All things Christmas (part 1)

Christmas caroling at the Gateway apartments with Memorial Road church of Christ:

 Dylan looking cool with his buddy:

Dustin--always getting a laugh!

Jodee and me trying to stay warm!

Josh and me...

Santa pictures at the mall (I will upload the actual pic later!)

Finally, decorating the tree....each kiddo has their own new ornament that they pick out.  They love it! We always decorate the weekend of Thanksgiving..my blog is just a little behind.

 Dustin's honors choir caroling in downtown Edmond:

We love this time of year!  It's busy, but oh so much fun!

Zoo meet

The first gymnastics meet of the year is called the Zoo Meet..always has been.  It's a crazy mess of people!  But oh, so much fun! Jodee had a great meet--already qualified to sectionals!  Way to go, Jo!  I am not quite talented enough to put a video on my blog, so if you want to see the meet, look at my facebook page!

These are some of my favorite unedited pics from that day:

Beautiful gymnast

 Look at those straight legs and pointed toes!!


Woohoo!!! On the awards stand!

A judge and a gymnast....

And a random funny picture of Dylan sound asleep:

More Halloween fun!

Okay, here is my sad attempt to look like Hannah Montana....and I have my 'dad' here, Billy Ray.  Yes...you might have heard that we performed that evening, the Hoedown Throwdown.  Yes, my 'dad' upstaged me and really went all out while I laughed.  I'm definitely no Hannah Montana!  But, it was fun...and the dance is stuck in my head now.

 Fun at my mom's:

 Did you know you can carve mini pumpkins?  We had no idea till Jodee brought some home from school...and we just went for it.  It turned out pretty cute!

Halloween and Vocabulary Parade

Taylor Swift, anyone?

Taylor Swift, Jason, and Darth Vader


We got to meet "Otto" from Science Museum Oklahoma at Haunt the Zoo.....so much fun!

 The kids (well, 2 of my kids) participated in the vocabulary parade at school...very neat idea. Find a word you didn't know already, and dress up like that word!  We have wingding and confection:

More updates to follow!

I know I have skipped a lot lately....but I promise to catch up!  Everything will be a little out of order, but oh well!

I just have to say how tremendously thankful I am for my family, my friends, and my God.  This week has really opened my eyes...and the need to appreciate everyone and everything God has put into our lives.  We are all so blessed with the hope of eternity with Him.

Phillipians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
