Cotton Bowl....Here we come!!

Well, it's official. The hogs are headed to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. They will be facing off against Missouri on January 1, 2008. Your daddy will be off work that day, so I guess we'll all be in front of the television rooting on the hogs....without Houston Nutt on the field. Guess we'll all see how it goes. OOOOOOOOO PIG SOIEE!!


My First Christmas Parade

The Searcy Christmas Parade was Saturday night. Emma is really into lights and parades, so we decided to bundle up and go. Although it was short, both Emma and Mac enjoyed it. (Mac slept through most of it!!) Mac was very festive in his "Santa's Lil Helper" Outfit. Luckily Grammy bought it in 12 months (before he was born!!), so we were able to layer clothes under it so he would stay warm.

Christmas Pictures

I decided that I was going to take pictures of Emma and Mac to include in our Christmas cards this year. I had them dressed Saturday morning to take pics with Santa at USA Drug, so I decided to put them in front of the Christmas tree. Needless to say, it was crazy trying to get them to both look at me and smile at the same time, but a few of the pictures turned out cute.

Our trip to Mountain View

Our family took a trip to Mountain View the weekend after Thanksgiving. It was actually Mommy's birthday present from Daddy since she has been pretty stressed lately. We left on Friday morning. It was a very relaxing weekend. We rented a cabin with a big jaquzzi tub that I actually got in to take a bath. We got out to eat our meals and maybe hit a few shops, but other than that, we stayed in and watched a lot of football....We didn't miss those Hogs beat LSU...GO HOGS!!! I also sat in the high chair for the first time. I am still working on sitting up, but I enjoyed actually being a big boy for a change. Momma even let Emma get her camera and take a picture of me with Mommy and Daddy. We headed home Sunday morning (that was Mommy's birthday!!). I think everyone had a great time and really enjoyed themselves.

Decorating for Christmas

As I was getting out decorations for Christmas, I noticed Mac was really enjoying this snow globe with Santa and Rudolph in it. When you turn it on, it lights up, plays music, and spits snow out of a tube onto Santa and Rudolph. He plays with it daily. Yesterday, I took him and Emma to USA Drug and they had their pictures made with Santa Clause. He loved Santa's beard.

Mac is growing like a little weed. When he was weighed last week to get his Synagis shot (for's given monthly until March), he weighed 18 pounds exactly. He is still wearing 6-9 month clothes. He is trying to crawl. He'll get up on all fours and get each leg to move, then he falls face first into the carpet. He is rolling everywhere to get to what he wants. He has 1 tooth and is working another one. He can sit up for a minute or so if you sit him up, but then he looses his balance.
