Our Family

Wednesday, March 28, 2012


Yes. I said it 4 months! Gee I said last post I was going to do better but life happens... so we are just going to give you some "snipits" of Emma's past 4 months...starting with December

This year was our first visit from our Elf on the Shelf Ellie....boy was she a sneaky little something.

Emma and Kinsley at our annual Christmas Ornament/Exchange dinner at Aunt Sue's and Uncle Mikes's ..ALWAYS a good time with family.

Just doing a little coloring

Personally I don't think she could be any cuter!

Emma made a trip to Baby Land General, for her very first Cabbage Patch doll...Welcome to the family Libby Elaine.

We had breakfast with Santa with family at Grandma's work...and this is also a great shot of the gravel burn she has from her BIG wheel chair accident at school :(

Time to watch the Hephzibah Christmas Parade!

And now to Granny's for the Reindeer Games!

No Reindeer games would be complete with out pulling "Santa Poppa"  in the sleigh! Gotta love Granny's imagination.

Granny's imagination at work again, playing in their tent outside.

Ready for more family for Christmas Eve fun at our house.

And who needs neighbors and friends when you have a porch full of cousins to play with ...pretty lucky girl I would say.

And they ended their day with a cousin ride on the golf cart.

Christmas morning with a brand new kitchen from Santa means...

that the perfectly good little kitchen goes to Kinsley for another round of good use!

And then the LONG trek to Grandma and Grandpa's for more Christmas morning fun..

Love these two~

To round out the year we got a visit from some of my besties from school days...and their sweet kids!

This pic was too cute to leave out.

And as you can see not much puts a bigger smile on Emma's face then her big cuz JT

Emma ended out 2011 with one of her favs' Madelyn at the  Shipwrecked Chipmunk Movie and..

a get together with our house with our closest family and dearest friends

What a Blessed 2011 we had!!

Our 2012 got off to a rocky start, my Papa passed away right at the beginning of the year. Even though he lived a long, fruitful and wonderful life it does not making losing a member of your family any easier...the not so good news just seemed to keep coming in from there. BUT we are family who perseveres and believes in the power of prayer, we face our battles head on and move ahead. We miss our Papa dearly...Emma refers to him as her Strawberry buddy...but we know he has joined those of our family that have passed before and is looking down grinning at the hard time Emma is giving us with all her sassiness and bossyness every day.....

And here is a good shot of the "sassy" Emma got her hair cut at the begining of the year.

And her and Jeremy attended their first Daddy Daughter Date and Chik-Filet, minus the dressed up Cows...which was not such a hit with Emma... they had a really good time!

And I could not wait for them to get home to tell me all about it...Jeremy is a #1 Daddy in my book!

Grandma and her girls waiting on the Valentines Party to start...

And here are the Valentine Cuties!

Two of the sweetest friends a girl could ask for...Emma is one lucky girl!!

In March we took a long weekend family vacation to Tybee....

Emma loves the beach...such a beach babe.

Two peas in a pod...

Looking rough afer a long day at the beach and ready for bed

Building Castles in the sand...

We celebrated St Patricks Day at the beach.......

And there you have it a quick look at our past 4 this all updated just in time for us to head to Disney World for the week.... Our count down calendar is at 2 days!!

Blessed beyond measure....
