Ward Christmas 2008

Only the Ward family will understand this crazy song written by Katie and LeighAnna!

Pictures to come! My family gave me a new camera for Christmas and I'm having trouble transfering to the computer. I'll figure it out soon, hopefully! We had a blast!

12 Days of Ward Family Christmas – 2008

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me….

Amazing grandparents named John & Jean

Second….too many themed dinners
Third…three part harmony
Four…four sons-in-law
Five…5101 Cheviot
Six…6 years since Hawaii
Seven…7 more weddings
Eight…8 days of leftovers
Nine…9 things we did wrong in Charleston
Ten…10 thousand family pictures
Eleven…11 games no one wants to play
Twelve…12 Bama wins this season

Just for the record… these words were written by Leigh Anna and Katie as we all sat at Rosie’s for dinner on Monday evening, December 22, 2008. When they sang it for us, we weren’t sure of exactly what they were saying because of all the laughing. Here it is for all of us to remember…. especially the part about the amazing grandparents.

OK, Here it is - Hudson Walking!

As you can hear me on this video, tomorrow, November 13 Hudson will be one year old! And yes, if you haven't checked David and Emily's blog, the Lord will bless us with another little Gossett in May! Pray for Emily and the little one, the last few days have been tough. Emily has been sick but today she is feeling some better. "There shall be showers of blessings" - we are so blessed with David's sweet family.Sorry it is so dark - I wanted you to see his big smile as he was walking back to me!

We visited Marge, a sweet friend of Kyle's, that he met this summer at camp. This is John, Mel, Lindsay (Mel's sister) , Leigh Anna, Kyle and Marge.

USC Theatre

The opera was "The Tales of Hoffman" and Melanie was Olympia, a doll.

After the Opera - this is all her friends and family that came.

This is hilarious. This was the last play of the Bama/LSU game.
