Thanksgiving Turkey Leg!

Only a grandmother would let her Grandson have a turkey leg while she is wearing a white shirt. We had thanksgiving lunch at The McMinn's it was so nice and relaxing Stone got to run in Grandaddy's shop it is the best floor around and believe it or not he did not go close to all of those motorcycles. Great Gramp's and Stone were checking out all those dogs they are so
funny. When we got home Stone was so sleepy he got in Mommy's bed to watch a movie and fell asleep before I could turn it on. Stone also got his very first Christmas ornaments from his Meme and his Great Gram they are the only ornaments on our tree but I will fill it up tomorrow.

Who are you calling a turkey!

I think when we are children we think of holidays as spending time with our crazy family. Then the older we get we realize they aren't as crazy as we once thought they were. Then we become adults and we realize they are really pretty fun and smart and we end up respecting them more and more for setting good examples and for touching our lives for all of those years even when we thought they were crazy. This Thanksgiving I am thankful for my crazy family who I love so much to be around and spend time with I am so thankful we got to spend the night at the ranch. I am also so very thankful for Stone we worked really hard to have him and he is the best thing that ever happened to us. Greg asked me if I had to tell someone how much I loved Stone what would you say. I can't no words can describe the way I feel for him.

8 Months Old!

Time is going so fast I know I say that every month but it really is. I love every minute with Stone. This week we have gone from 4 bottles a day to 3 bottles a day. It is more work for mommy but I think it is a good thing. Stone is trying new foods he loves real sweet potatoes and so do I with lots of brown sugar and cinnamon just like my Papa use to make for me. Now I make them for every holiday I took over that dish after he passed away in Dec. 2001.

November 16, 2008

Today is always a special day we went to church then met up with Gigi Papa G, Kaitlyn & Kaycee for lunch at Lytle. Today was Gigi's B-day we had a really good time and Stone sat in a high chair for the first time and he did really good. Then we went to see Gram, Gramps and Meme for cupcakes it is also Gram's B-day. So we played and Stone took a nap and then we went home to clean house. The funny thing about our families is no one has a birthday or Anniv. in a month that they don't share it with another person so here are our crazy list of fact.
Nov. 16th Our 6th Anniv. Gigi's B-day Gram's B-day. Our friends from Vegas The Fischella's Anniv. also.
March 15 Brad's B-day
March 19th Stone's B-day & Gramps b-day
May 14 Melanie's B-day 19th My b-day.
June 13th Kaitlyn's B-day My parents Anniv.
July is nuts 19th Greg's 20 Clydes 29th KC 30th Papa G Birthday crazy.
So we have lots of fun stuff going on and we had a really good weekend. This is the first year Greg and I did not exchange gifts and for me that is a big deal I love to give gifts and plan it out but we decided that Stone was our gift to each other and that is all we needed. Plus we did shop all weekend so we got way more than we needed.

Wild weekend.

We went to Austin on Friday Greg had a doctors apt. so we decided to stay the night and shop. So we went to the Round Rock and spent like 4 hours in IKEA this is stone in a bunch of beavers he did not like it at all. We had a really good time until we got to the Marriott and we all slept in a queen size bed good thing daddy doesn't move in his sleep.

Grandaddy Clyde!

This week Oleta McMinn found an old outfit that was Clydes when he was less that a year old so we put Stone in it to see what he looked like it. Remember this outfit is over 50 years old!!!! I wish I had a picture of Clyde in this outfit I will see if I can't find one.

Playing with Papa G!

Everyday I get to work and Papa G takes Stone straight out of the car so they can go play. Earlier this week I turn around and Stone is in a giant box on a " pretend sleigh ride".
