It's been a long time...

This is what JoJo did to my ottoman...


Another new decorating addition exclusively by JoJo...


The next Design Star...JoJo


John Parker...begging for cheese. He's really easy to keep happy! Wish my patients were that easy!!



Riding in the car. This is the only time I can ever get him not looking like The Flash!




We're clicking right along here at the Porter household. John Parker is getting excited about the holidays coming up...I am too! Every day is an adventure here in Porterville...I never know who is gonna make the biggest mess of the day...John Parker, JoJo, or Terrell. They all like to keep me guessing! But JoJo is usually the winner!! I included some of her latest designs...please enjoy! We will loan her out for your decorating needs...You can keep her if you like!! ha ha
We are enjoying work...and my big boy is loving going to school! He loves his teacher and his "friends." They read books and he makes pictures and apparently hits some of the other children in his class ( I haven't gotten the "dreaded note" yet but I'm sure it'll be waiting in our cubby hole one morning!)

Meet the newest member of our family...


"I sit like a big boy, momma!"

This is JoJo guarding her purse...


This is JoJo trying to guard her bed...JP says CHEESE!!



The Princess...




We recently bit the bullet and adopted a puppy from CARA. Her name is JoJo and she is a cutie!! She is supposed to be a beagle/jack russell mix but by the looks of her paws...we're not so sure...the whole process was neat. We got to go visit all the animals at CARA and got a tour from my sister-in-law's sister, Hollie. She has been working there for quite a while now and it amazed me that she knew all of those animals by name and knew special things about them! I was really humbled seeing all of the workers and volunteers out there. That place is really special and we are proud to say we found our sweet little girl out there!! John Parker loves her...a little too much. He has this thing about putting his head on anything and saying, "AWWWW...SWEET!!" Sounds sweet...except for the fact that his head is hard as a coconut and heavy as a bag of hammers!! JoJo is not too keen on this but she is very patient with him. We are really lucky...she is a sweet girl! Just a few pics of JoJo and some random ones that I have been sitting on for a while! Enjoy!!

Playing a little catch up...

John Parker is always in constant motion...
Getting into Daddy's golf bag

Cheesing it up for the camera!


So we are officially moved in to our "new" house now. We love where we are (I miss being so close to a grocery store...but it is nice being away from all the traffic!) John Parker loves his new back yard...he cuts grass with his bubble mower all the time now! Daddy loves the fact that he can hit golf balls in the back yard now...I have been working on getting the house "presentable!" I volunteered our house for a shower on the 18th of February knowing that would give us motivation to get it fixed up in time! We enjoyed the lovely weather today and all got outside to work in the yard and then Terrell grilled out...John Parker ate outside, too. It was so nice to not hafta chase him around with the vacuum after supper! We've been rather busy but things are starting to slow down. Hopefully I can chase JP down for more pics to share with everyone. We are getting geared up for his big 2 year birthday next month! Will try to keep in touch!

Big Day at the Porter House...

Well, not only did we enjoy the snow for about 5 seconds...(no pics, by the way...I was not thinking!) we also closed on our new house today. Yep, that's right, we are now in debt like crazy!! But we are excited! Our new house needs some love and care (and paint and carpet...) but we are ready to step up to the challenge! If anyone wants to come help us...ha ha! We hope to be in as soon as possible...well that's ME that hopes to be in as soon as possible...I'll post some pics as soon as we have a chance! Hope everyone stayed safe today in this crazy Mississippi weather!

We're back and better than ever...

I promise he had fun...
We can't go anywhere without our "tools!"








We're back in the blogging world again...I'm gonna try to keep this thing updated for the 5 people that actually read it...or rather, used to read it! We are doing great. John Parker is talking up a storm-favorite words right now are "drewdriver" (screwdriver), "sopsicle" (popsicle), "uh oh", and "monmower" (lawnmower). We are also very proud to report that our little guy is TEE-TEEING in the potty!! He is a genius!! (Gets it from me!!) One day not too long ago he came up to me and said, "Tee tee potty, mommy??" I thought, "WHAT??" But I got up and we high-tailed it to bathroom where he proceeded to impress me with his skills! My mom thought it was fluke but he has proven us all wrong! Been interesting! Anyhoo...put a few pics up of him from Halloween. He was "Melmo" (Elmo) complete with the tricked out Melmo bucket! Enjoy!

OFF THE RADAR...

Hey Guys...YES, we are still alive! We have been VERY busy around this joint. Plus we have cable internet (which seems to move VERY slow...well too slow for the impatient one that resides here...ME!) Just some quick updates...Terrell and I got married on March 29th. It was beautiful. John Parker is loving his new house! JP is a little over 15 months old and is into EVERYTHING! He is the sweetest little fellow...don't know what I did to deserve him (or Terrell for that matter...but I thank the Lord every day!) John Parker now weighs in at 23lbs(45%). He is 32inches tall(75th%) and...get ready for this...his head is 50cm in diameter...it was off the growth charts...BIG time off the growth charts...Hope there is a LARGE brain in there!! His newest "phrase" is "Golf Cart Key." No lie...he says all three together and they make sense! I am seeing dollar signs JK!! Terrell is a BIG golfer and that means that John Parker and I have to join in the fun...so we both have a set of our own golf clubs...JP and me!! Look out Tiger...I'm gonna be on the LPGA in NO TIME!!!! ***DISCLAIMER-you might want to beware on your local golf courses...I'm still trying to perfect my swing:)
