Bama with a Banjo on my knee!

We done did it!  
We headed down South for Christmas in we got off the plane and headed to get our luggage we heard Christmas BANJO music!  Kennedy and I couldn't stop laughing!  
We had 27 people in my parents house!  What a hoot!  We spent our days eating, playing games, laughing, dancing, paintballing (12000 balls to be exact) taking family pictures, watching movies, eating some more and just enjoying one another.  My parents have had a rough year with my Dad's health problems, so it was just so nice to spend time with them and hang out all together!  

Thanks Mom and Pops for a great visit!  
Ya'll are some good folks - ya hear?!

Swish and Flick!

My cute Laurel class came over for a Harry Potter Party before they stood in line for a hundred years for the midnight showing of the New Harry Potter!  I just found these pictures on my camera and started laughing...they are a bunch of nuts and I love them!  We played a few games, made our own Harry Potter glasses and added a scar to our noggins!  I found some butterbeer and candy and we had a blast!  These girls make me smile!

We ate so much we felt like a stuffed turkey!

This dang bird took FOREVER to cook...blasted thing!  Let's just say we have been eating it for days!
These two were crazy hungry!
They started eating legos and rolled around the floor in protest!

While we waited for the food we played pin the hat on the turkey!  All fun and games until dad cheats!  Reagan followed suit and took a quick peak!

Rylee set the table and it was gorgeous!  She even had notes for all of us!  
My favorite was the piece of plastic spoon in Danny boys glass...
awe the memories!
Monkey bread anyone?  This stuff melts in your mouth and ALL over your hands!  Delicious!
We know him as dad, but you can call him Chef Danny boy!
Man I love my family!  Thanks for a great day guys!  
(can you believe I am the only one that likes black olives...I totally reverted to my childhood of sucking them off each finger and loading them up for more)

Fall Family Pics!

My friend Kristie is an Amazing Photographer!  I have taken our family picture for YEARS by myself with either a timer or begging Grandma to push the button after I have gotten it all set up.  I thought it was finally time to have someone take our pictures so I made the call!  We had soooo much fun and I just love how they turned out!  I know how hard it is to get that many people looking at the camera AND smiling!  She worked so well with all of our drama!
Thank you tons Kristie!

Little Stinker!

Sigh...this picture shows 
her true colors
Cute with a dash of, 
"you guys will never guess what I just did"

In the last month she has:
Squeezed an entire bottle chocolate syrup throughout the house (carpet cleaned)
Mascara explosion all over her room (carpet cleaned again)
Full diaper over the railing down below...not pretty! (crying mommy cleaned that up)
Toothpaste all over the mirror (what?  how did she get up there)
Broke a glass jar full of sand all over the bathtub (forget it - let's just move)
Drank out of Luke's shake - he has strep (figures)
Got into Kennedy's makeup (seriously Kennedy?)
Poured herself a cup of juice...some made it into the cup (made Dan clean that one up)
Colored with a sharpie all over my white sheets (sigh...still mad about that one)
Sugar dispenser I just filled up all over the carpet and couch (closed my eyes and pictured the beach)
Chapstick all over the glass sliding door (made her clean that one up)
Blue pen all over the house while I was gone 
(still waiting for Dan to take care of that - he says he likes it-hoser)
Shredded Rylee's homework (had to save Reagan on that one)
Pulled a knife from the dishwasher and started running (entire family freaked out and chased her down)

good thing she is cute!

Pumpkin Guts!

These two of course got right into it!  I may have gotten a seed in the eye that night...nobody is saying they did it.  
The investigation is still on!
These two...not happy!  They did it, but not happy about it.  
Luke said that many many times!
Not happy!

She was completely disgusted!  Wouldn't have anything to do with it!  She hung out with Grandpa instead watching a movie!

Why do Dad's take this so seriously?  
The end result!
Of course Kennedy has to go the extra mile and be super gross...sigh...
