Christmas Batman

T.H. shows off his Batman wings!

Icy Video Fun

I.C. and C.H. enjoy the fact that school was closed due to ice and that our neighbor has a 4 wheeler, some rope, and a sled!!

Snow and Ice FUN!

The kids were out of school on Dec. 16th and 17th due to snow and ice. I.C. and C.H. getting pulled on the ice behind our neighbor's four-wheeler.

T.H. stomping around on the ice covered grass.

C.H. looks extremely cold after almost an hour of non-stop play on the ice!

T-Man in Disguises

"Arrgh Matey!"

Look out Bruce Wayne! There's a new Batman in town.

Babies 1st Christmas

L.C. gets some help from Mam-maw in opening her Giggling Baby.

J.T. thinks she can "gum" open the gift, but T.H. shows her the fine technique of ripping.

Christmas Part 2

MiMi and Poppy joined us for the Christmas morning excitement! L.C. was napping so she missed out on the picture taking.

Mam-maw and Pap-paw were the first to arrive after Santa's deliveries had been opened!

A Leisurely Saturday Morning

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed...well...sitting on the bed.

T.H. gets a real kick out of being a big brother! He adores his sisters and it really shows in the way he plays with them : )

Cookies with Santa

Our family attended the annual Cookie Exchange party last Sunday afternoon and with the help of MiMi and Poppy we were able to get a good family pic by the tree.

We didn't have anyone that was afraid of talking to Santa this year. Hooray!!! J.T. really liked feeling Santa's beard.
T.H. and J.T. having some quiet time together. He is such a PROUD big brother and extremely sensitive to his sister's every need.

Daddy/Boys and Mommy/Girls

What a handsome group of men!

All the girls out having fun!

Fun Pics - Continued

C.H. was very brave on the jungle gym this day.

It was hard to get a pic of I.C. where he wasn't upside down.

J.T. snuggled up to Daddy for warmth! He's loving every minute of it.
