chocolate gravy

 Trevor begged mommy to make him chocolate gravy
for breakfast last saturday. Your not southern if you've 
never had ya some chocolate gravy!! It's the boys favorite
thing to eat for's messy, tasty, and very
unhealthy!! A kids dream!!!  
 Why use a spoon when you have hands??
I love love this face!! It made me have a flashback....
 4 months old eating prunes!!!!
Trev wasn't quite as messy but still adorable

Snow day

 Bundled up ready for our first sledding adventure!!!
We don't have snow suits for the year so we 
improvised. A lot of layers on

Steffany had a hard time getting her socks and shoes
on because of all her clothes and her little baby belly.
If Randy hadnt come to the rescue,she might
still be sitting there.......trying to get those
shoes on her feet.
 Trev's first time down the hill!!
He was so excited to go sledding
he could hardly contain his little self.
He LOVED it!!
 That smile is so sweet.
 The snow was too powdery so we had to
sled in the street. It was great but you would
hit a dry spot every once in a while. Randy
had to give Trev an extra little shove to get
him to the bottom of the hill!!!

 Here comes Cruzer Brusier. As much of a 
dare devil as he his I thought he would enjoy it
 a little more than he did but he was also very
very sleepy and was wanting a nap. We let him
sled a couple of times then Feffy took him to the
truck to warm them both up!! It was so cold!!
 Then Trev played in the snow for a little bit.
Made snow balls..

  and of course his favorite, snow angels!!!

A couple pics of Christmas morning

 This was actually Christmas Eve night but I thought the
picture was adorable!!!!
 Trev beat everyone up in the morning and ran in our 
room shouting "Mom, Mom...come in here!!" "Your 
not gonna believe this." "Santa came and brought me 
a police car!! Hurry hurry, come look!!!"
He was so super excited!! I was a little disappointed
I didn't see the initial reaction. Its the first year we've
missed it but it was still so cute to wake up to him 
running in our room waking us up so happy. 

 Then bubba woke up!!! He was adorable. The funny
thing was even though he doesn't fully understand 
Santa yet, he knew something exciting was going
on and fed off Trev's energy. He was screamin 
(good screams) and jabbering away. The
kid was pumped up. I don't think he knew what
he was pumped about but he was pumped up!
 He ran in the living room to see all of Santa's gifts
and just stood there for  a minute like WOW!!!!
Didn't last long though. He was quickly in his new
ball pit throwing balls everywhere.
 LOVES his slide. Probably his favorite gift of all.
He did really good for a while then became brave 
and jumped off the top. Face plant!!!! Such a 
little dare devil!!

 Trev got a couple of nerf guns so he and 
daddy can shoot each other!! There was a war in the 
house most the morning!!
Cruz had a blast with all his new toys but also really liked
bubba's police car. He sat in that thing forever just laughing
and playing with Trev. I've got great video!!!!

There are soooo many more pictures I just thought I 
would post a few for now and maybe another day 
post some more!! A couple other things I remember 
about the morning was Cruz somehow managed 
to fall out of his high chair. I was cooking and heard 
a noise and looked over just in time to see arms 
and legs flying in the air. How that kid manages
to do some of the things he does.....
Not but 5 minutes later Trev tries to get his stocking
off the fireplace mantle and knocks the stocking
holder off almost hitting himself in the head. That 
would have been a Christmas ER trip for stitches!!
That thing is heavy!!! Never a dull moment with 
kiddos around!!
All in all Christmas was a magical as it usually is. 
Thank GOD for everything he has done for

It'a a BOY

My baby sister Steffany found out the 
sex of her baby and this is how she told
us. She and her husband tied balloons on 
everyone in the family cars or mailboxes
so when we got out to go to work we 
would see our surprise!! Very clever guys!!!

Right choices corn maze......really late!!!

Back in October the family took a day trip to Right Choices
Corn Maze located in Mo. It's a Castleberry family tradition
to visit the farm every year. The whole family enjoys it. We
usually spend the entire day there and never run out of things
to do. If you live close enough to visit the maze, I highly recommend 
doing so!!
Trevor doing the corn shooters. He hit a bullseye!
Good job baby!!
Tryston and Trevor being well....Tryston and Trevor.
Cruzy baby and mommy going down the potato
sack slide. Mommy didn't move quite as fast down
the slide as the little guys do. So I gave a good shove
every now and then. Cruz loved it! I had to go several
times!! I love having kids. They give us adults an excuse to
do things with them that we other wise would look completely
retarded doing by ourselves.
Trev man went fast! He went down the slide
bunches too. You just can't get enough of 
this thing.
My little Tryston at the corn shooter. Boys and guns???
What is the obsession? lol
Me and my sweet pea. He is sooo much fun. He ran around
the farm all day keeping up with the big kids. He is just so 
cute and little you don't expect him to run as fast as he does.
People were stopping to watch him run around and would
ask us "how old is he?" They were so surprised he was 
only 12 months old!!
All the Grand babies!!
Cruz, Tryston, Ethan, Trynity, Trevor
The annual hay ride!!!
I remember taking the boys last year so well. Cruz was 
only 3 weeks old. He loved the hayride and slept the
whole way. It was so sweet and relaxing. This year I have
to admit I was a little nervous about my very busy little Cruz
on a hayride. To my surprise he did very well. All the kids
enjoyed riding around the farm going through the woods, 
by the river and next to the corn maze.
Grant, Tiffany and Ethan
Poppy and MiMi

oops. Kinda blurry!!

This would be why the hayride went better than I thought
it would. About half way through little man gave it up.
Perfect time for a nap!! I could have fallen asleep myself.
The kids went exploring in the cave. So much fun!!

What a princess! They farm has a little hay tunnel
the kids love to run through. Makes for a great 
game of tag.
And the day would not complete without riding
the ponies.

Trevor rides Daisy every year!!!! He for some
reason loves her.
This is Cruz's first pony ride. He loved it. I was trying to make
him act like he was riding a wild horse. I threw his arm up in 
the air and we were counting to 8.
I love this picture of Trevor and I. The background is 
beautiful. We were on top of a "hay mountain." You can
run up one side and down the other and we were wrestling
with each other to get first place and fell down. So
glad mimi was there to get a pic of it!!!

I love this pic. We were trying to get a pic of all the kids
but Ethan and Cruz got up at the same time the same way.
This was as good as we were gonna get.
Cruz had a blast in the pumpkin patch and tried picking 
up every pumpkin he could get his hands on.
Trevor wanted to find the perfect pumpkin so it took FOREVER
to find it. He would find one and choose it then he would spot
a better one. It was hysterical.

I know right. Stud!!
