Christmas Season is here and we have started it off with a ride on The Polar Express.

Walt LOVED his Golden Ticket. He didn't want to let go of it. 
We missed Daddy, but I had a great time with my sweet kiddos.

We arrived!!! The North Pole is beautiful.

We were so excited to see Santa Claus!! 
We made our annual visit to Parker Tractor to sit on Santa's lap and tell him our all of our wishes. 

Lilly loves our Christmas yard art. 
Piper, Lilly and Hayden were the cutest penguins in the church Christmas program!

What is Christmas without a little Christmas caroling on a hay ride? We had so much fun visiting members of our church who were sick or older. The kids had such a great time....and we were so happy that Anderson got to our house just in time to go with us! 
We have had an eventful and wonderful start to this Christmas season! 
To GOD be the GLORY!

MSU Football, NWCC Football and Thanksgiving 2016

It's EARLY!!! We are having to make way to many 11:00 o'clock ball games this year, but we are faithful fans, so off we go. 
 We picked up Anna Lauren on the way to Starkville and the girls had so much fun on campus. 

 What a game!! Because the season has been so awful, we kinda expected to be gone by halftime. Texas A&M was ranked #4 in the country, so we were the underdog. LOOK OUT!!! The DAWGS came out and we WON! It was such a great game. Lilly made it through her first full game because no one would leave to take her to the tent, HA!! 
 It's become a tradition to stop in at the hotel for a "bathroom break" as we get into Starkville, with the hopes of catching a glimpse of some of the players. :) We might not see any players, but we do get a pic sitting on top of Bully every time. 
 The last home game of the year was finally a little chilly and it was at NIGHT!! We lost, but we still had a great time. Our friend, Mike Watson, came down from Arkansas and got to experience his first SEC game. 
 We love Uncle Andy! So very glad that he was able to finally join us for a football game this year. 
 DONALD GRAY!!! Our favorite player! So happy that we ended up getting to see him so much this season! 
 What a treat! Three of the NWCC football players came to read and visit with Walt's 4k class! He was so excited to have them come.
 He thinks that they are his best buddies. 
 Thank you Alex, David and JR for coming to read to Walt's 4k class at MHS! 
 YAY!!! Aunt My and Stephen are getting married. He proposed to her on her birthday, November 12 and they are getting married on December 31. 
 We are so happy that Aunt My is getting married and that Stephen is becoming a part of the family! God is GOOD and we are so blessed. 
 Thank you, Aunt My for taking Lilly and Adelaide to their zoo field trip. They had so much fun, 
 Shopping with these girls is fun!! 
 Walt's 4k Fest was a huge success! 
 The turkey, thanks to Gammy, was the HIT of the party. They loved seeing that bird in the middle of the table, watching it get carved and then eating it. 
 Walt and Addison, cute little pilgrim and indian, cooking some pudding. 
 My little Indian with his fruit kabob.....
 Walt and the rest of his crew loved peeling the carrots and the potatoes. 
 We had such a good time together! He LOVED the fact that I was "in charge" of his party. It made his day. He is so different than Lilly in that respect. It makes him so happy to have me be in charge or come to his events. 
 He HAD to get his picture taken with Mr. Turkey!! 
We had so much to be thankful for this Holiday Season. Praising God from whom ALL blessings flow.
