Saved the best for last!

As the ole sane goes "Save the best for last" so that's what I've done! This past Saturday, downtown San Antonio had a train show, and of course we just had to take Grandon, what kind of parent's would we have been if we didn't! They had a Thomas the train ride, and tons of trains, just take a look for your self!!!



OK so these trains were totally cool, the whole thing is made completely out of Legos! Top and Bottom pictures!








Grandon Standing with Thomas! He's Dressed as the Conductor so he needs to be at the head of the Train!



All the cousins riding Thomas together,Trevor,Leeander,Madison,
Taylor, and Grandon. The last kid wasn't with us.



Grandon and Daddy



It was so cool, Thomas's tank even blew steam out of the top!






This was a painting that one of the vendors there had, and I totally love it, I wish I had talent like that, I would so try to paint something similar! Just in case you aren't from Texas that is in Austin downtown, you can see the capitol in the back.

This is all the kids riding the Train!!!

Dancing in the car...

The other day we went to go shopping at the outlet malls in San Marcos, and while Grandon was sleeping, Madison decided to get down, and show mommy and daddy her moves, it was so cute, we got a few pictures, and a few videos so I'll share a few of both, they tickled us, and we got a good laugh!!!

OK so I'm sorry that the video is turned the wrong way, apparently Clayton forgot to turn the camera when he was recording, so just tilt your head to the side a bit, and watch the cuteness!!!

Sad and cute all at the same time!!!

A few days after Grandon's surgery, he started to become his little boy self again.




















Playing with his sister, beating her up, and this time he was like YES! I have a cast to hit her with, and oh let me tell ya did he hit her with it!!!




















We got a couple of super cute pictures of the two of them playing, and one really sad picture of him, not feeling so good the next day after surgery, but it was so cute to see him all knocked out, always carry a pillow in the car!!!!

Let's start from the beginning....

Like normal I am going to post a bunch of blogs all at once, why you ask, because I've let myself get behind yet again! So I'll start from the beginning and work my way up!!!







On Feb. 16th Clayton and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary!!! Yay, wow has it only been 3 with all that we've been through it feels like 20!!!







Anyways we had a nice evening out the Friday after our anniversary, the 20th. We went to dinner and then dancing, we got a quick snap shot of us, I was sad to see it come out a little blurry, but that's ok still a good picture of us!!!

Grandon's Post-Surgery Pics...

I guess, now that things have settled down just a little bit, I can update everyone on Grandon.


His surgery went really good, he had a hard time waking up from the surgery, and was in a lot of pain when he did wake up. They gave him morphine the minute he woke up, and right back to sleep he went. This has been a tough surgery for us.


His recovery has been much more difficult, and the narcotics really changed his personality. Three days later the pain is finally starting to go away, and now it's just more uncomfortable for him to have everything on his hands. He is having to learn to let mommy and daddy help him out and do more for him than he likes. We are holding up and taking everything day by day. Here are some pictures from his surgery, they break and pull on my heart strings every time I look at them.

What's the news...

WOW!!! It's been a little while since I've updated our blog! We have two very big things going on with our family right now.










Our First big thing is... our house is finally up for sale, YAY!!! We are so happy, we are hoping that we can sell it quickly, and then find another home to buy. Before we can do that Clayton and I need to agree on where we want to live, it's a debate between us.








At the end you can click on the website to view our listing.








So our other big news is that Grandon










will be having yet another surgery!
The first picture is from when Grandon
was roughly 3 months old and had his very first surgery.












Now here we are again 3 years later, and you can see that sweet smile on his face as he rides his bike, but in less then a week on Feb. 11th, we won't see that sweet smile for a little bit. Gandon will be getting his 4th surgery.











Both of his hands will be worked on , the middle finger of his left hand, will be getting roughly an 1/8th of in inch of bone cut off. On his right hand they will be cutting down in between his ring and pinky finger. They will have to do more skin graphing on that site as well.











Our poor little man won't have use of either hands for a bit, which means a three year old won't be able to feed himself, dress himself, play, or get baths. Needless to say this just might be one of the hardest surgeries we've had yet.









Please pray for him that all goes well, and for a speedy recovery!








Besides the normal little things that happen in life, that's all we've got for our big news.
