January

We went to eat at a soup and sandwich bistro in Alma.. (Jim and Gay ate there one time on their way down and gave it rave reviews) so we always eat there when we have to travel towards Ft. Smith. It has good sandwiches and all… But my favorite thing about this place is the homemade PIES!! They have a chalkboard as big as a wall, they write all of the pies that they have made on that day and you pick one. But it really doesn’t matter which one because they are all so good. It’s called the Red Rooster.

Here is Cash at the RR pulling a “Moe and Curly” move on Scott:

We had a late Christmas get together with Anne Marie and Ian at uncle Roy’s house a couple of weeks ago. Norma was flying in from somewhere so there was nobody to cook dinner so we went to La Huerta down the road.

Here is Anne Marie and their daughter Vivian:

Anne wasn’t too excited about having her picture taken 🙂

And here is Ian with the 2nd cousins:

Cash and V. Play well together but they live in Tulsa so we hardly ever get to see them.

Me and C-bear have gone on a couple of different mommy and Cash dates recently.

First was the library:

Playing with puzzles::

A couple of days later we took advantage of a rare warm day in January and went to the park:

Swinging:

Then it was Momma’s turn to swing (Cash pushing me) :

After the park we went to a burger place called Curts Place just down the street:

Yesterday we went to Chuck E Cheese:

And then it was off to the Springdale Youth Center for some fun time at Operation Recreation. He had so much fun!:

Cash’s turn to be under the parachute!!:

Whew!!!! We’ve been busy!!! 🙂

Love y’all!

Hmmm.. Lets see here..

What’s first? Lets see….

Here’s Cash in the new pjs that Lori got him for his 2nd bday:

Watching “Cars” (the movie) for the first time:

Some random pictures of my big front teeth:

I never had braces and I’m so glad that I didn’t. I love how my teeth are big and bucky and a little imperfect. They have character. I’ve learned to love them the same way that I am learning how to love my curly hair.

Me and Cash rocking:

This next picture may disturb some of you. If so, don’t look:

Scott brought out his Papaw’s antique shotgun (completely un-loaded– he made sure about 4 times) and Cash wanted to hold it. When he placed it in Cash’s hands, he made a “pow” sound. Hence the look of pride on Scott’s face:

Cash, doing some dishes:

Mom and dad bought Cash a flying helicopter for Christmas. And, as most things go in our household, the piece that made it fly only lasted about 5 minutes before it was broken. So Scott decided to rig the helicopter up to his power drill and make it fly:

And last but not least, Lola with the troublemakers…

Sorry for such a lack of words.. But I’m kinda busy being strapped to my little man these days. Maybe when he is 14 I will have endless hours in the day to write and write about who knows what? But, by then, nobody will probably care anymore. Haha..
