The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Just catching up...

I am happy to report a rather un-eventful January at the Hatcher household. A couple of weekends ago, we got to spend some time in north Georgia visiting Brent's grandparents. There was so much ice and snow everywhere! We just stayed inside and kept warm.

Reese has really started coming around in his behavior. I almost thought, "He is actually outgrowing the terrible twos." I don't know if I can use that excuse though, since he is 4. Lately, if you just keep reminding him to be good, and keep praising him when he is good, he seems to act like an angel.

Brooks got all A's again on his report card. I didn't expect it this time, which made it all the more wonderful! He is such a people pleaser almost to a fault. It is so hard to teach a child how to be a leader, instead of a follower.

Reese came down with Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease last week, and surprise surprise....Brooks woke up with it today. Luckily they both seemed to have a mild case of it, without much discomfort. Leave it to my kids to have a strange illness.

I am excited about an upcoming trip to Savannah for Brent and I. We honeymooned there almost 12 years ago, and have wished to go back ever since. I am going to be sure and take about a million pictures!

I'm excited for your trop back to Savannah! I know it will be so fun!
And I STILL just think your boys are precious! I love to see them coming my way in church or to hear them in kids sing! :)

If you don't have anything to blog about you could always write about my strange Christmas gift.
