Santa was soooo good to these kids! I'm not so sure Caraline deserved it though... she's quite the little "princess" sometimes. Caleb sent a letter to Santa for the both of them. He asked for a remote control car and an MP3 player while Caraline wanted a Cupcake Maker and new doll to be "Haylee" doll's sister (since there is NO WAY she's getting a real sister!). As you can see, they got everything they wanted and more. Her new doll, "Kaylee", is so darn cute and says the sweetest little phrases. Caleb is just 'too cool' with some of the music he's already downloaded like Oasis, Aerosmith, Hoobastank, Bush, and T.I. Spending time with family was very special and the best comfort food ever was soooo yummy! This marked the 3rd and 4th Christmases... two more to go.

Last weekend was spent at our house with Poppa, Gigi, Jalee, Chris, and Dev. It was very pleasant... the rotisserie chicken was really juicy! Classic holiday side dishes finished off our spread, not to mention, we went through a couple of bottles of good wine! The kids loved their gifts, but we had the most fun singing lots and lots of Singstar on the PS2. We even spent some time driving around to look at lights. The dancing light show with music was the way awesome. So, it was a really nice get-together!

We had so much fun at the 7th annual Hogg's Hullaballoo Christmas Party... Great company, great drinks, and great snacks. Although we didn't win one of the prizes that were given away every 30 minutes, we had a blast watching everyone enjoying themselves. Who knew teachers were so much fun! :) I do have to admit that the "Gingerbread Man" was not my friend (just a little stronger than I can handle). Now that I'm definately in the "Christmas Spirit", I am soooo ready for school to be out this week, so we can enjoy time with our families!

Thanksgiving was THE BEST! We had so much fun at Memaw and Papaw's house. We got to kiss all over baby Chase and eat lots of good food. We got up Friday morning to go check out all of the big sales. I already have almost all of my shopping DONE! After a yummy cookout at Mom and Chuck's, Drew and I snuck away Friday night, with Dustin, to go see "Four Christmases"... it was such a funny movie! We spent Saturday morning helping Memaw set up her tree of 'dolls', taking pictures, and having lunch with my Momma. The rest of the weekend, at home, was spent watching holiday movies under a blanket and putting up the rest of the Christmas decorations. We cannot WAIT for Christmas... our school break starts December 19th! Woo-hoo!!!

Thanksmas was so yummy and so cozy. We brought our cameras, favorite dishes, and gifts to exchange. We rocked out a little on Guitar Hero and watched the Grinch (a Thanksmas tradition). Dinner consisted of "Roast Beast", Spinach Madeline, Yorkshire Pudding, Corn Casserole, and of course the best desserts ever. :) Laura and Lynn helped get some awesome pictures, so we hope you like them!

He is oh so gorgeous!!! Chase was born on Friday afternoon. He weighed in at 8 lbs. and 6 oz. He is 19 inches long. His skin is so pretty and he looks like Jarrod and Jamikay both! I can't believe how much I love him already. His sneeze is precious, his quivering cry is precious, his little whimper is precious... he's just perfect! I can't wait to hug on him and kiss on him during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yay!!!

The party was a huge success... lots of friends, food, and drinks. All of the costumes were great! We had pirates, gods, Elvira, Jem, witches, and a baseball player. Some brave souls stepped up to the Karaoke plate. We sang a little Grease and Johnny B Goode as well as some new stuff like Bubbly, Umbrella, Fergalicious, and Hey There Delilah. After some hours around the fire pit, we finally called it a night around midnight or so.

Caleb and Caraline were absolutely adorable! She was the prettiest little witchling ever. We met Addie and Clayton in Whitehouse to trick or treat in a cute little neighborhood. All of the participation there was great! There was even a haunted house... very scary! Caraline was brave though-she wanted to go through it twice. After hours of getting way too much candy, we headed home to pass more candy out at home. We had some cute ones... especially Lydia's little Cinderella, Julie. :) Now for the costume party tonight... Yay!

We spent the day in Coppell at Grandpa Dana's house to celebrate Grandma Bonnie's 75th birthday party. Caleb and Caraline had a lot of fun running around and swimming with the other kids. Thank goodness for heated pools in October! :) It was good to see the cousins from Kansas too. Bonnie LOVED receiving a scrapbook made by all the grandkids, which Lynn and Matt orchestrated. We plan to go stay with Grandma Bonnie in Temple real soon!
