It is January... right?!

What a beautiful day!! I'm pretty sure the temperature got up to nearly 70! We took advantage of the nice weather went outside and soaked up a little sun. Anna and I got to run outside this morning which was great and Drew got to jump on her trampoline after lunch. Rachel and Finley came over to play for a little bit and enjoy the weather with us.

Today was also great because Bennett took TWO STEPS!!! So exciting! I knew he was getting close because he is just all over the place climbing, standing, reaching and transferring from one piece of furniture to the other. It's just a matter of him getting brave. Maybe (doubt it) but maybe he will be walking by his birthday next week. That would be so fun!

Mean face

Bennett looks happy :)

Doin' the monkey hang

Helping Drew with the monkey hang

Annnnd.... drum roll please..... I caught him in action!
A little animal cracker never hurt for motivation
He is going to be a year old this coming Wednesday! That is just crazy to me! It seems like we just got home from the hospital. Time flies...

"This is Amazing"

"This is amazing"... is what Drew said as she walked around in the snow today. This is truly Drew's first REAL snow that she has gone out and played in. Last year we had some snowy weather, but the stuff that is coming down today is some kinda snow! And boy is it really coming down!
Momma I'm ready to get out there

Catching snow on her tongue

Of course she had to make snow angels ... and I must say they were quite good :)

(Bennett was napping, plus he has an ear infection so I don't think he will be doing much playing in the snow :)

Twenty Ten - A Look Back

I can't even believe it's 2011, but here it is and another year has literally flown by! Why is it the older you get the faster time goes... I don't like that :) Here are a few pictures to reflect our year.

Well, January started our year with preparing for Bennett to come and me being large and in charge. February came fast!

On my defense I did have some stuff strapped on my belly under that gown, but dang.... I was big!

What an Acheivement!

As of yesterday, Everett Buick GMC is the number one GMC dealership in the NATION!! We beat a dealership in Houston for the most 2010 year end sales. This wouldn't be possible without the wonderful sales team and staff and most of all a supportive community of customers that has made this dealership what it is...... number 1!! I mean if you think about it, it seems impossible that a dealership in a small town like Benton/Bryant beat out every dealership in the entire country. Wow! Normally, I wouldn't post something like this on the blog, but our family and friends are very excited and I wanted to document and share this accomplishment.

I pulled this pic from Arkansas Business in an article that ran back in April 2010. The hard copy had a picture of mom, dad, Brandan, Chad and my cousin, but the website didn't have the same picture. It was a good article about the dealership.

Christmas with the Hudspeth's

Well, of course I wanted to get this post done in December, but obviously that didn't happen so better late than never right?! We had a great Christmas this year. The girls are at a really fun age and the boys were so cute too! By the way this was Bennett's first Christmas! We had a busy holiday like I'm sure everyone else did, but it's always nice to enjoy family, reflect on Christ's birth and remember how blessed we are.
On Christmas Eve we enjoyed a nice service at church and then headed over to Gram and Pop's to open presents with Brandan's moms family. Christmas morning my family came over to our house and we had a yummy breakfast. Christmas afternoon we went to Brandan's mom's house and then Christmas evening we made our way to Brandan's dads. Whewww, okay I'm tired just thinking about it all goes the picture breakdown:)

To start off Christmas Lainie came over and took pictures of all the Hudspeth grandkids (very entertaining;) and thanks to her I was able to get out last minute Christmas cards!
