Holiday Fun!

We have been so BUSY these past few weeks! The time has flown by so fast that it seems like Thanksgiving was yesterday but Christmas is TWO weeks from today! Where has the year gone?
We had a fun Thanksgiving this year! We had "Alden & Katlynn's Annual Thanksgiving Lunch" on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. It's amazing that we have been having playdate with some of these kids since Alden was nine months old! The picture below is Stella, Alden and Abby at the first playdate we ever had! I hope our kids continue to like hanging out with each other because I love all their parents! We are so blessed to have so many GREAT people in our lives to do life with! I don't know what I would do without them!We hosted my family and Jason's family at our house on Wednesday (since Jason had to work at the station on Thursday) and it was great! We had 26 people here and tons of great food! Our sweet neighbors, Bart and Leigh Anne, even got to come over even though they probably think we are so crazy now!
We got the guys to do a remake of the picture from a couple of years ago but it took a Lot more convincing this time! And Zack was conveniently missing in Texas :)Times have definitely changed but the little guys were so cute!(The big guys were not too happy to take the picture)
We even got some good old fashion arm wrestling in :)
And we go to meet Tessa! The kids already love her!And we celebrated Taylor's 15th Birthday! Everyone STAY OFF THE ROADS!!!!!This past Saturday, Patti and I did the picture for the Breakfast with Santa at Katlynn's school and it was CRAZY!!! We had over 100 kids come through in four hours!!! This was our first big photography day and I think it went okay. I guess we'll see how it really went when we start giving the orders to everyone and get their reaction! Pray for us!!!Adam, Laura, Connor, Owen and our family went to see the lights at Callaway Gardens on Sunday and it was a lot of fun! The kids got to see Santa again And we, of course, had to get the (WAY overpriced) hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies! Overall the past few weeks have been packed with LOT of fun, friends, family and food and that's exactly what I like about this time of year! (Especially the food ;)

Isn't this just the best time of year! There are so many things to do for the whole family to enjoy! I think the Santa pictures you took are much better than in the past. I like the darker background! I have always wanted them to snap the picture when the kids are talking to Santa, that's the best part! I'm glad you captured that! I am sure the orders will be great! The photo of you guys as a family at Callaway Gardens, is an awesome one and you are all smiling! It's always hard to get that shot, but you seem to have your family trained! :)
