Missing: 2 elves

So, what happens when your elves are missing? I was looking all over the house for them to help them return to the North Pole tomorrow and we can't find them...anywhere. I told Hill that maybe "Huxley and Bailey returned a day early to the North Pole." hmmmmmmm...WHERE are those elves??(I really hope they didn't decide to hide in one of our trash boxes??!!?!?)

Happy Birthday Jesus!!

We had a birthday party for Jesus today at one of my friend's (and neighbor's) beautiful home. Lauren P. was so sweet to host all of us and the kiddos. We had cupcakes, sang "Happy Birthday to Jesus", and released balloons to Heaven for him. Enjoy the pictures!

O'Christmas Tree

I have been playing with my camera...a lot(Scott said I looked like a Japanese tourist around the house). So, I used Rett's FAVORITE time of the day as a great opportunity to snap away.

I couldn't believe it when I came in the room and Hill was helping Scott decorate the tree. WHEN did he get big enough to do that!?!? When I looked back at pictures, it was amazing to see how fast and how much he's grown in just 4 Christmas'.

All Aboard...

Okay, I know I totally skipped over our Disney trip...that may be attributed to the fact that half of our pictures were totally out of focus. My poor, sweet husband had to listen to me complain about each and every one of them. So, the sweet, sweet thing that he is surprised me with a new camera for Christmas. THANK goodness he gave it to me before our fun filled week so that he wouldn't have to hear me complain about all of those pictures.

I got the new Nikon D90, so if anybody has any tips or recommended manuals, PLEASE let me know. Now, if I have blurry pictures it is totally user error.

With that said, I will get back to Disney after Christmas photos-but, in the meantime, TIS THE SEASON! We had the most fun last night on The Polar Express. Granny, Lori, Dane, James, Will and The Bennett family were all on the same train car with us which made it SO much fun.
