Rylie Jayne Carr

So I got a picture of Miss Rylie Jayne Carr via camera phone and I just had to post a picture of this baby. Look at those cheeks. She is SO cute!! Congratulations to Jessica and Myron. I can't wait to see more pictures of the little precious baby girl. She is going to have the good life. It seems that Colorado is about to be pounded by snow so we hope that they get home safe and sound from the hospital. We can't wait to hear more.

This is what 92 looks like

This is what a 92 year old woman looks like. This is Grandma and who Bella Rose is named after. Is she not the most gorgeous woman ever. I have a picture of the 2 of us from this weekend, but Worth has the camera so that will come later. I am pretty lucky to have this woman in my life. I love her so much!!!

I also want to give a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Jessica and Myron. Jessica just had her first Baby girl, Rylie Jayne. I can't wait to get some pictures of her!!!
Here she is pregnant with Rylie. Oh I can't wait to see her. I am sure that she is wonderful and beautiful!!!

This is our "Bundle of Joy" Christmas tree. He has been keeping all our presents nice and warm until they go to their rightful owner. Isn't he the most sweetest fat tree you have ever seen. We did well this year!
This is for our most precious "Bundle of Joy" Bella Rose. This was given to us by our dear sweet friends Matt and Margaret. It was waiting for us when we got home from work wrapped in pink polka dot fabric with a chocolate brown and pink polka dot ribbon. It has inspired me for the nursery. I think that I am going to paint the bottom half of the wall chocolate brown and have a white chair rail dividing the room. The top half will have the lightest shade of baby pink. I was not too into pink, but then I saw this onsie and I am now convinced! It is a onsie right? See I am learning. The bedding I want is white with scalloped edges and a chocolate brown trim. So sweet!! I have a vision people, you better watch out. My poor husband :)

This is now my new favorite ornament! I bought it at my sister's store in Greenville, SC (rush right there and buy your Christmas presents). When I saw it I just had to buy it. I knew it was my new ornament for the year. We will be able to pass it on to Bella Rose when she has her own Christmas tree one day.
Well I am off to ATL (hip-hop nation) for the weekend to celebrate Christmas with my Dad and Grandma. I hope to have pictures off that beautiful woman on Monday. Much love and Chritmas Joy to you all. I so appreciate you all and all your support.

Back to the drawing board.

It is back to the drawing board on the nursery because we are having a GIRL!!! Bella Rose will make her grand entrance into the world on May 14th, or there around. We are thrilled. The name is very sweet to me and so I am especially glad to have a girl. My dad called me Bella growing up, it is "Beautiful" in Italian. My grandma's name is Rose and she is a Beautiful Italian woman so I am thrilled by all this. Grandma is 92 and will be able to meet the little girl that is named after her. Everything went really well at the doctor. I am 18 weeks and 3 days. I have to go back in 4 weeks to get a better look at the heart. Bella Rose was balled up pretty good. They said that everything else is looking really good. Our sweet little girl. She has given her mom no troubles thus far, prayerfully this will continue :). We have had a lot of friends have boys so they better watch out for Papa Grant. Well thank you all for your love and support. I am putting up ultrasound pictures so hopefully you will be able to tell what is going on. If they did not label stuff for me then I would have no idea.

She sort of looks like an Alien in this one or maybe of Asian descent :)

I still can't figure out how to put the pictures how I want them, but at least you get to see something right? I am also trying to get used to pink!!

Ode to Judith...

this is my ode to judith. she is our hairstylist here in asheville and she is wonderful. this is the updo she did for niki's wedding (the beautiful bride pictured above). she did 9 people's hair that wonderful day. i adored my hair. i did not want to take it down. i would still have my hair look like that if judith would do that for me everyday. you should have seen everyone else's hair. they were all gorgeous and different. the people who were with me can vouch for me for how much i talked about our hair. you may say i was a bit obsessive, but i tend to get that way when it is something i love. i want everyone to know about it. so this is why i share this post with you. if anyway needs a fabulous updo, or great color, or a terrific cut let me know and i will get you judith. people come from and near and far to see her!

Christmas Joy!!

Hello to all!! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was filled with much Chrismtas joy. My sister came up on Saturday and we went to the parade in Black Mountain. The kids get more candy there then on Halloween. They love it!!! There are no hot air ballons or real big floats at this parade, but we love it none the less. On Sunday we (my sister, brother-n-law, mom, 3 nephews, 1niece, husband) went to Avery county and got our Christmas tree. The farm was amazing. The kids could roll down the hill (I wish that I could have joined them), the adults could walk up and down many times (not as fun as rolling). The wonderful tree we got is the one behind us. I have to say it is glorious. I told Worth this morning that I love it. Not as much as him or in the same way, but I am totally in love with our tree. We ran into a slight problem when we were decorating though, we ran out of lights. This has never happened to me before. The top of the tree is not decorated. We bought lights just for the tree, but as we were putting that strand up they started blinking. Well I thought this is not so bad I can figure out how to make them stop blinking. We my friends when the box says "Shimmering lights" on it you can't make them stop blinking I asure you. So at lunch I will be out shopping for Christmas lights to finish my part way glorious tree. I am going to try to upload a picture of it now. It may come before the picture of Worth and me at the farm. I have not figured out how to put the pictures in the correct order yet. Well Good tidings to you and yours. I hope you have as much fun I as I do with this time of year.

PS- okay i can't figure out how to put the pictures like i want them, but i will get there. As you can see the top of the tree is not done. There are lots of pretty ornaments on the rest of the tree, but it is hard to tell. Enjoy!!!

This is Dude

Dude is not from the Big Lebowski, but the horse I ride for this lady in Weverville. He has blue eyes, as all the men in my life do (Atticus and Worth). He is a thoroughbred/ quarter horse. He is about 16 hands 16.1. For those who don't know what that means, it means he is tall. He is a good horse and it allows me to ride which is nice, but I can't ride until June as being pregnant and horse back riding are not condusive. As snowboarding and pregnant don't go together either. Both make me sad since I won't be able to partake in it until next season/summer. It is worth it right? Of course it is, and then I will be able to teach the bambino both loves of mine!!! Have a great weekend. I will be back Monday with many pictures of joyful Christmas trees!
