~ Thanksgiving Day ~

It is still so hard to believe Thanksgiving has already passed. We went to Terral's parents house this year. It was such a wonderful time; a beautiful day as well.

The kids had a great time playing outside and in the leaves.

Aren't these turkeys cute? Debbie made one for each of us there!!

These kids have learned how to pose!

Here are all the kids with Uncle Robby and Aunt Lindsey!
I wish I would have taken a picture with Grandma and Grandpa with the kids too.

Here is our family.

Abby and Jasper. These two have become quite the pair. They play really well together.
I am so thankful we could get together and spend the holiday together. Time is really flying by and the "get togethers" are getting scarce. When we are all together, we have such a great time.

~ The Pumpkin Patch ~

This fall, Hudson's preschool class took a trip to the UMC pumpkin patch.

Of course it was on a day I had to work , but thankfully Terral was off that day. He was instructed, by me, to take pictures and give me a full report of how it went.

He did a great job too!! Hudson had a great time as you can see. I love the pictures of Hud and Harper. They are so sweet together!!

Hudson and his friend, Cash.

Storytime. Jasper even got in on some of the activities!

Such a fun time playing games!

Here is the class. I can't believe Hudson is in preschool. He really enjoys it and loves making new friends!

~ The 2011 Halloween Post ~

Yes, I realize it is December, and I am just now posting about Halloween, but it was too much fun to be left out!!

There were many memories made and fun costumes to see!

Terral's parents...aka Popeye and Olive Oil(sp?), hosted their second Halloween party. They know how to have fun too!! Don't they look awesome?!

This Halloween was so fun!! My boys had a great time and thought it was so "cool" their dad dressed up to go along with their theme. Terral had a great time too!

Josh and Kathy are always so creative with their costumes! Isn't this awesome?

Sweet Jacque...I think she said Lexi painted all of that!! That took a lot of patience!

Lexi was funny...dressing up as Octomom!!

Jennifer, the hippie, and sweet Lily. :)

Here are Lindsey and her little chickens! Simply precious!!

Gerald Don and his sweet wife, Jessi.

Love this, Sonny and Cher. They would probably kill me if they saw this picture!!

Love these two!!

I seriously think the Meekers could start our own Baldknobbers show! Is this not hilarious?!
Lonnie and Rhonda as travelers.

Pippy Longstockings and I. The party was a blast. Debbie really puts a lot into it. She gives prizes and comes up with creative games. The adults participated in a scavenger hunt around Greenwood...our team won! :)) There was a ton of food, activites for the kids, music and dancing, and lots of prizes!!

This is Lexi and I playing this had to put your bare feet in a bucket of noodles and get the marbles out with your toes. It was such a challenge!!

The kids love hitting the pinata. Each child got one turn and the last one busted it open!

This was on Halloween. So glad Hudson was able to see his Buddy!

All the grandkids and Terral. This was before hitting the road for hardcore trick-or-treating!

Lauren was able to see some of her friends on the "streets".
Hadley, Landry, and Lauren

All the goods. We ended up with way too much candy!!!
It was so much fun though.
The party was such a hit! It really gets you thinking about costumes for next year!

~ Update on Cotillion ~

This is Hadley and Lauren at the November Cotillion. Each child was to bring some canned goods and they were being donated to a food pantry. (not sure where?)
The 6th graders won!!!
Love the group pictures!! I always love seeing all the dresses!

Great group picture!!

This was from the October Cotillion ceremony. It was a masquerade ball. Lauren had a wonderful time and it was so fun seeing all the dresses and masks. I did not get any pictures of the boys, but some were very creative!!

Sara Beth, Lauren, and Landry

A big group of 6th grade girls with Mrs. Mary Ann.

~ Spirit Day ~

Hudson had spirit week at school for Bulldog homecoming and the one thing he BEGGED for was blue hair spray. I was so hesitant because I did not think it would wash out very well, but to my surprise it came right out!!

So, I snapped a couple of pictures before I dropped them off at school.
Hudson- 5 years old.

Sweet Lauren. I can not believe how grown up she is!!
6th grade!!!

~ Sweet Moments ~

I had to post about this great moment in the Meeker house. I am not sure how mornings are at your house, but it can be rough in our home. I have one who LOVES mornings, one who absolutely does NOT like them, and one you just never know what you are going to get.

So, when I stumbled upon warmed my heart. I love this!! A sweet sister helping her brother with one of my favorite things....teeth brushing!!

I am very thankful for each little moment I have with my children, but there are those times that make you smile as big as the sun.

~ Saturday Fun ~

The past several Saturdays have been filled with soccer and cheerleading.
It is sad to say, this is Lauren's last year of pitbull cheer. It really has gone by so fast!

We needed to get a shot of us in our matching shirts!
Sweet Dana and I.

Lindsey, Barrett, and Harper came to watch Lauren. Lauren loves it when she has family who come to watch her. I need to get a picture of her with Grandma and Grandpa. They are usually at every game.

This is her pose for many pictures I take of her.

We have the BEST cheer sponsor!! Kerri McDaniel is Lauren's coach and she is so wonderful! She really makes it fun for the girls!

Lauren has been on the same cheer team every year! I am so thankful she has been with such a great group of girls. They have all grown up together.

Here is Hudson. On Saturday mornings we have soccer. This little boy LOVES sports!! He really likes to run and gets his fair share of it with soccer.
This is Hudson with his friend Cash.

Jasper loves his big brother!

Love this picture! Great action shot!

It is so much fun watching the kids play and cheer.
They both have a great time and love having us watch them and cheer them on.
Its amazing how quickly life goes by. My prayer is that I will not take it for granted and enjoy every season of life.
