Last night was out K-Group Christmas Party.(For the ones that do not know what K-Group is. It is like a Cell Group. Home Bible study.) We had such a good time and ate. The kids exchanged gifts. Trey got one of his fav things, a tool set. All he could say was "Bob! Bob! Bob!" Bob the Builder is on his mind 24/7.

Then it was time for the adult Christmas exchange and we were suppose to be doing "Dirty Santa", and you were suppose get things from your house and not buy anything. Will the first one went and the gift was opened and it was a GA Bulldog sippy cup. GA Bulldog paci, and GA Bulldog baby hat. Then it was the next ones turn and it was a baby outfit (which was a Braves outfit.). For the ones that do not know we are huge Braves Fans! It was number 3's turn and that person opened diapers I think. Well, I was # 4 and I got onsies and baby soap. You know I was not given that up. I will need them in 5 weeks. When each person would open a gift it would be something to do with a baby. This went on until #15 which was Truman's number. He picked a gift and it was diapers. Well, at that point they told us it was a Surprise Baby Shower. Truman and I was so surprised. We had no clue. You know that funny thing is, they gave me #4 thinking by then I would figure it out. No! I had no clue.

You are sitting here thinking what Truman and I brought. Well, it was not anything to do with a baby. We wrapped some Doggy Bedroom Slippers that were given to him by someone else and PartyLite Candles.

I truly feel like I have the BEST FRIENDS IN THE WORLD! I also felt like I had been Punked! LOL! No, not really. We were truly blessed last night and every thankful what they did for us. It just shows you that God put the best people in your lives!

Cookie Lady

I guess you can call me the cookie lady. I usually make candy this time of year, but deceided that I would bake cookies. One of my blog friends made the pinwheel cookies and I loved them. I deceided that I would make them for the kids I keep and all of the kids in my K-Group. Man, they are cute, but take a long time to make.

This is the wonderful Peppermint Pinwheels Cookies. If you would like to try baking them, the recipe comes from Paula Dean.

This the cookies in the basket I will take to K-Group.

After making the pinwheel cookies, I deceided to make sugar cookies so I could do some Cookie Icing. Man, what have I got myself into.

This is the sugar cookies before decorating them. I deceided on Christmas Trees.

The finish project. I know that are not the best, but when you are as fat and pregnant as me, it takes a lot to bend over. LOL!

Well, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

The Rain Comes

Well last night, I guess that God forgot that he said he would never flood us again. We went to church and when we got back home, it had already rain 5 inches in about 3 hours. It rained all night long.

It has rained so much here that have moved the Christmas Parade to Monday. I am really glad because last night with all the rain came some contractions. I guess Noah wanted to come out and see the rain, but it is too early for him to arrive. I got no sleep last night and there are 4 wild children at my house. Please pray for me today.

Fits-Where Do They Come From

This past weekend Trey started his wonderful winter cough, so we had to start breathing treatments. A couple of months ago he had a serve asthma attach and they changed the med he was on for breathing treatments. Before the med change they (breathing treatments) did not effect him to bad. Well, we are seeing a different child the last few days. I AM SO READY TO PULL MY HAIR OUT! I can not handle the fit throwing. I am really thinking about changing him back to the old med because he is not Trey on the med he is now.
An update on Noah Stephen. Oh if did not know that is what the new baby's name is going to be. I can not remember if I had told my blog friends or not. I only have 6 more weeks to go today. Jan 20th is not coming soon enough. It is going fast though. I remember with Trey I felt like I was pregnant for ever. Noah is weighing around 4lbs 2oz a week ago. Can you believe, he is weighing twice as much as his big brother did at birth. That is an answer pray too. I guess Trey will be "The Little Big Brother" and Noah will be "The Big Little Brother". That is mine and Truman's little joke.

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season.

Running Has Just Started!

I am sorry that I have not posted anything in a couple of weeks. I can tell that the holiday season is here. The Running has Started! The last two weeks have been crazy. I know that I have received my first blog award and I am going to do that too. Sorry Jennifer that it has taken me so long to respond to it.

Truman and I try to take Trey to see HOHO already this year and he was not having that. Santa was in the same room we were to take Christmas picture too, so we had to set for 20 min before he would let Christy take the pictures. Thankfully that she is a friend of mine and I keep her kids, because she was very patient with him. The pictures that we finally got with him in front of the Christmas Tress turned out cute. Thank you C. Barnett.

This year was the first year we had Thanksgiving at my house. It took me all week long to get ready for it. I had to clean and cook. Thankfully there were others that cooked as well. We had a great time with family and friends.

The day after Thanksgiving, Truman went on his first shopping trip with me. Needless to say, I do not think that he will be return again next year. He might though, we will have two to buy for then. We did get Trey his powerwheel fourwheeler that we wanted him to get at half price. That was at Toys-R-Us. While there, I got to see a great friend of mine that I have not seen in years. It was a reunion and a great way to start my Christmas Season.

Well, I guess this a start to my Running Around this Holiday Season. I hope that everyone else has a great Holiday Season. I am sure that will be posting some crazy stories from my shopping trips.
