Christmas Tiime

This was a really great Christmas. We had a good time watching Savannah open her gifts and playing with her new toys. Jordan, Tannor, and Haleigh also had fun watching her. We started off Friday evening at Melinda's parents. Saturday morning we opened gifts at our house. Then Saturday afternoon we visited my parents. Needless to say by Saturday night we were all tired and full. Sunday night we went to church and received the message by one of our very own, Jordan. He did a great job speaking on the Greatest gift of all... Jesus. Here are a few pics from this past week.

Playing Catch Up...

Trying to play catch up since the last time we posted. We have had 2 birthdays, fun in the swimming pool, and our county fair. Jordan turned 18 on his birthday which was actually way back in June. We got him a small cake for home as we celebrated his birthday during the youth camping trip. Tannor turned 16 in August. Savannah has been learning how to swim in ours and her papaw's pool. Savannah rode her first...and last ride at our county fair. It was the merry-go-round and even though mama was right beside her she screamed and cried until I finally took her picture. We met David, Lois, and Leila, our friends from Pt. Pleasant. Leila rode almost all of the rides but we couldn't convince Savannah to ride with her. Here are a few pics from the last few months."Big 18"

A Visit With The Foy's

Today we had a much anticipated visit with the Foy's. We had a GREAT time. It rained just about all day but we did manage to get in some playground and pool time and a short dip in the ocean. Sophie and Savannah started the day off on the playground swinging and going down the slides. We drove to McDonalds for lunch and the girls started to open up a little. When we got back to the condo we hit the indoor pool due to the rain. We tried the beach after the pool but the rain struck again. We had spaghetti for dinner and then it was time for the visit to end. We wish we could have froze time for a while as it flew by so fast. We had a great time today and are looking forward to meeting them and others from our travel group in the future.

Myrtle Beach 2010

We finally made it to the beach. Savannah did not like the sand the first day. She screamed and cried and would not put her feet down, we had to carry her everywhere. Melinda's brother and his girlfriend are staying about a 25 minute drive away, we drove to their beach today. She did a little better and played for a while. First from the chair, then from the blanket, then she walked around a little. We went crab hunting tonight, Savannah walked in the sand most of the way. Here are a few picks from today.

Celebrating special times!

The last two weekends were amazing! The weekend of the 28th we celebrated Jordan's graduation, it is still hard to believe he is out of high school and getting ready for college! I just can't figure out where the years have went? He has grown so much and has made us very proud. Graduation was such a happy but sad moment for me, this is one Momma that has a very hard time letting go! We also had a great Memorial Day weekend full of family, lots of corn hole tournaments and great food!

enjoying the warm weather

Today was so nice, we stayed outside till way after dark and at 9:00pm it was still 75 degrees out. We haven't opened up the big pool yet so we bought a small blow up pool for Savannah to play in today. Sorry about the indecent exposure on the first picture but I had to add it because she had such a huge smile. I can't believe how long her hair has grown in 20 months! I can't believe how much she has grown! Last year she was not so crazy about the water, this year she LOVES it! We can't wait until we go to the beach this year.


who needs extensions!


Come on in, the water is fine!
