Got up a little late this morning and we were all moving a little slow, but we finally made it out the door and headed to Grantsboro to see grandma! Sophie was so excited just to see everyone and is now a pro at opening presents. Remembering the last couple of Christmases where you had to coach her into opening the next present because she just wanted to play with the one she just opened!
Anyway, we returned home that evening to bake Santa's cookies. Man what a sugar rush Santa's gonna have this Christmas!!

That was the name of Sophie's first Christmas play. And she was not loving that sheep costume!! But except for that minor detail, everything went great. This was also my first year, along with Shelly, to do the background for the play. It was alot of work, but when it was all said and done we were both very pleased with the outcome:)

Our second annual trip to Busch Garden's Christmas Town...hoping this will be a new family tradition as it really just sits the mood for the season. Complete with a Santa that knows the true meaning of Christmas. After spending some time in deep conversation with Sophie he then motioned for William to lend his ear. Confirming what we already knew that our daughter was a gift from God and that we are blessed! REALLY love that Santa! Family picture taken in "France". One of my favorite countries.

This had to be the longest hurricaine ever!! Starting at 1:30am saturday morning I moved Sophie from her bed to my makeshift bed in the closet under the stairs. Mommy slept(if you want to call it that) halfway between and hall and closet. We spent all day saturday in the hall fingerpainting, coloring, putting puzzels together, and watching a little Nanny McFee. Call me overprotective, but just not taking any chances with this precious little girl!

So I really have lots up catching up to do! Let's start with what I hope to be our Annual trip to Top Sail Beach. It was so nice to be able to spend the weekend with the Decker Family. We learned real quick last year that one day just wasnt' enough. I just love seeing the girls together. When they walked through the "Shark" at the surf shop, it wasn't hard to tell that Savannah had just woke up. Sophie played shy....for just a bit. After a little shopping it was off to Mickey D's for a late lunch as the girls very quickly warmed up to each other.
And it didn't take long for Tannor to win Sophie over either.
A little down time while Melinda prepared a yummy supper ending with a fruit pizza that was just heavenly. And since we're making memories here I must confess...on my night to cook, I decided to be "smart" and put a ham in the oven while we played in the pool. SOOOO, we had blackened ham with cheese potatoes that took 2 hours to cook because I didn't realize I had turned the oven off after taking the ham out!!! I think it was like 9pm by the time we ate!
Another day on the beach. I don't have any pictures of these too at the pool. Must have forgotten the camera:(
And at the end of our visit. It was time for our photo shoot. Melinda got the girls matching dresses. They were just adorable!! My camera fogged up and thank goodness Brian was smart and left his out on the balcony... He took some awesome pictures!! Can't wait til next year!!!
