girls are ready to head to church
Ready for church...
everyone posed for momma before we left and even again at gam's
our kids at gam's
When we were almost to the church, Karlie was talking about how hungry she was. I was telling her that soon we would be having our little birthday party and I then started listing the food we were going to have....when I got to the sausages, I remembered that they were simmering on the stove. AND that I did not remember turning them off. We had been gone from home for over an hour. We were at least 40 mins away...and church had not even started...needless to say, Karl dropped us off, turned around, 'booked it' home and turned off the stove. So glad the house did
not burn down.
Gam and Pop pose by the trees at PCC
and Karlie did too...
Then we headed home, to get ready for Christmas eve birthday party for Jesus. The anticipation and excitement of that one night should be bottled up and sprinkled on everyone each day. I think Jolie had enough for all of us. She could hardly sleep.
I used the candle from the service for the cake. And I sprinkled sugar in the shape of a snowflake...it went well with what Louie Giglio preached on at the service.
Christmas eve Pjs...They loved them this year...sometimes I do good at pj pickin' sometimes not. Shek was hoping I didn't get him another set of hot pants...it was just short pants. But I got it right this time.
Christmas Morning Highlights.
Shek looking at all the gifts
Shek received lots of altheltic wear and sox. He was especially proud of his Nike socks that Gam and Pop got him...He requested those sent her an email link so she would know exactly which kind and he's over the moon about the socks...who would have 'thunk' it?
Karlie has always wanted a sock monkey so this year...she got all kinds of sock monkey stuff.
Gam got a Wild Olive tee shirt with Run the Race on the front and a scripture verse on the back...Perfect to wear when she walk/runs
Cinderella is always a hit.
Zach didn't know what to think about this can of chunky chicken soup from Gam...especially when she said
It was full of Gift cards to eat at Chick fil a gift cards.
Karlie received a repurposed makeup table...that Gam and Pop fixed up...it's awesome. She's wanted one for a long time and was really surprised.

Merry Christmas 2013...can't believe it's come and gone already.
