This month Carter has had two trips as rewards to filling up his chart! The first one was to go see the "Princess and the Frog." Libby and Danielle came with us and it was a lot of fun! It was a really cute movie, you should all see it! Ha ha

Danielle and I were super excited to see the poster for Eclipse! Yay! Can't Wait!

Last night we went to the M&M Factory on the strip. They have a free 3D movie to watch after walking through and then we each got a small bag of M&M's from the BIG selection they had! We all had a blast! If you're looking for something free and fun to do with the kiddos, I recommend this! Fairly quick trip (2 hours from leaving our house to leaving in our car from there) and free unless you buy M&M's.

Christmas...very late!

This is a very late Christmas posting, but I scrapbooked some pictures to post and then forgot to ever post them! I seriously am just busy-brained all the time now and I feel like it never slows down (like I was expecting and hoping after Christmas!). But I do oh so love all the family get-togethers and busy kids that keep my life so busy. I could do without the mess that I have to clean day after day, but it kinda goes with the territory, right?

Anyway, Christmas was a blast this year! Carter was so excited for Santa Claus and he just gets funner and funner every year! He loved our Santa advent calendar and asked for an "Ironman that does NOT talk and does NOT have a backpack." Very hard to find, by the way, but we convinced him the backpack and talking was pretty cool, and after Santa called him, he was A-okay with the slightly altered request.

Kelsie was our favorite little present around this year, of course and we loved that she started crawling around right before Christmas and ate all the wrapping paper! Ha ha...our cute little rugrat is so cute. She also started pulling her self to stand right before Christmas! Only is the thing she was using was chest level or lower could she stand, though. So, she enjoyed using all the square presents as hoists to stand against!

And lastly, Justin got me my beloved breadmaker that I have been LOVING!!!

Family Pictures

So, about a week and a half before Christmas, we went out to Floyd Lamb State Park to take family pictures. I've been wanting to do this for some time now, but finally we got around to it! Thankfully, Jason and Danielle came along with us so we could take turns taking each other's pictures! They turned out super's so pretty there!
