Nelwyn and Bostons's Birthdays

Tuesday was Nelwyn's Birthday and Wednesday was Boston's Birthday. So we got together as a family on Monday to celebrate the two amazing people. We went over to Ashley's parents for dinner and the festivities. After dinner it was time to open presents.

Mike's Birthday

I know this is late but this is a update on Mike's Birthday. We had a family dinner for his birthday on Sunday.

Mike and his cake by his request it was 4 layers with funfetti and strawberry.Singing Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boy.

So on the day of his birthday I had the week off. I made him breakfast in bed and then we just relaxed in the pool for the day. Then we went to a wonderful dinner with Mike's parents. I tried to get a picture of us before we went out to dinner but our camera is broken and we tried with our phone and that didn't work out. :( So that is the update... I hope he had a great birthday and I look forward to spending more of those with him. Love ya Babe!!

Finally an Update...

I know it has been forever since I have made a post. My excuse is that I don’t have a kid so I don’t have anything to write about or any cute pictures to show. I really have just been working and have had the chance to take care of Boston and Cade last weekend. I had so much fun with them even if I didn’t get that much sleep. I got them Friday night and they spent the night with Mike and me. Then on Saturday we just hung out around the house and I even took an adventure with the two boys and we went out shopping. That was an experience in and of its self, me with a two year old that likes to be independent and a 6 month old that doesn’t like being in the car. We first went to Hobby Lobby and then it was off to Wal-mart. We were in the craft section and Boston has a good eye and noticed the toys. So as we are looking at the beads Boston is trying to convince me to take him over to the toys. I had to inform him that we were not going to buy anything. It was really funny because he would tell me that we would just go and look and he was fine with that. So we get over to the toys and the next thing out of his mouth is “I would like to hold that but we aren’t going to buy it” and that was ok with me. Then he started to tell me that we aren’t going to buy it but he was going to get it for his birthday. So anything he saw he said “I get that for my birthday”. So after that we went home and made a Mother’s Day present for Ashley from Boston. I was a poem that I had about little kids’ fingerprints and then we stamped his hands on the paper. Later that day I look the boys back to Ashley and Jamie. It was a nice weekend to spend with those little guys. Thanks Jamie and Ashley for letting me take your kids. So that is pretty much all that has gone on around our place.

I finally put an update on.... :) Check it out and I hope you Enjoy!


Christmas.... It was a Walker Christmas this year so we spent the time with my family. We had Jamie, Ashley, Boston, and Cade stay at the Nixon's with us b/c there is just not enough room at Dad and Nelwyn's and at their house they had Corey and Marianne( Nelwyn's Daughter). We just hung out until Christmas Eve. Then on Christmas Eve we did our usual tradition of having chili and corn bread for dinner, open our Christmas pajamas and then we headed out to go look at Christmas lights. We went to a house that is in a neighborhood close to us that has 104,000 lights on it and you can turn your radio to a station and the lights go with the music. It is so amazing I can't even imagine all the time it would take to put it up and take it all down. On the way home from looking at lights we played freeze out so that we would be ready when we got home for some nice warm hot chocolate. :) Then Christmas morning we got up and got ready and went back over to dads house. It was so fun to see Boston so excited to see what Santa brought him and if he had the cookies and milk Boston up out for him. He also helped my dad in handing out the presents. Each of us kids got an amazing present this year Corey got my moms wedding ring, Jamie got my moms 25th anniversary ring, and I got my grandmas wedding ring. It is amazing to have that and be able to pass it on to my oldest girl some day. I also got for my birthday my moms CTR ring. For Christmas dinner we had Ashley's family and one of Nelwyn's friends and her son over. We had yummy ham with all the sides but the best was the delicious fried turkey that we had. Holy Cow it was amazing! If you have never had that I do have to say you should to try it. On that Saturday Jamie and Ashley went to celebrate their 5 year wedding anniversary so Mike and I had the boys. It was so much fun and it wasn't bad at all to go from having no kids to having two boys over night. Then on Monday the 29th Corey's girlfriend Amber flew into town and we went over to Jamie and Ashley's to meet her. She is an amazing girl and I wish we could have spent more time with her. Hope to see her again soon. On New Years Eve we went over to Jamie and Ashley's so that the next day they could take us to the airport. We had fun staying up and watching the ball drop and eating some munchies. Then we got up the next morning and went to the airport and headed off to the Nixon Reunion. Update on the once I can get some pictures from Dad.

Thanksgiving ...Camille's birthday is at the beginning of November so David got her tickets for all the kids to fly home for Thanksgiving. It was so much fun to have everyone home. We didn't have that much time to spend with everyone especially Chris who got here on Thanksgiving afternoon but we made the best of it. We went out to eat and hung out. We also did a lot of Rock Band playing. We went to Main Event and went bowling and then at work I got coupons for all of us to get a free card with 10 bucks on it for the arcades which was a lot of fun. Then we had to say good bye to everyone but we knew we would see them after Christmas for the Nixon Reunion.
