Heat Wave & A Cool Ride


It is going to feel like a heat wave has come if meteorologists aren't just teasing and we actually get a couple of 70 degree days!!! Can't wait! The wind on this "hill" is brutal at times...
This was one of Colby's Christmas presents, and it is super cool. He loves the Rip Rider with all the spinning. I couldn't resist the temptation of trying it out......it has the capability of making your head spin! :)











I should have taken a picture of AC on her tricycle while Colby is on Rip Rider. It is so funny to watch them....she pedals arounds, and Colby spins circles around her on the Rider!!! :)
BUT when she isn't doing that, she is taking the food from the dog's dish and chasing her down to put a pile in front of her. We wind up with quite a dog food mess! :)

Christmas Day


I can't really think of a Christmas when Colby was up bright and early to see his treasure on Christmas morning! I finally had to get the kids up around 8:00, so that I could have time to sit with them for a bit and still have time to get dressed and cook. When I went in his room and told him Santa had been and asked if he wanted to go see, he said, "not now...in a minute" :) He gets that sleeping honest!!
When I woke up Aubree, she didn't want to go in at first, because she thought Santa was still going to be in there! hee :)


Aubree got a new and improved kitchen! That little plastic one she had has seen better days. This one is wooden and has storage space for the tons of pots and plastic food that could fill a grocery store....yay Tia. I stepped on a piece of lettuce today :)
I'm sure the babies that she'll be carting around aren't nearly as loud (or have five hands) as the baby I have to push in my buggy!

Colby was excited but a little slow moving still :)

Aubree finally got the DS she has harped on for the last 6 months! It is the only thing she told people she wanted when they asked her about Christmas. Santa didn't disappoint that baby girl!


Stockings were always one of my favorite things to open when I was little. There were always such good things in there!!! Sometimes, it was nothing major, but there was such a variety of different things that made me happy :)
We had lunch with Al's daddy and step mom yesterday. I don't know if I was just more into food this year, but...all the food I ate was mmm, mmmm, good!!!

I tried to get a quick clip of the kids talking about some of their presents, but they were pretty much into their own thing and not paying me too much attention :)

Christmas Eve


We had a very large day on Christmas Eve. There was lunch at Mama's with Grandma/Granddaddy, and then dinner with Mrs. Libby that night. I've got to tell you, both meals were soooo good....I ate like I'd been without food for a week BOTH TIMES!


Colby got a new Webkinz, and appropriately....a chicken
Both DeLoach's got new DSi's that they've been waiting for....
Here is Aubree opening the best Christmas present ever!

She loves the fact that it has a pappy!!! Since AC can't have a pappy, she is insistent that baby doll wants one!
Oh see....it brought so much happiness (for me too). It came with all the "accessories" you see here...bottle, potty chair, lotion, bib. She is totally occupied for longer bits of time....aaahh, greatness! :)
Colby got a remote car


Cute picture....I like it!
NOW FOR MRS. LIBBY'S THAT NIGHT.....

it was crab stew....yum! *Smack*





BEAT THAT! She got a pink hotwheels. Right now, she can barely reach the pedals, but it won't be long....

Colby got this RipRider - it . is . cool . It spins around and around on the concrete when you turn corners....EXCITEMENT! :)

LATER STILL......
After baths and right before bedtime and Christmas stories, I let the kids in on a secret! Santa sent each of them an email specifically for them which included some of their pics, he called each of them by name when he was talking, and Santa mentions the one toy they want the most.... It was the best thing....awesome! I got the site from Dell and I'm so glad she sent it....
This one is Colby's...I cannot even tell you how mesmerized he was!!! Every time Santa asked him a question, he nodded his head and would keep looking at me. It was like he new it was just on the computer, but he was scared not to answer Santa!!!

There is Aubree listening to her message and looking at her pictures..Santa even knew she wanted a DS and said if she was good, she just might get it!!! :)

Time to let sugar plums dance in their heads...

Sands Christmas


Tonight, we had our Sands Christmas gathering at Mama's. Even though our family is small, it is always a loud time with all the little cousins running and playing! We had crab stew....scrumptious

The kids always get super excited about doing their book exchange. For Kylie, it is mentally exhausting and challenging, I've been told :)
Aubree got a fairy princess book, and Colby got a few Iron Man books. I realized I forgot to take their picture with their new books :)

Here is a snap of all the cousins :)

Aubree's Christmas Party


Friday afternoon, we had the Christmas party at Mrs. Wanna's. Everyone always looks forward to it, because she goes all out with cupcakes, juice/coke, and presents galore!!! She definitely spoils those children :) The kids draw names, so each child gets a present from a friend!!! Our time is quickly drawing to a close.....oh what a sad, sad day it will be! I don't even want to think about it!!


I can't believe this kid of mine will be 3 in less than a month!!
I could stare at this picture all day.....it is the cutest and sweetest thing!!!


AC was digging in to her present!!





Baylor had himself a WILD time..there was so much, he didn't know what to do first!!! He is going to be an excited kid Christmas morning!!!

I can't believe Christmas is less than a week away....my kids are counting the days!!!

Christmas Around the World


Last Sunday night, Ebenezer presented the children's program that the kids have worked on for a couple of months. It turned out so much better than I imagined.....there is nothing like a congregation full of people staring at you to make sure you get everything just right :)
Oh man, and Aubree, she was so good AND STILL during the entire program! She sat with David and didn't move a muscle the entire program.... she loves listening to the CD with those cantata Christmas songs on it, so I think she was amazed to listen to all the people singing the songs.


The kids were dressed to represent the different places "around the world". My boy and Dawson were dressed as a Brazilian children.





Thomas was Arab....
