Holidays at The Little White House...


We were driving around the circle downtown, when I look back to see Abbie smiling so big, that she had a little tear coming out of her eye. I asked her if she was happy, and she said, "I feel so Christmasy that I can feel my heart beating hard!" Now, that is my child. And I will have to admit, I was prouder at that moment than I was when she figured out how to add three digit numbers. That comment made me realize that I might be growing up...and now passing on that Christmas delight to my sweet children. Brian also commented on how he felt a little giddy as he walked into Walmart and heard the Christmas music playing. Have I finally rubbed off??? Maybe!

So, here are some pictures from our Thanksgiving weekend. Really, more pictures of our little humble abode. Welcome to our home...



I can not believe that Brian happily hung the boughs of holly this year! lol... And yes, he did sing that song while hanging them. I was so proud...and thankful!


Every "vacation" we take, we get an ornament for our tree. We always write the trip and year on the ornament somewhere. This was our new one. Picked out by Brian at Disney. He actually bought it from a Philipino woman named Philis. lol. For some reason, this ornament was the highlight of the tree this year. That trip brought us such an extreme joy.
Abbie trying to get it at the top.
A tradition that we started a few years back...the first night that the tree is up, the kids get to sleep in the Family Room with the tree lights on. All about the magic baby...
Evil man.
