Merry Christmas and Happy 2011!!

Well, I thought I ought to get one last blog in before 2011, so there's nothing like waiting until the last minute! We had a wonderful Christmas with Bree and Hunter at home, as well as my mom and Wayne visiting for a few days. We have so much to be thankful for! My mom made Hunter this t-shirt quilt from all his old soccer and high school shirts. I think he loves it :)

Here's the crazy Stewart kids together again! (notice Rich's head looks like an alien coming out of Hunter's stomach)

We ate WAY too much, but you can never have enough popcorn.

Wayne got us all these punch balloons and we had tons of fun with them. I think they might be a new tradition. Speaking of traditions, if you want to see this year's run through the wrapping paper, check out Hunter's blog (to the right). He also has a sweet video of us all freaking out with our punch balloons. We are always so amused by the simplest of things :)

Soccer Time!

Well, it has been 7 months since anyone around here has played soccer (this doesn't include Hunter at BYU) and High School soccer is now in full swing. Savannah plays on JV and Varsity for Comeaux High. She had a tournament near New Orleans this weekend and played FIVE games in one day!! (3 JV and 2 Varsity) The really cool thing is that she scored the winning (and ONLY) goal against the first team that Varsity played. I guess she hasn't lost her touch :) Her JV team played all varsity teams from other schools and didn't win any games, but her Varsity team won two and tied one. By the time this tournament was over, she had bruises, scrapes and very sore muscles. We are proud of our tough little girl!

Height disadvantage ?!!

What are you thankful for?

There really is SO much to be thankful for and the blessings were really overflowing this Thanksgiving! I didn't think we'd spend it in Destin this year and I didn't think we'd spend it with Hunter and Bree, but one morning I couldn't stand the thought of missing out on both these things and the kids flew home and we were off to Florida once again! This sunset is crazy beautiful and just reminds me to be thankful.

We took some family pics on the beach and this was one of my personal faves.

Another personal favorite :)

The weather was so incredible this year that we didn't have our Thanksgiving dinner until it was dark. I'm always thankful for the food, too!

More Destin Pics

Hunter got to see his buddy Clayton while we were there.

This is what we ate for lunch on Thanksgiving because it was WAY too nice outside to be indoors cooking! (I don't recommend Whataburger, but it was the ONLY place open)

Sav got a haircut! I think Bree should open a Salon on the beach :)

My girls duped me yet again to go shopping on Black Friday- it's fun to spend time with them, though!

This storm rolled in one afternoon- a view from our balcony.
