Christmas Eve in Kentucky!

Christmas Eve was spent with the Leaver side of the family. We had a wonderful Christmas meal followed by gifts! The kids –including Zoe–enjoyed playing with their cousins.

We left in the afternoon for the long trek back to Memphis. The kids had plenty of new things to keep them entertained until it was too dark to play. We then watched some Christmas movies we had brought along and listened to some Christmas Cds.

Zoe had an early present waiting when we arrived home. Her picture was chosen to be on the Jones Soda label! She will be on their Green Apple Soda! Only 1% of the entrants are chosen so we were very excited that they chose ours! Way to go Zoe!

Here’s Zachary handing out presents!

Cookie Baking!

Aunt Tammy invited all the nieces to her house to bake and decorate cookies. She provided each of the girls with their own dough to roll and shape. It was a lot fun!

Christmas Party

We had a wonderful time at our homeschool Christmas party and potluck hosted at Providence Baptist Church. The kids enjoyed the story “If Your Missing Baby Jesus” followed by a nativity craft. We also made gingerbread houses, sang Christmas carols and exchanged books. Everyone had a wonderful time.

Preparing for Christmas!

December is here! We have been very busy putting up the tree, wrapping presents, making crafts, and taking pictures for the family Christmas card. As a kickstart to the season, we attended the Singing Christmas Tree at Bellevue. It was a really nice performance.

In addition to Christmas activities, Troy and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse on December 10. It was fabulous!

Here are a few pictures that did not make the cut for the Christmas card!

October Pictures

October has turned out to be a very busy month! Zachary has played a lot of soccer tournaments this month–(State Finals are November 19th. Go Dragons!)! I have decided to put all the pictures from our various trips into one post to simplify things somewhat!

Happy Birthday Amy!

I had a great day! Plenty of birthday wishes and a day off from school! The kids decorated the dining room for a family party of pizza and birthday brownie! (Troy and the kids made a pumpkin brownie instead of cake for my birthday!) This was followed with Zachary’s soccer game!
