The break has been SO much fun! We have done anything and everything the kids have wanted to do...takes me back to the good old days of having them home everyday! Man, I miss that life so much!
Tatum got a pedicure thing for Christmas, everyone has enjoyed peds!
I guess one of the kids snapped this pic of me at my desk...i look stressed or have a headache, or maybe I am in deep concentration. ha!
I challenged myself to 100 miles in December, done!
Tatum was invited over to Reese's for a tea party, so the boys and I got a special lunch together at Buffalo-hey I was a little outnumbered on the lunch request. :) Love these boys!
Tay at the tea party, she had lots of fun!
After the tea party and lunch I told the kids they had to rest a little before they went to their cousins for a sleepover, I think they were "resting" don't you, check out tatum's face! Ha ha! They were WAY too excited to go to their cousins house for a rest.
So off we went!
The next morning I didn't know what to do with myself waking up to a house all alone. Jon left early for work, and I couldn't sleep in, so I went for a run and came home and caught up on work. I rested after my run in front of the door, my usual spot to catch my breath, and loved this view....oh Christmas time, isn't it so lovely!
this little priss!
Our neighbors, whom we just love, came over and brought the kids these shirts and hats, how sweet!
Jon and Tatum wrapped all my gifts together, he sent me this pic after Christmas. Tatum has the wrapping stuff down this year!
Tatum called me out to the back porch one night and told me to send this pic to uncle matt, that she created art that he would love...and he did love it!
Thanks nanny for these fun kitchen towels, such a fun Christmas gift!
Tatum's doll, Oh how Anna Kenzie is such a part of this family!
Chick with my crew on a Saturday!
3 cheers for icecream!
I cannot tell you how many movies we watched over the break, just like this...2 of us on one couch and 2 of us on the other, we probably rented 5-7 movies and had the best time lounging and laughing!
Or in Jon's case, falling asleep sometimes...How funny is he cuddled up with that blanket, ha! :)
Jon made us a DELISH steak dinner and we were eating in the dining room when all of a sudden we had to take cover for a tornado, YES, a tornado in the middle of Decmeber. It was really scary and very sad because so many, just a mile from us lost their homes and everything they had. After going to look the next day at the damage it looked alot like our house when i was in 3rd grade. Such a crazy thing in the middle of winter. I have really tried for the kids to not pick up on my fear of storms, but that is now a lost cause. We sang Jesus loves me on repeat for an hour or longer. Thank the Lord for protecting us!
Here is a picture of some of the damage. So sad.
Like I said, movies for the WIN! I love that Tatum loves watching some of the same things I did when I was little.
Movies and games....that was our break anytime we were at home and we all loved it so much!
Sister girl was WORN out!
Tatum had so much fun at Jae Beth's birthday party at Sweet and Sassy!
While we were there, the boys had a Carino date!
Fun playing at the Horton's!
Cards with Eric and Kristin!
Friends over to play!
I came in the kitchen and Cade said "what mom I am hungry and these are all good choices" ha ha! Yes, Cade, 8 oranges! Love him!
Uno in bed!

Cerly's art party, so fun!
And I will leave you with a kiss! :)
