Look how big I'm getting!

You can you see that I really like my Mommy, I mean I really like to eat ;)

Have you all met these really neat people?

This is the best big sister ever! I just love it when she holds me so
I can get close enough to stare at her pretty face. I just love her.....

Ok now, this is the coolest big brother you will ever meet. I mean this boy never stops except to give me hugs and kisses. I try really hard to give him kisses back but sometimes I miss. It sure is a good thing he understands that I'm just a tiny baby and I can't quite keep up with him yet but I'm watching and learning so just watch world!

And Baby Makes Five....

Happy Birthday Branden Tyler King

Weighing in at 8lbs/1oz and 19 1/2 inches long on October 29th at 5:36 pm Branden finally made his entrance into our big world. Baby and Mommy are healthy and happy and doing great. Sorry it has taken me so long to get some pictures up but this 3rd kid is kicking our butts. I keep telling Todd that I don't think having a third baby is all that hard, I just think we are just too old this time around ;) Hope you all enjoy and thank you for all your warm thoughts and prayers.

Baby Update baby yet but we are progressing in the right direction. As of 11:30 this morning I had dilated to three centimeters (out of ten) and my cervix is "nice and soft"! But the best part is if I do not have this baby boy over the weekend then I am going to be induced on Monday! From my other two experiences whenever the doctor spoke of inducing both Morgan and Evan made their appearance before the induction date. So I am pretty much thinking this weekend plus I have been having contractions all day, just not consistent. So keep baby in your thoughts and prayers and can't wait to post some pictures of our new little one.

Evan's first visit from the Tooth Fairy

Branden Tyler King's Room

Thanks to the much needed help from Jeni and Dean I do believe Branden's room is finished and the nursery has come together quite nicely. There are few more touches I would like to add but I wanted to post some pictures before baby arrives. When I get the other stuff up I will try to make sure to post some pictures. So anytime Branden wants to make his appearance he has a place to sleep and a place for all his things.

Belly/Baby Update with 2 Weeks to go!

Baby Branden is moving and growing like crazy and Mommy is ready for baby to say hello to this world. At this point I can't tell which is bigger by belly or my ass.

Go Indians!

Here is our "flyer" Morgan. Morgan's little 6th grade squad is doing fantastic! The football team is undefeated and heading to the playoffs and Miss Morgan is the cutest little cheerleader you have ever seen. I will say that every time she is up in the air "flying" it makes my heart skip a beat when she is coming down. And one more thing, God help those girls if they ever drop my little girl ;)


The boy has found something else he enjoys and Todd and I have found something that finally tires him out.....well sort of. This little guy is something to watch. I really don't know much about soccer but I do know you have to get a goal to score a point, which he made six of at his first game and he is the only player out there playing defense. Of course I think that comes from home, not at soccer practice, with him Todd playing out back and he doesn't want Todd to score. Just a side note.....he hates to lose. :)

First Day of School 2007

Morgan's 1st day of Middle School (6th grade). She is doing great minor a few "tween" set backs but she is adjusting great and becoming a little miss social butterfly.
Mr. Evan's first day of Kindergarten. You wouldn't believe the change in this little guy. Don't get me wrong he still has his moments but we have a lot less than we use to. At first he said kindergarten was boring and that were learning "baby stuff" and the same ol thing. But now he seems to have found his groove and is trucking right along.

Congratulations Meghan and AJ!

Meghan and AJ's wedding was absolutely beautiful and an absolute blast! Meghan looked so beautiful. What a great and perfect day for Meghan and AJ and all their friends and family. Thank you so much Mr. & Mrs. Schaeffer for including us in your special day.

Mommy's Growing Belly

I thought some of you would be interested to see how the baby is growing. Mommy and belly are growing right along and doing great.

Morgan's Elementary Graduation

This is just something I can't believe. Our baby girl is going into Middle School. Lisa I think it is time you moved back to Georgia and teach Morgan. I'm serious. It goes against everything I believe in to release her into a Middle School world. She smart and beautiful and in Middle School that's either good thing or a bad thing or maybe both depending on which click you are asking. I remember Middle School.....pure hell. God give me strength and Lord help Morgan.

Evan's Pre-k Graduation

Is he not the cutest thing you have ever laid your eyes on? He was so proud and acted so grown up. We got tons of video of their little songs they sang and of the awards they received. I think I may have mention before that Evan got the award for being a Math Wizard. Cute and smart. Lord help me.

Evan's Championship Trophy

What a great season! Evan learned so much and had so much fun. Especially since his team did not lose one single game and he started hitting coach pitches. His coach was fantastic and the other kids and their parents made the season so much fun. We can't wait for next season. OMG....I think I have turned into one "those" parents.

The Louvre

Venus de Millo

What a sight! The Louvre was a place I wasn't sure about but ended being one of my favorite places. I can now say that I have actually seen the original Mona Lisa. How many people can say that? It really does not take a lot to amuse me. Can you tell? Anyhow, the next time you are in Paris I would stop by the Louvre an check it out.


These first two pictures was the view from our hotel room in Paris. It was just as I imagined. It was a little small but was right on the street and in the middle of everything. It was perfect.

This was a picture we took as we were walking to the Eiffel Tower. As we were walking we realized it was a lot further away than we thought. Well I least I did. Todd said he had a good idea that it was that far away. Whatever :) To make a long story short, we should have taken a taxi.

Another famous self portrait. It was the best one out of about ten. That's pretty sad. But we really wanted a picture in front of the Arc de Triumph and no one would make eye contact with you to maybe take a picture for you unless they were trying to sell you something.

Better Late than Never....

Hotel Tiel
Here is some shots of our hotel room in while were were in Holland. Where we staying was not your typical fields of green and tulips but it was still a place to remember to say the least. However, the on the train ride to Paris we saw some beautiful sites with all the farmland and tulips you could imagine but the camera was packed so we missed our on those shots. Go figure.....

Baby Boy King

Here are some of my first pictures that I had taken yesterday. The first picture is a profile shot with my arm/hand raised up to my head. Cause you know, I've been doing tons of work and I'm sort of worn out. If you check out the middle picture you can see the money shot and that I'm not a shy boy. And the third shot is sort of a spooky one but a neat one. My Mommy says she has pictures just like this one of my big sister and my big brother. Morgan and Evan sound so cool......I can't wait to meet them :)
I hope all enjoy and I will have more pictures taken in about two months so make sure to check back.

It's A Boy!!

We had our 20 wk ultrasound today and there is no mistake that this little one is a healthy baby boy. Just like his big brother did, this one too was not the least bit shy about showing his "stuff". We took Morgan with us so she could be a part of this exciting day and so she could have her own special memory of when and how she found out she was having another baby brother. Todd and were so happy she was there to share this with us. Oh, and the first thing Evan said to me when I picked him up from school was " is the baby a boy or girl?". When I told him it is a boy, you would have thought I told him he just won a billion dollars or that he was having a baby brother. It was really sweet to see how happy and excited he was. Just in case you couldn't figure out, Evan really, really, really wanted a brother :)

Where do I begin?

It's been so long since I posted that I can't decide where to I'm just going to jump right in and hope you all can keep up.

Did you all know Todd and I went to the Netherlands and Paris back in March? Well we did and we had a great time. There was not much sight seeing in the Netherlands, but the town was very relaxing and the weather was quite windy. After a week there we took a high speed train to Paris and were able to see plenty of sights along the way. I couldn't believe that little ole me from Powder Springs, Ga was sitting on a train with her hubby on their way to Paris. When we arrived at Paris, we took a taxi from the train station to the hotel (no one told us ahead of time that our taxi driver was going to be Evel Knievel) and our hotel was in the perfect location and just what we wanted (pictures coming later). During our stay, we were typical sightseers and saw everything we set out to see. We had a wonderful time but couldn't wait to get back to this great country of ours.

The next thing to happen (if we're going in order of events) is something I wish I could say occurred while in Paris (but Powder Springs is going to have to do) is that I'm Pregnant!!!! The baby is due Oct. 25th and we will know June 5th what we are having. I have been feeling great and baby is (or at least my belly) is growing like crazy. I'll make sure to post some pics soon.

Next up is the news that Evan's baseball team went an undefeated 17 -0 and won their tournament championship game! Go Angels! Evan had a great season. Towards the end of the season he was hitting tons of coach pitches and even making some plays out in center field. We just loved his new coach this season and Evan has learned so much. We are expecting a call from Bobby Cox any day now :)

Evan also graduated Pre-K last week and won the award for Math Wizard (go figure). Oh yeah, can't wait till I get the pictures up..... Evan in full cap and gown. Too Cute!!!

And our Miss Morgan just finished elementary school (5th grade) and had her big "Walk of Honor" at her school last week too. I can't believe my baby girl is going to be in 6th grade. I'm starting to feel really old now. Her big award this year was the President's Education Award in Outstanding Academic Excellence. We are so proud of our little girl.

I do believe that this wraps the last several months and I will get the pictures up as soon as I can and I"ll try to do better with the updates.

She Made It !!!!

Morgan made the 6th grade cheerleading squad at her Middle school along with her friends who tried out. Does life get any better than that or what? I mean if you are into cheerleading and all that :) Way to go Morgan! Mommy is so proud and happy for you.

Let's go Indians!

Keep your fingers crossed!

Our little Morgan has decided to try out for Middle School cheerleader. She did clinic Monday through Wednesday and tried out yesterday. She had to learn a dance, three chants, and do I believe three jumps. I mean this is some serious stuff! She did say she didn't mess up and thinks she did pretty well. We waiting anxiously for the website to update to find out if she made it. For all of you who know me you know I am more nervous than Morgan and going out of my mind!
I will let everyone know if she made it as soon as I find out.

A Night out on the Town!

Morgan took her friend Ema with her to see High Shcool Musical on Saturday night. The girls looked so cute and are growing up too fast. Help!!!! This is the girls getting ready to go inside. We parked at the Fox and took a $14 dollar one mile cab ride down to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner befor the show. Two things to mention, $14 for a mile, come on, but it was too cold to walk and second, in cas you ever try to make reservations online at the Hard Rock yeah they don't know what that's about at the actual restaurant. Seriously! That was another reason for the cab ride. We were not going to make on time for our reservation that we didn't know did not really matter. Anyway, dinner was fun and the weather was just right to take a walk back to the Fox for a great show!
Oh, and just in case anyone was wondering where wild man was, Mimi and Paw Paw kept Evan so we all could have easier time downtown. Morgan really appreciated that gift from Mimi and Paw Paw.

Too cute and had to share :)

In all of her excitement Morgan forgot what she was doing. She said later that she must have lost her mind. I just believe that deep down inside she really likes her little brother.

This is what Morgan looks like when she's really surprised after opening up tickets to see High School Musical at the Fox Theater. In case you didn't know that is "like" her favorite movie of all time. She had a great 11th Birthday and she felt like the star that she is...... Posted by Picasa

Happy Birthday Morgan !!

I can't believe my baby girl is 11 today. Better yet I can't believe I am the mother of an 11 year old. Lord help me.
