Christmas at Home

My  family and I have spent Christmas in Greenville, SC - where my childhood memories take place.  I have not spent Christmas with my parents in a couple of years...and have not spent Christmas at home since...well, gosh, I can't remember.  It has been so nice being with my family and I look forward to the next trip home!!!  (Not planned yet, but hope not too far off.)

This was THE toy Jack wanted most - RHINO

Christmas Cookies

I wanted to take some shots of the boys in front of the tree, post Holiday card.  What to bribe them with....what to bribe them with...?  Ah yes!  My favorite baker / Mother-in-law has supplied us with the most delicious sugar cookies EVER.  The boys had no problem sitting for their mama - cookie in hand.  :)

I love these boys.  I love it even more when they love on each other.

These guys take their cookie eating seriously.

Baby Jesus Comes to Dinner

The Holiday season is in full swing!  I have been a busy lady creating Holiday cards, and getting the boys ready for Christmas.  Here are just a couple of shots from last night...

Jack wanted Baby Jesus to sit with him at dinner.  He was so cute about it...talking to Baby Jesus and telling him how "sweet and little" he was.  This is the part about having a three year old that is fun.

One of those fun accidents that happens when Jack has control of the shutter release remote.

Ready for Christmas.

Three Years in Colorado

My family and I spent Thanksgiving in Colorado Springs, CO with my husband's family.  It was nice to get away, enjoy home-cooked food, and be with so many family members at once.

While we were there, we had a third birthday party for my son Jack, and a belated first celebration for my little guy Ryan.

Here are some of my favorites from the party.

1 and 3.

Our little friend Holden came with his Mommy and Daddy to the party.

Ryan enjoying his cake.

Grandma and Grandpa have a toddler sized golf cart that Jack loves to drive around in.  Ryan likes to swing the clubs.
