My mom always starts out December with a gift for the kids and she continues this each day of December. She started this when Sadie was a baby and has continued doing it. They got hats one day earlier in the month.

We made a trip to Pigeon Forge to see the Christmas lights at the stadium and then went and saw a Christmas show at the Comedy Barn. It was my first trip to the Comedy Barn and I thought it was lots of fun for me and the kids. Richard even laughed a little. haha! He swears that Larry Bird was there. I'm still not sure of it though. We did pull up some pictures of him on our phones during intermission and the man could have passed for him if it wasn't him. We also stopped at the petting zoo and the best part of the trip for my kids was riding the camel. Who knew ?
The reindeer antlers cheer him up every time.

I don't know why this picture done this, but I was too lazy to redo it.
Rich and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary this month and lucky me got flowers at school. Sadie was pretty lucky too because she got some as well.

Rich and I went out for our anniversary. We ate at Bonefish and then went to the movies. It had been a long time since we had been to the movies and I was so excited until I started seeing the previews. I just knew it was going to be a cheesy movie, but it was great! It was the best movie I had seen in a really long time so if you haven't seen the "Fighter" you must go. All in all we had a great date!

I love Christmas decorations but I dread taking them all down. I haven't even started yet, but I know it is going to be horrible!

It's a tradition for Sadie to paint a canvas at Christmas and each year it is a Christmas tree. This year Gavin joined in on the fun.
I've always loved painting so I hope my kids will continue to love it as well.
Didn't they do a great job!

My kids have a new love for footed pajamas. They won't sleep in them because they are such hot boxes, but they love running around the house in them.

We loved getting all the snow and it was so magical waking up to a white Christmas!

My mom and dad got the kids instruments this year. Sadie got a guitar and Gavin got a fiddle.

Gavin enjoyed playing a little while Nannie cooked supper for us.

One of the kids' gifts this year from my sister-in-law was a painting class. They got to paint snowmen. Lots of fun and highly recommended :)
My little lefty did a great job!

Sadie and Cora did great as well! Oh, and Jill did great too!!!!
