What's Happening!

Hello there! It's been a while since I have landed on this site! Don't worry because I haven't forgotten you all! I still read (or creep) all my blogs daily. Keep those good post coming. Love my daily reading! Lately, I just haven't found the time to sit down a write a little about our world!
So here it goes...What's Happening in our world! (By the way that's one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite children's book characters..Tacky the Penguin! Check out his books and read them to your kiddos! They will love him! I feel a little like Tacky on most days...Tacky is a strange bird, but a GOOD bird to have around! One of my other favorite lines from the books!)

What's happening is Christmas break ended and a new year began, we went back to the school and work daily grind, Ethan started playing flag football (which is one of the many reasons God gave me boys! I love football and have loved watching my baby boy rock on the football field!), David started coaching flag football (learning patience is a hard thing, but fun for a wife to watch!), Kandy is remembering that following a toddler around is hard work, Ethan (and his mommy) read over 300 books in the month of January, Ethan earned his trip to Chuck-E-Cheese (mommy is still waiting for her award for reading all those books), David ran a marathon, Callen is learning to say a few words, Ethan celebrated the 100th day of school with a tower of cups, Will and Mommy had their first date, Veggie Tales Live was a blast, learning how to manage life with a toddler and food allergies, David got a new job, Kandy and the boys got new medical insurance (that was fun), preparing for our mission trip to Honduras, it rained, Mems and Pops came to visit, it rained, Mammaw and Pappaw came to visit us, it rained, Uncle Brad came for a visit, it rained, Mems and Pops came back to see us, it rained, grass is turning green, Will got his first baseball uniform, Kandy juggled her first Saturday of baseball opening ceremonies and football games, Ethan gave his first report in front of the school, David and Kandy had a date night, we continue to pray about some new things for our family, went to the Houston Rodeo, and are enjoying a little R&R on Spring Break!

That about sums it up! Enjoy my favorite pictures from our end of the world! God is so GOOD!

Our December Visitor

Milton, our Elf on the Shelf, arrived early December and the boys had the best time with him this year. He has been around for the last 3 years, but this year was the best yet! We had so much fun with him! Mommy and Daddy included! He arrived one morning with breakfast for the boys! He must of been talking to his friend Elfonzo, our friend Nolan's elf, because we all got snow and breakfast from the North Pole. :) Milton was busy around our house this month! Take a look at Milton's Adventures.....

It is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! We had a great Christmas filled with family and sweet memories made. This year Will was so "into" everything about Christmas! It was so much fun for David and I.
