Cook Family Christmas

This past weekend was a difficult. My heart has been so heavy for
the families in Connecticut. I know those babies are with Jesus but as a mom I couldn't
imagine going through something like that. As a teacher, I also had so many mixed emotions.
I become offended when people blame schools for not having enough security but yet, 
I also feel pride when I hear how those teachers gave their lives for their students.
As a special education teacher, I am so familiar with those students who are "socially awkward" 
and have those severe behaviors and I wonder if I have done enough for them.

This weekend has also been difficult for the girls. This picture
pretty much sums our entire weekend. Both girls have been or are still sick and they have 
been miserable. No one has slept or been happy or eaten.
Wow...really that is all there is to say.

This weekend we went to my parents house to have the Cook Family Christmas.
That is my dad and his brothers and their families.
We had to take golf cart rides around the golf course to
get the girls out of the house and distracted. They are happiest outside!


This is Barrett, my sister's soon to be fiance!
Hadley loves him! He is such a great guy! He is so good with the girls!


Getting the Christmas party started. The only pictures of the girls together in their cute outfits.


Lots of cousins opening presents. Hadley kept asking,"What else is for me?"
She was too cute, but we might need to work more on giving to others who are 
less unfortunate.



Here's my little Hollins after she lost her dinner. Bless...




The girls got more babies, more strollers, and more baby doll accessories. 
We don't have quite enough in our home!
