Toad Suck,1st Mother's Day & The Duggars!

I said I was going to try to catch up with my posts.....well here it goes...

TOAD SUCK 2010 was so much fun for our family! Especially since Drake got to participate in some things. There are so many things that I could write about Toad Suck but the main thing that happened was Drake winning his first trophy!!! On Saturday morning we took Drake to compete in the 12 month and under Baby Crawl Race! He won his division!! There's a funny story though....

Drake on the way to the race! He's ready to go!

Right when we got there a tain went by. It scared him half to death! The baby pavillion was RIGHT NEXT to the railroad tack. Look at those big tears. :-(

On your mark....Get set....


ummmmm....GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Drake GO! Seriously son....GO!

Oh well! So maybe Drake didn't even budge from the starting line but he still won the trophy because he was the only boy in his age division. :-) We have so much fun in spite of our son's uncompetiveness (is that even a word?). We made memories!!

We are all SO PROUD of you Drake!! We know that you let that little girl win. :-)

Another fun thing Drake got to do was look at the animals in the petting zoo. He LOVED it!! He just stared at all the animals.

and noooo....Drake did not ride the pony this year. Maybe next year! :-)


My first Mother's Day was so special! It started with Drake and Luke bringing me my cards. Drake made me the sweetest card and even signed his name on it. So sweet!!
On Saturday morning the boys took me to eat at Cracker Barrel for breakfast. It was SO good! The rest of the day was spent shopping. They got me a new dress and some shoes to go with it. I wore my new outfit on Sunday to church (see in pictures below).


Mom and I went to a rally for Scott Wallace in LR last week. Scott Wallace is running for congress. Anyway, the Duggars were there and we were able to hang out with them and take some pictures. The event was very laid back and I enjoyed talking to some of the older Duggar girls for a while. They are super sweet. Most of the time we hung out with Jill and Jordan. Drake and Jordan had fun playing together. Here are some fun pictures we took....

I am a pretty avid watcher of the Duggars (19 and Counting). It comes on every Tuesday night at 8:00 on TLC.

I still have quite a bit of catching up to do on my posts. Hopfully I can get pictures up of our trip to Branson soon! Have a blessed day!!

9 months!!

Actually Drake turned 9 months on April 30th. But better late than never!! The last month has been really crazy with us moving from Benton to Conway. We are finally moved in and settled. There have been so many things that have happend in the past month that I want to blog about. I am SOOOO behind!! Hopfully I can get caught up.

Anyway, Drake wants to share some things that he's been up to lately....

Hey guys! It's Drake! I turned 9 months old on April 30th. I have been up to so much lately.

First of all I went to my 9 month check-up the other day and the Dr. said I was perfect! I weighed 21 lbs. 7 oz. and I was 29 inches tall. He told mommy to keep up the good work!

My favorite thing to do nowadays is get into EVERYTHING! I crawl everywhere now and fast! I pull up on tables, chairs, toys, people, etc... Nothing is out of my reach! I WILL find a way to get a hold of what I want. Mommy and daddy have had to take everything off the coffee tables and nightstands so I won't hurt myself. My favorite things to get into are electrical cords, phones & the TV remote. Mommy and daddy won't let me play with any of those things though. I don't understand! They keep telling me this word, "NO" and I'm not sure what that means so I just smile at them and giggle a little bit and that seems to distract them from what I was doing. Ha! I got this figured out!

I love to go 4-wheeler riding with daddy. Mommy won't let him go very fast though. She yells at us, "BE CAREFUL! GO SLOW! HOLD ON TO HIM TIGHT!" Daddy and I just laugh at her and take off! I LOVE doing stuff with daddy!

I also love my new John Deere tractor. I like to push it around the house. I also like to honk the horn.

I pretty much eat all big boy food now. I LOVE fruit! Especially mandarin oranges. I also LOVE sweet potato french fries from Market Place Grill! I love spaghetti too!YUMMMM! I ate my first pancake at Stoby's last Saturday. It was so good! Let's be honest...I pretty much love all food! I will eat whatever mommy and daddy put in front of me. They call me a garbage disposer. I still like mommy's milk the best though. She keeps saying we need to start weaning me. Whatever that means!

I only take one nap a day now. I usually take it right after lunch and then sleep for about 3 hours! I love it and so does mommy! I still go to bed at 7:30 p.m. and wake up around 6:30 a.m.

One of my favorite toys is my basketball. I love to throw it, bounce it and slap it with my hands. It is so much fun!

Mommy and I play outside everyday when the weather is nice. I love spending time outside with mommy. We talk, laugh, make silly noises and play games. She loves me so much.

Mommy got me a little swimming pool so I can play in the water outside. I LOVE IT!!! I splash and kick my feet. It is a big hit so far! I am ready for gigi and papa to get the big pool ready to swim in though! Mommy and daddy bought a raft for little guys like me to get in the big pool. I can't wait to try it out!

There are so many more things I have been up to the past month. Mommy will have to post some more stuff later.

That's all for now!
