Basketball and Teddy Bear PJ Day

Today is Teddy Bear PJ Day at Hannah Grace's school. She has had her PJ's laid out all week just for this morning. She jumped right out of bed this morning, which is very unlike her, ready to go to school.

Faith felt left out, so she is going to stay in her PJ's all day. I wish I could have too!

Samuel had his first Basketlball game this past Saturday. He did great and scored a basket. He has another game this past Saturday and like his sister is so excited, his uniform is hanging on the end of his bed.

Have a great day!

Hey Sharon, don't you think Faith needs a haircut?!?

Friday Family Funnies-Late

I'm sorry that this Friday Family Funny is late. Faith had her 3-Year-Old check-up on Friday and she came to work with me and I didn't have time to log on. Anyway, for my faithful readers, all two of you - I am sorry.

Faith's check-up went great on Friday, she weighed 31lbs and the doctor said she was perfectly perfect. She was amazed at how long she had been potty trained given that my other two were over three before they were. Faith did great, so I told her that we would go have a lunch date with Daddy and she could choose where we would go. She said, "I want to go to Mexico". In Faith language we gathered that meant she wanted to go eat Mexican.

Samuel had his first Upward Basketball game on Saturday and hopefully I can share those pictures with you tomorrow.

Have a great week!

Friday Family Funnies

I don't have a funny from our kids this week, I just couldn't think of anything specific this morning. Of course, we have had funny moments this past week...

...last Friday night, was "Family Fun Night" and we stayed home and sang with Samuel's karaoke machine he got for Christmas. That was funny!

...Seth puked up a entire jar of Blueberry buckle baby food all over the living room floor. The kids thought that was funny, I didn't so much.

...The kids were acting silly before bed Thursday night, showing us their "muscles".

...and many more, pretty much everyday in our house is funny!

I told you I sat some goals for 2007 and I would share with you when the Lord allows me to fulfil one of those goals. Well, I also want to share with you how I have already failed in one of those goals, 12 days into the new year (I really have failed at more than just one!)

One of my goals was to send Birthday cards, on time. I have failed that this week. Our wonderful friend, Lana, had a birthday yesterday and nope - no card in the mail. Our other good friends, Scott and Sharon, their son, Caleb turned 14 on Wednesday and did I get a card in the mail? Nope. So there you go, be encouraged if you have already failed with a goal you set for 2007 - you're not the only one. So by God's grace, I will strive harder this coming week and send a belated birthday card.

Another goal that Travis and I set was to eat more healthy in the coming year and to be more healthy when we go to Walt Disney World this summer. We're not saying we are on a diet - we think that only sets us up for failure. We both have done well with this goal this past week. Travis has so much will power, it is amazing. The word is spreading, my husband, who used to HATE salads has had a salad fours days this week. He said last night he realized that, come Sunday, it will be the first week in his life, that he remembers, not having a french fry. I am very proud of him. Pray that God will help us become more healthy so we can enjoy our kids more. The picture is from our anniversary dinner. Hopefully, the next picture I post of us will be of a smaller us.

Have a great week-end!

Final Christmas Photos

Alright, I know that I am behind again on getting you caught up on Christmas, I am just so busy, that I haven't time much comptuer time.
So, here it is, a few last picture from Christmas 2006:
We had a wonderful visit with Mammy, Popeye and Cookie. They were able to attend church with us on Christmas Eve, which was a nice treat.
They brought Granny Hill and Nanny Ray along with them. It was so nice to have them in our home. We had a great time! Granny wrote me later that she had a great time and it "didn't hurt me at all". I'm glad they both made the trip,
I failed terribly as a mother this year in getting cookies made for Santa. In my head I was going to make sugar cookies (from scratch) and let the kids use cookie cutters to make adorable Christmas shapes and then let them decorate them (again, with homemade icing). Can't you just picture it...Well in reality, I went out on Christmas Eve and bought sugar cookie dough, already in squares, for the kids to make Santa's cookies. They did get to roll them in sprinkles!
Thankfully, my kids loved the cookies squares and we all had fun and "Santa" enjoyed his cookies.

Here they are, ready for Santa!

That's it, no more Christmas pictures. I'm done. We had a great Christmas together and are having a great start to 2007.

Friday Family Funnies - Who Is that Big Guy?

Travis' grandfather, who is 86, was remarried to Irene, who is 88, on Christmas Eve. We met her for the first time at the family Christmas get together. Pop introduced Travis to Irene, neither of them hear or see very well - Irene looked up at Travis and then asked Pop - "He sure is big, is he a wrestler?"

Have a great week-end!

*Note I have had a busy end of the week at work and the girls have been sick, so I will finished updating you on our holidays next week.

A Visit with Memama and Granddaddy

Yesterday when I shared about the girls birthday's I forget to post a picture of Hannah Grace's school Birthday snack. The day of her Birthday snack, the church that I work at was broke into the second time in two weeks. That day they had made a mess of my office and stolen my computer. I was not able to go to Hannah's school for the snack, but Grammy went for us.
I did tell you yesterday that the kids stayed with Memama and Granddaddy for a couple of night. My mom captured some great pictures of the kids while they were there.
More tomorrow....

Happy 2007!

Happy 2007 to everyone! In this new year, I too, have my list of things that I would like to do and change in 2007. I was going to post it, but after I have thought about it, I think I am going to keep it between me, my husband, and my Jesus. When the Lord allows me to fulfill one of my goals - then I can share with you how He helped me. I pray that He will help you fulfill all your goals, also!

Now, I said that I would try to catch you up on what has been going to in our lives since Thanksgiving. We have been very busy with work, school programs, birthday's, anniversaries, parties... I told someone at church on Sunday, the best thing that my family needs is our routine back. We have enjoyed the time off from school and work, but we are a routine family and we need that routine back.
I think I will start with the girls birthdays. Faith turned three years old on December 15th and Hannah Grace turned four years old on the 19th of December. We had their birthday party early so that everyone could come - that was great, but I seemed like we celebrated birthday's for weeks. Bubba was such a good Big Brother with Princess stuff EVERYWHERE! That week-end, the kids went and spent two nights with Memama and Granddaddy. They had a great time and it was nice to have time for Travis and I during the busy times.

For their birthday's Grammy and Big Daddy gave them tickets to see Disney Princess on Ice on the 15th. Mommy and Daddy took them and we had a great time. Mammy and Popeye had given them Wal-mart gift cards, so they each bought a new Princess costume; Faith went as The Little Mermaid and Hannah Grace was Cinderella.

On Hannah Grace's birthday we got together with our great friends the Adkins and the O'Shield's at Chuck-E-Cheese. What fun we had!
So that's the girls birthday's - more of our busy month tomorrow.

Again, Happy New Year!
