Christmas Card Attempt...
It is almost impossible to get both of them to look in the same direction. It was still fun! Thanks to Nana for the extra help. I finished smocking these outfits in October and could not wait to put them on them! I'm so glad that Gentry has so much hair. I didn't know if we would get to use the hair bow. I think we are going to use the last picture in this group, but I had to share some of the outtakes too. Hope you all have a very blessed Christmas!

"Are we all finished?"


Eyes Wide Open

"Little" big brother is still loving kisses! He is very gentle with her most of the time. We haven't had any tractor incidents yet but we can't turn our backs for a second. He was trying to pull her "socks" off while she was in the bouncy seat yesterday. Only she didn't have any socks on. He was pulling the bottoms of her footed pjs along with her entire body.


Gentry Elise Horner

Maternity Photo Shoot

With only 27 days until the arrival of #2, I thought it was time to get some family pictures. Matthew was so sweet and generous in this endeavor and I can't thank him enough. Graham was the perfect child through the whole experience, I could not believe it. We ended up at Lasting Expressions, which was an awesome experience. If you have one near you it is worth trying them out. I do apologize for the lack of blogging. Chasing a toddler and preparing for another baby has about done me in. We also had a little bit of drama with this pregnancy, so it has been a little more difficult than the first one. We can only hope it doesn't forshadow how this sweet baby girl will act in the future. I am only going to put up a few from the shoot, but please enjoy! Hopefully the next entry will be about the birth of our daughter!


We Have a Walker!!

Graham started walking today!! He is so funny. Still crawls when he wants to get somewhere quickly but is walking a ton. He smiles so big and wants you to clap every time he makes it to a stopping place.


I'm Just Plain Giddy!!!

You won't even believe what I'm about to share with you...... If you have followed our blog at all, you are well aware of my love affair with many restaurants. We eat out a lot, too much, really! Matthew and I really enjoy finding those quaint little places in every town we visit or live in. Our greatest infatuation has been with a little place you could only find in the north or in Florida (snowbirds I guess). Every spring they open their doors and give away a free treat to every faithful follower that comes their way. As the weather gets better and days are getting longer I was reminded of this glorious little treat shop. This morning I googled them and discover the best news of the day. In the coming soon section I stumbled upon the little known fact that they are opening one right here in my beloved Collierville!!! Right after we shoot Graham up with his "9 month" shots we will be driving as fast as we can to the doors of our new RITAS!!!!! Sorry everyone but we will be a little late on Friday. I'm sure you understand that we can't pass up this awesome oportunity. Curton family, yes you will be compensated for our late arrival! You don't even know how excited I am!!! Well, Cassandra does!


Videos Galore....

Mostly for the Grandparents. We have been having computer issues and lots of sickness, but here is a little video update of the past month. Missing you all out in blog world.

Graham Is ALL Boy

He just started walking behind this today! He is really good with the activity walker but I haven't caught it yet.

This is what Graham got for his mommy's 30th birthday and his 3/4 birthday!


The Progression......

Graham started really crawling today. He was in the middle of the living room when Matthew walked in from work. I said, "Look who's here!" Graham squealed three times really loudly and started crawling straight for his daddy. It was so sweet. I didn't have the camera ready. (of course) To commemorate this great feat, I have posted a few videos of the progression. He has been working on it since November.
