Callie Sue Holland

Our sweet girl arrived yesterday at 12:51 pm. 8 pounds 5 ounces, 20 inches. She has a head full of dark hair! Carson and Shane have been so excited for her to arrive, but were completely uninterested in her and kept asking when they got to leave! Silly boys!!

Callie's Room

I can't believe we only have 11 days until my sweet girl arrives! We finally got everything done in her room! Gigi painted the ballet murals on the walls, I love they way it turned out!


Tommy made the boys costumes again this year. Carson was a crane and Shane was a bulldozer. They love construction vehicles right now and were so excited to wear their costumes. It was difficult to get them to stay still for a picture!

Random Pictures.....

Shane's normal TV watching position....clothes off.  He constantly takes his clothes off these days!  I'm not sure why, but he loves it.  I don't try to put them back on unless we are going somewhere or people are over because it is pointless, they come right back off! 

The boys found a new use for Daddy's boots.  They filled them with trains then dumped them out for quite a while!

Playing with Lauren

Carson is not napping anymore...usually.   He fell asleep sitting up on the couch while Shane was napping. 

Napping on the floor.  As long as he naps,  I don't care!

Watching TV one morning.  I'm not sure if they had been up late the night before, but they sure look tired for the morning!

One of their favorite things to do is make a comfy spot which is just a large mound of every pillow in the house.  Usually they make it in the living room, but this day they decided Carson's bed was a good spot.


I have been horrible about taking pictures this year, but I'm working on it.  I've been trying to leave my camera out so I can catch all the cute things Carson and Shane do.  I got some cute pictures at the pool this week!  The boys love going to the pool and since it has been so hot that's one of the few places I can handle the heat! 

I love this one!  He doesn't put his face in the water, but he loves wearing his goggles!

Enjoying some cherries.

Love the cute smile!

Shane really enjoyed the cherries!!

Icy Fun

We have been stuck inside the last few days because of the crazy weather, but we have found some interesting ways to stay busy.....
 After two days inside, the boys needed some exercise so I set up the bounce house inside.  I wasn't sure it would fit, but it worked!  The only bad thing was the fan that blows the air in was louder than I expected.  Carson and Shane really had fun!

Tuesday morning Carson wanted to go outside and play in the snow.  He didn't understand that it was ice and not snow so I brought some of the sleet in to show him.  Once it melted I put it in a cup and put it back outside.  It refroze and we brought it back in to play.  They loved the big chunk of ice.  I don't think I got any pictures, but Shane loved to put his feet on it!

Last night, I put some beads, rocks, bolts, and money in an ice cube tray and put it outside. 

 We brought them inside this morning to see what happened.  Carson and Shane loved touching the ice cubes.

Then we melted the ice cubes by using warm water and a baster.  This was lots of fun!

Then we sorted all the little objects.  Carson loves to sort, he does it on his own sometimes.  Shane mainly likes to mess up the sorting.  Yes, they have very different personalities!!

This was such a fun activity!  I am planning to do it again in the summer when we can take the ice cubes outside in the heat.
