It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...!

Thanksgiving is over, so Christmas time is officially upon us. I love this time of year! We took Hudson to see Santa today! We have taken him to Phipps every year since he was born, and this year will be the most memorable for me! He was not scared a bit, but wanted to walk up to him all by himself! He made a wish list that had a green Hot Wheels bike and a "stritchen set" (construction set) on it. That was it. He's had the same two things on his list for months now!

The beautiful set up for pictures!

Happy boy and Santa!

Going over his wish list.

Santa is laughing here because Hudson told him, "if you can't build the Hot Wheels bike in your workshop, you can just go to Wal-mart!"

Hugs for Santa!

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is something we love to do. Hudson packs a box every year for a child in need. I let him pick out what he wants to go in the box at the store, and then he packs it at home. We drop them off at church, and Samaritan's Purse delivers them all over the world. It's such an easy way to make an impact in the life of a child. Here are the pictures of Hudson packing his box for a boy ages 2-4. We put in it some crayons, a coloring book, 2 puzzles, a toothbrush, toothpaste, a football, a yo-yo, some candy, and an assortment of other small toys. Last year we bought a plastic tub for the box, and I think I will do that again next year as we could not fit as much stuff in this shoe box this year. Next year we'll be packing 2 boxes though! :-)

All Done!

Our baby boy has a name!

So, I tried to make this really cute and paste a wordle in here to show you all our 2nd baby's name; however, I'm too tired tonight to be savvy and figure it out where it shows up well. :-) So, without further adieu, here's the name of baby #2!

Late...I know. :)

I was so glad we got to go Trick or Treating at the Avenue so Hudson could wear his sushi costume, because Pumpkinfest at church was rained out on Halloween. These pictures are from the Friday before Halloween at school. I didn't want to mess up his sushi costume at school, so he went as a UGA football player. He's so cute. I went as Humpty Dumpty, and my students LOVED it! We spent a few weeks on nursery rhymes earlier in the month so they were really excited about my (or Kendan's, I should say) costume.

November 6th 'Pa & 'Ma drove up to Hudson's school to let the children have "Farm Day." It was a HUGE hit! The kids LOVED it, and Hudson is so blessed to have such wonderful grandparents! They made the trip up to the YMCA with 3 pigs, 3 lambs, 2 chickens, 1 calf, and 1 horse! They also brought cotton, soybeans, and corn. The kids really got a good idea of what kind of things farmers grow and raise! The calf is an orphan that is being bottle fed, so some of the kids got to feed the calf. THANKS 'Pa & 'Ma!!!!!
