Christmas 2009

Sorry I haven't posted about Christmas sooner~ but it has been crazy around here. Jesse was on call over the week of Christmas and well it started out a slow week but Christmas Eve night all the calls began. Here are some pics of Christmas Eve:

Christmas morning the kids woke up at 7:15 Am so excited because Santa had come and left presents!! Luckly Jesse walked in soon after they woke up from being out working all night so he was there to see them open their gifts.

Austin and Hailee were very excited to recieve the Nintendo DSI this year and got several games for the Wii!! They must of been pretty good this year. Bodie got a new Bumbo seat that he loves :) Lots of other little things to!
The kids have kept busy playing with all their many new toys. I am hoping that will keep them going for awhile! Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

Happy 10th Birthday Austin

Ten years ago today, I welcomed my handsome son Austin into this world. From that day on my life has been filled with joy, love, and happiness. Austin has grown so much and turned into a handsome young man. I am so proud of all that he has accomplished and all that he has done. Austin, you make me one proud momma! I love you:)

Austin at 2 weeks
Austin at 3 years

Austin at 9 years old
I will have to make sure I update a picture of him at 10 years old!! Austin's request for the day was a red velvet birthday cake so that is what I am going to make:) I will post more later.

busy busy weekend

Let's start with Thursday...
Thursday night my sister Lindsey and Brian came up with their kids to stay the night. Brian had to be in Bloomington on Friday so Lindsey and her kids hung out with us:) The kids had a great time playing together. There were lots of laughing!! Then when Jesse got home from work and got ready Bodie, Jesse and I headed to Greenwood to finish up our Christmas shopping while Lindsey and Brian babysat for Austin and Hailee. Okay well our trip was fustrating to say the least. We rushed around store to store grabbing all the items we needed... We got home at 1 in the morning on Saturday. Then I had to stay up and wrap the gifts I needed to take to Odon, pack overnight bags for all of us. I made it to bed aroun 330 ish and had to be up at 7 to finish getting ready and get on the road headed to Odon. Yeah Jesse and I were TIRED!
On Saturday we enjoyed a family gathering at Cindy's for the Eaton side. Lots of yummy food, and visits with family. After everyone left then we did our Christmas with Bill and Cindy!! The kids got lots of new clothes, and games, and toys... They were so excited and very happy! Later that evening we headed over to my mom's to spend the night. I think we got to bed at midnight there.
Sunday morning I got up and helped mom get stuff ready. All my sister's, brother, and grandma Wanda came to spend the day and celebrate. Another yummy meal, lots of playing, and more toys. We also celebrated birthday's (Brian, and Zaden) while there. We left there around 330 and headed home.
When we got home and unloaded things, I realized how much work I have to do. I have mounds of laundry to do in the laundry room and tons of toys, and games laying on my couch that I have to make room for. So that is my job for the day:)
Now it is Monday and Jesse is on call this whole week.... What a weekend, now I need some time to catch up on sleep and relax:)

Last night, we took the kids for a drive through the park. It really doesn't matter how many times we drive through it, they still get excited to see the Christmas lights and decor. They LOVE it!! When we got home they decided to watch some Christmas shows that were on TV~ Hailee got out her "camping bag" so that she could lay down and watch them. I loved walking in the living room and seeing them laying on the floor in their sleeping bags watching tv together. So Sweet!! Soon they will have to make room for Bodie~ I am sure that he will be right there in the middle of them :)
We have no big plans for this weekend~ yay!! We are just getting some stuff done around the house that is on the TO DO LIST... Yeah that list keeps getting longer and longer. We are also getting our final list ready and our last minute things together. We are planning a day of shopping next week. Then it will be to Odon for that weekend to celebrate some Christmas with our families.
Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Remember a loved one

A year ago today was the day that Grandma Marjorie Eaton went to be with our heavenly father. She is GREATLY missed everyday by all, but never forgotten. We are going to take time out this evening and talk about all the things we remember about her. I am sure that there are many stories that Jesse will be sharing with us all. So to all of you that knew her take time and do the same. I am sure she is smiling down upon us.

Moment to Cherish

Just wanted to share with you something that I have been enjoying this week.... I love watching Bodie get so excited when he see's and hears his brother Austin and sissy Hailee walk in the room and talk to him. Bodie gets his feet a kicking and his arms a swinging~ a big grin and lots of cooing. It is these moments that I cherish!!

My 14 pounder...

Our little guy is growing so fast. He went to the dr. for his two month checkup to find out the scales said he weighs 14lbs!! I couldn't believe it!! He is growing so fast. Everything looked great at the dr, so he goes back in two months.

Bodie is now smiling ALOT!! He has one cute smile to:) He loves to coo at everyone especially his brother and sister. He likes to hang out with daddy but when it is time to cuddle then he is a mommy boy!! I LOVE IT. He loves listening to Hailee and Austin, and also loves to watch them play. He is such a ham. Here are some pictures I will share with you.
