Through the Eyes of a Three-Year Old: GREAT Grandma's

Braden & Kaybrie with their Grandma, Betty Crow on 2/13/2010, and yes, she is a great grandma!

I was pulling out cards on Saturday & going through the massive pile that I bought at Christmas time because I always stock up on cards for the year to come. I ran across the birthday card that I purchased for Mamaw Crow, and showed Jason and the kids. A little later, Kaybrie goes to Jason and says,"Who will get Mamaw's card since she lives w/ Jesus?" Jason told her. "Probably no one." She replied, "How come not Grandma?" Jason told her, "Grandma is not a Great Grandma." She said to him, "Grandma is too a GREAT Grandma!" Through the eyes of a 3-year old!

This Post is in Memory of Mamaw, Ruthie Crow: Braden & Kaybrie's Great-Grandma who went to live with Jesus on January 12, 2010! She just loved sitting and watching them play and play. My children are so blessed to have been a part of her final days.

The Princess Turns 3!

The Crow Princess started partying it up on January 25th w/ a party at the Bouncy Barn w/ 10 of her BFF's, sure glad that we did, due to another Winter blast that decided to sweep Northeastern OK! Kaybrie has yet to have a birthday without SNOW!!!
Here are the gifts she received from Mom & Dad. A pink princess Bible, that she calls her God Book, she carries everywhere, gotta love that!
She got her dollhouse, the ONLY thing she asked for, funny how 3yr olds start asking!
These are the cookie suckers that my friend Morgan and I made for her friend party, aren't they the cutest! I want to start a business, what do you think?
Here is Kaybrie and her BFF Faith opening gifts at her friend party!

So, I was gonna try to make a elaborate b-day cake for her actual b-day on the 31st, but she decided she just wanted pink cupcakes w/ purple sparkles and only 3 of them! So here is what I came up with! LOL!
Awww, Brother and Sister Love....

....yummy cupcake love!!!
Happy 3rd Birthday Baby Girl, I Love You!!!

Superbowl 39- I'm not even gonna try the Roman Numerals for that One!

Our Engagement Picture

Five years ago this weekend, my wonderful husband hid an engagement ring in the grocery bags that I brought home from Wal-Mart, he waited patiently while I put them away, and then when I found the box, he dropped to his knee and became the happiest man ever when he made me the happiest woman ever! I love SuperBowl weekends! And yes, I always check for hidden treasure in everything!!

Catch Up Time!

Hello... Blog World, Family and Friends! Have ya missed me? Well I know several of you have, because I have read and heard your comments while I have been on my brief, over 45 day, hiatus from keeping you posted on all the happening around The Crow's Nest! So, the last post you saw was Braden turning 9! And with that change it seems he just keeps getting taller, mouthier, and has decided that school lunches are not his thing anymore, so now he/I packs a lunch every morning! Fun! Fun!

Now I'm not gonna bore ya with reading story after story of ALL the great happenings, but I am going to give you a brief synopsis in picture/caption style!
My cousin Destiny was married December 19, 2009 to Mr. Kris Darbison, aren't they a beautiful couple!

On December 21, 2009 Jack Michael Chernisky was born. He is the little brother of Kaybrie's BFF Faith and of course on of my BFF's Stacye! Faith stayed two nights with us while patiently awaiting the arrival and homecoming of her little brother!

We delivered our annual Christmas Eve gifts this year to 12 of our neighbors, the kids did not get to do it w/ the wagon this year (As you can see Braden wasn't very happy about that, LOL!) We actually delivered them, in a closed door Chrysler Sebring and did I mention that I got it stuck, yeah didn't get pictures of that little ordeal or the mud flying everywhere! Big thanks to my neighbors Red and Steve for getting me out!
Braden & Kaybrie put out Skim milk, Crow-bars, and 8 carrots for Santa and the reindeer...
...they must have been good kids in 2009 because they both got bikes!

'Twas the Night Before Christmas and ALL through the State of Oklahoma a Blizzard Warning was issued and boy did we get snow, it stayed on the ground for over a week and the kids had a blast playing in it during Christmas break! We didn't get to go to Nana's house until New Year's Day for Christmas, but we still enjoyed a wonderful break!

Had to share this picture of Mr. Hayden, he turned One! His birth was shared on this post!
Happy Birthday Baby Hayden!
