The Gang

Holiday Memories

In December, my friends Jennifer and Bonnie brought their little ones over for a small gift exchange and evening playdate.  This Christmas gathering has become somewhat of a tradition, as this marks the 3rd year in a row. 

Deck the Halls

Milk and Cookies with Santa!

Brady and his buddy Hunter both waiting for Santa's grand entrance!

It was nice to find a familiar face to sit with!  Lauren, Hunter and Holten generously welcomed us to their table.

Nice Brady!

Brady wrote his letter to Santa right away!  I told him we would send it to him at the north pole, when he quickly reminded me that sending it via mail makes no sense when he is right here in the building.  Duh MOM!

Bailey did so much better with Santa this year.  Last year she was terrified! 

Pumpkin Picking Playdate

We took our Lil' Pumpkins to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin to paint.

My pick of the crop - Miss Bailey

Why is it that the girls are more interested in playing in the rocks?

Payton is quite the artist!

Jenny and Stephanie painted the initial pumpkins, while I painted the smaller pumpkin to resemble a candy corn.

Fright Night!

This year we took the kids to the Waco Tennis and Fitness center for their annual Halloween party.   Last year Brady randomly won 2nd place in the Halloween costume contest, which I had no idea was even taking place at the time.  This year I was informed of the contest, however, had NO intensions of my children winning.  Lo and behold, Bailey won the grand prize for the 2011 costume contest!   One might think that my kids were the only ones there, but there were at least 40 others dressed up! Unbelievable!

Happy Birthday to my Dear AUNT Lynn!

My aunt celebrated her 50th Birthday a few weeks ago.  We had the honor of attending her surprise party down in Del Rio, Texas.  

 Happy Birthday Lynn!
