Family Pictures part 1

We had some family pictures made back in June. We had not had a family pic since Mags' newborn pics. A lot had changed in two years. The pics were also going to be Mags' two year pics but they kinda turned into Gabe's 4 1/2 year pics. He was just a little poser for Brooke. (Brooke is a girl from our church. She did a great job. It was soooo hot and the Mags did not want to be there!) Here are a few of Gabe's.

I had her take a couple of Gabe in his pirate boots. He has out grown them and I just wanted a memory of him in them to keep.

I LOVE this one!!!!

You can find Brooke @ www.brookebusby.com

Fall Soccer

Gabe is really starting to like Soccer this year. Jake is his coach and he goes really easy on all of them. Also Gabe gets a little extra attention that he really needs. He has wanted to play soccer. I asked him over and over before we signed him back up. But when he got out there he acted like he didn't want to be there. But at Fridays game he had a turn around ( I think?!) Jake patted him on the bottom one time and said "Run Gabe run" and he took off!!!! He ran as hard as he could the rest of the game. I think he realized that he could keep up and play with the rest of the kids if he only try! He has still not scored a goal yet but I just know it will happen this season!

Hello Kitty Hello Bama!

I found this shirt in a little shop down in Cullman a few weeks ago and Mags had to have it! She loves Hello Kitty and we love Bama. We ask her now what an elephant says and she will say "roll tide". Her daddy is so proud! We have waited so long to hear her say that!!! And it is just in time for football season!

Dancing Princess....... Or monster!

Maggie had her first dance class last night. I think she had a good time. Yesterday morning we pulled into work and she started crying. " I dance I dance!" She remembered that we told her she was going to dance that day. She LOVES her tap shoes!!!She would wear them all the time if I would let her. She came out of dance showing me how she taps her foot.
There was about 6 two year olds in the class so there was a little crying. Maggie even had her turn at crying but as soon as the tap shoes came out they ALL stopped crying!!!
Monster.......Well, when we got home we went up to talk to Granby, Maw maw and Uncle Greg. While we were there talking about dance and Maggie being a "pretty little dancer" she started crawling around on all fours like a monster. Greg looked at me and said "I don't think you are going to have a little dancer". LOL I know she is rough and tough. And I have always wanted a girly girl but I will be happy with what ever she wants to do. I would love to watch her play soccer or softball. Maybe she can have the best of both worlds! But for now I am going to push the girly things.

Gabe and the Devil

Gabe got put in timeout the other afternoon. While he was sitting there I talked to him about what he did to get put in timeout. In the end I just told him that he was just being mean.
This is how our conversation went after that.
Me: "Who does not like for you to be mean?"
Gabe: (He just pointed up to the sky.)
Me: "That's right! And who wants you to be mean?"
Gabe: "The Devil!"
Me: "That's right!"
Gabe: "That was just the Devil working on me!"

His understanding of God, Jesus, Heaven, Hell and the Devil just amazes me sometimes!
