Christmas tournament

Basketball over Christmas.  Carter played well, the first couple of games he declared them to be the best games of his life. 
 The team made it to the finals.  A loss but in the a trophy.
And the cutest fans. (Luke with his cousin Paxton)

Harlem Globetrotters, Baltimore style

A little time to celebrate Luke.

Finally time to celebrate Luke's birthday with his friends (his bday was actually Nov 30).  We loaded up some friends and headed to Baltimore for the Harlem Globetrotters.  The show was perfect for this crew.  They loved every second of it. 
Walking in and thinking it was the biggest stadium ever (while I was thinking it was tiny).  Then getting our seats only 3 rows back.  The tricks, the dunks, the laughter, the dancing, the snacks.
Fun, fun, fun.  We were so close to the action, that we were part of the action...while talking to the ref, a Globetrotter tossed a bucket of water...getting some pretty wet!
At the end of the show, the Globetrotters hang around to meet and greet with everyone.  Lots of pictures and autographs (we got the boys Globetrotters t-shirts to sign, instead of goodie bags and back at the house gave them an old school Scooby Doo with the Globetrotters of my early Globetrotter memories).
Truly a blast for all.  The boys were in to every second of it and it was still entertaining for the adults.

Christmas Day 2013

A day filled with everything Christmas.  Family, food and fun.
The ribbons were a hot item this year.
And the dogs needed to have fun.
And a fun gift from Uncle Lee (Great- Grandpa Johnson's brother), candy and $ for the kiddos.
Singing around the piano.
 End the day with a huge dinner and yummy dessert.
