Christmas 2012

Everyone wide awake, Abby is fever free, and the gifts are all opened! Let's see what Santa brought the kiddos.


Santa managed to find a hippopotamus for Christmas! Just like in the song that Mrs. Monica at daycare taught Isaac to sing. :)

 Alabama t-shirts

 A Dora mermaid outfit- since Abby told Santa she wanted a mermaid tail

 Underwear!! It was a huge hit!

 Trains!

Cars! They go along with his Hot Wheels jumper track. (no picture, sorry)

 More trains!

 And even more trains! Andy got 2 different train sets.

 Jake and the Neverland Pirates spyglass, map and headband! I have to explain that this gift was originally brought for Andy. However, upon opening, Andy decided it wasn't his because it was not a train. Isaac was more than willing to take it for himself.

 A little diva dress!

 It fits!

With accessories from Grammy and Papa Delk!
Abby also received a Princess camping set with a tent, sleeping bag, backpack, and flashlight. (It's on her back) Abby decided that, out of everything, the flashlight was the best gift. I'll remember this for next year. 

Last but not least, here are pics from a few weeks ago. Joe bought mini trees for the kids' rooms.



Here are pics of our Christmas tree, also from a few weeks ago.



And a little video of Abby sharing the story of Jesus' birth, using the stick puppets she made in Sunday School.

Merry Christmas everyone!


Merry Delk Christmas 2012

Yesterday we celebrated Joe's family's Christmas in Cookeville. Uncle JD, Aunt Beth and Grammy Delk did all the cooking and it was fabulous!


 Little Diva. While the boys went on a manly shopping trip after lunch, we ladies got to watch The Little Mermaid. Best idea ever! (Aunt Beth)

 Uncle Craig and Andy

 Papa Delk and Isaac

 Daddy and Isaac (Uncle JD and Andy in the background)

Aunt Beth being fabulous

The kids, of course, made out like bandits. Abby received all things Princess- dolls, jewelry, clothes, activities. Andy and Isaac received cars (66 Hot Wheels between the 2 of them) Angry Birds outfits, Andy received trains, and Isaac received things that require batteries. (I don't see the batteries lasting long.)

Mommy and Daddy received just what we asked for- gift cards and cash!! Merry Christmas to us!! :)

Santa also answered our wishes while driving home- naps for everyone in the backseat.

Stay posted for all thing Christmas! We still have 3 more to go!

The beauty of the Nutcracker...

The convenience of my living room!

The channel Ovation has been running different versions of the Nutcracker. I love watching different versions! Some are crazy, while some are more traditional. I watch it and think, "Dang, I wish I had talent."

Abby and Andy watched it with me and they thought, "What a fun dance party!"

Here are some videos I took of Abby being a ballerina, and Andy being her break-dancing prince.

And to make this post super-cute, I'm including the twins' fall pictures. :)

Breakfast with Santa 2012

This is the first year we have participated in Breakfast with Santa and it was a success! These are the pictures I took. We will get the "professional" copies soon.  Mr. Petty, the photographer, got a cute one of Abby giving Santa a kiss on the cheek. :)





 The kids had a great time! We sat with Kitty and Apple John, Matt and Ben. I can see us doing this again next year!
