Disney on Ice...

Saturday morning all our company left, but the fun wasn't over just yet. Ebby Lee and I had tickets to Disney on Ice. I thought Nixon would be a little too young for it this year. (After the show, I was SO thankful we didn't get us all tickets. Ebby Lee got a little restless so I know he couldn't have handled it.) Ready to go to the 3:30 show! So excited...can you tell? :)
She wore her Minnie shirt. The show was SO cute. It had The Lion King, The Little Mermaid (2 of her favorites), Lilo & Stitch, and Peter Pan.

Such a fun mommy/daughter date!! We decided we'd let the boys join us next year!

Thanksgiving Festivities...

Boo & T-Nonnie came to town for Thanksgiving. We started out the fun by meeting Daddy after work at the mall for a yummy dinner at The Cheesecake Factory.


Then...it was off to ride the carousel. Boo looks like he's not enjoying this, but he does!

T-Nonnie showed Ebby Lee how to play some games on the computer.

On Wednesday, Camden arrived! (With Uncle Jared & Aunt Kelly)


What were we to do? Go back to the mall, of course!...we did a little shopping.



We watched the ice skaters.

And...rode the carousel AGAIN!



Thanksgiving...

Ebby Lee was enjoying a little pre-Thanksgiving meal goldfish snack.

Kiddie Table...Ebby Lee and CamdenNixon-Man


All snuggled up watching Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving.


Not Pictured: Our Black Friday shopping adventures...there was NO time for pictures. T-Nonnie & Tab babysat while everyone else shopped. Let's just say that Santa MIGHT have gotten her little hands on a trampoline!! We had a blast!! Before heading out, I had almost talked myself out of going. Once I saw the crazy crowds, I was hooked and stayed out until 1:30!

The Huffman Family...after some much needed naps, we headed out to go to Hard Eights BBQ for dinner.

Somebody liked their mac & cheese! Can you tell?



Boo & the grandkids


After dinner, a stop at the Gaylord...

I think it's so fun to look at all the Christmas decorations and the kids all wearing their Christmas clothes! Puts me in the Christmas mood for sure!



Girl Pic

Boy Pic...Nixon had SO many things to look at. He could NOT stop for a picture.

Ebby Lee and Camden checking out the wishing well.



I have no idea what everyone else was doing, but Nixon and I played peek-a-boo for a few minutes and I took the cutest pics of him.

Showing off those big teeth...ha!











Nixon was not a fan.

Checking out the trains.

Took this picture for 2 reasons...Nixon is growing up and getting so big! And...that kid in his pajamas? Thought he was pretty old to be wearing one-piece pajamas, but one-piece pajamas out in public? I felt bad for him! ha!

I took 5 of these. 5. And this was the best one!

There was a band playing and this girl was feeling the beat!

This cute little family will be adding Baby #2 this summer. So excited for them!! Can't wait to find out if it's a boy/girl!

We have so much to be thankful for. We had a fabulous week with our family. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Teddy Bear Picnic Party & Thanksgiving Feast...

We celebrated Presley's 2nd birthday at a "Teddy Bear Picnic Party". Ms. Narci had everything decorated SO well. It was super cute. The kids were supposed to bring a favorite stuffed animal. She had each one brush their teeth, comb their hair, etc. Here's Nixon brushing his puppy's teeth.
Ebby Lee was brushing her puppy's teeth. Let me just add that we are having some hair issues at our house. I usually put a little ponytail in to hold in her bows. Believe me with that small amount of hair, we NEED those bows. This week I noticed that Ebby Lee has little to NO hair where I put those ponytails!! YIKES! So...I'm trying to use more headbands and just bows until HOPEFULLY it grows back?? If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Anyway, the party was adorable...

They played a cute little game and dug for teddy bears in the picnic basket. Check out Miss Thing waiting her turn!

After brushing his puppy's teeth, Nixon crawled in his stroller. I guess he thought he'd had enough girly stuff for the day! ha! Don't worry when they brought out the food that boy was OUT of that stroller immediately.

Cute little picnic lunches...with friends Mason & Finn

And...a little lovin' for the birthday girl. Sweet Miss Presley turned 2! Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!


Thursday was Ebby Lee's Thanksgiving Feast at school. Tab would have gone to this, but he was out of town ALL week. So, I snuck over to Ebby Lee's class for a few minutes.


Ebby Lee's table...sweet friend, Aiden is to her left. I had told her that I was coming, so that I could prepare her for me not being able to stay the whole time and having to leave her there...Anyway, when I got there she was SO surprised and said, "Mama, is it my birthday?". Ha ha!



They sang a cute little Pilgrim song and then feasted on pizza and grapes. Yum!

So thankful for this little turkey!!
