Princess Addie's 4th Birthday!

The Royal Family, Princess Addie at her 4th birthday party, and I told you it would be worth the wait to see Prince Peter, the story-teller, secure MAN and a GREAT father to two adorable children who think their dad is the BEST! I would agree after the costume!

Grandchildren, Nieces and Nephews!

My brother and sister-in-law, Greg and Julie, were able to come with their adorable children, Blaise, Dalton and Maranda and spend a little time with us this weekend. We were so happy to see them, even though it was for a short visit. Today, Greg and Julie went to lunch with Lindsey (their oldest daughter) and Taylor Dorner, who she is engaged to and Taylor's parents, Dan and Lisa. Johnny and I took their kids to McDonald's for lunch and met up with Deanna, Katie and Carson. They had so much fun playing together. Notice the drool on Maranda's shirt....I believe that is why she is at the moment upstairs crying her little eyes out....teething, again! But she is such a very sweet child! We had a great time.
Tonight we went to Hollie and Pete's house for Addie's fourth birthday party! She actually was able to have it on the first planned date! That is pretty unusual for her. Usually, something happens to cause us to have to postpone it! It was a great party. I'll post pictures when I can. In the meanwhile, it will be worth the wait just to see pictures of how Pete was dressed! He is such a good Daddy! You'll see why!

Aunt Aunt, Uncle Uncle

This is a little odd, but my Mother's sister married my Daddy's brother so here is my Aunt Aunt Clara Mae and Uncle Uncle M.H. They were able to go on the Bible Cruise with us and it was good to see them and spend a little time catching-up on the family!

Okay, Okay, Here is a little update since the New Year!

The annual January Bible Cruise! Addie and Hollie were able to go with us. The weather was great and we actually had a very nice time.

Hopie slammed her finger in the door with some help from Addie and she had to go to the emergency room to have it xrayed. The very end of it was fractured but she is such a trooper in medical situations and did very well throughout the long wait and ordeal! I think she just wanted the attention from all the clergy! Have you ever had this many preachers visit you at one time?? If you did, you probably are not reading this now! You know what I mean, Vern?

One of Johnny's best friends, Donald Pope, came and spent a few days with us. It has been one year now since his precious Debbie died. We still all really miss her.

When we were on our way home from Gatlinburg, we stopped for lunch and were so happy to run into our wonderful friends, Russ and Mary Lee and their adorable children. It was especially good to see Mary, as she has been going through cancer treatments and we have been praying earnestly for her. She seems to be doing well.

Happy New Year celebration in Gatlinburg....Katie and Carson and our special friends, Greg and Stephanie Moss. (Greg and Steph finally got to go to Gatlinburg and share a room together!)
