Isabelle Lynn Ball











December 18, 2008
Isabelle is Here!!! She was born at 1:57 p.m. She weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long!!! The delivery at the hospital went just great! Probably my easiest one yet!:) We do wish that we could have had more family with us. I had Nathan and Emily in the room with me and it was very nice. She is a great baby and has been doing pretty well at night. The first two nights home were not so good. She was up almost all night. But since then she has been doing much better, letting her mommy get some sleep. Her big sisters and brother love her so much and we are just so glad that she is in our family!!!

Our Trip to Florida!
















Nathan was able to take off four days and so we decided to drive down to Florida to see my sister and brother. We had a great time! I hung out with my sister, Stephanie, while we let our kids play all day. Nathan had a great day of fishing on the ocean. He caught his biggest fish yet! He was so excited. It will be hard to top that day now!!! It was just nice to be with family.

Happy Birthday Bradley!
















On November 5th, Bradley turned 2 years old!!! Can you believe it? He is becoming such a big boy! He loved his cake and ice cream and then had fun opening his presents. All he loves right now is Cars, Cars, Cars!!! He played all night with his new cars and really did try to share with his cousin and siblings. Hey it's his Birthday!!!

October Festivites!











We have done so much this month and it's not even Halloween yet!! We've gone to many events in the community like Halloween in the Park. The kids really enjoyed that. We went to a very cool Pumpkin Farm. We went on a hay ride and the kids went through a hay maze. They loved petting all the farm animals. Bradley especially loved it. Then of course they picked out pumpkins. Then we also went to Trunk or Treat at church. It was very cold outside but the kids had fun! We hope you enjoy just a few of the pictures.

Crazy Eyes!




While getting out Halloween Decorations, these glasses were found. Of course everyone had to try them on and get their picture taken!

Bradley's New Bed


Bradley has actually had this bed for awhile, but he does not want to sleep in it. But for some reason this particular day, he said he wanted to take his nap in the bed. I just had to take a picture of him because it probably won't happen again for awhile. He just loves his crib still! There's no rush, I won't need that crib for another five months at least, so we will slowly move him into his bed. We'll see....

Movie in the Park





Last weekend, I took the kids to the park where there was lots of fun activities for the children. First, they had their faces painted. Bradley had his arm painted with a spider! Then we got a pumpkin and the girls painted and decorated it. Then they played, "It's a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" in the park. We sat and watched the movie. Bradley loved it. He just laughed and laughed! Then we went on a scavenger hunt for pumpkins. It really was alot of fun!

Cute Kids!


I took this picture before church. I know their my kids, but I just think that they are adorable!

Butterflies!!!




Aunt Crystal sent Madie and Aly caterpillars for their Birthdays! The girls watched them eat and get bigger. Then they turn into their chrysalis and then hatch into Butterflies! We kept them for a few days and then let them go outside to fly away! What a great Birthday Present. Thanks Aunt Crystal, Uncle Brett, Sammy, and Ella!!!

I Am a Child of God!!


Bradley made this crown at church on Sunday! He just loved wearing it! I had to take a picture of it before I knew it would be destroyed soon enough.

Hannah Montana???


Madie and Aly got these wigs for a Birthday present and they love them!!! They had so much fun wearing them!

Birthday Party!


Birthday Parties!!!!






We let the girls invite over friends for a combined Birthday Party!! First, they made little pizzas that Daddy brought home from work. All the kids took their own pizza to bake at home. Then they played a game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, and outside for a game of waterballoon toss! Both Madie and Aly wanted their own pinatas, so we had to break two of those. All the children got lots of candy because of that!! Then we had cake and ice cream and opened presents. I think that everyone had a great time. We had a house full of squealing girls, but it was fun! I was very tired by the end of that party!

7 Years Old!!!





Madie turned 7 years old on September 5th!!! She also picked what she wanted for dinner and she picked Steak, corn, and "the little round flat potatoes" (scalloped). We had Seth and Emily over for dinner and opened presents and had cupcakes! Madie was so excited to get Hannah Montana presents!

4 Years Old!!!




Aly turned 4 years old on September 4th!! I can't believe how big she is getting. On the day of her Birthday, I told her she could pick whatever she wanted for Dinner and she of course picked hotdogs with ketchup! So we had Seth and Emily over for dinner and Aly opened her presents and had a cupcake. She was very excited about her new Bike!!!

Too Big!!


Bradley has figured out how to open the sliding glass door!!! What am I going to do with that little Boy??? So far I can just keep the screen door locked and he hasn't figured out that one. I'm sure it won't be long.....

What do you Shink?


The mosquitoes out here in Tennessee are awful!!!! You have to have on bug spray just to go out and play in the yard. Well, I'm not very good at remembering that and so my kids are always getting bites. But for some reason Aly is the one who gets the most and they are always very big and red!!! I said to her, "Why do you always get so many bites?" and Aly answered, "I shink they shink I'm their dinner." She was very serious when she said this and I just had to smile. I love that girl!

Fun At the Fair!




We went to the Wilson County Fair last week and had lots of fun! Madie and Aly went on every ride that they could. Nathan and I just had fun watching them and of course we enjoyed all the wonderful food. Bradley was actually a very good boy just sitting in his stroller. I think there was so much to look at to keep him entertained. It was a hot evening but we had a blast!
