It's been a while...

Sorry for the lapse in posts. We have been super busy. I have just finished up one of the last two semesters of my master's degree. I took a 6 hour essay SLLA (School Leaders Licensure Assessment) and found out that I passed! Will has cut two teeth, learned to crawl and started pulling up. He has also had his First Halloween and Thanksgiving, but sadly I forgot to take pictures of Thanksgiving with the fam. Here are a few pictures....more to come.

Look very closely....first two teeth!!!

Buddy Boone

Finally remembered to get the camera out to capture these two buddies!

Will says "HEY!, look at me"

Reed Shivers Elliott

They say good things come to those who wait. Here is the proof! Reed weighed 10 pounds 10 ounces and was 21 1/4" long. He was a big boy and kinda stubborn. He made his mom and dad wait a long while, but he is here and healthy as can be. Reed came home today!

Will is a little confused at this new little one. I'm not sure if he is ready to share the limelight! :)

Random Pictures

It has been a while since I posted anything, here are a few pictures to catch you all up on Will.

Getting ready for bed in his camo pj's, thanks susu and pop.

Laughing at Pop.

Really really laughing at Pop.

Trying to sit up, but that watermelon head is too heavy!

Ready to "coach" the Tigers! Thanks Uncle Lee for the LSU polo.

Holding his bottle by himself for the first time! (End of June)

Green Beans!

This was his reaction to green beans. I think he is thinking, "mom, what are you doing to me?" Every time I put more in his mouth he had the same reaction but he kept eating. My little fat boy loves his groceries! He is weighing almost 18 pounds and is 26 inches long!

Hope you enjoy this post Aunt Patsy! There will be more to come, but it is slightly hectic around here.

Four Months!

He is growing up too fast! I guess they all do. I'm trying to enjoy the last days of summer with him...I feel like I am on borrowed time! He is rolling over, talking, blowing bubbles and as you see here propping up on his arms. We are still working on sitting up but he can do a good job with some help.

The happiest baby

The LORD has blessed Cullen and I more than we have ever deserved. This precious boy is almost always happy. At three months he is now weighing 11 lbs. 14 oz.

 case you haven't heard---WE WON!!

We were COMPLETELY shocked. Cullen and I both were expecting either of the other two finalist to win. If you don't know what I am talking about I will explain. Cullen and I filled out the Young Farmer and Rancher Achievement Award application, which is about 13 pages long. This is a Farm Bureau committee that we got involved in about two and a half years ago. We have met GREAT friends and really use the meetings as a chance to get away from O.G. Three finalist are chosen every year and we were one of the finalist for 2009. To find out the winner we traveled to the Big Easy, Will in tow. (Yes, I packed the entire house!) At the Awards program, the announcer called all of the finalist on stage to announce the winner. It felt like we were on stage for an eternity and finally they called our names. I was told I said "Oh My Goodness!" at least ten times. The pics really don't do our shock justice.

As part of the prize package we won a 2009 Dodge 2500 4x4, $1000 cash prizes, $250 Sears gift card and a trip to Seattle, WA. The trip is in January and we will compete for the American Young Farmer and Rancher Achievement Award. I am so excited about the trip, Cullen on the other hand doesn't want to think about the flight! =)

Baby Dedication

June 7, 2009 is the day we committed ourselves to the Christian raising of Will. Our family and church family promised to hold us accountable. Thank you all for being present on this most important day. This was one of the sweetest days of of our life.

Sunny Saturday with Grandma Brasher and Maw Maw

Yesterday afternoon Will and I layed on a blanket in the front yard, so of course we attracted visitors! These are the pics from the day.

Will's New Pony!

Well...actually it belongs to George Cullen (Stalling) first and in a couple of years Will and Reed (Rebecca's little one) get to take over. I was so nervous during this photo session! Shetland (spelling?) Ponies are notorious for biting and being mean. Rebecca said that when she was little she had one and it threw her off 16 times in one day!!! Mr. Mike kept saying "I wouldn't do anything to hurt you. Get back on!"
