Christmas Diaper

Georgia's Granny stitched her a really sweet little pair of Christmas Panties with her name on them. All five of the Great Granddaughters born this year have a pair. I wish I had a picture of Georgia, Payten, Allison, Molly, and Kate together but it is hard to get that many babies together! Thank you Granny for your hard work making them! We love you!

Christmas Photo Shoot

So I am a little behind on getting Christmas cards done this year and decided that tonight I would take pics of the kiddos and order some cards ASAP. All of this in the hopes of getting out some Christmas cards with the kids pictures on them sent out by not later than Tuesday...... Well I thought I would just post a few of the pictures I got to take of my sweet, beautiful children. So please know that we do wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year even if the cards don't get done!

Lucas could not even be bribed to take a decent picture

Georgia decided to go to sleep....

After this one all the other pictures include Georgia screaming at the top of her lungs....

The Grinch.....

Yes, the Grinch try to steal Little Miss Georgia's Christmas spirit, but her Mother would have nothing of it. Actually, Stephanie saw this little outfit while out shopping and just had to have it.

Have to say, even the Grinch looks good on Georgia.

Lubbock is....

COLD. Right now it is snowing and very cold. I don't know the exact number but somewhere in the range of high 20's. I don't like that.

Anyways, I just wanted to rant about the cold and snow and Lubbock. I have been here since Monday, leaving today and trust me I will not be wasting any time getting out of town.

Maybe Stephanie will post pictures of the kids as I know that is the real reason everyone checks this thing out.

New Pictures

I am sad to admit this but I do not have any really recent pictures of Georgia but these are just a couple of weeks old. And since I have not put anything up in a while they could be considered recent. Anyway, things are going great around here. It is a little harder than I had expected to get anything done with one running around like a crazy man and another that cries every time she is put down. Georgia is 4 weeks old now! She had her 2 wk appointment a couple of weeks ago. She was 10 pounds and healthy. She does have a touch of reflux which explains her frequent crying spells. She is on meds now so hopefully we will have this little problem under control soon. Lucas loves her like crazy which means he is constantly trying to help with her. I am very thankful for this but he forgets he is not quite big enough to tote here around. So here are a couple of pictures and I will put some up tonight from today. These pics are from Thanksgiving.....

Lucas & Georgia

What can you say....Big Brother actually likes Little Sister....

For now....

Georgia Comes Home

So this actually happened yesterday but a little late is better than never on getting the photos up. If you really want to know the truth we didn't get home until around 8:30 last night and we did not get around to putting these up until now.

Anyways hope you enjoy a couple of photos of Georgia and Mom as they settle into the new room....

Aggie...Class of 2025

Just for anyone that has any doubts....

Tuesday, November 6, 2007


Yes, the first night is over and it went really good. Little Miss went to the nursery around 10 and slept till 1. After a little late night snack, Georgia headed back to the nursery and slept from 1:30 to 5:30. This of course let Mom & Dad get some rest for the night.

Who thinks every night will be this easy???????

Georgia - Day 1 Photos

Alright, digital cameras have to be one of the best inventions ever. Since we have such a massive amount of pictures, I created a web album for all to see. I know, one more step but it allows me to keep them in one central location.

So here is the link, if you are really obsessive you can use the slide show as your screensaver!!!!

Georgia is Here....

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

This year for Halloween Lucas turned into the Itsy Bitsy Spider! And to anyone who asked what he was he performed the song! I have to admitt I thought it was really cute! Our church does an amazing Fall Festival so Lucas had a blast on the Adventure Train and all the inflatables they bring in! So anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures of Lucas as Itsy Bitsy.

Oh, and the weekend before Halloween, we took Lucas and his cousin Peyten to a little pumpkin patch in our neighborhood. I did not get many good pictures though. It was kind of hard to get them to both look at me at the same time and then add smiling on top and that, well you can see for yourself!

Georgia's Room

Okay so I have 15 days until Georgia's arrival and we finally have a place for her to sleep when she gets here! So here are some pictures to prove it! Obviously there are a few details left to add but the basics are in place! By the way my sweet Mom made all the bedding and the drapes! I don't know what I would have done without her! And my sweet hubby stayed up with Mom and I until 1 am trying to get the walls finished Saturday night! Anyway here are the pics! Oh and the last picture of all the Texas A&M stuff is for my sister and brother in law. My sweet girls from Bible Fellowship gave me a baby shower today and one of my girlfriends gave Georgia all this stuff in honor of Matt! I thought it was cute!

New Orleans Pictures...

One of the guys on the trip is a photographer and he has provided the following photos for everyone. Wish I could take credit for some of the shots but I can't. In fact, I did not even take a camera.

New Day....New Church

This morning we met up with Rev. Middleton from Pleasant Hill and he wanted us to help at his mothers's house today. After driving over there and seeing the total destruction of a house, it was decided that No work could be done on the house. Basically, no one had stepped in the house in over 2 years. There was still food in the refrigarator, which was sitting upside down in the kitchen. So what did we do, take the day off you think....NO way.
About the same time we were getting a little somber about the day and trip, Rob from Ignite/HimNi called and asked if we could spare a few to help with his church. Rob is working on restarting a church in Uptown off of Magazine Street called Valence Baptist Church. It is pretty cool story and I will go in depth later. But right now, just know we worked all day the church, which did not get flooded from Katrina but no less had not been touched or cleaned up since the storm. We cleaned, we mowed, we pulled weeds, we got dirty. The awesome part about the whole day was as we worked people from the neighborhood would come up and want to help, want to know about the church and really wanted to know when the church was going to open back up. It has been dead for about 12 years. Rob was blown away by the reaction of the area, and we got to be there as the first group in and really be involved in the rebuilding of what could be a very special church.

Well it is time to go to dinner so I better get dressed and meet up with the group.

Another OLD Topic....Matt is 30!

This also happened a while back but again I failed to post it on out blog. Matt turned 30 on October 2! We had a quiet dinner at Rudy's that day as a family but the weekend was full of fun! Friday Matt went to the season opener of the Dallas Stars and watched from the Ford Suite curtosey of Drew. Saturday morning was a long game of golf and then his SURPRISE birthday cookout with some friends and family! I think he ended up having a great 30th birthday! Here are some pictures from the cookout.

First Days of Preschool

Okay so this is a really old topic but I never put pictures up of Lucas' first day from this year. So I thought I would put up one from last year and then this years to show how he has changed! He has grown up so much this past year! So here are the pics!

Demo - Day 1

We stared the gutting of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church this morning. 16 of us hit the inside with force and had the entire thing gutted and stripped down by noon. It got really dusty and really dirty but it was all good. We only had to send one to the doctor, a minister of course. He took a board to the face. Don't ask, just know it happened.

Anyway, we are currently at the seminary cleaning up and getting ready to hook up with HimNi again. Rob & Greg are going to show us around the lower 9th and some of the worst hit areas.

Here is a picture of the church we are working on and with....

New Orleans Mission

This morning I left from Prestonwood's parking lot with 15 other Young Marrieds and we headed to New Orleans.   Several months ago our minister brought a mission trip to good to pass up, to go and see the destruction in New Orleans and help out any way we could.  Well after 9 hours of driving and countless bumps and swerves in the van, we arrived.
  This evening we hooked up with a group call HimNI.  Check them out on the web at  Basically it is a monthly meeting for young adults in New Orleans to worhip and fellowship.  It was cool setting and we got to hang out with the brothers, Rob & Greg, who started the program.  They have a huge passion for Christ and really for the young adults of New Orleans.  
  Anyway, I am going to try to update this through out the trip with photos and thoughts from what went on.  Tomorrow we are going to go gut a church that has sat vacant since Katrina.  Should be fun!!!!

Pee-Pee in the Potty

Lucas now being the big 3 year old boy that he is, has decided that he would pee-pee in the potty. Not sure if this is because he is tired of wearing pull-ups or the fact that he gets chocolate each time he goes in the potty. For me it would be for the chocolate.

Anyway, this a big development as he has gone the last couple of days without incident. Now if I could just get him to mow the yard and trim the hedges...

New House, New Braunfels, Not so new ER...

This Labor day weekend we headed down to New Braunfels to see my parents new house. After 26 years in Athens, they moved to New Braunfels last year and been living in an apartment. Well last week thier house was completed and we went down to see it. Man, was it nice. Well worth the wait and time in an apartment. In my very humble opinion it is super nice. Nice job Parents.
During our visit with the parents, Stephanie decided to get sick though. Not just a little head cold sick but a major, see what you a had for lunch later that day sick, if you know what I mean. Of course, since my parents are new to town we didn't know any doctors or hospitals to go to. So about 8:30 Sunday night we googled hospitals and found McKeena Memorial. Walking up to the door I could see Stephanie thinking, "I would rather die, then go in there!!!". However, we got into the ER and they shuttled Stephanie up to the Labor & Delivery. Once up there all was good, the nurses were super nice and the rooms very clean. Several bags of IV later we got to leave. The best part about the whole deal was I got a new lawn mowing glass!!!
Oh what a weekend...

Then to top things off, I felt compelled to get sick yesterday and spend the day at home, altenating between bed, bathroom & couch.

Fun Times at the Harrington Household....

5 Years.....

60 Months...
1825 Days...
438000 hours...
2628000 minutes...
157680000 seconds...

Anyway you want to put it Stephanie & I have now been married for 5 years. Go us. It has been a fun time this first five. We had the great blessing of Lucas and are about to add little Georgia to the mix. We have had the privelage to travel and enjoy the world and country. We have owned a home (or two). Bought a car or 3! ok maybe 4. Spent holidays with families that love us and set examples of what a Christian marriage should be. But most of all we have got to spend the past 5 years together doing it all.

Just think what the next 5 has in store!!!!

Lucas - 1....Daddy - 0

Lucas tonight did the unthinkable, he out fished his Dad!!!! Lucas & I went down to the neighborhood pond tonight to spend a little time together before I head out of town for work and he caught a whopper. Yes, he caught the only fish of the night, and to top it all off, he did it all by himself. Well almost, I cast the line out, but he reeled it in. In fact, I wasn't paying much attention, as I had a hook in the water also. He kept yelling, "Daddy I got a fish, Daddy I got a Nemo." Of course he yells this everytime he reels in so I wasn't thinking much about it, until I look over and yep there it is. His very first fish.

So with out further ado, here is the first of hopefully many fish....

I thought I would make it official by posting it on the blog. Lucas' little sister now has a name! He has now added her to his bedtime prayers. "Thank you God for Mommy, Daddy, Ducas (He can't say L's yet) and Georgia Claire, Amen!" Sorry there are no pictures with this post but I just wanted to share with everyone that we had picked a name for our little girl!

Our Big Three Year Old

Well as you can tell from the pictures we had a GREAT third birthday party! I still cannot believe he is really three even though he has reminded me every thirty minutes or so! This was the first year I was brave enough to make his cake. He wanted a Choo Choo cake and I just happened to find a really cute cake mold, so I tested my cake decorating skills. We also had 48 cupcakes! Lucas took over the decorating on those! We had a lot of fun thanks to all of our family and friends for coming over to help us celebrate. I have more really cute pictures of the kids playing that I will try to get on here tomorrow. So keep checking back for more birthday pictures!

New Chair...

This last weekend we loaded up the family and drove out to Abilene to pick up a new chair. Granny was nice enough to donate one of her chairs from the study to our living room. It was great getting to see Granny for even just the short time we were out there. Anyway, just wanted to throw a picture up so everyone can see the new addition to the living room.
