Ice Skating!

My sister took the kids and Savannah and Tatum to Dallas today for ice skating and Cosmic Jump. Kresee's first time and she thought she was an excellent skater. Haha. Leslie did say she did very well.

I don't know where Kohen is; probably off playing something. They really enjoyed Cosmic Jump. I'm thankful for a wonderful aunt and Grammie who take them all kinds of fun places. My kids love spending time with both of them!

Christmas Day (#5 & #6)

I love Christmas morning. It's just the 4 of us. We get to hang out all morning long enjoying each other before rushing off somewhere. It's my favorite time. Just us and the dogs:)
Santa brought Kresee a vanity/stool and a music box.
 Santa brought Kohen a new green BMX bike and a Rugby ball. He was pretty pumped!
 Red snoozing during his morning nap
 Daddy getting his coffee cup and mouse pad like every year:)
 I was very surprised to find that Kerry spent hours in the middle of the night while I was asleep handwashing and detailing my car in the cold garage. He wanted my 'Christmas present' to be all sparkly and clean. He is super thoughtful.
 I guess I didn't take many pictures at all:( We went to Nana's house for lunch. We did a gift card exchange which was fun. Ended up with Target, Starbucks, Applebees and Cotton Patch! We did a lotto game and Kresee was the the big winner. She won $15 and I won $3. We were the only winners out of everyone. She was pretty excited to get Frozen Dresses--both Elsa and Anna.
Christmas was a difficult one for sure but we love spending time with the family. It means that much more when someone we love isn't around anymore. This was a 1st experience for both Kerry and I. I know our hearts will continue to hurt less but it's still very painful and hard. We miss my Papa and his Meme so very much. And it was tough not having Hunter around either. I'm praying for a much better 2014 for all of us.

Christmas #3 and #4

Christmas Eve morning is always over at the Maroney's with Maw and Papa and the cousins. Here they all are.
 The girls

 Christmas Eve lunch or dinner is at Meme and Papa's house every year. It was super hard going over there knowing Meme was not going to be there.
 But we weren't going to disappoint her. Her favorite thing was putting candles in cake or cupcakes and letting the kids sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
 The 3 girls sang every one some Christmas songs. I videoed the boys acting out the 12 Days of Christmas. It was pretty comical and they were all very entertaining.

Christmas #2

We had Christmas #2 tonight with Grammie and TT....We enjoy going out to eat and then coming back to the house to open presents.

 Kohen got some new PS3 games, a science kit that he was wanting, some clothes and drawing supplies.
 Kresee got Infinity so she can play on the PS3 with Kohen, some clothes and boots, Brave doll with the bow and arrow set she has been wanting, plenty of makeup and The Little Mermaid movie.
 He was pretty excited to open up the science kit to do an experiment:)

 Red enjoying his 1st Christmas season with us this year:)
 Bow and Arrow...I think Kohen likes it as much as she does!

Christmases begin....

We had Christmas #1 with Grandpa Randy and Sallye tonight. We always go eat dinner and then come back to our house to open presents.

SLP Christmas Play

Today was Kresee's school Christmas play. Every year the kids get to reenact the birth of baby Jesus. They love performing this for all the moms and dads...Kresee was Mary again this year and she was a pro:)

 Brooks is her sweet friend. He got to be the inn keeper; what Kohen always was.
 Kresee from December 2012 when she was Mary with Gram as Joseph. It's amazing how much she has grown!
 Us with our sweet girl last year.
Afterwards they always have a little party. She was styling in her cute little Christmas outfit.
I love that Mrs. Erica and Mrs. Janet got to teach Kohen in 4K and now here they both are with Kresee. We just love them to pieces!
