Flemmons Christmas

On our way to West Texas, we love to stop at our sweet friends, the White's, in Hamlin.
Chad is one of two docs in town and Jennifer is a PT and stay-at-home mom that home-schools their 5 kids. The three older boys are Caleb, Jackson, and Benjamin. They have a new set of twins that are 13 months, Luke and Lillie Kate. If you are ever passing through Hamlin, the Whites are wonderful people to stop and see...even when we call them at the last minute, they always have a snack waiting in the fridge and a present for the kids!! I don't know how they do it!
Katelin loves playing with the boys. I think Jackson and Katelin are going to be boyfriend and girlfriend one of these days...see the look in their eyes, and Katelin asks about Jackson all the time!!
The boys on the front porch freezing waiting to wave us "bye"
At Mema and Pa's we spend most of our Playing Pitch.
The girls spent most of their time primping.

Katelin loved getting inside the toy basket and covering herself with all of the toys. Tye just sitting back and enjoying the ride.

We spent a day visiting my cousins in Lubbock. Dell and Julie have three kids: Hannah, Ryan, and baby Ethan. Such a sweet family.

We then went and visited my mom's side of the family. They are such a sweet family...
...most of the time!! John and David playing Uno Attack.
I think David's hand won every game...his hand did get traded every time, but to him it still counts that his hand won!
The kids had a great time building a tent.

It was a short trip to West Texas, but we love going there to have lots of good Mema cookin' and Pitch Playin'.
As kids we were never allowed to play on the treadmill thing in the corner, but now as great-grand kids...they get away with everything!!
Packed in the family 'Burb. No, we did not go for the Suburban just yet, we borrowed Meg's dad's suburban to travel to West Texas. Kari and Keslyn joined us on the way back to Round Rock and helped keep the kids in order in the back seat.
SUV, here we come!! (Actually, we have decided we are going to buy a Mini-Van, but call it a "Sports-Utility Van"!!...I think that's a fair compromise)

Bolding Christmas

We spent Christmas Day with Meghan's family this year.

You should have seen Katelin when she came down stairs and saw all of the goodies under the tree!
Sweet Santa Tye
Katelin had a great time "helping" everyone open their presents.
Katelin loves her clothes and had to try them all on at once.

Katelin showing off her domestic side. She loves to help clean around the house. I'm not sure where she learned ironing from, though. I don't think we have ironed since Katelin was born!!
Crazy Zane and Val:

Here is Katelin under the tree with Granddaddy making sure he gets ALL of the presents out.

Taking the new wheels out for a spin.

Katelin had such a great time opening presents this year.
She got a "monkeys jumping on the bed" game and we caught her lining them all up with their heads on the pillows...too cute. She was telling them they had to go to bed. If only she would take her own advice!!
Gametime after the presents:
Katelin having PB&J for Christmas dinner while we enjoy turkey leftovers.
Day after Christmas:

Rock Band at Chad and Jenny's --the best game ever!
I think we have a drummer in the family. Just look at that face...Katelin was getting all into it.
Tye in the Mosh Pit :) He was actually trying to help Chad sing a little.
I think I'll ask for an X-Box 360, Rock band 3, and a 73 inch plasma for Christmas next year :)
Welcome to our new blog! We thought this would be a fun way to share our pictures and lives with family and friends. Thanks for visiting. Enjoy!
Katelin celebrated her first birthday at her grandparents' house in Round Rock. We grilled hamburgers and had cake and homemade ice cream.

Katelin's one! (April 2007)
We went to the Grand Canyon for our vacation this year. We stayed in Sedona, Arizona. The mule ride was great fun! We suggest everyone seeing the Grand Canyon at least once in a lifetime.

Summer is definitely here! Katelin loves the pool.
