Merry Christmas



Getting Ready For Christmas

Here are a few pictures as Brylee and Nolan get ready for Christmas.

Nolan decides to defend himself by eating Brylee's hairbow

When that didn't work, he decided to pull it off

Whoa....Chocolate everywhere
Mmmm....thats good

Now time to decorate

4 1/2 Months and Daddy's Birthday Cake

Nolan is now 4 1/2 months old. He is getting big on us too. I think he literally smiles all the time if that is even possible. He also is rolling over from belly to back and, as of a couple of days ago, from back to belly.

Nolan made is acting debut last weekend as he had the lead roll in our church play - he has had raving reviews with his interpretation as baby Jesus. It made us proud that he could nail that role with no previous acting experience. I will try to put up a video in the near future.

He can't wait for Christmas

Brylee made Daddy a birthday cake!

Cereal for the 1st time


Rolling Over

Last week, Nolan decided he wanted to roll over. At first, I was skeptical since he would not roll over for me. Brylee did back up her Mama's claim. But he finally rolled over for me too and now we even have it on video - so I guess Julie was telling the truth after all.

He seems to be happy about it as well.

Thought he looked lonely

What did you say?

Making a funny face at Nolan

And he liked it

She decided to pull up a chair to watch him

Trip to Pigeon Forge

Last weekend, Julie, Brylee, Nolan, and I went to Pigeon Forge and stayed until Tuesday. We had a great time. Brylee especially liked all of the rides. She rode a lot of them by herself as you can see in the pictures. I really didn't think she would like most of them - but I was wrong. She loved them and didn't want to stop riding them.

Nolan was so proud of his big sister

About to go way up high

And Brylee was pooped too


2 Years Old

Well, Brylee is growing up on us. She turned 2 on Halloween and wanted an Ariel birthday cake.

Reaction to seeing her Dora cake
I know we spoil Brylee just a little but but she actually had 2 cakes. She had her big Ariel cake before opening her presents on Thursday but she also had a small, personal-size, Dora cake when we were in Pigeon Forge on her birthday. Here is her reaction when she saw the Dora cake.
