Whoop Whoop It's potty time!

This is happening and it's huge people..... I've been changing diapers for 8 years.  Wrap your head around that.  And we've been using the same diaper genie for all three kiddos.  It's about had it, and I have too.

His face says it all; kind of excited and kind of apprehensive.  He prefers to stand and is great with #1!  He can TT all day long and keep those pants dry, but the #2 and sitting on the potty situation is still not his favorite (ok he detests it and runs for it).  I break all the rules for this and am a bribing momma when it comes to potty training- this boy will do just about anything for candy so  he is going to twidle for skittles- Ha! ;)   I made a rhyme the other day to David Franklin and he said it was "not my best work".  Hahaha

Hoopin' it up!

It is time for cute bball watching on Saturday mornings, this is such a great group of kiddos!  DF is coming out of his shell but still needs to work on being aggressive and keeping his eye on the ball.  He loves it and continues to improve though, so we are all happy about that!  Nora made a sign and was the best cheerleader there!  Love som Y ball!

Toothless wonder!

Today DF pulled his own tooth at school so he's missing his front 3 teeth!!!  (no sign of permant teeth coming in any time soon either!) I love that snaggle toothed smile!  He also got a new haircut and is feeling very Fresh!  He said, "mom, my hair is my most prized possession.  This is the best haircut I've ever gotten....... I look GOOOOOOOD."    I'm glad the boy takes after his daddy in the confidence area! ;)

Deer hunting and snow

Franklin took DF and two other father/son duos to George West and the boys went hunting for their first times.  David Franklin got two deer and is hooked, loved every minute of it!!  I am pretty sure Franklin did too :)

While they were away, we had our first snow in Arkansas this winter.  It wasn't much but the littles and I had fun while it lasted!

New Year's Eve wedding in Chicago

My cousin, Jeff Johnson, got married in Chicago on New Year's Eve and Franklin and I went had so much fun!  It is always great being with that side of the family and those cousins and I don't get to see them often enough, but we have such a strong bond and connection thanks to Grands Ellen who worked hard to create it.  We missed her A LOT but she and David and many others were there in spirit.  It was a traditional Jewish wedding and a beautiful ceremony with lots of neat traditions and heritage.  Even though I missed many on my Johnson side who were not present, I felt loved and secure having Franklin with me, who is always by my side and on my side and I love him dearly.  

Jeff and his lovely bride, Erica.  They are a sweet and happy couple!

Franklin and Kevin (my younger cousin, Julia's boyfriends had to try on the yarmulkes) Kevin is not jewish either, but they couldn't resist seeing how they fit.  When in Rome! 

I love these peeps very much, Jenny and I got told a lot that we look alike and I think she looks a lot like my Grands.  People have always said I look like my Uncle John and they said it over and over again this weekend!
