Weekend Wrap-up: Goodbye January

This weekend started off with a bang! We got the best surprise this week when my mom called and ask if all three grand-kids could spend the night with her and pops Friday night! I am not sure who screamed louder with excitement me or Gracie ;) So Tommy and I decided to just have a relaxing date night at home with none other than homemade sushi rolls and movie night! Best Idea Ever!

 Then on Saturday afternoon when the kiddos got back it was pretty windy so we decided to try out of new kite we got for Christmas. The kids were so stinking excited and were more than eager to help daddy put the airplane kite together. 

When my mom and dad pulled in the driveway with the kids Saturday and Gracie came running up the back steps with a huge smile I quickly noticed something was missing.... She pulled out her own tooth in my moms car. These no doubt will be some amazing school pictures :)

Also on Saturday Gracie wanted to go ride the big tractor with her daddy while he bush-hogged some roads in the back of the property. And about thirty minutes into it this was the picture I was sent... Nothing like a good snooze on a tractor ride huh?
And that wraps up our last weekend in January for 2014! Unbelievable.... And on a side note pray for snow tomorrow****** I am sure that if it snows I will revert back to a 5 year old within minutes of snow flakes... it is inevitable

Weekend Wrap-up

This weekend I helped host a baby shower for my good friend Meagan and sweet baby Riley who is due in March! I was really slack and forgot my camera ( go figure) but did get a couple pictures of the diaper cake I did for her.

Then on Sunday after church we went with my dad to some land that he care takes and shot skeet. It was a sweet time that we got to spend together! Thomas and Gracie got to practice shooting their little gun with Tommy's help and our nephew Chip was able to come join us in the fun!
I love the huge smile on Gracie's face...

And then mister intense.... 

By far my favorite picture from the day!! That was the last shot and his shoulder was killing him!

Aunt Katie had to challenge Chip in a shoot off! I lost :(

So seeing is how December has come and gone I will just post about some of the things we did the past month. 
This month Tommy and I celebrated 7 years of marriage. When I look at these three blessing I am so very thankful for their daddy. He is truly my best friend, my love and my unconditional supporter. 

I can't get enough of this little firecracker. She is so full of spunk I can't stand it. 

Christmas Program at Church

Emerson is totally the adopted 4th Martin child. We love her some much!

Christmas Eve at Granny and Papa's (Tom and Dawn's)

I absolutely love the picture of Tom and Annabelle. I can't tell who is more excited ;)
Tommy thankfully was able to help my dad fix their dock. I am so thankful and fortunate to have a husband who can so easily fix things.

Sunday naps are the best

Carson was so sweet to paint Annabelle's nails. Poor Carson I don't think Annabelle sat long enough to have her whole hand painted.

Three Musketeer's! It was the sweetest thing that these three went hunting with there daddies out at our place. 

95% of the time when Thomas and daddy go hunting this is what kind of picture I get.

And the boys were over the moon excited... Tracking a deer, playing in the woods at night with flashlights are totally what boys should be doing! They really enjoyed themselves.

Oyster Roast at Tom and Dawn's New Years Eve. And might I add Tom and Dawn went and picked their own oysters. Now how many of you can say your mother-in-law goes in a boat to pick her own oysters :)

Thomas was all about shucking them his self

Woody came and stayed the night with us and I really didn't think the kids were gonna be okay having to take him back to Wadmalaw
