A Great Start to 2017

Our cat, Dori, is too cool for the NEW YEAR! She says bring on the year 2017!! 
 My best friend and I weren't looking or feeling our best, but we had a great during the break catching up and laughing. Her 4 babies are precious and my 2 babies love them. I can't believe she has twin girls. Sweet Baby Grace did not want to take a selfie. 
 January always proves to be a good hunting month. Lilly, Will and Walt had a great time getting some meat for the new year. I think that they killed 3 deer in that one day. 
This little sports nut fell fast asleep looking at his football cards. 
 Walt and I decided to go watch the Bulldogs play basketball the night before school started back. Our Bulldogs didn't win the game, but were super excited to see the Golden Egg and the St. Petersburg Bowl Trophy. 
 It was a beautiful Saturday, so while Daddy was hunting during the last weekend, the kids and I went to Starkville for some MSU Basketball.
 Lilly and Bully are such great friends. Walt was hiding behind me and gripping my leg. 
 Selfie time with Mama!! 
 LOOK!!!! It's JB!!! Our favorite MSU baseball player. We are so excited about baseball season. 
 OHHHH MYYYY!!! It's Nick....Walt said all football season long that he needed to see Nick and get his picture. There he was just standing in line to get a drink at the concession stand at the hump! What a fun day! 
 We were so sad to say good-bye to our KT, but we are super proud of him. He is off to Southeast Missouri State to play some football. We are praying for you!!! 
 The second semester started off  with a bang. Walt has been talking about and talking about the number 100 and it FINALLY got here. They celebrated by decorating capes with 100 items and wearing them to school They rode the bus to the movie theater and saw the movie, Sing! Walt decorated his cape with 100 MSU footballs. 
 Lilly had career week at school and she decided to dress up as a Veterinarian. She loves her animals and was so excited to take care of them. 
 Well, we are soooooo thankful and praising God that our Mr. Horace is okay. He suffered a stroke and it has effected his speech and walking. He is getting better and better every day. Lilly has been so worried about him. We went to see him in rehab Sunday after church and she just hugged him the whole time. Sweet Sweet girl I have!!! 
 We have been praying lots for our neighbor and friend, Martin Bell. He had some surgery this weekend, too! He had half of his thyroid removed and we also found out that the cyst attached was NOT cancer. We have lots to be thankful for in our neighborhood. Praising our Lord for all of this good news.  
Sweet brother and sister....most of the time!!! 
Our sweet Aubrey Claire is growing up. She is becoming a beautiful young lady and we were so happy to be able to watch her in her first beauty review. She did wonderful and are so proud of her. 
The day FINALLY arrived for the Daddy/Daughter Dance. Lilly gets in the car and never tells me anything about school, what she needs to bring, what's in her folder...UNTIL she got the note about the dance. She picked out her dress that same night and the dance was 3 weeks away. I walked upstairs later on that night and she had laid her daddy's clothes out, too.....tie and all! :)  
They had a wonderful dinner with their friends and their daddy's before the dance. 
Daddy and sweet!!! 
I love this picture!!! 
While Daddy and Daughter were dancing the night away, I got to take these sweet boys to eat Mexican. They keep me laughing and I am thankful for every minute that I get to spend with them. 
2017 has started off wonderfully! We couldn't be more blessed. We are praising God for all that he does for us and for his hand of protection on our family!!!
