New Blog

I have finally filled up the space on this blog, so I have created a new address. If you still enjoy following our little life please check us out at

Happy New Year!!!

2 Lunches Are Better Than One!

We had not 1, but 2 lunches on Christmas Day! First we ate at my Mom and Dad's house, then we at at Daniel's parent's house. We were so fortunate that my cousin Russell and his family were able to come in from Kansas to see us this year.

Caden smiled, but did not want to look at the camera.

Chase and Ainsley don't mind taking pictures.

Christmas with Gigi and Papa

Christmas morning Gigi and Papa come over for breakfast and to open presents. We had a wonderful time and are blessed to have such a great family. After eating and opening presents we attend First Christian Church for their Christmas service.

Santa Came To Our House!!

Christmas started at 5:45am this year. Since it fell on Sunday we had to set our alarm to make sure we had enough time to see what Santa brought and make it to Church.

Santa went overboard!

Ainsley was thrilled with her Christmas!

A beautiful gown to dress up with.

Loves her new bike!!

Santa remembered to bring Ainsley a Lalaloopsy with bendable hair.

And a doll with matching outfits.

Ready for Santa

Ainsley left milk and peanut butter cookies for Santa and frosted flakes and water for the reindeer.

Christmas Eve 2011

Christmas is here and we start the first of several events at the Martin's for Christmas Eve. All the kids get tons of presents, so they are ready to open them before we even eat!

Mimi's Christmas Tree FULL of presents!

Corbin has decided to be a Mississippi State fan, which Daniel and I are thrilled about.  I am sure it is temporary though, so I had to get proof!

Ainsley being sweet trying to get a present.

A Cotton Plant Christmas

We drove to Cotton Plant, Ms to see over 500 inflatables and I don't know how many lights. Daniel gave up his jacket to wrap Ainsley up, so we walked a little faster to see everything. Even though Ainsley was freezing she loved every minute of it!

Best inflatable on the whole property.
