Happy Birthday Reese's been a while!

Well, I am back teaching full time which explains it!  I am loving it-6th grade is great!  Today we celebrated Reese's 4th birthday with a painting party.  SO much fun!  Becky guided the 9 girls in painting a picture.    We painted, ate cupcakes, and sang to Reese's new Hannah Montana CD.

State Runner Up

We have spent the past 2 days in Montgomery watching baseball. Our Baseball team once again played in the 3A Championship this year. This year they came up short in the best 2 out of 3 play. Tough day for the Mustangs.

This year our school has had 3 teams (Boys & Girls Basketball, Baseball) make it to the 3A championship game...pretty unbelievable when you look at the big picture. Not to mention Football, Volleyball, Softball, and Golf made it deep into playoffs. Very proud of our school and each kid that worked so hard to help carry their team this far.

Drew and Reese enjoyed hanging out with the kids at the games and especially loved staying in the hotel and swimming!

Fun Run

Friday, we had our annual school fundraiser-the Fun Run. It's a great fundraiser-no random food or wrapping paper to buy. You just get pledges per lap that your child runs. The kids LOVE it....they ran outside and had great music to get them pumped up.

Drew LOVED it-he was a running machine. Reese on the other hand....not so much a fan. I think all the people and loud music was overload for her-her teacher, Andy, and I had to run with her the whole time. Too funny-great memories! won't upload from my laptop-I'll add them later

Go Big Blue!

Spring Break started off with an incredible weekend of SEC basketball. Andy had some tickets to the tournament so Andy, Drew, Andy's parents, and I went to the games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This was Drew's 1st time to go to watch Kentucky play. Sunday's

championship game topped off the weekend-big win for the Wildcats! While we were at the games, Reese got to spend the weekend with Uncle CoCo, Aunt Amanda, and Allie-she loved it and wanted to stay longer.

State Basketball Finals

Pictures: Andy coaching, several of the kids cheering, 4 cousins on the way to the game
Well, the story unfolded....Both the Girls & Guys team made it to the State Finals. The girls lost a heartbreaker by 3 points. The guys ran into an incredible team and lost too. But, the fact that both teams made it this far is amazing. So proud of both teams, especially Andy for leading them.
We stayed at the hotel with the team for 4 days. It was like Disney for my kids! They loved being around the guys and swimming in the indoor pool everyday. Drew got to ride the bus and go to practice with the team-what a special Dad/son time for them. Also, Our Aunt Amy and 2 cousins got to come for the Finals. They had a blast together!
Now on to Spring sports....

Almost 10 years later

Wow....can you believe it's been 10 years since we graduated from Lipscomb?! We've multiplied! Last week a few friends from Lipscomb were able to get together in Nashville. It was a first to meet some of each other 's newest little ones. The house was crazy with 9 little ones, all under the age of 6 but we had a blast catching up. I'm already looking forward to the next time I see you all!

A few recent pictures

Drew playing basketball. He's dribbling the ball-my camera is not the best for action shots. Drew absolutely LOVES playing. They lost the first game in their tournament-he was not a happy camper. One more tournament this weekend then on to t-ball.
Oh the rainy days-Reese loves her rain boots!

Merry Christmas

Christmas morning

An attempt at a picture of the 3 cousins in AR.

Reese & I got Andy and Drew matching Steelers shirts-Andy's longtime NFL team and Drew's a fan now too. (even if they don't make the playoffs...)

Rock Band party.... 7 cousins
Merry Chirstmas and Happy New Year! Celebrating Christmas has been a 2 week process. The kids and I started with a trip to Arkansas (we missed Andy-he had games...) then we were home for Christmas morning, then went to Tennessee to wrap up the Christmas festivities. What a wonderful time to be with family and celebrate the birth of Jesus.

The highlight for Drew was his new scooter and his Julio Jones jersey (he is an avid AL fan now-he loves sports) and for Reese her Dora bike and baby. It's been a fun 2 weeks of playing, going to bed late, traveling, watching football and basketball.....back to reality this week!
