Welcome Gatlin Holt Norman

This picture was taken at Outback. This was our "shower" for Nikki...which was exactly what she wanted!
Sweet baby Gatlin was born June 19th at 2:53 am. Weighing in at 7 lbs. and 2 ounces! I made it to the hospital about 3:15 am. Luckily, I was the first there to see him. He is so precious!!

Aunt Bridge got her turn!

Summer Time!!

Even though the Summer keeps Stephen & I VERY busy with our jobs we manage to squeeze in some FUN times with our boys!

Here is a picture of Owen at the 1st beach trip of the season! What a smile!!!
We met up with some of Stephen's side of our family at Deadwood for Dinner and some fun play time! Owen loved "hanging" like this!
I managed to get all three of "my fellas" through the tiny window on the train!!
Here is all the Grandkids minus Kelsey! What a sweet group!
Scott, Megan, & Grace invited us down to stay at their cottage for a night. Who could turn down a night on the beach?!?! NOT US!! Here is Stephen, Grace, & Owen after playing hard and waiting for some dinner!
Grace & Owen are exactly 9 months apart! They are too sweet together!
King Owen in his recliner!

I believe this was taken on Father's Day. Happy Father's Day to a wonderful man that I'm lucky to call my husband!
We went to dinner at Capt. George's, walked on the beach, and took the boys to see Cars II. We had too much fun!!

Here are the boys while eating dinner!
Silly boys!
Stephen and his boys while walking on the beach!
Owen was dying to go in!
My loves!
Me with my babies!

Waiting to go in and see the movie.
Movie time!
Hi Owen!!


This was Stephen's 3rd year playing T-Ball. This year he was on the "Grasshoppers"!

Getting a little help from Dad!
Up at bat...
Owen had to get a turn after the game!

Spring (very much behind)

Well...spring came and went and I still didn't get any pictures up here. Sorry...spring just happens to be when Stephen & I both kick it in full gear with our jobs so we get behind on other things! I just wanted to get a few pictures up here of the boys...they sure are growing fast; TOO FAST for me!

Stephen & I took the boys to the waterfront in Manteo for lunch and a walk one day. We had a fun time!
They are something else!!
Of course we had to make a stop by the Aquarium! Owen is a huge animal lover (were not sure where he gets that from) so he LOVED it! Stephen of course has been there many times but enjoys it still!
Check out that smile!
Spring wouldn't be complete without picking strawberries. Stephen doesn't care very much for them but Owen couldn't stop eating them!
See what I mean?!?!
Me with my boys!
He sure is a cute mess!!
Nana & Owen!
For Mother's Day Stephen got me 2 picnic tables. One for us and one for the boys! We have all enjoyed them! The boys could eat outside every night.

Stephen's 1st Livestock Show!

This was Stephen's 1st year of being old enough to compete in the Livestock Show & Sale. He and his goat Parker enjoyed themselves for the 60 days they were together. Actually our whole family especially Stephen & Owen fell in love with Parker! Stephen did so good at the show; we were very proud of him! Needless to say he was one sad little boy when it was time to depart with Parker. But, he says next year "I'm getting another goat and I'm gona name it Parker Jr."!
All smiles:~)
Stephen & Parker decided to join the "Dress Your Animal Show" as commercial fishermen!

Owen's 1st Hair Cut...

It felt like it took forever for Owen to get any hair. But, the time has now come for a hair cut!! He didn't need very much cut off.. but he did need a "shape up"! It appears Owen is going to have curly hair so I was very sad to cut those curls off. But, he did such an excellent job! Please excuse me in these pictures. I was getting my hair foiled so we thought Owen would sit better in my lap!

Owen likes to comb his hair!

Owen sure is growing mighty fast these days. Its hard to believe that we have already had his very First Hair Cut. He sure does make my heart melt each and every day!

Happy 6th Birthday Stephen!

What a group of silly boys!!
This year Stephen decided he wanted to have his birthday party at Pizza Hut. His Dad and I were quite happy to hear that!! Since Karli's birthday is only 2 days behind his we met her and her girls at Pizza Hut so we would have an even bigger crowd! So, his buddies came over after school to play for a couple of hours before headed out for some Pizza! We had a great time!!

It is so hard to believe that he is 6 years old! When Stephen & I started dating he had barely turned 2. He is such a sweet boy and quite smart if I may add so myself! Happy Birthday baby.. we love you to the moon and back!

Happy New Year!

Owen's first new year...2011!! (Hope you can see his shirt!)

Picture catch up...(December 2010)

I couldn't resist putting these pictures up!! These were taken at some point after Christmas but before January 1! (I PROMISE I'll be better!) Look what I found Mr. Owen up to one morning while trying to get ready!!
This was our last "big" snow!
