Christmas 2008



We've had such a great week off already! I'm sad that I have to return to school next week, but Christmas has been so much fun!

2 weekends ago, we took the girls to The Great Wolfe Lodge. We had such a good time relaxing. Derrick and I took turns watching Macey, while we ran around in the luke warm water, and I even rode a tube ride with the girls! My pics didn't turn out so well, but it was a fun getaway.

Before Christmas, Ella and Ms. Amanda invited us over for a Christmas P.J. party! Macey loved hanging with Barrett and we got some shots of the babies sitting beside one another. I love getting together with everyone and letting the kids interact and enjoy one another!

Christmas Eve, D had to work, but Macey and I had a blast with family and it's neat to see Miss Cam and Macey share these holiday memories together. They were both dolled up in their "fur." We spent our night at Aunt Denise's in Dallas.
Christmas Day, D was off, so we had the girls and I took some snapshots of all of us on Christmas Day. We enjoyed a day with Nana B, Aunt Jan, and Grandma. We later went to my mom's, Nana C, where we had a gift exchange and ate a non-traditional Cajun Christmas lunch.

After Church on Sunday, I got the girls to pose by our tree so I could have some pics with them in their pillow case dresses Aunt Jan made. Macey's headband is nearly covering her face, but I wanted a shot of her little "snow bunny" outfit. :)
Aunt Jan also made the "First Christmas" onesie for Macey. So cute!

Today, Macey turns 7 months old! We just recently got her a big girl chair, so now she can eat her meals with the rest of us!

As the year comes to a close, I'm sad to see it go. 2008 has been the best year. Derrick and I shared another year of our lives together, and we welcomed a new baby girl into the world. It's been very monumental, but I'm excited to see what 2009 has in store for our family.

God Bless and have a safe New Year!

I just love looking at all four of those precious little girls. Seven when you count you, Taren and Taylor. I hope your family had a very Merry Christmas. I'm going to find some time to come see everyone. I might even venture out and try to bring Aden and Eric!

We just LOVE Miss Macey! She and Barrett seem to get along great! Would it be bad if Barrett dates both Macey and Camdyn? hahaha I think adult women would call that a "play'a" ha ha
