This is the best picture I got of the boys together yesterday...besides the picture I took that Nana might use for her Christmas card, and I don't want to post that and spoil her card! Here they are with Granddad...
Here is Will after the big meal...full tummy=tired three year old! But this one wasn't sleepy at all...haha! He was trying to get his Mama!
...to get two children to look at you and smile...
...much less, FOUR children to look and smile...but we tried...and failed... ...and I told Myra she should just send one like this for her Christmas card, so people can see how real life is like with a 4, 3, 2, and 1 year old!
We have a LOT of leaves in our yard. When the weather started changing, all the trees were beautiful! Now they are pretty much bare, and every day there are more leaves covering our driveway, our yard, and our porch! Brad usually blows the leaves once a week. Will loves when Brad gets out the blower. He runs around following him for about an hour while the leaves fly all around. The other day, Brad had a big pile (just from part of the driveway) and I got my camera out...
He was having a ball! At some points during this process, you could not even see Will. I love times like these with my family, and I can't wait for Daniel to be doing these things with his big brother!
Daniel got this Lightning for his birthday! He loves to ride it, and he is hysterical riding it. He bounces up and down and laughs while he flies around on it. After lunch today, Will asked if we could go on the back porch to ride a little bit. Our porch is pretty big, so they can go back and forth and race in a pretty flat area. Here is Daniel in mid-race! (I took these pictures with my phone, so they might not be that great!)
And here they both are...too sweet! Ignore the fact that Will is not wearing pants...before lunch we had gone to Walmart, and he always removes his pants to get comfortable when we get home! Haha!
This Halloween, we went trick-or-treating in Nana and Granddad's neighborhood. We did not go to too many houses, but the kids still had fun. Here is Daniel (Nemo) before leaving...
Granddad was excited to be in the presence of Curious George and Nemo!! Will cracked us up when he would go to each house...after leaving the door from saying "trick or treatING" and "thank you," he would hold up whatever his treat was and tell us, "I bought this one there!!" LOL. Here he is once he decided he was ready to go back home...George and his loot!
Nemo and his loot...still not real sure what's going on, but wanting to eat something!
A little over a week ago, I had just about had enough of Daniel's wild hair! It was so precious and curly on the back, but wild and uncontrollable in the front. For his first cut, I took him to Snip-Its where I took Will for his. He was incredible! He sat so still and did amazingly well. He had no clue what was going on, but what a trooper!!
Say good-bye to those sweet baby curls! And here he is after the hair cut. Much better, and so grown up looking!
Hi! We are the Rucker family. Brad and Debi have been happily married for 11 years. On May 2nd of 2008, we added our precious son, William Ellis Rucker, to our happy home. We welcomed Daniel James into our family on September 9, 2010. These boys are the absolute most precious pieces of our lives. We also have a 11-year-old Pug named Toby. We have moved our family to the lake, and we love it! Please come back often and watch our family grow!
