Christmas Morning!

SANTA DID COME!! He loved our treats and left a sweet note!

We also knew that Rudolph had some of the water we left for him... the water turned red from where his nose dipped into the water!! 

The tooth fairy made her stop as well. We were kinda worried because over at Meme's house, one of our cousins told us a story about  losing  a tooth on Christmas Eve and the tooth fairy and Santa got into a fight! This year they got along perfectly, the fairy even left the cash in the stocking! 

Landon was in shock!

Allie Ruth wanted to still be in bed! I had to go wake her up that morning.

Finally came around and opened your stocking with Dad!

Santa was way too good to us... 


Allie Ruth and I took a great nap Christmas afternoon! 

We spent Christmas night at Gammie's with Sydney, Shelly and Dailey!

It was also a lot of fun!

We had a great, relaxing Christmas Holiday! Kelly and I have said several times that this was our best Christmas ever! Its so fun seeing it through the eyes of your kids! 

Christmas 2011

Landon and I built this gingerbread house at his Holiday party at school! I think we did a great job! I was excited that I got to be a Mom for a little while at school. Landon had trouble earlier at the start of the holidays understanding the order of events. Like when is my birthday, when is Christmas, etc. When he realized that this day was a half day of school and full of fun, he said "Today is going to be a great day for me!" And it was!

Allie Ruth and her holiday hair! It didn't last long, but had to get a picture of the cuteness!
We celebrated Christmas with Mimmie on the 23rd. She came over and we had more yummy food cooked by Kelly! 

It was a great Christmas night!

On Christmas Eve...

Landon lost his third tooth! The tooth fairy and Santa in one night, OH MY!

We visited the Chaisson's on Christmas Eve afternoon before heading over to Meme's house! 
We had fun playing dirty santa, watching Meme open her gifts, and hanging out with family!

We tracked Santa all day online, so we knew it was time to get to bed! 

I wonder if Landon and Allie Ruth were good enough this year for Santa to come?

Landon celebrates SIX!

We started the celebration off with a sleep over! Nathan, our new friend from school, came home with you after school got out for the break. 

Our first ever sleep over went really well and was a lot of fun!

On the real day of your birthday, Wednesday, you wanted Allie Ruth to stay home from school and share your day. You are so sweet to her! and most of the time she does not deserve it!
The two of you spent the morning playing. I am thankful for how well you two play together. You are easy going for the most part and take really good care of your sister!

We ate lunch at home and then met Dad at Chuckie Cheese!!

Its hard to say who had the most fun!

Then it was time to rest up and get everything ready for your family birthday party!

You requested Mummy Dogs! The food was so good and the party was really laid back!

Good job Dad!! 

So thankful for our family that was able to come to the party! The guests included Mimmie, Gammie, Meme, and Uncle Bub!

After dinner, it was time to open presents!

For your sixth birthday you got your first riffle from Mom and Dad. Some other favorites were a remote control helicopter, remote control big truck and a wii game!

Time for cake and singing Happy Birthday!

We love you so much, Landon! You are such a blessing to Daddy and I! We could not ask for more out of a son and you are growing up too fast!!

Tennessee Christmas!

We packed up the car and headed up to Uncle Bub's cabin at the Tennessee River!

We got there in the early afternoon. We played outside and harassed Uncle Bub!

We had a really great dinner! Uncle Bub's ribs and Kelly's bacon wrapped crappie!

After dinner, it was time for PJs and PRESENTS!

Then we watched Elf and snuggled!!

It was a great, relaxing Holiday night!
