Well, it's that time of year again! Time for holiday preparations!!!! For me, it's kind of bitter sweet this year. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE the holidays, but this year will be my 1st ever Thanksgiving away from my family in South Carolina. And, having grown up in a HUGE family, this is a HUGE deal to me. However, we have a very special trip planned for the week before Christmas with that HUGE family of mine, so that will make up for being lonely on Thanskgiving!! We will be leaving December 18th for a cruise to celebrate my grandparents (MawMaw & PawPaw) 55th wedding anniversary!!! So, there will be 24 of us (yes, you read that right) going to the Bahamas!!! I can't wait...and, neither can the kids. I can only imagine how much fun we are going to have. So, we will get off the ship on Thursday and head to South Carolina for Christmas and Santa. So, that will be such a memorable trip.....and, because we will be gone that week, we decided that we would decorate for Christmas early. So, last night, we had our very special Christmas Tree Decorating Party...complete with party food, candy and of course cake! We had a blast!!!
I am having a terrible time with photos today, so these are in no particular order...sorry! But, we have company over and I just don't have time to be OCD over the pictures!
Taylor was really into the Christmas music I had playing, so she ended up in her dance outfit dancing all over the living room.
My sweet funny boy dancing to the music!
I got him!
The festivities wore them out!!!! They both feel asleep cuddling with mommy...I couldn't have been more pleased.
Taylor also had her Thanksgiving Program at her school on Thursday...she was Flying Eagle. And, the most beautiful Flying Eagle ever- if you ask me :)
Taylor wanted us to take a picture of her papoose and baby...too cute!
This family of mine is no doubt the loves of my life! I couldn't be more blessed!!!
Well, we have been really busy this past week and this weekend. Last Thursday evening, we went to the Veggie Tales concert. They held it at our church, and since our whole family LOVES Veggie Tales, we certainly weren't gonna miss out! Also, Matt and I spent the weekend painting....I had had enough of the white walls....here are a few pics!!!
Sorry for the shortness of this post, but I am going to enjoy pizza with the family, my back is hurting and I have a horrible cold and am coughing like crazy. So, this is as good as it gets!
And, yes....for those observant ones of you, that is Taylor sitting in time out! haha!
I am Joy Jarrett- wife to Matt (8 years), and mother to Cole (6) and Taylor (4). Our family life is wild and crazy, but we wouldn't have it any other way! For me and Matt, our kids and family are our life! We wouldn't change a thing.
