Christmas Memories - 2010

I wish I had the time (or actually the energy) to do an individual post on our Christmas activities this year.  We had a lot of fun, and did many of the things on my "wish" list - we went to ride the Pink Pig (an Atlanta tradition), we had an elf party, we went to the Christmas parade downtown, we decorated, we made treats for friends, we attended Lindsey's holiday dance show, we visited Santa Claus, we had fun with our elves, and we spent a lot of time together as a family.  Unfortunately Emily got very sick a few days before Christmas (she had either the flu or a similar virus, even though she had a flu shot.  At one point, her fever got above 106 degrees), so a few of our plans got thrown out the window.  We tend to have bad luck in the weeks surrounding Christmas as far as illnesses go - last year our entire family (except for Carter) had rotovirus!  Anyway, since I'm so behind on posting, I thought I'd just share a few pictures of our Christmas season 2010!

While I am sad that a few of our plans got messed up at the last minute, I am SO thankful for all of the fun memories we made this Christmas.  It was truly one of the best Christmases we've ever had!

Hey Heather! Thanks for commenting again today....I did see your blog comment yesterday, and I came here yesterday and in-turn, commented on your blog : ) - but like you said, your comment to me, on my blog, somehow dissapeared?! Weird!!

I wanted to know who of my readers were local because I have connected with some local bloggers outside of our little space on the web and it has led to a wonderful, growing friendship : ) I'm hoping to form some even more wonderful, new friendships in this new year! As a stay at home mom, I've really been longing for connections with other like-minded women and realize how important it is to truly step out and get to know people, and not stay so closed off.

I look forward to continuing to read your blog and take in all of your life adventures with your beautiful family!
