Nora is here!

We were blessed with a beautiful baby girl on Friday, October 16, 2009 at 4:13 pm. She weighed 8 lbs. 7.2 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. She has a dark hair like me and twice as much as Drew did, he had none! We are both doing great and are at home - resting well :) Just a little update for all my blog followers and here are a few pictures.

Cowboy Up!!!


Before i get started, let me warn you that this is kevin - not Jennifer posting this time! It's been almost a year since i've written anything on this blog and it may be another year til you hear from me again!!! So, here goes....

Well, as many of you may know, i've been changing the direction of my tree business. After being spoiled by two fantastic employees (Judd and Shaine - that's you), i've been disappointed by everyone else i've ever hired! So, i've decided to simply scale back and primarily do jobs that i can handle all by myself (Turkey's my emergency go-to-man if i get in a pinch). Ok, already - i'm rambling - long story short - i decided to sell my skid steer (here's a pic for all of you wondering what in the world a skid steer is) ... to a fella in WYOMING......AND DELIVER IT!!!! Hmmm... i began to reminisce.... i've made this trip 6 times before when i worked out there.....but never with an 8 month pregnant wife and a 21 month old little boy!!! It shouldn't be too bad, right?!?! Well, honestly, it wasn't!!! Thank goodness for that DVD player Grammy bought! Anybody ever watched Nemo 6 times in one day...... IN A ROW?!?! Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming...!

We definitely had some memorable moments - and that's what i was hoping for - the kind of memories that are etched in your mind - unable to be reproduced on any kind of film! But for your viewing enjoyment, here's a pic of Drew on his "Throne" and one of us crashing after a long day of driving!! They were a couple of real troopers and definitely "Cowboyed Up" to make the trip!!!

After delivering the skid steer and staying with Frank and Karen for a few days, we headed off to Yellowstone and the Tetons! We saw Old Faithful do her thing and then drove on down to Jackson Hole that night (getting there around 1:30am) - Drew was still awake!!! Jackson Hole was beautiful - as were the Tetons and we will definitely be back in a few years to enjoy them for a longer period of time!! We'll add some pics of that leg of the trip later (we don't have those pics uploaded yet).

On the trek home we were able to stop in Denver and see the one friend from high school i still keep in touch with - Cam (along with his wife Rachel and son Cale). It was great to do a little catching up!

About half way across Kansas the big white goat - that's my 98 Dodge Ram - started screaming at me like it was mad!! After an under-the-hood inspection at the rest area i realized that the main bearing on my water pump was on the verge of "crappin' out"!From that point on, for the next 900 miles, we had to stop every 75-90 miles and add water or coolant to the radiator. So... i felt very fortunate that we were able to limp home without having to play mechanic on the side of the interstate!!

Well, we arrived home safe......and tired!!! But very thankful!!!! We brought back a lot of memories..... and Drew, well, he brought back some sort of heat rash on his inner thighs or something!!!!! (He really did and i felt very sorry for him - but we got it cleared up).

Well, here are some other random pics of our trek out west - we'll post more later! Thanks for reading my rambling!

Weekend @ Smith Lake

This past weekend my family went to Smith Lake. This was the second time Drew had ever been in a boat and he absolutely loved it! I was afraid he was going to hate the life jacket but it turns out - he didn't mind it at all! He actually fell asleep every time he road in the boat! Here are a few pictures from the weekend. The videos are not the best, but Drew even got to "jump" off of the rock like everyone else. Have a great week - we leave for the beach on Thursday with Kevin's family!

laughter...

When Drew starts laughing it is hard for him to stop - especially if he is tired. Here is a video - it is a little dark but at least you can hear him laughing. Kevin is making a "sound" with his armpit and Drew thinks it is the funniest. Enjoy :)

Gramps Birthday weekend

Last weekend we met Kevin's family in Florence, AL for Gramps birthday. We stayed at the Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa and it was so nice! We really did not have a plan we just did whatever. Saturday we went to the Spring Park in Tuscumbia and just let the kids play. Unfortunately, the battery in my camera was dead and I did not get to take any pictures while we were at the park. We all had lots of fun, we got to ride the train, the carousel/merry-go-round, and there was even a roller coaster! I can not forget that there was an indoor pool and that is where the kids wanted to spend most of their time. Here are a few pictures. Happy late birthday Gramps! Hope you had a great weekend.

Easter 2009

Here is a quick recap of our Easter festivities! Friday Aunt Jeka came over and we went to the shops at Brickerton for the 9th Annual Giant Egg hunt. There were so many children and at least 10,000 eggs to find. Drew was able to find 10 all by himself! We walked around for a little while and saw the Easter Bunny and then left. Sunday morning we woke up got ready and went to church with Mama D. After church we went to Mama D's had lunch and then started dying eggs. Drew had so much fun. He was not sure what was going on at first but he soon figured out he could make a mess! He had blue hands for the rest of the afternoon. When we were done we hid the eggs outside. He got to have his very own egg hunt. We then went to Aunt Anna's to dye more eggs and have another egg hunt. Well, Drew was so tired he slept through most of the dying and hunting. We did save him a few eggs to dye so when he woke up his great aunts could see him dying eggs for the first time. Well, I will just share the pictures now. This is just a few but you will get the idea.

Easter Pictures

We had a few Easter pictures made this past Sunday. Click HERE to see the pictures. Some of them are with his cousins, Kyle & Kaitlyn. Let me know what you think about them. Enjoy!

Also, Mr. Drew fell Saturday and "kissed" the concrete, so that is why his little nose looks like that!

Oh yeah, not sure if anyone has noticed the "ticker" on the right side of the blog, so in case you haven't we are expecting again!!! Baby Price will arrive sometime in early October. Please keep us in your prayers during this special time.

long catch up...

Well, I know it has been forever since I have blogged but a lot has been going on. The last time I was on here was for Drew's birthday. We had a great time with family and we enjoyed pizza, cake & ice cream. Here he is loving his cake!
After the birthday, we had to start planning for Christmas. This year we spent Christmas in Alabama. We went over on a Friday, spent a few days in Nashville. We went to ICE and saw the Rockettes! We had such a great time, I had never been before and the Opryland Hotel is beautiful. Here are a few pictures from ICE. If you don't already know - everything is made of... ICE! It was 9 degrees throughout the building and let me tell you - that is COLD! It was really neat.



We had a great time in Alabama and we came home the day after Christmas. I don't have a single "family" photo of us in Alabama - sorry!

Here is where we get busy! We came home on that Friday, closed on a house that Tuesday, packed all day Wednesday and moved EVERYTHING on Thursday! We had lots of help from family and it all went pretty smooth! thanks for all the help :) Oh yeah, on Wednesday night we had Christmas with my family at our "new" house!

So here we are almost two months later and we are settled in! We still have some boxes to go through and there is not one picutre hung on the wall, but none the less - it is OUR first home! I really do love it! I was always afraid me and Kevin were not going to agree on a house when we found one. We both love it and the location! Well I will leave you with some pictures of my favorite little man! He is 14 months old and walking or should I say running everywhere!
Hope life is treating everyone great!
