Our trip to Mobile. Day3...I can't find day 2's pictures

There won't be any commentary on these pictures since #1~ they are self explanatory and #2~ I am surrounded by kids and can't concentrate right now!!!

My Lilah at the church I grew up in.

Did I grow up "in" a church"?

Jeff's Emily

Joel's Brannon.

Joel's Kyle

Picky wearing Brannons glasses. There must be some inside joke about these glasses because he wanted everyone to wear them.

Me and my old,fat, wrinkley self with my sweet Bran-man!

Grampy and Lilah in front of the old Mobile ward building.

Lilah's love of shoes

I wish I could say that I find her cute little feet in my high heels.

I wish I could say that she tip toes around all day in her little pink ballerina slippers.

I wish I could say that her first words were "monolo" or "Jimmy Choo". (those are expensive designer shoes, mom. I knew I'd have to explain that one to ya!)
No. My little girl is obsessed with her big brothers shoes.

Maybe one day she'll change her mind and love her pretty hot pink penny loafers as much as her brother's smelly sneakers!!

A mom can only dream.....

Sunday photos 2 days too late

I try to take pictures every Sunday. I've missed a few weeks but try to remember most of the time (especially if Lilah is wearing a new dress). This past Sunday was crazy and time was getting away from us but I had a few quick seconds to take a picture anyway. Sooooooo, we were literally about to walk out of the door to leave and as Tim is gathering his things and I finished applying my lipstick and grabbed the camera, I hear this mad rush up the stairs that sounded like a herd of buffalo. I yell for McG to comedown stairs and he informs me that he is just now getting dressed for church. WHAT!?!?!?!?! We were just about ready to leave at the exact milli-second it would take for us to get there in time for Tim's meeting. The meeting that he conducts. The meeting he gets annoyed if anyone shows up late to. I swear I don't know how Tim and I didn't realize he was still in his jammies!! Oh well, no pics of Mac to show but just try to picture him in his white shirt and tie. Poor boys...they have to wear the same thing every week. Maybe I'll get him a new tie.

She absolutely refused to look at the camera for some reason.

Does this profile not look exactly like McGwire as a baby??

I had to throw this one in too. She is holding on to the "feminine product" that she had been playing with all morning. This proves the fact that she will play with ANYTHING that is not a toy!

what you missed...


I got a new camera and didn't know how to download the pictures. It has taken a month or more for Tim to show me how.

So, what did you miss??

Well, you missed Sunday shots #1:

Notice the hockey stick in Lilah's hand? It's been her constant companion for the last couple of weeks. Won't someone please get her a tutu and some ballerina slippers??

You also missed left over halloween pictures:

Here's Tim "beating up" McG

a bloody mess!

we also had some fake teeth messed up teeth but he didn't want to wear those!

cute striped tights

cute family!

Luckily, you missed the elementary school's fall festival:


Jill tried to get Lilah to smile. TRIED!

this is about how much fun we had!

The 'ol fishing game. Isn't that lady supposed to be hidden?
So much for excitement and suspense!

You missed Lilah being...well... Lilah:

are you talkin' bout me?

I said...are YOU...talkin' bout ME??

her favorite place to be!



Of course, you also missed Sunday shots#2:
(I CANNOT get a good picture of these two.
I shutter to think what our Christmas pics will
look like this year!)

And finally, you missed McGwire getting a new hockey stick.
BUT WAIT!!! This is not just ANY hockey stick!
This is Ilya Kovalchuk's hockey stick.
Who is Ilya Kovalchuck you say?
Why he is one of McG's favorite hockey players on the Thrashers.
He broke the stick at hockey practice and Tim was able to get it from him and suprise McG with it. He was sooo excited!

close your eyes!

What is it?

No Way!


See, you didn't miss much.
