Monday morning, 3:00am, it hit me. I have never been so sick in my life. We were to leave for the airport at 9:15am. Thank goodness the hotel had a doctor. He gave me a shot of something and some pills. I made it home, but I don't know how. Todd was so patient with me because I was so weak. I know everyone who saw me thought I was hung over. Sorry, no pictures of me sick but pictures of the fun part of the trip will be posted soon.

Here are just a couple of the pictures from our trip to Playa del Carmen. Yesterday we went to Xcaret where there was an underground river. We floated the crystal clear waters. It was beautiful. The first day on the beach was great. The high was 86 degrees. Ashley and Lindsey played a few games of volleyball. Todd and I read and watched the people walk by. Today we decided to stay the night in Cancun. The hotel owns other hotels and we were offered to stay there. The weather is not so hot. It is very cloudy, windy, and cooler. But we will be closer to the airport tomorrow when we get ready to leave.

Lindsey and Meagan are now official members of the Madisonville Chapter of the National Honor Society! WooHoo! They were inducted Thursday evening at 6:30. Todd and I found out about it around 2:00 that afternoon. Lindsey always waits to the last minute .

We can't forget about Angi's visit from Germany. Angi and a group of students came to Madisonville for a couple of weeks in October. Her English teacher's family lives here, so homes were provided for them to stay with Madisonville students. We really enjoyed Angi's visit. Hopefully, she'll come back to see us.
This year's Disciple Now was totally different than any other the girls have been to. The girls were pampered and treated has royalty because we are heirs of Christ crowns and all! Our home was the country of Scotland and we had an amazing group of girls. The weekend ended with a formal ceremony. The youth looked incredible and had an uplifting weekend.
In June we had Todd's closest high school friends over for a 25 year reunion. They had a great time reminiscing. Don't worry, Mary, I won't publish any of the stories! We can't wait to see them again.
I have a new niece this year! Karlee Rae was born in May. Ashley is holding her at the football game.
This year I discovered BUNCO thanks to some really great friends who invited me to be part of their group. November BUNCO was pajama themed and we had a coffee and waffle bar! It was great. Ashley was a sub that night and, of course, she went all out. She is a member of our BUNCO group now. She's hooked!

We spent Christmas Day in Kirbyville with my parents. Lee, Donna, Garrett, and Caleb were there as well. Daddy barbecued and we had a good visit and ate good food. I traveled back to my parents' house a couple of days after Christmas to be with Mama on her birthday. We shopped in Jasper and took her out to eat for her birthday. Ashley and Caleb pose together after opening their presents.
