celebrating Christmas Eve...

we went to grammy & pappy's house for brunch on the morning of december 24th. we read the Christmas story together & i played trains with pappy. i was VerY excited to receive the rest of my paw patrol plushy pups!

Christmas preparations...

here are a few catch-up photos that were actually taken before Christmas. i always enjoy setting up our nativity scene. i like to be sure that all my nativity people get as close to Jesus as possible. there's nothing wrong with that! i learned to play "jolly old saint nicholas" in the key of "C" & they key of "D" on the piano. also, i helped my mom make cut-out sugar cookies that we iced & sprinkled. i had so much fun getting ready for Christmas!

HaPPy ThAnKsGiVinG!!!

we enjoyed a wonderful thanksgiving holiday in huntsville with daddy's family. i especially liked the hammock that uncle craig hung in the front yard!! sorry there are not more pictures, but we were having so much fun, we kind of forgot about the camera until it was almost the end!

trot like a turkey...

last weekend was the annual turkey trot at my school. this is a one-mile fun run to raise money for the physical education department & to promote a lifestyle that involves exercise. daddy ran with me at the trot. and i mean we RAN the whole way!!!

pumpkin time...

here are the pumpkins that flanked our front door during this autumn season. i particularly enjoyed this tiny yellow & green gourd. i called her "my little chick."

happy veterans day!!!

we had no school today so everyone could celebrate our VeTeRaNs!! i went to the birmingham veterans day parade with pappy, grammy, mommy & daddy. we had so much fun watching all the floats & dancing to the music of marching bands. many people came up to my pappy & thanked him for his service! i am thankful for all the military people in my family: my pappy, granddaddy joe, great-grandpa brandt, g-daddy sawyer, uncle curt & uncle kyle!
