I've been tagged

I was tagged by my sister-in-law Haley. :)

Here are the rules. I did not write the rules. Someone else wrote them.
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.

3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts.

4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Everyone knows how I feel about these types of things so I am not sure why I am doing it, maybe it is because my middle name is only 2 letters!

J= Jolly
I feel like I am just like saint nick I have a belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly and I am almost always happy. Santa is not a bad guy to be like! I love life and all of the ups and downs that come along with it. (Molly you stole my first word!!!!)

O= Open
I am like an open book what you see is what you get. I don't try to hide anything and I am willing to talk about anything that is on my mind. I don't feel that any subject is taboo and I love that people can come talk to me about things they wouldn't usually talk to anyone about. (we all know I can talk anyone's ear off!)

Okay now I finally did this and Kate, Sarah, and Cherie have fun with this one!

Our little peanut


Shelby has this new thing where she curls her tounge all the time! I think it is so cute when she does it. It seems like she just keeps getting bigger and more fun each and every day. I really love being a mom, it is such a blessing.

Give me the Camera!


Shelby is happy to be home and playing with her basket of toys again. (don't get used to it we leave in a couple days for 3 weeks!) But anyway she also is quite interested in the camera these days. I guess she wants to learn how to use grandpa's fancy camera like me. We aren't very good yet, but I am loving to learn on it and it is SOOOOO nice. Thanks Grandpa for letting us borrow it!

Hot Hubby!!!!!!!

Jon got his braces off! I am so glad that we decided to get braces for him, he looks so great. We thought since he is going to be a dentist and all he should probably have straight teeth. Well it looks so good. I always thought that my hubby was hot (even with crooked teeth) Now he is even hotter, if you can imagine. I'll admit that it is still a little wierd to see his actual teeth when he smiles and Shelby is a little confused cuz his "bling bling" is gone, but we are so happy for him and think it will help our future in the long run. I'll put a picture up soon so you can all be jealous that I have the hottest man on the earth! :)

Aunt Molly's House!

So we just got back from Flordia visiting Molly. We had so much fun! Shelby loved the airplane rides because there were so many people to stare at and make friends with. She would just stare at them until they would say hi and then she would give them a huge smile and a wave. When we got to Molly's house it was late so we just ate dinner and then chit chatted before bed. Then we hit up the 2nd largest mall in America (what could be better for the Hammons girls?) Shelby totally dug that too. She took a nap in her stroller and then just people watched the rest of the day. Then we went on a boat ride with the Jungle Queen which is basically a ride through the canals where all the filthy rich people build their mansions. Is was so cool, I will totally have a house there when I win the lottery. The island that this boat took us too was... well how should I put this?... SMELLY, STINKY, YUCK! but there was this Mad man that got into a pit with the alligators and told us some facts about them. Which honestly I didn't listen too closely because I was too concerned with him losing a hand or a foot or even his life! He just dragged the alligators out of their water holes and then rode them. NUTS O!!!!! Then we went to the beach and Shelby loved the sand and the waves. I was a little bummed cuz we didn't have swimsuits, but it was still fun. Molly thinks that it is really cool that the first ocean the Shelby ever was at was the Atlantic Ocean. I think it is pretty cool too since that is the ocean that I sailed across on a tall ship a few years ago. (I miss that)
Our return flight was supposed to leave at 7am on Friday which would get us to Vegas at like 9:45am with the time change. But the airline that we flew on is so dumb (don't fly Spirit, they may be cheap, but there is a reason) Anyway we were there in plenty of time, but we missed the flight so we then were going to leave at 8pm. Molly had to drive all the way back to the airport to get us, but it was worth all the frustration because we got to shop and hang out for one more day with Moo. Plus Shelby got an Elmo doll which she is totally in love with. I can't even put it in her crib with her because she would just make out with it and play instead of sleep. Shelby slept almost the whole flight home because the flight wasn't full so we were able to take the car seat on the plane. Turns out that it was a blessing in the end cuz we spent more time with Molly and Shelby got to just sleep. Anyway we got home safe and sound at 11pm on Friday night and Jon was so excited to see his girls. Thanks again Moo, for the fun time. We will have to come out again soon!

Sleeping is what she loves to do!



okay, okay, okay I know that this is kinda my obsession. I love taking pictures of my little girl while she is alseep. It always cracks me up how I find her so I just want to share it all with you guys. Anyway here is Shelby the last couple of days. She has been getting pretty good at tearing all her animals and blankets off the side of her crib. She loves having all her "friends" go to bed with her. I think she is so dang cute!!!
