My sweet girls on Christmas Eve! I absolutely love this picture of them. We were getting ready to leave for the children's service at my parents church. The girls did such a great job in big church and actually listened to the Christmas story and sang the Christmas carols. When they read the part of the Christmas story where their was no room for Mary and Joseph at the inn Anna cried out "OH NO."
Everything is all set up for Christmas! (Keep in mind that all these gifts were for 8 people )
Thanks Gigi and Poppie for our Doodle Pro's! Notice Uncle David and Aunt Aldi in the background. Eliza is not sure what they are doing :)
New matching outfit's from Gigi and Poppi. We were on our way to see family in Columbia, SC. the day after Christmas.The girls love their new panda outfits.
Eliza with Papa her great grand-father. She climbed right up in Papa's lap and I know that made him so happy.
The girls playing with their cousin Caleb. They had the best time playing with their friend. Anna is still talking about going back to see Caleb.
The girls showing Papa their kitties that they got for Christmas. They are obsessed with cats right now.
David, Alden, Me and Anna got in there too :) It was really great spending time with them over Christmas. We hadn't all been together sense last Christmas.
This is my mom's mom, Grandmama. My Dad's parents Marmee and Papa live right down the street from my mom's mom. We saw family at Marmee and Papa's and then headed down the street to see more family. She has a cat named Robert Redford that the girls just love :) The girls did such a great job and were really well behaved. I was really proud of them!
Happy 2nd birthday Eliza. Eliza's Birthday is December 29th and is going to be a challenge. I want it to be special for her each year, but it is a busy time to have a birthday. We celebrated her birthday at Gigi and Poppi's with balloons, cupcakes and presents. Mom and I pulled some things together and we had a nice little party.
She is so sweet!
Another sweetie enjoying her cupcake.
Elmo ipod or mp3 player ...not sure what it is supposed to be, but it plays music and she loves it.
Anna likes her gift too!
We went from Charleston, SC to Atlanta, GA to see John's brother, sister-in-law, nephew and Nanna. Sam just got back from a year long tour in Iraq and they are about to move to Ft. Hood Texas. It was a crazy trip, but it was well worth it being able to see more family. The girls had a great time playing with their cousin Charlie.
18 1/2 weeks pregnant. We find out what we are having January 9th at 9:00 pm. Really weird time, but it was the first available and I just took it. I am making myself a little crazy thinking about it. My prediction right now is another girl. I will be really shocked if it ends up being a boy. Either way we are thrilled!
