My classroom...

A little late...we are 89 days into school after all but here's a glimpse into our classroom and Mrs. Short's sharp bunch!

Our newest nephew!

We were so excited we got to be in Ohio when Caleb Michael came into the world. He is absolutely precious! I love being an aunt to eight (almost 9 come January 14th)!

Christmas Time - Over the hills and through the snow!

I LOVE Christmas and this Christmas was so wonderful!! We were very blessed to be able to spend time with my family and Steve's family over the holidays! We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in Mississippi then fought the crowds at the airports to fly to Ohio where I got to experience a beautiful white Christmas!!

This was in Ohio before our 7 nieces and nephews went crazy...and the adults had a little fun too with our gift exchange. 18 people, 50 presents....prepare yourself!

Steve and his brothers got Ohio State shirts! :) They all put them on that night...wish we could have gotten a picture of them in their shirts.
Oh Danny!
We call this Christmas chaos!
Enjoying all the fun!

Christmas morning in Mississippi!

We loved our matching P.J's...thanks mom! :)
Cooking in the kitchen!
Enjoying the Christmas lights on the square...where we got engaged a year ago :)

Thanksgiving in Mississippi!

Now that we're married our traditions seem to be changing a little when it comes to the holidays but I'm learning to enjoy the differences and treasure the memories!
We normally spend Thanksgiving Day in Kosi with my dad's side of the family so since last year we were in Ohio, that was our plan. But a few changes of plans and mom still recovering from Gallbladder surgery we ended up at my grandparents for a couple of days. We had a DELICIOUS dinner and of course of fall family picture shoot! :)
