Sweet South Tournament Champions!!

This is just a quick note to say that Charlemagne's team got first place in their tournament today! I am so proud of him and the boys. They really played hard the past 3 days. This is the 8th year (i think its 8) they have had the tournament. This is the first time they have ever won it. The girls also won..We are sooo proud of the teams! I just hope it continues the rest of the season.

I hope everyone has a HAPPY NEW YEAR and are safe with their travel tonight...I will post another blog next year:)lol..I just love saying that:)
Take care!

Christmas cont...






Can you believe Christmas has come and gone already?? I can't. Well I hope everyone had a good one and didn't blink to fast..b/c it did go by fast! We had a real good one. As I mentioned in my last post, we had Christmas with my family. Charlemagne's parents came up Christmas Eve and brought Austin..We got to spend it with them. We woke up the next morning and Santa came. I think Christa was in Heaven when she saw all the toys! She was so much fun this year! Here are a few pictures of that morning.

















That evening Morgan and Farah came and we all packed up and went to Augusta to have Christmas dinner with Grandma Julia..We had fun there to. We ended up coming back that night and just laying around the next day while we watched Christa play with all her new toys.
OHHH..One more thing. Christa has never really been the child to just sit and watch tv. BUT we found a movie she loves and will watch it over and over. Its the Polar Express. Thank goodness its a movie that I like as well and knew every word to now:)
You can also find these pictures on our new web site..... http://lifeofagibbons.shutterfly.com/
I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!! Love you!!

~Christmas with my family~

I know it has been a while since I have written. Sorry about that. We have been so busy! It started when I went to TN to stay with my parents for a while and to pick up my grandmother. We left to come back home last Monday and she stayed with me the whole week! We had so much fun. My grandmother is the best! She moved to TN also so she is farther from me and I don't get to see her as much as I would like. I probably call her everyday to see what she is doing. That week we clean house and went Christmas shopping. My parents came friday and my brother came saturday. We had Christmas at our house. It was nice for all of us to be together again! Living in GA I don't get to spend time with them either like I would like to. I am so used to being in the same town as all of my family. I would have never thought that it would be hard not to have any family here, but with 2 kids, it is so hard. I am thankful for the friends I do have that loves to watch the girls when I need them to. Here are a few pictures from our christmas...


























As you may know, or may not know, I put all my pictures on a web site. Well that web site got suspended. I think I was supposed to buy something for it to be in "good standing". Which I was not going to buy anything..So...I had to find another site that would let me share photos for free. This is when I found the shutterfly..It is a neat little site and so I am in the process of putting our christmas pictures up. Feel free to visit and leave comments on the site. It is still under construction though. The link is: http://lifeofagibbons.shutterfly.com/ . Enjoy!

Brea's doctor visit

I took Brea to the doctor today. She has grown a lot. She weighs 15 lbs. 7 oz (a gain of about 1 lb & in the 75th%-90%). Her head circumference is about 15' (gain of about 1 inch & 50th%). And what amazed me the most is her length. She is 26' long (a gain of 3 inches & in the 97th%!!) I think she is going to be so tall..Hopefully we will have a successful volleyball or basketball player in our hands:)
videoOur other one I is taking up cheerleading at the moment...lol

I forgot to post in my last blog that we went to the Christmas parade here in Madison. We met one of our friends and her kids along with a couple others. I just wanted to post the picture of Christa and the girls at the parade. I was surprised, but she didn't even get scared. She watched so intensely though. It is so much fun to do these things with her now that she has gotten older. I can't wait to see her face at Christmas when she opens her gifts. She amazes me so much!!
Christa & Friends

And we can't forget about Brea:)
Oh..And another thing I forgot to tell you. I just wanted to share with you the imagination my child, Christa, has. I found her pretending to feed her baby doll one day. As I watched, I noticed she does the same things I do when I feed Brea or what I do when Christa eats. I just wanted to post a few pictures of this. It was so funny!!
Pushing her baby's chair up to the table

Feeding..Notice her mouth..To funny!!
videoFeeding the baby...notice her putting her hand under the doll's mouth. I do this exact thing when she puts to much food in her mouth so she can spit it out. The are amazing how much they learn!!

videoFeeding the baby (continue) and now she is throwing it away..lol
So until next time...MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Christmas is getting closer

Well me and Charlemagne took the girls to see Santa Claus last weekend. They did real good! When we were standing and waiting on the people in front of us, Christa was watching the little girls in front of us. They were crying when their parents was trying to get her to sit on his lap. I was just thinking to myself "oh great, Christa is going to watch them and do the same thing". But to a suprise she didn't. We did have to put Brea on his lap first and then Christa followed. I guess she saw he wasn't a bad guy after all since he let her sit on his lap. We of course got pictures, but we will get them this weekend. I will post that picture when I get it.

On Thursday, me and the girls are going to my mom's house in TN. We are going to pick up my grandmother and bring her back to our house on Monday. She is going to spend a week with us..I'm so excited!! I love when she comes and stays because I love spending time with her! Next weekend my parents are coming down and we are going to have our Christmas. I have all my shopping done for them with the exeption of a couple of things.

Last, Brea is rolling over!! I can't believe it. She is growing so fast! I take her to the doctor tomorrow for her 4 month check up. I can't believe she is 4 months already..Before I know it she is going to be crawling then walking..I will post how much she is grown when I find out.

So until I have other random things to post, take care:)
