Catching up.....Christmas

I started uploading all our Christmas pictures and lost them for some reason. 

So instead of dazzling you with 103 pictures, here are 3.

First we begin with the annual "Seriously Allison, I am not taking a picture sitting on Santa's lap" picture.

Mrs. Claus couldn't get Santa to really narrow in on the camera this year.  Maybe his far off gaze is regarding his upcoming busy season?

Next.....wait for it.....


Don't worry.....ALL the trees in the front yard had lights hanging from them!

And we round out our photo session with Cody reading his Christmas card from one of his dog friends.
(Not kidding)
He liked the card so much he hid it in a very special place.  The place is so secertive, I still haven't been able to locate it.

And with that....Merry Christmas (even if it is February)!

Catching up.....Thanksgiving Weekend

Yes it has been a while!  So to round out 2011, how about a quick overview of the major holidays?

First on the list....Thanksgiving.

This year J and I traveled to the land of milk and honey to celebrate Turkey Day.  Yes, you got it...we went to lovely Birmingham.

We spent some time with new friends.  Like this new family member....Bailey.

(Mom working the camera.)

and partied with our old friends!

 (I am telling you...we are real party animals!)

(the fun is just oozing all over the place in this picture!)

As long as everyone had some food the crowd was peaceful.....

but as soon as the fork was empty....

the crowd became a little hostile! 

All in all, we had one GREAT Thanksgiving!
