Getting ready for Christmas

It has been fun to watch Drew "discover" Christmas for the first time this year. He loves all of the Christmas lights, the tree, Santa, the "HoHoHo" presents under the tree, etc. Our Christmas tree has gotten quite a few night-night hugs. He even watched his first full movie this weekend - he was captivated by the Polar Express (between Choo-Choos and Santa we figured we couldn't go wrong with it). We drove through the Festival of Lights here in Winston and Drew didn't stop talking the whole time... "Look look look!!!!" and "cool lights".

Drew helps Meema find the "perfect" tree for her house Brad decorated our bushes with lights and this was Drew's first time seeing them. He loves them and every time we drive up to our house he says, "Drew's lights!". I *love* this picture that Meema snapped of Drew at her house - his expression says it all. BUSTED!

Christmas card photo shoot

Hopefully by now, Christmas cards have been received so this won't ruin anything - but just wanted to show you some "behind the scenes" shots of what it takes to get a dog and 2-year-old to take pictures together dressed in gear that they don't like wearing (the hat/antlers). Fun stuff - Brad and I enjoyed a lot of laughs throughout it! It takes a lot of bribery to get them together! Of course, we could get *one* of them to sit still for a second and look at the camera - the struggle was getting BOTH of them! These are two of my favorite pictures from the day. It's a wrap - job well done, boys.

Belated Thanksgiving post

Sorry for the delay - to say it's pretty busy around here prepping for the holidays and baby #2 is an understatement, but I do have lots of pictures to share!

We enjoyed going to Henderson on Thanksgiving then we took a trip to the beach for a long weekend. The highlight of the weekend came with the Dixie Stampede - Drew LOVED the 'horsey's and other animals and of course "HO! HO! HO!" (what he yells everytime he sees Santa). Here are some pictures from that trip:

Outdoor fun at Aunt Sistah's house: Thanks to Drew, we watched the sun rise every morning - not something that Daddy and Mommy are used to seeing at the beach, but it was beautiful. Daddy and Drew prepare for some Black Friday shopping at the outlets Just chillin at the beach - you know eating grapes and watching Dora... isn't life good? Napping - Mommy's belly makes a good pillow these days! Beep! Beep! I'm gonna schedule some more posts, so look for some updates in the next few days to catch everything up!
