Christmas Update

We had a great Christmas this year!

On Christmas Eve, we had our Christmas with Alison's parents (well John had to work until 6 pm so he didn't come over until after work). We had our usual breakfast casserole and then opened presents. Camryn racked up, of course. She was excited about all she got and that is what is so fun about Christmas! Her Pawpaw got her a magic kit...she seemed a little disappointed that is was more "trick" that "magic". Santa brought the family the game "Scene It- TV Edition". It was fun. The four of us played and then when John came over we played again. It was relaxing and fun to be with family. To see pictures of this you will have to go to the link for "Momma's Photos" and click on the Christmas Folder.

On Christmas Morning, we woke up and opened the gifts we got each other. Then in a mad rush we loaded up the Explorer and went to Keith and Janna's for our Kerr Christmas. Not our normal Kerr Christmas, because Pat's family didn't come and Bobby and Melba could only stay for a few hours, but it was fun to get together and eat and play games. Melba made breakfast casserole and we ate and then opened some presents. Then we played Cranium! That game is always fun. After Bobby and Melba left to do Christmas with her family, Janna and I had made snack foods and Keith had smoked a ham and chicken. We just ate and ate and ate...even when we weren't hungry we ate some more! We played Hand and Foot and then Mexican Train.
Well as you can tell we had a good time during Christmas. Now is it time to start exercising to work off the extra food that was eaten during this time. Click on "Our Photos" link to the right to see pictures.
Happy New Year!

New Things in Our Lives

Well there is quite a bit going on with us...excluding the Christmas Holiday.

1) This week John became Full-Time at Dillard's. That is an answer to prayer as he really enjoys working there and has wanted to be full-time for a while now.

2) Because John is now full-time, he is having to be a work either when the store opens or around noon. That making finding someone to take him to work difficult. So, his dad helped out in getting his license reinstated so he can drive and Keith offered the Ford Explorer for him to as of yesterday, he has a vehicle and can drive himself to work. Another answer to prayer.

3) Since this summer, I have really been thinking and praying about selling Premier Jewelry as a side business. Now that John works a lot of nights and the weekends, I realized this would be the perfect time for me to start selling Premier Jewelry. So, today I am expecting the FedEx driver with my starter kit and package of sample jewelry. Premier's core values are God, then Family, then work. Pray for me to be God's light to all the people I come in contact with in Home Shows. Also, if you want to have a party, our hostess receive 30% of total retail sales in FREE jewelry! So get in touch with me and we can get your Home Show on my calendar!

Oh yeah...and Christmas is coming in 4 days!!!

God Bless you and your family this Christmas Season!

Update on John

Just a small update on John. He was feeling better yesterday, but was pretty sore. We went over to Park Plaza mall to do a little shopping and after a while, he started to swell more (he said he looked like a chipmunk) and seemed to be a little we headed back home. He took his medication and some Advil and that seemed to help. He was sleeping good this morning when I left for work. Keep praying for continued healing...and thanks to those who have called to check on him.

Doing Good

Well, we are back home and John's wisdom teeth removal went well. They did have trouble getting him knocked out and had to give him more Versed to get him in "La-La" land. We expected that, but he is doing well. In fact, he is snoring as I write this blog. Gus is being the loyal dog that he is and staying right beside Daddy in the recliner (see picture below). Thanks for your prayers. He has not felt any pain yet and hopefully he won't have a lot of pain with this healing!

Removal of Wisdom Teeth

On Monday, December 11th, John will be having his wisdom teeth removed. I believe he only has 3 wisdom teeth...according to the dentist. He has not had any surgery or been under any anesthesia so he is a little nervous about that. Please keep him in your prayers on Monday and I'll blog again on Monday afternoon.

It is COLD here this morning! Yesterday was a nasty rainy day with the temperatures dropping all day. Last night around 8:30 or 9:00 I noticed the wind really started to pick up and by around 10 p.m. it was already drying off the roads but getting much colder. It would have been nice to see some snowflakes, but unfortunately that did not happen at my house.

Plans for the weekend - John-work; Alison-Ladies Pampering Night at my church tonight and probably spend some time with my best friend and her kids (my adopted niece and nephew) some on Saturday.

Oh and probably the biggest thing happening this weekend: the Hogs play for the SEC championship against Florida on Saturday evening! Hopefully they had a wake up call last week and will come out fighting! Go HOGS!!
