Christmas was a wonderful time spent with family & just enjoying being together. Our family is really close & we all genuinely enjoying spending time together. It's just really neat to see the younger ones starting their own families & being able to watch the excitement of the children as they open up their presents is really cool. And I almost forgot.... we woke up Christmas morning to a beautiful scene of snow! How magical is that? :) This is Stevie wearing his Santa suit. He had to put this on before he could open presents! What a cutie! Here are some of us enjoying our dinner. Everyone getting ready for opening of presents Caiden opening his "mow" that Grandma got him. If you know anything about Caiden, he lives, eats & breathes tractors, or "mows" as he likes to call them. This is Jack & Caleb, two of the cutest babies in the whole world! This is Jonah opening a present with his Popi All four of the little guys.

Tonight we girls (with the exception of Jack & Caleb) :) had our monthly movie night & we had so much fun! We watched the movie Elf so of course we had to decorate in the movie theme. We hung paper chains, snowflakes, & white lights all over the living room. We had spaghetti (minus the maple syrup), & Katie made & decorated sugar cookies & we had lots of candy. Lesa brought her world famous popcorn which we all loooove!!! We had a quiz at the end of the movie and Katie got all 18 questions right, Hannah got 17 right, but of course they've seen the movie a hundred times! The boys were so good tonight. I think they like movie nights. Here's a few pics of the decorations. I actually built a small Empire State Building out of Legos just like they did in the movie & was quite proud of it if I do say so myself. :) Here's cute little Jack & Caleb. Tomorrow is our annual Family Progressive Dinner & I'm so excited! I'll post pics of that too.

We had fun with Caiden today, taking him to the park with Nana, & then he came over to our house & played for a couple of hours. He's so cute! Here's Caiden enjoying an ice cream cone. We met Emily & Danny at Taco Mamacita's tonight & it was really nice to spend some time with the newlyweds. :) This place also has the best tacos! We pigged out! They have some really cool decorations & here's one of them. This was a shot of the moon tonight. Cool, huh?

Caiden's 2 yr b-day

Today was Caiden's birthday & we celebrated with a firefighter party. Bethany decorated everything with firetrucks which Caiden loves! He was so cute opening all his presents but I think he liked his "mow" the best that Memaw got him :) Here are a few pics.

wedding shower

This weekend we had a wedding shower for my niece Bethany who's getting married in August. The theme was Hawaiian & everyone dressed in bright colors. We had a really great time & she got some very useful things for her & Shadrick's new life together. I realized that Emily will be getting married in less than three months! The time seems to be flying & I'm sure it's going even faster for her & Danny. I'm excited for them to start their new life together. :)

4th of July

This weekend was so much fun! We drove downtown on Saturday night & got a great parking spot just in time to see some fireworks. Then on Sunday night we thought we could get in the same spot to watch the fireworks but there were thousands of cars on the road, all trying to get downtown.I've never seen soooo many people in one place in my life! So we just parked in a grassy median on the interstate & had a perfect view. The show was amazing! Here are a few pics. Then on Sunday we celebrated the 4th with a cook-out at Linda's house. We had some great food & a wonderful time being with family.
