Santa Clause is coming a little early, to town.......

Brody's FAVORITE song right now is ABC song and JINGLE BELLS!!!!! I have it on repeat in the car and if I change it he says "No mama! Jingle Bells! that one" he even has me sing it to him when he goes down for a nap ;) Here he is probably singing it.....Peppermint and sugar brimmed glasses filled with hot cocoa ice cream and peppermint ice cream drizzled with hot fudge...mmm
Santa saw Brad at church and figured he needed a new white shirt

Making cookies for Santa and Brody making a scary monster face

On Sunday, good ol' St. Nick decided to come to Nana and Papa's house and drop off a couple of teaser gifts before Christmas! Brody was excited but just a little nervous at the same time. We started off the evening with making some Christmas cookies for Santa, not knowing he was going to come that evening ;) then we had a yummy roast beast dinner with the family and I volunteered to make dessert which was a peppermint and sugar brimmed glass filled with hot cocoa ice cream, peppermint ice cream and drizzled with some hot fudge. Santa came and passed out a few gifts to the kiddies and told them how important our families are and the true meaning of Christmas! Brad and I also got to open a few gifts from the fam but most of all we had a FUN and FESTIVE night ! We will be leaving town tomorrow to spend actual Christmas with my family and then we are going on a cruise with 9 of our friends to Mexico! Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Hopeful New Year!!!!!!!

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree

Yesterday we FINALLY decided to get our Christmas tree with all the trimmings. Dada picked the tree and the lights and Brody and I picked the ornaments. Mister had fun placing the balls oh so "nicely" in the tree, good thing I was there to help. Then to top it off, Dada held him up and he knew exactly where to put the star, how festive!

12 more days!

HO HO HO! Mawey Cwismas!

Yesterday we got to see Santa Clause at church. Brody actually did really good and didn't get scared. I think bc I have been talking about it alot the past couple of days he was ready. When santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas he said "twuck". I think he really wanted the truck Santa's helpers let him hold so he wouldn't get scared ;)

Thanksgiving Week 2009

This week has been a fun filled Thanksgiving holiday. It started with Elizabeth, Steven and baby Charlie coming to visit from Colorado. They suprised Laurie and Kent early on Saturday night, so everyone came over to visit and have a popcorn party!

The girls then went and saw the latest twilight movie 'New Moon' I loved the movie actually more than the book by the way.

Thursday was thanksgiving, but of course I took like 3 pictures. Here is Uncle Steve-o playing nickjr with the kiddies.

Checking out the yummy apple pie Elizabeth made

Brad and Benj arguing about something competative

On Friday the Ladies once again got together and made strawberry freezer jam. These are the lastes additions to the Bowman clan. Briley and Charlie.

Domestic Divas

On Saturday all the Bowmans got family pictures taken down at the Myriad gardens. Afterwards we went to Toby Keith's in Bricktown for a yummy dinner. We are double daring Brody to eat a lemon......

Sunday for FHE we made christmas popcorn wreaths. An old Cramer tradtion. Thanks Steven and Elizabeth for letting us in on the yummy treat!

Lastly since some of the family wouldn't be together for Christmas, we exchanged gifts early! Steven and Elizabeth got us a FIESTA fun pack, filled with margarita cups, piƱa colada mix, traditional tortilla maker, and a snazzy table runner! now we just have to have a party!

RIP Sampson

I have the worst luck when it comes to animals! Sampson has been with us for over two years, but then out of the blue about a month ago he disappeared and hasn't come back ;( He used to leave once in a while but then come back after a couple days. After calling around and asking a couple of neighbors we think he is gone for good. NO MORE PETS till Brody is old enough to take care of them. Miss you Sampson ♥ On a happier note. Brody thought it was funny to take off his diaper over and over and have us chase him around to make sure he didn't pee pee on the floor! silly guy.

Family Visitees

This past week we first got to go visit my sister-in-law and brother-in-law in Colorado. The trip up was fun. Brody did great except the last little bit. While there we got to have a family dinner with Brad's Aunt, Uncle & cousin, visit some fun outlets, eat good sushi in a fun neighborhood, see his cousins high school play teaser, drive up to Evergreen, CO. and visited the coolest cafe and shops and ate the BEST donut ever! (this donut poops krispy kreme and shipley's), play at the park, go to the library & experience Steve-o's juicy loosey burgers. Once again I only have my OLD camera that holds like 42 pics so enjoy!

We got to hang out with my sisters and mom, visit Granbury, Tx, make some fun jewelry, play at the park, have a birthday party, play outside with the horses, take Christmas pictures, have dance parties, go to a TCU vs UU football game and much more!

Happy November!

I can't believe how fast the summer has come and gone and now winter is quickly approaching. I love this time of year, but I think I always say that when a new season approaches. It seems like the holidays are coming quickly! This month will be busy with alot of traveling to see new and old family members I am sooo excited to see a new baby, my sisters, and for thanksgiving we will be heading down to W. Texas to see my extended family I haven't seen in a while. I am really excited to be able to spend time with my grandmothers who are still living and try to get some interesting stories about them and their lives. I told Brad I wanted to take them to their favorite restaurant... LUBY'S cafeteria ;) Isn't that all old peoples favorite? They are getting older so this might be one of the last times I get to see them, but I hope to get in some fun experiences. I hope I can always have an attitude of THANKSGIVING all year long but bc its November I will say I am thankful for my family and ALLLLLLL my blessings I recieve daily. Happy November to all ♥
P.S. Hopefully I will get my camera back soon and it will be fixed so I can blog more ;)

Chester's party Barn and pumpkin patch

Last week we went to Piedmont, OK to a pumpkin patch to help ring in the fall festivities! There were many activities for all the kids and even adults. They had a pumpkin patch where everyone got one pie pumpkin (not to be confused with one pumpkin pie). The had a small arena where they gave pony rides. A petting zoo where you could interact and feed the animals, sack races, corn maze, hayride, huge slide rides, 10 ton sand box, and much more. I was sooooo proud of Brody because he looooooves horses, he talks the talk but can't walk the walk. Whenever he sees them in person up close he gets scared and says "no, no, no". But this time we were determined to get him on a pony. AND HE DID. Dada rode beside him the whole time and he was scared at first but a real Oklahoma cowboy in the end.

We had Brody pick out all three of the pumpkins we got and he got a small, medium and large pumpkin! A Dada, mama and baby
