Daniel had his Class Christmas party on Thursday of last week. The kids had such a great time making reindeer food, playing a Gingerbread Man gift swap game, decorating Christmas cookies, snacking, and spreading cheer! Luckily, Matt and I were both able to attend. Young children absolutley MAKE Christmas!!

This morning the kids were so excited to decorate our annual Gingerbread House. Our kit this year came with two gingerbread men (thank goodness it came with TWO so the kiddos could each have one!) and a tree! This was the first year Caroline has really participated, and boy did she take her job seriously! We had a great time, and I think the end result was pretty impressive! Special thanks to Ms. Billie for the kit!

This past weekend, the kids enjoyed a delicious breakfast with Santa at the church! Afterwards, Daniel stayed to create many unique, handmade gifts for friends and family. We are so lucky to be members of a church that goes above and beyond for the youngest members of our congregation!
Unfortunately, this was the only pic I got because my camera battery went dead! Good thing they are so stinkin' cute in this one (notice Caroline holding onto Daniel's pinkie finger!!) :)
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Auburn! We have SOOOO much to be thankful for! Our faith and the Lord above, our family, our friends, our home, our jobs, our health...I could go on and on!
Thanks to the Streets for hosting such a joyful time of family and food!!
We had such a great visit with my cousin Missy, her daughter Sarah, and Aunt Lawrinda last month (I know, I am VERY late posting!!)
We visited the zoo, played at the park, and went to Brewton for lots of outdoor fun!! I will let the pics speak for themselves! :)

Today Daniel's Kindergarten class went to the pumpkin patch. It was such a beautiful day for the field trip! Sunny skies, a nice cool breeze, and plenty of excited five year olds! Matt went with him today, which was a nice treat for both of them. Matt checked him out after the trip and they went to pick up Sissy from her school. Then, they headed over to the pumpkin patch at St. Mark to pick out a BIG pumpkin to carve with Pe Paw. They are on their way over now, so I will try to post pictures of our masterpiece tomorrow!
This past weekend we traveled to Panama City to help our nephew and neice, Will and Kate, celebrate their birthdays! Will turned 5 and Kate turned 3. Their theme was "sports teams," so ofcourse everything was decked out in Auburn items! From the huge tiger jumpy to the balloons...it was a blast! The Auburn game we watched later was certainly less entertaining, but I digress.
After the party we all headed to the beach to have family portraits made. I can't wait to see how they turned out!!
