Happy Birthday John!

This weekend was John's 25th birthday (+ or -) so we "celebrated" by going to Fayetteville. John found a Jeep Cherokee to buy on craigslist. His Ford Ranger wasn't family-friendly enough...he needed a backseat for a baby!! Dave Ramsey would be proud, we paid with cash. Here's the new addition to the family...

Then we went to Smokey Bones for a birthday lunch.

Beef Brisket, cinnamon apples, texas toast, and yummy!!!!

Belly bump and Twilight obsession combined

Grillin' out

The weather was great this weekend! I was on-call at work for most of the weekend, but made it home in time Sunday evening to grill some steaks!


During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
