Lukie

dude, close your mouth!!

playing "bad guys" as he calls it!









Should Have Named Him George or Dennis!

the only time I don't have to worry what he is getting into!




Maybe it is because he has 3 big brothers to watch and learn from...Bowen is the most curious, mischievous boy I have ever seen! It's not that he is bad...just into everything. Take for instance the picture of him on the toilet seat..He was supposed to be brushing his teeth but instead he is eating an apple! He also loves my camera...I often find a ton of pictures that I didn't take...hence the one of Luke and Jack! He does not miss a beat that Bowen.. I used to worry about him getting lost in the mix with 3 older brothers but he can definitely hold his own. He might be curious but he is the most loving little boy. He is always coming up to us showering us with his sticky kisses and big hugs! I can't believe my baby is going on 2 and a half. Where does time go?! He keeps us in stitches whether it is his singing Pants on the Ground or dancing around the room like a little rock star! He loves music and sports. He always wants to play ball~ baseball, football, tennis, or any other sport that involves a ball. As I type this he is now jumpin' on the couch. Gotta run!

I Love MOPS!

I have been going to MOPS {mothers of preschoolers} for several years now and I am going to be sad when this season is over. I have met some AWESOME Mama's and my boys have made some special friendships too. I love hanging out with other mom's who are sharing in the same struggles raising little ones! We have a lot of fun going to Mom's Night Out, play groups with the kids, and going out in the community to serve! I feel so blessed to be apart of such a great group of women. Do you go to MOPS? If not, I totally recommend you finding one in your area~

Not Me! Monday

Too embarrassed to admit that you forgot to change your little one's diaper almost ALL day, or maybe you haven't dusted in three months..well it is time to air out that dirty laundry that you might not otherwise do....just head on over to mckmama.com to join in the Not Me! Fun!

~I did not kinda lock Bowen in his room last night and then when I went in to check on him he did not have a poopie and I did not change him while he slept. Nope, Not Me!
~ I am not thrilled that hunting season is finally over. I am not tired of hearing about deer..Nope, Not Me!
~I do not consider myself the baby whisperer and neither do my girlfriends.. I am not totally obsessed with babies either...Nope, Not Me!

Fun Family Filled Weekend

my baby is #11
We had a busy weekend here at the Woodall House...Friday night we went to Luke's basketball game at the Y and then went to Mexican with our friends David and Leslie and their kids! We haven't had Mexican in a while and it was just what I needed! Saturday morning I had a diaper shower to go to for my friend Creighton. She is having baby Cohen in just a few weeks...ohhh weee! I had dropped off my boys {minus Andrew~he was at his mom's} at my friend Stephanie's so I could go to the shower and then I picked them up and took them to my Mama's to spend the night. We had Leslie's Birthday party to go to with NO KIDS!! It was a much needed night hanging out, playing scrabble, drinking a few Fat Tires, and dancing to all kinds of music. It was so hilarious we were on the ground cracking up!! I don't have any pics cause Bowen busted my little camera and my Nikon had no battery..bummer dude. Then this evening we had Ben's brothers over for dinner. James and Sarah~ Adam, Alison, Jaden, Kirsten, Nicolas, and Adison~Jon and Tori, and Woody and Stephanie even stopped by! Ben and Jon made the BEST cubed steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, asparagus, and salad. Alison brought a yummy banana cake with homemade cream cheese icing...delish! I am worn out from an eventful weekend but so glad we got to get out and have a good time and visit with our family too!

Kinda CrAzY

That's how it has been around these parts lately.. Between getting back in the groove of school schedule and trying to get my house back in order. We just took our tree down last weekend. I know lazy us. I also have switched meds and trying to not smoke so I have not been feeling quite right the past few weeks. But I know once my Wellbutrin gets balanced I will feel much better. I have been VERY irritable and not so pleasant to be around. I feel kinda sorry for my husband and kids. I pray that I will be back to normal~ {whatever that is} soon!
Andrew and Luke are both playing Basketball this season and it has been so fun to watch. Andrew has a really good team and he has a blast playing. He loves it and he gets better every season. Luke has really impressed us on the court especially since it is his first time playing. He has been our baseball player and it is hilarious to watch him on the court. At first he was kinda a spaz but he has gotten really good at dribbling and has good ball control. I really enjoy watching my boys play sports. Ben and I both played several sports growing up and we love that our kids like sports as much as we did!
Jack just turned 5 and we are celebrating tomorrow here at the house. He loves Pre~K and is writing well and learning a lot. He loves his teachers Mrs. Carrie and Mrs. Christy and also his classmates. He says they ALL are his best friends! So sweet that JackEBear!
Bowen is almost 2 and a half and still has a bottle and paci. Can you tell he is my baby?! I think he will give us a run for our money. I often say I should have named him George as in Curious and Dennis as in Menace! He is not bad just into everything..for instance he gets in the cabinets or fridge on a daily basis and rummages for food! We {mostly boys} often forget to lock the cabinets. He cracks us up all the time with his funny antics that Andrew loves to teach him. Like putting his hands up and rolling his eyes up and saying " I don't know!" He is too cute for words and I enjoy him sooooo much. I refuse to cut his hair and I even sometimes put a bobby pin or ponytail in his hair. I just love his getting long blonde hair. I am a very blessed Mama to have 4 healthy happy boys. They often drive me crazy but it comes with the job!

I thought I would be Pregnant FOREVER!!

Five years ago today I finally gave birth to my second born son {for Ben} after waiting 2 weeks after his due date..he was supposed to be a Christmas baby but instead he decided to be a New Year's Baby..actually the day after! He came into this world very fast and swift!! He was bruised on his face from flying through the birth canal and never slowing since! He weighed in at 8lbs. and 12oz., and was 21in. long! He was my biggest baby...thank God! He was the most laid back baby ever~ Always content, awesome sleeper, champion nurser, Mama's baby, and her loves his brothers. He is always trying to out do his big ones, and always teaching and caring for his little one. He is a fantastic ball handler~baseball, basketball, soccer ball, football. You name it he can play it! I am not trying to brag on my boy it is just that he has a special gift and he is super athletic. He brings so much joy to our lives. He is always singing, laughing, or running. I am one blessed Mama to have such a sweet, handsome son in my life!
p.s.~no pics this time...not home~don't worry they will come next time~much love
