Ladies Man!!

I just wanted to post a couple pics of my little "ladies man". Thanks to Deidra and Jessica for buying this cute onesis for him. I love this color on him and just thought he looked so cute, so I thought I would share! Hope you all enjoy!

Ha ha this is Funny! Tag Now I am it!!

So Anjee you got me. So the challenge; pick the 4th album on my computer, pick the 4th picture in the album, and write 4 things about it, then challenge 4 of my friends to do it! Well this is funny because the 4th album on my computer happens to be the "sample" album that comes on the computer. ha ha I thought that was funny so I am following the rules so here I go.

1. I didn't take this photo but, it sure is beautiful!

2. Reminds me of a white christmas back home!

3. Looks sooooo cold. Wonder how many deer are in that forest?!?!

4. WOnder where this photo was taken at? and by who?

So I challenge Wende Scholzen, Lynda Newman, Tammy Chisholm, and Julia Johnston

So I took McCallister to his first Nascar race this past Sunday! We really aren't big Nascar fans but, Chad got some tickets from a client and they were really good seats so we went for a little bit. I thought it would be an experience for him. He liked it but, he just said that it was too loud after a while. We stayed for a couple hours, we bought a couple things for my sister (who is a huge Nascar fan), sat in our seats for a while and watched the cars go round and round :P, then walked down closer to the track and watched for a bit, then headed out. The nice man next to us let Cal use his binoculars so he could get a better look at things. We were right by the pit so Cal liked to watch the cars pull off and get fixed! Those couple hours were enough for us. It was a fun experience for him but, let's face it, how many times can you watch the cars go around before you get tired of it. (or as Chad says how many times can you watch them make a left turn!) ha ha
We had a good time and we thank the man who gave us the tickets! I will post pictures soon!
GO #17!!!!!!!!! That's for you NE NE!!!!!!!!

Boy they sure do grow fast....

So my baby is getting so big so fast! He turned 5 months on the 28th of Oct. He is currently teething like crazy. His brother got his first tooth at around 6 and a half months so I am expecting his to come somewhere around that time as well! I feel so bad for him because he just seems so miserable at times and I just wish I could help him more. I heard a lot of good things about these homeopathic tablets/drops for teething so I finally broke down and bought some. The ones I got are liquid drops and they are all natural. I only had to use them a few times and they seemed to work ok. (or I guess it could have been coincidence) He actually is being a very good boy, considering.....
It was soooo long ago that I went through this teething stuff with Cal so I don't really remember all the tricks of the trade. I don't recall Cal being very fussy during these times. I don't know if he wasn't fussy or if it has just been so long that I forgot it. hee hee hee If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them! I tried all the standard/known treatments but, maybe someone knows something that I haven't tried yet!!
Here are a few pics of my big boy at 5 months old. Time sure flies....:(

Halloween 2008

Okay so I know I am a little late with posting these but, better late then never right?? This year we did things a little different then just going house to house for candy. My friend invited us to her neighborhood block party where they had a band, lots of food, raffles, a haunted house, and a bouncer for the kids! I figured it would be something different and fun to do this year. We did go house to house for a little while but, spent most of the night at the block party. That was fine with me since I don't allow Cal to have that much candy and then I would end up eating it all! Cal had a blast! He spent most of the night going back and forth between the bouncer and the haunted house. We had lots of fun listening to the band, chatting with friends, and eating good grub. Cal was a Army guy (or spy as he calls it) and Madden was a pea in a pod. Madden even won best costume for his 1st trick or treat! Yay Madden!!! Here are some pics! Hope you all enjoy!

Cal carved these all by himself! One for him, one for his brother!
