Christmas Day 2010

Santa definitely thought Savannah, Jack and Julia were a very good boy and girls this year. Each one of the kids got a trip to Breckenridge and a new scooter. Savannah got a new digital camera, Jack got a new Wii game and some new tennis shoes and Julia got a doll pram and a horse for her dolls. The kids were very excited with their prices from Santa. Mommy and Daddy got Savannah and Jack new jackets and some clothes. Julia got a new piggy bank, clothes and a necklace from Mommy and Daddy. Nana and Pop came over early in the morning to see what Santa brought the kids followed by Grandma and Granddaddy.

Around lunch, we headed over to Nana and Pop's house for Christmas with my family. The kids got more goodies from Nana and Pop and Rhonda and Tommy. Savannah got a new pair of boots from Nana and Pop and a new Vera Bradley lunchbox and perfume from the Bowens. Jack got a new Wii game from Nana and Pop and a Polo sweater from the Bowens. Julia got a beauty shop chair for her doll from Nana and Pop and a smocked outfit from the Bowens. We all got money from Nana and Pop as well.

Later in the afternoon, Mama Tommie and Benny and Belinda's family all came over to mom and dads. After a great traditional Christmas lunch of Dressing, Turkey, Ham and all the fixings to go along, the kids all opened more gifts from Benny and Belinda and Mama Tommie. Mama Tommie gave us all money. Benny and Belinda got the kids a bag full of goodies. Savannah got a new watch and a necklace. Julia got a piggy bank and a necklace. Jack got a piggy bank and stainless water bottle.
Christmas was great and the kids are very spoiled once again!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was a very busy day this year. We had to push somethings that have been planned for earlier into the week into Christmas Eve because we spent so much time at doctor's offices with Trey's kidney stones. Before you all ask, yes he still has the stones, but the medicine he is taking is keeping him comfortable. The doctors decided not to blast the stone until we get home from Breckenridge if he still has the stones.

Anyway we started the morning off with breakfast with our favorite teenager, Caroline Newman. Caroline is like a daughter that just doesn't live with us. Although Jack says she is his girlfriend. The kids exchanged gifts with Caroline. Jack got a new Nerf gun, Savannah got a new game and Julia got some makeup. We love Caroline and are so thankful God brought her into our lives.

After breakfast with Caroline, we headed home to pack up the gifts for Trey's parents and sister's family and headed to Amory. The kids had a great time opening gifts from Kelly and Grandma and Granddaddy. Savannah got some new clothes and a stocking of goodies; Jack got a new Wii game and a stocking of goodies; and Julia got the Disney Princesses Barbi Dolls and a stocking of goodies from Grandmama and Granddaddy. Trey got a new coffe maker, money and a stocking of goodies and I got a new pair of boots, money and a stocking of goodies. From Kelly we all got tshirts that show that the money to get the tshirt was donated to feed the hungry. From Kelly, Jack also got a Mitch Mooreland autographed baseball, Julia got a new dress and Savannah got something awesome that she can't remember at the time being. We had a great late lunch of shrimp bisque, crawfish bisque and red beans and rice. We ended the celebration at the Candlelight Christmas Eve Service at Kelly's and Chris's church. We ate dinner of left overs from lunch and headed home to prepare for Santa.

When we got home, Savannah and Jack got the cookies and Diet Pepsi (Santa gets tired of milk) and spread the reindeer food. Julia fell asleep on the way home from Amory and didn't wake up to get all the stuff ready for Santa. Savannah and Jack were then ready to go to sleep in hopes that Santa would stop at our house.

Last weekend we went to Meridian for Christmas with the Mikell family. We had a great time visiting with Trey's Grandmama, Betty, Ricky, Kimberly, Tim and Lyla. Matthew, Kelly and Addison did not make it down for Christmas this year. Savannah and Julia loved playing with Lyla. Julia thinks she is a big girl when Lyla is around.

Jingle Bell Road Race

Savannah and Jack ran in the Jingle Bell Race in Meridian last Saturday. I was so proud of them. They both finished in the top ten with Jack's time being 8:55 and Savannah's 9:16. They did a great job for their first race. Savannah would have finished a little sooner, but she wiped out somewhere on the course.

Christmas Dance Party

Thursday, December 16th the girls had their annual Christmas parties and performance at dance. The girls danced beautifully and had a wonderful time. Julia was super excited because she got to be part of the big girls dance again. Santa was also there to take the girl's Christmas wishes. Well Julia said, "Mrs. Christy's husband is one of Santa's helpers because he was dressed up like Santa."

Preschool Christmas Program

Julia's Christmas Program for school was last night. Julia was the most precious elf you have ever seen. She is such a little ham and loves being in the spotlight. She sang, did all the motions and said her part in the microphone so clearly. The only thing she was upset about was that someone else got to be Mary with her best friend Blake.
