I guess I will start with the smallest! its Lucas and Logan's tree. They love their ornaments. They are way to big for this little 4 ft tree but hey its Christmas I let them have some fun with it!
I wanted to show yall a couple of my favorite ornaments. This is from our last Disney Vacation in 2009.
This has been my favorite the longest. It was actually from before we got married. I went with mom and dad to Chicago Navy Pier and we bought this I love it.
TaDa My tree. Sorry I took these pictures with my phone not the best quality. I have no presents wrapped yet either sorry! LOL
My Kitchen Candy Cane tree. This is the first year I did one in the kitchen and I love it!
The newest member to my Christmas decorations. LeAnne did this and I have to say I love it and so does my husband. Roll Tide baby!!
I am wanting to do a tree in Levi's room but I don't know it that will happen. I would have one in my room too if I had another skinny tree. I will have to keep looking on Craigslist. I got the tree that is in my living room for $40.00 on cl. It was prelit with 900 lights which is unbelievable most pre lit trees have like 400 lights. So I was super excited. I think it is beautiful. I love to sit and look at the tree. LOL Doesn't take much to amuse me. Oh well mom's tree is going up this weekend not to mention it is Lucas' first basketball game and the Cardin Christmas. The fun begins!! Have a great week!
Look at my baby! I had to post this because I just love this hat. I love owls so when I saw this I had to get it.
He sticks his tongue out all the time! LOL He is silly!!
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We were supposed to leave for Atlanta Wednesday by like noon. Of course Bradley was to get off work at 10. Yea right! He ended up working 2 hours over time. So we decided we would wait until Thursday morning. I am not sure why we did that because we were pretty much miserable the whole way. I ended up getting up at 4:30 and we left by 5:30. Thank God Bradley drove the whole way. I finally got awake about the time we got to Calhoun thanks to some Peppermint Mocha from Mickey D's! We had a good trip for the most part. No traffic and the kids were still half asleep. So they were like in a trance! Logan watched beauty and the beast and Lucas colored the rest of the trip. By the time we got there it was about 11 there time so we started getting ready for dinner. I ate way too much!!! Nana is going to have to stop making sweet potato pie. I think I could eat a whole pie by myself. LOL I didn't but I could. Anyway we played some games. The rest of the day was spent looking at the paper. I don't know about yall but none of the toys I needed were on sale. I was very upset. It didn't stop me from hitting up Wal-Mart. Bradley and I got there about 9:30. It was a mad house. No buggies of course. Oh well we got what we needed. We were out of there by 10;30. Then of course Bradley wanted to eat so we stopped by waffle house. Then we were going to stop at tanger. It was ridiculous you couldn't even get off the exit. It was backed all the way down the interstate. I was like forget that. We then decided we would go to Target. Negative!!!! The line was crazy and again nothing there I needed that bad. Then we decided we would go to Kohl's but we soon decided we didn't want to wait another 40 minutes for it to open. If I would have sit still for 10 minutes I would have went to sleep. So no more driving down on Thanksgiving day. It ruined my Black Friday. Oh well we were back to the house by Midnight. The next day we made it to tanger got us some good ole Mexican Food and hit up Kohl's for some memory foam pillows. Which Nana ended up buying them for us for Christmas.
Saturday we got up early and was on the road by 7:30 our time. Got back before noon. Bradley laid down for a nap. Me and Logan went to meet mom and Aunt B at the avenue. Did a little shopping. Then the rest of the weekend consisted of church eating cleaning. It was our regular weekend plus our turn to clean so it was busy. We of course have another week that is so full I don't know what I am going to do! I guess it is going to be crazy busy until after Christmas. Oh well y'all have a good week!!
It all started Wednesday evening. I have been feeling yucky all week like I am getting a cold. Well Wednesday Lucas started vomiting. So he didn't go to school Thursday. I blame it on the Thanksgiving lunch we ate school that. It was nasty!! Anyway so Thursday he was better. So Friday I wake up and hear something at the freezer. When I open the door water is running everywhere .Yes my refrigerator had went out. We were having Thanksgiving at mom's house Saturday. I had just bought everything I needed except the Turkey so I was not very happy!! For some reason unknown to me I have become the turkey lady. I have to say Tom was very pretty this year I almost took a picture. LOL.. So Saturday I decided I was going to call the appliance repair man and give them a shot before going to buy a new one right before Christmas. Thankfully it was just the relay switch it only took about 20 minutes and $100. I can so deal with that. Saturday was a pretty good day we stayed at moms until about 8:30 came home and the kids crashed. Sunday me and the kids got up and went to eat breakfast with mom dad LeanneMichael and kids. (Bradley was the good one he actually went to church) I felt horrible. if it were up to me I would have stayed home all together. I was miserable. So I ended up staying home Sunday night also. Because I couldn't hardly hold my head up. After church Bradley brought me a Taco Bell. After I ate I started feeling better.
Then today me Logan and Levi went to Publix and Hancock's. Then we stopped by Burger King on the way home. I get home make them lay down for a nap. Everything was good. I was putting up my groceries and cleaning. Logan wakes up about a hour later and I lays in the middle of the floor. I am thinking ok what is wrong. Logan doesn't sit or lay still unless he is asleep. Then it started. Vomiting everywhere. Yes the bug is still alive at my house. Not to mention I still feel crummy. Oh well on a good night Bradley and I got new cell phones. I have had my blackberry for 2 years. In cell phone age that is like a dinosaur. lol.. Anyway. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! We will be leaving Wednesday for Atlanta. So I have a ton to do this week. Until next time...
This weekend was like most. Running crazy all weekend!! Friday morning Bradley took a early lunch and met me at Cracker Barrel for Breakfast. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and then to Target to meet Douglas, April Nana and girls for a little Christmas shopping. I have missed them. So I was glad to see them. And of course Lucas and Logan love Kenzie and Shelby so they were excited. We got used to seeing them when carter was so bad. I think we saw them at least every weekend for about 6 weeks and most of the time April and the girls would stay the week and until Douglas came for the weekend. Before that it was about every other week. Then that night when Bradley got home we went down there to eat dinner with them. Bradley had to work Saturday. So I was going to sleep in for a little while but Brandy called bright and early to go eat breakfast. So me and the boys loaded up and went to get mom Brandy and Wilkins. Went to Kmart to look at Christmas stuff and did some running around. Then the rest of the weekend was church and Nana's house cleaning out stuff. I put her Christmas tree up yesterday. I did get mine up and half way decorated. I didn't like the top so I took it all down and haven't fixed it yet. I will post pics when I get it done. Bradley says it is the prettiest tree I have ever done. We will see!!
On another note today is my Birthday yes I am 29 years old. I have one more year before the big 3-0! I am going to enjoy it!!! Bradley will be 30 on Black Friday! This was my last Free weekend until after the first of the year! Thanksgiving with mom and dad next weekend then off to Atlanta on Wed for Thanksgiving with Bradley's family. I will be doing my black Friday shopping in Atl again this year. I am so ready except for the fact that my shopping buddies will not be there this year! (Danielle and Andrea) Last year me BradleyDanielle and Andrea went. It was fun. So I guess this year it will just be me and Bradley! Should be interesting! Oh well everyone have a great week!!
Another exciting weekend! LOL Well it was busy anyway. Friday Bradley had a Dr appointment. SO me and the kids met up with him to eat at our most favorite restaurant. Demo's. After we ate dinner I went to get mom, Brandy and Wilkins. I was so wanting to go shop for a new Christmas tree. So we ran to Old Time Pottery and the Marshall's. Which I didn't find a tree just a pair of boots I wanted. Then Saturday morning Bradley had to work. So I got all the kids up and out the door for Logan's last soccer game. He done really good. Made another goal! His soccer season is over and Lucas started basketball practice Thursday.
So on my way to the game I noticed a sign for a Christmas Craft Show. So after me mom dad and the kids went to Cracker barrel for breakfast we ran to the new Disney Store. (which isn't a real Disney store just junk) Dad took the Lucas, Logan and Wilkins to the park. So mom, Levi and I went to the Hollyday Marketplace. OML They had some really cute stuff. Got me a new Alabama shirt and a houndstooth scarf. Which are very hard to come by in Tennessee. We had fun with no annoying kids. LOL Got the kids and headed home. We got there just as Bradley got home from work. I got to sit down for maybe 30 minutes before time to get ready to go to Logan and Wilkins soccer awards ceremony at YMCA. Which was a nightmare. After they got their medals they wanted to play in the jumpy things and slides. The only problem there was about 100 other snot nose little brats running around. Why do people not watch there kids anymore. They just let them run like hulligans or in some cases they watch them but they don't care what they are doing. UH Left there and we all went to eat Red Lobster with mom, dad, Aunt B and Wilkins. We had a good time. I can not remember the last time we all went out to eat like that. Then Sunday was church all day of course. It was a good busy weekend. I had told Bradley last week that I was so excited about the upcoming weekend because we had nothing to do. LOL Then about Thursday he tells me he has to work all day. Then I find out about the soccer stuff. UH maybe one weekend we can just be lazy.
On another note. Levi has not been doing good again. He has been spitting up so much here lately. I mean I am going thru at least 10 bibs in one church service. It has been awful! But yesterday morning at church it just came to me so strong to have him prayed for. So I did. He has been doing so much better. He never spit up all thru church. Mom even gave him a whole bottle and he never spit it up. He spit up one time yesterday. Last night he spit up a couple times but nothing like it was and he has been doing so good today! So thank you LORD!!! He knows right where we are at!!
By the fire after trick or treating. We are real outdoors people with the laptop. LOL We were looking at Disney reservations.
Me and Levi
Me and Bradley. Horrible picture of me but he is actually smiling.
Where Logan stayed all night! In the road.
Ready for some candy! Love Logans pose
Levi the little Mickey Mouse!
My boys before we left our house. I hated their costumes but I let them pick!
We had a great Halloween. Went trick or treating for a while. The kids already had too much candy before we went. So we have candy coming out of our ears even after leaving Grandaddy half of a bowl. We came back and sat by the fire pit for a while. Brandy and I were talking Disney of course. I am so excited and ready to go right now. It will be two years since I have been on vacation when we go. So I am ready for sure.
On another note I have a new favorite show. Revenge! I had recorded it when it started but we hadn't watched it yet. Everyone kept saying it was good. I had 6 episodes recorded. So last night when we sat down to eat I mentioned something about watching it. Bradley was like uh ok. He wasn't thrilled. I was like just one to see if we like it. So about 4 hours and 2 bags of popcorn later. We had watched all 6 episodes and can not wait for tonight's show. If you haven't watched you gotta. Bradley's exact words were " Ok so this is my new favorite show" LOL
So I am finished boring you all. Have a good week!
My name is Haley Pritchett. I have been married to my best friend, Bradley, for 10 years. I have to say I love him more each day. We have three beautiful little boys. Lucas, Logan, and Levi! I have a good life and I am so thankful for all 4 of my boys!!
