Tonight we enjoyed a Friday night together and made Brownies. Daddy surprised us with ice cream when he came home so it was only appropriate we surprise him with Brownies. YUMMY!

Precious Moments

Adam and Hunter sharing the couch while watching football.
Hunter's first apple and peanut butter moment with mama. YUMMY!

As March quickly approaches, we are cherishing every moment we have together. Therefore, I have slipped on blogging as frequently. Adam is leaving March 15th. I know that both he and I are dreading that day, but know that we will make it through whatever comes our way.

School is a little less stressful due to some small changes, but all in all I still feel like I work in an office not a classroom. I love teaching, but love being a wife and mother even more. My heart is torn everyday when I leave for work and pumping with excitement as a I return home.

Hunter is growing everyday and learning so much so quickly. He is currently working on his auditioning pieces for the next American Idol or America's Got Talent. The pieces he has the strongest endings are "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", "The Wheels on the Bus", and "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands". It is so funny to hear him singing at the top of his lungs in the back seat of the car. We are working on counting to 15 and the letters B and H.

Adam took the day off yesterday. This doesn't happen that often. We went to breakfast. Then church, which we are both going to miss Summit. Adam then attempted the mall. I needed to pick up a few items. Hunter thinks the word shopping means going up and down the escalator. It was quite humorous to see them going up and down the escalator while I did my Clinique pick up. "Mo shopping, Daddy!" is what Hunter said every time they would get off the escalator. I knew Adam was going to be a good dad, but never knew he was going to be this great. I have fallen in love all over again!

New Years Day

Hunter's new truck!
Making a sand castle.

Chasing birds!

We headed out to the beach that afternoon. It was the perfect beach day. The water was calm, the weather was perfect, and Hunter had a blast. Santa brought him a dump truck that he was able to try out at the beach. What a way to start out the new year!

New Year's Eve

Having fun on the beach at night!

Jayme and I posing for a picture and Kevin trying to get Hunter to do bunny ears on me.

Having this be our last New Year's in Naples, we decided to join up with our friends, Jayme and Kevin to watch the fireworks on the beach. I don't know what I enjoyed more the champagne, friends, the reflection of the moon on the water, the sound of the calming waves, the fireworks, or watching Hunter have fun with his glow sticks that Jayme brought (she brought them so that we could keep up with Hunter on the dark beach). It was perfect!

Catching Up!

A new tradition - Hunter and Colin in matching PJ's on Christmas Eve.

The family!

Christmas has flown by. I have been so busy that I haven't had time to sit down and blog. Today is the last day of freedom before going back to the "office". We have had a wonderful time.

Brief summary...

Saturday, Dec. 20th. Left on a flight out of Ft. Myers at 7am. Had dinner and caught up with Lisa and Jeana from college.

Sunday, Dec. 21st - attended City Road UMC with the family, had lunch and Christmas with the Pearsall family. Then that evening Adam joined us for Christmas with Nannie, Papa, Sara, Chad Colin, Martha, and Donnie.

Monday, Dec. 22nd - Had Christmas with Annmother's side of the family.

Tuesday, Dec. 23rd - Spent the day with Adam ALONE! Shopping and went to see 4 Christmases. Hunter came down with a fever that he had been fighting for a few days.

Wednesday, Dec. 24th - Christmas Eve - spent the day taking it easy and letting Hunter rest and recover, which he did. Went Aunt Linda and Uncle Dave's house for the Morris Christmas.

Thursday, Dec. 25th - Christmas Day - Opened stockings with Nannie, Papa, Sara, Colin, Martha, and Donnie. Loaded the 4 Runner so that Adam could take off that afternoon and headed up to Ashland City for Christmas with the Boyd's.

Friday, Dec. 26th - Spent most of the day resting and enjoying family. Went out that night with Kelly and Virginia. Enjoyed catching up with them.

Saturday, Dec. 27th - Took Hunter up to the Boyd's to spend the day and night. Took mom out to see Marley and Me. LOVED IT!!! That night I just sat and enjoyed sitting because it doesn't happen often.

Sunday, Dec. 28th - Tuesday, Dec. 30th - Flew by. I'm not sure what we did those days, but it didn't involve a whole lot.

So...the summary is...busy, but enjoyed the family and friends. I'm looking forward to seeing them more frequently. NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DRAB, COLD WEATHER THOUGH. ;)
