December 2010

This month.......

We had breakfast with Santa at our church (and Brady was surprisingly well-behaved).

Rob bought a new (to us) truck. And I have completely neglected to take any pictures of it yet, except for this one of Brady in the backseat and becoming more and more frustrated by all my picture taking.

We went in search of the perfect Christmas tree...

and found it.

Brady supervised....

and threw around old tree stumps.

Carson and I took absolutely no part in any type of manual labor except for picture taking....

which Brady was totally annoyed by.

Until he saw the "train" go by and thought he was being left behind.

We're not that mean though. He was in heaven, although I'm sure the passengers that sat around us could have done without the train noise "sound effects" Brady was screaming while we waited to depart. 

Brady's Mom's Day Out class had their Christmas party.

And they all wore their reindeer t-shirts (made out of their hand and foot prints).

Which I neglected to get a clear picture of.

But take my word for it, they were the cutest t-shirts I've ever seen. I actually got tears in my eyes when he brought it home in his bag a few days before the party. 

And then Christmas morning came. And we were completely spoiled by our families...

What do you mean I have to write Thank You notes???

Then our friends Justin, Britni and Noah came over for dinner Christmas evening.

Brady and Noah exchanged gifts....

and of course Brady had to "help" Noah unwrap his (Brady was an expert at unwrapping by this point in the day).

We had a yummy dinner prepared by the fabulous Honeybaked Ham Company :)

Some of my goodies I received from Rob and my mom.

Overall, we had a great Christmas! The only thing that would have made it better would have been to spend it with family....we missed you! 

And one last picture of me. I had to ask Rob to take a picture of me pregnant (29 weeks).  I have so many pics of me pregnant with Brady, but hardly any this time around. 

We are leaving for a short trip to Atlanta this afternoon. I'm really looking forward to it. The last time we took a trip there was when we decided to start "trying" for a baby. Three months later I got pregnant with Brady. We are planning on doing some shopping at my favorite mall - Lenox Mall - shopping at Ikea, and taking Brady to the Georgia Aquarium and possibly the children's museum as well. We are staying at a really nice place too with a large indoor pool which I'm sure Brady will love :) 

Happy New Year!

You look amazing pregnant! Looks like you had a good Christmas. We went to Atlanta in May this past year and went to the Lenox mall and while we were there we saw Hillary Scott from "Lady Antebellum" and Luke Bryan (country singers). Loved that place! Have a good New Year's!
