Good Times

OK. So, we went to the wedding this past weekend as planned. I was afraid it was going to be really chilly, but it turned out to be a pretty nice afternoon and evening. Derek and Jill and the boys came in too so Isaac was definitely glad to have a play-mate for the weekend. Before we get to the pictures, I have to tell a funny about our little boy during the wedding. He was actually pretty good for the biggest part of the ceremony. Towards the end, he started playing with the chair in front of us. There was no one sitting there, so I didn't see the harm. The preacher just spoke the words "You may now kiss the bride" when my child must have got his finger caught or something because he said, out loud "Owwwwww". The entire pew we were sitting on just about fell out of their seats, which of course, got Isaac tickled too. All in all, I guess that's pretty good for an almost 2 year old at a wedding. Anyway, this lovely family shot was taken between there ceremony and reception.

On to the reception......This was the first wedding Isaac had ever been to where he was big enough to know what was going on. Once it got dark and the lights were on and the music going, Isaac had a ball!! He and Jakob practically the first ones on the dance floor and just had the biggest time. As you can see, Isaac also found PaPa Boots to dance with too. Of course, we never even thought about taking the video camera. That would definitely have been an awesome moment to have on tape!

Anyway, after we got home from the wedding, Isaac was revved up again because he slept all the way home. He and I were in his play room watching The Wiggles (of course) and he opened the closet door to find his guitar that PaPa Murf and MaMa Hope got him. He drug it out and kept saying " DaDa guitar" and I kept telling him no, that's YOUR guitar Isaac. He then grabbed my hand and made me follow him into our bedroom, where Darren keeps his guitar. He wanted Darren to get his guitar like Isaac's and play so that's what they did. I just love this picture!! Aren't my boys just the cutest???

On Sunday after church, we had to post-pone Isaac's nap because it was just so pretty outside and Jakob was going to be going home soon. Isaac had the best time playing outside and I think this picture pretty much sums it all up! (If you can't tell, Isaac really gets into pictures these days and when you tell him to say cheese, he really yells "Cheese"!!!) This is my new favorite picture of him and I hope you like it just as much!!!


Spring is (hopefully!!) Here

I know, I know.....once again, things have been wild around our house and I haven't had a lot of time to update this things. Well, in all honesty, I've had SOME time, but I've spent most of it with the little guy! The weather has been so nice lately and with the time change and all, Isaac is definitely loving being outside!! Anyway, get comfy because this may be a long one!!!

The weekend of President's Day, we got a new vehicle. We decided that with all the trips to middle TN to see my family, the Murano was just getting a little bit tight. We found this awesome deal in Tupelo, MS and went to look at it, and ended up driving it home!! It's a 2007 Tahoe and I love it! It took some getting used to at first, but it's second nature to me now!!

Also in the month of February, we got a new niece!! Miss Callie Grace Holcomb was born on February 22nd to my step-sister Amanda. Mom and baby are both doing fine. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten to see her yet, but hopefully soon we will get to meet her!!

These next shots are some we took on our last trip to Carthage. We always have a good time visiting Grandma, Uncle Patch, and Moms. The time is always way too short though!! This photo below is Isaac when we got to Moms's house after church. He's looking pretty innocent here, huh??

These photos were taken of Isaac the very same day, after eating lunch and getting a little bit of energy! She has an old cedar chest that she uses as a coffee table in here living room and Isaac had a blast climbing on it and jumping onto the couch. We have several photos of this as this is a trick that his PaPa Murf taught him. Thanks PaPa!!! :)

This one here I took one night when Isaac was getting ready to go to bed. He was being such a sweetheart (like always) and I just couldn't resist taking some shots!!

This was Isaac the very next morning!! I thought it was hilarious that he was using Darren to sleep on. Yes, Isaac is in the bed with us. He ALWAYS starts out in his room, but with the exception of a rare occasion now and then, usually ends up in our bed. Yes, I know this is a bad habit to get in and I know he will be hard to break. That part I am definitely dreading, but at the same time, I know that a day will come when he will be "too big" or "too grown up" to want to sleep and cuddle with Mommy and Daddy so I figure I better take advantage of him while he's still little and willing!! (By the way though, if you have any trick on coaxing him back to sleeping in his own bed and his own room, please share!!!)

These next ones really have no specific occasion. I just liked the pictures!!

Again, I know it's been a long time since I last posted and I do apologize. It usually seems the only time I have to do this is when Isaac has gone to bed, but by that point, I'm usually exhausted myself and am not far behind him in getting some sleep!! I hope this weather continues because my little man just LOVES it! We are supposed to go to a wedding this weekend and if all goes well, I'll definitely have some more photos to post afterwards. Good night and much love to you all!!
