Fixing to head into the zoo!

Petting zoo, he barely touched it!

Looking at the flamingos.

Waiting on Nana...

Kisses from Daddy :)

Kayla Bayla, being silly. She is so camera shy!

Golden Delicious!

"I pick a apple!"

I love his face :)

Katelynn, not all too sure about that gigantic turkey! This was the first time any of us had seen a live turkey.

Lauren, one of the few seconds that she was not running away from the animals, lol.

Adorable calf! His tongues was rough, like a cat's!

hehehe :)

Katelynn, loving on a goat.

Rebekka, calling everything a "dog", lol.

Not all that afraid!

My sweet girl, with her Daddy again.

Red Rome?

First time climbing in a tree!

One minute he was running wild, the next he was knocked out!

Kade in her walker, outside next to the bonfire.

Spinach, anyone?

Des, straight in from Drill.

Always sweet :)

Mom and Dad :) Love them!

"Reece car teck!"

Ky always tries to climb up in my lap when I nurse Kade! Maybe he misses our snuggles as much as I do?

Kayla, Kade, Faith, Becca, and Ky.

7 year old Faith (almost 8) holding her 6 month old niece.

Kade looks bigger than her!

I bribed her with a cookie to let me take her picture :)

At the moment I am sitting on my Mom's computer, waiting on them to get back from the JCCHS footbal game. My brother Daivon is a running back (I think) for the team, John (another brother) and Kieanna (sis) are both in the band, and my little brother Robert gets to sit in the stands and play with the highschool band tonight (he's in the 8th grade). Needless to say, my parents were needed there tonight for support!! GO PANTHERS! I am babysitting all of the little kids, and they are all tucked away in their beds, the elementary schoolers already asleep, and the 3 middle school girls chattering (or arguing, more likely) in their room upstairs. Joshua came home from work and picked up our two littles to take them home for bed. I had already nursed Kaedrianna, and she was sleeping soundly in her PJ's already. Ky, on the other hand, had a fever (and some Tylenol), and wanted to go "watch a Mater" (he wanted to go watch the movie Cars, which he pretty much does every single night before going to sleep). I'm hoping that he just has a cold and gets over this fast! This is already the second time he's been sick since the weather started turning cooler! Boo for sick babies!!!!

We have quite a few activities planned over the next month. We are hopefully going back to Zoo Atlanta to meet Dora and Diego (and the tickets are discounted), to a pumpkin patch and corn maze, and we have Kyson's birthday party to plan! If anything was ever bittersweet... He will be two in exactly one month and I just want to cry my eyes out! I know, without a single doubt in m mind, that I will cry on his birthday. Just a warning. We are thinking about a Mater smash cake... but I really haven't planned much at all! He loves Toy Story also, and that could make for a great party... but I think he probably favors Cars more... who knows what it will be! I might just go generic blue, because he sure wont remember the party, and I can still make some great memories and get some great pictures (plus it would do wonders for our poor budget!!).

I really do have some cute pictures to upload... and (without promising) plan to get around to doing it very very soon! :)

On a slight side note, I want to brag a little on my sister Destinee! She got her own apartment this past week! I know how scary/frustrating your first place is, and I just want to let her know that I am VERY proud of her! Way to go little sis!

My, oh my, how time flies! It has been a very short 6 months! Kaedrianna is huge, sitting up, eating baby food (or rather, spitting baby food), sleeping in my bed (we knew that would happen eventually), still nursing every 2-3 hours, is in a size 12 months (at LEAST), has to have her hair put up everyday because her bangs get in her eyes otherwise, has not cut any teeth, and in general, is a wonderful wonderful blessing to us (and if that isn't a run-on sentence, I don't know what is, lol)! At the moment she is sitting in the floor, on a blanket with a pillow behind her, playing with toys. She looks up at me every couple of minutes and gives me a huge grin, and we play peek-a-boo behind the laptop :)

Kyson David is currently napping (on time, hooray!!). His cute self fell asleep while munching on a snack, sitting in Kade's pink bouncy seat, with his Wiggle Big Red Car house shoes on :) I'm so glad that once he is asleep he is ASLEEP. I washed his face and hands off and carried him to my bed without him waking up. He is talking in short sentences, still a little runty, still loves being outside, LOVES the movie Cars (and especially the character Mater), loves tractors, "beeg tucks" (big trucks), Nana's house, and cheese (just like his mama, we go through a LOT of cheese). He is pretty head strong and stubborn :) We went to an apple orchard this week and were trying to get a picture of him on a ladder in one of the trees. He just stared down, like "Haha! I'm not going to let you take a picture!" (I still got a cute one :)) But for the most part he is a sweet boy, giving his sissy kisses all day long, and being a good boy for the most part. I love stealing snuggles from him! Most of the time it's when he is watching TV, which is fine with me because then I can just hug him close, close my eyes and thank God for such wonderful kiddos.

I have tons of pics to upload! We went to Zoo Atlanta for Josh's 25th birthday, and then the Ellijay with Mom, Tab, and their kids, which also included an awesome petting zoo!
