so lovely

I LOVE anthropologie- their clothes, the housewares, the catalog photography, everything about it. And now they have brought back kids clothes!! Every now and then they will have a few pieces and they are the cutest.


I would like this dress for myself also

love the buttons on this skirt

I want to get Madison this cute apron (or sew her a similar one) to go with her retro style kitchen we got her for Christmas, every girl needs an apron to cook in

104 Degrees

This has become a common reading on the thermometer for Madison the past few days. Believe it or not when it reads 102 I get excited and consider this to be "low" now.

Since Wednesday Madison has been running very high fever (usually around 103.4, and has not been below 101). So far we have seen her pediatrician, called the on call nurse a billion times, been to the ER (Thurs. night we could not get her fever down from 104 so we spent a couple hours in the ER. Poor Jordan had to fly out the next morning at 6 and we got home at 330am), and called the on call nurse a billion more times.

All that has been done is a strep test which she tested negative for. Besides the fever there really isn't much wrong, her throat is a little red and her nose a little runny. Apparently she has a virus that I just have to "let run its course". This is much easier said than done.

Today she was reading 104 again. Today is the first day she has acted really sick, she is very weak (has trouble walking) and just wants me to hold her and let her sleep. She is still eating some and drinking plenty of fluids so that is good.

So...I am just sitting here trying to be patient and letting this virus "run its course".........

Have I mentioned lately....

I love this girl!

and I love this boy!

And of course I have to share some funny things Gavin has said over the past few weeks:

Gavin and I were playing and he leaned back and his arm hit my mouth and he said:
"No Mommy! No eating Gavin! *pointing at me* I said DO NOT eat me."

*Gavin singing* "Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear....uh....*looking around*....uh.... dear carpet, happy birthday to you"

me: Gavin what do you want for Christmas?
Gavin: birthday cake

and another time:
me: Gavin what do you want for Christmas?
Gavin: Pawpaws shoes

and another time:
me: Gavin what do you want for Christmas?
Gavin: To partyyyy!!!!

Gavin: *picking up a wrapped gift under the tree and examining it* "This is a car." -and he is right

We had a great thanksgiving, but it was definitely interesting. At 5 in the morning Thanksgiving day Gavin starts vomiting. This was not fun and being in a hotel room made it that much worse. So he gets sick a couple of more times and then Madison woke up sick. It was very strange because they both got sick a few times within a couple of hours and then were completely fine.
So since they were doing fine we went ahead and went over to my grandparents house and had an amazing meal and had so much fun seeing everyone.

On another note we are having Christmas with my parents next Saturday and Sunday, I cannot believe it is that close! We have been frantically shopping and actually are almost done. I have a couple more guys to buy for. Is it just me or are guys in general harder to shop for than girls??? I have the hardest time. If anyone has ideas please share!!

Jordan getting into the holiday spirit

Ryan and Kate's Wedding Teaser

A few months  ago I was given the great pleasure of videoing Ryan Brooke and Kate Winfrey's wedding.  I consider it a blessing to be a part of their special day.  It was both inspiring and encouraging for me.  Here's a small taste of it.

There's more to come........

Trick or Treat

Halloween was so fun this year. The kids were too cute!! Gavin really got into the whole pirate thing, he is really good at saying "arrrgghh matey!" and he uses his low voice, it is hilarious. We did not think about how covering one eye with the eye patch would take away his depth perception and at the first house he was so excited he ran up to the door and ran right into it! It did not phase him at all though, he was too excited about getting candy.

Babies, Babies, Babies

Kendi - 3 months
I had so much fun taking photos of Kendi, it is incredible that at only 3 months old a child has so much personality already.
Are her blue eyes not amazing??

Madison- 1 Year
I still cannot believe my sweet girl is one!  I have a funny sibling story.  The other day Madison was playing with Gavin's dumptruck, which he did NOT like, so he walked over to her yelled "no Madi!",  pushed her down, then proceeded to walk to his timeout chair without me even saying a word.  I guess it was worth it.

Crew Colley
more to come soon!

busy busy

Life has been busy is an understatement for us. Jordan has 1,349,895,389 videos to edit it seems like and I have been shooting and editing and working on website stuff like crazy.
We do all this after 9 when the kids are in bed, so therefore blogging has been put on the end of the list.
Some happenings in our lives....
Gavin had his "first" real haircut at sports clips, which was quickly followed by a second haircut, compliments of Daddy. Someone should notify sports clips that bowl cuts have not been in style since, well, never. Although I must say, Gavin looked SO cute, even with a chili bowl.
Madison had her first bad sickness, strep throat, followed by a mysterious rash which is still coming and going.
Madison had her first birthday last Sunday, it was so fun and special, even though she was covered in a rash.
Uncle Landon moved back to Lubbock. YAY!
My website is up! Not completely finished, but still, it's up.
