Christmas Card Picture take 1

I took Thomas out to Sturbridge on Saturday to try and take a picture of him for his Gran's Christmas Card. Well, let's just say I didn't get ANYTHING! It was freezing, it is kinda hard keeping a 19 month old still, and take the picture all by yourself. And to top it all off, after about 5 minutes of being out there my camera decided that the battery needed charging and it died! So I guess we will try again!

Take 2!

OKAY! So after the first diaster, January and I tried to help each other. IF it isn't hard enough to get one 19 month old to sit still we tried to get 2 19 month olds to sit still. We both got one good picture to use! They are soo funny!

Ta Da!

Mama's Christmas Card Picture! Too precious for words!

Zoo in Lights!

Chuck and I took Thomas out to the Zoo to see the Christmas lights! Of course it had to be freezing the night that we chose to go. We bundled Thomas up and here we went. He looked like the little boy off the movie, "The Christmas Story". He was too funny. People in line were having a fit over him. He was trying to do his "famous" waving and "HEY!" but he couldn't really move his arms very well. He loved the train and looking at all the lights!


This is priceless!! Last year in his Santa picture he was looking at Santa in AWE!! This year he just about had a HEART-ATTACK when I sat him in Santa's lap! It's funny how much in a year things change! Santa I promise he has been a pretty good boy this year!

Bad hair and the wrong side of the bed!

I took this right after Thomas woke up from a nap! WOW! Look at that hair! He looks like a pack of rats has been fighting up there. Not to mention the face he is making. Don't think he was ready to get up yet! This hair is even after a haircut! What are we going to do with this mess?

The "Lemmond" Tree

Aunt Babbie sent us this lemon tree in January after Thomas and I had been for a visit. I had no idea that it would produce lemons this year. There are 4 on the tree. I can't wait for them to be ready. I love lemons and it just fits because of our last name! I have lemon stuff all over our kitchen! Thank you Aunt Babbie!

Yard Sale

Thomas and I had a Yard Sale the first of November. Of course the day I picked turned out to be one of the coldest days yet and the wind was blowing 100 mph. Needless to say we didn't so very well and we didn't stay out there very long. I couldn't resist taking a few pictures of him. I thought he looked so cute in this blue sweatshirt.

Fall Festival with Arden!

We went to the Fall Festival at Arden's church. Thomas had a blast! He played almost all the games but his favorite was jumping in the blow-up thing! I didn't think we were ever going to get him out of it. He would get out and then run right back in. He is getting so big!

This tree is AWESOME!

I put up our tree while Thomas was napping one day. I didn't have all the ornaments on by the time he woke up but I did have it all lit up. He thought it was AWESOME! I loved laying in the floor and looking up at it. Now there are presents under there so he won't fit! He really hasn't bothered it too much. I thought that we would be constantly saying "NO" but he just stands there and looks at it and points to the ornaments! Such a sweet boy!

I want THIS for Christmas!

Thomas sat down in the floor with this magazine full of toys! Apparently he knows exactly what he wants for Christmas. Sure hope he tells SANTA!

Talking to Gran!

Thomas loves to talk on the phone. I guess he gets it honest. Chuck and I are always on the phone and now Thomas has to talk every time I am on it, (no matter who I am talking to). This is a little video of him talking to his Gran!

'Mon Gran let's ride!

This teeter-totter is at the grocery store in Columbia. Thomas always "eyes" it when we go to the store! We let him ride it Sunday with Gran. This was too funny! He thought it was too cool!

First Haircut!

After the Parade on Saturday (Nov. 8th), Thomas got his first haircut! What a disaster! He starting screaming before Kris even started. She did such a good job! All those baby curls are gone. He looks like such a big boy now!

The Peanut Festival Parade

Saturday mama, Chuck, Thomas and I went to the Peanut Festival Parade. Thomas loved getting to see all the tractors, floats, and bands. He thought it was all pretty neat. The coolest of all was when a friend of mine that is a Marine Fighter Pilot flew over the parade in an F/A 18 fighter jet. That was one of the coolest things I have ever experienced. I tried so hard to get it on video but they were on us so fast I think I only got the sound of the jets. That was the highlight of the parade! Thanks Jason!

The National Peanut Festival

We took Thomas to the fair last weekend in Dothan. I wanted to take him last year but it just didn't work out. The fair is so special to me and I have many childhood memories. It is such a BIG DEAL at home. Of course the only night that it rained was the night that we had planned to go and the only night we could go. We went anyway and it actually turned out to be pretty good. We didn't ride any rides because it was so wet but he did get to ride a pony. I thought for sure he would be scared to death but he loved it.

Do I need a haircut or what?

This is the way that Thomas looks when he gets up from a nap. His hair is a HOT MESS!!! I think its about time for a haircut.

Halloween Party at Aunt Donna and Uncle Rick's house!

The Saturday night after Halloween, Aunt Donna and Uncle Rick had a Halloween party at their house for the kids. They had this pool of corn just for Thomas! He had had so much fun playing in it at the pumpkin patch that Aunt Donna and Uncle Rick decided to have it at their party. As soon as I put Thomas in it he layed down in it and acted like he was swimming. He had a blast. Everyone wore costumes, we had a hayride and some games for the kids. We had soo much fun and can't wait until next year!

Trick or Treat!

We went on a hayride trick-or-treating with one of my friends on Halloween night. Thomas had a blast! He caught onto the whole trick-or-treating bit after the first house. He would grab his pumpkin and take off to the door. Soo cute! His GG even got to ride around town with us. It was a little cold but he kept her warm!

Halloween with my Girlfriend!

The cheerleader and the duck got to do some trunk-or-treating the Wednesday before Halloween! They have this every year at Arden's church. Last year the kids were soo little. It is amazing how much they grow in a year!

Halloween at Kindermusik

The week of Halloween the kids wore their costumes to kindermusik. They were all soo cute! We had such a hard time keeping them all seated for a group picture. Think it turned out pretty cute though!

Little Duck!

Thomas was a duck this Halloween! He was the cutest duck that I have ever seen. I couldn't resist trying to get some pictures of him in his costume. The pumpkin he is holding is one of mine when I was a little girl and my mama has a picture of me holding it and looking at it just like he is doing in the picture. Pretty neat!

Pratt Park!

Thomas and I took a trip to the Park in Prattville after his 18 month check-up with Dr. Diebel. He had a blast. This was the first time he had gotten to play on a playground like this. He loved it. He wanted to climb on everything. Think we'll be going again REAL soon!
