Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone a Merry Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas is only 4 days away and I seem to be so behind this year with presents still left to buy.  But it will all get done somehow someway.  This is one of those years I have to write about to remember what it was like when my kids really didn't want a whole lot for Christmas.  Because one of these days, the lists will be a mile long.

Joshua's List: "real" football pads
Marah: play make-up and an Easy-bake oven
Macy: probably her very own baby if she could tell us

For a parent, those lists are not too bad.  Maybe Santa can handle it!

Nashville Trip

I am finally blogging about our trip to Nashville and cheating a little bit by using some of Brooke's pictures and trying to use some of Amy's (but for some reason I couldn't figure out how to enlarge Amy's - you will be able to tell, because they are the small ones you can barely see). 
We had such a wonderful time!  Thank you mom and dad for such a memorable trip!  We will remember it always.

So these 2 girls loved getting their pictures made!  The boys - not so much.

Cortney and Trey

Macy napping! She has never been the child that would stay in her stroller, but she did wonderfully in Nashville.  I suppose it was because she had so many beautiful things to keep her attention, besides all the pushing she got from all of the other kids.

Rodney and Joshua

Ready for ice!

This right here seems to be all that Joshua is consumed with these days!  Football!  He always has one in his hands and he is constantly wanting someone to throw with him.  For Christmas this year, all he wants is the "real" football pads.  For mommy, I am loving this because football is my absolute favorite, but for daddy - he was kind of hoping Joshua would get interested a little later on.  Rodney said before we even had kids, his son would wait until Jr. High to play football.  Simply for the reason of not wanting him to get burnt out, but I cannot say that we will be waiting until Jr. High.  Who knows.  Rodney should have been a coach because he is so GOOD at teaching the kids how to play something.  This is where all of his patience comes in.  I love watching him teach the kids!  He is just a big kid himself.

Down and ready

I had to snap a quick one in the middle of their practice!

Rodney even has Marah running the plays...

Learning the correct position...

Love these guys!  War Eagle and Go Lions!
