Congratulations Jonny!

We are so proud of Jonny and his accomplishments as a coach. On Thursday evening Jonathan's team beat Southern Wesleyan 75-52 to give Jonathan his 100th career win. This includes wins from 3 seasons as a head coach at Lander University and the 2 1/2 seasons he's been at Berry. There was a nice article in the paper on Friday about him and also on Berry's website ( & the SSAC's website ( His assistant, Amy Krach, had a plaque made for him and gave it to him after the game Thursday (thanks Amy). His team was also recently ranked in the top 25 in the NAIA National Poll (

Most of you know about the passion that Jonathan has for the game of basketball. He loves to watch and study the game and truly enjoys his job. Coaching college basketball is demanding of his time with juggling practices, scouting, recruiting, film watching, weight work-outs, etc. I'm so glad to be able to say that his job and winning basketball games is not his first priority though. Jonathan is committed to serving God and to making time for Anna and I. He is also very concerned about the impact that he has on his player's and is continually striving to be an example to them on and off the court. We're proud of his wins, but we're even more proud of the man that he is! Congratulations Jonny; we love you!

More pictures (a few days after Christmas)!

It's amazing how fast life passes by--Anna is looking so grown up these days!

Anna and Great Grandma Henry in their matching pink outfits.

A big hug for mommy!

Christmas Day at Mamaw & Papaw's

We went to Mamaw & Papaw's for lunch on Christmas day after Anna played with her toys from Santa.
The whole Hee Haw gang!

Mamaw, Anna & Jonathan.

Rachel had a big hug for her daddy after opening her new ipod.

Christmas Eve at Mom's

We opened gifts with mom, Kevin & Abby on Christmas Eve this year so we could enjoy Santa Christmas morning and then go to the Norton's to open some more! A rare moment with Grandma Miller when Anna was still!

Anna wasn't too into opening her gifts but with some persuasion she would eventually look in the gift bags or help tear paper off of the package.

She was more interested in carrying the bags around than finding out what was in them; that will change!
Dad would be proud of his son; Kevin gets some new socks for Christmas (BORING)!!

I think everytime Abby got ready to open a package Anna would do something to get everyone's attention. Aunt Abby was very patient though!

Christmas with Dad

Dad and Marty went to Lexington for Christmas this year so we celebrated early with Kevin and Abby at our house. Unfortunately, Marty, Leslie, Mike & Jack got a stomach virus and couldn't join us. Grandpa & Granny Miller got Anna a radio flyer wagon for Christmas. I took some video of her in it but don't have pictures yet. She has lots of fun riding to see the cows down the street! Me, Anna, Dad, Abby & Kevin. Anna has milk all down her chin!

Two peas in a pod!

Picture with Santa

We took Anna to get her picture made with Santa before Christmas. As we expected she was not at all excited to see him! I bought a picture anyway; it will make for a fun memory she can laugh at later!
