Picture a Christmas...

Literally.. I'll share our Christmas with you through pictures!!

We kicked off our festivities with a Christmas play put on by Riellys preschool. She was an angel OF COURSE!! It seriously was sooooo cute!!!!

Doesn't she look the part?

So this makes me an angelic mommy right?

Christmas this yr we spent it with my brother Jeremy and his family in Tennessee outside of Memphis. It rained and rained and RAINED so finally when the sun came out on Christmas Eve, we were alllll over that!!!

Jeremy had a party with his friends on Christmas Eve... here we are hanging out. Reese was off flirting with some little gal he met.

And there's nothing like a new pair of PJ's on Christmas eve!!!

It was real nice to also spend Christmas with my mom who flew in to Tennessee!

Reese got some new PJ's as well (Riellys were pictured in her bday post). His robe lights up!

The kids kept up with Santa watch.. I think at this point he was over Canada. But I can't remember.

And there's nothing like a good game of foosball Christmas morning. See how daddy towers over these kids?!!? Yeah he's kinda tall

Santa came!! Merry Christmas!!

And he brought scooters!!!

Oh Santa was good to me this yr!!! For those that know me, know my crazy obsession with Coach bags. I've been wanting one for many a yr!! This was a happy day!

Oh yes.. it's real and even the box is beautiful!!!

Band of Brothers series for Jon.. do you think he'll watch it???

Here it is again. Can't get too many pictures of this beautiful piece of work!

Hulk hands.. what were we thinking?!?!?!

It was a long and tiring morning.. we were exhausted!!

Riellys birthday falls after Christmas so the next day, we had a little party with grammy and the cousins for her bday!! Here is Rielly and her cousin Emma

Patton working on lighting those big 4 candles!!

Blowing out the candles! Seriously these were the biggest cupcakes EVER!!

To continue with the birthday festivities, before we headed back to GA, we made a stop at Chuck-E-Cheese with Jeremys family and grammy.

Rielly finally warmed up to the big ol rat!

Poor Rielly got a fat lip the day before from falling (that's nothing new with this little girl!). Here she is with gramma eating pizza!

Yeah you can't tell at all that these crazy boys are cousins can you?!?!? Here's Reese and Marshall!

And here starts the self portraits... me and Jon! say CHEEEESSSEEE

Yeah we must be related.. me and my big brother Jeremy.

And me and my mama.

And this was taken just before we had to say goodbye and head back home! Reese, Rielly, Grammy, me and the yummy baby Madelyn!!
Hope you enjoyed our little Picture a Christmas! Happy New Yrs everyone!!!

Your kids are so cute!! But Resse looks exactly like a younger Jon that I use to know. It looks like you guys had a great Christmas, it's so much funner when you can spend it with family.

It looks like you had a great Christmas! And Chuck-e-Cheese? I used to be such a snob & say that it was just a zoo for kids, but I LOVE it now. Isn't it great to just let them run & not have to worry about it? Love the bag, and I'm not even a purse-type person!
