Christmas 2008

Greetings from the blog slacker...... welcome to the Christmas pics (or some of them at least). I am pretty disgruntled with blooger right now due to the fact that adding multiple pictures on a post has become quite a hassle (I won't bore you with the details).

Anyway, here is a nice selection of them (Uncle Mack's and Karlyle's v-tech not included in this round).

Our tree.

Savannah helping with the decor.....
and being very excited about it.
Christmas Eve at the Mason's.

Santa Claus showed up at the Mason's. This is Santa holding Emily.

Mema and Emily.

Coercing Natalie to go up to Santa Claus, who just happens to be terrified of him, took a Reese's cup.

Me and Savo cleaning out her stocking.
(these big gaps in between the pics are part of the problem with blogger right now).

Savo in her new chair.

Savo got a new tricycle from Uncle Ron...... see response below.

Christmas Morning

The easy bake cupcake oven from Poppa.

Santa brought Savo cake and toys, as requested.

This collage was from Uncle Matt (mack) to dad from their trip to New York. You should have seen the packaging this came in from my brother..... hilarious.

Granmomma's build-a-bunny to Savannah.

The new address plaque, now that the house is officially ours.

Two of the blogs new readers (jaynes and kirkland) will appreciate this....
Traci and revon gave us filets for Xmas.
This is Lynn saying "BBeeeeeeeefffffffffff"

That is all for now...... check back later. And thank you everyone for all of our gifts.

4 States and a District Later, Two New Babies Join the Family

Around 8 months ago, Lynn and I found out that both her sister and my brother were expecting new babies. Even more crazy was that they were both due within a week of each other. And here we are with two new babies in one week...... both healthy and happy. One boy, one girl. One Monday, one Friday.

Emily Guin came first in Rome, Georgia on Monday, November 3, 2008.
Check out the post below on Emily.
Four days later, Carter Osborn was born in Alexandria, Virginia on Friday, November 7, 2008. Here is Poppa Gary holding his new grandson.

Dad and I arrived on Saturday just in time to accompany Carter in watching his first LSU game, which also happened to be his first Alabama game. Fortunately for him, he slept through most of it. It was bad on both sides.
For more pics and video, check out Matt's blog..... it is awesome.
Back in T-Town tomorrow to see my girls....... hasta.

Savannah's 2nd Birthday Party and Pics

First of all, lets start with the ridiculous......

The first pic is of all of the beautiful (and plentiful) gifts that Savannah got for her birthday. Of course, they are all appreciated and she has enjoyed everything you see here. We appreciate everyone that came to the party and/or sent gifts. But seriously..... I am glad we got a bigger house.

The pile of gifts...... looks more like Christmas.
The fishing was a big hit at the party.... here is Savo and Natalie looking at a catfish in the bucket (we threw him back).

Uncle Ron helps Brady with the fish he caught.

Pasha and the elusive Mary Hollis (she temporarily went missing later in the evening).

Savo explaining something.

The "jumpy thing" as it was named by Savannah was a big hit. Thanks to Pasha and Brian for lending it to us.

Almost all of the girls

Peace out..... the party was done. We were tired.

Me and Savo

The day before Savo's party, Lynn and I hired a photographer to take her 2nd birthday pics. These are some that Granmomma caught as the shoot was going on. I really like this one.

This is Savannah about to say "no no no!"
This is Savannah finishing saying "no no no!"
The fam in the backyard.

Savo and Lynn
Lynn made the beautiful headband Savo is wearing (she has also gotten really good at making hair bows.... look for them at a store near you).

"Go dis way."

These pics were taken in Gulf Shores..... Savo shares her mommy and daddys love for the beach.

More pics soon...... thanks for checking in on us!
