Christmas Eve

The Night Before ChristmasWe love Christmas pjs. The boys have been wearing them all of December.

You may be wondering what's up with the spoons. Tim and the boys wanted me to open a gift early. My sweet husband got me some spoons to use in the kitchen.

Earlier today, my brother came over with his son, Drew, to eat lunch and exchange gifts. His whole family was going to come, but Will is sick. Kimberly stayed home with him so he could rest. It just wasn't the same without Will.

Wesley and Drew
This will be our first Christmas with the boys to wake up in our home on Christmas morning. Graham is to the age now where he's really excited and can understand what Christmas is all about. It's been fun this year starting our own traditions and celebrating Jesus' birth with our children. We are also looking forward to traveling to visit Tim's mom and sister and family in Texas.

We wish all of you a merry Christmas!

Our Saturday Morning

After our favorite Saturday morning tradition of breakfast at Meridee's, we stopped at the Factory to walk around and look at the decorations. The boys had lots of fun running around the empty halls and exploring the decor.

TN Christmas Trees

We spent Sunday afternoon at a Christmas tree farm with our friends in search of the perfect tree. Well, actually we just wanted to go on the hayride and drink hot chocolate. The trees that grow in our area aren't the best for hanging ornaments on so we decided to buy a precut tree that the farm provided. I think the kids thought it was a fun experience even though the daddies didn't get to use the saw.
