Christmas Morning!!

It's funny how months of preparation, buying, wrapping, decorating, and anticipation are undone in all of 15 minutes! This year was the first year that Landon and I have had our very own Christmas. You'd think after 6 years of marriage this wouldn't be so, but because of Landon's previous career, we never lived in one place long enough to do the whole Christmas thing! This was the first year we've ever decorated a tree and had our own Christmas morning in our own house. Landon and I have been so blessed our entire marriage and experienced things that people only see on TV, but I would not change where we are today for anything! Landon's football days are over, but we have built a life that is filled with love, trust, and true friendship. This was by far the best Christmas we have ever had- hands down!

Maddie finally got her Nintendo DS. I must say, that is my favorite toy! It's so fun!! Sam had so many Diego and Little people playsets that he didn't know where to start! Landon actually did really well this year. I have a boutique here in town that I love and he had the owner help him pick out some new clothes and jewelry for me. I was so proud of him!! I didn't really have a list or anything, but everything he bought were things I would've bought myself.

We spent the rest of the day at Landon's parents house. His entire family was in town and we had the best day!! I had to make 2 pumpkin pies and a greenbean casserole. It's sort of a running joke about how much of a non-baker I am; but this year I rocked those pies!! They were awesome. Well, I thought they were awesome :) I'm posting an old pic of the first time I ever baked a pumpkin pie- it's one of my favorite pictures because Sam is just so dang cute (it's the first one).

A little Christmas...

Last Sunday at church was the kids Christmas program. I work in the nursery with 1-3 year olds so basically I just had to make sure they didn't freak out! Sam was so cute with his little bells. He wasn't too sure about it at first, really he just wanted to go bang on the drums, but after a while he was ok.-- Maddie on the other hand, was Brilliant! As you can see from the pictures, she is by far the tallest in her class. She was on point with all the words and moves. It's really funny to see her up there! Long before I was a mom and a wife I was really involved in drama in junior high. I always thought I would end up doing something on stage- but that didn't exactly pan out:) Anyway- it was awesome to watch her on stage and her love for Jesus is so inspiring. She always tells me "God is bigger than Everybody" and believes it with her whole heart. Oh, to have the faith of a child. Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Christmas with the ones they love!
