Christmas Fun

Making cookies for Santa

and sneaking a few bites in the process.

Christmas Eve

My brothers girlfriend made everyone in the family either a hat or a sweet is that?

Matching Christmas PJs.

Christmas morning.

Santa was very good to us.

Christmas Day

We had a wonderful Christmas. We spent over a week in Prattville and with family and came back with more stuff than we have room for. I went to Huntsville earlier this week to find a tiny apartment to stuff our family into. It should be interesting but thankfully we will not be living apart anymore. We move next week. We are very thankful that 2009 was a year full of blessings. Now onto a new year and a new town. Happy New Year!

Best Friends

Best friends......Play dress up,

See their first movie together,

Hold hands when they walk,

And love, love, love each other.
This is Mary Selwyn and her best friend Owen. I have mentioned her before. Mary Selwyn talks about Owen, sometimes called "Co," all the time. She gets excited to go to church or school because Owen will be there and always wants Owen to come over. She is going to miss Owen so much and this is only one of the reasons the tears begin to flow when I think about moving. Owen's mommy is one of my best friends too and I am going to miss her just as much. These girls are very sweet best friends. We mommies will make sure they stay friends forever. We have enjoyed spending this last year and half making special memories.

Trimming the Tree

This past weekend our house was filled with illness. Both of the girls had been fighting colds for a week. Adeline started with an ear infection and Saturday morning Mary Selwyn woke up with double ear infections. The whole family was up all night Friday night. It was no fun and now I have this awful cold. So after a Saturday morning trip to the doctor we came home and put on our Christmas pajamas and stayed in them for the next two days. What better to lift our spirits than decorating our Christmas tree. We normally do a huge real tree and a small fake one but this year, with trying to sell the house, we decided to just go with the smaller fake one. I was disappointed but Mary Selwyn would have been excited decorating a plant so I guess it doesn't really matter. Now we are all in the Christmas spirit and hopefully on the mend.

Decorating the tree made us all feel much better......

I think Mary Selwyn touched every single ornament

Little sister doing her part

This picture is dark, I know but it cracks me up. The looks on their faces is like, "really mom?"

Ready for some presents under there!
