Happy New Year!

Here is our New Year's tradition photo with the Hemphill's. Each year there are more people in the photo. This year we have "Baby Hops" and "Baby Bump" added to the picture. January will be filled with great blessings for both our families once these little ones arrive on the scene.

We were able to spend New Year's with our great friends, the Hemphill's. This year we had the privelage of hosting them in our house for a few days. The past couple of years they had us over, so it was a blessing for us to be able to spoil them this time around. Nicholas and Christopher always have fun playing together and this time was no exception. We went to the mall and they rode the train and carousel and then after naps when the sun came out they were able to play outside. They played some basketball and played on the slide. Nicholas was even to slam dunk with a cast on his hand, very talented.

The boys were eating their snacks outside when Uncle Brandon starting snapping some more pictures. He asked Christopher if he was giving Nicholas a hug or wanted to say cheese and he ended up doing both. It was so cute. He leaned in closer and then we got the "see food" picture. Priceless.

And here is another picture of us all. We had such a wonderful time visiting and were sad to see them head back to Huntsville, but we know we will see them shortly. It is always nice to get together and we enjoyed having company in our new house. The boys played and played and were totally exhausted by the end of it. Hopefully they will sleep well tonight. Us parents also enjoyed the fellowship and some relaxation when the boys were sleeping. Good times had by all this New Year's.

I can NOT find the cast cover that we have - who knows where it got to in the move. When it surfaces, I may see if the church would keep it on had as these needs will arise again (hopefully not for you)

I am so sorry I may have gotten your hopes up.
