Hustle and Bustle

Merry Christmas to everyone! We've been so busy with all the hustle & bustle of the season, that I haven't had much time to add to the blog. All I can say's a-comin! We have ONE MORE family get-together at my Grandad's house in Hartselle this weekend and then I'll get some pics posted. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed making memories for the coming year.
I WILL share one funny story...
A few nights ago Jake found some of his presents in our closet. I know - bad hiding spot. Anyway, it was the beloved "Handy Manny" that he asked Santa for. He asked why Daddy had a Handy Manny in his closet and I said, "What?? There's no Handy Manny in Daddy's closet, now get outta here!" Well...upon seeing HIS Handy Manny amongst the things Santa brought on Christmas morning he said, "Look, Daddy! It's a Handy Manny just like YOUR Handy Manny!!" We've gotta get better at this I guess...

Christmas at Nannie and Papa's

Here are a few pics from our Christmas together with Mom & Dad and my brother (Wes) and sister's (Amy) families. We certainly enjoyed the RARE opportunity of us ALL being together!

Dermabond Shiner

Well, there's nothing like starting your day having your kid evaluated for stitches...then learning that your hubby might need them too!
Jake and I were at the gym and he rounded a corner and ran into a metal handrail w/his eye. Immediately, I was debating...ER or peds office? I took him to the dr. and they sealed it up w/some Dermabond. No biggie - he thinks it's cool. When I get him to stop long enough, I'll try to get a pic and post it. THEN Cory got home from hunting and is sporting a mondo cut on his forehead that he got from his gun. Oh my - will I survive life with boys?

St. Jude Race and Team Madelyn

Tomorrow lots of people will be participating in the St. Jude Run/Walk in downtown Memphis. Many of our friends are supporting "Team Madelyn," named for our friend Madelyn Beamon, who lost her 4 year long battle with Neuroblastoma and passed away at the age of 6 in February 2008. Our boys were friends with Maddie and the Beamons are some of our closest friends. Ben and I were supposed to participate as volunteers - cheering, passing out water, etc. but the stomach bug struck Ben, Cory, and me. We're better now, figuring it was only a 12 hour thing, but now I have no babysitter as I urged my mother NOT to come for fear that she might get it too. ANYWAY, we're sending our love to the Beamons that they will feel much love and support for them tomorrow from the Williams Family. Miss you ^Maddie^

Maddie will always be a HERO to us!

Wacky - WEIRD - Wednesday

Now, this is weird... I'm only missing ONE child and this house is amazingly quiet and clean! Jake spent the night with Cory's mother last night and is still hanging out over there. I should be enjoying it, but must admit I'm missing my Jakey. What to do?? Go shopping?? Take a nap?? Nah...just sittin' on the computer...story of my life!
