What we're thankful for!

Being that it was Thanksgiving week, I decided to ask Corban what he was thankful for! Honestly, I couldn't wait to hear what he had to say...there's no telling with him!! I knew I wouldn't be able to write everything down fast enough, so I recorded it on my phone :o) Here's what he said...

"I'm thankful for Jesus and God because they hold onto me when I'm in my booster seat and they love me and they forgive me when I'm naughty. And I'm thankful for lizards because they stick out their tongues, but I'm not suppossed to stick out my tongue because it's naughty. And I'm thankful for Macen and Alec and Caleb and Maddox because they are my friends. I'm thankful for everything in my bathroom and my bedroom and the living room and mommy's pictures and the Christmas tree and the big TV."

Oh goodness, this kid makes me laugh!! Cruz was agreeing with Corban, saying "yeah yeah." Haha!! I'm definitely thankful for my two, sweet boys! On the topic of Thanksgiving, Corban "participated" in his school's Thanksgiving program. "Participating" is probably an overstatement!! Many of you might not know this, but there are 2 sides of my dear Corban!! Most of you know his side #1!!

Side #1--->Crazy, ornery, spitfire, talkative, silly, happy, random, and all the other synonyms for these words :o)

Side #2--->COMPLETE OPPOSITE...shy, still, other words, *good* Haha! ;o)

So, it really wasn't a surprise for Caleb and I when Corban decided to stand still and not sing a single word at his Thanksgiving program at school!! Haha!! But, you better believe, as soon as we got home, he started singing at the top of his lungs all of his program songs with all of the motions!!

His silly, goofball face...:o)

"We are pumpkins big & round, big & round, big & round. We are pumpkins big & round. We grow on the ground."

"We are carrots orange & long, orange & long, orange & long. We are carrots orange & long. We help to make you strong."

I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!!

My little George Strait...;o)

I think it's safe to say that I've done some MAJOR slacking on my blog posts...! However, I have managed to snap a couple photos of my favorite country/western singer :O) A twangy singer at that!! This cool, little dude loves to serenade anybody AND everything with his musical talents! He's always strumming that guitar and singing whatever words come to his mind...half the time they don't make any sense :O) During this instance, Corban is serenading our dog Abbee...

Stay tuned for bookings, concerts, and CD signings...;O)

CIRCUS? Sure! The fact that I'd never been to one, I was really excited to go!!! Last Tuesday, the Carson & Barnes circus came to the Shawnee Expo Center, and Nana treated Corban and I to the circus! :O) First, we started off with a pre-show snack...

Then, we enjoyed what we payed for! :O)

Wow!! This guy was balancing on 5 cylinders...Nana and I decided that he probably has some pretty nice abs...!

And...of course, a trip to the circus is NEVER complete without an elephant ride!!

This elephant ride was quite a big deal. If you know Corban, then you are probably aware that he DOES NOT like larger animals(ie. cows, horses, big dogs, pigs...)!!! So, with a little bit of coaxing, he decided he would ride this gigantic pachyderm...with mommy, of course! :o)
