Ending out 2017!

I don't know where this boy comes from, but I'll take him! I send him down the road to our recycling center to drop off a ton of recycling, but he returns with a 20 pound video movie recorder from 1981. HE was more excited than he was on Christmas Day and said "Mom I found an actual relic!".  He is excited to take that monstrosity apart and see what he finds......

Well, for the first time ever, the Tigers played in the actual Liberty Bowl so we got to stay put for this years bowl game.  Sadly, we lost a heartbreaker by one point, but love seeing the stadium filled to capacity!  It was freezing, so we layered up something fierce!!!

Ms Claire got 5 inches cut off (tangle drama) and the new hairdresser she saw asked if she could try to curl it.  Claire said curls never stay in my hair....the lady said I can do it!  So for 2 full days Claire had some cute loose curls!  I need to learn that lady's trick!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I was so busy on Christmas Day, that I didn't get around to posting....but I hope your day was filled with little blessings...I know mine was.  I decided this year to actually take a few pics of my home decorated at Christmas...I always forget to do that!

 Claire asked for 3 things this year only.....Kendra Scott necklace, kindle paperwhite, and gel pens.  I'm glad to say Santa delivered!She got the most adorable Panda Driver cover for her golf driver.  It's hilarious!
Jesse, will be attending his first ever Pro-Life march in January in DC, and he received a new coat and warm accessorites to match!  Jesse received a new phone, some custom golf balls, new NB shoes, and a Pi Kit to build a computer (???) He was all smiles!

Excited to come downstairs!

 Jesse and Claire playing Santa at Gretchen's parents house on Christmas Eve...they will do Christmas with the Hollingsworth side next week!
Little Santa and Lance!  Merry Christmas!!  Thank you Lord for bringing us your only Son!

Christmas Spirit Abound

Well, we gathered last night for a fun evening of Christmas cheer with our friends The Websters....We started out at The Rendezvouz, and ended with warm drinks and treats at The Peabody.  We people watched for 2 hours and within that 2 hours we saw a couple get engaged, the Memphis Tiger basketball team, and Ms Tenneessee!

Patiently awaiting treats!

and yes, the night ended with my car in a boot.  There was a mishap with Lance when he paid on the little machine, and this is where our evening ended...but we smiled about it and made light of the situation!  

That gingerbread house smelled so good!

We love St. Vincent de Paul!

Merry Christmas!!!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Well the Christmas festivities are in full swing here and this weekend was spent celebrating with my mom's side of the family.....aunts, uncles, cousins...we all had a great time celebrating the season!

 And of course it wouldn't be Christmas for Claire and I without the Nutcracker.  So we dressed up, went out to Claire's fav Chinese place, and had ourselves a great time with our friends the Websters and Wades!!

 Chloe and Claire ready to be entertained!!

Merry Christmas!

Dashing through December

Well, sweet Claire and her closet 6th grade friends had a gift exchange after school yesterday, before their first exams get started!  Love that she's still friends with these girls since kindergarten!

Claire performed in the 6th grade choir concert Monday night and the songs were just as lovely as our Soprano 2!
