Venice Beach and the Rose Bowl.....

We had so much fun taking Tom and Nancy to Venice Beach....Nancy had never seen the pacific ocean and we found the most "colorful" beach in CA to show her! The board walk didn't fail to give us a peek into the crazy life of beach people, we even saw a two-headed turtle and a guy that would let you staple a dollar to his body...ouch!
Kyle and Saige had them pose by the water....isn't it beautiful?


Still smiling.....

Until a wave came in too close and got them all wet!!


The fam....and Joel doing what he does best...being a clown!!




On the way home we stopped by the Rose Bowl in Pasadena just to take pictures in front of the stadium....ROLL TIDE!




Kyle taking a pose!




My two boys....I sure love them both!
(I sure have a hottie husband...ha ha!)



Fun stuff!!




Hard core Bama fans.....I love them all so much!

Grampy and Grammy Visit....YAY!!

Grammy and Grampy Booth are here in sunny CA (well, not really...but that is another story!) visiting us and we are having the best time! Bodie is loving all the extra attention he is getting and soaking up the love! Unfortunately, we have all had weird issues during their visit...poor Grammy fell and broke a rib on her way here, I had to go to the emergency room for extreme rib pain that turned out to be pluerisy caused from bronchitis and Saige has been home all week with a nasty case of pink eye....what the heck??? Seriously, we hardly ever get sick and then we are all being hit hard....hopefully the worst is over! In spite of all that going on, we are really enjoying visiting with family....we love having them so much and will miss them terribly when they go home next week. We are trying to snap up a lot of pictures while they are here and these are the first to make it to the blog!! Hope you enjoy...(Kelly...ha ha)



Little Bodie sitting in his new favorite spot....Grammy's lap!!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture...it's a little blurry...but, can you say....wadda a face?!!


I love this picture too....I love his little hand on Grampy's shoulder and he kept it there a long time!!


SO cute!!




Look at his hand on his cheek...so sweet!


Grammy taking a turn at feeding Bodie his lunch!!




He can't decide if he's in the mood for more!!



Yeah, one more bite would be great!!


Now for nappy time....he loves being in Grammy's arms!



On our way for yogurt!!




Grammy and Grampy with their new little grandson....so glad they could come out and be here with us!


Grammy and Grampy...on a "Bodie high"!!!!


Here's a little video of Grammy giving Bodie a pony ride!!

Bodie is 6 1/2 months old!!

Oh my gosh, can he be ANY cuter? Ha ha....we love this little kid so much....he has such a cute and sweet personality. He charmed the pants off his new Dr. She was all over him and kept commenting about his eyelashes!! Here are his stats....he is 12 pounds 4 oz. (he fell off the chart again, but she isn't too terribly upset about it, she just wants us to supplement a little with formula and yogurt) He is 25 inches long (a whopping 5th percentile...ha ha). He's meeting all of his milestones and rolled from his back to his tummy last night for the first time and he is such a scooter! He loves bath time and LOOOOVES to be nakey!! He perks right up when we take his clothes off!!! I'm trying to wean him from waking up and nursing during the night, the Dr. told me he was using me as his pacifier because he would only nurse for a few minutes and then go right back to sleep...he's doing pretty well with the change, I just pat his tummy and tell him "night, night, Bodie" at first he was like "yeah, right Mom" but, he's getting that he needs to go back to sleep and is giving in slowly!!

We think he is the sweetest thing to ever walk this earth, but we are biased!! I try not to take anything for granted...each day is just a huge blessing with him and I want to remember everything and just enjoy his sweet presence in our home!

Here is a little video of him giggling! He loves his daddy and he can make him laugh very easliy!

New Year......New Post....Finally!!

Wow, where to start??? Life with our little boy continues to bring us so much joy! He is now 6 1/2 months old and is an active little guy! His new trick is to put his feet in his mouth every chance he gets! He doesn't like it when we take things away that he shouldn't have...i.e, paper of any kind, the remote control, etc! He's starting to creep when he's on his tummy and likes his tummy time now. He's actually starting to outgrow some of his clothes! But, he is still able to wear most of his 3 month old size clothes....he's a wee little thing, but we love it! His 6 month well baby checkup is next week and we'll find out if the Dr. is okay with his growth. Even though he is so small, he sure loves to eat! We started fruits and vegetables a few weeks ago and he loves it all! Sweet potatoes and pears are early favorites!
We've been in our new house for almost a month now and we STILL don't have our stuff, but we are surviving! But, I'm here to tell you...air mattresses aren't for the weak...ha ha!
We are hoping to get our shipment next week.

Yum, yum!


I love his little face in this pic.
He really likes his exersaucer and attacks the toys with gusto! His favorites are the pig and sheep.
He sure is a sweet little gift....we enjoy every single moment with him and love to see him grow and change every day.
