1. The birth of Packy is of course the best thing that happened all year. My sweet baby! (And yes I still nurse him at night if he wants.)
2. The most fun thing we did was go to the Justin Timberlake concert for Betsy's 30th birthday. You can laugh if you want but it was AWESOME, just ask Jason.
3. The most life changing event that happened was meeting Mr. Johnny and enrolling Jay in karate. Jay has really become more confident and controlled since we started and Mr. Johnny is so great at challenging and encouraging Jay. LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM!!! Happy New Year everyone!!!

We are still doing some stuff but it is not as organized.
The reason-Jason and I are addicted to Guitar Hero III.
I stink but I'm getting better.
He has become the rock star I have always wanted to date.
I am so 16 right now.

by Robert Louis Stevenson
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside—
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

DAY2-The note said to learn about the advent and watch a Christmas movie. Our family lit the first advent candle at church so we wanted to explain what the advent is all about. After church we decorated the tree. Jay wanted LOTS of ornaments and that's what we did. We made our own advent wreath and then cleaned up! Ceci came over to bbsit and she brought some Christmas crafts-an ornament for them to decorate and some foam stickers to make Christmas pictures-she is the BEST mother in law! Then they watched Charlie Brown Christmas and went to bed!

Paul Allen Churchwell was baptised yesterday. He wore a gown my mom made. This is the fourth one she has made for her grandchildren. What a special gift! Packy was beautiful and Emory kept asking why he was wearing a dress. Hattie is here. Jay is reading books to her. Such a sweet big cousin. Emory put on a "show" after Packy's lunch and sent Hattie around to sell tickets. After the show was over she had collected $8! I think we might have something here.

I have always lived by the 3 day to form a habit rule. Packy does not follow this rule. Night 1- 1 hour crying. Night 2- 30 minutes. So far so good. Last night-more than an hour and more than I could take. I nursed him and he went back to sleep immediately. Now this is my fault because I have been nursing him whenever he wants, including the night, and he is almost 9 months. I just know it won't last forever. I usually try to nurse for a year so really I only have 3 months left. Does he really have to sleep all night?
Below is a sneak peek of Christmas.

My name is Payton. I am a nicotine addict.
I have taken a vow along with http://www.whyquit.com/ to NEVER TAKE ANOTHER PUFF.
I have had this habit since I was 15 so I am pushing way too many years.
A blog is supposed to be about real life right?
This is mine.
No more nicotine.

I am now one of those people.
We are trying to ready for Halloween.
I walked around Walmart today and had Christmas anxiety.
Santa is on a budget.
We have too much now. I can't imagine more stuff. Stuff gets on my nerves.
We had a busy weekend with friends from college, a concert, a birthday party, and the kids singing at church Sunday night. I will put pictures up later and for sure some of Halloween.

Jay built his firetruck with Papa at Lowe's.
Emory, Mimi, and I went shopping at Old Navy and Target. (new outfit in the picture) Drew came over and played with Jay. We went to the Senn's and watched the Georgia game. Mary made an awesome lasagna and salad. The kids played on the trampoline in the dark with flashlights and the babies wanted to be held. Sunday consisted of church, El Sombrero with Mom and Dad, naps for me, Jason, and Packy, and then "Daddy time" while I got ready for the week. Started off Monday on track and Jay had a green day. Yeah! He is at karate right now.

Yeah it's Friday!
I won last night 6-0,6-0 (by default).
I lost today 7-5, 6-3.
The weather is super but it made me
realize that Em has no clothes.
Old Navy here we come!
Mom kept Pac this morning and while he was sleeping she did laundry and cleaned the kitchen. It is so awesome to come home and be more caught up than when you left. Thanks Mom. Looking forward to a weekend of nothing. Family time around the house. Jay is going to Lowe's with Papa Watt tommorow to build a firetruck and see a real firetruck. So special to get to spend time with your great grandad. I made a Greek Shephard's Pie last night that was really good. Does anyone else have a car that looks like a bomb exploded in it by Friday afternoon? I can tell what we did by looking at my car-ballet, karate, church, school, Chick-fil-A, and other junk. Time for a car dump.
