a very merry weekend!

We went a cookie decorating party with our MOPS group on Friday morning. My friend, Meredith, hosted it and it was such a fun morning!

Brody really took his cookie decorating seriously and went a little crazy with the sprinkles!

Friday night, the kids went to FNO at church, and we went to eat Christmas dinner at the Green’s house with a few friends. This has become a tradition that we look forward to each year!
All the girls, including, baby Caroline!

Saturday morning, we went to get donuts for breakfast and then made a quick stop by Red Hill for some paint. Our kids still had on their Christmas pajamas from the night before because I was that mom that didn’t care that they were in public eating breakfast in their pajamas. ;) When we were checking out, the lady at the store told us Santa was there to take pictures with kids for the morning. We went outside and were quickly greeted by Santa. Since I am bad about cleaning out my car and I still had my camera in there from the night before and was able to get a picture of them with Santa!

It worked out for them to have on their pajamas because it looked cute for pictures!

Santa’s elf was there to hand out candy canes. Jillian’s face was priceless when she saw him!

We have had a very busy week and weekend around here, so it was fun to be able to stop and do a few Christmas activities as a family in the middle of all the craziness! 

Speaking of Christmas…don’t forget about the Christmas Cash Giveaway that I am hosting along with 9 awesome bloggers!


Hope you all are having a great weekend!

It looks like you had a really fun time! I love Brody's boots with his pj's! My son went through a phase and wore cowboy boots EVERY day for 3 straight years. He wore them with shorts, dress clothes, you name it! My favorite was his preschool graduation with his khaki shorts, polo, grad. cap and cowboy boots!
