Regan's Christmas List

OK so Regan started looking at the adds Thursday and wanted to make his Christmas List. Well I got tired of telling him how to spell everything, so I told him to just look at the word by the picture and write what it says. This is what we got.....

We loved it, so just for your FYI we spent an hour decoding a few things so here goes:

The WOW! was the tiger chew toy at Walgreens

The first while supplies last was I guess this entire page..As for the last while supplies last its still a wonder, and then the Ratchet was a hard one but on the way home from shopping we opened an add and there it was at Target a game devise of some sort. so what we have learned was someone has to be watching when having them make their lists...

Happy Thanksgiving

We were able to enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with Kevins sister and LeAnn and her family. Four of their kids were with us for a fun filed few days. They came in on Wednesday early afternoon and the kids started playing then and never stopped. It took Paige a few minutes to warm up but by the end she had them all eating out of the palm of her hand...

These are LeAnn's boys Trevor, Brock, Shane and Jared, with her husband Shawn in the middle. As always we played games all night.

This is LeAnn, we were playing a game called 31 and if you lost you had to eat warheads. If you have never tried them they are terrible. They are so sour that they make your eyes water,

and you have to pucker!!!

We had alot of fun, we laughed alot and talked alot. Then Friday morning Kevin, Shawn, LeAnn and I were out the door at 4:15 in the morning. We ALL (yes even the boys) loved it.

We made are list all day Thursday we had it down.

We started off at Wal-Mart, then off to Target a stop at Best Buy, Kohls for an hour then off to breakfast. After we were done we went to Hastings and back to the other Wal-Mart. LeAnn and I took the boys home and we were off again, we went to Kohls for another fix and then to Belk. We had a great day and even funner weekend. We bought Dancing with the Stars for the WII and all yes all of us danced and laughed for hours. The Hasting employees told us they had never played it but that it couldn't be much fun, but I will say it is money well spent!
We had a great time having family around and we hope that they will come back soon. Thanks for the wonderful Thanksgiving!

A BIG Day.....

Today was a big day for Braydin and Regan at school.
had his grandparents lunch and Regan had his Thanksgiving Feast.. So I thought I would share the day with them.
We will start off with the grandparents lunch..OK I guess you could say that is where that ended. Since none of the grandparents would be willing to come to us ...we decided to try and make it up to Braydin. After the many tears that he shed for missing his grandparents! :) We check him out of school and took him to Taco Bell.. It wasn't as fun as if we would have had grandparent here, but you deal with what you have!

After I drop Paige and Kevin off for nap time I was off to the school again for the Thanksgiving Feast. When I arrived to school I helped Regan get ready for the party. He was and Indian he was named Wise Owl. He looked way to cute. We had picture time and then it was off to eat...

They ate Turkey sandwiches, grapes, popcorn, Pumpkin pie and apple juice to drink. I have never seen Regan eat so much he loved it..

Like I said he did make the cutest little Indian that I have ever seen. He has had so much fun in school this year he has learned so much. I owe alot to Mrs. Ortiz. After the Feast I asked Regan if he wanted to go home with me, and he told me "No" that he want to stay. As I see it, it made me proud that he likes school so much, then on the other hand I wanted to cry that he is growing up and doesn't need me as much..
I hope you boys had as good as a day as I did. I love you both. To Paige my little lovey I love you too! Especially with all your energy you bring into my life.

Fall Fun!!!

We decided to take the kids and try and get some family photos for our Christmas cards. This is what we found, not exactly professional but we will be using some of them. If you know anything about the Eckles side of the family you know that Gary who is my little brother always seems to be the goofy picture taker in our family so I want you to try and guess who it is in our family!!!

Well if you haven't guessed there are a few that got that gene from him. We have decided that the camera loves Regan but he always likes to make the goofy face. Braydin doesn't know how to relax in front of the camera and Paige well at times she was in a GIRL mood (no need to explain anymore!!) As you can tell Kevin and I didn't take very many with us and there is a purpose. We were the winners of the goofy picture! But we did have a good time, the kids had so much energy to burn after having no school for a couple of days.. All in all we got at least one family picture and that was our goal for the day!

Look Who's Older!!!

I was actually able to pry Lindsee away from the Computer to Create My own Special Post.....Just for Her! (Imagine that!)
Here are some Picture of the Fun times we have had with Lindsee over the Last Year!
After a long day at work or after a long trip away from home, I cant wait to see her smiling face. She always seems to make me forget the world around and enjoy the rest of the day.So every Birthday she has, it makes me realize just how lucky I am to be with her another Year.
Happy Birthday Lindsee I Love you Always and Forever!

1-2-3 STRIKES your OUT

For fall ball Braydin was able to finally play kid pitch. He loved it, he learned so much in this last month of baseball. He is really getting to love not only playing sports but watching them.

He was in the outfield, there wasn't alot of action there but it was a good spot for him to learn at.

He had I thought the best coaches, the team took 2nd place he was a Cardinal. Some of the players on his team were from his school. This was a good experience for him. This spring we will have both Braydin and Regan playing. Regan will have to do machine pitch but non the less he is excited...

Fall Soccer came to an end...

This was such a fun year of soccer for Regan. He loves to play but he doesn't like to get in the middle of it all. So he just runs down the side of the field staying with the ball but not touching it..

I can't even believe how big he is getting. He isn't my little Reggie anymore, but he still is a sweet little thing...

Don't ask me what he was doing here, but we had to take the picture because it made us laugh!

He has no problems making friends, he has such a sweet little personality much like his mother!!!

After the game get over the parents make a tunnel for all the kids to run through, then we clap and cheer for them all.

His last game of the year and he finally decided to get into things. He made 4 goals and fought long and hard for the ball...Regan you did great, we are so proud of you.
