Nice Day at HOME!!

We just stayed around the house all day today. It was great!! We all slept until 11am this morning then the boys spent the day playing with new toys and riding 4-wheelers. Dawn & her boys came over for supper & the kids played for a while. It was a great day! Gavin just zonked out in the chair while watching cartoons & eating Goldfish crackers!! Isn't he too cute!!

Merry Christmas!!

We had a wonderful Christmas! I don't think it could have been better! We went to my cousins' home in Lake City for Christmas Eve & then my mom & dad came home with us. We put out milk & cookies for Santa & reindeer food for the reindeer. We left Santa's special key out for him & said goodbye until next year to our scout elf Zack & then headed to bed. It was a bit of a chore getting Ryley to go to sleep because he was soooooooooo excited!!! The boys got us up I guess around 8. They both got everything on their lists from Santa & mom & dad. Justin appreciated having my dad here to help him wrestle all of the toys out of their packages & remove hundreds of tiny screws to install batteries! LOL!! I have had bronchitis for what seems like 6 months but has actually been about 1 month so after all the gifts were opened I took a little nap!! Which was great!! At lunch my mom made gumbo. Delicious!! Later on in the afternoon we went to Justin's parents' house to exchange gifts with them. All in all a great day!!

Gingerbread House

While I was out running errands Justin & the boys built a gingerbread house. It is really cute!! They did an awesome job!! I'm so proud of my boys!!

White Family Christmas

Last Saturday, we had our family Christmas with my parents, my brother & his new wife. We had a good time! The boys especially loved having an early Christmas!!

Ryley's Birthday Cake

Ryley's actual birthday was the 28th (the day after Thanksgiving). Bethany made him a deer hunting cake for his birthday present. It was awesome!! Bethany makes the best cakes!!

Ryley Birthday Party

For Ryley's birthday this year we took a group of kids to the ASU museum to see the Grossology exhibit. The kids had a blast but honestly I was too busy trying to keep up with all the kids to even look at anything!! Anyway that was way too chaotic & probably won't happen again!! Afterwards we went back to our church family life center to build ice cream sundaes with the birthday boy.

Winnie the Pooh Live!!

I'm playing catch up again!! On Nov 7th my mom and I took the boys to see Winnie the Pooh Live! The boys had a great time!! We spent the night in Little Rock and shopped all day the next day!

Which was great fun for mom & me!!
