Picture Day

Here are some of our pictures that we took yesterday at Portrait Innovations. They turned out pretty good. Carson wasn't really up for smiling all that much, but Lily was very happy! Happy October!! Love, The Grays :0)

September Days

Hello to all our friends & family! Sorry it has been a while since our last update. Things here are busy as usual.

We finally have grass growing in the yard after a lot of hard work roto-tilling, raking, and putting down the seed. I know that Michael is so proud that he did it himself...I did help a little!!

Carson is starting to talk a lot more and he just cracks us up. It's like he is just having a conversation...not that we know what he is talking about and we just talk back. He also is saying some animal sounds and it is so cute!

Lily on the other hand is the total opposite of Carson. She is very needy and if she is not getting what she wants then she just screams, sometimes for 10-15 mins. She wants us to walk her around so she can see everything that Carson is doing. No laying on her back b/c then she can't see. She has been enjoying the exersaucer were she is at Carson's level, but with that comes getting hit upside the head a few times!! Ouch!

Michael has been spending a lot of his free time studying for his last phase in the training process. His boss has been so great and has been letting him take time away from work to study also. Most evenings after the kids go to bed I've been quizzing him. I think that I'm learning along with him as many times as I've read some of the questions. Also, football season is underway so we have to turn on the TV to cheer on OU! GO SOONERS!!

I'm doing well! I'm really enjoying being home with Carson & Lily and the flexibility to go and do what I want. Hard to believe that it has been so chilly this past week. It is giving me winter fever, if that even exists. However, really wish that we could have spring all year round. The kids love to be outside when it is so nice. We did go to the fair a couple times last week. It is a lot of fun. Carson really enjoyed the Hedricks animal farm and Lily loved looking at all the lights at night!

Hope that this finds all of you doing well. Talk to you all soon!

Michael, Amber, Carson, & Lily :0)

Would you like a drink of juice?

What a long day!

Oh so beautiful! I love my exersaucer!
