Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to share a little Christmas Cheer with everyone!!!
You have to love a cute Santa!!!
And we are loving the excitement Preston is having with the Tree and all of the presents underneath!!
"Pretty" as Preston tells us!
Yes, he is a Momma's boy...He is snooping under the tree almost daily....trying to determine if more presents have been added overnight!

We are heading out of town to spend Christmas with our Family in Iowa and wanted to wish everyone a very "Merry Christmas"! We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family in our lives....We wish you all the very best this holiday season!!! Have a safe and happy holiday!!

Winter Fun!

Winter Fun!!!


Preston and Mommy have been extremely busy this week with lots of Winter Fun Activities....On Sunday, we went to a WONDERFUL Cookie exchange party in our Neighborhood...It was Wonderful all except there was a table full of cookies and Preston did not understand why he couldn't eat all of them....He pretty much hung around the table the entire time and begged for someone to empathize with this sad pathetic look and crockadile tears....Poor is rough!
We also had a Holiday Party this week for his friends from the BFSG group...although they really need a new name...any ideas? Preston hosted at his house and it was lots of fun....they actually sat for a decent group photo for once....
They also had a secret gift exchange...Preston loved his book and puzzles from Mallory....thanks girl!!
We also managed to talk the kiddo's into posing one more time with Mommy...My, my...what a difference a year makes!!! I can't believe we have been meeting weekly for over a year....Preston is very lucky to have such a great group of friends...(Mommy too!!)
This is pretty much the end of the "cooperativeness" for the day...After mounds of sugar from the cookie exchange at this party... they all went on a high...and went a little nutty while destroying the house!!! We love our friends, but Mommy has to say she quite enjoyed the peace and quiet when everyone went home....and Preston went down for a nap...

Turkey Day!

Turkey Day!


Our Turkey Day post is a little late...Unfortunately Turkey isn't the only thing Mommy and I got on Thanksgiving...Grampa was kind enough to share his cold with us too!!! We are on the mend though and thought it better late than never to share some of our adventures over the holiday!!! We had a great week visiting with lots of family and eating way more turkey than you need in a year!

Gramma Chris had all of her sister's over for Thanksgiving and of course, they all loved me!!! Here I am with the four lovely Auge girls~Julie, Me, Maggie, Mary and Gramma Chris.
And lots of sister's meant, lots of second cousins.....I had a great time wrestling around with them...And one night, we even went to the lighted parade....It was freezing outside!! I was pretty amused by all of the lights and not really sure what the hype was about, I let out an "oooo...and aaa" a couple of times to make mommy happy!
But as much fun as we had, I was ready to go home after five days....I just missed my bed....and my good afternoon naps!

Nana and Company are gone!

Nana and Company are gone!


Preston had another very busy weekend....Nana, Papa and friends of the family Algien and Ed were in town...and Preston LOVED the attention!! (of course) He had a great time showing them around town and taking them shopping and eating.....He even enthused gramma with adding her name to his vocabulary--NANA....unfortunately for grampa--there was no PAPA uttered....oh well...maybe thanksgiving!
Getting a little "blushed" by all the more pictures mommy!
Preston was spoiled by Nana and Papa as usual....although he had to learn the art of sharing when one of his presents was taken back....and given to Algien and Ed's grandchild instead...He is such a good boy! He was carried an aweful lot by Nana and Papa and wasn't too certain when Papa got him close to this crazy lady...notice the death grip of his hands on Papa's shoulders
Nana and Papa were not the only one's spoiling P this weekend...seems he can sweet talk anyone into reading a good book!
Thanks for coming to visit....we hope you had a good time and can't wait until you come back again!

Halloween was a Blast!

Halloween was a Blast!


Three Parties, Two Days, One Night equals a BLAST!!!! Preston now officially loves Halloween and ALL of the Candy that goes with it...I swear he is going to be on a sugar high for the next month! Although Preston attempted to say "trick or treat" it came out more as "ttt...t" That's okay because we were succesful at something else...Mommy has been working very hard with Preston on his sign language and "thank you" is one sign Preston did not understand....which is understandable...he signs "milk", he gets milk...he signs "water", he gets water...he gets nothing when you sign "thank you" because the act is done....BUT after a dozen house's---it FINALLY clicked....I go up to the house, hold up my bucket and sign "thank you" and they give me candy!!! SCORE! So on that note, Halloween was especially great....Preston can now sign "thank you" and let me tell you...he signed "thank you" all day...I think he thinks it means he is getting candy...hey atleast he is doing it!!
Here are a few of our great Halloween Pictures!!
The first Party was on Monday at his friend Julia's house (she is the pretty pink princess), also pictured are Bode the pirate, Ben the duck, Peter the sheriff, Avery the Pumpkin and Ella the lamb.
The second Halloween Party was at Preston's house with his BFSG playgroup...
they are a ladybug (Mallory), Dragon (P), Sheriff (Oliver), and the guy from Blue's Clues(Ethan)...his other friends Lucy, Zach and Luke were all sick and therefore not pictured.
The third party was a huge halloween bash with a few of our friends from the neighborhood...I seriously am NOT going to name them you can see there are a bunch and they all had a great time...I cannot believe we were able to capture this picture as well as we did....Thanks Katie and Tonya for an awesome party!
After "trick or treating" with the neighbor kids, Preston's cousins Madison and Ainsley came over and twisted his arm (or Daddy's arm) to go back out again....more loot!! Madison is Hanna Montana...and Ainsley is sporting the princess outfit Preston gave her for her birthday!
And of course, Halloween wouldn't be Halloween if you didn't get to analze all of the loot you received the night before....It was a gold mine for Master P....He especially loved dumping it out and rolling all over it as if it were a bucket full of money....
Needless to say with the large amounts of sugar ingested, Mommy decided she should probably call the Dentist to set up an appointment for Preston's first visit...Much to Preston's delight, Mommy was denied...The dentist did not want to see him until he had 8 teeth...and lucky for P, he still only has 4!

Happy Birthday Cousin Ainsley!

Happy Birthday Cousin Ainsley!
I have to give a "shout out" to one of my favorite cousin's on her Birthday...Happy Birthday Ainsley!!! I hope you had a good time last night when I helped you celebrate your Birthday!!!!
Yep, that's right--after a long day at the pumpkin patch I went over to her house for a Birthday bash and pumpkin carving fiesta!!
I love you girl!
Here we are working on the pumpkin carving...well they were cleaning it out...I was just trying to eat the insides....not so tasty in case you were wondering!
And the finished kids did an awesome job, eh? It's amazing what we really can do with sharp tools and knives!
It was a long day though and boy was I pooped by the end of it!

Going to the Pumpkin Patch!

Going to the Pumpkin Patch

On Sunday, I went to the Pumpkin Patch for the first time ever with Mommy and Daddy...Gotta say though I was a state of awe for the most part...I have never seen so many kids or pumpkins in my life....I really didn't know what to make of it all!

At first we looked at all the animals....and boy did they smell! And then we went on a walk through this crazy grass maze...

Finally we took a tractor ride out to the pumpkin patch...or perhaps just a field of pumpkins to find the perfect pumpkin for me....Finally I found one that I thought might be just right...What do you think?

Of course, I've got to pose with Mommy ...

and with Daddy.....

but then I found two pumpkins that I liked much better that I COULD I told Mommy and Daddy thanks for a ride out to the patch, but I'll take these too instead....

Finally, we went over to the Apple orchard and had the BEST cider donuts and hot cider I have ever tasted....yes it is the first time I have ever had either but they were yummy!
Can't wait to do it again next year!!

Crashing the Party!

Crashing the Party!

I crashed my first party last was for Mommy's Bunco group and boy are they a bunch a crazy ladies!!! I have never seen anything so odd....they were all dressed up in weird gettups....I just couldn't help but stare...and laugh at a few of them....Mommy looked especially odd to me!
It doesn't matter though, I still love her....and will always pose for a photo opportunity with her...even if she is silly looking!
I think they all had a great time though...Mommy looked like she was having a blast....She even won 3rd prize in the costume contest....
Way to go Mommy!!!

Just Around the Corner

Just Around the Corner

Is Halloween!!! I can't believe that it is almost the end of October and it's almost time to play ghosts and goblins! Mommy says she picked out an AWESOME costume and I am going to get to "trick or treat" with Daddy again this year!! We are going to a Party first with my friends, eat pizza and then out to find some chocolate...I love CHOCOLATE! My grandparents have already sent me some very cool Halloween gifts....Hope Mommy and Daddy don't forget to get me a present too....I sure do love all the gifts!
Well, almost all of the gifts....seems there is A LOT of weird stuff at Halloween that is aweful scary!! And Mommy and Daddy seem to enjoy scaring me a little too much!
But after careful consideration, this flashlight isn't too's actually pretty cool! One of my new favorite toys....who says you can only use it on Trick or Treat night!
Check out my new pumpkin outfit....pretty rad, eh? I wore it thinking we were going to the pumpkin patch but it rained...Mommy and Daddy say we will go soon though!
My neighborhood also thought that in the Halloween spirit, everyone should make weird, scary men with lots of hay in them....I am really not too sure why they would want to do this....this guy scares me to death...but Mommy is very proud of him....not sure why, I wish he would go away!
Hopefully I will have some cool pic's from the pumpkin patch up soon!! Thanks to everyone for all the love and presents....keep em coming!

Daddy's Class Reunion

Daddy's Class Reunion


I had a GREAT time last weekend in FM for Daddy's Class Reunion!!!
I didn't get to see Mommy or Daddy too much but spent A LOT of time with the grandparents.....and are they REALLY cool!!! I got lots of presents but one of the coolest things was my very own box of cheerios!!!!

I also got to go to the park for a picnic!!! It was very cold, but lots of fun! I even sported my first ever mohawk!!!
Pretty awesome!

Look at me on the big boy slide!
I also got to hang out with an old friend, Kirsten....She was WAY fun! She changed her first ever diaper with me (I was nice, only a number one--next time we'll go for number 2), she fed me yummy ice cream and even rocked me to sleep...she needs to come visit me sometime soon...I miss her!
I was wore out by the end of the was nice to finally just chill and watch a few cartoons....hard to get grampa to change it off the football channel, but he finally did...
Thanks for showing me a great time Gramma's and Grampa's....Can't wait to see everyone again soon!
