O'Clause


He's not a fan. We took Caleb to see Santa (or O'Clause as Caleb calls him) at Bass Pro while we were in Savannah for Thanksgiving. On the way home, Caleb kept repeating "O'Clause, hold you, waa-waaa (fake cry)". I just hope we haven't traumatized the boy for life.

100 acre farm




We got to go back to the 100 acre farm last weekend (where we got married in Madison, GA). Chad married some friends of ours there and we got to spend the weekend on the farm. It was so fun to be back in Madison, see old friends, and enjoy the country. Caleb LOVED the chickens, goats, and horses. Here are a few pics of the little man on the farm.

Halloween




I'm way behind on blogging...but here is my little guy all dressed up for halloween.

Little Clown


Caleb and I went by Chad's office the other day. Before we left, Caleb and I had a little fun in the skit closet. Whenever I show Caleb this picture on my camera, he totally cracks up at himself.

Pumpkin Patch Playgroup



Playgroup met at the pumpkin patch last week. Here is our attempt to take a picture of the 6 kiddos. ..Caleb, Lyla, Ava, Maddy, Luke, and AJ.

It's a boy!




I'm a little late posting this as we've known for almost 2 weeks, but anyway we are having another boy! The doc. is guessing he is going to be a big one. We are very excited about having 2 boys. I've been reading Caleb the book "My new baby" and trying to prepare him. He points to my belly when you ask him where the baby is and gives it kisses. But I'm sure he really has no idea what's coming

Little Picasso

Rainy days are perfect days for painting. Here is Caleb's first time using the fingerpaints Aunt Anna got him for his birthday. I think he's a natural!

Happy Birthday Luke!

Baby Luke is 1 year old. I guess I cant call him a baby anymore. Happy Birthday Luke (or as Caleb calls him "Gook")!

Aunt Anna is married!





Anna and Josh got married in Savannah this past weekend. It was a beautiful wedding and we all had a great time. Caleb got to stay out past bedtime 2 nights in a row and had a great time at Grammy and Big John's house.

Bat Ball Incident

Caleb loves playing "bat-ball." We've got quite a few videos of him blasting the ball, but this is by far the funniest. Though it does not show Caleb's sweeter side, it sure does make us laugh.

Words

video
Caleb is saying all kinds of things these days. This is my attempt to capture his sweet little voice on camera.

Braves Game




We took Caleb to his first Braves game and he loved it! He was so good the whole time and just watched and clapped. The next day he kept saying "bay-ball-gay"

Look what we caught!


Chad was so excited when we were on a walk in Savannah and we saw this snake. Caleb was probably equally excited and just kept saying "ssssssssssss." I wasn't all that thrilled, but was happy to take pictures of Daddy and Caleb's first snake.

Caleb and Mary Kate


I've been meaning to post this sweet picture of Caleb and Mary Kate. For the week we made it in Colorado Caleb loved playing with Mary Kate. I know he has missed playing with her!

Farewell Frontier



We are coming home from Frontier earlier than expected. We have been dealing with an outbreak of the swine flu here and it hasn't quite been contained (for more info see the YL website). Since I am 6 weeks pregnant, we feel the wisest thing for our family is to come home. We will miss Frontier, but are confident in our decision. As far as camp... please pray families who are staying don't get sick as well as the campers coming. We pray this flu doesn't take away from kids hearing the gospel and having the best week of their lives.

St. Elmo's



I think Caleb was expecting a furry red guy when we told him we were going to St. Elmo's, but really it is a cool little ghost town near camp. The coolest part is the chipmunks they let you feed them right out of your hand. They crawled all over us and Caleb had fun trying to bop them on the head (and suceeding more than once). My camera died shortly after we got there, but I got a few pictures.

Wild Wild West




A couple of nights ago was the camp night where we all dress like we're from the 1800's. I think the cowboy hat suits little man well.

Frontier Ranch



We are in Colorado at gorgeous Frontier Ranch. The mountains are beautiful, the camp is fun, and we are having a great time so far. Chad is a head leader here for a month, which basically means he is making sure camp runs smoothly for the 400-500 campers that will be here each week. While he is busy running around doing important stuff, Caleb and I get to play.

Guess What?????


Caleb is gonna be a big brother! We just found out about a week ago that we are expecting our second child sometime in February. We are very excited! I always wanted my babies close together, so here we go... We told all of our family by putting this t-shirt on Caleb and letting them figure it out.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO CALEB!!!!






Caleb is one year old! I can't believe my baby is one! The year has flown by and been so much fun. I never knew I could laugh or love so much until Caleb came into our lives.
We had a low key celebration on Friday where we went to Chick-fil-A to eat nuggets and ice cream. And then all of Caleb's friends came over on Saturday for a party...which was super fun. We had baby pools, watermelon, presents, and of course cake. Caleb played his little heart out and had a great time. Thanks for everyone who came to celebrate with us. More pics to come...

Beach Trip



I finally filled all the disk space on my computer with thousands of Caleb pictures and so it has taken me a while to post these of our last beach trip. Caleb had fun playing in the ocean, he is not one bit scared of the water. He is much harder to photograph these days, now that he is constantly on the move and this is why I only have pictures of him from behind. Good thing his tush is cute!

Surgery

Caleb made it sucessfully through surgery today (to correct an undescended testicle). He was a champ. He was in a great mood all morning even though he hadn't eaten. He ran around the hospital like it was disney world and made friends with everyone. After surgery wasn't quite so happy, but after 30 minutes of groggyness he was pretty much back to himself. He's pretty bruised and swollen, but as the doctor put it "the groceries are in the sack" and all is good. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!!!

Pre-surgery.... We thought the tiny hospital gown was so cute.

Still smiling...pre-surgery

Post-surgery looking like" Do you know what they just did to me???!!!

poor baby!

Caleb in the Kitchen




This is the cabinet I cleared out for Caleb in our kitchen. Until the other day he only put his toys in it. This is way more fun.

Snuggles

video

Caleb was so excited when he woke up this morning and Luke was here. All he wanted to do was snuggle. Here lately, Luke has learned to tolerate affection from Caleb, which includes, but is not limited to hugs, kisses, eye pokes, and ear pulls. Caleb was pretty gentle here...

Emerald Coast


Thanks to some very generous donor, we headed to the gulf this weekend with all the other GA/AL YoungLife staff for the spring staff conference. This was Caleb first beach trip since he has been mobile. He really liked the water, but was not such a big fan of the sand. He had a great time running around with all the other kids. We had a really fun weekend and can't wait to go back in 3 weeks!

Comfy?

This is how the little stinker wanted to eat lunch the other day.

Fun at the Park

Just a sweet pic of Caleb playing at the park. He is getting so big and is fearless. He loves to climb through this tube thingee, push himself down the slide, and swing high.
