A Bunch of Pictures

Here are a bunch of pictures from the last few days!  I hope you have a great and safe New Year's Eve!  Look for a post tomorrow in honor of our SIX YEAR OLD!

Connor's birthday party in LaGrange...

Uncle Stan and the boys...

Connor and Kyle had a new game of shooting the arrow into a water puddle.  So much fun!

I loved the reflections in the puddle!

Brotherly Love!

The little boys and the big boys...

Boys Will Be Boys

Apparently, this is the year of the Christmas weapon at the White House!  We (Santa, I think) gave Connor a bow and arrow and gave Kyle a nerf ball gun that shoots kind of like a bow and arrow.  Then, Uncle Stan gave them Nerf guns.  They have had a great time with them!  And, so far, no major fights or injuries...so far!

For some reason, I did not get many pictures of Connor yesterday or today playing outside.  Yesterday, Davis and Jane Anne got here and today, Andrew and Mills and Rob got here.  Our boys have seen A and M this afternoon, but Jeremy and I were at a movie and missed them before they had somewhere to be tonight.  I'm looking forward to seeing all five boys together tomorrow and Sunday.  Davis, though, has been great with Connor and Kyle.  And, they have had a great time playing with him!

One of their favorite things to do has been to see how high and how far they can shoot the arrow.  Only one has gotten stuck on the roof (thanks to Jeremy)!  :)

This picture is a little TOO close of Kyle, but I loved his eyes in it!

I cannot believe that Connor will be SIX years old in less than a week!!!  NOOOOOO!!!

These next few pictures show the MANY faces and expressions of Connor!

Hope you are having a great Christmas week!

Christmas Part 1

We are having a fabulous Christmas!  We have visited family in Atlanta and LaGrange and Santa came to visit while we were asleep!

On Monday, we met up with Mimi and Bobbles and Aunt Francis for lunch in Lawrenceville and to go to a movie.  The boys loved "Walking with Dinosaurs"!  That night, we headed to Jeremy's cousin's house for the White Family Dinner with Jeremy's Dad's siblings and their children (and their children).  We had a great time catching up with everyone and the boys had a great time playing with a couple of older cousins as well as Harper, Evie, and Millie!

Tuesday morning, we headed over to Gigi's house to see her a for a little while and then we headed to lunch.

After lunch, we headed to LaGrange to visit Sunshine and Granddaddy!  The boys had to make Christmas cookies for Santa with Sunshine.  After dinner, they headed to bed early so that they could be ready for Christmas Day!

Christmas Morning was a lot of fun for the boys (and for the rest of us).  They have really enjoyed playing with all of their new toys.  They were beyond blessed by Santa, us, and my family.

Kyle had to help Sunshine make grits!

The boys, especially Kyle, have had a great time with Uncle Stan!

Our night ended with me going to sing them a song before they went to sleep.  I suggested that we sing "Happy Birthday" to Jesus and Connor said that he wanted everyone to sing, so I went and got my mom, my dad, Jeremy, and Stan and we all sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus!  Perfect ending to a great day!

Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday Dear Jesus.
Happy Birthday to YOU!

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!"
