Christmas with the Singletary's

When I think of words to describe Cooper's first Christmas, I think of a sermon that my sister-in-law, annie, told me about. The preacher commented on how Christmas could have been for others...and he said, "Some people may be thinking 'What was that'??"

We had built up those memories to be just perfect, and I must say that it was somewhat of a letdown. Kirk had two separate viruses and an abcessed tooth that kept him from getting any sleep for one whole week, and then we all had the stomach bug with one bathroom available. But, Cooper did not get the bug and so that was a miracle!! I hate to sound so negative, but I am being honest, and that is my rule for myself when it comes to blogging. Anyhoo, I am sharing some of our best memories below. Eddlemans, I promise that the pics from our Christmas are coming soon..we are having technical difficulties. The Eddleman Christmas was much less sickly and a great time!

We went to see the gingerbread houses at the Grove Park Inn...Will almost stole a gum ball off of one of the houses...hilarious!

Our nephew Will has an amazing talent with the harmonica...art is definitely in his genes and I think he may be a musician

Cooper loves to swing..check out those beautiful mountains. We love Black Mountain so much!

Cooper loved riding in Will's backpack..we are working on getting one of those.

Annie and I- We were very surprised...see below

because Santa (aka my crazy husband, Kirk) showed up on Christmas Eve! He also went to several other houses and he was a real hit according to many of the kids around Black Mountain.

Cooper's favorite gifts were ribbons and wrapping paper...he's a cheap kid!

The boys (and my mom) kept the babies so annie and I could have a day of shopping and lunch. We love to shop together and buy the same article of clothing much of the time!!
