Christmas Surprise

Finally, we don't have to keep it a secret. My brother, sister in law and niece flew in for Christmas and surprised my parents. We've been planning this since July but we got stuck in traffic because of the interstate being closed in Jacksonville due to flooding. It took us 3 hours to get from Jacksonville to Bryant!!!! We missed the arrival but the boys were surprised when we finally got there. My parents were so shocked when they opened their door and there was a baby in a box! My dad thought someone had abanded a baby at their house. Then, he looked over and saw Jeff and Amy. They were sooo surprised. We've had a wonderful visit and will be going to ElDorado later this week to visit my family there. Hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.

Last minute shopping

ok, so somebody remind me next year about how bad it is when I wait until the last minute to shop for Christmas!!! Landyn and I went out this am to finish up a few last minute things: pick up more cards because I ran out, stocking stuffers, dinner stuff, 2 more gifts, etc. People are just so rude!! I think next year, I'm giving gift cards. No more fighting the crowds and rudeness. Now, I feel much better! Except for this horrible headache I got when I hit my head last night at our Christmas party. Will post pics and the story later when I can see better-think I may have actually given myself a slight concussion!

Crazy Day

wow!!! I shooped today from 11 am to 5 pm and I just have one thing to say-WOW!!! Jonesboro was nuts today. Guess that's what I get for waiting until the Sat before Christmas, huh? Anyway, I marked everything off my list and only have 2 gifts left. YEAH!!! Now, where are the wrapping elves?

Crashed Computer

Got to love it when your computer crashes just before Christmas!! Good thing we have jason's little laptop we can use! Anyway, we've survived the Christmas parties at school, and the endless list of "things we have to do this week! When will life slow down?
Finally picked up Christmas cards today-got tired of Walgreens calling me to tell me they were ready. Went with the middle picture of the boys laughing-it just fits them!
Jason and I went on a date this evening: dinner at Lazzaris and then a Wal-mart shopping trip. Must be a sign of old age. Wanted to got to Target but really didn't want to fight the crowds @ the mall.

Christmas Card Photos

Well, I'm trying to decide which photo to use for our Christmas cards. I like to do things last minute!!

Children's Christmas Musical

Today, our children's ministry presented The Mystery of the Manger:It's the Gospel Truth. Kordyn was a 007 guy. The 2,3 and 4 year olds sang Away in a Manger. Well, Charley Claire sang, Landyn sang softly the first verse, Max, Kelsea & Craig listened and loved having a microphone to play with. It was so fun to watch them both. Kordyn really got into it with moving his head as he said "whoooo". Jason asked him yesterday if he knew his lines and Kordyn said oh, yeah. Today we figured out why he had no problem learning them, he only had to say "whoooo" about 5 times!!

Happy Birthday, Landyn

Landyn is 4 today!! I can't believe that he's already 4 years old! We had a great time celebrating his birthday last Friday with family and then tonight, we got to pick the restaurant for dinner-Mazzios. I figured it would be Fat City since that's his fav but he went with pizza. An interesting choice considering that he didn't even eat any pizza tonight: salad with red dressing, ham squares and croutons then oreo dessert pizza.
Photo 1: Landyn and his "wife" Sophie Puckett-she calls him her husband! Her dad and Jason work together but the kids didn't know each other until Montessori.
Photo 2: Landyn with his friends: Houston, Wyatt and Luke. Ethan had already left for the day.
Photo3: Mrs. Herman helping Landyn with the music box. When it's your birthday, you get to open the special box and turn the music box for it to play "Happy Birthday". Then, all of the kids take turns telling the birthday child something special like: happy birthday, you can come play at my house, etc.
Photo 4: Landyn with his Thomas cake last Friday night
