Happy 2nd Birthday!!!!

So I wish I could freeze time and never let my baby boy grow up. Sad to say I cant and he turned 2 on Friday. Time has flown by so much and i am in aww how big Dayton has gotten. He is very independent, funny, cute, talkative, outgoing, VERY loving...... this list can go on and on. He loves to copy his Daddy, dance around the house, read book and play with his puzzles. Its hard to believe Dayton is 2 and I cant imagine my live with out him.

So this year we had a NASCAR Themed party and it was so much fun to celebrate 2 years with our friends and family. With some Smoked Ribs, Homeade Mac N Cheese, Baked Beans and a cute Racetrack Cake

* So out of all the family pictures we took Dayton didnt look in any of them.

Tyler, Joy and Trev

Christmas Day
Santa Came and brought Gifts
I think that this was at 9:00 and we were trying to wake him up.
I know this wont last because next year he will be waking us lol.
Went straight to the B-Ball (his words)

He LOVED opening up all the gifts

Eric, Dayton and I had a wonderful busy fun filled family Christmas day and cant believe its all over. Hope everyone else had a wonderful Christmas, we also hope everyone has a fabulous 2010.
The new year will bring for us some great new challenges and big changes we are super excited.
For those who don't already know Eric and I both start school January 13. I will be getting an ASA Degree to be a Dental Hygienist and Eric will be getting a BS in probably Criminal Justice, he is still trying to figure out what route he wants to take. It's a little scary because we haven't been in school for a while Eric longer than me but we will get through it together and hopefully be successful.

I enjoy Halloween because i love the oh so cute costumes that people come up with and thanks to a good friend of mine we had one of the cute costumes. After about 3 days of working them they were done and ready to be shown off at our Church Fall Festival. This year Dayton dressed up as Nascar Driver Jimmie Johnson and his good friend Jakob dressed up as a Formula 1 Driver.
I am glad that he isnt old enough to tell me what he wants to be!!!!

GO GO!!!!

Jimmie Johnson and Eric "THE BIGGEST FAN"

and there they go..........

Summer for the Williams

We have had a great summer so far. Dayton is growing so much and has such a great personality. I have posted a few pics of this summer hope this post isn't to long. LOL

~His new FAVORITE cartoon is SpongeBob
(thanks to a neighbor he has all the SpongeBob
toys he could ever want.)

I dont think i can get through a day without heading outside to blow bubbles.

~A couple of weeks ago i thought i would take Dayton on a Mommy&Son date. He probably doesnt know whats going but i still decided to take him to the park and grab an ice cream cone on the way home. Its great to hear him say thank you but the best part of the day was his smile and the excitement he had the whole time those are the moments that make my DAY.

Last month we took Dayton to the Zoo for the first time, and i am here to say i cant believe we didn't do it sooner. Dayton LOVED it so much and he had such a great time. Well I totally forgot the camera but good thing Eric as a pretty decent one on his phone or we wouldn't have gotten these pics of him. The first picture i could of taken a million times because he stood in the same spot for like 10 min, then when we tried to get him to walk he would like move 5 feet and go right back with his head in the posts. Next time i will hopefully remember the camera.

For some reason Dayton has had a shoe fetish lately. I probably would have to say he gets that after me because everyone who knows me or has seen my closet knows i like shoe's. So here are pictures of him in some shoes even though Eric doesn't really think its cool he has pictures with my shoes on, but hey i thought they were cute.
He did put them on himself too!!!!

~Dayton putting on Daddy's new shoe's

~In Daddy's work shoe's

~In my shoe's

~Here I'm my shoe's again right after Church

Kid Kampus

A few days ago Dayton and I went with some really good friends of ours to a fun little water park downtown. We have never been before and i cant believe it, Dayton had such a fun time it was fun to see him get use to the water coming out of the ground. It was a pretty cloudy day so there weren't that many kids so we had to park pretty much to themselves.
Thanks Jess for the pic's

Eric has become a HUGE Nascar fan, so for one of his Fathers Day gifts we went down to Daytona for a fun filled Nascar day. With a behind the scene VIP tour, good lunch, a few hours watching a 3-D movie, doing a cool simulator, and a few other fun things.

Her is Eric in front of the entrance to the inside activities, and me in front of my FAV driver 24 Jeff Gordon.

Here comes the BRIDE!!!!

A few weeks ago Dayton and I flew up to Virginia because my cousin Danielle was getting married and I couldn't miss it. It was a short trip but we had a lot of fun. This was Dayton's second plane ride and he did great I was very surprised. After landing in VA we were greeted by my Grandmama and my birth dad Mike (who I haven't seen in 2 years). I was a great little reunion but we had to rush to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.
The wedding was the next day and it was beautiful. Danielle was such gorgeous bride and i cried like a baby. LOL The wedding brought back such great memories for me. I LOVE to think back to my wonderful day. Eric is my best friend and such a wonderful Husband and Father that I truly do not know what i would do without him. I hope that Danielle and Chris have wonderful marriage.

"It doesn't matter where you go in life, or what you do, or how much you have, it's who you have beside you".


Dayton LOVES to dance so he was right at home on the dance floor

Between the wedding and the reception we went over to the nursing home to see my mamaw. It was a great opportunity to get our 5 generation picture.
