Hunter had his picture made for the senior banners and this picture was sent to us. This is a great group of boys. 

 We had a busy Saturday watching Charlie at his swim meet then going to Carter's basketball game.

Hunter had his last lesson with Jacob. Jacob is headed to play for the Nationals organization.

I was so happy Izzy was out at recess with me. It felt like last year when she was in my class. 

 I love these 4 kiddos. They are such sweet good kids. This was at the Arlington vs. Bartlett game.

 Hannah loves Hunter & Haley

Senior baseball boys working the beauty pageant.

I just love Beau's curls!

Hunt and Syd went to Syd's Winter dance.

These are typical Hunt & Syd. They are so fun & silly.

Hunter and I went Valentine shopping.

Hunter, Haley & I have the BEST Valentine ever! He always makes us the sweetest most thoughtful cards and gives us our favorite goodies.

One of my students brought these yummy cookies. I thought they were so sweet.

We met the Willouby's at Taco Bell for a dinner date.

Robbie did something to his elbow. We are not sure what and neither is Campbell's Clinic. We have learned we will never go there again!

I love getting to see Uncle Bill on Wednesday nights.

We had the Meet the Players banquet. I can't believe it's our last one. This is the Seniors.

I love these two boys and their friendship. They are both such good boys. We are going to miss them playing together.

Syd was able to go to the banquet with us. I always have to get a picture of these cuties.

It's been a busy few months. Now on to March...

Snow Days

Snow days sure have changed in our house. The excitement of a snow day still exist, but the activities are much different. Gone are the days of waking up early, finding all of the cold gear and running out to make a snowman. Then coming in to dry everything and head back out to play some more. Now it's waking up late, fixing breakfast/snack foods, watching movies, playing cards, dominoes, or watching Hunter playing video games. While the activities have changed tremendously, the family time is just as cherished. I love spending as much time as I can with my family. One thing the past has taught us is that tomorrow is never promised and to enjoy life everyday.

 With snow, the weekend, and the holiday on Monday we had 7 days off school.

We overdid it on the snacks. 

Hunter actually hurt his ankle at crossfit on the last day before the snow. We had to wait until Tuesday to get him in to the doctor. Thankfully it was just a sprain. With physical therapy he will be good as new in a few weeks. 

We kept Jase & Torrey so David and Kim could work on their new house. Hopefully they will be in Arlington soon. 

Torrey loves Uncle Robbie. They had a serious conversation about everyone hitting her with snowballs. Which was funny since she stayed inside. :)

I love these two so much. I can't believe in a year and 1/2 they will both be in college. 
I am so thankful that God blessed me with a wonderful family.

New Years Trip to Indy

 We headed to Indiana on Friday. We were all very excited. We had 4 things on our checklist.
1. See Mills Girls
2. Pick up Allie (Haley's best friend) for the weekend
3. See snow
4. Go to the Colts game
We checked everything off our list! We had a great trip.

Haley was so excited to get to spend the entire weekend with Allie. 

 We played speak out. It was hilarious. I actually peed my pants laughing so hard.

On Saturday we had a carefree day. We went to Applebees for lunch and watched the Memphis game. Then we dropped the kids off at the Outlet Mall. They shopped for a few hours with their Christmas money and we picked them back up. 

 We taught the kids how to play chicken foot dominos. They actually loved it.

Saturday night we went to Ali's house. We gave the girls their presents. We got them Tiger pillow pets.

Ainsely jumped in with us so she could sit between Hunter & Sydney. LOL

We went to a Mexican restaurant. We were there about 10 minutes when the power went out. We ate cheese dip for about 15 minutes then headed to a different Mexican restaurant.

We have kept these girls since they were babies. We sure miss seeing them all the time. We love our Mills girls. 

The girls have always had their favorites. Haley is Landrey's and Hunter is Ainsley's. We even joked with Sydney that Ainsley wouldn't like her at first. She did warm up to her though.

 On New Years Eve Day we went to the Colts game. The Colts won and it was so much fun.

It was cold!!!

After the game we had a very low key night. We played dominos, five crowns, and more dominos. I was very impressed that we had three 16 year old girls and an 18 year old boy and they stayed off their phones all night.

We tried to influence Allie on her college decision. Go Tigers Go!

I can't describe how much I love these 4 kiddos. They are all amazing young people. God has big plans for all of them.

The year he graduates high school. 

Saying goodbye is always hard. :(

My car got nasty with all the snow and salt.  

Happy New Year 2018!!!
