Annie Got Stitches

So Annie was doing something she wasn't supposed to be doing, and she fell and hit her chin. It was right on the clef of her chin. Since it was in a prominent position on her face a plastic surgeon was called in. She was really brave. All in all she received 3 stitches. She also told the doctors and nurses that she was the princess, mommy's the queen, daddy's the jester, and Bryce and Cade are the knights. The staff got a kick out of it, and from that point on they all called her "Princess Annie."

AWANA Sunday

So here is Bryce, Cade, & Annie outside of Family Heritage really excited about AWANA Sunday. Bryce and Cade were in charge of stating what the Letter K stood for and for reciting the verse. They were really proud of themselves. They did extrememly well, and they sang all of their bible songs quite well. We got to stay after church for a potluck and meet a whole bunch of people. It was really quite nice.

New Addition to our Famly

So here is Buttercup and Peanut. We just got her today. She is only 4 pounds, but is still significantly larger than Peanut. Annie was very excited when she was brought to our house. Thanks to our friend Joe who made this connection for us to give her a good home. Now we are officially a family of six.

Winter Fun!

Mark was raking the leaves, and he just couldn't resist letting them jump in it. Don't you remember doing that when you were little? They loved it sooo much. Mark was great too, he didn't mind cleaning up the very huge mess they made. Of course they all "helped" pick it up. We may not have snow, but we got sunshine and leaves.

Old Friends/New Friends

Wow! Our bible study has gotten huge! What a difference a few years make. The Browns, Phillips, and Langs together again. What fun the kids had playing with their "new" friends. Good times.

Is that you Santa Claus?

Every year Santa makes an appearance at the Phillips Family Functions. This year Bryce wasn't fooled. He came over to me when Santa was passing out presents and said,"I think that's cousin Dave, but don't worry mommy I won't ruin it for the little kids." I thought that was pretty funny.

Annie's First Hair Cut

My sweet friend Amy gave Annie her first hair cut. I was taking pictures and my friend Meggan was filming it. We even saved a curl. I was afraid it wouldn't be curly after the cut, but it bounced back curlier than ever. A big thank you to Amy and magic scissors.
