Babyland General

Yesterday we made a girls only trip to Babyland General in Cleveland, GA: home of the Cabbage Patch Kids! We took my niece, who is 3, for her first visit. My Mother-in-law, Sister-in-law, niece, and girls all went with me. We had such a fun time. My niece even got to name a brand new cabbage patch baby: Lucas Xavier. (someone else named the middle name). I loved seeing my niece enthralled in the imagination of Babyland General.

Christmas 2011

We are so very blessed! This Christmas was amazing! We started at home and opened gifts then hit the road and headed to McRae. We enjoyed our day with my family AND Josh's. Hudson received an iPod touch; Kendan received a wooden train and his own phone (leap frog style). We had a wonderful day! I received an awesome iPhone 4s with a pretty pink otter box. I am a lucky girl. Josh spoils us. Merry Christmas!

The Polar Express

We took a ride on The Polar Express tonight, and it was magical! We got hot chocolate (with dancing servers) and a cookie. We listened to "The Polar Express" read aloud as we followed along in our book. We sang Christmas carols, and then Santa came by and gave each child "the first gift of Christmas": a bell. It was a very fun train ride from Bryon City, NC to the North Pole and back. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Pre-K Polar Express Trip

Friday we went to the North Pole with Hudson's class. They rode a train, where Kendan decided he was going to ride next to the Conductor. :) When they got there they could pick from lots of different activities: ornament making, cookie decorating, mixing reindeer food, and penguin bowling to name a few. Hudson had a great time! We love his teachers, and were so glad Ms. Pam came for the morning!

Christmas pictures

My amazingly talented and extraordinarily generous friend, Missy, has walked this foster parent journey with me by listening to me blab on and on about every little step in the process. She's pretty great like that. Anyway, she offered to take some pictures for us this Christmas! They are really really great pictures. She is amazing behind a lens! I love how she captures my family so perfectly! I really love the picture of Josh and me.

We are excited to share this Christmas season with our family of 6 this year. Hudson is at an age where he knows the "REAL" meaning of Christmas! He can tell you why we celebrate Christmas, and that is really important to me. Kendan can even tell you who "Bebe Jsis" (Baby Jesus) is in our nativity scene.

"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."

Merry Christmas Y'all
