Disney 2009!!!!

We had character dinings every day at Disney...this is one with the Playhouse Disney characters! Macy loved the characters too!!
Chip...or Dale??

Getting ready to go into "It's Tough to be a Bug" 3D cute! Macy sat through the entire show with her glasses on!

This was about day 3...both kids fell asleep on the way back to the room (we stayed on the grounds but thankfully took our car to the parks some of the days). These poor kids were down for the count!!!

Captain Hook and Mr. Smee...Drew's favorites!

Disneyworld 2009!!!!

Last month we took another trip to Disney!!! This was Drew's second trip and Macy's first. We had a GREAT time. Drew loved meeting all the characters and getting lots of autographs. As you can see, the first two days the weather was a little chilly but by the end of the trip, we were wearing shorts. I am already looking forward to going back!
The family with "Foofy" (Macy's new favorite character). She liked Me Mou (Micky Mouse) too!

Drew met all the Power Rangers which was HUGE to a four year old boy! They even got you to do Power Ranger poses for the pictures...this is one of my favorites...Drew is so intense!

I'm back.....

Okay, I have been terrible at posting! You would think that the photographer's wife would have some fancy camera and no trouble downloading - well, not quite! My terrible little camera never wants to let me download and I can't get any help from the professional in the household!! SO...that is my excuse!!! Ha. Anyway, here are a few pics from the last couple of months. We just got back from Disneyworld so I hope to get the pictures uploaded soon - we had a blast!

more zoo pics.....

Macy....and bun bun (that is her bunny...she is completely attached)Hayes Brown

Drew and William checking out some animals (not sure what this was??).

Memphis Zoo trip

We recently went to the Memphis Zoo with our friends, William and Hayes Brown...and Mrs. Meredith. The kids had a ball and after Meredith and I got in the gates (which was a zoo in itself!), the little one's diaper's changed, and the big kids to the bathroom, we had a good time too! Here Drew and William stop for a photo opportunity before getting started looking for animals!!!

Macy and Hayes...they were both such troopers!

Drew and William in the native American exhibit.

The boys playing with the sea lions. The sea lions really put on a show for us and the boys loved it!

Drew and the giant of only 4 giant panda exhibits in the US!

We're still here!!!!

I has been over a month since I last posted. We are still here - just enjoying football season (well, at least the social aspect), this fall weather, and these precious kids! Here are a few funny pictures - and stories - from the past month. Zoo pictures to follow. We also go to the pumpkin patch tomorrow with Drew's preschool and have lots of Halloween festivities this week that I will post in the next few days.
Drew and I made brownies the other day - and Drew fed Macy out of the bowl - as you can see...she really liked it!

A few days ago, Drew was getting ready to go to school and I told him to go put his socks on. This is how he came back in the room...obviously wearing his dad's socks. No wonder it takes us so long to get to school!!!

This is Bella. My friend, Allison's next door neighbor rescued her out of a river and she made her way to our house this summer. She is a great dog and she and Drew love to play. Last year, Andrew built Drew a great swingset/fort in the backyard. Drew loves playing in it. Well, several weeks ago, Drew was in the fort playing...I looked outside and Bella was barking and trying to get to Drew. A few seconds later, I see her leap up the front ladder and into the fort. I can't explain how thrilled Drew was about this! They played and played and then Drew sort of pulled Bella down the slide to get her down. This went on for a week or so. Now, Bella has claimed the fort as her own "penthouse". She literally climbs the ladder like a human - one rung at at time. You can find her snoozing in her fort or sitting in the lookout area most of the day. And how does she get down, you ask....she slides down the slide of course! It is hilarious and I need to try to get it on video. Drew thinks that he has a "super dog" - and he just might!!

Drew and Bella in the fort.

This is a shot of the whole swingset aka Bella's "penthouse". What dog wouldn't like a house like this!!! We are putting a pool in for her next spring....

Western Day at preschool!

Drew had western day at preschool today. Here are a couple of pictures in his cowboy attire! He has had a big week this week. His cousins, Peyton, Rachel and Blair Lamb, were in town for a short visit yesterday and he had a ball playing with them! He loves them so much and I am pretty sure he didn't sit still at all yesterday - they played so hard. I forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures of all of them together. I will try to do better when they are here for Thanksgiving!!

Here is Macy in her p.j.s this morning before taking Drew to school. She loves her brother so much but she also loves those 3 hours a day when he is at school and she can play in his room - and play without being tackled!
