Flashback Friday

This was Palmer J's first Christmas, and we celebrated at my parents' house. They were so little!

Camden apparently opened gifts in just her undies!

Brooks fell asleep with a candy cane in his mouth!

Peej could barely grab...that was his little turtle! (Look at the concentration!)

Me & my "Santa baby"! ;-)

Happy Anniversary, Mom & Dad!

Today is my parents' 37th Anniversary!!! They are crazy and funny and wonderful all at the same time. They have instilled such great qualities in me, and in turn I am passing that down to my kiddos. (Even all the Fred jokes!)
I love you, Mom & Dad, or now, Meems & Pops! God has blessed you to have so many wonderful years together, and has blessed all of us around who are lucky to be your children/grandchildren!

EYES!

When Palmer was 2, he developed a love for Thomas the Train. He would sit and watch those little stories over and over. If you've ever watched them, you know really the only parts of their face that moves are their eyes. Palmer's favorite was when the eyes would go round and round, quite quickly. He would then turn to someone and just say, "EYES!" So I reminded him of that, and he said, "Look mama, I can do those eyes." This is what I got. Hilarious!!! (Can you say slow motion eyes?) ;-)

Seaworld on Thanksgiving Day!

This Thanksgiving was one unlike I've ever had...no eating good, homemade food, no watching a football game, no naptime. Nope, none of that...but who needs a turkey when there's SHAMU??? ;-)
Our good friends from Norman were in Orlando for the Thanksgiving week. They had originally said they would come up to our house for Thanksgiving, but then had the thought that Seaworld would be a great place to go on that day instead. We decided to go, and had a blast. The kids had never been, and I hadn't been since I was 10 (when Fred & Sherri drove us from good ol' Woo ALL THE WAY to Orlando!), so it was fun! I enjoyed all the activities...but when Shamu splashed all the folks sitting in the first 10 rows, I laughed so hard! It was awesome! Anyhoo, not a traditional Thanksgiving, but one filled with lots of great memories!!!
Brooks, Camden, Palmer & our friend Preston

Shamu Stadium...pretty impressive

The kids really enjoyed every show!

Love the trainers and all the tricks with those mammoth animals. So cool!

A Walton Family Thanksgiving!

The Magic Kingdom

While my parents were here, we made a day trip to Disney. It was a fun day, and we closed the place down....the kids are finally old enough to do that!! We started at Epcot, rode a few attractions, then made our way to the Magic Kingdom. The crowds were nice, and most rides we waited 10 minutes or less--a few we just hopped right on. The weather was beautiful, and it was a nice day to make some memories!
The crew before we rode Thunder Mountain for the second time in a row. Peej LOVES the crazy rides!

I love this pic of my handsome dad!

Aunt Jess & the kiddos...

My parents...LOVE THEM!

Brooks & Peej just outside of the entrance to the Magic Kingdom.

And here is Peej joyfully dancing as we closer to a ride he wanted to ride. He just went with the music on this one. AND he didn't know I was filming. LOVE that boy!!

Halloween 2009

So....Halloween was great, or so I was told! ;-) Tim and I were at Florida/Georgia in Jacksonville, and didn't make it back to Gainesville until 8:15, after the kids had finished trick-or-treating. But we did pull up in time to see them handing out some candy (CUTE!), and saw what was left of their costumes. My mom & dad did a great job dressing them up and taking them around our neighborhood! The Gators won, and the kids SCORED some crazy amounts of candy, and everyone was in one piece! It was a terrific day!
Camden was a Geisha Girl, Brooks was Captain Rex, and Palmer was Commander Fox (Star Wars the Clone Wars....I know what you're thinking, and I have no idea either!)

My mom said Camden must've had Madonna's "Vogue" song running through her head the whole time she took pics....that made me laugh pretty hard! Btw, Cam's costume was under $20. I thought it was adorable!

Peej looks a little tired of taking pictures...

Fred & Sherri in their holiday attire. They were cute!

Me & my mom...and yes, I have tan lines still because it's been SO HOT here!! It FINALLY cooled off today...it was beautiful!

Punkin Patch Time!

Since we have hardly ANY time for leisure activities as a family, I have to rely on pictures at the Pumpkin Patch to be taken on the annual field trip day through the preschool. Which isn't a bad thing, it just explains why Palmer is the only one with me. Still it was fun, and luckily the sun didn't appear to make it too hot. He had fun, and his favorite thing STILL to do is run ON TOP OF the hay maze. Because going through the maze would just be too easy. :-)

Palmer and his friend Ella ready for the hayride....she announces to the class each time Palmer comes in the mornings. She's a cutie!

Peej as "Cap'n Spooky!"

Awww, he's cute, and he was patient while I ordered him around in different poses.

One mom was sweet enough to offer to take our picture.

Of course, he had to climb the hay to be the tall scarecrow!

Mysterious Ways...

Ok, so I couldn't get the best of pics...we didn't have bad seats, it's just with the dark, my camera wouldn't focus too far. But seeing those guys on stage was such a thrill!!

We went to the concert with our softball pitching coach and her husband. He loves U2 like me. We were on separate computers on the phone together trying to get these tickets way back in April. So exciting! We all had a great time!!

I had to pull way back to get the entire contraption of a stage into view. It looks like a spaceship, and toward the end of the concert, the lights and smoke made it look like it was taking off! The whole point of the stage is so most everyone in the stadium can see the stage, hence the "360* Tour" name.

Here is a few seconds of "Mysterious Ways". The crowd sang every song like it was karaoke night, including yours truly. (So don't try to listen too hard!) This was one of the best nights ever!!!! I LOVE U2!!!

Flashback Friday

I just found these pics on a picture disk, and had to post them! Hey, Lacy, you remember this day??? It really was a beautiful wedding. I remember Camden being in awe of you and your princess dress. The weather was perfect, and really, everything went wonderfully! Thanks for letting us be a part of this!!
The Girl Side of the Wedding Party

Tara, will you look at Sage? Hilarious! So pretty, and yet sitting so "openly". I'm laughing right now!!!

The Walton Fam PRE-PEEJ!

Brooks and his admirers! (Shoot, I don't blame them. He was pretty handsome that night. ;-) )

And I love this pic of Miss Cams cutting a rug at the reception. Good times, good times!

I'm just sad I didn't get a lot of photos at the reception, so I could've showed Neagle, too! We all hate to take pictures, but always wish later that we'd have taken more!!

Flashback Friday

Hard to believe that this photo was taken a year ago...they look so little!!! I had them all go to their doctor checkups at the same time, hence the half naked presentation. What a difference a year makes! Happy Friday, everyone!!

Gator Game Day

My beautiful family all decked out in Orange & Blue....headed to the tailgate!

I HAD to get a picture of the sea of Blue in the stadium. Awesome!! (The orange you see were the few Tennessee fans.)

Tim is accepting an award between the first & second quarter.

The team was recognized on the field for their SEC championship last season. They also showed the grand slam Ali Gardiner hit to beat Alabama in the World Series to go to the Championship game. The crowd gave them a standing ovation. I had major chills!!!

Here's Brooks & his buddy, Luke. They both had the exact same jersey & shorts, and almost the same hat on! Cute friends!

All Dolled Up...

So Tim and I got to go on a pretty important date the other night...he was accepting an award for winning the SEC and being Coach of the Year for the SEC. So, I got my hair done (it's not as blond now, since I've washed it a few times), and a new outfit. Pretty fancy for me. Tim didn't look so bad himself. Just thought I'd post something other than kid related. :-)
Have a great day!!!
