Here and Gone...

Dance Recital...Our two Princesses
Mia different from Spring Recital...she loved being on stage!Mandy...serious about her dancing Welcome to the Family ...Levi meets another part of his family and opens presents from grandparents and aunts to welcome him.Grandma made Levi a racecar blanket...Mia flirting with her Uncle J... Christmas Eve...time to open family presents...

One great big chaotic mess...What did you get,grandma?Santa came...

Nolie Sang....or is it Billy Ray? Happy,Happy Birthday Nolie!!

Look at all the smoke 12 candles made...

Nolan thought he could take a swim... Aunt T's pool was not heated at that time... the temp outside was 70 but the water was.....Ouch...Nolan went in up to his waist and decided...too too cold(it took his breath away)
Our Christmas Eve meal...and Garrett's first real"big" Whataburger(our OK and TX friends will know all about the best burgers least that's what dad and the boys think). Since we don't have a Whataburger, we have to have to make at least one visit on our trips.
"Makin' Moodsic"...Mia and Levi play a song together on the piano...Lunch in the city with friends... "Do you know how hard it is to get 12 kids to look at the camera all at the same time?"
Three pretty princesses....Mia likes to flirt with all the cute boys....
Christmas around our house seemed to sneak in like a mouse and roar out like a lion. I can hardly grasp the fact that it has been here and gone. I hope you enjoy the pictures of our various events and family Christmas celebrations this year. We are so blessed and have enjoyed sharing this season with family and friends. I pray that you all had a very blessed and Merry Christmas!

I loved all your pictures!

Mia's recital picture cracked me up and Mandy looks like a very graceful ballerina....I bet she is really good!

Where do I began...Kim, your family is over the top beautiful! The picture of Levi hugging the blanket was precious....I just want to give him a big squeeze hug. I bet he and Max would be BIG friends! I love your chaotic Christmas picture because it reminds me of our Christmas. Thanks for sharing!

Okay, I agree with dad and the boys about Whataburger...they are the BEST hamburgers EVER! It's so sister and I had that same discussion the other day :-)

Love you,
