Best Photo Ever

We have taken soooooo many pictures of the kids together and this one is one of the best of them together! They are actually both looking at the camera and both is a Christmas miracle! We took this picture right before we left for church services yesterday morning! Enjoy....more pics from the holidays to follow soon!

Harrison's Holiday Concert

Well, we have officially began the ritual of school programs...Harrison had his first debut on Friday at his Mother's Morning Out program! Derrick and I weren't sure how he was going to react onstage in front of a building full of people, but to our surprise and joy he did GREAT. Although you couldn't hear him as well as a little blond boy in the back row (he was hilarious and the life of the show), we swelled with pride as we watched, took pictures and cried just a little bit! He was awesome! Here are just a few pictures of our star!

My Three Cuties...

I have three cuties (including my husband) :-)! Just wanted to share some photos that we have taken in the last couple of weeks. They are getting ready for Christmas! Harrison is excited, Darcie doesn't realize what is going on...i.e., all the decorations and such that are up around the house. They are having fun making things for teacher gifts, paper ornaments and such. We have been busy, busy, busy but it will slow down (I hope) a little bit next week. We are done with Christmas shopping for the most part (still have a few stocking stuffers to find), now we just have to wrap everything! Yikes! My husband's side of the family are getting together this weekend to do "Christmas"...and the kids are excited to spend the weekend opening their first gifts of the season. Hope you enjoy the pics!

The New Accessory

Darcie's newest accessory....I think the picture speaks for itself!! I thought that my son would be the one with the first broken bone....then, I had Darcie! She made a rememberable entrance into this world (emergency c-section) and I think her life will be rememberable as well (although I hope not TOO rememberable)!!!

And then, you have Harrison who is just a cutie! He has been very helpful (in his own way) since Darcie hurt herself. He was great yesterday during the xray visit and such before the ortho office. He was great! He got to go back to work with Daddy (which he loved) and then home with Daddy until Darcie and I got back with her new "bling".

Grandma's Visit

Here are a few pictures taken while Grandma was here for a week. We had a blast with her and I think she did too!! The kids always have a couple of days of Grandparent detoxxing (sp?) when they leave. Harrison got to sleep on his top bunk every night while she was here and she slept in his bed, which he thought was really cool. After Grandma left, every time the phone rang she would say, "granma"? It was cute but sad all at the same time.

Halloween 2011

Halloween Pictures taken this weekend and at the Pumpkin Patch last weekend! The kids had a blast at the Pumpkin Patch and had a great time getting lots of candy at the West Huntsville church of Christ Trunk or Treat last night. Now I have two bags of candy that are looking at me all day!! NOT GOOD!! Enjoy the pics!

Birthday CAKE!!!!

Today, Darcie had one of 3 Birthday celebrations in store for her this month. One here in Huntsville, one in Munford and one in Inverness. She will get not one, not two BUT THREE small parties!! She liked playing in the cake and eating it too. It took her a little while to get into it but after that, she was good!!! Here are a few pictures!!

Big Brother and Little Sister Moments...

Harrison looked at Darcie and said, "Darcie, come sit on the couch with me." So, I put her up on the couch and these are some of the pictures that followed. He is such a good big brother...and she is such a great little sister...most of the time :-).

Too Hip...

...or so he thinks!! He has really gotten into wearing his sunglasses and his hat all around town. He pushes them up to his head and he is so adorable!! He is growing up so fast!!!

Summer Days...

Well, Summer is here is full force and a few SAHM took advantage of the sunny day and let the kids play in the water for a few hours one day last week. The kids had a blast. This was Darcie's first time in a swimsuit and after a minute of crying she had a blast splashing in (and drinking) the water in the pool. She looks like she is up to something in the first picture... Hope you enjoy the pics!

Weenies and Spaghetti...The Meladine Favorite

Every time we went to New Orleans we always had the same "welcome home" meal....Weenies and Spaghetti and PaPa's famous Green Beans--followed by New Orleans French Bread and PaPa's Sweet Tea!! This is one meal that I am still trying to perfect to PaPa's (which will probably never happen) recipe!! Tonight was another shot at it and as you can see both of my kids were very happy. This was Darcie's first time eating spaghetti and she LOVED it...Harrison, as you can see, has learned the art of eating spaghetti (most times) without getting it all over him, the table and the floor :-). Hope you enjoy the pics!

School Days

School Days, School Days, Good 'ol Golden Rule Days....
Harrison started "school" last week. One day a week during the summer and then two days a week beginning this fall. He did GREAT the first day but today I left him, hopefully he does well and continues to like it! This is a picture of his "Cars" lunchbox that has all his favorites inside :-)

The Fork...or Any Other Utensil...

Darcie carries this fork (or spoon or knife) all around the house. If you take it from her...she screams!! The other day at church services she decided that she didn't want it anymore and threw it across the aisle!! This could become a dangerous habit :-).

The Sandbox Tails...

Last night was the first time we have put Darcie in the Sandbox as well. Harrison and Darcie played very well together in the sandbox much to my surprise. I figured there would be throwing of sand and many more things that flooded my imagination :-). So, here are a few pictures of what REALLY happened. Darcie LOVED the sand as you can see...

The Past Few Weeks...

Seriously, I haven't updated in a YEAR!! This is really SAD!! Maybe I will get better about posting one day...I don't know when that will be but MAYBE it will be in the near future. Here are a couple of pictures of Darcie with her first "pigtails", Harrison playing in the sandbox and also the finished product of Harrison writing his first, middle and last name. He is AWESOME!!
