Christmas card 2011

family fun day

On Friday, Warner had his class party and a half day of school. We had a fun day planned to start off the Christmas holidays! Our first stop was the movies. We took the boys to see Alvin & the Chipmunks - Chipwrecked. It was so cute, and Jackson sat in the my lap through the whole movie - success! After the movie, it was time to go see Santa Clause. We went with the Bass Pro Shop Santa this year. I didn't really know how Jackson would react. He was fine until it came time to sit on Santa's lap. I just sat him up there and walked away. He didn't last long!

Then it was time for Starry Nights at Shelby Farms. This was so much fun!! The boys loved sitting in the front seat, looking at all the lights, and seeing what they could find. The lights were beautiful.

I am loving my kitchen!! My favorite thing is the overhang we added at the last minute. The boys sit here for breakfast, snack, meals, etc. It is something I am really going to enjoy. I love having them in the kitchen with me!!

Oh Christmas tree

Thursday, December 15, we finally put our Christmas tree up. Our boys were so excited!! I had almost decided not to even bother with it this year. (I know, that's bad) But we did, and I am so glad!! Merry Christmas!!!

Kitchen, Kissy's visit, & Warner's Christmas program

We have countertops!!!! I am so so happy with how it all turned out. It was not fun to live through, but now that it is coming together, it was totally worth it. I even got to cook with week...YAY!!

Kissy to the rescue!! So thankful for my mom. She will interupt her week & change her plans to drive over 7 hours to come help me. We worked so hard, got everything put back in my cabinets, baked 15 cakes, and even had a little fun eating & shopping downtown.
Warner had his Christmas program at school this morning. They rang their hand bells and sang several songs along with reciting scripture. It was such a blessing!

Warner's Kindergarten class

Chris started on the back splash yesterday. I am so thankful for a handy husband - it is amazing all that he can do. It is looking great!! Just as I had imagined. We are so close to the finish line!!

My dear friend and graduate school classmate, Amanda Price, went to be with Jesus ealier this week. She was an amazing person, loved the Lord, loved her family, and lived her life to bring honor and glory to God. She had an impact on every single person that knew her. I would love if you would pray for her family. She leaves behind her husband, Ron (coach of the New Albany high school football team), and three year old daughter, Molly Addison.

I have been holding on to these two a little tighter this week. We are not promised tomorrow.

Photo shoot at Hopson Plantation Thanksgiving weekend. We miss our cousins!

We had our first fire last week - loving this cold weather!

Jackson loves to help daddy with his cereal. Ready to have our kitchen back, so we can stop eating so much cereal.

Trying to get in the Christmas spirit even without a Christmas tree. We are waiting to get our tree up until after this kitchen renovation is over.

We got a little surprise gift this week - SNOW!!

We have cabinets!!!!! Countertops are coming today....and I will be a busy little bee unpacking boxes and getting things put away.

And....we've had two sick little boys around here. Strep throat!!!! Warner last week and now Jackson this week.

Here's to hoping my next post has pictures of a finished kitchen and a Chrismas tree!!!
