Christmas Fun

We have had a fun and busy Christmas season! I have been in full swing training mode for real estate and have realized I have SO much to learn, but am loving being back around adults and learning about real estate. I'm praying 2012 is a great year for the housing market!

Lots of pictures to come...

A quick picture before we headed out to Jonathan's squadron Christmas party. It was a fun time and we had lots of laughs!

We are thankful to Jonathan's parents for coming and staying with Cole while we went to the party. Cole loved snuggling with his Mawmaw.

I snapped a quick picture of Cole in his classroom. This was the day of their "Happy Birthday Jesus" Christmas party. Cole is really enjoying school here and his teacher Mrs. Kay. It is a great program and I am pleased as well.

We headed to Mobile last weekend to see Aunt Misty graduate from nursing school. Luckily Cole slept through graduation!

But he woke up towards the end and took a few pictures. He was looking so cute!

Cole and Aunt Misty. We are so proud of her!

I love this family!
Friday night we went to the Bellingrath House and Gardens and saw all the lights. It was beautiful!

We all had fun! :-)

December has been a great month! We have seen our family every weekend which is awesome! We are looking forward to celebrating CHRIST this weekend and hope you are too!

Have a blessed Christmas!

Moving, Thanksgiving and Breakfast with Santa

Whew! What a crazy few weeks we have had! We survived the 13 hour car ride and made it to Mississippi safe and sound. We got all of our stuff delivered and are pretty much all unpacked and settled. What a great feeling to be in our new home that we have anticipated for months! I will try and get pics up soon of the inside of the house.

We were able to go home for Thanksgiving for the first time since we have been married (almost 9 years!) so that was a nice treat. It feels strange being this close, but in a good way.
Here are some pictures from our Thanksgiving.
Cole and Aunt Misty. They got lots of good playtime in!

Francis, Grandma Grammar, Jonathan and Super Cole
We stayed the night with my dad on Friday. Love these men! :-)
Me and my dad
I tried to get a good picture of the three of us, but it wasn't happening.

This morning we went to the base for Breakfast with Santa. This is our 3rd year to do this and we always enjoy it. Cole has been really into to giving me "mad" faces lately so that is what I got.
Sitting with Santa.
Not the best picture, but at least we are all in it. Plus, I was able to tell Santa what I wanted for Christmas. I have been extra good this year! :-)

After we left the breakfast we headed to Tuscaloosa for the day. We met Jonathan's parents at Target and they took Cole to the park to play and then back to their house. Jonathan and I got to shop and have lunch together. It was so nice to have some time just the two of us while Cole was having fun with his grandparents. I think we will like this being closer thing! :-)
