Peyton's FIRST Debut

Yep! That's right!!! Peyton's First Debut was last night during our Christmas Service....He did an AMAZING job!!!! And I'm going to brag about him, because leading up to this event, practice has been AWFUL, he'd do everything but practice with the other kids, and we were seriously worried that it was going to happen on the day of the Christmas Program.

Oh! But quiet the OPPOSITE!!! During the 1st run through and practice, the only practice on stage, he loved it, he marched up to his spot and sang through all 3 songs with the motions and everything, and did an AMAZING job!!! Then, the kids went back to their room to wait to go on stage, and I was worried and praying that he wouldn't get all hyper and not want to go on the stage anymore lol!!! Oh but that didn't happen!!!! Once it was their turn to go up there, Peyton went right to his spot, and then he turned to his right and guess what he saw???? HIMSELF, on this HUGE screen where they show the video of what is going on the stage, he LOVED IT!!! He would keep looking at the screen and just get so excited about it and it would make him do better! I loved it! It was so neat to see my first born on STAGE performing at CHURCH, his very first performance, I couldn't be a more PROUD mom!!!!

SOOOOOOOO what does a proud mom do, post a TON of pictures, YES! I have FIFTY photos right here on a slideshow

....and those of you that are related to us....(even our friends you can too hehe ;0)!) when you read this, I encourage you to watch every single photo because he is a HAM!!! Yes, he's just like me when I was his age, and I hear Jason was the same way too ;0) hmmmmmm lol!!! So please enjoy, Peyton, our lil man singing for our Saviour!!! :0)

28 Weeks....

Well, today marks 28 weeks for me....I honestly cannot believe it's already here, I am so thankful for God's Hand upon me and our baby boy Brayden Josiah that will join us in TWELVE weeks! (or less ;0)!!) I am enjoying feeling Brayden moving around in me, just 2 nights ago I was laying on my back and just watching him doing who knows what in my stomach and making it move like was too sweet! I loved it!!! Peyton is still very excited about Brayden arriving soon too!!! I am attaching a picture of what I look like at 28 weeks :0)!

Another picture I'm attaching, is Peyton's FIRST Christmas Parade, he was on a float for Royal Rangers, and their float actually won FIRST place! How exciting is that! Of course I could not ride on the float with him, but Jason said he wouldn't stop waving it was too cute! I did get some video footage of it, if I could figure out how to upload it to here I will, and my friend took this picture of Jason and Peyton camera's battery was DEAD, that was very annoying!!!! I will never do that again! Have a dead battery! and here is a photo of my friend Stephanie and I!!!

We actually put our Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving this year, yep, we cheated LOL, but enjoy some of the pictures of Peyton putting up HIS tree in his room, I loved seeing his little hands hanging every ornament with so much care, and he was so worried where everything should go.....He'd pick up and ornament and go, where does this one go....I had to keep reminding him, that it is HIS tree....he can put it anywhere he wants it.....then we have pics of our Family Christmas Tree....:0)

And finally I have some pictures of Peyton playing around on Thanksgiving day, in one you can see what he LOVES right now and that's Monster Jam Monster Trucks!!! He has over 30 of them, and loves to play with ALL of them!!! I didn't even know what Monster Trucks were until I became a mommy of a little boy lol and now I'm always looking to see if there is one at the store that he doesn't have...pretty sad huh?

That's about it in our lives....we are still very busy this Christmas season, we're going to our 2nd to last Christmas Party tonight, it's my work Christmas Party at the Bald Headed Bistro and Peyton is going to this one, he hasn't been to one yet....and Saturday night is our very last one!! YAY!!!!!! Then, December 19th, I am off work until January 5th, I 'm very excited about this time off...during this time off we'll be going to Texas, after we have Christmas in Cleveland, and then probably Christmas Day night we'll head to my home town of Van Alstyne, TX....and spend time with my family.....and it's going to be hard this year, because my dad's mom, will not be around.....I miss her so much!!!! Then, when we return....our first Sunday in our new church building will be January 4th!! We've waited almost 3 years for it to be built, and we're very excited about it!!!

Well, that's about it....Hope everyone is doing great!!! and enjoying the Christmas Season, with friends and family, but don't ever forget in this crazy time, the true reason we celebrate Christmas :0)!
