
This was one of those "quick action" ones - but I'm loving it!!! Coby ADORES his big brother, Dylan!
Christmas decorations are all up at home - but did I take any pics yet? No! Well, just one, I posted on FB!
Christmas shopping - almost COMPLETELY done!! YEA!!! I still have 3 big gifts to get (just waiting on another payday!) UGH!!! I don't like being in the "poor people's club!"
I got MOST of my shopping done on black friday! Yep- set my alarm for 1:45am and was AT walmart by 2:30am! GO ME!!! Stood in line for a little over 2 hours to get the tv i wanted - but also got some other awesome deals!
Then.....I had a wreck! It wasn't bad - just bad enough to make my car look like crap and give me more crap to worry about! UGH!!! Now going to auto body shops and fretting about the insurance deductible I'm going to have to pay RIGHT HERE AT CHRISTMAS TIME!!!
4 days off of work last week was DA BOMB!!! I got a lot accomplished! Ready for 4 more days off! LOL!
Last weekend for rifle season - hoping I get a decent deer this weekend! Wish me luck!

Coby had an entire LIST of what he was going to tell Santa he wanted this year! As SOON as he got on Santa's lap - he forgot! It's like he couldn't even SPEAK! I had to remind him....dinosuars!!!
Anyway - I think this santa pic is so cute - considering we were at Bass Pro! Check out Coby's hand - it's like he's holding a gun! Have a great Thanksgiving!!!

It's Time To Start Thinking Christmas Cards - and Shutterfly!

I am SO excited about ordering Christmas cards this year! And this year I will be ordering from Shutterfly!
I love this card - I like the black, it just seems to make the pictures POP!This one has more "soft tones."
This one is adorable too! Again, Black - but really digging the "funky" colors! A little change to the "traditional" Christmas cards.

This one is my MOSTEST FAVORITEST ever!!!! I just adore the "santa belly" on the bottom! My plan is to get this one,put individual pics of my three boys and one pic of Cory and I together on it.
Shutterfly - has so many GREAT Christmas gift options! I'm ordering a couple different photo gifts from there as well. (Unfortunately, I can't go into detail about them because they WILL be Christmas gifts.) But I will be sure and post them after the Christmas holidays! I really recommend you checking out their website - their photo calendars are GREAT!!
Go to Shutterfly and see what great Christmas cards YOU can make for your family and friends!

Thanksgiving Time

My New Project

My mom and I went to the Affair of the Heart HUGE craft show in Oklahoma City a couple weeks ago. After seeing MANY necklaces that I ADORED - I decided I could possibly make my own! Sure, why not.....because I have LOTS of spare time! (NOT!)
My dear friend Becky - is heading to a Minnesota Vikings game this weekend, so the first necklace was actually made for HER, with her team colors!!
I want HONEST opinions here....what do you think!?

Girls Night Out - Miranda Lambert!

Last week we had girls night out and went to see Miranda Lambert! It would've been PERFECT except for the fact that we had some TOTAL "screamers" behind us! yes...I understand we were at a concert...and yes I understand people scream, but this was TOTALLY ridiculous!!! The next day I still could NOT hear out of my left ear, LITERALLY!!! And I'm not sure it's 100% back today, either!
ANYWAY - Miranda ALWAYS puts on a GREAT show! HIGH ENERGY!@! Look how cute she is with her pink guitar! Some of the sights we saw...check out this dudes dread locks......

And PINK HAIR, ona GUY!?!?! REALLY!?!?!

Our crew for the night!!! I had a GREAT time and I think the other girls did too! Trying to decide who we will go see next....

Wedding Cutie

Ok - I know, I know...I've been horrible at blogging. Life has been CRAZY busy lately!

He did such a GREAT job!
I just LOVE this smirk on his face! :)

Wildlife Expo 2010

For the past 4 or 5 years Oklahoma has put on a "wildlife expo." It's SO neat! Geared towards the kids (mostly) and the best part...everything is FREE!! We haven't been since Coby was a baby, so we decided to load up and make the 2 hour drive to let Coby have some fun!
I love these pics - Daddy trying to help Coby shoot the bow.Look at Coby's face! "oh no! is that ok?" LOL!

Daddy making sure Coby is doing it JUST right! If you look closely at Coby's face you can really see his look of concentration.
Coby even got to ride in a kayak ALL BY HIMSELF! He really enjoyed that!
It was a lot of fun! We got to try out some deer bacon! It was AWESOME! Buffalo chili! Also, awesome! So many exhibits- indoors AND outdoors!
They also had fishing for the kids, as well as bow fishing for the kids. But it was getting too late in the day, Coby was ready for lunch, and the line was SO long! We decided to skip that part this time.

Can't Get Over My Randomness...

The weather will be changing soon....so we've been trying to get ALL of the outside play time IN that we can get!
This is our newly adopted cat! He/she (whatever it is) just showed up at our house a couple weeks ago. Coby has named it Mr. Pettybones (off of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.)

And with the weather changing soon....that means deer season is RIGHT around the corner! Here's 3 of the 4 males in my household practicing shooting with their bows! Yep...it will be here before we know it!
SO - this past saturday night Cory and I went out!!! ALONE!!! OMG! (I know - I was totally excited too!) Anyway - i just HAPPENED to have my camera in my car and was like "wait.....let's take our picture!" hehe!! So here we are.....very happy!!!

It's My Random Day.....

A couple weeks ago - Cory and I decided to take Coby to Branson for a day trip. And of course....how could we NOT stop at Bass Pro! HELLO!?!?!? I have a picture of Coby with this bear when he was about a year old...I can't wait to dig it out and compare them.Coby and Daddy with ANOTHER bear!!!
Coby LOVED driving his own go-cart! If you look closely enough - please notice: One foot on the gas and one on the brake.....at ALL times!

Coby and Daddy driving water bumper boats! Coby thought it was HILARIOUS to shoot me with the watergun!

Ok - and now for a little randomness:
Update on Coby's leg! (I meant to do this a LOT sooner!) He is doing FINE now....like nothing ever happened! He went almost 48 hours without walking. His pediatrician took x-rays, had blood work done, etc. The radiologist said "developmental changes." (Which I'm taking as growing pains.) And all blood work came back normal! Thank God! I really hope this is not a re-occuring thing!
Pre-K is STILL wearing Coby out!!! He was SOO excited when I told him this morning "we get to sleep in tomorrow!" How sad is that for a 4 year old to be excited about sleeping in!?
So....Dylan's sophomore year....I completely forgot about class rings!! OH MY!! These things are NOT cheap!!! I told him - I will order one, but if I see a girl wearing it I'm going to BASH her head in! He told me to be pre-pared to bash a lot of heads in then! REALLY!?
So....since I'm loving zumba class so much - I decided to order the one off of the informercial! I tried it for the first time last night! It is DEFINIETLY a workout, HOWEVER....I'm not thrilled with the music choices on it! That's part of what I like about the class - a little Usher....a little Beyonce.....you know?! A little GET YOUR BOOTY shakin music?!?!?
Have a GREAT Friday everyone! And a GREAT weekend!!!!
