Santa Time

A little over a week ago, we got a chance to have our Breakfast with Santa.  It was good to see a lot of friends and their kids coming to take pictures with Santa.  You forget how many kids everyone has until they are all in the same room together.... and it is a little nice... and a little scary when you finally do see it.

 The breakfast was provided by Waffle House... Oh yes... and it was syrup-licious!!  And in our rare photo with Santa, all eyes where open.  Another bonus!  smiley

Sleeping Over

Megan recently had her birthday party [Nov 24 th was her B-Day] and had a bunch of her friends stay for a sleepover.  I was all about painting nails, watching movies, playing games, and eating pizza.  But even though they did a lot of things... I don't think they got a lot of sleeping in.

Megan's BDay Sleepover

There was way too much giggling...and to be honest I was a bit scared and hid in my room.... every now and then I would listen to see if it was safe to leave my room, but I was trapped almost until lunch the next day.   Well at least Megan loved her birthday party.

Making a Plastic Tree

Some people like to put up their Christmas Decorations early... Way Early.  I am not sure where the find the time.  We were lucky to even start talking about it after Turkey Day.  ... but the time did come to bring out all the Christmas boxes. Including old faithful. The tree that is older than my kids (It might be time to get a new one).

Time for the Tree

And here are the volunteers.  Ready to get the decorations under way.  We added everything around the house and some lights in front.  And at the end the sun had gone down and we sat around the fireplace with some hot chocolate and talked about some Christmases Past.
