Update in Pictures

I know it has been a long time since I have posted. I have missed blogging several big events so I am going to try and catch up through pictures documenting the busiest time of the year for us November through December.  We had Finleys birthday on November 23, Thanksgiving, Christmas and then Crider's birthday on December 30. Although it is the busiest time of year it is also the most fun time of year and we get to spend so much quality time with our families!

House Seasoning

I love Paula Deen's house seasoning. 1 cup salt, 1/4 cup black pepper and 1/4 cup garlic powder. I use this on everything from burgers to vegetables it is so good. Any time a recipe calls for salt and pepper I use this instead. Mix some up today and keep it in your pantry I promise you won't be disappointed:)

iPhone Blogging

I know I know it has been a very very long time since I last updated my blog. My excuses are I have 2 small children, my computer is broken and I don't like spending too much time on the Internet. I made a promise to myself when I started blogging that it would always come last on my to do list so if I sometimes go months without posting you can assume that my to do list is long ha. Anyways I am trying something new, blogging from my phone. I am doing this for several reasons:
1. Way more accessible to me
2. My computer is broken
3. Easy to quickly upload my photos
4. I probably won't ramble if I use my phone because it is harder to type on this small keypad

So here is an update on our life since my last post:

We went to Disney with Kory's parents, Crider had his 1st sleepover with Owen Staley, Kory and I went to Amelia Island with my parents, roofed our house, and had some fun times at home.

I know I have left a lot out but this is a test post to see if I like blogging from my phone so I hope to be posting again soon.

Update in Photos

Since I haven't posted in a while I thought I would do a small update through photos.  

Every day right around the time I am cooking dinner Finley gets so fussy so Kory takes him out to swing and he loves it.  This particular night he decided it was a perfect place to sleep ha.

 While Kory was in Nicaragua me and the boys spent some time in Marion.  We went swimming at the country club pool one day.  It was special to have the boys in the same pool that I spent so much time in as a kid.  Finley loves his uncle Logan!

We ate lunch at Aunt Ethel's after church which is always a special treat.  I love this picture of Finley playing in her floor.

Kory preached a few Sundays ago and it was just me getting the boys ready for church.  I surprisingly got all three of us ready early so I tried to get some cute photos of the boys all dressed up.

We went to the lake this past weekend and had so much fun!  It feels like vacation when we have the chance to get away from home and spend some time on the lake.  We also end up packing as if we are staying for a week long vacation.  Its a whole new ball game when you are packing for yourself and kids.  They require so much stuff.
I have so many pictures of my mom with the boys in this same place on the boat.  I think this picture of her and Finn may be one of the best.

The only way we could get Crider (Mr. Cautious) on the jet ski was to tell him that he was going to feed turtles, this would be the explanation for the hot dog bun in his hand.

Okay so maybe it wasn't the best update but I hope you enjoy the photos!

The Passionate Cunninghams and 4th of July

On the 4th of July we went on a little family bike ride.  It sounds sweet doesn't it?  What you don't know is that it was a 15 mile bike ride in the pouring down rain!  But it was a good time and I felt great after it was over and it was fun time spent with my husband, sister in law, and father in law.  My mother in law was sweet to stay back at the house and watch the boys so I could go. 

We are soaking wet in this picture
One of the many things I love about the family that I married into is how they get passionate about things and dive in head first.  Then in a year or two they move on to another thing.  I don't have this kind of personality but I love following whatever the latest Cunningham trend happens to be.  Right now it is road biking!  My sister in law is the one who usually determines what the trend is at any given time I just love her and she is so hard core. 

My mother in law and father in law get passionate about their own things too.  Right now COWS occupy most of their time.  I can't really get into this particular passion but I am trying to understand.  I think my son Crider might have inherited this from them because he gets really passionate about things and gets fixated on something for a certain period of time then changes to something else after a month or two.
He wanted to ride with us soooo bad!

Finley was teething over the holiday weekend and this face pretty much describes how he felt the whole time.  Poor thing:(
