Crazy Husband...Early Bike Ride!

It's 6:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning and Darrell is getting ready to head out on a 50 mile bike ride...CRAZY!! It's cold and windy and E A R L Y !!

Peanut Butter and jelly Sandwiches to fuel up, and a cup or 2 of coffee. He's ready to hit the road!

The sun is starting to peek over the horizon...

There he is, isn't he cute!?

There he goes...sometimes he does 80+ miles, so this is a "short" ride for him today!

See you in 4 hours or so...I'll be here in the nice warm house!

Happy 19th Birthday KYLE!

We all went to Joe's Crab Shack to eat to celebrate Kyle's 19th birthday! We had such a great time. Our family of 4, plus Diane and Larry, Danae, and Mom and Larry!

Aren't they the BEST!

The Newlyweds...

Kyle, Nathan, and Danae...

Diane had the coolest drink!. It arrives at the table a blue color and you dump in the red stuff and it makes a purple drink!

LOTS of food!

They made Kyle stand up and do the Hula while we sang Happy Birthday! He was a good sport...reluctantly!

Nathan taught Grampy some origami at the table.

Happy Birthday Kyle...I am proud and honored to be your Mama. Have fun at the Social D concert tonight! I LOVE YOU!

Nathan's Christmas Concert

Nathan had his Choir performance last night and it was FANTASTIC! All of his friends looked so handsome!

Of course, I had to take a feet picture!

Ms. Voss is such a wonderful teacher and is instilling a love of music into these kids! They sing songs from all genres and the kids have a blast! As you can see, she has a lot of boys in her class! You know she's great when these boys choose to be in her class instead of wood shop!

Fa la la la la

Some singing and some dancing!

My BEAUTIFUL boy!!! LOVE him so much! I wish he would stop growing up so fast!

Grampy and Grammy were there to watch, as always Nathan's biggest fans!

Nathan with some of his buddies.

More friends. Nathan is so lucky to have tons of friends, really neat kids! Most of them play baseball with him, so it is great to see them without hats on their heads and dirt on their pants!

It was an awesome night, I love this time of year!

Awesome Alarm Clock

I know that weird things make me happy, but this is AWESOME!! The alarm clock not only has the capacity to wake to trickling water, crickets chirping and many other "natural" noises, i-pod hook-ups and dual alarms, but (you won't believe this) it shines the time onto the ceiling! In the middle of the night, or early morning, you do not have to lift your head off of the pillow to see the time, just open your eyes slightly and see the time. Oh. My. of my BEST purchases EVER!!

My Girls...

Considering I never birthed any girls, I think God sent me many girls to love at work. These girlies are SO precious to me and I feel like they are part of my family...I pray that I make as big of an impact on them and their Mommy's as they make on me!!

Does it get any better than this???


ALL the beads...

Shoes to match.....

Then...everyone leaves and I clean up and THIS is what I find! One of these Princesses decided to give the baby a haircut!! Poor BABY!! Made me laugh...every day is a good day!!

Baseball in the FOG!

Yesterday morning Nathan had a game scheduled for 8 a.m. and we had to have a "fog" delay. I've never heard of such a thing, but it was certainly necessary! These are pictures of the boys warming up on the was cold, wet, and foggy! Nathan is in the middle with the black sweatshirt.

Grammy and Grampy braved the weather!

The Sunday morning Starbucks Club...

Let's go CATS!!

My cute #15!

Down and ready...

Muddy, grassy, gross shoes!

Finally, the sun shone through and it was a beautiful day, but NOT a great game for us!

The cute!

Nathan pitched, but not his best game...


LOVE watching my boys play ball!
