It's that time of year again! Time to untangle those lights, drag out the millions of ornaments and put up that tree (that leans a little to one side). No matter what, it's a fun time of year and we love to decorate the tree as a family. This was Emersyn's first time and, by the picture below, I don't think she was too impressed. Oh well, she'll get used to the craziness of decorating! Everyone gets an ornament to add to the tree every year. (I have to throw away quite a few of the old ornaments every year to make room for the new ones. The tree IS only so big after all!) Lauren always chooses an ornament with "shoes".
Chad got one of his favorites this year. A "Charlie Brown" ornament that plays the Charlie Brown theme song.
Danny chose "Hoops and Yoyo". They just crack me up!
Jon and Anne Marie had to hang their own ornaments plus one for Emersyn.
We had a great time decorating, eating cookies and listening to Christmas music! It's the most "wonderful" time of the year!!!!
Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone but we are all so thankful for our family and all the blessings God has given us! We all met at our house for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. We were so blessed to have most of our family with us. Here are Chad and Sam before lunch. Katelynd makes a wonderful baby sitter! Audrey just loves her!! Lauren and Kim really didn't want their picture made. Oh well, whatever!! Here are all the kiddos with Anne Marie: Ashley, Patrick, Katelynd, Audrey and Emersyn. Jan and Patrick with silly faces. Patrick loves to have his picture made with everyone, even Papa! Sam and a very tired Audrey. That baby can sleep anywhere! Ashley, Mama and Greg! (Where are Ashley's teeth???) Avery sticky, tired Audrey! The newest Underwood family, Jon, Anne Marie and Emersyn. A very proud Grampa with his angel! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Well, the pictures are backwards (again) but we'll start with Sunday night. The whole family came over to cook hamburgers on the grill and greet the trick or treaters. We all sat on the front porch (except Jon, Anne Marie and Emersyn) after dinner to check out all the costumes.
Mother loves to put on a witch hat and "try" to scare all the trick or treaters. She'd peek out from behind one of our columns and say "boooooo". My dad even got in on the act making scary noises and barking like a dog. Lauren just hung out and watched.
This is Chad, the candy man!
Mother in her witch hat with her "mean" face.
Oh well, I copied the same picture twice and don't know how to get rid of it!
On Saturday night, Mom, Dad and I went up to First Baptist Douglasville for trunk or treat. It was a lot of fun watching all the costumes, eating hot dogs and cotton candy and listening to the music. There were about a million kids there!!!
Even Emersyn came, dressed as a frog with a big bow (of course).
Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband who celebrated his birthday on September 22. It's been kind of a crazy time so we were a little late with the party but we finally worked it into everyone's schedule. Thanks for being such a loving, kind father and husband. We love you more than you'll ever know!! How old did you say you are???? What's that???? Yes, I'm still older. Thanks!
Our precious Emersyn is 17 days old and such an angel. She has her fussy moments but we wouldn't trade her for the world. She has really rocked Jonathan and Anne Marie's world. No one can tell you what a difference having a baby in the house is. Nothing is untouched or remains the same, especially the ability to sleep! But as it has been said, this too will pass! And it will, in a huge HURRY! We love our little bundle of joy and she is such a tremendous blessing from GOD! I really don't think she's much into these headbands and bows. What a face!!
She loves riding in the car seat!
Such a sweet picture!
Precious, beautiful doll!
She even smiled for her great-grandmother, Mama! (Or maybe it was gas???)
Our precious Emersyn Kate has finally arrived. Born August 26 at 9:26pm, she weighed 9 lbs. 7 oz. and was 21 inches long. What a beautiful, wonderful blessing for our family! She is so loved from the top of her head to the bottom of her toes! Welcome precious angel!!!! She's such a mommy's girl right now! No one can comfort her like her mommy!!
What a beautiful new addition to Jon and Anne Marie's family!
We are some very proud grandparents to be known as Nana and Grampa.
Can't believe Jonathan's birthday has come and gone! I'm a little behind. Life is pretty crazy right now but we got together and grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and had cake and ice cream on Saturday to celebrate the birth of a wonderful, loving, talented young man. He makes us so proud to call him son! As you can see, my pictures are backwards again. (I'll never learn!)
Pretty mean to make the poor guy light his own candles!
We love you Jonathan and are sooo, soooo, proud of the fine young man you've become! Can't believe you're 29. Jeez, don't blink!!!!
I'm the wife of Danny and the mom of Jonathan and Lauren. Jonathan is married to Anne Marie and they have a beautiful daughter Emersyn. Lauren is married to Chad and they have a precious little daughter Kinsley!! Love my family!
