On Friday morning, we headed out to the mall in Huntsville to see Santa arrive for the holiday season on a fire truck.....



Then we followed him into the mall and listened to him read the classic, The Night Before Christmas. Then he passed out candy canes, cookies, and punch for all the kids. My mom called and told me today that we made the front page of the Huntsville newspaper.....who knew we would be famous by going and visiting Santa at the mall???



Next, we went back to Mawmaw and Papaw's house for a "photo shoot". The kids tried on their new Christmas outfits and had fun posing in front of Mawmaw's tree.....here are some of my favorite shots......we got several good ones to make a really cute Christmas card this year.






Oh, I almost forgot to post this hilarious video of some of my cousins trying to do some tricks on their old scooters........this was our after dinner Thanksgiving entertainment!

Thanksgiving Feast 2009

Today at school the girl's had their Thanksgiving Feast with their class. Before the feast, they did two little presentations with another 1st grade class to share what they have learned about Pilgrims and Indians. They were so cute!

Here's Lauren getting to read her part......she was not feeling well today so I was proud of her for participating with her class and hanging in there.




Here's Leah ready and in position for her part.......



Leah was so proud of herself after she read her part.....you can tell by the look on her face. She used to be terrified of getting up in front of people, but I have noticed she is becoming more comfortable with it........she has really come a long way.

Logan was there to supervise all the Thanksgiving festivities of course!
Check out this super cool turkey that one of the moms made for the girl's class......they kids loved it and it was fun to eat too!

Here they all are.....ready to dig in!

Logan had to join in on the feasting of course! He was NOT shy!





We managed to get one pretty good photo of us all at least!



Here's one of the videos I got of the girls reading their parts in one of the presentations they did.

Pictures of Logan

We took Logan to have some birthday pictures made today at Sears. The lady we usually use was all booked up until after Christmas so we headed to Sears with a great coupon and got alot of pictures for an awesome deal! We got some great shots of my baby boy. I can't believe he is going to be 2 in two weeks. As you can tell, he LOVES the camera and was not shy about posing at all. That's my boy!

Check out Logan's haircut he got this afternoon! Daddy took him to get his haircut and then brought him up to school to show me his new "spiky do".




While I was getting packed up and ready to leave school, one of our cleaning crew guys came in and he let Logan help him vacuum up the carpet. Logan loved it! He said, "Mommy, I helper!"





Also, last night the girls got to attend a Pump-it-Up party with some other friends from school. The students had to sell at least 15 items in our school's cookie dough fundraiser to earn the party as one of their prizes. They had a blast!
