Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas!


Well, it's 1:34 a.m. and Derek is in his office putting together this little something for Ella Grace...

A pink kitchen.

I just finished making this, so all I'll have to do is bake it in the morning (well, this morning...ha)...

Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole - My mom ALWAYS asks me to bring this dish. It's her favorite.

We have had a fabulous time enjoying this Christmas season. I can't wait to share pictures of all the fun (when I'm not sleep deprived). We have had three of four family Christmases with our last one being tomorrow (well, today).

Right now, Evan's favorite toy has been Lincoln Logs he received from my Mamaw.


Ella Grace's favorite gift is this pair of princess shoes she got from my mom and dad. She is wearing them ALL the time. I have been awakened at 6:00 a.m. to the clip clop of these shoes and her little voice telling me, "Momma, wanna touch 'em? Aren't they purty?"


Love to all of you!

Poor Derek! Alvin and I were just laughing.....the last time we saw 2:00 am was the year Santa brought a kitchen to the girls. LOL!!! After that, Alvin said "no more"! I hope you guys have the best Christmas ever!

I came to your blog from Kelly's Korner, and you just have the sweetest family! I was looking at the pictures you posted of your little girl's room, and I love the duvet/comforter you have on her bed. Could you tell me, was that handmade or did you find it in a store? It would match my little girl's room perfectly! Thanks so much, and I'll stop by again soon. Oh, and I saw today was your birthday-hope it was a happy one!

I can't wait to see EG's reaction to the kitchen!!! How fun! Y'all were up super late, but I bet it was worth every second!

Miss you girl - now that Christams is over I am counting down to our girlz trip!!!! ;-)

Kandi West said...

Oh how I love those feet! Wait until she wants to wear them to Church. Or MDO. Or really anywhere that is not really appropriate. I have to admit that I have given in to Annie several times. They just make her too happy.

Heather said...

I love EG's shoes and lincoln logs are so cool! So glad you had a great Christmas....and can't wait to see all the pics!
I have several Christmas posts to do myself- so many pics, so little time!!

Audrey said...

Lauren said...

What a sweet hubby you have!! And I love EG's shoes!! Perfect for a little princess.
