Christmas in Hotlanta

Okay back in November we were freezing and it doesn't usually get cold here until after Christmas. And now for the last week we have been in the 70's. 60's in the morning when I drop my kids off at school even. We have had to turn our AC on....in December. But they say cold is on it's way.

I am all ready for Christmas. So today I went for a run outside, stop by my local quilt store and made myself a new "H" pillow....well I am out of stuffing so it will be a pillow.

Our car is loaded with presents and tomorrow we are off to Savannah for a couple of days to celebrate Christmas with all of Steve's family. Ben and Madi are so excited to play with all their cousins and of course to open all the presents they get showered with from Steve's mom. I am excited too. Savannah is a 3 1/2 hour drive but this is the first assignment ever we have had that is close enough to family to do this stuff...it's wonderful.

Don't let that sweet little girl fool you...you see her fingers set and tongue out...she was out for 1st place in a game of musical chairs and didn't let anyone stand in her way.




There were some fun squeals when Madi handed out her Reindeer Poop treats at the party.

So... did Miss M win at musical chairs?!? She's got her Momma's drive, that's for sure!
Love your new soon to be pillow of H's.
Glad the reindeer poo was a hit! It always is fun with kiddos that age, isn't it?
Be safe traveling and have FUN!
Can't wait to see the entries when you get back!

We had really warm weather until today. This morning was 45 then it started dropping until it got to the teens. Now it is cold, cold, cold....

The school party looks like a fun time! Musical chairs can be interesting.

Have a great weekend and stay warm!!!

I am sure they loved the reindeer poop....that was such a cute idea!!

It is so nice that you are actually near family where you are stationed.....I couldn't imagine spending the holidays without our extended family.....there is nothing better than being able to celebrate these holidays together!!

Have a safe trip and Merry Christmas!

Jeni, I am so jealous that you are that close to family! I feel like we will never get to me close. Madi looks like a princess in her Christmas dress! She is such a beautiful girl.

Seriously.

I love the look on her face! We are having our class party this week ~ if it stops snowing that is.

Enjoy your family. We are staying put this year. Now that our children are a little older ~ Nick's in college and Shannon is a junior in high school ~ we find that it is easier to stay in CT rather than travel to MI for a few hectic days. I think we are going to make the journey over winter break in February to see family and join in the winter activities.

Have a very Merry Christmas!
