Gobble Gobble

We made it through Thanksgiving!!!! Still an amazement to me, but Georgia beat Tech... and we won't mention the iron bowl (or at least not around James..... please!!!!), but the holiday is over! It was great fun. We gathered at Mom's house for the turkey and all the trimmings on Elijah and Joey's first Thanksgiving. Of course Joey enjoyed his Enfamil supper, but Elijah stuffed up on all the good stuff! The little porker!

Jameson has decided that he is spiderman and is now even shooting webs in his sleep... I kid you not! I woke up the other night to feed Joey and he was laying there in MY bed (of course because his is just for decoration purposes apparently) and was shooting webs and grinning in his sleep... thinking we should have named him Peter Parker!

Joey is growing like a weed and getting chunky all over! He is four months old today and I believe is getting his first tooth! He now enjoys playing in his exersaucer and laying on a pallet staring at the big ol' christmas tree!

Now all the Christmas shopping is done and the Halls of the house are Decked!!! We are ready for Santa at the Harkins' house! Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday too!

Okay, so since 2010 is almost over....

Well, I thought it might be a good idea to write something on my blog since I have not been on here all year!!! Things have been crazy, needless to say, but try to catch up.....

After a long and tiring start to the year growing and growing with every week, our new little arrival, Joseph Marshall Harkins, arrive on July 29, 2010. It's crazy how quickly you forget how little they really are when they are first born. We now have a little boy who took his daddy's beautiful blue eyes this time! And our brown eyed Jameson is the proud big brother, who actually doesn't pay the little brother that much attention yet, Thank Goodness, but loved all the "Big Brother Gifts" that he received! I on the other hand am going to have to do some serious cleaning out of the toy closets because he received a little more than he should have!

The days have been hetic and went by quickly with a 2 year old potty training and a 2 month old who eats every five minutes at home now, but we're finally getting a schedule down and not pulling our hair out quite as much. I am getting ready to go back to work in a few weeks and life will change drastically then!

But for now everyone is doing well and both boys are growing like weeds! Me and James are having our 5 year anniversary tomorrow! 5 years already!!! It has really flown by but it has been great. Of course things are too crazy to celebrate now, but I'm thinking a good long Smokies trip after the Holiday's is in store!
