About Us

We are a family of four and a half- Seth, Bethany, Blevin and Caleb and another little man on the way. Seth is on staff with Campus Outreach and I (Bethany) stay at home with the boys and sometimes sell Usborne books and am making some attempt to homeschool. Blevin is almost five and is the compassionate (most of the time) Transformer and super hero loving boy. Caleb is almost three and keeps me on my toes- there is never a dull moment with him around!!

Christmas Crazies!!!

I feel like I have a blog trend- just update once a month and put tons of info in!!! (this is not my goal- blogging is the one thing I tend to procrastinate over) So...Christmas and Happy New Year

After Seth being gone from Dec. 14-18th on a ski trip- he came home and then on the 19th we did the Terrell family Christmas- Our tradition is going to Waffle or Huddle house and having breakfast (boys in pjs) and talk more about why we celebrate Christmas and talk about who Saint Nicholas was and then we come home and did our advent calendar (the one I have is from desiringgod.org and I love it) and then we open presents for our family (which is not much because they get WAAAAY too much while we are on the road

Caleb's favorite toy was the dollar tree ball and Blevin got a Transformers tent

So...then we hit the road for our 13 day excursion that afternoon(19th) We stayed at Seth's parents til the 24th and as always they did way too much for us for christmas and it was fun and crazy- 5 kids + 8 adults+ freezing weather= a little cabin fever or chaos!!! Seth and Shane did not get to play much golf because it was too cold- so they were a little on edge because they are not used to being around the kids the whole time- but we did lots of fun things including taking all 5 (1 five year old, 2 four year olds, and 2 two year olds) There is no way to get a good picture of all five but we made several attemps!!

Then we went to Seth's grandmothers on the 24th and had another Christmas with his grandmother and then went to my parents!! Christmas day we had a huge breakfast and then waited on Elliott-Sarah and Collier and then ate a huge lunch and then opened presents again!! So...by Christmas day- the boys are completely overwhelmed by all their toys and things they have gotten. We got to hang out with Elliott and Sarah and then the day after Christmas my mom's whole family came over and we hung out and shot skeet!!

The boys are not allowed to have a kitchen- so they got a grill and here they are chillin with Daddy T

the three grandkids- Blevin- baby Collier and Caleb

So then on the 27th we loaded up and dropped the boys off with Seth's parents and headed to Nashville for my 12th Christmas Conference!! We had an awesome group from West Georgia and it is always great for me personally too in my walk with the Lord. We had around 50 go and I had prayed for one room of Phi Mu's to go and 5 went!!! I was so excited. The speakers were great- many late nights- one night of dancing and lots of talking and after we got home I realized that I am not 18 any more and it took several days to recover. So...after a great holiday- we are happy to be home and school started last week, so things are off to an exciting and busy start- will try to update more frequently! A little late- Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
