Pictures and Advice

How do I type in between pics??? I am so awful at this!!! HAHA

Fantabulous Christmas and amazing photographer!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas holiday and have a blessed New Year! My dear husband is a New Year's baby and we will be celebrating like we always do every year....in bed by 9!!! HA!!! We have had an awesome Christmas and Emma loved everything that Santa( along with a few other elves) brought her! We had Christmas with my dad's side of the family on Wednesday afternoon and then headed back to J-ville to open presents and wait for Santa to arrive. We got up early Christmas morning and Emma loved every gift she got! She played so hard with ALL of her new toys! Mom and I made a huge breakfast and we all stuffed ourselves silly. Then Justin, Mom, John, and I played Scrabble Upwards! I highly recommend it! But read the directions first....HAHAHA....That's another story! My amazing neighbor and inspiring photographer ran by here and took a few family pictures before they headed to their family gathering. I will post those as well. I can not tell you how good she is. She was here for maybe 10 minutes and the pictures she got were fantastic. Justin, Emma, and I stayed here while the rest of the family went back to the home front to get ready for the next family gathering Friday morning. We drove up early Friday and had breakfast at the house with mom's side of the family and then played the Wii!!! So fun!!! We spent the rest of the day being lazy and then went bowling that night! I must say I bowled pretty dog gone good, but I didn't win. Dad took both games....as usual! We stayed the night last night and Hayli was heading home today, so we said our sad goodbye's and we headed home. We got home and have been playing ever since. We took a quick walk with the amazing neighbor and then back here for more playing. I called mom and dad to check out how the drop off of Hayli went and they told us that her flight got cancelled due to fog and they are heading home. She will leave at the same time tomorrow. Please pray for her...she misses us when she's away!

So that was our Christmas...I hope yours was fun too!!! I hope you enjoy the pictures and I will post the amateur pics that I took of Christmas morning later!!! :-)

God Bless,

Someone really reads my blogs!! HAHAHA

So I was scanning through my blogs that I read EVERY day and I noticed a dear friend of mine had given me an award!! Can you believe it!! Yes 9 other people got it too, but hey, I am thrilled to be among the other 9!! The deal is, I have to now return the nominating!! I have to pick 10 of my favorite blogs and let them know they have the coolest blogs. But, they have to do the same...so don't let this go or I might get my award taken away from me!! HAHAHA
Here it goes....
1. Lisa at www.thepreachers-wife.blogspot.com is the first blog I learned about. Last year we were told our baby had cancer and we were devastated. She posted my bulletin about Emma on her blog and the outpouring of love and prayers flooded her page. We then went to church where her husband led a prayer service for Emma. Two days later we were told Emma did not have cancer!!! I have been praising the Lord and reading her blog ever since! We love you and your family so much. Thank you for being a shining light for God.
2. Deedra at www.nspiredbyfaith.blogspot.com is an amazing mother and an inspiration daily to me through her blogs! What a Godly woman and mother!! Her blogs CRACK ME UP every time I read them!! We love you and Emma is waiting on that kiss from Carter!
3. Brittany at www.crazykidteacher.blogspot.com is such an amazing example of a teacher!! She cares so much for her students and it is obvious in every post! I have known Brittany since she was a little girl. Her and her family mean so much to my family! We love you.
4. Brooke at www.alaskalovestory.blogspot.com has quite the love story and the amazing pictures to go with it!! Again, this girl is an old family friend that I love like a sister and I am so proud of. She is an amazing person who has an amazing future ahead of her. I can't wait for the wedding pics!!
5. Amanda at www.amanda-leanne.blogspot.com is just an amazing young lady. I have been keeping up with her and her baking skills for a while on here and WOW is all I have to say. I know who I'm putting an order in with on Emma's next birthday! And what a shining example of a young Christian woman who loves the Lord.
6. Deb at www.miss-corinthians.blogspot.com has been a wonderful friend to my mother and I love to read her blogs. She is a Godly woman who loves her children and guides them through the word of God. What an example for young mother's like myself.
7. Jennifer at www.jmparris.blogspot.com has become a friend from my new church home! She has a little boy Emma's age that is adorable and her stories entertain me. They remind me a lot of my own home! She too is a shining example for young mother's who want to raise their children in the word of God. Congrats to her on her wonderful news....another baby on the way!! Pray for her and her family during the pregnancy.
8. Holly at www.hollyhchapman.blogspot.com is my dear cousin who has two beautiful girls and a silly husband and TONS of hilarious stories. Her blog keeps me rolling with every new post.
9. Gwen at www.pattonsplace.blogspot.com has become a best friend of mine. She is a neighbor, a mother, a friend in Christ, and just a wonderful woman all around. She also takes AMAZING pictures!!! The wonderful pictures that I have posted of my child have all been taken by Gwen and she is fantastic!! If you need a photographer and you are in my area, please let me know and I will get you her info. Emma and her son Bryce are the best of friends and future girlfriend/boyfriend if I have anything to say about it! HA!
10. And finally Whitney at www.littleliza-jane.blogspot.com is #4's little sister. She has just started her blog, but wow is she good. And I must say, she is a cutie pie with a great head on her shoulders. Did I mention she sings like a bird!! Amazing!!! And the best thing is that she sings for the Lord!
So there they are...my ten!!! Visit their blogs and give them some love!!! Hope you enjoy!!

Justin....just give her the stinking lolly pop so she will be still!!!

O.K. so I really do try to be patient with my husband and my child, but when it comes to trying to get pictures made, well let's just say the patience leaves the room!!! I swear Emma has known from birth what a camera is and has acted up every single time one is brought out!

My amazing neighbor who just happens to be an amazing photographer came to the house Friday night to take some pictures of Emma in her adorable Christmas outfit. So, I picked Emma up from the AMAZING babysitter after work and when I got there, they had her sitting in their sink, and they were rolling her hair with a curling iron! I can not tell you how adorable it looked, and unfortunately I can't show you either because my wild child ripped the adorable bow out of her head before we got down the driveway. The babysitter did send her curling iron with me so I could fix anything that needed fixing, but I didn't do as good as she did! I should have know Emma was going to be in rare form when I tried to get her to take a nap on the way home, thinking she would be in a better mood (wrong.) I asked her to close her eyes and take her nap and she shook her head no at me. I continued to ask her to close her eyes, and I continued to get a NO! So I just mentioned maybe getting a bottle and taking a nap, and what did I get?.?.?.?.. She turned her head, closed her eyes, and pretended to snore!!! HANDFUL is an understatement. So we did take a nap, but she was NOT in a better mood. My precious neighbor had the patience of Job and took about 150 pictures. There were about 5 or 6 that we "might" could use for a Christmas card picture. There were more than that, but she was absolutely awful!!! She screamed and ran around and at one point I just said...JUSTIN...give her the stinking lolly pop so she will be still!!! Nana and Papa came in right at the end, but it was all over by then. That's when she got in a good mood though.....OF Course!!!! Here are a couple of pics from the WILD photoshoot! I hope you enjoy them!!

With Love,

Emma last Christmas

Here is the picture from last year. She was so tiny and so cute! She looked like a little scrooge who was tired of NaNa taking her picture!!

Santa Claus is coming to town....SOON!!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all doing well. It has been quite the past couple of weeks around here! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and it was so nice seeing the family! We got to spend a few days with my parents and Emma loved every minute of it! SURPRISE....She is so spoiled when she is with them!! We are still on the job hunt around here. Still no luck for Justin but we are praying that the right job come along. We have all been sick. I got my wonderful dose of it last night and all day today. I am finally feeling a little better, but I am achy all over. It is so hard to stay away from Emma when I am not feeling good, but because she had RSV when she was a baby, we can't take any chances. She is more likely to get sick because of the RSV, so I have been quarantined in my bedroom while Justin kept her in the living room. It's so hard because she would come to the bedroom door and bang on it yelling "mama, mama, mama!" Wow, that will tug at your heart strings!

We have our Christmas decorations up and Emma is finally old enough to really get excited about the lights and decorations. SHE LOVES IT!!! I can't wait until Christmas morning! She is such a stinker! I will put a pic of her on here from last Christmas. It was just too cute! I am having her picture made Friday for our Christmas cards. YES, I am WAY behind. I usually have all of my shopping pretty much done and under the tree by now. I am really starting to stress about it. I do not have 1 present under the tree and the sad thing is I haven't bought anything either! It's so crazy! Can you tell it's getting to me just a little bit???? AAAHHHH!!!! We are probably not going to get to go to Rhode Island for Christmas this year. We are just not able to do it with one income right now. We are going to miss everyone so much. Emma had grown leaps and bounds since they have seen her last! She wasn't even walking yet. I hate that we are so far away from them and don't get to see them very often. Emma loves to be around kids and there are about 19 cousins in Rhode Island that she would love to play with! We are hoping to go to Rhode Island this summer for a couple of weeks.

To all of my fellow blogger's....So am I the only one out there who hasn't bought a single gift???

Hoping your having a blessed Holiday Season!

Yes I'm Still Alive!

I know it has been a while and I am sorry. It has been a little difficult around the house. So I am writing because our family needs your prayers. Justin was recently laid off from work due to the economy problems and he is having a hard time finding a job. He has interviewed a few places and they have all said the same thing....because of the economy we just can't hire any one right now. I am asking that you pray for guidance for him and pray for me to be the support I need to be for him....even when he is doing the laundry and then doesn't know where he put anything!!!! Please remember us when you pray! Thank you,

Crazy Week!!

I hope everyone has had a great week! It has been crazy around here! School has been wild. The kids were in rare form and I am exhausted. Between school and the election I am drained when I get home and I have been in bed early every night!

Emma is doing great. She is talking up a storm now. She is constantly copying everything anyone says....so be careful around her please! :-) She is literally running around the house now. She thinks she is THE BOSS!!! I have learned quickly that she has MY temper.....uh oh!!! She is a blessing beyond belief and has completely changed my life. I am so happy when I am with her. I see so many things that have always been there, but through her eyes they are all new. I love the way her eyes light up when she sees a bird fly in the sky, or a leaf blow on the ground. I love her ooohhh's and aaahhh's every time she sees or hears something. My favorite sound in the world is when I hear....mama, mama, mama! It's usually to get her something...preferably food, but it's such a wonderful sound. When she wakes up in the mornings or from her nap she is always in a great mood. She has the biggest smile and she just wants to love on you and give you hugs and kisses. She is so sweet! She loves her Nana and PawPaw too. They can walk in the room and she lights up! She runs into their arms. She is a true blessing! Our miracle girl is showing me everyday how God has blessed me. How can we not praise him daily!!!

I have bragged enough about "Miss Priss" and need to feed her now, so I will go! I hope you all have a great weekend and keep your fingers crossed for Bama....it's a huge game! I'm a little nervous! :-)

I can't believe it's November!!

Time flies doesn't it!!! We are all doing well here. I thought I would check in with everyone and let everyone know we aer doing great. Emma had a blast on Halloween. We made the trip to the big town of Ider and visited with Nana and PawPaw for Halloween. Our spooky little flower was a trooper. We visited MawMaw Hammonds first and of course she had to show out for a while. Then we went to Aunt Paula and Uncle J.A.'s and again we had to show out. Then we headed to Aunt Maxine's house and got TONS of candy and visited with cousin Noah! He is getting so big. Our last trick or treating stop was to MawMaw Sartin's. There were all kinds of people there. Cousins, uncles, and aunts. We finally headed off the mountain and got something to eat where we met another adorable little Emma. She was a little fairy. The two Emma's shared waves and smiles and then my Emma ate about a pound of grapes. She loves her fruit.

I would also like to ask for your prayers. We found out this morning at church that a little girl who lost her mother about a year ago of cancer and who herself was diagnosed with cancer was told they found another tumor. Our pastor asked for a prayer and fasting tomorrow. Please remember Meagan B. in your prayers tomorrow. We know God is a healing God and we know prayer produces miracles. Please lift her name up every chance you get. Thank you!

I hope to have pics from Halloween up soon.

In Him,

I know it's a long post but it's also a prayer request!

First of all....I'M BACK!!! HAHAHA I know you've missed me!! Well we had an amazing time in Chicago with many wonderful moments and many sad ones as well.
I can not explain to you how proud I am of my sister. As I sat through her graduation from the Navy I swelled with pride and tears filled my eyes. She has wanted to do this for so long and finally she did! She is such a strong woman in such a now muscular little body!! I sat in amazement of ALL of the "recruits" finally becoming SAILORS and wondered how they did it! They sang songs, threw rifles, carried flags, marched and stood for over an hour and although some of them passed out from over heating, it was such an amazing ceremony. Everyone did so well. CAN YOU TELL I'M PROUD!!! I am so proud to be a Navy sister.
After the ceremony we finally got to hug our sailor...well Hayli is actually known as an Airman because of the field she is going in. She is going into search and rescue so she will be in helicopters, which I will talk about again in a few minutes. So anyway, we finally got to hug her and see her for the first time in a couple of months and it was awesome. She was happy, we were happy, everyone was happy. We got to bring her back to the hotel with us and we spent a few hours talking and listening and laughing! Just like old times...but with HILARIOUS stories. We went to eat at a steak house..of course...that's what Hammonds do!! HA!! Then we went back to the room and listened to more crazy stories before she had to go back that night.
Day two: She was able to leave the base at 8 that morning which was great because she didn't have to be back until 8 that night! She got to the room and all she wanted to do was take a nice LONG bath and shave! HA!! The little things we take for granted right!! After she did that we went for breakfast and rode around checking out the area...trying to get to Lake Michigan (another story for another post) and just cross the Wisconsin border(literally.) We made it back to the room and Hayli wanted to put on jeans and a T-shirt and just watch t.v. so we did! A little later on we went to Chucky Cheese and had a blast! Then it was time to get back to the hotel for the BAMA game....ROLL TIDE by the way!!!! Hayli got to watch most of the first half and then it was back to the base, but this time it was for our final good bye before we had to head back to Alabama. Let me mention here that this good bye had to be the hardest one I ever had to say!! I have missed her so much but I don't think I realized how much until this weekend.
O.k. so that little something I said I would come back to. Well that's where my prayer request comes in. In her last check up Hayli was told that she was anemic. I know it's very common but it's a big no-no for people who are supposed to be in airplanes and helicopters to do their job. They have her on iron pills and all that and I'm sure the next blood test will be fine but the problem comes after that. She is stuck in Great Lakes until she isn't anemic any more and once she isn't anemic they will start the paper work to get her transferred. No big deal right....WRONG!!! She has been told the paper work could take months to process. That means she is up there for who knows how long and although she isn't still in boot camp she still has to abide by the rules. She is really down and out and needs your thoughts and prayers. Please say a prayer for her. I will try my best to get pics from the graduation up as soon as possible. Thank you again and I am so sorry for the long post!
With love,

Quick Catch Up!!

So it was BACK TO WORK yesterday after a well deserved week off...if I say so myself. The kids were wonderful and I have to admit that I missed them like crazy. The problem is that as much as I missed them, I now miss my Emma 1000 times more! I got used to seeing my priss every morning running around the house talking her sweet little language and saying "mama...mama...mama" and wanting to give me her kisses and hugs. She is such a mess!

Many kids had tons of fun stories about their Fall Break. You know the usual stories like "I lost a tooth...look", "I watched the dog movie and I laughed until I passed gas" (yes I actually had one say that!!!), and of course my favorite...."it was ssssooo boring with my parents ALL DAY LONG!" You have GOT to LOVE kids! They are so honest. You know I am still hearing stories about that dog movie! HA I could sit and listen to them forever. They are so innocent and so loving and SO HONEST!!! God has truly blessed me with an amazing and touching job. I couldn't imagine doing anything else.

So back to Priss! :-) I met my neighbor and her precious baby boy and she took some pics of our kiddo's in front of a beautiful Fall backdrop. Let's just say Priss was not in the best of moods but we got a few good pics. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!! Thanks for visiting and I will check in again soon! We leave for Chicago in a couple of days to see Hayli so it may be next week before I'm back. Keep checking though...You Never Know!!

In Him,

Football Saturdays....You gotta love it!!!

I can not tell you how much I love Football season and especially when it's ALABAMA FOOTBALL!!!! So I must say it was a little scary this week. When will our players learn to listen to Saban when he says "WE HAVE TO FINISH THE GAME!!!" We were up 24-3 at the half and what was the final score???? 24-20!!!!
On another note, I live in a college town and it is the college's homecoming was today, so that means that a lot of hubby's frat brothers are in town. A couple of them came in town last night and stayed here with us. Emma LOVES company and she has been on cloud nine all day. New people to play with and then...more people came over before they headed out to the big homecoming game! I have to admit, as much as I love football season, I have never gotten into our local colleges team. I love to see the town paint their store windows in support for the team and love the spirit but I just don't care for going. Justin thinks I am nuts because I will drop everything and go to T-Town, which is 3 hours away, but I won't go 5 minutes up the road to watch the local team. And YES I did attend the local college, which kind of makes it worse, but what can I say!! So I opted to stay home with "miss priss" and hand out with her.
Well what do you know???? She was exhausted from playing with her new friends and passed out from exhaustion. So I decided to blog!! :-)
Great news....Hayli got to call today!! She is doing great and we actually get to see her next week! YEP... She's graduating from Basic Training next Friday! We are driving up to be a part of the celebration and she is so excited about seeing all of us. She told me that she absolutely LOVED all of the letters that everyone has sent. It has been such and encouragement to her through out this tough process. Please continue to pray for her...She has a LONG way to go! It is a lot of time away from us and she misses seeing Emma so much.
I hope everyone else is having a wonderful and beautiful Saturday!! I don't know about you guys but we had an unbelievably beautiful day here in Alabama!!! Also thank you to those of you who have commented on my blogs! It's such a great feeling to sign in and see you have comments! It's like getting something in the mail when you were a kid!!HA!!!
Have a blessed Saturday night and wonderful Sunday!!
In Him,

It's Friday Already????

Where has this week gone. I have loved every minute of my time with my sweet Emma!! It has truly been a blessing. I was talking to my dad last night telling him about ALL of the crazy, funny, sweet things his silly grand daughter did yesterday and he said, "She sure is going to miss you when you go back to work!" That it home so hard! After I got off the phone with him I started crying. I would give anything to be able to stay at home with her but it is impossible for us to do that. I miss her so much during the day that every time I get a chance, I call the amazing baby sitter and check on her. I'm sure she gets tired of seeing my phone number on caller ID!
So my question to all of you bloggers out there is....If you are a working mom....Do you regret working instead of staying at home with your child or children?? If your a stay at home mom...Do you wish you worked? It has been such a struggle for me. I guess it has a lot to do with all that we have been through with Emma and that I feel like I am missing so much with her. Often I feel like I am letting her down as a mother by not being there to teach her new things! Will she be upset next week when I drop her off and leave??? I guess I am starting to ramble, so that's usually my cue to sign off!!! I hope you have had a blessed week and I also hope I can find time to blog!! HA! I know it won't be everyday!
Remember me in your prayers that I can be the mom, wife, and teacher that God wants me to be!
With love,

Thursday....I'm pooped!!!

Well it's 10:30 and Emma is already down for her nap so that means one thing....We were up EARLY this morning and playing hard! She is such a stinker. I could hear her in her room, but she wasn't crying so I gave her a little time to play (I really just didn't want to get out of bed yet). She played for about 15 minutes with her toys in her crib. It was so sweet to listen to her talking and squealing and playing. I finally couldn't take it any more and went in there to get her. When I opened her door she had both legs through the rails of her bed and was looking through the bars like she was in jail, but she was laughing and playing. I wish I had my camera because it was so cute.

We played in the living room with the abundance of toys and ran around and around the living room and kitchen and then we started winding down. She was exhausted and couldn't go any more. Let me just say...WE PLAYED HARD and I am thinking I may need a nap myself!!

On top of it all...WE HAVE ANTS!!! They have found their way back into the house and are everywhere. That's bad, but the worse part of it is that I am allergic to ants, so I tend to freak out when I see an ant! I just pray that Emma doesn't get that allergy from me! It makes it hard to spend time outside in the yard, but we do it anyway! So if anyone has any suggestions on getting rid of these things, please let me know!!! My hubby thinks he is the exterminator...Hello....we still have ants!!!!!

So yesterday we went shopping after Emma woke up we went shopping. I am so proud of myself. Not only did I not by one thing for myself, but I hit 3 shops in an hour!!! Pretty good huh!!! Isn't it amazing what moms are capable of doing. I swear we should get to wear super hero capes all the time!! HA!!! I love my husband to death, but I would like to be a fly on the wall and see him one WHOLE day with Emma, and have to take her somewhere!!! I have a whole new respect for my mother!!!

Before I go I wanted to share a picture that was made at the pumpkin patch last weekend. It was my favorite!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!! She LOVES her Paw Paw!!!

Wednesday...Hump Day...So Sad!

Well it's Wednesday and I am exhausted. You know how excited I was about Emma sleeping in yesterday...Well "Miss Priss" decided to take another late nap and was up until 11:30 last night. HELLO.....I am SO Old. I can not stay up past 10 any more. WOW I can't believe I have admitted it...I am OLD! So Emma and I have played with baby dolls and purses and Elmo all morning long and then we get a phone call from very busy husband asking what we would like for lunch. TOO SWEET! I miss getting to see him during the day. When he gets home in the afternoon we are so rushed to get supper done, spend time with Emma (outside if possible), and bath time, that we don't have time with each other. Any way...back to my day with my girl! So while Justin was here she started rubbing her eyes and whining a little bit which is BIG CODE for nap time. She crawled up into Justin's lap and started waving at us. She was telling us night night. She is such a smart little mess isn't she!!! He walked her to her crib and she rolled over and has been asleep since. Can you believe her???
I can't believe the week is half way over. I have loved every second with her. She gets jealous of me holding her baby dolls...PRECIOUS!!! She climbs up in my lap and gives me great big hugs and kisses. She stuns me every day with new things she has learned. I miss her when she is napping, and I can't get enough of her when she is awake. I love being Emma Kate's mommy! I hope you are having a blessed day!

Tuesday with Emma!!!

So today started out with a blessing....we slept in!! WOO HOO!!! She didn't wake up til about 10 minutes before 10 a.m. Yes you heard me...the child who is like clock work at 6:15 every morning finally slept in for mommy!!! Once she was awake she wouldn't let me out of her sight. She was SO clingy, but I must say, I loved it. She didn't want uncle John, JUST MOMMY!! Then I realized, hey I need to get some things done in this house, but she didn't care. She just wanted me to hold her. So we played for a while and the amazing baby sitter and her crew came by (Congrats to Derek for passing his permit test) and entertained her for a while. After they left she was acting tired and rubbing her eyes. I thought there was NO WAY she was sleepy already. WRONG!! She has been asleep for about an hour and a half and is still snoozing. So I was able to get the kitchen and living room clean and I thought I would take a break to let you know the latest with "Priss." Things are going well and we are still having a blast. I better go while I still have a chance to get some things done. Updates later!!!With Love,Kelli

Fall Break...Mommy and Emma Time!

So this week is our Fall Break and boy did I need it. I think I just missed spending time with Emma. It seems like every time I pick her up from our amazing baby sitter ( more on that later) she has learned something new or she has grown up a little bit more. Don't get me wrong, I love my job. I feel like I am so blessed to have the job that I do, but I miss watching my baby grow up. As I am typing right now, she is sitting on her toy car and is yelling at me..."Hi mama...Hi mama...Hi mama!!" and she is waving her little hand in her little pageant wave. TOO CUTE!!! I could just kiss her to death right now.
We went through so much trying to get pregnant, and I always knew that it would be on God's time, but I wanted a baby so bad!! Well he blessed me with not only a MIRACLE from GOD, but a child that reminds me how amazing HE is every day!! She has such a great personality and is so funny.
We had the priveledge of spending the weekend with my parents and she had us laughing so hard all weekend at her. From sitting like pawpaw to walking around in her prissy little way, and even telling us ?something? with those little hands just a waving, she lights up my life. We are truly blessed and I am so fortunate to get to spend the entire week PLAYING with my baby girl!!! I'm sure there will be plenty of stories, and hopefully I will learn how to put pics on here! Have a blessed day!

Hello Blogging Friends!!!

Wow!!! I finally did it!! I have finally joined the world of blogging!! I am an avid reader of blogs, but I never felt like I was worthy of blogging!! HA! Just kidding...I felt like I wouldn't have time, but I'm gonna give it a try!! I know I will have plenty to blog about with my almost 15 month old running around the house and teaching a classromm of 2nd graders...not to mention a husband that gives me plenty of stories all by himself. Well I hope you enjoy the blog, and I hope I figure all of this out! If you have any tips for me....PLEASE send them my way!!!
