Dennie Kids and Tara’s Birthday: January 2, 2011

Highlights from today: (click here for pictures)

  • Since church wasn’t until 11 this morning, everyone had time to sit at the table and eat breakfast.  Campbell took a quick shower and then Graham had one.  The whole time Graham was in the shower, he was crying and squealing but as soon as Dad turned off the water he said “that was fun”
  • At church, the boys and Campbell went to class while Reagan went to big church with us.  She spotted Beebee and Papaw and went over to say hi and show them her new shoes. 
  • Church went long and then it took a while to get the kids and leave the parking lot so when we made it to Grannymom’s house everyone was starving.  Campbell practically ate a whole can of beans and when Mom was serving Anderson more rice, he said “I can just eat out of the bowl”-he was talking about the whole serving bowl.
  • After lunch, we celebrated Tara’s birthday with delicious pie and presents-what could be better.  She opened up cute bowls, a Southern Living cookbook, under shelf baskets and 2 boxes.  It was a great start to her month long birthday celebration.
  • The kids played for a while and then it was time for naps back at home.  Everyone but Reagan and Anderson took a nap (even Mom and Dad).  Reagan and Anderson played for awhile and then watched a few movies.  When everyone woke up, Mom and Dad spent the evening cleaning, straightening and organizing.  The kids got out all of the toys in the den (yes, all of them) and arranged them and said they were having a “hoe-down.” 
  • We had to put the gate at the bottom of the stairs because Campbell can now climb up the steps-she has only made it to the second step so far but since she is pretty strong willed it was time for the gate.
