We’re in FL!

Well, we made it. FL definitely seems like a different world. Now we can really see why it is so tropical here. (Getting off the plane everyone was wearing short sleeve shirts and shorts!) Three years of seasonal weather will do that to you! It’s fun to visit FL, but SC is home. Yesterday we were able to catch up with family and have a big steak dinner. Today we went to Metro Life Church (Danny’s old church) and saw some of our friends! Tomorrow we head of to Disney to have an anniversary celebration. We are so excited. It has been a relaxing and fun vacation. We hope that all of you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Last Co-Op of the Year

Last Friday was the final co-op for this year. The kids did a great job. For science they made marshmellow towers and ate some too! For art the younger class decorated christmas trees and the older class made snowflakes. I took the snowflakes they made and put them up at our Ice Skating event. I can’t wait for classes to start again! Hopefully everyone was blessed by it. I know I had a great time.


Bentley’s first Christmas

Bentley is 10 months old and will be celebrating his first Christmas tomorrow night. A little early I know. He’s really excited about it…

We have been enjoying our Charlie Brown Christmas tree that Danny cut down at the end of the street. It has served it’s purpose very well and has grown on us. Bentley was very excited the first time he saw it. I got him up from his nap and when it saw it he said, “Ooowww,” with a big smile. He has even stuck his head through one of his presents!

I can’t wait for Bentley to see both sets of grandparents, friends and family. This will be our first Christmas back in FL since we have been married. It will be a great time, filled with many memories! We wish everyone a Merry Christmas! We hope that your holiday will be safe and that you will cherish the reason for this season!! Thank you Lord for sending your Son to save our lives!

Well, it will be interesting to see how Bentley handles opening presents. We’ll have pictures to share of that!!

3rd Anniversary!

Today is our third anniversary! I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. It has been a wonderful year, with some trying times, but wonderful all the same. We aren’t really doing anything today — a stroll downtown, but we are going to Disney on the 22nd to celebrate! Yay, Disney! I’m so thankful for the gift of marriage. I can’t wait to see what God has for us in coming year. I love you Danny! Happy Anniversary!

PS – Happy 3rd Anniversary to Aaron and Jennifer… tomorrow!

It’s been too long!

Whew! It’s been so long since I have had a chance to sit down and blog. And even still I really have to make this short. We have had so much going on recently.
Danny, Bentley and I went to TN for a week. That was interesting, and fun.
We had a great Thanksgiving with my parents, sister and uncle.
Last Friday we had our annual skating event for the church.
Plus, all of the hustle and bustle this time of year brings.

Here are some highlights of our TN trip in pictures:

Bentley’s First Trip to Toys R Us

Bentley and I checked out the Gaylord Opryland Hotel

Bentley and I also went to visit Franklin, TN and toured Carnton Plantation that was used as a Civil War Hospital… complete with blood stains! It was very interesting!

We went back to the Gaylord Opryland with Danny and saw all their wonderful Christmas lights.

Bentley all bundled up walking downtown Nashville. We went to the biggest free state museum ever!


I was tagged by Jessica. The object of the game is to go into your picture files & post the 5th picture in the 5th folder. This is a picture of some of the falls at Jones Gap from one of our many random hiking trips in the mountains.

Now I get to tag 5 friends: Erin P., Erin D., Ann M., Meghann R., and Jennifer W. Have fun!
