'Tis the Season 2017


Well, that was a fast month!   We loved spending Thanksgiving break having Nanny visit! We miss her being here and wish she would have stayed for the month!   We quickly shifted from Thanksgiving to Christmas.  We decorated the house, baked, mailed our Christmas cards, went to The Nutcracker.  I spent the day wrapping gifts, which means my shopping is almost completed!   Looking forward to all of the fun this time of year provides!  Stay tuned....Lots of Holiday Cheer to go around!

A special box from Minonk.....and the Best Surprise of ALL!




Grandpa and Kim sent the girls a box of Christmas Cheer!  Their annual ornaments were a perfect fit...Mia's a tennis player and Ansley's a cheerleader!  These girls will have trees filled wit their childhood memories!  And then.....

they came to visit!!!  They made the 8+ hour drive to watch their winter choir performances!  We are so thankful for them making this memory!  Our lives our busy, but what a special treat for them to pause and make us feel loved! 

Christy is BACK!


This is a much anticipated day each year...when Christy arrives from the North Pole!   Let the magic begin!  

The Nutcracker


The girls and I attended the 2nd Annual Nutcracker here in NWA!   We love this ballet and all of the magic of Christmas!   What a fun evening with my girls!

Baking Day!





It is always a fun tradition to bake cookies for Christmas.  We spent an entire weekend with the interruption of seeing the Nutcracker baking.  We have lots of treats to share with those we love!

Candy Houses 2017











Mom and the girls decorated their candy houses together.  This is a favorite activity to kick off the Christmas decor in our house! 

Thankful...Thanksgiving 2017




We have so much to be thankful for this year!  We celebrated Thanksgiving week with Nanny, what a blessing she is to us!  Scott hunted with dear friends from Atlanta, so that was a much needed break for him!  Thanksgiving foods were prepared with love and enjoyed by all!  Another year of blessings!

Girls getting ready for Christmas






Ansley's Tree

Mia's Tree



When we got home last night from Branson, Scott and I watched the Bama game, and the girls sprinkled Christmas cheer in their rooms.  They had to get bigger trees this year because they have too many ornaments!  They love their new rose gold trees filled with many ornaments!

Jamfest, Branson, MO 11-11-17

All that time in the gym is about to pay off!  





2017 has officially kicked off!  What an experience.  There needs to be a prep class for hair and make-up and the culture!  We had fun watching Ansley doing what she loves!  Team Electric got 3rd overall.  Looking forward to a fun season!
