A post by Alli

Meagan and Mamaw had a birthday party this weekend. We had cake. Mamaw's cake was a banana cake. Meagan's cake was a butterfly and flower cake. We had fun playing kick ball and other games at Meagan's birthday party. We played basketball at Mamaw's birthday party.

We are finished with Wednesday school until January. On Wedensday we are going to story hour and Mamaw said we could decorate her Christmas tree.

This morning when I got out of the shower, I went into the kitchen and found Audrey sitting on the floor scooping up handfuls of cheerios and putting them BACK in the box. Makes me wonder how many times she has done that before.

Just now I was doing a reading lesson with Audrey and I told her she did a very good job reading today. She looked up at me, smiled and said, "I'm a genious." I don't know what I am going to do with her. :)

Are you happy now?

After receiving some flack over our lack of posting, I thought I would make a new post. I will try to do better at keeping this blog up. I will mostly post pictures because I usually don't have a whole lot to say. Adam is better at all the writing. I have been working on Christmas bows lately. I like how this one turned out.

New post ~ finally!

It is winter, and basketball season is in full bloom. Ashlie prefers baseball, but I am definitely more partial to the hardwood court. Michael, Jacob, and Allison each play on a different team, and they've won more games than they have lost...which is certainly preferable to the other option. Each of the three is one of the best defensive players on their team. I'm really not sure why, as their father's version of defense is generally to wave hello to the offensive player as he blows by me for an easy score. Perhaps it has something to do with meal-time, and the skills they have honed keeping each other from grabbing that last tansy chicken nugget or piece of apple pie. Whatever the reason, it works well.
Michael is the point guard for his team, and surprisingly has learned how to pass quite well at an early age. Once again, he didn't get that from me. I haven't yet learned how to make a pass at his mother that accomplishes anything...
