Blessings from the end of the year!!!

Friends played a big part in the year for Kelsey as she transitioned in to middle school ... the phone is ringing always, the texting is always going, the computer is always on ... it is full swing tweendom here :). She is blessed with girlfriends that are nice.
Kelsey and Isabella making a gingerbread house ....
Landry is growing like crazy and loosing teeth like CRAZY~ in one week he lost two teeth. He is such a big boy, he has pulled all the teeth himself :).

We are blessed to have my Uncle Sam (yes my Uncle Sam not a joke) living across the street from Daddy and Jean so he can look in on them and help out when needed. He has taken Daddy to a few chemo appointments to give Jean a break. He loves his dogs too and this his a picture of him and Molly -- there are 2 more pom's at home.
We are blessed that Daddy's chemo treatments have been a huge success! He is now starting his maintenance chemo! How awesome is that?! Prayers do have power and a positive attitude will take you a long way. The moment he was told he had stage IV lung cancer he told us he was going to beat it. Way to go Papaw!! :) We are so thankful that the maintenance chemo will be 30 minutes each time instead of his normal 7 hours he had been doing. It will be a year long process. What will 2010 hold for us all? More blessings I am sure! Do not forget to eat at least a spoonful of black eyed peas for good luck and to have money in the New Year ( a southern tradition ;) ).
I still need to work on my Christmas post and photos. Happy Happy!

A Very Merry White Christmas

We were so excited to have a white Christmas! It was very magical. Grandma Janet and Uncle Michael made it to our house from Kingwood just in time before it started snowing really heavy. They were excited to see the snow too. We built a snowman .... always a fun thing to do when it snows.

And is it only Texas kids that love the trampoline so much that they do not care that it is snowing ... they still want to jump and have fun! :)

Look at our friendly snowman. He is still standing today (Sunday) but his head is very tiny :). It is still pretty cold outside and they are saying we "might" see some more snow flurries this next week - maybe New Years Eve.
I will work on the Christmas pictures soon .... have a nice restful Sunday (after all the Cowboys did win and we have playoff spot! :) )

We had a SNOWY morning ....

We woke up to a big surprise this morning ..... SNOW!! Yes it is so crazy to see snow in Dallas this time of year ( we are lucky to get even a little in February). It fell fast and big flakes but by 10 am rain started and then the snow was gone :( The kids will be very disappointed they were hoping to play in it after school. Maybe we will have some more. Stay warm!!

Kelsey, Landry and Sadie before school this morning.
