AnnMarie's 60th Birthday!!

For Ms. AnnMarie's 60th Birthday, she wanted all of her grown-up children and their spouses to go to a nice Dinner on the town! What she didn't know was that Mr. Bill was planning some surprises of his own...


We got WAY too excited about this! So much fun!!

Champagne for everyone!! Cheers!!!

Our Beautiful Birthday Girl!!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Christmas Festivities 2017

Holiday Market with our Crazy Crew!! So much fun going all together!!

Every year after Christmas, Rich buys more clearance Christmas Lights to add to our display! This years addition, were these Blue lights all over the bushes! The kids loved it, and everyone wanted to play in the "boo lights" every night!

Blakely at her Christmas Concert!

Super proud of this little cutie!!

We usually celebrate Monk Family Christmas on New Years, but this year we had a trip to Disney planned... so we got to celebrate before Christmas this year! Turned out great, and we got to go to the Lights Before Christmas at the Zoo!!

Katy Ellis Just loved Baby Harrison!

12 Days of Christmas Magic! Thank you GG and PopPop!!

Baking with Grandmom!

Because we planned to spend New Years in Epcot, I had my mom make our Christmas Shirts- Disney Christmas Shirts!!

Decorating the Christmas Tree in our "classy" jammies!

Family Tradition: Turning on the Christmas Lights and then dancing in the glow in our jammies!

This year Christmas wrapping took FOREVER!!!! But we made some sweet memories- the girls wanted to help me wrap everything! Blakely was in charge of cutting and labeling; Katy Ellis was in charge of the tape. They loved being Mommy's Little Helpers!!

Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving 2017

EVERYONE planned to be out of town this Thanksgiving, so I thought me, Rich and the girls would be on our own... but then at the last minute mom and dad's plans fell through! It couldn't have been more perfect if I tried. This was just the best Thanksgiving ever! Relaxing, fun and above all DELCIOUS!!!

Started our day off right with the Turkey Trot 5 miler!!

The girls packed their purses full of little toys to play with during the ride!

Then we headed over to GG and PopPop's! I helped mom put together a delicious meal, and then we enjoyed a big walk as a family! Just a perfect day!
