All my friends has a low rider

Gage got a huge gift from Santa this morning. He got a car! I know, he is only 3! I have to admit, I jealous. I wish I had something like that when I was a kid. He was a little scared of it at first, but when I let Ellie ride (I know... I'm brave) he liked it (at least for a few feet). Here are some pictures of that adventure.
Did you notice the license plate?
Ellie:"What does this button do"
Gage:"Hey, Pawpaw Ellie's riding with me"

Gage:"You ready Ellie. Here we go..."

The night before Christmas

by Clement Clarke Moore
or Henry Livingston

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;

And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,

Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,

Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow

Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,

I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donder and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,

When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,

So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,

With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof

The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.

As I drew in my hand, and was turning around,

Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,

And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;

A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,

And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His eyes -- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,

And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,

And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;

He had a broad face and a little round belly,

That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,

And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,

And laying his finger aside of his nose,

And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;

He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,

And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New Year!!!

Momma's little helper

As I was doing the dishes the other night, I had an unexpected helper. She did try to help as much as she could, but she was better at taking things out instead of putting it in.

Had to write about it! GO GATORS!! Florida Gators are this years SEC Champs! I sooooo can't wait to get to school on Monday and do the Gator chomp in all my kids faces! I bet some of them won't even come to school so that they don't have to deal with me. LOL! All week long, me and Josh both have been getting it from every Alabama fan that we know. It was always about how they were going to kill us and just dominate. Well, I think Alabama did a great job in the game, but Florida was the better team. I mean they even did it without two of their best running backs (Harvin and Ingram). Now on to the National Championship!

By the way, Josh was right. Every time that Adam and him goes to the SEC championship game together (without anyone else) Florida always wins! I guess that is a new tradition that won't soon be broken.

Like Father, Like Daughter.

Well, tomorrow is the big day. Florida vs Alabama for the SEC Championship. I can't wait for it to be over because I am so tired of listening to all the "talk" about it. I will be watching and cheering on Florida though. Won' t miss this game for the world.

Tonight we had Gabe's birthday party and we just can't wait for tomorrow. So, we decided to go ahead and dress for the occasion. Josh said that we should dress Ellie in something Florida. I told him that I didn't think she could wear anything she had, but I would try on her jersey. It's 12mths but she is starting to wear some of those clothes. So why not. I gave it a try and she could wear it. IT WAS SOOO CUTE!! I did have to put a bow in her hair because I was afraid that she looked to much like a boy. Well, Josh noticed that her jersey was #1 and he had one too. So, here are the pictures for you to see them in their matching outfits!

Ellie does love Carter!

My friend Ashley now has a blog ( and she has just put a post about Ellie and Carter riding the "Carter Express". I had Ellie in my lap as I was reading it and she recognized Carter and started reaching for the computer screen and talking her normal gibberish. It was so sweet!!! I called for Josh to come in a get a few pictures of her. I guess she really does love Carter!!
