The Polar Express

Last night we went on The Polar Express in Lubbock. Hayden had a blast! It was a very cold night but the train was warm and cozy. They passed out hot chocolate and cookies to everyone, sang Christmas carols, read the book, and played music from the movie. When we got to the North Pole Santa Clause and his elves were waiting for us to arrive. Then they got on the train and Santa talked with every boy and girl and passed out a "Bell". This was the first gift of Christmas from the movie. When Santa came around to us he asked Hayden what he wanted for Christmas and he told him a bell. Smarty. But then he told him that he wanted trains. Then they asked the kids to get in the isle if they wanted to dance. And of course Hayden didn't hesitate. One of the Elves saw Hayden and started dancing with him. He loved it. We are so glad that we went and hopefully it will return next year. Hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It's A Boy!!

We are so EXCITED. We went for our ultrasound today for them to check out the baby's anatomy. They made sure that everything looks good and is functioning like it's supposed to. Then she asked us if we wanted to know the sex of the baby, and of course we said Yes. Then she told us that "It's a Boy." We asked her if she was for sure and she said is the scrotum. Those were her exact words. We are so excited that we are having another boy. I think Hayden will enjoy being a big brother and I know that he will be great at it. I have attached a couple of pictures of Baby Boy Wiley. In one of the pictures there is an arrow pointing to the scrotum telling us that It's a Boy. It's really hard to make out. In the other pictures he has his hand under his chin and you can see his fingers.

Thanksgiving in Round Rock

We drove back home for Thanksgiving. Man, what a long trip. But Hayden is a sport. Thank Goodness for DVD players, they are a life saver. We had Bum Bum (Scooter), Nana and Papa's cat, up in Levelland with us since September so we were bringing him home. All that he wanted to do was either lay in Hayden's lap or down by his feet. They are Best Friends. We had a great and relaxing time in Round Rock. Stayed with Uncle JJ and Aunt Candace for a couple of nights and then went and stayed at Nana and Papa's. Had Thanksgiving lunch with Grandma and Grandpa C. And spent some time with Mamma and Pappa. Oh, also went shopping with Aunt Candance on Black Friday and had a blast. We need to do that again. We also took Hayden on a train ride in Cedar Park that he loved. We did our Christmas with Uncle JJ and Aunt Candace since we will not be able to see them at Christmas time. They spoiled Hayden soooooooooo much with tons of wooden train tracks, trains, and a Thomas Rolling Bag to put it all in. Thank you Jeremy and Candace for everything. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Miss everyone already and can't wait to see everyone soon.

Hanging Christmas Ornaments

We put our Christmas tree up early this year because we were going to be gone for Thanksgiving. We had our whole house, inside and out, done the weekend before Thanksgiving. It felt great when we got home from Round Rock not having to worry about putting any decorations up. Hayden had a blast decorating the tree. He was getting in the Chritmas spirit. He keep singing "O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree." We asked him were he learned that from and he said from school. It was great! When he was decorating the tree he was putting all the ornaments on the same branch. At one point he had 7 different ornaments on one branch. Both, Blaine and I had to keep going behind him and putting the ornaments on differents branches and up higher. We had a great time and enjoyed seeing Hayden have fun.

Hayden and Santa

The other weekend we all went to this place called Holland Gardens to get light holders for the lights on the roof. We thought that it was going to be a garden nursery, it usually is, except when Christmas comes around. Well to our surprise we walked in and they had the whole place decorated with all there Christmas trees, ornaments, villages, lights, and everything else that comes with Christmas. Both Hayden and I were so excited, but Blaine not that much. Then we ran into Santa Clause. It took us awhile to get Hayden over to see him, but once he got use to him he was fine. We took a picture of him and Santa on my phone and it turned out great.

Santa gave him a couple of candy canes, which ended up all over his face and hands. We had a blast. I'm so glad that we went. We are probably going back this weekend to buy our Christmas tree. This will be the first time that we have a fake tree. Having a real tree was great, but man it got old.

Associate Head Coach

Blaine was named Associate Head Coach at South Plains College. We are so excited for him. He works hard at what he does and it has paid off. He will start his indoor season January 17th at the Texas Tech Open. We are hoping that they will bring home another NJCAA Indoor and Outdoor National Championship.

Happy Halloween

"Capt. Wiley"

We took Hayden around our neighborhood for Halloween. He had a BLAST! It was a beautiful day in West Texas. Thought that it was going to be cold like last year so his costume was built around the cold. That never happened. Half way through our Trick or Treating, Blaine took his helmet off and his hair was soaked. We went around a couple of blocks and headed home so we could pass out candy. I think Hayden had more fun passing out candy then Trick or Treating. Here are a couple of pictures of our Little Fireman.

Guess What?!?!


I am almost 15 weeks and starting to show. We are so excited, especially Hayden. He tells everyone that there is a baby in Mommy's tummy. I had to take fertility drugs again and we thought that it would take a while like it did with Hayden...but I only had to take two doses this time. It caught us by surprise. We had our second ultrasound last Thursday and the baby is looking great. I scanned the pictures for everyone to see. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

This was the first time that we have had 3-D pictures done. We couldn't believe the details compared to a regular ultrasound.

South Plains Fair

Ok...I know that it has been a long time since I have blogged but it has been a very busy few months for us. So, two weeks ago we went to the South Plains Fair. Nana and Papa came with us and enjoyed watching Hayden have fun. We ate all the bad stuff that you could possibly think of...corn dogs, fries, fried pies, corn of the cob and turkey legs. I think we took in our calorie intake for the week in one day, but it was fun and worth it. Hayden went on a couple of rides and we saw the animals and went to the petting zoo. He had so much fun we stayed till 3 and on the way home he feel asleep. Blaine and I stayed in the car with him when we got home because we were afraid that he wouldn't go back to sleep if we woke him up. He finally woke up 15 mins. later and said that he wanted to go to his bed. Blaine took him in there and he slept until 6. I guess we wore him out. Enjoy the pictures.

3rd Birthday Party

On Saturday, August 16, 2008 we celebrated Hayden's Birthday with a little party with some family and friends. He also had some kids from daycare show up. Hayden had such a wonderful time. We rented a big bouncer and slide for the kids but I think the adults had more fun then the kids. We want to thank everyone for all the great gifts. Hayden has been enjoying them. I have provided a some pictures from the big day. I was going to put a slide show up but it was giving me some problems. I'm also putting a video of us seeing "Happy Birthday To You." If you listen very close you can hear Hayden singing along.

Nana and Grandma took Hayden to pick-up his Balloons. Here he is stuffed in the backseat with all of his balloons.
