Christmas Card Time

So each year I try to get some good (I settle for just shots) shots of the kids and of us as a family for Christmas cards. Each year I'm getting to this later and later - but in case you didn't get a card (Sorry) - here's some of the photos from this years shoot!

And after the Christmas Card Shoot - we sent Chase over to wardrobe to change for another shoot!

When Chase was born, Grandma Debi brought down an outfit that used to be Zach's. It's been sitting in the closet and I kept meaning to put Chase in it and take a picture. I decided it was time since it was nearly too small!

So here it is - Blue polyester bellbottomish pants, polyester vest and a blue and white checkered shirt...Isn't he Cute! And Zach's dad said he went home and compared these pictures to one's of Zach when he was this age...they look JUST alike.

Thanksgiving - and Many Reasons to be Thankful!

My family came to visit for Thanksgiving this year - just like when we first moved to Louisville. It was really nice to have Everyone here for the holiday. While they were here - we celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas and cousin Tyler's birthday. We packed a lot in to their trip - even a stop to the Yum!Center for a UofL game.

Here's some photos of just a few reasons we have to be thankful this year!

The Whole Fam!

How Cute is this Face!! - Happy Late Birthday Tyler!

"Here - let us help you with that Ty!"

Uncle Drew and Ty

The Happy Couple...they're giving me a reason to head to Mexico again this summer! And for that - I'm Most Thankful!

Santa made an early appearance on the deck...he went home with Grandma Nesie and Papa Knute - but on Christmas morning when we said Santa had visited us - Chase still ran to the sliding door to see if he was still on the deck!

Checking out the photos - Em got a new camera for Christmas - she LOVES it!

And mama loves that she's not carrying mine around anymore!

A big hit this year was our Pillow Pets from Aunt Carrie and Uncle Josh - everyone got a big and a little one!

I love this silly boy - and the big guy too!

What a crew!

As I said before - we have much to be thankful for this year and we've been Very blessed...note all those gifts. Spoiled and blessed!

Daddy and Em

And one last one of the boys drinking a "smoozie" as Chase calls them.

We're Thankful for All our Family who has been able to Visit us this Holiday Season! We miss you All Already!!!
