Christmas with the Boys!

On Saturday following Christmas, the boys all come up from Tallahassee. Nathan had been there since Christmas Eve. It was so good to see them all and get to spend some time just visiting. We had sandwiches for lunch when they arrived and then ate leftovers at the Holtons for dinner. As they continue to get older it seems like we have less and less time with all three of them together. Jordan stayed until New Years Eve so we had a great visit with him!

Walker Christmas

We had Christmas with my side of the family at our house on Christmas Eve. Mom and Dad made mexican food-not very tradition but we all loved it! Don, Jamie and the girls + Dirt-didn't get to come down this year. Mom and Dad went up to Tennessee by way of Trenton on the Sunday following Christmas so they did get to spend some time with them. We missed them all being here, but are looking forward to at least Laurie being here for a few days the middle of January!

Christmas Party at School

Drew's Dad fixing pancakes for breakfast before the party! Thanks, Troy!
Samantha was home from college and got up early to come to the party! Way to go, Sam!
FINALLY, Santa arrived bearing gifts!
Jess and Santa
School got out this year at noon, so we decided to have breakfast for our "party food". It turned out great! We had pancakes, bacon, muffins, juice, milk and coffee! After we ate, the kids got to play a few minutes and then...Santa arrived! Most of the kids were excited and it was really fun to watch them. After Santa headed back to the North Pole to finish Christmas jobs, everyone got to open their gifts. It was like Christmas morning and really fun!

A big thanks, as always but never enough, to Jessica's teachers-Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Melissa and Mrs. Charlotte!!!!!

I'm way behind, but we had a great holiday! We had an opportunity to celebrate with Mom, Dad, Karen, Ervin and their kids on Christmas Eve and with the Holtons on Christmas Day. It's nice to live close enough to get to celebrate with most all of the families every year! Don and his family didn't get down this year and Kerry and Becky didn't get to come either-WE MISSED ALL OF YOU!!!!

The Boys got to come on Saturday and Jordan got to stay and spend a few more days. He graduated from Faulkner this past semester and we are sooooo proud of him. He will be walking in graduation in May and hopefully he will have a job by then. He had an interview in Nashville in Dec and is suppose to hear something the middle of this month-say a special prayer!

Hopefully, in the next day or two I will get some pictures posted. I have been helping up at the office, so my time is limited since I am working just about every minute that Jess is in school. I even had to hire Samantha and Kristen over the holidays! I'm not a real good working Mom-hats off to all of you who do it so well!!!

The last few months of 2009 were kind of tough around the Holton home but we are all, including Kenny's sister, trying to get some sort of normal life back. Hoping that 2010 is a better year for us ALL! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
