Busy Time of Year

We have been busy busy!!!  I was off the week of Christmas so I enjoyed lots of snuggles with my favorite 4 year old.  We went to my sister-in-laws on Christmas Eve and enjoyed Gumbo and sugar cookies.  Christmas morning, Parker woke up so excited to see what Santa bought him.  He told me that Santa must have thought he had been really good because he brought him a lot of toys.  Silly boy!  All of my pictures are on my good camera and I haven't taken the time to upload them.  We went back to my sister-in-laws for a yummy lunch.  I did manage to get a family picture!  

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!!

Pancakes with Santa and Christmas Fest

This weekend, I was able to fulfill one of my mommy dreams.  Our local town celebrated Christmas all weekend with lots of Arts and Crafts and a parade.  Parker and I woke up early on Saturday and went to a local church for Pancakes with Santa.  It was so much fun.  I remember seeing all the Santa breakfast pictures prior to us deciding to have a baby and I use to think how much fun it would be to go with our child.  Daddy was out of town hunting for the weekend so it was a Mommy and Parker weekend!

Guess what he told Santa that he wanted for Christmas, a rocket ship.  Turns out that he played with one at Briley's house.    Now, Santa must bring a rocket ship.  

After breakfast, we met up with a friend and her boys to walk around the festival and watch the parade.  Parker was so excited when he spotted the Kona Ice truck.  

We had a wonderful weekend and I enjoyed my one on one time with Parker. The next few weeks are going to be very busy so a relaxing weekend was in order.

  I'm so thankful for my precious little boy.      

Christmas Program and Pajama Day

Parker has so much fun at school.  He is constantly learning.  I attended his Christmas program last week.  Lee wasn't able to make so Jen Jen, my sister, came.  Parker was dressed as a townsman.  Each class took the stage to sing Christmas carols.  They did a wonderful job.  

Friday was pajama day and a special guest came to the school.  The special guest was no other than Santa.  Parker's teacher said that he asked for a rocket ship.  Well, that's the first I've heard of one.  

I love all these special things Parker gets to do at school.  This is such a fun time of the year.

Our Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was so wonderful.  More than anything, the break was much needed.  I was off work for 4 glorious days and soaked in every minute of it.  

The morning started off with me running 6 miles with some of the ladies in our running group. I needed to burn as many calories as possible so that I wouldn't feel bad for endulging in all the goodies.  

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Lee's family.  My sister-in-law hosted at her home.  We all ate to much and wanted to take a nap.  Parker enjoyed playing tennis and football with his daddy and cousin.  He's such a monkey, always climbing something.

Now on to Christmas!  It's December 1 and we haven't bought a tree.  The goal is to get a tree and get it decorated this week!  I'm also on Turkey Day Detox!  I'm surprised my pants aren't tight after all the sugary food I ate.  I feel really sluggish so back to clean eating.

Have a great week!
