Christmas Time

I can't believe I haven't blogged since Thanksgiving! Shame on me. I will try to be better, I will make that one of my many New Year's Resolutions.
Well, Christmas was everything it should be, family, food, and fun. We sure missed Clint, Hay, boys, and little girl in the oven, this year. One Christmas down and one more to go until they are back living in the States. Let me tell you it was a much quieter Christmas at the Wilson's without 3 of the 4 boys. The noise and chaos was greatly missed though.
The Chandler Christmas was wonderful this year as well. This was Kenzie and Khloe's first Christmas so that made it extra special. We opened presents for over 2 hours! It was insane! But we savored it because it only comes once a year. We laughed and watched each person open every single gift. It was fantabulous! As you will see the gifts got out of control though!
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, I know we did!

Chandler Family Thanksgiving

So Many Things to be Thankful For...

Boy, I could really fill up a blog with all the things that I am thankful for this year. Mostly I am thankful for my family, which these pictures are just a few of them. We may not get to see each other often or spend big holidays together, but they are always right there in my heart, not just on Thanksgiving but on every day of the year.

Every little girl needs diamonds...

Since I babysit Khloe on Fridays, I always have more pictures of her than Kenzie, but I am trying to work on that. So when I'm babysitting I always take pictures! Khloe got her ears pierced recently and then I let her wear my diamond necklace and she was in Heaven, as most girls would be! Isn't she gorgeous? I think so ;)

Holding Hands

So I kept the girls the other day and they were not very cooperative 90% of the time, but that other 10% was so sweet. I had them laying on the blanket and I look over and they are holding hands! I ran out to my car to get my camera and came back and they were still doing it! Precious is not the word!
Boy, do I love watching them grow!
Khloe is on the left and she is Katie and Josh's daughter, for those of you who don't know which is which. She is almost 3 months old.
Kenzie is on the right and she is my brother Wes and Bianca's daughter. She is 4-1/2 months old.

Tech vs. Texas ~ A Battle for the Ages ~

College football doesn't get any better than it did last night. Wow! What a game! I so wish I could have been there to feel that electricity in Lubbock. Tech lead the whole game until the 4th quarter and they let Texas pull ahead by one point. I just knew it was over with like 8 seconds left on the clock. Tech has let this happen to them before, so many times. I had a sick feeling in my stomach. But no, what happened, Harrell and Crabtree connected for one more touchdown with 1 second left on the clock. 39-33. It's over and we've just got a year worth of bragging rights! YAY! I have never been more proud to call myself a Red Raider!

In a matter of seconds, seasons change. In a last-second dream drive, Texas Tech got its biggest win by upsetting No. 1 Texas. To that end, the Red Raiders have arrived on the national scene as the Longhorns fade. ~Ivan Maisel~

Happy Halloween!

We had a fabulous Halloween this year! We had dinner out at our house for the second year in a row. I think we will make this a tradition. I cook a Halloween-themed dinner and we dress Walker up so everyone can see him. It gets really hard to take Walker trick-or-treating to just my family's houses. I know we live in a small town but my family could not be more spread out. It would take us hours just to drive everywhere. So right now it just makes more sense for everyone to come and see us.
We had chili, cornbread, punch, pecan pie, and lots of other goodies! It was so much fun! Hope everyone had a fun and frightful Halloween!

Halloween is getting closer! Yea! I loved Halloween as a kid, it was probably my favorite! We dressed up Walker, Kenzie, and Khloe in their costumes last week and they were not cooperating but they looked cute anyway. Walker is a boxer, Kenzie is a whoopie cushion, and Khloe is a 50's girl. Aren't they precious????

Amber's Trip to Texas

A couple of weekends ago my cousin came and visited from New York. Her dad lives in Graham so we met up at Possum Kingdom Lake for a day of relaxing and catching up. We haven't seen Amber in 7 years! It had been way too long! Amber brought her boyfriend Phil who was awesome! They make an adorable couple. I wish that we lived closer so that we could do more together. :(
Amber brought Walker and the girls I LOVE NY shirts that were so cute! Walker had to put his on immediately! Thanks Amber!
We miss you and wish we could get together more often! Love!

He really wants to be able to carry them both around like little rag dolls. He doesn't understand why they won't just get up and play with him.

My Joys

Nothing warms my heart like these little smiles, except for maybe my 3 nephews smiles whom I don't see everyday. :(
I'm so glad that Walker is going to grow up with some of his cousins living right here in the same town. We are going to have lots of fun with these kiddos!
