Welcome Baby Kinley

On Thursday. November 11th we welcomed the newest member to our family. Kinley Keating Pearsall entered into our world at 5lbs. 8oz. and 19 inches long. As you can see from one of the pics has a good bit of dark hair.

I figure she is resting up to meet her big brother Boone. Oh the surprises and adventures that await you baby Kinley. Looking forward to when we can see you in person!
Sending love from R.V.
Aunt Nickie, Uncle Steve, Cousin Sydney & Cousin Anderson

First Day in TN

Our first stop was to visit Aunt Beullah & Aunt Sharon. Lucky for Syd, Chloe was there too. So they were able to play together. And of course that led to more plans for them to get together later in the week.
Anderson had fun showing off his ball handling skills. I think Aunt Beullah was really impressed.

Of course Anderson was at the receiving end of tons of hugs from Aunt Sharon.

Then we went to one of Sydney's favorite places Old McDonald's Farm Putt Putt. This is a must stop at least once (sometimes more) while we are visiting. There is actually three different courses one is cows, pigs & chickens.
Everytime one of us hit the ball Anderson squealed & waved his hands around. It was hysterical. Although with 4 people playing there was alot of squealing. Did I mention the kid loves to play ball? He doesn't care what kind of ball just as long as he can play with it.

We also stopped over for dinner at Uncle Michael's and Aunt Kelley's house. While Anderson had a blast playing in the water all the other cousins were busy running and sliding into the water. You should of seen his face when they came down the slide and the cool water came up on his back. It was priceless.

The Cousins
Riley, Logan, Anderson, Sydney & Emma
You can see the great slide in the back.

 Did I mention Anderson has found a new favorite desert? Unlike his sister he thinks ice cream is AWESOME!!

Leaving in a Toyota

For vacation this summer we went to Tennessee to visit Steve's family. We had not been there in awhile and with Steve's Dad being diagnosed with lung cancer we needed to get the kids down to see him. This was to be Anderson's first LONG trip in the car we were not sure how things were going to go. Lucky for us he has a great big sister and she kept him entertained.

The kids as we were leaving the house. They seem pretty happy we will see how they are after 10 hours.

As you may remember Steve's new car is not exactly large in size, but gets twice the gas mileage my Explorer does. So the choice in what car we took was easy.

Anderson somewhere in Virginia. Not too bad for only having slept a total of an hour and 15 minutes. He normally takes two naps that are two hours each. Thank goodness for dvd players, Blue's Clues and Veggietales.
We made it down with no big problems. Hopefully our trip home is as uneventful. I have a really cute video but blooger is not cooperating.

At A Snail's Pace

At a snail's pace is how I seem to of handled my blogging responsibilities. Sorry folks. Once I got so far behind it seemed like catching up was going to be impossible. But I am going to try my best. After chasing after the Little "Big" Guy all day. I have been using my free time to do, well everything else. Plus trying to do fun stuff with Sydney.
This is Sydney's Lego "Gary". Even if you are unwilling to admit it I am sure you all know that Gary is SpongeBob Squarepants pet snail. I don't know where she comes up with these things, but I thought it was pretty darn creative.
Hope everyone is having a great summer.

Not his favorite word

I am guessing "No" will never be the word of the day!

This is what happened after I told him "No" for chewing on the coffee table. Well it happened after a few seconds of telling him anyway.

What "Mother" Means

"Mother" is such a simple word,
But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.
For everything I am today,
My mother’s love showed me the way.

I’ll love my mother all my days,
For enriching my life in so many ways.
She set me straight and then set me free,
And that’s what the word "mother" means to me.

Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!

By Karl Fuchs

Wishing all the moms and moms-to-be a terrific day!!
Happy Mother's Day!
