rhett is officially fired from ever taking pictures again

rhett and court met up with pops, cade, and uncle jon last saturday to head to the fort worth stock show & rodeo. here are the pics that came back. i will give my hubby 1 pass this time since court was starting to get sick while he was there. we just thought he was cranky, and come to find out after nap time, he felt AWFUL! so, here ya go. your guess is as good as mine as to what these are pics of. :) 

i think they are looking at a tractor

 cade, pops, and court..... not sure what they're doing with the tree. :)
maybe they are trying to push the tree over?!?!? :) 
next year - i'll give him lessons before they head to the rodeo. momma needs some GOOD pics!

happy birthday to POPS!

this is a day late - only because i was feeling yucky yesterday and pretty much stayed on the couch all day. beckham is still sleeping and excuse court's "nap hair". he didn't want to wait til beckham woke up to sing to pops! 
don't forget to pause the music on the blog. :)

a great start to a BRAND NEW YEAR

we bundled up this morning and headed to the airport to greet the troops arriving home. the boys stayed in their pjs, we grabbed some donuts and took a ride. court wore his rainboots and he and beckham were quite the sight for the early morning greeters. the veterans and older  greeters came and took pictures of the boys with their pjs and flags while beckham flirted and played peek-a-boo with them. the flight ended up being delayed a little bit, so we were all just trying to pass the time entertaining them. the boys did GREAT! court enjoyed waving to the troops and clapping for them and beckham enjoyed squealing when he heard the other greeters cheering. what an honor it was to be in the presence of heroes today. the men and women that walked off that plane make it possible for us to celebrate holidays like new year's eve without having to worry about our safety. we enjoyed thanking them for their service today. it was a very small gesture, but the look on the service members faces was PRICELESS!

greeting troops this morning at DFW. i loved seeing the great big smiles on their faces when they walked thru the doors at the terminal. 

court playing with the american flags they hand out. he didn't quite understand the rule about - "don't let the flag touch the ground". 

 waiting for the soldiers to arrive.
as the soldiers walked thru, court would say, "there's another one mommy!". 91 soldiers came home today for their 2 week leave. 
 they usually hand out the soldier bears to children of soldiers who are at the airport to greet their parents. but, there weren't any kids today so, the veterans came and gave one to our boys. we are looking forward to doing this again soon!
