Christmas Sunday


Christmas Sunday with the family.  Wish I had gotten a picture of Misty and her boys and of me and Audrey (Jeff had to work).  Oh well, plenty of opportunities in the next few days.  This is my favorite Sunday of the year!

Mom’s Birthday


Mom had a birthday this month.  She never wants us to make a big deal of it, but we have to do at least a little something.  We had dinner at my house.  Not everyone made the picture cut, but here is she is with one daughter and three grandkids. And a picture of Heath from that night thrown in, just because he’s so cute!  I am so thankful for my mom, I can’t even begin to put into words how much she means to me.  But I know it means the world to me that she devotes her time day to day to my little girl. Sure does make going to work everyday easier. Love you Mom!

Christmas Program


Audrey and Hope were part of the children’s Christmas program at church this year.  They practiced for weeks and Audrey did so well at every practice.  She is the youngest in the program, but practiced hard, knew all the words, and motions, and behaved like a big girl.  Then came the big day…..and she acted just like a 4 year old!  I’m talking nose-picking, jumping around, talking, and pulling Hope’s hair throughout the performance!  Oh well, it’s something to remember! 

Heath is 3!


Heath is 3!!!! I am so happy Audrey has Heath to grow up with.  Can’t imagine all the fun in store for us with these two.   Notice, the cake- it was a Batman, Pony, Dinosaur themed party (:



My handsome, funny, eccentric, smart, and extremely stylish nephew, Ben.  Can’t believe he is a senior….so proud of him!

Early December


Trying to get caught up on posts before the big Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Audrey’s Birthday photo blizzard!  These are photos from early December, Hope’s birthday, and Christmas parades.


So much to be thankful for!  We had a wonderful day enjoying our families and taking a day to appreciate our many blessings.




We had fun, fun, fun on Halloween this year.  Audrey was the cutest little cowgirl ever!  We went to the Church Fall Festival and trick-or-treated at the grandparents houses and around the neighborhood.  And of course, we did everything with the “besties”, Heath and Hope.  Hope was Pochantas and Heath was a cowboy.  So cute!
