Christmas Eve Snow!!

Making cookies for Santa! Chocolate Chip!

We woke up this morning on Christmas Eve to snow!! The kids were super excited so we got all bundled up and ready to go! I bought those pants and coat for austin when he was 2, it had snowed and so I ran up to walmart and they were the smallest I could find! He finally fits in them! Campbell is wearing her 18month snow bibs! Thinking we are going to have to get new stuff this year!

playground is more fun in the snow!

They went suprisingly fast down this tiny hill! With help from dad!

Hot chocolate to finish the adventure!

Here comes Santa Clause!!

Ann got this little wrap at the Gap and Campbell just fell in love with it! It was the perfect time to wear it!

We seriously love Santa!!

It is our tradition every year to go to breakfast with Santa at Shaw's Garden. The kids love this day and they were super excited this year. The conversation around our house this morning heavily centered around the naughty and nice list. Austin needed to know for sure if he was on the nice list or not!! Campbell had an earfull for Santa telling him all the things that she needed, but Austin kept pretty quiet only sharing one thing with him. A few minutes after talking with Santa, Austin was concerned that he would only get the one thing that he asked for so his very outgoing sister took it upon herself to return to santa and ask for other things that Austin wanted! With everything squared away with Santa we had a great breakfast and then walked through the wonderful train show they have every year.

Happy Thanksgiving

I love the week of Thanksgiving because we get to relax and have fun the whole week. We made our yearly journey down to Atlanta for Thanksgiving this year! We had a wonderful time with family and ate until our hearts were content and then some!

of course when your granddad is the organist at church you get to play it after the service!

Campbell had her first trip to the American Girl store! She fell in love with the babies!

Jason spent Thanksgiving morning burning leaves! It was a beautiful day and the kids loved playing in and then burning the leaves!

They have so many trees in their yard. John and a friend spent 5 hours raking leaves the day before we got there and 4 days later there were just as many on the ground as there was before!

Thanksgiving family pic!

Ann get the kids P.J's every year. They are always matching and the kids love it!

This is basicly what Andrew and Campbell did all day. They just wrestled each other and then would laugh about it!

The first of many....

Austin came home from school today with one less tooth in his mouth than when I sent him this morning! The tooth has been loose for a few weeks now and today his teacher at school pulled it out! I was so suprised because I checked it last night and it was loose but I did not think it was ready! Apparently his teacher pulls out alot of teeth! He told me last week that he wanted Mrs. Hale to pull out his tooth, I laughed and thought no way!

Just enjoying some Halloween candy after dinner

Nothing like a distracting sister when your trying to do your homework

Cam "helping" me make some cookies, (she is usually always naked around the house)

This weekend we had the whole family in town. The church that I grew up in was celebrating their 125th anniversary. My grandma has gone to this church since she was 3 and they honored her this weekend. All of my mom's sisters were in town and we just had a great weekend. (Doty has great pics on her blog of the weekend). My kids especially loved that their cousins got to stay with us here at the house!

Lydia, leah, campbell and Austin!
