Hello Everyone

I know, I know. It has been a while. I have been super busy with all the Christmas stuff. Wish I could say work was super buys, but that is not the case. Continue to pray that the housing market turns around so. Here are a few pictures from Christmas.
The boys had a great time. They got everything in the world.
Jaden got a dirt bike. That was his big present. I have not downloaded all my pic's. I will post pictures tomorrow.
Oh yea, and I have to say GO TITANS ! Great win last week against the STEELERS. Sorry all you relatives who love them. Sorry we beat you ! Sorry that the road to the super bowl comes thru NASHVILLE.
Hope everyone had a Blessed Christmas and Happy New YEAR!!!

Christmas Home Tour 08'

Hello and welcome to our home for the Holiday's.
This is my first year doing this, and hope you enjoy it.
One of our traditions is putting the tree up on Thanksgiving, and My
Mom always helps. By the time we are done we are so tired.
Well, come on in.......

First off we can't forget the best NFL team now can we.
This is Jaden's part. He puts out all the houses. And let me tell you
dare I touch how his sets this up.

One of my lighted houses.

Our house this past Friday when we had a gorgeous SNOW

The kids stockings from Pottery Barn. Just simple. Hey , they are boys.

The Kids tree, boring but with all their little ornaments.

My breakfast table.

Our tree, 9ft. No it is not pre-lit. It is lite
by me and My mom. 1000 lites.

Our home.
Thanks for visiting.
Merry Christmas and may God Bless you in 2009!

We Got SNOW!!!!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. We got 3" here
in Middle Tennessee. I can not tell you how excited I was.
I am like a BIG kid when it snows.
Jaden was so excited. We had actually been
talking about snow a lot lately and then this.
He told me last night that he prayed it would snow and that it was snowing
because he prayer for it. Too cute :)
We played in it last night for about 2 hours. It was perfect snow.
The flakes were huge. It was right at 32 degrees outside which made
it nice wet snow.
Of course they got out of school. I am sure if any of you Northern people are
reading this you are saying "you got out of schoo" for that!
Oh yea, we get out for any little bit.
Enjoy the pictures.

This is our house last night when it was really coming down.

One of our shrubs... isn't that pretty?

Me and my sweet boy.
Also, keep Amanda in your prayers. Her house got hit by lightening on Monday night
in North Ga. They got out, but they have quite a mess to deal with.
Here is her new blog address.
This is not what you want to deal with, much less at the holiday time.
Hope you all have a great Weekend

Call us CrAzY

But yes, me and My sweet Son Jaden went to the Titans game yesterday
and the game time temp was 29. Wind chill was about 19.
It was freezing. I was ok until my feet got cold. Poor Jaden, he
would get up and watch the plays then get back
under the covers. We had on several layers of clothing.
We sat in the end zone so that was neat.
We have a busy week this week. Matt starts district play this
week for bowling . He is excited about that. I will try to get pictures, but
it is not easy and you cant use a flash in the bowling alley.
He bowls 3 days this week and on Wed starts Physical Therapy on
his elbow. I just pray he gets better. He is really
worried about it.
I got a busy week of lots of stuff with the Kido's...
Hope your week is great!

Jaden, can you see?
Man, were we ever cold. But we did get some snuggle time :)

Christmas time and wondering if......

Matthew will be here next year at Christmas or will he be coming home for Christmas?
As he still does not know where he will end up going to school, he has gotten accepted
to lots of good schools. Some close, some not so close. Of course I want to
see him go where he wants and really want to see him play baseball, but who
knows if his arm will allow it.
But as I put their stockings up, I realize this COULD be the last Christmas with
him at home. Ok, can you say meltdown.
This week was just full of odd and end things. Not much going on. And really not much in the Real Estate world. I am hoping that will change soon. Hey, what about those gas prices. I got gas today for $1.48. WOW. I love that.
Jaden and I are going to the TITANS game tomorrow. It is gonna be cold. So if you see a woman and a little kids waving in the end zone like crazy when we win, it will be me and Jaden. I am excited. I love going, but just hope I am ready for the cold weather.
Anyway.... here are a few pictures of some of our Christmas stuff.

This is when I had my meltdown..... oh gosh.
Now when this one goes to college, me and MY mom will be in
the tissue box.

We love our Titans
So is anyone done with Christmas shopping?

Weekend Wrap up

OK, that 5 days just flew. Poor Jaden did not want to get up this morning. But there is a bright side. Only 2 1/2 weeks til Christmas break. Yay.
Well we had some great family time, and some great food. We ate a small dinner with my Mom on Thursday. We watched the Titans game, oh yea can we say 11-1. And then after we ate it was put the tree up time.
My Mom thinks we have to hang every single ornament. We were so tired when we got done. The tree is 9 ft. and we did the lights and all that decorating that night. It is one of the most prettiest I have ever had. Check back on Dec 15th for the Christmas tour.
On Saturday I got up at 8 , put a 17lb turkey in the oven. The family came over to eat and visit.
We had a great time. The food was wonderful. But by the time it was over I was exhausted. Whew.
Here are a few pictures from the weekend.
Hope your holiday was great!
