The next two photos come from my good close-up lens... just fun stuff that I've been playing with the past little while! 

Don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing that smile. 

Pretty, pretty eyes = Your Mama's heart.

Dresses for a Wedding

My friend Stephanie is getting married in less than four months!!! Today I went with Stefanie and Melissa to David's Bridal to get fitted for our dresses for the wedding. We had a great time and shared lots of laughs! (Don't worry Steph, we ordered them in blue!!)

A Snow Story

"Okay, let's see what this snow thing is all about."

It sure does make cool sounds when you walk on it!

IT IS COLD!!! Why didn't you tell me it was cold?!? 

Thanks for picking me up, Dad. Snow sure isn't fun to sit in... 

Gross... I hate snow.

Mom, did you know that they sell things called GLOVES?!? You should think about purchasing me some ASAP.

Okay... maybe the snow isn't so bad. 

LOOK!! It falls from the sky!

What is that sound I hear??

Did you see that four-wheeler go through the snow?? WOW!!

Do you think I could do that in my four-wheeler? 

So that's a no?? Sad. It sure would be fun to try. 

YAY!! I love the snow! 

Nah... I hate it. It's cold stuff...

Christmas 2010!!

I believe that we had the most relaxing Christmas ever!! The past few years, we have been very busy on Christmas day, and we have traveled a ton. It is always exciting, but it was so much fun to stay close to home all day long!

Grayson didn't really know what to do when we went downstairs and he saw all of the things Santa left for him. He didn't know what to touch first, but soon he was playing with EVERYTHING!!!

Then Jason and I opened our presents to each other. Jason got some Carolina gear and a PS3 game, I got a new Keurig (the coolest thing ever!!). 

After gifts to each other, we got ready for the next exciting event... Jason's family visiting! Jason's family made the trek from Blythewood to Lyman this year, and we really enjoyed our visit with them! 

For snacks I made some chocolate peanut butter bars, cookies, spinach and artichoke dip, crescent rolls, and had bottled cokes and my new coffee station available!! It turned out great!! 

Grayson was spoiled rotten once again, because his JuJu and PawPaw got him a baby 4 wheeler (which he already knows how to run all by himself) and a baby trampoline (which he also already knows how to use!)!

In true beginner photographer style, I took too many pictures of my child and not enough of the rest of the party... I'll do better in the future!!

Around lunchtime, we traveled over to Mom and Dad's house for Christmas dinner. It was fun to be able to share in this dinner with both sets of our parents and grandmothers. 

We also managed to get some decent pictures of our little family!

After lunch, we went home and relaxed. We watched the snow fall (YAY!) and enjoyed our time as a family. It was wonderful.

With flash

Then we went back to Mom and Dad's house for just a little bit to celebrate with my extended family. By this time, our boy was VERY tired (and a little grumpy)... we stayed for about an hour and a half, but we were a little scared that we might get snowed in if we stayed any longer (and after our experience in Asheville last December I actually do fear the snow!) so we headed back to the house.
