I know it's been awhile......

Since my last post.. Let's just say that with the Holidays I have neglected my blog.. I think it is a good excuse, time with family trumps my posting :o) I have a lot of pictures to upload and a lot of posts that will follow soon.. I just wanted to say that I hope you all had as wonderful a Holiday season as we did..

Happy Birthday (tomorrow) My Beautiful Friend!

I am so thankful to call you my friend! You have been there for me in sad, frustrating and most importantly happy times! I only hope that I am half the friend to you that you are to me. Thank you for all your honesty!! Thank you for all the advice you give!! Thank you for all the smiles and laughter!! I hope that your "day" is as beautiful as you are!! All my love!!

Santa Baby, you're scaring me a little

Last Christmas Luke was just 5 months old and he did really well sitting on Santa's lap. This year at 17 months, not so much.. He was not at all happy that we dropped him off in the lap of someone with a really long white beard and glasses!! Sister joining him helped a little, but not enough! I don't have the professional shots just yet, but I do have a few from my camera..

Emma and friends

Emma's social life has certainly gotten a lot more active lately.. It is rare that she is not at a friends house or their is one or more friends here.. I am glad that she has finally started spending more time with ALL of her friends.. It is fun to watch them interact, hear them talk about their woes and see them all grow from year to year!! She has attended a couple of parties this year and I am sure there will be more to come.. Here are some fun shots of she and her girlfriends this past week!!

Thanksgiving Fun!!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. We headed up to Willburton/McAlester, Oklahoma to be with Bob's family. We were so thankful this year that Don, Meredith, Nora and Elsie were able to join us at the property. We don't get to see them often enough and Luke had a blast playing with his cousins!! We had a wonderful meal, great time with family and fun with friends.. Bob and his brother were able to attend the 15th annual (we think) Turkey Bowl with some old friends from their school days. They had a really good time and were keeping up pretty well with the younger ones. The kids had a great time while the daddies played flag football, but they had even more fun when the game was over and they could all tackle Don. We hope everyones Thanksgiving was as blessed as ours! Here are a few pictures from our time in Oklahoma!
