We Wilsons love life and are having a blast with our little darling, Ella Rose & our newest little cowboy, Isaac! They are the most fantastic parts of our lives. We are just getting started on our family and hope to have plenty more (...plenty may be a strong word...). Life is good!
"Making the decision to have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside of your body."
Our Favorite Things...

I Love Sisters
Every gal should have at least two sisters.
And Speaking of Sisters...
...my sister, Melissa is a very talented jewelry designer. She creates one-of-a kind custom jewelry. She does beautiful work, and I'm so proud of her. Take a look for yourself - Melissa Marie Jewelry. Her jewelry can now be seen at Celeste in Arlington, TN.
We went to a Halloween party and Ella Rose was dressed up as a little green monster. She had a hard time convincing anyone that she was scary.
Jonathan was Richard Simmons and I was Excited About Christmas. Neither of us had a hard time convincing anyone that we were scary. His shorty shorts and my big behind jeans and blue eye shadow were enough to scare anyone.

Today I realized that this year is almost.over. Whaaaaat??? Just yesterday Ella Rose turned one. Tomorrow is Christmas. January is birthday number two. Isaac is 4 months next week! Is it just me or does time go even faster once you have kids...and then double fast once you have two. How sad. My kids are going to be grown in a minute. I don't like it.
My superawesomefun bff Jessica (503 Photography) was in town in early September and snapped these shots of Jonnie with our babies. I think they PERFECTLY depict his fathering style. He is so sweet, attentive, and loving to our babes. Ella Rose and Isaac have completely captured his heart, and that's just one more reason he has captured my heart.
Oh man. I LOVE my baby daddy. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful man in our lives.
Last weekend I got to go on a much needed girlfriend date with Jenny while our husands stayed at home with all the kids. We went to Candace's wedding. And what more perfect outing for two bffs who love food, fun, and photos?? None that I can think of.
On our way to the wedding we decided that since we don't get out much, we should document our evening with a little photojournalism. So here was our night (in pictures)...and I think you'll be able to tell that we don't get out much...
Us on our way to the wedding
Us leaving the wedding (Dangit! We forgot to take a picture AT the wedding!)
Jenny showing off her spanx in the parking lot of the church
Me laughing hysterically at Jenny
Jenny & me with the Bride - Candace (Bennett) Joseph
Jenny & me with Josh - our other datethat we picked up at the wedding
Us reallllllllly enjoying our wedding cake. We unashamedly asked for corner pieces, and we got 'em.
J-Hen, K-Full, and E-Wil having a blast. K-Full settled for hanging with us when Tina wasn't around.
What the? Don't ask...
Girls just wanna have fun. (Tina, Jen, me, & Kristi)
Dance #1: Get yo groove own...
Dance #2: Doin' the butt
Dance #3, and it looks like we have a wannabe back there (nice one, Mer).
Our 4th and final dance, a slow one. We were without spouses, but that wasn't gonna keep us off the flo. At this point we were concerned that some of the other guests may have been concerned about us.
Us - being exhausted, waiting for the bride and groom to make their grand exit
Tina lovin' on Kev's cheek
Us being grossed out by Tina & Kevin's PDA.
Ohohh say can you see....
Me getting excited to hold a sparkler, and to see Candace leave
Wait. I gotta concentrate so I don't set anyone on fire (Jenny!).
Jenny inserting herself in front of the getaway car to take one last picture. I'm pretty sure by this point every other guest at the wedding thought we had lost our minds.
Good times, Jenny. You are one FUN date. But since I have 2 kids and you have 3 1/2, this may be our last date for a while...
You'd think that we would be able to get a good shot in one take...afterall, Jessica is a pro-fessional and I reallllly like to take pictures (and do it quite often). But after this "photo session", I realized that we are quite photographically challenged when it comes to setting up the self timer to take pictures of ourselves. It literally took more than 15 pictures to get one good shot (where we were actually ready and looking at the camera). I like candids though, and we got plenty of those!
Love you, Jess. Miss you already! Can't wait to see you Thursday. Mwah!
Jess getting in place so I could know where to set the camera, but then I forgot to set it to self-timer and when I pushed the button it just took a regular ole picture.Duh #1.
We had no idea The Cakes was back there making a fool of himself.
