Merry Christmas!

December has been a whirlwind of a month. It is officially my busy season and this year was particularly busy. There were more performances this year than in years past and just extra stuff in general. But it has been a great month. I have enjoyed it so much! From playing Secret Santa at school, to my students performing at school, Barnes and Noble and MAD Pizza, to our faculty Christmas Party - there has been a lot going on. My students did fabulous at each performance and had fun - the most important part. I'm looking forward to having a couple of weeks off to spend with my favorite reindeer!! Henry came by school on Friday (he was with my mom) to see me and show me his Rudolph outfit from his party at school. He was so funny.

He was in the bathroom a few days ago and obviously spent some time thinking while in there because he came out and asked, "Mom, how come his name is Santa Claus when he doesn't even have any claws???" Hilarous!

Here is one more picture to share. I just figured out how to use pictures I take with my phone, so I hope to share more of those. Henry (sometimes) likes to go with me to Wal-Mart, but lately wants me to "bury" him under the groceries. This was a couple of weeks ago. He is completely covered but was quick to point out that he could still talk to me. He was careful not to cover up his mouth. People walking by wouldn't see him at first and would crack up laughing when they saw him. I think he definitely has Scottie's sense of humor!

We are having a great Christmast time and look forward to spending time with family and friends!

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Scottie's family (mom's side) in Wooster, Arkansas, at Uncle Danny and Aunt Sandy's house. They have a beautiful home there and were so generous to open their home to over 50 people on Thanksgiving Day! There was more food than we could possibly eat!

Me with Scottie's sister, Jamie.

Family and friends

My mom and me. Mom and dad came with us to spend the day in Wooster.

This is Scottie's cousin's girlfriend - everyone said we looked like sisters!

Doug and Jeremy. Jeremy is our nephew and was the ringbearer for our wedding when he was 6 years old. He in now in college!! Time flies!
Scottie and his sister, Shannon. They are about 18 months apart in age and have always been very close.

Henry posing with a Sprite can. So silly.

Scottie's dad. He and Scottie both came in from deer camp for the day.

It was a great day! We had so much fun and just enjoyed really visiting with family and friends.

On the way home, Henry and I had a little fun with the camera and traded goofy poses.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. It is busy season for me with concerts and performances every other day for the next couple of weeks. I hope to have some pictures up from some holiday festivities soon!
