Love Christmas time
Who doesn't right?
We had lots going on this year
My mom had me and my siblings plan Christmas activities
for the weeks prior to Christmas,
so our days were full of fun times
I planned gingerbread houses for the kids,
my mom did the "Polar Express"
My brother Jackson did a white elephant gift party with the adults
We of course saw Santa
Brandon and I were able to go to a few Christmas Parties with

Waiting to see Santa Clause

Linford and Santa
Linny wasn't quite specific about what he wanted for Christmas this year
He kind of just said he wanted whatever Hewitt said he wanted
BUT Linford and Hewitt are VERY different and I knew that he
would not be satisfied with getting the toys Hewitt got
Needless to say Santa had a difficult time shopping for Linford this year

Hewitt and Santa
Hewitt on the other hand knew EXACTLY what he wanted
and had his list memorized
He would add things to his list daily
and then also take things off too
This confused Santa...

Harper and Santa
Harper was so CUTE with Santa
You would have thought he knew him forever
He jumped right up on his lap and started talking to Santa
Nothing about Christmas
He would just tell Santa about his day or something random
It was really sweet

Hewitt had to see Santa again
(actually we saw him 3 times)
because his list kept changing

Linford repeating what Hewitt just said

Making Gingerbread houses
Love Harpers and Linfords cheesy smiles,
then look at McCartneys big beautiful blue eyes

This smiley face is a fave in our home
Linford LIGHTS up every room
the moment he enters

I love this picture because it really says alot about these two
Hewitt is one of the most tender hearted sweet little kids I have ever known.
Harper is the one of the most SPUNKY little dudes I have ever known.
What a blast it is to have these two in our home

One of those moments that I love as a mom

The love my boys share is so fun to witness
This image is something I see everyday all through out the day

Me, Heather, Halle, Linford and Popps

Hewitt and Halle
Hewitt and J.J.

Grammy, Linsey, Jo-Jo, McCartney, Linny
These are some of my kids favorite people

Another thing that happens daily
I have learned how lucky I am to have kids
who naturally love little ones

Cute kids

Christmas Eve
