Before the Christmas Eve we took Mimi and Gigi to the children's service at church. Sam reluctantly agreed to be a king and, of course, loved it by the time he was up there.
Uncle Scott and Uncle Jon were here to celebrate with us. And Mimi and Gigi came all the way from Texas to be with us!
And Aunt Laura! We've had so much fun!
Sammy and Uncle Scott watched Santa's progress. This was definitely the most excited Sam's been about Santa - so much fun! We had our traditional Mexican dinner with enchiladas, rice, beans, and tamales.

It's hard to believe that 5 years ago, almost to the hour, I was debating whether or not to wake Ryan up so we could drive to the hospital.
How rich our lives are because of you, Sam! You've taught me so much, expanded my heart, kept me laughing, frustrated me, amazed me, and helped me to grow. I'm the luckiest Mommy in the world to have you. Happy birthday, my sweet boy!

Students asked what kind of meat was in our casserole. When Ms. Jenna responded, “It’s chicken!”
Danny replied, “Chicken comes from chicken.”
Ms. Jenna asked friends, “Where does steak come from?” but after no one replied, she gave a hint, “It says Mooo.”
Rayne said, “A cow!”
Then Ms. Jenna asked, “Where does bacon come from?”
Sammy quickly replied, “A pig!”
Now how does he know that?

How do you get 4 kids to all look at the camera? Probably not going to happen.
We've been ready for Halloween since the first week of October when the SpiderMan costume arrived. Sam has worn it nearly every day since then. We did 4 houses on one culdesac, and then Sam was ready to be done, check out his loot, and "trick-or-treat the kids." I convinced him to do the other culdesac wtih the rest of our group, but after those 5 houses, he was really finished. All in all, a pretty successful night.

Friends were discussing their names. Selena said, “my second name is Xxxxx.” Sammy said, “I have 3 names, Sammy McKee Turley.” Danny said, “I only have 2 names, Danny Xxxxx.” Rayne asked, “What is my second name?” Selena said, “Rayne Xxxxx!”
We've been working on this lately since Sam was convinced that his name was Sammy Turley McKee. That drove Ryan CRAZY! But it appears that he's finally got it right.
