A month ago the girls were invited to a birthday party at the local bowling ally. Molly was having a hard time and it did not want to bowl. After sometime of coaching and talking, we talked to her in to participating and she wanted to bowl. She went down, got a ball, and than dropped it on her foot. Her big toe to be exact.
She cried and cried-and she should have it still hurts to look at a month later.

Christina made Christmas dinner today and it was the best. I have attached a picture to show you.
1. You will notice the fine china we ate on. We have had it for 12 years
2. Coke a Cola-Love it nothing else needs to said
3. The ham was from the honey baked ham store in town. It took us 45 minutes of waiting to get it-so worth it.
4. Corn was from old recipe from way back in olden times. If you would like it than just look on the back of Green Giant Corn package
5. Mashed potatoes are from Heather's Mom Nancy-best ever made. Ms. Nancy-we love them sooooo much.
6. Rolls-just buy the Kroger brand still as good as ever
Quick easy no stress best Christmas meal ever.

Over the last three days we had friends from Indianapolis over at out house in Delaware. These are a couple of pic from dinner tonight. It has been great having them here.
Facts from weekend:
1. a bag of 96 pizza rolls does not stand a chance of surviving into left over stage
2. All kids in one room-no sleep needed
3. The friendly game of phase ten between the adults oddly turns very competitive.
4. why does every conversation eventually have the words boogers and fart in it.
5. Seven kids running up the stairs at one time feels like the house is going to shake off the foundation
All in all-loved every minute and so glad them came.

Today we went to a local nursery to see Santa. We love going to this place because there are very few people there and the girls get to spend as much time with Santa as they would like. Also they give out free popcorn and you know we love to get free popcorn! Each year The Grinch is wondering around also. Last year both girls wanted nothing to do with him but this year Cora was loving him. Molly not so much. I think that it must be so much fun to be the Grinch for the day because he gets to walk around with a bad attitude and know one even questions it. Really, he was funny and even though Molly did not want to have her picture made with him she liked him.

Today we getting ready to go to church and it came time to put on coats and shoes. I do not know about other parents but for Chris and I this can take a long time accomplish or so it seems. Today our middle girl, Molly, was told to go get her boots. She disappeared and came back with no boots. Once again, Molly go get your boots. She looked at us with a look of accomplishment. Molly go get your boots! To Molly's credit she held up Boots. Boots from Dora the Explore and told us I got my Boots.
Well she did what we asked. Next time, go get the boots you wear on your feet.

Today we went and got our first ultrasound done. I am so happy I have cried several times
today. I have seen the spine, arms, legs, face, and heart which is beating at 167 a minute (my favorite part) . Most
importantly I have seen God craftmanship. This is the third time for our family to welcome
someone into our family and yet emotions are just as strong today as it was the first time.
We have all experiance loss of friends and family but this-this-miracle-is a planned event
by God which makes me want to be closer to God. I know we see him everyday....no
we don't. We are busy. This makes me not be busy, this makes me stop. This gives me a desire to be closer to Jesus becouse this is a life God knows alreay-has talked with-seen-This is, yes a wonderfully made MIRACLE.
Thank you Chris for letting me hi jack the blog.
What is your opinion? Are going to meet
Granville John McLain or Lindsey Jane McLain

A little while ago Cora started asking about getting her ears pierced. I told her that she could do it but I wanted her to think about it a little while longer. After a few weeks of her continuing to talk about it I knew that she was ready. She is so excited to have earrings!

Ok so I know that the video is sideways and not the best quality but I just had to put her poem on here. All of the kids were asked to write a poem about the beach and her's was chosen to be read at the concert. She said she was nervous but I think it is great.

Hoopes. I do not think there could ever be a better teacher for my girl. She is just what she needs and I am so thankful for that. Cora loves her so much!

this would be the thing that did it. If you are from Georgia then you are not shocked by the spectacle that took place in the middle of the store. You see 11 1/2 years ago Michael and I moved away from GA and we have had to do without all things Mayfield. My mom always stocks the house with some Mayfield Chocolate Milk when we come to town because of the joy that she knows it brings to us. So to see Mayfield Ice cream here in Ohio almost brought tears to my eyes! We celebrated last night by eating almost the entire container. We can only hope the milk will be coming to town next!
