Right now, Evan's favorite toy has been Lincoln Logs he received from my Mamaw.
Love to all of you!

Today is my dear friend, Kelly's, birthday. If you haven't already, stop by her blog and tell her "Happy Birthday!"

I LOVE decor mesh. I think it is one of the best inventions ever (besides the Slanket...ha!). I changed up my wreath this year by adding mesh and some ornaments. I also added mesh and decorations to some lighted garland to put around my door. It was fun to do.
Oh, I love to wrap presents!
Here is our mantle. Stockings are ready to be stuffed. Derek was scared the kids would pull the heavy holders down on their heads, so we didn't use them this year. About one minute after he stated his concern, Ella Grace was busy pulling stockings down, so I guess it was a smart idea.
I love getting out my old favorites every year. These are two I look forward to most...
Evan and Ella Grace love these snowmen. They all play music and how fun when they are all going at the same time. That seems to be the way the kids like it! :)
Ella Grace and I made this gingerbread house with some friends last week and it is also on display in the kitchen. It was a lot of fun. She tells everyone, "Look Ella made."

Ella Grace has also really enjoyed the Precious Moments nativity scene. She has carried baby Jesus around quite a bit, and now we can't find Him. It is so sweet to hear her calling, "Baby Je-sus. Where arrrrre you?" If you ask her where He is, she says, "I dunno." We have turned the house upside down looking for Him. Hopefully He will turn up before His birthday.
Merry Christmas, Y'all!

Y'all, it's a throw blanket with sleeves! Oh my goodness. Is this real? Is this really happening to me? It is perfect, and I would personally like to thank the inventor. It is definitely a must have for any nest lover on your list. It comes in lots of colors (mine is above) and they even make them for kids (my kids would never be still long enough to nest...ever). Santa says mine is on its way! Woo Hoo! I just love Santa (and he is the one who found it)!
To get your very own Slanket, go here. Happy nesting!

Oh, and our third and final try of picture taking for our Christmas card went a little something like this...
And, yes, there were tears shed (almost by the parents, too).

I know a lot of you have already done this list, but if you haven't, please play along. It's harder than you think to come up with eight random things about yourself. :)

I am so thankful for these children of mine. We tried really hard before we left for Thanksgiving at my Dad's to get a picture. First we tried to get the kids for a Christmas card. We moved the coffee table and had them stand on it so they couldn't run off. Ha! This is what I got...
We also tossed around the football in the backyard. I even learned how to throw it AND catch it! Hee hee hee.
I found a yummy recipe for a corn casserole on Cooks.com. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it, and it was super easy. Here it is...
1 can creamed corn
2 eggs, beaten
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 stick butter, melted (or 1/2 c. oil)
1 c. sour cream
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. garlic powder (opt.)
Shredded cheese (opt.)
