More snow, sledding, and snowmen

This is what we did all afternoon today...sled down the hills and then Thomas would always get a ride back up...notice the look on my face! I was pooped! Great way to work out!

This cracks me up!


Thomas had a blast today!



Love it!


Our first family snowman...don't judge! :-)


Thomas' snow angel


So cute!



Pulling his little sis!



This is hilarious! Thomas wanted to sled by himself...we had no idea he would go sooo fast! We did have someone down the hill to catch him, thank goodness! There is a lake at the bottom of the hill!

Lily sledding for the firs time...



Thomas and Lily got to play in snow for the second time in a month. So far we've gotten about 7 inches and it is still snowing. It seems to snow and then sleet or something like it and then snow again. The roads are really covered this time and compacted with ice and snow. Don't think we will be getting out as easily this time. Lily got out and played a little. She was so bundled up, she could barely move! She reminded me of the kid on "The Christmas Story!" She didn't really know what to think. I think she would have liked to play in it if she could have moved!

Lookout...she is officially on the move! I finally got it recorded tonight. She is trying to walk everywhere now. Not sure if I'm ready for this, but ready or not, here she comes...

More Christmas Pics...

Thomas...his first Christmas...December 2006

Lily...her first Christmas at home...December 2009
They both are sitting in an old wooden chair that my grandparents gave me when I was pregnant with Thomas. It came from an old school house where my dad grew up in Mississippi!

Sweet Lily...


She found the stairs...no worries, we have a gate up now!



So sneaky...don't let her cute looks fool you!


My sister Shelby with Thomas and Lily...

Tractor Riding...

Thomas riding his new tractor that Santa brought...just like Daddy's!

Daddy and Lily...all bundled up!


Giving Lily a ride...



Hold on...


Lily getting ready for her surgery to put tubes in her ears...



check out her little scrubs...they were HUGE on her...so cute!
This past Thursday Lily had her first surgery. She got tubes placed in both ears. She did wonderfully. We feel so blessed that this was her first surgery given her very tiny beginning but it was still a little nerve racking waiting for it to be over. Thanks for all your prayers for her! It was super fast!

Christmas pictures 2009

Christmas morning...we all waited patiently for Thomas to wake up before going downstairs, so I could get pictures of the two of them together, but about 7:45 I heard a noise, and the little stinker had quietly gone downstairs without telling us! Too funny!!!

Thomas pulling the melted chocolate out of his stocking after we had turned the fireplace on...whoops...notice who is totally checking it out!


Lily loving the simple little things from her stocking...


Swinging at the farm in Alabama...sooo cold!


Thomas riding the tractor with Uncle Johnny on his farm...he loved it!!
