Well, we survived yet another Christmas. I believe our house "threw up" Toys R Us in it. Between Santa, Us, and Family I can say that the girls had a HUGE Christmas. Santa brought a pop up tent with Disney Princesses on it (let me tell you this tent comes up to Jason's chin, he also brought a shopping cart and an easel/chalkboard combo. As Santa was getting ready to leave he must have got caught in our fireplace because some of his suit was stuck to our fireplace (pictures will soon be posted so you can see). Jason and I got the girls just about everything else that you could imagine: books, nail polish, WebKins, playdough, Globe for Kerigan, movies, CD for Liv, and the list is so long I can't even remember. Mimi and Papa got them each an interactive doll that came with a bed, stroller, and highchair, clothes, character pillows (lightening McQueen for Liv and Tinkerbell for Kerigan). Morgan got ALOT of noisy toys but that okay she having a blast. My mom got them two XBOX 360 controllers with three games and snowglobes and a movie. Morgan got a tricycle and shoes (much needed). Other Family gifts consisted of oh my I can't even remember. But you get my drift it was a BIG Christmas at the OKelley house.
In other news, Kerigan made the Target program at school. For those of you not familiar with this program it is a full day out of the classroom with kids that think like she does. In other words, the gifted program, she obviously gets that from her dad because I surely don't have the brains sfor the gifted program.
The girls and I all return to school on January 8th, I am looking forward to continuing on towards my degree and the girls need the consistency of school already. Also on January 8th, Jason and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary man that seems strange that we have been married for 8 yrs.
Please remember our dear friends Zach and Lisa in your prayers. Lisa is 33 weeks pregnant and is on complete bed rest. She is due on February 12th but at this point the doctors are just trying to get little man to stay in until at least January 15th.
We pray that each of you has a great rest of 2007 and a blessed beginning to 2008. We will update in 08. (Hey I made a rhyme).

So where has the time gone? It is unbelievable that Christmas is only 10 days away. The OK Fab Five has been very busy the last 11 days so let me update you. Jason and I were involved in our Christmas Program at church so up until last Sunday evening we were practically living up at our church. Now, Jason is involved as the keyboardist at the Christmas Play for Kennesaw First Baptist this weekend. This past Monday we surprised the girls with checking them out of school early and taking them to Cheesecake Factory and a visit with Santa. Also, on Monday we had our dear friends Zach and Lisa and Eddie, Molly and Eli all over for dinner which was alot of fun. On Tuesday, Morgan was diagnosed with a sinus infection so you can imagine how grumpy an 18 month old with a sinus infection can be. Then on Wednesday, Kerigan was diagnosed with bronchitis so she was out of school on Thursday and Friday. We have been trying to get everybody well so that we can try to enjoy our last week before the holidays truly get into full force. I want to thank you all for your prayers of my friend, Angela as she had surgery on the 7th and came through it well and is slowly recuperating. So until next time the OK Fab Five is signing off.

Ok, so back in August I said that I was going to do alot better with this. Now look 2 more months have passed by and I am SO far behind. I am going to try this differently this go around with a little encourgement from a friend in Tampa. I have decided to see how this goes. Over the last couple of months we have been extremely busy--Jason and I have grown in our marriage after a difficult couple of weeks in October but we learned that we can just about weather any storm that we are put in with the help of God, friends, and family. It was truly a growing process for me and a HUGE learning lesson also. I will not elaborate any further...but I would appreciate any prayers anyone could still send our way. The girls have grown so much. Kerigan has been testing for the Target program and is loving it. She claims the testing is extremely easy so we will see what they tell us once it is all over. Liv, well, what can I say? She is my little mess. Her teacher says she is extremely bright too and I don't mean to brag but since I not even close to being bright they must get it from their Dad's side and for that I am greatful. Morgan is into EVERYTHING. We recently had to put locks on our cabinets which I NEVER had to do with the others so you can tell she keeps us hopping. I am wrapping up my first semester back at school full time and starting January 8th I will be taking 4 classes so we will be studying ALOT at the O'Kelley household. Since my last post, our dear friends Zach and Lisa (their picture is on the right side) found out they are expecting a baby boy and tonight she told me that they plan to name him Zachary Christopher. I told her I was stuck on little big man if she didn't mind. I am so excited for them. Please keep me in your prayers as I have an econ final on Tuesday and need to do well. I am going to try a few different things to keep this more current so please bear with me. I plan to post new pictures soon so keep watching. We are in the Church christmas program this week so it will be busy at our house once again this weekend. Also, before I let you go one of my dearest friends and blog readers is having surgery on Friday and could use as many prayers as we can possibly give her, please remember Angela and I will send an update when I hear how she is. For tonight I am signing off.
