December catch up continued

Sophie had her 5th Gotcha Day!! Wow, that was fast. She chose to go ice skating and I happened to have two for one coupons so we headed to Pelham.  After ice skating we went to Golden Corral. Well, that was my children's first time there. THEY loved it.  Trying to feed and fill up teenage boys is quite the challenge in this house of hollow legs. Well, my boys ate to their hearts content!!   It was also here that I discovered Jax does not like my cooking. He always eats a ton if we go to a chinese restaurant so I just assumed he loved Chinese food go figure. But NOOOO at Golden Corral all AMERICAN buffet the boy eats like he has been starved. 

Did I mention

the chocolate fountain?

Micah and EG were in our church Christmas play titled "Up in the Air About Something" super cute and they did a great job thanks to their great director Sis. Michelle.

 Then we had our Christmas with Boo and Cindy and that is always loads of fun! Eating food and playing games! They also were so sweet and took Jax and Sophie to the Springville Christmas parade, I am not sure who had more fun..the adults or the little ones!!

We headed over to my parents on Christmas eve and enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal and a lot of fun and fellowship. My niece Kristen was not able to attend this year and we really missed her. Please say a prayer for her, she needs physical healing and God knows exactly where she is!

And finally Christmas Day. It was a wonderfully relaxing, joyful, celebration day!  After Bert read us the Christmas story the kids opened their gifts one by one.  Bert cooked a outstanding breakfast and then we just vegged out the rest of the day. Bart and Laura came over that evening and we had our Christmas with them and the day after Christmas we drove to Dothan to have the Pierce Christmas.
