Accident Prone?

Our poor little Carley has had sooo many accidents this week. It started off on Tuesday when we were at a friend's house for playgroup. She kept climbing up and down the stairs, I got her off the stairs probably 20-30 times(it feels like). We were all just sitting around talking and we here a loud boom/crash whatever the sound was of her falling followed by my sweet baby screaming. I jumped up faster than I ever have to go get her. She had fallen pretty far, I think. She was ok though, no concussion or anything like that, just a tiny bruise on her cheek, a scratch across her upper lip, and a little bit of a bloddy nose, and a small carpet burn. The next accident came last night when she and Tegan were playing in the recliner(oh I forgot to add, carley can now climb up into the recliner). They were playing in the chair just having fun then we hear the noise of a loud bump into something and she had fallen on the chair arm towards our fireplace mantle(the side of it) and hit her face on it and scratched her little nose up. Her poor face this week has taken a beating, bless her heart. The final accident to date this week was this morning. I was taking a bath and she walked into the bathroom with me like she does every morning and she tripped over her blankey and fell. During her fall, she bit the side of her mouth causing a gushing of blood to come out of her mouth. Luckily, that fall didn't cause as much crying as the others, and her mouth is already better. I hope she doesn't have these accidents next week!!!!!

Atlanta Hawks

Terrel & I were able to go to an Atlanta Hawks game on Wednesday, Jan 13 with Bryce and his friend Chad. Mom watched the girls so we were able to go and actually get to watch the game and not have to chase little ones up and down the stairs. Thanks MOM!!! We had a great time. Our seats were great, they were 4 rows from the court. we were basically right behind the Hawks bench. The Hawks were able to pull off a win, but not without struggle. They played the Washington Wizards, so apparently they should have beat them by a lot, but they didn't. It was a fun night, and we hope to go back soon!!!

Snow Jan 2010

January 7 2010~ here comes the SNOW!!!! It started out with just some flurries....then came more and more and the flakes got bigger and bigger....and then finally it started to accumulate!!!! We only got about an inch I guess maybe a litte more. It was really pretty though!!! Well, the temperatures stayed below freezing like that had been for several days before, so the roads got iced over during the night. There were tragic wrecks, people iced in, and the roads were very slippery. We're thankful we were safe and had a nice warm house and warm water and food...unlike 1000's of people out there. Tegan and Carley went outside when the snow started falling, but once it stuck, Tegan did not want to go back out there because it was "brrrr.....it cold outside!!!"(as Tegan would say). Terrel went on to work, but went later in the day. He said the Interstates were fine, but some of the side roads were completely covered in ice. Thankful he was able to get to work safely & arrive home safe also! We've been in Atlanta for 1 year and a half and have had snow 3 times already :):) I love the snow and the cold weather(most of the time) because I get to bundle up in my scarves and gloves and hats and I get to bundle the girls up too in their cute winter clothes :) Here are a few pictures from the snow/ice:

Gettin in Shape

We joined the gym. We're so excited about getting back into working out this new year. we really enjoy Fitness 19(the gym we joined) and they are very reasonable, and they have lots of good equipment to use, and a childcare. We look forward to getting into shape and being more healthy. May you all(whoever reads this) have a desire to get back into shape or continue staying in shape and living a healthy lifestyle!!!

Out with the old....In with the new

I am happy & sad to report that the car I have been driving since my senior year of high school is no longer ours. After driving it for so many years and putting sooooo many miles on it....we SOLD it. The day we sold it, it had 217,777 miles. It was a GREAT car, we never had any problems with it. We were ready to get rid of it, but also sad at the same time to let such a good car go. We hope Mr. Earl(the guy who purchased it) will get some great use out of it and that his daughter(who Earl bought the car for) will enjoy it as much as I did. We sold it because I wanted a newer car and one that we could travel in other than Terrel's work car...we wanted something we could travel in that has a little more room--which the 4runner did---but we could not travel in it any longer b/c of the miles it already had on it. I will forever remember my 4runner...b/c it has so much sentimental value.
SO...
OUT WITH THE OLD



IN WITH THE NEW


This is my new car. A 2006 Honda Pilot. I ABSOLUTELY love it. It has 3 rows of seats and can hold up to 8 people. It has lots of room and will be so comfortable when we travel places. I'm so happy to have a new car....& so blessed to have a husband with a wonderful job that allows us to not only have the things we need but also the things we want.

15 Months

Carley turned 15 months on Christmas Day(Dec. 25). She had her 15 month checkup on Wed. Jan 6. She is a growin girl :). SHe weighed in at 26 lbs(75-80%). Her height is 31 1/4 inches(25-50%). Her head circumference is 47.6(80%). She is still growing on the same track she's been on since she was born. Doctor C. said she's PERFECT--but we already know that :). She had to do a vision test which she did great on, and she also had to have 3 shots :(--normally she would have only had two, but I had to get them the flu shot. I wasn't going to get them the flu shot because I never have done it for them....but they have wheezed the last two years and ahve had to be on an inhaler so Doctor C said we really needed to get them the flu shot once they are over their wheezing they were doing back in December. Carley and Tegan both had flu shots, and they both did great. Tegan still brings it up every now and then that she had to get a shot at the doctor. Tegan remembers EVERYTHING---so be careful what you tell her or promise her, because she will remember and REMIND you. Both girls are doing great and we're just lovin' life.
