New Years!

New Years at the beach for us this year.  We were asked by some friends to share news years at their beach place and thankfully it worked out.  We all, included Josh's parents and the kiddos, headed out early to spend some family time there before we split off.  So beautiful!  It was a little chilly but not too bad.


The kids enjoying some beach time.  Charlie loved the holes Colt and Addie were digging, they didn't like how much he liked the holes.  Addie kept picking him up out of her hole and putting him in Colt's hole.



They were covered in sand by the time we left.


Addie and that thumb!


Getting ready to head out.  So thankful for Nana and Pops watching them for us:)


We had a hard time finding reservations to eat anywhere.  Michelle was got reserved us a place down the street that was yummy!  They also served us complimentary bottles...yes bottles...of champayne per person.  So, we had 5 bottles of champayne on our table.  Let's just say most of them stayed very full the entire night. 


Us, Swanners, Haglers, Brannons and Arnolds.  We were off to watch fireworks from the boat!

So funny things is, we got on Lance's boat, rode out for quite a bit, it was super windy, cold and very dark!  Josh and Tommy were on spotlight duty so Lance could actually see to get where we were going.  We could all tell that Michelle was stressed out about entertaining, Lance and not being able to see AT ALL.  But those of us just there for the ride were fine.  Finally parked...and the fireworks started going off.  IN the FAR FAR distance...maybe around the house...we left from.  We could barely here much for watching fireworks...but it really was a fun time.  Once the very very very far fireworks were done, we headed in and hung out at their condo.  Happy New YEAR!

Christmas on the Farm

Christmas at Granny's:)  The kids love going!  And Grandma is the cutest little thing!  We missed the Corbitt's this year.  They have such a busy schedule during Christmas!






Ryder and Addie playing with the tiny presents under the tiny tree.

My Dad...mmm....Addie thought he was really funny.  I'm just glad he came.





So sweet watching Grandma open her presents.

Addie loves her a baby!




Glad I could spend some time with these two.  Two super sweet girls!  Lara and Kristiana, all with our babies!

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus!! I think Santa did OKAY!  Not too much...looks like Addie got several dolls just like she wanted:)  When the kids came downstairs they came into our room first (as directed) and we all went to the living room together.  The joy on their faces was priceless.  But the funny thing is they just sat on the big chair and looked from afar smiling.  I eventually said...ya'll can go touch the stuff!  Usually you see kids dive right in!  But don't worry, they did!

Sweet Charlie's second Christmas:)

Colt excited about his new glove...nice glove!
Colt's love for a soft blanket!  He always steals the decorative ones from downstairs, now he finally has his own. 

Oh Santa knows best!  Look at all the balls!

He was so cute gathering all the balls with his legs.

 Addie has all her things layed out:)
Charlie's favorite toy! 

Marshmallows and golf balls!  Why not?

And for the second year in a's 80 degrees outside.  We finally made it out...the whole neighborhood was out enjoying the pretty weather and new toys.


Addie and I making her fairy garden.  I spot Charlie in the background playing:)

 And that's a wrap!

''Twas the Night Before Christmas

It appears Charlie doesn't want Colt to hold him, but it was late...I just invisioned a cute Christmas picture with all of them looking at me smiling, excited about the morning...but this is what I got.  That's alright...surely next year I'll get one...maybe even without all the yelling (and sweating).




Ok, never mind, that's it.  Charlie to bed.


Saying Bye to JJ!

And shut it down with a little iPad watching.  They look so cute...and the playroom actually looks a little clean...mmm.
 Santa is coming in the morning!!!
