The boys had their 2nd basketball games last week and Scott received the Player of the Game award!! He really tried hard this game and made several rebounds. The first game he hardly touched the ball so, it was good to see that his confidence level had risen! He is really taking to basketball. Yesterday he played off and on at Mimi and Pop's house until he made it in the goal 100 times! :)
Another huge accomplishment lately is Greyson riding a big boy bike! That child truly amazes me with his determined, never give up spirit! It is quite challenging at times, but other times it is very beneficial! He has been saying he wanted a big boy bike so, Robbie put the training wheels back on the first bike Tyler and Scott had. It took Greyson only a few times of trying to pedal before he had it down pat! He is so proud of himself and feels like a big boy. This Mama is sad because he is growing up so fast! But, I'm happy for him, too! :)
We've had lots of fun Christmas activities going on from making a gingerbread house, to Tyler's church choir program (Scott was sick and couldn't participate), Scott's Author's Showcase at school, class Christmas parties at school, and lights at Saluda Shoals!
Here are some pictures from it all!!
Scott played the Old Man in their class Author's Showcase of the Gingerbread Story. He also read his gingerbread book to the whole class for the parents to guess if they were holding his gingerbread based on his book's description of what it looked like. It was cute!

Scott and Austin ended up in a picture together with Santa! My camera was acting funny so the picture isn't all that great!
Greyson did really well with Santa! He was hesitant at first but Santa was awesome at helping him feel comfortable!

Greyson started singing his famous lines of "Santa Claus is Coming to Walgreens" so everyone started laughing in this picture! :) It was cute! We don't really know where Greyson got the idea that Santa was coming to Walgreens, but he sings it all the time! :)
Buddy, the Elf, has been into some mischief again! :)
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!
Our hearts are heavy this week as we grieve over yet another school shooting. I'm trying to discern what my role is and should be in attempting to change ...
