Mary Lee has been a long time friend of our family. She invited the entire crew to come hang out for a few hours at the gym. The kids had a blast and we are planning on making it a yearly tradition. Thanks Mary Lee!!!

If you follow gymnastics, you know Mary Lee Tracy. She is surrounded by my kids, my nieces and my nephew. Mary Lee was my gymnastics coach and my sister's coach too. She coached the Women's Gymnastics Team that won the gold in 1996 for the United States. She currently is training 4 girls who are on the U.S. national team made up of 12. These girls are hoping to be in the top 6 to make the 2012 Olympic Team.
I always want to be teachable and willing to grow. I also hope my children desire that too. Anyway, most of our Christmas's in the past have been hectic and often not well pondered about the Lord's amazing gift of Jesus. This year, we really tried to change our focus and be intentional in our moments. We did the advent wreath, made art projects, read and acted out scripture in the hope of giving glory to the one who gave his life for us.
It's always hard for us to get a Christmas card picture. And I'm quite certain that many have the same problem. It's hard to make everyone look..."Perfect"...well, we aren't and it shows. I'm so thankful to know the Lord who covers our imperfections.
Halloween keeps getting more fun very year! Lizzie and Chloe loved it and Phoebe was just as excited as they were this year. We got way too much candy and enjoyed it all! We also got to visit with two of our neighborhood favorites, Miss Marilee and Mr. Pete. The girls love both of them and I'm so thankful that they love my girls.
