Our Week: 2 Home Games!









Basketball update:  we finished the first round of our conference schedule tonight.  We are currently 8-3 in conference and 9-6 overall.  Now, we play all our conference opponents again before the tournament in March.  Things are going well considering all the set backs we faced at the end of the summer with this team.  The girls and I have been spoiled with 2 home games this week - and 2 more next week!  We have seen Josh's face much more than normal!

Getting into 2015

Me and the little one got to have 1 on 1 time while Josh took Langley to ballet.



The girls ready for the ball game!  We won!


This looks like an awkward family photo!

Wednesday was Awanas; the girls were so excited to go and Josh and I went out to eat while they were at church.




Thursday was another dance class.

Saturday, she watched daddy coach while she ate her snack.  We lost :(

It's already over - C'mas 2014

Christmas has come and gone.  Whether we like it or not, the tree and decorations are coming down and real life will resume.

We had a great holiday.  I only have these random pictures from my phone.  I guess I was just soaking it all in.





















Oh, and the verses I worked on for 2014:

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.  Psalm 19:14

Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name be the glory, beacuse of your love and faithfulness.  Psalm 115:1

The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up those who are bowed down.  Psalm 145:14

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped.  Psalm 28:7

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  2 Corinthians 9:6

Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified or discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9

May the Lord direct your heart to God's love and Christ's endurance.  2 Thessalonians 3:5

You were called to be free...but do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature...serve one another in love.  Galatians 5:13

Encourage each other daily, as long as it's called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin's deceptions.  Hebrews 3:13

The Lord is with my like a mighty warrior.  Jeremiah 20:11 a

Be on guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.  Luke 12:15

The Best Gifts










Santa 2014





I took them to the mall by myself to see Santa.  The mall people tried to tell me I couldn't take personal pictures because it's against policy.  The mall camera was broken and they were waiting for another one to get their from Memphis.  Are you kidding me?

So, here are the official santa photos.  Both girls talked to him and were so excited.

We do santa like any other character.  Santa is fun, like Mickey Mouse is fun.  We are not anti-santa.  But, I do tell them he's not real, just a fun character at Christmas. I don't expect anyone to agree or disagree with this choice.  I don't care what other families do and don't care what anyone else thinks of how we do this.  I hate seeing people get so heated on both sides of this stupid "mommy war."  It ruins everything about Christmas! They know Christmas is Jesus' birthday (first and foremost) and enjoy all the Christmas season has to offer both religious and secular and we love it!!
