Times are a changin'.....

Wow - how does time fly!
Parker is just over 22 months old and is growing up WAY TO FAST....
We've been spoiled in that for the last ...oh lets say 14 months or so... Parker has gone to bed at 7:30ish and slept until about 6am ish....

SPOILED... SPOILED ... SPOILED.... The early mornings were tough for a while, but we got over that!

So, how are things changing.... well, we no longer have a child that wants to go to bed at a regular hour, but one that doesn't want to stay in his bed !!!
He has climbed out of his crib - yep, climbed over the railing, opened the door and came out to see what we are doing.. .multiple times in the middle of the night......

We decided to change things up!
We took the crib and utilized the 3-in-1 functionality! LOL
We turned it into a daybed!
We are 2 hours into our first night in the "big boy bed" and doing GREAT.
He went down without much trouble......
He has taken 1 tumble over the edge, but we had stuffed animals and blankets to soften the landing. A hug from mom and back to bed!!!!

Wish us luck!!

Spring Chop!!

Well its not NEARLY spring time yet here in Nashville with all this snow - but most of us got haircuts within the last few days! Parker got yet ANOTHER haircut and looks so handsome... Daddy got a slick trim up for his spiffy new sales position...which he is doing mighty well at I might add... and I decided that I needed to brighten and shorten my style for a different look.
Delainey .... well, we've been contemplating (and trying to agree) on what to do, so as soon as that happens, we'll put pictures of that up as well!

 A walking (or sitting) advertisement for SportClips. They always do a really good job!

A little blonder, and a little shorter with some layers.....

The National Championship Game !!!

The night has come to bring college football to an end for this season! I am proud to say that the Oregon Ducks have made it to the big dance.... ok, all you readers out there, that know that this is probably not called the "big dance"; oh well! Thats what I'm callin' it! :-)

Here are some pictures of Parker in his ducks "gear" that Grandpa Phil and Sherry got him for Christmas to represent the west coast!!!

Lovin on mommy!

Finally - A picture of the whole outfit!!!

Gotta have a drink with the big game!! Chillin' on dads lap!

Lucy - I don't want to play!

RUN....RUN.....RUN...... (while watching the game on tv)

I'm so darn stinkin' cute!!!

Nashville's Big Snow Event of 2011......

Sooooo - We have awoke to SNOW in Nashville....again! But this time, we got quite a bit! Delainey didn't have school so she stayed with Gram again today and got to play out in the fluffy white stuff with Uncle Kenny while the rest of us went on about our daily work! Fun fun fun....

I know that many people don't worry about snow at all, but in the South... ya see... people don't really know how to react. They don't drive well in it for the most part when it is just a dusting, but this was quite a bit!

Here are some pictures of my journey to work this morning!
This is the backyard looking down towards the neighbors! - I was driving past so you can't see our house!

Leaving the Neighborhood!
I know you aren't supposed to text while you drive, but nobody said anything about taking pictures with your phone.... LOL!!!

Another view from my drive to work!

I honestly didn't have any trouble driving in this (thanks to the truck) and thought it was beautiful!

I live near this field... you don't appreciate the beauty of your neighborhood until you see it like this!

Believe it or not - the is the parking lot at my office!!!! 
Can you tell where it starts and ends!?!?!?!
