Happy New Years

I hope the New Year has found you all well. Did you set any resolutions? I usually have the same resolutions each year, lose weight, excercise, be a better wife and mom and be a better Christian and example for others.

We are looking forward to a great year, more fun times with the kids and all of their activities and hopefully some fun times with just Chris and I and of course the usual great times and memories with our family and friends.

Love to you all and God Bless you and this New Year.

Below are pictures for New Year Celebrations.

Christmas 08'

Its been a while since my last post. November was a busy month with my final exams and taking the Praxis (and passing it, yippee). December has been just as busy but exciting as well. We had a wonderful Christmas. Kyle's favorite Christmas gift was his train table that Santa left for him. Heath's favorite...I think he loves it all but his PSP and Bow seems to be his favorite. The holidays go by so fast, I always hate to see it come to an end. I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. Until next time.

Chunky Treat

We had an amazing time "chunky treating". Kyle really got into going door to door and getting candy. He didn't quite understand that he was not going in to visit people. He kept going in random people's houses and making himself at home. I guess it is good that we live in a small town and knew most of the people. We met up with a friend of Kyle's (Barrett) when we first started trick or treating. Kyle loves Barrett. They are almost the exact same age so they were both experiencing the same level of enjoyment and disbelief. I think they were both confused about why they were getting candy from all of these people and why everyone was dressed up in crazy uniforms. Kyle walked up to some grown man that was dressed as a Werewolf and kicked him in the leg and said, "You aren't a power ranger, I am!" We ended the night at Aunt Jean and Uncle Bobby. Kyle was entertaining them and Grandmamma. After we were pretty sure he had worked off his sugar high, we headed home.
Heath went on a scavenger hunt with the church. He went with Katelyn and Carley. Katelyn dressed as Bam-Bam, Carley dressed as a High School Musical star and Heath said he was dressed as the "fabulous Heath Ford", the apple certainly didn’t' fall far from the tree did it? The scavenger hunt was in a corn field in the middle of NOWHERE (Steens, MS). After the hunt they played some games, ate supper and came home around midnight. Chris picked him up so I didn't get to hear about it until the next day but Heath was full of stories Saturday morning.


Below are pictures from the Vickers from their last quick visit.

Disney On Ice

Kyle and I had such a wonderful day today. We went to Tupelo with our friends Gina and Mckenzie Reed-Wood to see Disney On Ice. IT WAS FABULOUS!!! The show was just as entertaining for Gina and I as it was for the kids. If it comes to your area, I strongly reccommend going to see it. The tickets are VERY resonable but oh boy, take your life savings for all the souveniers and such...Cotton Candy (my favorite) was $10.00! CRAZY, but the entertainment was again, FABULOUS!!!

Affordable Decorating

Last week the kids and I decided that we would create our very own Halloween decorations. We put our engenious heads together and came up with paper-plate decorating because that seemed to be what we had the most of in our house.
This was so much fun and I recommend that you all try it.
The directions are as follows:
1. As many paper plates as you plan to use
2. Print out simple Halloween clip art (without many lines)
3. Dark paint, doesn't matter what color because you are going to paint over it
4. Black spray paint
5. White acrylic paint
Cut out clip art (use as a stencil) paint clip art to plate (using it as glue basically), after paint has dried completely, spray paint entire plate, once dry, remove stencil, you will probably have to paint where the stencil was, I chose to paint mine white....be creative and have a spooky good time.

The other pictures of Kyle after he dressed himself in his favorite clothes. No, he did not match but he was so proud of himself. He found yet another worm but fortunately for the worm, he released him to find "Mommy worm".
To explain the picture of Heath, he convinced me that he could drive so I decided to let him show me. He backed out of the garage and drove down the driveway, around the culdasak and back up the driveway. He did an excellent job! My baby is growing up way too quickly.
God Bless
