What a morning! The kiddos arose to such a clatter. As usual Aunt KK and cousin BB woke us up early and the party began. Needless to say the kids were spoiled. It was so great to sit back and take it all in. Hoot received a Red Rider BB gun from his Papa. It was really the only thing he wanted, but he got really nervous once opened. He was afraid it was going to be too loud or give his shoulder a real kick. Shortly after we finished the gift exchange, we made our way outside for some target practice!!! We could have our own reality show!! Were gun slingers now! Hoot renamed himself Black Bart and is ready to take aim at birds. He mastered the targets on the toy kitchen box and he's ready to move on to bigger and better prey... Too bad he doesn't come from a family of hunters.


Lambert has a 72 Chevy that he takes to car shows and cleans all the time... my dad found this print of a truck that looks identical to Lambert's. It's really awesome.

Here it is!!!

Wawa thought ALL of the gifts belonged to her!!!

Frist Lambert took a try..

Then Big Mama came out to give it a shot..
Don't even thing about messing with this packing mamma in pink pj's and a puffy vest...

Hoot decided if I could do it then surely he could too!

He had to get the hang of cocking it.

He caught on quick and then got a little prideful

You know Wawa had to try...

Now she's Little Orphan Annie
It was a good morning... now things are quiet, the house is still. Libbie is napping and Hoot is playing his new wii game. Daddy is eating a sandwhich and I'm about to read my new book by Johnnie Cash Jr. Later we will read the Christmas story, sing happy birhtday to Jesus and have some birhtday cake.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, SAL

  3. Hi, I saw on your blog that your husband made a Riley headboard, like the one from Pottery Barn? We are thinking about trying to make one. Doyou have any suggestions or advice? I have the slipcover that I got cheap, but can't bear to buy the bed due to all the shipping costs, so expensive! Thank you for any suggestions you may have!

  4. I love seeing your Christmas pics, especially with that little doll in them! Love Hoot and his Red Ryder :) I got a new laptop, and NOW I can post on your blog again, for some reason our OLD desktop wouldn't let me :)
