Last weekend we took the opportunity with mom in town to head over to Roswell to visit my Grandpa.  He has been having some health problems as of the last couple of month and we really wanted to go over and just check to see how things are going to and let him know that we were thinking about him.  He has definitely aged and lost quite a bit of weight since his stomach problems have occured, so it was bit of a change for us. We miss him very much and we were so happy to see that things were going not great but alright for him!
While there we went to breakfast at IHOP where Grandpa go to see the misbehaving side of Addison! It was a lovely meal, needless to say, I was stressed to the max. She calmed down after a couple of visits with Nana to some of the friends in the park that my grandpa lives in.  We then took Addison (without Grandpa) to the free zoo that Roswell has.  It is a great little park to walk around in and enjoy the outdoors.  She was able to chase a rooster, talk to a deer, pet a pony, and view a couple other animals and she was ready for the park. After the park we took her to the alien McDonalds, which is the first fast food play area we have let her play in.  I am little afraid of all the crazy kids and the mega amount of germs/dirtiness that is associated with them.  I went in with her for supervision and luckily there were no other kids playing at that time. We had dinner with Ellie and Grandpa at the Roswell version of Pei Wei which was quite yummy and then some custard for dessert. On Sunday, we of course went to church.  Grandpa did the sermon that weekend and he was amazing.  I had never heard my Grandpa give a sermon before and I was very very proud of him.  Everyone was coming up and telling him how great it was and I definitely was proud to be sitting next to him as his granddaughter!
Check out some of the pictures that we took at our picasa sight!

PS While writing this, Thomas is in the bedroom putting Addison to bed.  She is doing something and he is getting on to her.  She starts crying and saying that she wants her momma.  Daddy tells her to quiet down and she tells him don't talk to me! LOL I think we officially have a 2 1/2 year old teenager!! Oh My the fun we have!

Let's Go to Mommy's school

Well, I have been trying to post some pictures of Addison's fun day with Mommy at her school, but the silly Blogger is telling me I have met my limit of photos that can go on my blog.  773 is not alot!! LOL, so now I have to figure out what I need to do with that.

Anyways, I wanted to share the great day that Addison had with me at Smith Elementary.  She has been asking to come with me to school for quite some time and finally decided that she was old enough and ready for something so structured and more serious than just a daycare setting.  It also is a good test to see how she does for her upcoming (keeping our fingers crossed) school at All Saints Episcopal for the 3 year old Pre-K program. Since NaNa was in town, Addison could come to my school and if it was a little too overwhelming, she could bring Addy home to detox. She was very tired by the end of the day, but she did sooo well! She did all the activities with us and never protested. I absolutely loved having her there with me.  She was scared at first of one of my friends that had a little melt down at the beginning of the day, but after that was done she felt that all the kids were perfectly normal.  She even met some new friends that she loved playing with.  Enjoy the pics on picasa!

Much Love,

Happy Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Addison loved her party and had lots of sugary goodness. I could not send out the Valentine's card to everyone, so I wanted to share our family Valentine (colored card) on here. I also wanted to share the Valentine (black and white card) that Addison gave to her friends at school with a bunch of yummy kisses.

Love you to all of our wonderful friends and family and Happy Valentine's Day!

Mally's Birthday

A couple of years ago, when we adopted Mally, we decided that we would come up with a date that would celebrate her birthday and give us a marker of about how old she was. Well. today is the day that we chose for the BIG day. Today Mally is 6 years old. She is a big old mess of a weiner dog with lots of drama and issues, but we love her very much. Happy Birthday our sweet Mally Dog. Sorry you have had a horrible wintery birthday.

Much Love,
The Reynolds
