Harrison's Christmas Party

Last weekend we attended a Christmas party for all of the families of children who stay at Nana Cheryl's daycare. We already knew most of the parents and their children, so it was nice to get together and enjoy a meal and let our children play. Unfortunately, Harrison was scared of Santa Claus and stayed very skittish until he left. However, we had a nice time and the kids enjoyed making crafts and exchanging gifts.

December Events

December has been very packed so far with many, many events and lots of family time. :) We have had a lot of fun and it seems like December is flying by and Christmas is almost here again. :)

So far we have watched a Christmas parade and waved at Santa, Ava and I went to see JT and Jonathan in White Christmas, put up our family Christmas tree, and had 2 bouts of beautiful snow. We also attended Sorghum Valley where Harrison had a traumatic visit with Santa.

Even though it has been busy, it has been a great month so far and I am looking forward to Friday and the last day of school for 2011!

Little Choctaws

Ava is cheering again this year with the Little Choctaws. We missed the first game of the year because of her being sick, but were able to make the second game. Last year we all laughed because Ava definitely had a mind of her own and pretty much did what she wanted when it was time to cheer. This year she has definitely matured and now she does what she is supposed to do and she did a fantastic job. I was so proud to see her up there cheering. She watched the video and said, "Next time, I am going to do even better!" :)

Harrison's 2nd Birthday Party

On last Saturday, friends and family gathered to celebrate Harrison's 2nd birthday. We decided on a train theme after I found his adorable overalls and it just fell into place. Of course he loves trains, cars, tractors, and basically anything that moves on wheels.

Even though it was his nap time, we had a great party and I thought everything was wonderful. Harrison opened up his first present and was pretty much done with the rest. I had to make him open up the rest of his gifts. :) He got a lot of really nice things and he has been playing with them nonstop.

Thanks to all who attended or sent cards and gifts. This little boy is very loved. :)

Ava made Harrison the cute drawing in the frame. So cute.

Another wonderful cake by Stacy. Loved it!

Thanks to my mom and dad who provided the vintage trains that served as part of our decor.

*HUGE thanks to Bo for taking the majority of these pictures so that I coul relax and enjoy the party!*
