Thursday Morning

Saturday night, Todd and I got to go on a long-ago planned date night. We were supposed to go with two other couples, Christy and Scott, and Kathleen and Scott, but Christy was sick so they didn't get to go. :( Here are Todd and I in the van on the way over to Scott and Kathleen's house. (Kylie is in the seat behind Todd because she was going to play with Morgan while we went out, and she thought we were nuts taking pictures at the stop light like a bunch of teenagers!)
Then, we had to take another picture with Scott and Kathleen, of course! Then, Morgan AND Kylie thought we were goofy!
We went to a comedy club, which was kind of like 'Whose Line is it Anyway?'. It was a lot of fun!

On Christmas Eve, we went over to Carolyn and Kelly's for supper.  It was yummy!  She made baked chicken and lots of yummy side dishes.  Here are Carolyn and Kelly looking at a photo book we made for Kelly's Christmas gift. It has pictures of Kelly at all of the activities she did with us in 2012. She really liked it, and I'm so glad!

Cookie gave Lindsey a pineapple.  Lindsey LOVES those things!!
Kylie got Taylor Swift lotion!  She was so excited!!
Natalie got her very own pumpkin pie! This is the girl who requests pumpkin pie for her June birthday, rather than cake!
Natalie, Kylie, and Lindsey
I caught Natalie and Lindsey taking pictures of themselves! Lindsey got there a little late because she had to work at Old Navy until 7.  Tyler had to work, too, so he didn't get to come.
Kelly got an I-Pad from her mom and here Kylie is helping her 'Face Time' Maralyn in Texas. (Face Time is a lot like Skype.)
On Christmas morning, Natalie got a Baylor sweatshirt. (Or, as they say down there, a 'jacket'.)
Tyler got some cash!
Here is Lindsey with her fuzzy socks and a stocking cap. Her gift will be here the week of January 8th.  It's a letterman jacket.  She is very excited!!  She already knew about it because she had to be fitted and decide where she wanted everything to go.  I'll post pics once she gets it. I always wanted a letterman jacket, so I was so excited for her to be able to get one!
Larissa got some cute clothes.
Kylie got a ticket to the Taylor Swift concert next year on August 2nd. When she called Morgan later, she found out that Morgan and her daddy have the seats right next to her! Imagine that!!

Rue loves her chew toy!
Tabitha and Tyler!  They had to leave at 11:45 because Tyler had to be at work at noon.  We were glad that we were able to at least spend a little time together!
Natalie and Stephen! They left before lunch because they had to head over to Stephen's mom's house.
Here are Kylie and Kelly playing games on Kelly's I-Pad after lunch on Christmas Day.
Our gang on Christmas morning.
 We had a nice Christmas.  I'm so glad we were all able to be together, even if for a short time!


  1. So glad you had a great Christmas. Love the photos of you all. xo

  2. Your kids have all grown up so much!!!! Love it! Larissa's hair is pretty dark! Love that Cookie's gifts were so original and so what they liked! And I LOVE that you took a pic at the stop light!!! LOL! Date nights are special, if they come so infrequently like ours do...
    Looks like it was a great Christmas!
