Happy Halloween

Brock and Braden were both little Monkeys for Halloween this year. The weather was rainy so we really did not get to do much trick or treating however we got to visit family & friends in Cedartown for the day. We hope that you had a great Halloween!

Hospital Visitors

Braden had lots of visitors while at the hospital. We were there from Thursday to Sunday so our family & friends came to see him for the first time. Thanks to everyone who came to see our new little addition. We are thankful for all of you!

Braden James Slocumb

Braden James joined us on Thursday, October 1, 2009. He was born at 12:30 p.m. at Kennestone Hospital. He was 10 pounds and 21.7 inches long. He is such a little blessing and we are very excited that he is here!

Brad and I have been trying to teach Brock to say the blessing every time that we sit down to eat. He is really good about it however in his little mind he thinks that we are saying it because our food is hot. We have to work on that : ) If his food is not hot then he says that we do not need to say it. If his food is hot then he will say "blessing". This morning he was having pancakes for breakfast and he wanted to say his blessing. This is what he said "God is good all the time, Bye". I thought that was too funny! Instead of Amen, he said Bye. : )

Since we are talking about blessings, our newest little blessing Braden will be here soon. Two weeks until the due date so hopefully we will meet him soon. We are so excited!

Busy Bee

Yesterday Brock started his second year at the Early Learning Center at First Baptist Douglasville. He goes two days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am till noon. This year he is in the Busy Bee class (older 2 year olds). He had a great first day and he is already asking to go back to school. I am so glad that he likes it. It gives him the opportunity to play with other children while also learning. Here is a picture from his first day on the playground.

Relaxing Weekend

While Brad and Brock were in Auburn cheering on the Tigers...

...I was at home enjoying a relaxing weekend before Braden arrives. My sister came to have dinner with me and to do a little shopping and then I spent the rest of the weekend reading and using my embroidery machine. Here are some of the items that I made over the weekend while I was just enjoying myself : )

Celebrating Life Together

Brad, Brock and I are very blessed to have a church that we really like. We attend Midway Macedonia here in Villa Rica and have been members there since 2004. We are part of a Life Group that we also really like. Our pastor, Todd, says that the purpose of a Life Group is to celebrate life together. This past Sunday, our group was nice enough to give us a Baby Shower for little Braden. We were blessed with lots of nice things and we are grateful for all of them. Thanks to everyone in our group for making it so special!
The gifts that we received

Look at this precious diaper wreath that my friend Megan made...isn't it so cute!

This past weekend Brad and I took a little trip to Nashville. My dad and step-mom gave us a gift certificate for Christmas to Opryland so we decided to use it before little Braden arrives. We went on Friday and came back on Sunday. We spent Friday at Opry Mills shopping and riding the Delta Riverboats inside Opryland. On Saturday we went downtown to The Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame. That night we went to the Grand Old Opry. Many guests were there but my favorite was Vince Gill (2nd photo below) and Josh Turner (1st photo below). I love Vince Gill so it was a treat to get to see him : ) Sunday we just had breakfast then headed to pick up Brock. Part of the Christmas gift was for my dad (Pop) and my step-mom (Dee) to keep Brock. They had a great time together. Thanks for the trip, we had a GREAT time!
