Santa Time Already?

I can't believe it is already time for Christmas. Where has this year gone? Seriously... Well...Phillip and I took the boys to see Santa at Miss Cayce's last Thursday. I have to say that Parker has caught on to the whole Santa thing very quickly. I am not so sure if that is a good thing or not. Now at every TV commercial yells..." Mommy I want that, tell Santa I want that." Apparently he thinks Santa is going to bring him everything he wants. Needless to say Parker was very excited to get there & tell Santa that he wants a Big motorcylce, a trash truck, some tools, a boat with a real motor and a Wall-E movie for Christmas. ( Boy is my list big lol.) To our surprise when he sat on Santa's lap he got a little nervous. All smiles and excitement went to shyness and he couldn't wait to get out of there. Beckham on the other hand didn't know the difference he was all smiles. Here is a photo...

As you can see the boys also wore their matching outfits...someday they will be very upset with me I know. But I couldn't resist. It is just too cute.

Some good friends of our met us there as well. We have taken the kiddos together to see Santa for 3 years now. Here is Parker and his sweet friend Leslie...

Adventures with the Knight Family

Well Phillip and I decided to give blogging another try. We tried it last year but got busy and forgot to post after Christmas. So here we are again, one year later. Since our last post We have added a new addition to our family. Beckham Ross Knight. He was born on July 28 of this year. We are so blessed to have such a sweet baby boy in our home. We could not have asked for a sweeter more laid back child than this. He is amazing and the apple of his momma's eye.

Parker is now 2 and half. And we are potty training. Enough said. Each and every day is a whirl wind of adventure with Parker. He is definitely our spirited child. In his own little 2 yr old world he is the ruler. Everything must follow suite with his demand or command. He keeps us on our toes. But we would never trade him for anything. He has grown us alot. He is also very good at melting our hearts. He gave me a big teddy bear hug the other day after a spanking and told me that I was his "prettiest girlfriend ever". now how do you scold a boy after that. I love being his prettiest. :)

Phillip is still going to school and working harder than ever. I am proud to say that through these tougher times he holds his head high and knows that God has a plan and will always provide. I am so proud of him for working as hard as he does and staying dedicated to his goals. It's looking like he will be graduating in May of 2010. Thank You Jesus! He has done and is doing an amazing job balancing both his career life and his family life. He is an wonderful husband and the best daddy to our beautiful children. Him and Parker are the best of buds. They lay together every night before bed so they can sing their "special songs". (One night I will have to film it and post it.

As for me I am staying busy raising these amazing boys God has entrusted me with. It is such a privilege to be home with them daily teaching them and loving on them. I am also so pleased to say how blessed I have been with the great friends God had brought into my life. With out them sometimes I feel like I am going to just throw in the towel and quit; but everyone is so encouraging and thoughtful. Thank you all for always being there for me.

Enough on us... I hope this time we can stay committed to this blog so every one will know what crazy things our family is going now.
