Once we got the tree set up we moved on to the business of decorating!

Yes - we are addicted to lights!! The more the merrier!

Here is the finished product. Our theme this year .... (wait for it!) SNOW AND ICE!

Celeste likes to help! She's a busy girl!!

Mattix Thanksgiving

With 10 grandkids and 10 adults it is a wild time when the whole crew gets together - wild but fun! Never a dull moment. Mom had a great meal ready for everyone and my siblings (and even their kids) made some yummy treats and sides for the meal.

The best part was just hanging out and mom and dad graciously watched the grandkids while the parents enjoyed a night away.

We wrapped up the weekend with a trip to our favorite tree place in glendale springs!

Celeste did not like the texture of the tree! She would just grab on to me like nobody's business.

Thanksgiving with "Mamaw"

My mother-in-law came up for Thanksgiving, and we had such a great time. Marie enjoyed extended time hanging out with Celeste (and us). Michael's Brother, sister-in-law and niece joined us Thanksgiving day and we had a great time hanging out and eating lots of course

Snow day!!!

We had a fun surprise in November with a little dusting of snow - being first time parents we woke up our daughter for a photo op. Clearly she is not seeing the significance of the event. She'll appreciate it when she's older I'm sure (YEAH RIGHT!).

Sweet Stuff!!!

Quick Post - I came a across this picture Michael snapped on a Sunday morning. Celeste is wearing a darling sweater dress from her cousin Adison and the crowning gory is the striped tights. I just want to eat her she's so cute! Anyway, had to be a proud mamma! Thanks for indulging me!
