It's Been Awhile!

Well it's been a few days since I last checked in! Oops! Life with 2 boys gets crazy sometimes.

Carson had his 4 month checkup on November 4th and was 15.3 pounds and 25" long. He is 50 percentile in both height and weight! This is awesome to me because at his 2 month appointment he was only 25 percentile on his height. I'm really really really hoping he doesn't get my short gene. But our doctor said that he is growing well and was actually surprised by the amount of his growth in the heighth department! She said and I quote, "He's going to give his big brother a run for his money." Can't you just see me now in our family pictures as they get older? All anyone is going to see of me is my face because the camera will have to be angled up to get them :) Maybe they will be big AND strong and just pick up Mama for pictures. HA! That's an image!   Oh on a side note, she said he was at the drooling stange and NOT teething...I beg to differ! It's been just over 2 weeks since the appointment and guess who now has 2 teeth??? The first one broke through last week and the second one broke through during the night or this morning!

We had our first family of 4 pictures the following Sunday. I just LOVE our photographer. He actually is the photographer that we hired for our wedding, Nick. He takes great and natural pictures. He's so incredibly patient with the boys and with me! He makes sure he gets all poses and pictures that I am after. Of all days for us to wear sweaters, it was that Sunday that was 72 degrees outside!!!

Did I mention that the boys did really good! Clay got tired of the pictures much quicker than he did last time, but oh well we still got some really great pics!

Thanksgiving was nice. We did my family's feast on Sunday before Thanksgiving and then the Johnson Family get-together on Thanksgiving. It was nice to have all my family together on Sunday. It had been sometime since we were all together. Unfortunately I was a loser and had a major mommy fail and didn't take any pictures :( Thursday, we were able to be a little lazy since lunch was at 3. Wes and Clayton worked on Christmas lights since it was nice and I cooked my portion of Thanksgiving. We had a great time at Mema and Pepa's house except that we all missed Sabrina (my mother-in-law). Hopefully she'll be back for Christmas though.

I will hopefully post about all the Christmas decorations in the next day or two. Along with the fun we had with our new Christmas Tree.

Until next time,

Here I sit...

I have recently been expressing that I'd like to do a Mommy and Clayton date but Clay has wanted

NOTHING to do with it! He would much rather have a family day. He doesn't generally like to be away from his little brother, which I find so sweet and hope will continue on as they get older, but then again, I'm not holding my breath on that one!

So, Tuesday Wes had to work out of town and wouldn't be home until Wednesday. My parents suggested I try for that date with my oldest again. Much to my surprise Clayton was very excited about the idea of just the two of us going out together!

All day Tuesday I just knew that when I picked him up from school, he was going to have changed his mind. Well, he didn't!!! So, we took Carson over to my parent's house and we left for our date at Chuck E. Cheese. We had a great time! He even got to see Chuck E!

Last night Wes asked Clayton if he wanted to go to the OU game and I chimed in that it could be guys day! Clay really seemed to like the idea of only Big Guys doing something together! By the time dinner was over he had decided that he didn't actually want to go, he'd rather just stay home with me. So Wes pretty much wrote off the idea. Well this morning Clayton had once again chaged his mind, SHOCKER! That boy changes his mind more often than he changes his underwear! (Okay don't get me wrong, he changes his underwear everyday, he's not dirty!)

Wes began the search for tickets this morning and luckily was able to find some! Clay of course tried to get all of us to go to the game.....he just didn't want to leave his brother again. We finally talked him back into a Daddy and Clayton day and he was good with it when they left.

The guy that he bought the tickets from told Wes that he is often on TV because of where his tickets are located (on the South end, Row 12, right by the goal!) SO here I sit looking for my Big Guys on TV!

Where is the time going??

Fall break has come and gone. Now, Halloween has come and gone. Where is the year going?

Before Halloween we went to a local farm for a fun family day out. Chester's Party Barn has been around for a long time, but we had never been. Clayton had a nice time and Carson slept to begin with and then just enjoyed the ride around the farm.

For Halloween Clay decided to be a fireman. 
And Carson well he got to be an adorable lil' pumpkin.

I need to do something soon, maybe this weekend, to remember this point in time. I have a 4 year old and a 4 month old. I wouldn't trade them for the world. They ARE my world! I LOVE my babies!
