Toby's Huntin' Trip with KP

Toby went huntin' in Wheeler with his assistant principal Kirkpatrick (KP) on the last day of 2007. KP got his 2nd turkey and Toby's first 10 point off the lease in Wheeler. They were both excited about their hunt and they even made a humorous video to document the occasion. (I am posting this to make my husband happy....sorry for the gross pictures ... haha)

Merry Christmas

We want to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS. We are here in Taos, NM with my family. My parents, grandma, both brothers and the entire Tucker gang from Childress. We could not have asked for better weather or better conditions. The mountains were not very full. They are supposed to be full tomorrow. Santa found the kids and brought them everything and more ....HA HA....

He walked

We luckily got to go to Lubbock yesterday to see my youngest brother walk the stage and receive his degree from Texas Tech. He actually has to do one more class, but that shouldn't be a problem. We also got to all go eat afterwards at Cattle Baron. IT WAS SO GOOD. We also went to go finally pick up Grandma's present yesterday. We got one of those digital picture frames. Man,....was Lubbock crazy. I have never seen so many people in my life. Toby wouldn't let me do any other shopping...he couldn't handle it. I am still lacking Toby's parents present and Toby has to get something to take to his parents house. We play Chinese Christmas there. I also really have to go some GOOD gloves and boots for the kids, so they won't be COLD playing out in the snow.

SNOW...SNOW...about the snow....I thought my kids were going to blow a gasket when they saw the snow yesterday. They were so excited...Nothing better than making those little ones excited and happy....I can't wait until Christmas is going to be so fun...

We took the kids to the movies the first time in Childress

Toby and I couldn't believe that we have lived here over a year and haven't taken the kids to the movie theatre here in Childress. We took the kids to go see Alvin and the Chipmucks. It was really cute. Caden every once in a while got bored...but the most of the time....they watched the movie. It really brought back memories of my childhood. I remember dancing and singing to the Chipmucks when I was a little girl. I do recommend watching it...either the theatre or when it comes out on DVD...
STAY SAFE and those roads....

The countdown to graduation

My little brother is SUPPOSED to graduate from Tech this weekend. We are still waiting on 2 class grades. The reason that this is such a great accomplishment....he owns 2 of his own businesses and went back to school this semester. I know that it was been really stressful, but I just hope that he gets his degree so he won't feel that those 4 years are a waste. I am proud of him though. He is very succesful already and he is only 23. Let's just say...I always told my mom that he was going to be the millionaire in the family...and I guess I am always right...haha.... Proud of you bro....big sis steph

Lots of cute pictures.....look at the favorite links for the addresss....

I love the holidays... it is all about God, Family, and Friends...

What The Holidays Mean to You

For you, the holidays are about emotional connections and bonds. You are happiest being around those you love.

You celebrate the holidays in an over the top style. If something is cute, you'll buy it. People end up with a lot of gifts from you - and your house is like a holiday wonderland, full of decorations.

During the holidays, you feel magical. You love all of the decorations and how happy people are. You like to sit back and take it all in.

You think the holidays should be comforting and relaxing. You don't like the holiday rush... you just like the simple pleasure of the holidays.

Your best holiday memories are warm and intimate. You remember special moments more than gifts or parties.

You Are a Gingerbread House

A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.
You've Changed 48% in 10 Years

You've done a good job changing with the times, but deep down, you're still the same person.
You're clothes, job, and friends may have changed some - but it hasn't changed you.

Santa exchange

Yesterday my mom, the kids and I met in Memphis for the Santa exchange. We are not going to be here for the holidays we are going skiing with my mom and dad and brothers. So my mom and dad bought Caden a train we are having Santa this weekend. Kaitlyn was so scared that Santa wasn't going to know where we are going to be for we decided that we would have some of the big things this we wouldn't have to carry it with us to Taos.

About Memphis...if you have kids or need a place for relatives to go and play....Memphis has the neatest playground. That is where we took the kids so they wouldn't notice the Santa exchange....I gave my mom the other Santa gifts so that she could pack them early so that the kids don't see them and I got the train set so Toby and I can start putting it together. It looks like it is going to take some time. We are supposed to start tonight when they are in bed...I don't see it....
Mom and Dad are coming here on Sunday for Brunch and Santa......I will keep you posted on the teamwork it is going to take to put this together....and if Santa finds us where ever we end up....
