John Wayne

Ok, I know all boys seem to go through a "cowboy" stage, but I think my John Wayne hit the hardest out of my boys.
He got ready for church, put his spurs on his boots and proceeded out the door. "Uh, John Wayne, I dont think Jesus wants us to wear spurs at church." I told him. Oh my goodness! That was the fight of the week. And finally we got him convinced that when he comes home he can put them back on. He was later fine with that.
So the next day I took these pictures of him and it seemed to satisfy him for a little bit seeing himself on the camera.

Big Man in a Little Body

Heres my sweet baby. The boys found this hat for him and I just had to take a picture. He looks so much like his older brothers. When he was born he looked more like Jr. Red, now I think he is favoring towards T.T. more.

Diaper Cake

This is the diaper cake I made for Whittney Solomon. I wanted to make a "John Deere" theme but the ribbon selection here in Taylor is pathetic. So this is what it ended up like. "Country Sunflower" theme don't you think?
There is a huge baby wash inside it and little lotions and washes, pacifiers, and diaper cream that I stuck on it also. Hope she likes it...

Outstanding Citizenship Award!

T.T. was choosen from his kindergarten class to recieve the Outstanding Citizenship Award!

He looks really thirlled...doesn't he?

He was supposed to go up infront of the whole school when his name was called and stand by his principle with the other kids. It was really hard for him at first cause he is extremely shy but he did it!

Heres a shot from behind him looking at the other students.

Happy Birthday T.T.!

Heres Jr.Red and John Wayne eating Birthday cake!

T.T. turned 6 on September 19th. We are so proud of him! He is such a good boy!
