Merry Christmas!!

Stephen & Owen with Santa. Owen wasn't quite a fan this year!!

Rivertown Christmas

The first weekend in December Columbia has "Rivertown Christmas"! We participated in most of the activities and enjoyed every single one of them!

We were watching the flotilla!! Very cool!! (literally!!)

Breakfast with Santa!

Owen spotted Stephen in the Christmas parade!

Stephen, Owen, & me! (Little Stephen was WAY too busy to stop for a picture; were going to have to start making him!!)

Here he is finally...

Our carriage ride in the snow:)
What a wonderful weekend we had!! Really got us in the Christmas spirit!!

Christmas FUN!!

Owen LOVED the lights and the tree!! The above picture is kind of a preview of what it was like having a Christmas tree + a 10 month old under the same roof!! What fun times:)

Aunt Mere + boys watching Christmas shows! (You can tell their not happy with me for trying to get a picture!!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well... since I'm only a MONTH late on posting...I gota make these short! Thanksgiving was wonderful, it's my favorite holiday. No presents involved... just good quality family time! I have so much to be Thankful for and its a good time to think about all of those things that we take for granted day after day. We have a routine set up for Thanksgiving Day; lunch with my family and dinner with Stephens. I hardly took any pictures at all! Sad... I know! Stephen (big) & Owen took a 3 hour nap and Stephen Jr. played ALL DAY with his friends outside. So, needless to say there is not one family picture of the four of us. Better luck next year!

Grandad & his boys!

My Mom & hubby:)

Me, Meredith, & Owen

Jordan, Owen, & Mom

All the Grandchildren (We had to pile on John M. because he too had a long nap that day!)

This is the only picture I took while we were at Stephen's parents. There are 6 Grandchildren now so it gets quite hectic at family gatherings there!!
