Mason's 1st Haircut!

On December 21st we took Mason for his 1st haircut! At only 9 months old, he definitely needed it. We took him where we take Maddox, Pigtails and Crewcuts. Our favorite lady, Keisha, was not there that day, but Ms. Swan cut his hair. He did GREAT!!!

Now he has his cape on!

Look at me drive!

All done! He looks like such a big boy!

Dan, Dorilee and Tian Came to Dinner!

Some good friends of ours, the Pervorse's, came to dinner at our house on December 20th. Jerrod and Dan met on the trip to Africa last June. They hit it off and were buddies while in Africa. We have kept in touch ever sense. We just love the whole family and all get along so well. Due to hectic schedules we don't see them often enough, but it is so much fun when we do.

Maddox and Tian obviously having a blast with Jerrod!

Christmas at Ginny and Wayne's House!

On December 19th, we went to a Christmas party at Ginny and Wayne's house. Jerrod was working, but Maddox and Mason went with me. We had a blast. We had a wonderful dinner, hung out and exchanged gifts. This is an annual event and such a great time!

Christmas Fun at Preschool!

Back on December 17th, Maddox had his Christmas party at school. They made reindeer puppets, ate pizza and cookies and exchanged books with each other! It was a lot of fun! Jerrod was not able to make it, but Mason slept through it, so it was nice to give Maddox my full attention at his party. Maddox gave all his classmates candy trains that we made too.

Thanksgiving Fun in McRae!

OK, I know I am a little behind, but wanted to tell you all about our Thanksgiving trip to Jerrod's parents' house in McRae this year. It was a beautiful cool fall weekend and we were fortunate enough to get to spend a few days down there instead of just the holiday. It is always relaxing and enjoyable. Maddox is in heaven around all of the animals and this year there was a 8 week old puppy that he enjoyed playing with also. We have so much to be thankful for and family is just one of them!

Pa hooked up Marty and Max and Maddox went for a wagon ride.

Pa and Maddox in the wagon . . . what fun!

Maddox loving on the puppy. So sweet!

Maddox is such a good helper in the kitchen. He helps Ma with Thanksgiving dinner.

Mason loved this big plush reindeer.
