Life Lately

Everyone is back to normal around here. We are just trying to remember what it feels like to go to school and work and tennis practice.  A few photos of life that past few days......................

We went to our neighbor's house for New Year's Eve. It was a fun
night and we all stayed awake until midnight!

We went bowling and play acarade games with friends and Abuela.
We met with my parents in Athens and went to a boys' basketball game.
We played South Carolina and it was close game, but we lost.
I do love college basketball!!
It was Abuela's last night with us.

Rachel has her eyes checked out. She is in the slightest need of glasses,
so we plan to shop for glasses this week.
Because only in the South can you find chicken feet at the grocery store :)
The weatherman predicted a chance of snow and this is what we got.
We were disappointed, but maybe more it to come?
Rebecca and I went to check it all out.
Rebecca and her dolls.
I found this treasure on my table :).

And that is it for now!

Christmas Cheer 2016

Our Christmas was good. We had a full house this year with Perla visiting, plus my parents and Amy.
Raphael and his Mom went to see A Christmas Carol.
We went to see The Christmas Canteen. It is a show in a little theater in
Lawrenceville. I have heard about for years and this year we finally went.
It was really good and funny. And the kids liked it too!
Coookies for Santa
Christmas Eve church service.

We opened gifts that were to and from my parents.
Cookies for Santa, carrots for reindeer and cheese for Santa mouse.
We watched Polar Express and all fell into bed.
Christmas morning!
The girls wasted no time playing with new Legos.
Face Time with my sister and her crew.
More Lego building.
Rebecca being the "teacher".
We played games and ate a lot of good food.
It was a warm 73  degrees on Christmas Day!
