Fun times for sure...

Mamaw and some of her great-grandchildren...

It was the usual Christmas run-around for us..everyone seemed to enjoy there selves...I know we are priceless..and ever is our lives...with that said I really tried to take in the small things this Mamaw and how she enjoyed this Christmas..Lane how after all of the toys Santa brought him still likes the simple things..a box...he played and is still playing with...David and I (just like all of you) try to get just what we think our child will like...but once you really stop to think... maybe even as when you were a child it's the small things... the simple things in our lives that makes us happy...a joy that money just can not buy!!

Happy Holidays from our home to yours,

Creating Christmas Memories!!

Let them be little.....

Lane and Layke...two of a kind!! Alison and Layke..
Tracy and Bailey..
Lane and I...
Boys making some tasty cookies..
Lane's cookie..
How cute is this?!?
Okay try to guess my snowman only weighs 100 pounds! LOL!!

So we decided to get the boys together and make Christmas ornaments and cookies...we had such a great time..I actually think that me, Alison, Tracy and Ashley all enjoyed making the ornaments...a little more.....we kind of took!! If you hadn't guessed yet my ornament is the blue one with a toboggan..however it does favor an old! We sit and made fun of each other's ornaments all night..Alison is the crafty one of the bunch...but I have to say I did give her a run for her money!!

Winter fun!!

Can you say waterpark in the WINTER?!?

Layke coming down the slide.

The fun slides!!

The boys posing..

How neat is this setting for Santa?? Finally he sits in Santa's lap..with a little bribery!!

We set off on a mini vacation to a water park close to Louisville called Pirates Bay...even though the trip was pretty short..Lane still managed to ask how much longer..about fifty times. Once we got there..I was a little hesitant about getting in considering it was hmm 23 degrees outside, but to my surprise it was very warm water and all. We all had sooo much fun and yes if you know me very know that I'm probably the biggest yes I hit the slides wide!! Then after we were done there we decided to have a little fun we went to Indiana to shop...we were really enjoying ourselves until we went into Kirklands....well.....Lane decided he would knock everything over in the whole STINKIN STORE!!! I was at my wits end with him and was heading out the door (just picture this) the door handles are less than 10ft. away and I'm thinking okay we haven't damaged anything yet and I'm almost out of here..(now imagining slow motion)..all of the sudden I hear a loud thud...I slowly turn around and look and......yep you guessed it there lays MY son on the floor with a snowman (his size) right next to him..I could have died...I think to myself should I act like I don't know him and hide.....but of course I went over to help him AND the snowman up...I realized the snowman's nose was...uhhhh...lets just say unfixable if that's a word!! So..I turn to see who saw..should I tell... or hit the door....and of course being the nice perfect little preacher's daughter...I raised the snowman up jerked Lane up.....and raced out the door!!!LOL!!!

We also went to Bass Pro and that's where they had Santa's workshop..everything was, games, crafts. This was Lane's first visit with Santa since he was two. He has finally overcome his fear...whoo hoo!! All in all we had a great trip...just hope there wasn't any hidden cameras in Kirklands!!!:)
