Santa visit

Owen was absolutely fascinated with Santa!
Kyndal looks like, "Please bring me something! I've been good...I promise!"

Bundle Up

This past week was one of the coldest on record in Ohio. This was our first layer of clothing when we went out this day. It took about 15 minutes to get everyone dressed. (Can't wait to get back to Alabama.)

Poor Kid

On our final trip to Alabama before the big move, Owen had to be bathed in his Nana's laundry room sink because he would not stay still in the big bathtub.

Thanksgiving in the Smokey Mountains

We had a great time in the Smokey Mountains on Thanksgiving weekend.
Kyndal was waiting to go on a carriage ride.

Grandma had lots of fun too!

Kyndal was perfecting one of her many poses for when she becomes a "fashion girl". (So she says.)


Owen decided to be very chatty during dinner. Excuse his manners, he is talking with food in his mouth.

All in one day

Owen thought Kyndal's empty laundry basket looked like loads of fun! (Yes, pun intended)

I just happen to have my camera in my hand from the previous picture. I was able to catch THE first time Owen pulled up by himself. He has been practicing for a week. I was ready for the crawling business, but pulling up right at nine months threw me for a loop.


Owen was very happy with himself and his new trick. All he did this afternoon was pull up on stuff. One great benefit for him, he can now reach some of his big sis's oh so interesting toys. Don't you love the diaper butt and bed head hair?

Trick or Treating

Somewhere over the rainbow...
We participated in Beggars Night (aka Trick or Treating) last night. For some strange reason, if Halloween falls on a Friday or Saturday, then everyone trick or treats on Thursday night. Go figure...? We had lots of fun!
The (Not at All) Cowardly Lion
Owen was hilarious in his costume. He was especially funny crawling around as a big ball of fur.

Visit to Pumpkin Patch

We visited a local pumpkin patch this weekend. There were many activities that I we never see in Alabama. We bought a "blue" pumpkin! I thought Owen was the cutest pumpkin in the patch!
Kyndal is flying high on the giant pumpkin!
Kyndal has now made both a snow angel and corn angel while in Ohio. This picture was taken after she made her corn angel and then decided she wanted to be buried in the corn.

Jason and Kyndal coming down the slides. That is Jason doing most of the screaming - and he wonders why Kyndal likes to be so loud!

New tricks

I have been practicing many things over the last month and in one week everything came together. I can sit myself up, semi-crawl, and I cut my first tooth the day I turned 8 months old this week! - Owen

Man on the move


Owen turned himself over from his back onto his tummy on top of the changing table. I grabbed the camera and put in on my bed and this is what happened. He continued after I stopped filming and was very excited about his new trick.

Buddies at the park

Our growing bunch: Kyndal, Abby, Gage, Sara, & Owen. I don't know if we will ever get a picture with everyone looking at the camera.

Jacob's 1st B'day















Our little cousin, Jacob, turned 1 year old! We had a blast at his party. My crafty cousin Shannon made the party hats!

Flower child

Kyndal got her face painted at the zoo. When she told the lady she wanted a flower, we thought she would have simple petals painted on her cheek. This is the masterpiece the lady created. Kyndal said it was "awesome" and even slept very still on her back in order to keep it on her face for the next day. It worked too!

My sister is so funny!


Kyndal can do the most mundane things and Owen thinks she is hilarious.

Splashing at "The Fountain"


Growing fast

We have this same pose from when Owen came home from the hospital. I can really tell how much he has grown seeing him in Kyndal's lap.

Owen gets tickled

This video is too funny!

Chris and Stacey's wedding

Everyone enjoyed the wedding, especially the proud mother of the bride.


Grandma loved showing off her new grandson to family and friends.



Gran Gran and Kyndal both looked beautiful!







Shannon and I were very proud of Stacey on her wedding day.











Stacey and Chris were so happy!

Kyndal loved being a flower girl. The job included everything she loves: pretty dress, fancy shoes, flowers, and Stacey and Chris (two of her favorite people). Before Kyndal walked down the aisle she looked at Stacey and said, "This is awesome!" I think Stacey thought the same thing.

Aunt Kay, Shannon, & Jacob's visit


Kyndal and Owen had so much fun playing with their cousin, Jacob. He and Owen already think they are big buddies.


"Jaybird" and "Songbird"


Kyndal's class will be songbirds for their recital. Jason just so happen to coordinate his shirt color on parent observation night.

Owen's sweet smile!

Say cheese


My big grin - Owen.

Look at me Grandma!


Owen and Grandma practice his latest trick, sticking his tongue out.

Be brave Grandpa!


Kyndal and Grandpa try to be very brave way down below during their visit to Olentangy Indian Caverns. Owen went into the caves also, but slept through the entire event.

Grandma & Grandpa's visit


Grandma & Grandpa enjoyed their visit. They loved chatting with Kyndal and watching all of Owen's new tricks.

Kyndal is checking on Owen.
