Christmas continued...

Andie got an American Girl doll from Santa so this is how we go everywhere.

My nephew Tony checking out his loot. This guy racked in the Academy gift cards. Move over Academy here he comes.

Parker and his new Texans jersey. He's gonna be so cute in this.

Watch out Taylor Swift this girl will be writing her own music in no time.
Right, Cassidy?

Connor and his new nerf gun. I think my brother and sister were having more fun with this thing.

Andie got herself a digital camera. She was taking pictures of everything. When I mean everything I mean it. She was taking pictures of the TV if she saw something she liked on the screen.

Gray and his new little car. So cute! He loved getting in and out of this thing. He didn't even want to be pushed just sit.

My littlest nephew Brennan. He got some new cars. Too cute! He was making motor sounds driving them around.

The girls with our new coffee mugs.

Christmas was so much fun and gifts just kept coming for Andie and Gray.
Now I just have to make room for all the new stuff.
What are y'all doing with all this new stuff?

G'day G'day...

it was a very g'day.
This is a song Andie has been singing through out the holidays.
The lyrics go something like this...
g'day g'day it was a very g'day
on Christmas morn'
when Christ was born
the Shepards came to say.
g'day g'day

How cute is that song?
I mean, it was a very good day!
Some 2000 years ago Christ was born in
the least desirable conditions,
a stable. Wow! A king born in a
stable. I just get sobby eyed thinking about that.
I mean, the King of Kings Lord of Lords
born in a stable for me and for you!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas
celebrating the birth of our Savior.
We had a wonderful time with family and friends.
Don't you just love this time of year?
Here are some pictures from Christmas morn'

Happy Birthday Jesus!
One of my favorite traditions we have started with Gray and Andie
is one that I just think is so fun. On Christmas Eve we bake and decorate a
cake for Jesus' birthday and the best part, they get to eat cake for
breakfast. I mean what kid wouldn't love that.

Andie's mini concert

How funny is this?! Andie decided she needed to practice her songs for her Christmas program the other day. She so graciously invited Gray and I into her room to see a "mini concert." She was very serious about this concert. She wrote out the lyrics to her songs and sang from her song board, as she called it. Gray and I were told to take our seats.
Check out the seat Gray choose.

Her mini concert was wonderful!
Pictures from the her school program will be up soon.
Happy Thursday!

Breakfast with Santa

We had such a fun time on Saturday morning eating breakfast with Santa. It was at the gym that we go to. I was a little skeptical of what a basketball court would look like all decorated for this event but, I have to say they did an amazing job. Andie and Gray had a wonderful time. They had lots of things to for the kids to do.

We ate breakfast of course.
Andie decorated a cookie. I thought Gray would
not want anything to do with that, boy was I wrong.

We took a carriage ride.

Gray did a little dancing.

This is when I discovered he too wanted a to
decorate a cookie. He literaly was screaming and fighting
Andie over her cookie and we know she was not
going to give that up. So we went over and decorated a cookie for Gray.

He was very proud of his snowman cookie.

I was so proud of Andie she went right up and
sat on Santa's lap. Gray on the other hand
was not so sure of this bearded man so, this year, momma
will be in the santa picture.
