The Last of the Christmas week!

We had such a great week spending time with family and friends! We are truly blessed to have such a close family on both sides and that we all live so close. We spent Friday night at Kobe's Steakhouse then headed to Bryan's grandma's house for our cousin gift exchange.
It's fun to see Tori old enough to play with her cousins now. Tori, Emery, and Merrill playing the piano.
Me and Caden. We don't get to see some of the cousins all the time since several have moved away. Adam, Kristen, and Caden live in TX now.

We had another visit from Santa. She still wouldn't sit in his lap...just took the candy cane.

Tori ended the night dancing and watching the piano play...which she loved!

Christmas Night

We spent Christmas afternoon and night at my parent's house. We opened gifts, ate dinner, and went to look at George Jones' Christmas lights. We normally take the golf cart, but we decided to ride in the car...a little warmer!

One happy girl getting so many gifts this week!

This is the happy engaged couple. They got a print to remind them of their NY trip when they got engaged.

Just the 3 1/2 of us! Only 8 more weeks to go.

This is how I found Tori. She was watching everyone play the Wii.

Christmas Day

We woke up and opened presents at our house. Santa brought Tori some dress up clothes and a set of Princess golf clubs. She loves to play 'golf course'.

Brunch at Mimi and Pops' house.

Tori loved to be Santa and pass out presents and help everyone open them.

Tori and Jessie got matching boots for Christmas!
I have wanted one of these prints for years and I finally have one with my favorite verse...Jeremiah 29:11.

Tori is doing great with the twins. So far, she is very gentle.

Christmas Eve

Me, Bryan, and Tori started our day at Cracker Barrel then ran a few errands. We went to Mimi and Pops' house during the afternoon then had Christmas Eve dinner at Mae Mae and Paw Paw's house.

Grandma and Papaw got a tricycle for Tori for Christmas. We gave it to her a day early. She is not quite tall enough to reach the pedals.

Tori loves to 'play/watch the Wii'.

Amanda's house

Bridget and Zoe Grace came in town from AR this week. We all met over at Amanda's for lunch one day.

Merry Christmas!

We are having a great Christmas week so far...I hope everyone does the same!

Christmas sweater party

We went to a Christmas sweater party this weekend. I had to make my shirt since not many people have maternity Christmas sweaters to borrow. We had a fun time...thanks to Brent and Amanda for hosting!

Nursing Home

We went to visit Brent's grandmother in the nursing home last week. The kids passed out cards and sang Christmas carols.

Christmas Program

Tori had her first school program today. Their class rode down the aisle in wagons singing jingle bells.

Tori is sitting in the front with her friend Mary Harbin.

It was such a cute program. We will be looking forward to next year when everyone in her class is a little more involved:)

Christmas party

We had our annual Christmas party at church. Tori loved running all around, eating yummy treats, seeing Mrs. Claus, and Snow White.

Yesterday before the Christmas party we stopped by Mimmy's house. Tori managed to revert back to her baby days and snuck in the baby seat when we weren't looking.
I turned on Peter Pan the other day for her and found her wrapped up in her Cinderella sleeping bag. Thanks Emma Cate!
