Day 61 Wednesday, November 30, 2011

My animal crackers LOVE peanut butter :)

Day 60 Tuesday, November 29, 2011

It's time for a little workout! That's what happens when you are watching The Biggest Loser, at least during commercials anyway :)

Day 59 Monday, November 28, 2011

She's all in braids!
Taygan kind of has some weird hair. It's curly in the back & pretty straight in the front. She loves the curls, but unfortunately we don't have time to curl it everyday. She decided I needed to braid it after her bath tonight so the front would match the back. I have to say she did look cute Tuesday morning!


Day 58 Sunday, November 27, 2011

To end our wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, we got to see some friends who we haven't seen in about 4 years. They live in Arizona, so obviously it's hard for us to get together. They have family in Mississippi & were there for the weekend. On their way back to Arizona they stopped in OKC to meet us & have dinner. We had such a fun night visiting with them & meeting their 2 daughters for the first time. Their oldest is 2 1/2 & the other is just a few weeks old.
Love the Benge's, so glad we got to spend soem time with y'all!

Day 57 Saturday, November 26, 2011

Culbreath family Thanksgiving.
We always get together with my mom's side of the family on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which seems to work out perfect since there are so many of us. It's very rare everyone is able to make it, but we are thankful for the ones who are able to. We had a great time tonight eating, playing games, & enjoying each other's company.

There's no way I could post all the pictures we took, so I'm just going to pick a few from the evening.

Matt & his sweet Melissa

Aunt Louise & Uncle Wayne working hard at the game we were playing

Steve, Lori, & Tyler

We are all now a little smarter... :)

Day 56 Friday, November 25, 2011

Makaylie & my beautiful momma

Family fun day! Lots more shopping & spending time with each other!

Day 55, Thursday, November 24, 2011

We started out the day feeding our faces at Chey's moms house in Coleman. She always makes the yummiest food & way too much of it. Both of Chey's brothers were there and all their families. It was nice to have everyone together, which is really hard to do sometimes with everyone's busy schedules.

Dakota, Tay, & Momo

And this is how I ended the day! Very tired & ready for some food from IHOP. My best friends from high school, Sara, Shan, & Alissa, make an annual event of Black Friday shopping. It's always so much fun when we get together, despite the crazy crowds, long lines, freezing weather, & late night hours of shopping. This year we added a couple, Shan's daughter Morgan, what a trooper! And, Sara's daughter, Taylor!

Today I have so much to be thankful for, awesome family & friends, food on the table, a roof over my head, health, etc. The list could go on & on. Especially though thankful for a loving God who provides all of this for me.

Day 54, Wednesday, November 23, 2011

I've been waiting forever to watch this movie because all my friends have been talking about it. I'm always a year or two behind on watching movies, but not this time! I decided to rent it tonight & much to my children's dismay I enjoyed a little alone mommy time.
And I loved it...hysterical, made me laugh almost the entire movie!

Day 53, Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Tonight was Friday for the girls & Chey since it's Thanksgiving break, so Taygan invited Abbey to spend the night. It was also our high school basketball homecoming, hence the balloons. Tay & Abbey always have so much fun together. Love these girls!


Day 52, Monday, November 21, 2011

Ok this may not look as funny as it really was. Me & Makaylie were having a "running man" contest. She thinks she's the best. I tried to tell her I've been doing the running man since before she was ever even thought of lol!!

Day 51, Sunday, November 20, 2011

Taygan loves momma's robe!

Day 50, Saturday, November 19, 2011

It's Frost Ya Fanny time!! This is a 5k & 1 mile fun run at a park in Lawton, I believe this was the 17th annual. I did the 5k last year & thought the girls would like doing the mile run & the candy cane chase with Santa. At the end of the chase with Santa, each child receives a goody bag from Santa. They have the entire park lit up with Christmas lights for the event, also.

Here they are getting ready with Santa!

Yay!! So proud of Chey & the girls for doing the 1 mile race. They did a great job. Makaylie finished in 11 minutes. Tay & Chey finished in about 15 minutes, Tay had a little trouble with her asthma, but she's a tough one, she didn't let it get her down.

Day 49, Friday, November 18, 2011

Woohoo, it's Twilight time!
The final book in the series, Breaking Dawn came out at the movie theater today! Katy, Steph, Missie, & I decided to make a girls night of it. We had dinner first at Logan's & had a great time laughing until we cried!
The movie was awesome & what's better is it's only part one, but we have to wait until next year to see part 2. Can't wait!!

Day 48, Thursday, November 17, 2011

Here we are at another basketball game. Chey had to work the gate at the concession stand, so being the awesome wife I am, kept him company ;)

We totally didn't intend for the handicap sign to be pointing directly at him haha!!


Day 47, Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Tomorrow at work we have our Thanksgiving lunch. We all pitch in & bring a dish & the clinic provides the meat. So, Taygan & I made some yummy smelling banana bread. She is always a big helper in the kitchen, whereas Makaylie could careless how anything gets made. Hope she finds a man who can cook one of these days!

Day 46, Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Well, its another basketball night for us, except this one we can sit back relax, cheer & enjoy without too much stress. Our high school played Okarche tonight & they were both close, good games. I think the girls won by just a few points. The boys unfortunately did not come out ahead, but they went into overtime & only lost by 1.

Day 45, Monday, November 14, 2011

It's another basketball night for us!
Makaylie has been a bit under the weather for the last few days, so her performance tonight was a little less than she usually does, but we ended up winning so it's all good! She even said she was "off" tonight haha!

Day 44, Sunday, November, 13, 2011

Taygan & Taylor catching each other during one of the breaks in between games. They are both in pitching lessons!

Gettin' ready to smack that ball...

So proud of our lil Riots today! They started playing at 9 am & didn't finish until 10pm tonight. They played some pretty awesome teams & were able to hold their own! We ended up getting 2nd in this tournament, something we are all very happy about. I know the girls wanted 1st because they won rings, but they have come so far as a team they have nothing to be disappointed about.

Day 43 Saturday, November 12, 2011

The three musketeers or stooges, depending on the day!
Taygan's softball team played today & won to start their tournament this weekend. Taygan's best friend on the team, Taylor, came home with us to spend the night. We had pizza, snacks & movies, so everyone was happy.


Day 42, Friday, November 11, 2011

Lazy night on the couch. Makaylie has felt bad today & had to do to the doctor for a cough & sore throat. Luckily its not anything serious, but still what's better for recovery than chillin on the couch for the evening?!?!

Day 41, Thursday, November 10, 2011

Am-Po Elementary Veteran's Day Program!
I always get a little teary eyed during this one. Our kids always do an outstanding job. I hope learning these songs will stay with them forever & they will always have respect & honor for what the great men & women who serve our country do for us.

Day 40 Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Love this girl! My friend Brooke & I don't get to see each other very often, but we always pick up where we left off. Tonight we had a great dinner at Red Lobster, even though we end up talking too much & the waiter has to harass us a million times before we order!

Ok we both agreed this pic of us is not the greatest but it's gotta be the lighting right?? haha

Day 39 Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Tonight is our high school's first basketball games of the season. Makaylie's & some of the kids in her music class sang the National Anthem to kick the night off. Of course they did great!
Special thanks to Mrs. Vickie Jackson, our music teacher. She does an amazing job day in & day out, teaching our kids not only the joy of music, but life lessons they will always remember.


Day 38, Monday, November 7, 2011

Mmmmm ice cream! There are still a few free things left, like the mini ice cream cone at McDonald's in Chickasha. I know not all McD's do this but I'm glad ours does. My girls love it. It's perfect for after shopping which is what we did a little of tonight. We originally went to find a shirt for the Veteran's Day Program at school Thursday. We didn't find the shirt, but complete outfits for each girl. Guess that's what happens when you get three females shopping together.

Just a side note, we have had tornadoes today! Yes in November, CRAZY! Oh & earthquakes!

Day 37, Sunday, November 6, 2011

Makaylie is student of the week in her class this week & had to decorate this poster for it. Her & her best friend Hannah put it together yesterday. I think they did a pretty good job. I especially loved looking through old pictures of her when she was a baby. Wow, how time flies...

Day 36, Saturday, November 5, 2011

Momo, Chey's mom as we call her, came to spend the weekend with us. We have enjoyed a quiet Saturday at home playing games. This is one of Taygan's favorite, Chickenfoot. Momo has never played it before, so we were showing her the ropes. She looks very intense I have to say.

Ok, I know this a little extreme a picture for what we had here, but I thought I needed to mention this little earthquake we had tonight. It was a 5.6 on the Richter scale which is pretty amazing for OK. I have to say it was a feeling I had never experienced before. It didn't scare me, but it was very interesting. You just never know what the good Lord is going to surprise us with :)

Day 35, Friday, November 4, 2011

My lil OSU girl! She just had to sport her new shirt at school today since OSU plays tomorrow.



Day 33, Wednesday, November 2, 2011

If you know Taygan at all you will completely understand & probably laugh your head off when you see this. We were having a rare night at home & being completely silly. Yep, that is a sweet tart in her belly button! Does picture of the day get any better than this??

Day 32, Tuesday, November 1, 2011

It's another night of Am-Po basketball. I'm loving watching Makaylie improve each game. It's so nice to see her have a desire to be involved in something & care enough to try her best. I think though having her daddy coaching her is great motivation. She's always been a momma's girl, but she sure loves that daddy of hers.
