another flashback...jacob's first shoes...1.2

[i need to get better at actually taking my diaper bag camera OUT of my diaper bag and uploading the pictures...]

these pictures are from jacob's 1st shoe buying experience!!!

poor little guy didn't start walking until christmas week/new year's eve week, so he had just been wearing drew's hand me down shoes since all they were doing was providing warmth and keeping his socks in place...

we took the whole gang to the shoe store for their annual sale...everyone came away with a new pair! jacob was not very impressed with the whole experience :) his pacie stayed firmly in place the entire time!!!

Thursday, February 25, 2010 moon premiere...11.19.09

a long. long. long. long. time ago...i went with a few of my crazy friends to see the premiere of new moon at the midnight viewing...yes. we are crazy. my sweet friend mary is a tidge obsessed with all things twilight and hosted an amazing party complete with mushroom ravioli, blood type drinks, and more...(only a true twilight lover will understand...)

we hung out at her house all evening, playing the twilight trivia game and watching the first movie, then we headed out to our midnight movie with all of the screaming teenage girls in the memphis area. it was a hoot. seriously. the theater was filled with teenie boppers and then silly women my age :)

p.s. for some reason, we ALL let amy do our make-up during our party. and we were in bad lighting. and we all ended up with scary white eyes...she swears that it looked good in real life, but just didn't photograph well :) regardless, NONE of us normally look as "dolled up" as we did that night!!!

i think i finally got into bed about 4am! but, the memories were worth it!!!

we had a very unexpected snow day...with all the hype we have had this winter that resulted in NO snow, this day arrived with little to no fanfare!
i think the official readings were 5-6 inches of was definitely up to the top of the kids' boots!
we put baby brother down for a nap and headed outside for some fun!!!

tim and the kids put a lot of effort into constructing two gigantic snowmen!!!
oh my would have thought a car full of disney characters were coming the way sarah and drew started running after the little's van!!!

sweet friends! maddox, sarah, and hudson...

(by this time, drew had had enough...sarah had been outside for around 3 hours!)

everyone eating snow cream...not all its cracked up to be :)
snow apparently makes everyone ravenously hungry! we had snacks all day long! it was really fun to have the littles and yorks join us for the snow day!
