What A Busy Time Of Year....

This past week was crazy but yet so much fun. First we had my work Christmas Party. What a time. I think everyone had an absolute blast..even Jim.

Our tree we used was out of my office. I decorated it with pictures of all the employees in our office. It turned out pretty cute I thought.

These were plastic martini glasses that we filled with peppermints and a tealight they turned out really cute!

On Friday we had our Life Group Christmas party at the Woolverton's. It was a great party with a great turnout. Thanks to everyone that helped get that together!

Look at our music minister Eric...Don't ask....haha! You know I took my camera to this party and some how this is the only picture I took all night. Well I guess because it gave us all a great laugh! We love y'all Kim and Eric!

This past Saturday my work decided to get together a float for the Christmas parade. We work alot of the day on Friday getting supplies together. Then on Saturday morning we were at the paper at 8am to start our masterpiece.

This was the start of the morning...well that is after donuts and coffee!

So what did ya think...pretty good float to be put together all in one day!

Rhonda even brought her Great Dane Daisy...Daisy was so good she walked with us beside the float the whole time. We could of just used her as our float she got lots of attention!

Update On My Mom....

Well Mom recovered fairly quickly from her stem cell transplant. But 4 weeks later she is back in the hospital with partial paralysis. They were going to run a battery of test on her today to try and figure out why this is happening. Of course they say they have never seen this reaction before. So please continue to keep her in your prayers. Hopefully they will get it figured out and she will get well soon! Also please keep Jim's mom in you prayers she needs them right now!

My Babies Are Growing Up....

So PayBo is getting way to big. He is so turning into a daddy's boy and it makes me soooo sad. He went on his first deer hunting trips this year and he did get him one and he was so excited I think he called the whole town of Athens and Linden. I still have to hear about it every morning on the way to school and its been a week since he killed it. He even wrote a story in school titled my favorite memory...and guess what it was about...of course his hunting trip.

He also got up on the roof with his dad last night to put up the Christmas lights...when he came in he was to funny...he said mom it was freezing out there and I risked my life for you. Kids they say the funniest things.

Colby is losing his teeth like crazy he lost his front two about 2 weeks ago and he pulled another on this week and he has 2 more that are loose. He is going to break the tooth fairy...haha!

This picture was taken the night he lost his first upper tooth the next day the other one was gone as well. Now one on the bottom is gone and more to follow.

Busy lives leaves little time for blogging....

I know I am horrible I think I have as many blogs saying this is a catch up blog as I do a normal everyday blog. But my life has been crazy, different, exciting, and unknown for the past two weeks. I have not even had time to just sit and breath.
You know those moments I'm talking about...the kind where you kick your feet up on the back porch with a nice breeze blowing and close your eyes and just listen to nature. Oh my goodness that sounds so great!

Unfortunately I don't see that time coming soon so I am gonna quickly update you on the Green family.

I have been swamped with work, due to so much going on there this time of year and also a new boss coming on the scene. It's been around 7:30-8 every night when I finally get to leave that place and still there are things that need to be done. And as for the new boss, still trying to make up my mind on that one.

Jim of course is working like crazy and having to do baseball every other night and then tournaments on the weekends (and yes I go to practices and games). Oh by the way Flo we went to Waco this past weekend to play in a tournament at the Rivercrest Park it was soooo nice! Also we may not have won any games but we were the best looking team...haha!

Also since we spent Colby's b-day playing baseball after the games Saturday night most of the team went with us to Applebee's and we celebrated there. He said he just wanted to go somewhere where they would sing to him and then when they did come out singing he acted like it scared him to death...haha!

Also Jim's sister Gwen and his parents came to watch Paybo play ball (well Gwen tried to come watch Paybo play but she got lost...haha love u Gwen) and to go with us to help celebrate Colby's b-day. He loved it all and had a great time!

Well I guess that's about it for now and I hope I can get you updated a little more often than I have been!

This is why I would love to adopt a girl....

Boys, boys and more boys. That's what the Green household is. When the boys were younger it was fine because they were momma's boys but not so much anymore. I mean don't get me wrong they still love their mom but they tend to go do more things with their dad now.

This is how you know you are over run with masculinity.

When your family outing is a trip out to a clay pit to shoot guns.

Jim with his deer rifle

PayBo with his 410

Colby with his BB Gun

However the clay pit was filled with water and it was absolutely beautiful! And it was a great day with my 3 favorite guys in the world!

Oh and I would really love to adopt a girl, but until that day (cause I gotta convince Jim) I will just have to continue to spoil my nieces!

The Breast Cancer 3 Day Walk is getting closer....

I have got to buckle down and get busy on my training. It's just so hard to walk that long all by your lonsome. Everyone that has talked about walking in this 3 day with me has backed out. With exception of Flo (baby boy Ferrell had a little something to do with that). If there is anyone out there reading this blog that wants to walk in the 3 day please get in touch with me. I am not going to quit, I am gonna push on for my mom!
My mother pretty much raised my twin sister, brother, and I on her own. She is a strong lady and she is proving that every day. She has been through so much lately. She is in the process of receiving a stem cell transplant at MD Anderson. She has had some difficulties arrise which has set things back a bit. Her last chemo caused her to have a mild heart attack, and they have been harvesting her stem cells, but they did not get enough. So this week they admitted her into the hospital and gave her a very strong chemo treatment to bring up her stem cell count. And starting Monday they will start harvesting again. Hopefully they will get enough this go round. Please continue to keep her in your prayers, she still has a long journey ahead of her!

Ok back to the 3-day it will be Nov 7-9 and I am soooo excited. Even though I am no where near ready I think it will be an uplifting experience! Again if anyone wants to walk please contact me.

You can click the link on the right to make donations. Also any donations would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Playing Catch Up Once Again....

I know I know I am so far behind on my blogging. These past two weeks have just been so busy. With work, back to school, baseball practice, kids programs starting back up on Wednesday nights at church, being sick, and did I mention work! There has just been no time for blogging. So as I sit at home this Saturday evening still not feeling to swell, while Jim, the boys, and 2 friends of the boys are out at the lake I have decided to get you caught up on the Green household.

A few weekends ago we headed to the lake for a bit to let the boys go tubing. After we got the boat into the water PayBo noticed some lighting on one end of the lake. So of course we still headed out but in the opposite direction of the storm that was brewing.

Jim wanted to show us a restaurant on the other side of the lake and it was in the opposite direction of the storm so we headed out. So we we continued it got darker and darker and cooler and cooler. The water starts to get a little rough, but still we continue on thinking the storm would go the other direction. Well the water got rougher, the sky got darker, and a few drops of rain came down. So at that point we decide to turn around, we will have to check out that restaurant another day. So we turned around and headed back toward dry land. OK now here I am scared out of my mind continuously praying to myself "God please calm the waters, God please let us make it back safely, God please calm the waters!!!" And the boys are sitting in the back with huge smiles on there face loving every wave we hit and every splash of water that came into the boat. And Jim sitting in the drivers seat saying "I see god's hands all over this, it's a beautiful picture." I have to agree with him it was beautiful, but I was still scared out of my mind and I was so glad to make it to dry land safely!

Also this past Monday school began for the boys. Colby started 1st grade and PayBo started 4th grade. They both love their teachers. That's a major plus for Colby, he actually says he is liking school this year. Now I know it's only been a week but that's an improvement for Colby. Now PayBo is just to old for his mommy to walk him into class, so I dropped him off at the front door. Colby on the other hand still wanted me to, so I grabbed a pic of him at his new 1st grade desk.

Our Mini Vacation....

Friday we headed to Dallas to spend the day at Hurricane Harbor

I rode some rides and the kids rode as many and Jim and his dad did. They had a blast. We rode this new ride they have there called the tornado. I though this doesn't look like a big deal so I guess I'll ride it. It was alot scarier than I though. Well I don't guess scary just a little more thrill than I was expecting. Its a four person tube that drops you down a steep hill and I mean steep well at least steep for me I grabbed my nose like I was fixing to go under water. Now know that you get splashed a little bit but you never go under water. After it drops you down the hill you go into a funnel and you go high onto the walls of the funnel, back and forth. After the first initial up the wall and losing your stomach it was not to bad after that. I enjoyed riding it but will I ride it again? Still thinking on that one!

This is not the one in Arlington but it looks exactly like this! Trust me its alot bigger than it looks in these pictures and its alot higher!

After that daring ride we let the kids play in kiddie land for a little bit.

After kiddie land we were off to the hotel to get all settled in, and change to go eat. Don't they look exhausted.

We went to Jim's favorite place to eat in Arlington and that is the Steak N' Shake. If you haven't tried it you really should. It really is a great place to eat and the cost is just like any normal fast food place. But this is 10 times better than fast food!

Once we left there we went back to the hotel for some swimming, yes I said swimming. Like they didn't get enough of the water all day long at Hurricane Harbor. We let them swim for about an hour then we headed back up to the room for some sleep...ZzzZzzzZzz! By the way I didn't sleep well at all. The beds were very nice, but the pillow was way to thick and firm for me. I like a thin pillow that my head will sink into, other wise I always wake up with a stiff neck. Also the dang hotel let some people stay out on the terrace playing their guitars and singing until well after midnight. By the way the terrace was right outside our room. That was probably the only complaint I had about the hotel. The next morning we woke up and headed out. Jim wanted to go to Dick's Sporting Goods, which is also attached to a mall there in Arlington and there was a carousel in it so Alex and Colby wanted to ride. PayBo thought he was to old for that stuff but they talked him into riding.

All in all we had a great time! And the kids said it was the best day of their lives and isn't that what we want to hear as parents.
