the Christmas season is here!!!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Alabama with tons of food and some great family time. And this year, we threw in a little flag football, as well! Who knew we had such skilled athletes in the bloodline?!?!
Sam provided the centerpiece for the Thanksgiving meal!
Tony, was this the "Statue of Liberty" play?
Once we made it back home, we were ready for the Christmas decorations to shine!!! So we worked all weekend and now the house is ready for Jesus' birthday celebration and a much anticipated visit from Santa!
December 1st marked the arrival from our elf, Tweet. The kids put out graham crackers and water in hopes to lure him in; and low and behold, Tweet was on our mantle Tuesday morning! (He's journeyed into the kitchen today.) This little elf will help keep an eye on the kids and report his findings to Santa. Yay Tweet!!!!
(I just love how Lily Clare whispers when she's around the elf. She doesn't want him to hear everything she says.)
As for me, I'm off to do some Christmas shopping and start thinking about all of the Christmas treats that need to (I'm not sure that "need" is the correct word!) be baked!
Ho, ho, ho~
P.S. I have an awesome video of my mom and me performing a cheerleading stunt. I need to work on making it into a photo... more to come! Go team!
