We have had a great Christmas so far!! A special guest showed up at church last night!!! It was Santa!! He took a short break just to stop by the church!! We came home and sprinkled reindeer food in the front yard and placed cookies and milk out for Santa. We read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and the Christmas story from the Book of Luke and headed off to bed to dream of Sugar Plum Fairies. Santa was awesome to us all, especially Emaline!! She got everything she asked for plus some other fun goodies!! It looks like we will be playing Wii most of the day today!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!:)

We are getting ready!! How about you? Today we had to do our baking. Emaline is always such a HUGE help!!!! We baked a birthday cake for Jesus and cookies for Santa. Santa told us how much he likes chocolate chip cookies, so we frosted some for him. We hope that all of you have a Christmas just as wonderful as ours!!!

We had a great Thanksgiving at Grandaddy's house!!! Emaline did all her favorite things while we were there!! She went fishing a couple of times, wore out Daddy and Grandaddy with the tree swing, and learned how to shoot. The shooting is a new favorite activity, but she loved it!!! It seems so odd to see a little girl with a pink marabou bow shooting a gun!! These pictures really do sum up our girl though!!! Grandaddy says she will be the pretty ballerina driving a race car one day. He could be right!!!:)

We are so lucky!! Since Santa goes to our church, we get to see him all the time!! We got a special opportunity to take our wish list and get pictures with him last week. The pictures turned out great!! We will miss him during his busy season!! He has a lot of work to do, so we won't see him much until after the big day!! Thanks Santa for taking the time to see us, and thanks Mr. Ben for the great pictures!!

My sister, Wendy, brought her two grandsons, Hunter and Austin, to trick or treat with us in Georgia. We talked so much about how much fun we had last year that they thought they might join us!! We had a blast playing with them. They are one year apart in age, and Emaline falls right between them. Here are some cute pictures of them!!

Emaline's class went on a field trip today to Hargis Retreat Center. It is a YMCA camp. The children road on a hayride, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, listened to a story in a tepee, visited a petting zoo, and chose a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch. They had a great time!!

Emaline went to her first Bama game today!! She had a great time!! She got to walk around campus and see all the highlights. She even got to walk around the Gamma Phi house (future legacy!!!). The game was awesome!! We were certainly holding our breath at the end!! Of course they had to win her first live game!!! Thanks to Tiffen and Cody!!! ROLL TIDE!!!:)

Today was Hat Day at Emaline's school. She was finally able to talk me into the pink sequin hat. I must admit that she is really cute in it!! We have been so busy since school started!! She has dance for an hour and 45 minutes each week this year. Add that to baton, choir, and AWANA, and we are booked pretty solid. It is easier that I am not teaching this year. I am substituting and working part-time for our church, however. I will try to add some dance and baton pictures soon!:)

We must have lots of glitter, sparkles, green nail polish, and Skecher high tops!! She insisted on riding the school bus also!! We met her teacher on Tuesday!! She is really sweet!! We plan to have a GREAT year!!!!!:)

We are having a great time at Grandaddy's house!! Today, we went fishing!! Emaline has been wanting to go fishing for a long time. Grandaddy's neighbor, Mr. Kelley, has a beautiful (and well-stocked) fishing pond!! We had a great time!! As you can see, Emaline caught several fish today!! She had a hard time pulling one in!! Right before she got him reeled in, the line broke!! The big one got away. . .again!!:)
