Christmas crafts

These were Christmas crafts I got from the internet. They were suppose to be kids crafts, but were really too hard for little kids and involved a lot of adult help.  They still enjoyed them!

Making Gingerbread Houses with Teenagers

The teenagers had a Cristmas party.  They made gingerbread houses, played X*box, Karaoke, watched movies and goofed off. A good time was had by everyone.  Selena and Shea, won for best house!

Christmas Tea

These pictues are from a Christmas Tea they do every year at church.  The guys serve and the gals enjoy the evening.

Lots of Love

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!  We had a great one!  Everyone has been so excited, with their new gifts.  Lots of family time spent with new games.  Also, lots of skinned knees with new bikes, scooters and pogo sticks.  School goes back in 5 days, I'm glad and sad.  I'll enjoy some quiet time but I'll also miss the sleeping in and easy going days.  I'll also miss the older kids who will all be gone by the 2nd.  Keith has been off for two weeks too.  It doesn't seem like he's been here that much because everyone has been home.  It won't be too long until our anniversary (Feb) trip.  I'm looking forward to that!  This season has been filled with Lots of Love!

Basketball Game, Ice Skating, and Pictures!

I finally broke down and bought a camera, then Destinee told me she bought me one for Christmas.  I opened the one I bought and used it, so I can't take it back and I really like the one Destinee gave me for Christmas.  I think I will give mine to one of the teenage girls.  I'm sure they would love it!

Two weeks ago we took the kids to a UGA girls basketball game.  The kids read for tickets, and we had enough for everyone to get in.  Last week we took everyone and went ice skating.  This is the first time ice skating for any of us.  There isn't anywhere close and we drove about an hour to get there.  It was worth it!  The kids had a blast.  I entertained grand kids and walked through the park all decorated with lights.  Those are memories we will all cherish.
