Grandma and Grandpa sent money but Kaylin was very specific
she wanted Grandpa to get her
Barbie Diamond Castle for Christmas sooo.......

I wonder if she likes it?

Princess Leona

Princess Alexa
We had to get both dolls since they are both in the movie

Tod and Tanner got cool gift cards but I didnt
find it necessary to take pics lol

I think she likes her Cinderella Barbie!

Kaylin had to put on her Cinderella dress to match her barbie,
and then see if Cinderella's slipper will fit Apple Dumpling

Child Labor

The pictures for this post may be found here
Just so you all know Tanner CAN actually help clean around the house! For some reason he thinks it is best for people to not know but now we have proof!!!!!!!!!! Laundry folding and VACUUMING!
Thanks Shannon!

Sherrill Family photo shoot

It has been a while since I took pictures of a family
other than my own.
I have missed it.
Anyway I was excited about how the pictures
turned out so I had to post!

The whole family

Karen and Shannon

The girls





Thanksgiving with the Sherrills

The table is set.
Karen made it pretty!

Turkey cookies!

All the kids ready to eat,
some a little more ready and gone insane from the hunger lol

Kaitlyn in her favorite shirt and that
weird insane kid behind her

OOPS! I guess this is not her favorite shirt anymore!
This is what happens when you put something too close to a hamster cage.
Sorry again Kaitlyn!

What do kids do with spare time on their hands?
Play video games!
Amy at the computer
Kaitlyn advising Tanner on the best way to play Pocket Tanks

More Pocket Tank playing
Kaitlyn, Kristin, Tanner, and Savana

The labs actually being still for a moment!
Molly and Sidney

Kaylin and poor sweet Charlie (must be said with Brittish accent LOL)
Charlie is such a sweet dog, a little too round to be a hot dog
so Tanner decided to call him Sausage.
Everyone loves Charlie including Kaylin,
by the look on his face I dont know if he feels the same about her.

Child of the 80's part 2

Cheri's pictures.
Ok I figured since Karen
didnt like my little comment about her 80's hair
I thought I would be fair and post my own 80's pics.
By the way Karen you have no idea how much I had to dig to find these oldies!

You know you were a child of the 80's when..........

you had a metal swing set in your back yard
that when you swung too high on the swing it almost tipped over
because no one thought to make sure it was stable.

You had an ET shirt or some kind of ET covered something

you had to hope that someone in your family could get a Cabbage Patch doll for you
because they were so hard to find.
You may have even settled for a fake until you could get a real one.

And who could possible forget
Strawberry Shortcake!!

if you ever had a stone washed denim jacket

Side pony tails, big bows, and big glasses!
Everything as big as possible!

Flouresecent clothes!!!

ok I just had to throw this one in :)
This is Tod and I.
His favorite picture of us when we were dating.

For Jillian

Some of you may know I love my yahoo groups :-D
I have met and made friends from all over the world just by
sitting at my desk reading email.
One of those sweet sisters has started
Chemo treatments for
Non Hodgkins lymphoma.
I made this desktop for her but I wanted to share it with
anyone else who wants it.
The lime green ribbon is the support ribbon for
her cause.
Please if you would like to use this desktop
as a reminder to keep her in your prayers
I know she would appreciate it.
Thank you.

You should be able to click on the image to get the correct size
to use as a desktop.

You know you grew up in the 80's when.......

I recently scanned a bunch of old pictures for Tod and I have
been meaning to do this post for a while now, so here goes......

You know you grew up in the 80s when......

you wore tube socks with your short shorts.

your dad wore black dress socks with his short shorts.

you practiced your totally awesome break dancing moves in the driveway.

while wearing parachute pants!

you were Yoda (or any other star wars character for that matter)
for halloween.

I know I have more pictures, ok some of mine lol
I will try to get those posted one of these days
right now I am just humiliating Tod and Tim!
Love you guys!
