It is a boy!

Well, we are for sure having a boy! We are all very excited, especially little scott. The only problem we have is trying to figure out a name for the little guy. We usually have no problems coming up with a name but this one has us stumped. I guess we have till march to figure it out.

ipod kids

So our kids love music so we let they hang out with the ipods every once in a while. They are so funny with them, singing at the top of their lugs and shaking their bums. It is fun to capture their moments! We will have to record Maddyson some time because she really gets into the music. She is our Drama Queen and we love her!!

Ok so this isn't the kids but man is he ever so sexy!! I love you babe!!

Ready for Christmas?

We had fun putting up the tree and the kids were a pretty good help this year. Maddyson wanted to be in charge of everything and in a couple years I am sure she will be running the show. She loves decorating for Christmas! She takes after me! I think once I moved out of my parents house the decorating was cut in half and it doesn't get done till about a week before Christmas.

Thanksgiving Fun

We had a fun time spending Thanksgiving with our good friends Jon, Adrianna, and little Jon Edens. It was fun to see there new place and to see how much Little Jon has grown up.

What a cute family! Thanks for having us over guys, you are amazing!

Our attempt at a nice family photo before we went out the door. This is the best we could get I think.

The kids loved little Jon and he liked them for the most part. He probably enjoyed having a quiet house after we left though. He was so much fun! I have found that when the baby comes McKayl is not going to leave him alone.

Family Vacation

We had a fun opportunity to take a trip with Terrence's parents a few weeks ago to see a lot of cool sites. We started in D.C. for a friends wedding and then headed up to Atlantic City, New Jersey to stay in my in-laws time share. From Atlantic City we went over to Cape May which I think was my favorite part of the trip. I would love to go back there someday and enjoy some sunny beaches. If only sunny beaches didn't bring in so many people that would make it even better.We really enjoyed the beach to ourselves.

McKayl posing in the leaves in a park at Cape May. She loves her hat and scarf and wears them in the house all the time. She is funny!
Our family picture in the park. What cute kids!

Family Vacation

Finding shells on the shore of Cape May. It was a little chilly but all worth it to have the beach to ourselves. Cape May is a beautiful area and I would love to go back early summer so the kids can play in the water a little. I would say it is a must see!
Building some what of a sandcastle in November. The kids loved it!

Old boards left from the old board walk in Atlantic city. Terrence can make anything amazing!

Daddy and daughter so cute together.

Family Pictures

Well we have been trying to get a good family picture for a while now and we finally got it. Terrence set up a mock studio in the garage and it seemed to work out great. The kids were good but family pictures are still an adventure. It is funny that we always get our family pictures when the next kid is on the way. I guess there are some habits you just can't break.

smoky pics

This was a fun hike we enjoyed but did not finish. It was about 2 miles there and another 2 miles back so we just hiked about a mile and headed back. It was a nature trail so lots of roots, rocks, and whatever else came along. It was very beautiful!
Now this hike we did finish and the kids were excited to see the waterfall at the end. We also had the opportunity to see some baby cubs on this hike. The weather was perfect!
This was just a fun spot to take a family picture so we did. Not very often there is a sign with your name on it.

The kids loved this and Terrence put quite a bit of time into getting the Jiffypop to come out just right. It was just like it came out of the microwave. Usually half the popcorn gets burnt so we were lucky. Poor Scott really needed to go potty but he made it through the picture with the trickling stream noises and all.

Smoky Mountains

We just took a fun family trip up to the Smoky Mountains and it was beautiful!! It was my birthday present and I must say I almost loved every minute of it. The only part I could have gone without was the leaky tent and all night of rain. I told suggested to Terrence that we should put up the tarp but of course the weather was beautiful so he felt no need to do that. As many years as I have been camping I should have insisted but I didn't and we paid the price with no sleep and wet everything in the morning.

The hikes were fun and the views were amazing!! The kids loved playing in the dirt and being free to do just about anything. They were a little worried about bears because everywhere we went their were signs cautioning you about them. We did have the opportunity to see two baby cube and they were really cute. Of course we kept our distance to be sure mama bear was not around.

After 2 days of camping Terrence decided it was time for a hotel so we stayed in a tourist town called Gatlinburg in Tennessee. It was fun to walk around town and see the small shops. The kids loved watching the taffy get stretched and wrapped up so of course we had to go in a buy some to see how good it was. So to sum it up we had a great time and I would love to go back soon!

I will post pictures of the trip when my hubby returns from Utah with them. He always has my pitures!

Exciting News!!

Well the Campbell Family is having a baby once more!! The kids have been waiting very patiently for number 4 and they will continue to wait until March. They are very excited and Scott just wants it to be a boy so he can have a brother to play with. I have my doubts that it is a boy and I really have no reasoning other then that is just how I feel. Hopefully I am wrong because I would like this one to be a boy too. Terrence has been awesome helping around the house or should I say running the house. On days I don't feel good he does everything clear down to the dishes. He is the best!!! We will let everyone know in about 10 weeks if it is a boy or a girl.

New Orleans

This was our latest trip just before Maddyson started school. We went to New Orleans and it was quite interesting. I can't say I loved it but it was a new experience I will not forget. We went down the famous Bourbon street and it was worse then the Vegas strip. The rest of down town had some really cool architecture and tons of history so that made up for the trash other places.

As you can tell everyone else loved it too!! The kids were a little hot at this point and they were ready to go back to the hotel and swim. Don't visit in the Summer unless you love humidity and lots of heat. They were happy in the shade!!
This is the mighty Mississippi behind us and while we were there they had a bit of an oil spill so it was kind of a busy river.
The Balloon clown was fun and the kids balloons lasted about a day of course. It was a better record then some of the other children around us so at least we got them that long
The beads were sold just about everywhere you went. They had a ton of different sizes and styles. Did we buy some for our kids??? NO. We know what happens once we get home and once we got to the hotel they didn't even remember they had asked for one. Kids are great!!

Coming back

This was one of our stops on our drive back to Atlanta after staying in Pocatello for about 5-6 weeks. We tried to stop and see as much as we could.
The kids and I with Devils Tower in the back ground. It is at the edge of Wyoming just before you enter South Dakota.
Terrence and the kids posing in front of Mount Rushmore! The kids did not love every stop but they put up with it.
It was a little tricky to get this shot but I just couldn't pass it up. everyone but Maddyson passed out.
This was at Buffalo Bill Dam right by Cody, Wy. They had a ton of water coming out that thing and they said it was the most they had in years. The sun was a little bright!

Playing outside

This is our beautiful Maddyson who loves to be in front of the camera. We miss her all day now that she is in school and we can't wait to go pick her up at the bus stop.

This is our handsome boy Scott and man does he keep the house lively! He loves everything sports and of course you can't forget those braves!!
This is me playing with sidewalk chalk with the kids. It is fun to have an excuse to play with the kid toys. Being a mom is great!!
Our little ball of sunshine McKayl! What would we do without our little mother keeping us posted on everything. Don't ask me where the curls some from?!
My wonderful husband out enjoying his latest new toy. Except this time I am using the camera so we have memories of him too. He is sooooo cute!!
