How Time Flies!!

video

Where did all my little people go? This clip brings tears to my eyes as I see how big they have gotten. This video was taken in the Lodge when we first arrived in Japan 6 years ago. The camera man needs to focus better but still a memorable piece.

Christmas 2008

What's a trip to Fl. without hitting beaches?? Even if it is December...

We decided to take full advantage of the low gas prices and back to Fl. we went for Christmas '08.

Mike's "other" dad, Mr. Andy!!


















Mama Cora and the boys- we had such a great time with Mama Cora and Mrs. Cooper. We ate to our hearts content and had some of the best red velvet cake and tilapia!!




2008 Continues......

The Birthday boy and his "mommy"
The "Birthday Mom" and her grandboys!!
Our first time meeting Derrick's fiance'! Presenting Deanna Ebanks (Rahming)


Can you tell who's birthday??



The cake.....

With gas prices being so low we were able to drive down to Florida for Thanksgiving and Mike's b-day. What a GREAT time we had!! We hadn't had Thanksgiving with family in a long time. We were truly thankful for the opportunity.

Mikey and Flag Football...




Mikey was able to play with the local Flag
Football team for Greenville. Boy did we miss MWR!! The practices were nill and none. Our coach threw together plays on the day of the game....needless to say we were massacred at every game. Other than the parents griping, Mikey had a blast and was nominated MVP for his team

Got Game.....












This was a very exciting and fun time for us! Gabey had the opportunity to play tackle football for the first time. Unfortunately, Mikey was too old to play with the league. The practices were outstanding the time and effort giving by the coaches was awesome. It was about praying together and playing together. Our only concern came when we saw that some of the kids in Gabey's age group was as big as Mike... YIKES!!! and OUCH!! One game Gabey's team had about 5 injuries!!
