Trimming the Tree

On Monday night we finally decorated the Christmas Tree! The kids have so much fun every year and I enjoy looking at all of our old ornaments and telling the kids about them.
Kelby had dance class that night and was excited about getting to wear her outfit!
Merry Christmas!

Sleep Over

Last week Hayden was supposed to spend the night and go to the parade with us but when he started running a fever we had to postpone our fun evening! Saturday night, Hayden got to come over and stay with us but before they left, Kelby just had to hold Parker and get a picture since they both had on their Christmas tutu's.
We finished hanging the lights outside, went to dinner at Jalapeno Tree and then laid down to watch Frosty the Snowman. I had NO idea that Frosty scared Hayden and made him so sad that he wanted to go home. The kids were so upset but understood what it was like to miss their mommy! It was a fun evening even if he didn't stay the whole night!

Getting out the Christmas Decorations

On Friday night we dug out the Chrismas decorations from the garage and got them put up in the house. The kids found their santa hats and were pretending to have a bag of toys on their shoulders! On Saturday after Abyela and Naomi's birthday party, we headed home to start putting up the exterior lights. Kelby really wanted to do our whole tree out front this year and lucky for her, I have TONS of white lights left over from our wedding!
Kelby and Hunter were such good little helpers! They loved getting on the ladder and the stool to help!
We are not completely done yet so I don't have a final picture but it will come later!

Time with Sarah

One of my great friends Sarah lives in Dallas so we don't get to see her as often as we would like. Her family all lives in Lawton and Meers so on Friday we went up to visit her. We had lunch at Chick-fil-a (yummy) and then we to her grandmas to spend some time with her family. It was so great to catch up with them.

This is like a cute Christmas card pic!
Good times!

Thanksgiving with the Deason's

After lunch with my Dad's family, we headed over to John and Laurie's for time with Eric's family. There were lots of people there but I didn't get my camera out until later in the evening - sorry guys! Kelby and Hunter found this "doodlebops" hair as they called it in the garage and we had lots of fun with it!

Moorman Thanksgiving

This year my Dad and Lisa hosted the Moorman Thanksgiving. Lots of our family that never gets to come in were there this year so I was glad that Dad had just remodeled their house to make the livingroom larger! Dad had one small "incident" in the kitchen and almost burned down the house with the turkey juice but one he got it extenguished, we were ready to chow down!
I was so excited that Kathy and Norman came this year!

Thankful for Mrs. Connie

Mrs. Connie always has a Thanksgiving luncheon at her house the week of Thanksgiving. We all bring some food and we get to hear the kids say what they are thankful for. This year the kids sang a few songs and did a little program for us.
We are so thankful for Mrs. Connie and all that she does for our children!

Francis Thanksgiving

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, we have started having an early Thanksgiving at my Mamaw and Papaw Francis house. We have lots of fun and it was a beautiful day so the kids got to play outside!
