Small Town Christmas

 Our little town had a  tree lighting earlier this week, and with Cullen coaching, Leslie and I decided to take our kids for a night out of the house.

 It was the sweetest night and great to see how the town turned out to support the Town and Country Garden Club.

Colorado Cousin Came to Town

 Cullen's sister and her family moved to Colorado just under two years ago and haven't been back home since.  They love the outdoorsy lifestyle.  They came to Mississippi for a week but stopped by Pontotoc for a few days before flying back home.  
 Thanksgiving is a busy time for us as we host both sides of our family on Thanksgiving day at our house, but the day after Jett and Leila were able to play for the morning, before we headed to Jackson.  
 They explored the DD and Papaw's backyard, ran and swang, and made Cullen's mom's heart about as full as a grandmother's heart could be.   It was a fast paced time together.

This is one of the few times we four have been together since Dave and Faren's wedding day. It isn't a flattering picture of the four of us, but here it is, captured in all its glory.

Thanksgiving trip To Madison

 We had to make a flying trip to Jackson so we could see my brother and his family.  I was super sad they didn't make it to Thanksgiving this year, so Mom, Jett and I loaded up to see them.

The kids had the best time playing and making sure the Christmas decor was just perfect.

Thanksgiving 2017

 Our attendance was down this year.  We normally feed around 30 and this year it was just over 15 but we laughed and enjoyed being around everyone.

Friendsgiving at the McCarty's

The tradition continues with our annual get together. We've been celebrating and getting these kiddos together for years now.  They don't like to look at the camera, they don't like to sit still, they want to run and play and watch tv and be loud, and tattle on the littles.

Santa at Open House

We saw Santa at our town's open house.  Jett told him he wanted a Super Station and he was then done.  He only wants one thing he says.

Reading Fair

 I am that mom.  I know I am.  I wanted Jett to take part in the reading fair at his school.  The only catch is that in the pre K division it had to be a group project.  I contacted some of the parents of students in his class, I knew stayed in after school and we went to work.

 Here it is.  The finished project.  And I would have to say they did a great job.  They won first place and advanced to the Regional reading fair in a few weeks.

My Big Boy

 In an effort to try to get a Christmas Card photo, we had to have a quick photo shoot around town.
 I know I won't have much longer for outfits like this and I love them.  I am so thankful I have another baby boy on the way to put these outfits on in the years to come.  
Be still my heart, I love this child.
