Farewell Christmas 2009

Well the presents are all unwrapped, the food has been eaten, and the boys headed back to their homes today. The house way is too quiet but it will soon come alive with the hum of the washer full of towels and sheets and the vacuum removing all of Duke and Annabelle's hair. It was a great Christmas but like all good things it too must come to an end. It is time to look forward to 2010. I hope this year brings many happy moments for each and everyone of us.

Fort Hill

Matt and I decided to drive through the VNMP today. We took turns quizing each other on the facts about the park. He remembered more that I did. We took a few pictures at Fort Hill.

Christmas 2009

Wow it's hard to believe all the planning, shopping, wrapping, baking, cooking and partying is all over. Christmas has come and gone. It was great. We had a party at our house. Then we had our traditional Christmas Eve fondue and snacks. Christmas Day we were joined by Dianne and Jeff and Meme. Everything was perfect. We all got great gifts and ate way too much good food.

Bunco Christmas Party

For our December Bunco we brought snacks and a gift for our ornament swap. Here are the pictures.Click on the pictures to see a larger view.

Christmas Eve

Here is our annual Christmas Eve Picture. Since the boys were little they always wanted to open just one present on Christmas Eve and it was always pj's. Now we all get to open a present and this year it was matching MSU pj pants and black shirts.

Action Sports International - St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend

Matt just told me if you go to this link you will see the pictures of him running in the marathon. I had checked right after the race but he wasn't listed. Guess it takes a while to sort through the thousands of racers. Great pictures.

See Matt Run

Matt ran his first half marathon this past weekend. (for dummies like me that is 13.1 miles) Wow he did great, he ran the 13.1 miles in 1 hour and 40 minutes and 35 seconds. That is running one mile in 7.35 minutes. We are so proud of him. Way to go. Check out the pictures below.
