Merry Merry Christmas!

 Well, Christmas for us was last weekend with The Hollingsworths, yesterday with my mom, dad and brother, and today with our parents and siblings!  I am one exhausted momma.  But a blessed one indeed!
 Jesse's gifts from Santa are getting fewer and more expensive...go figure.
 Claire amazes me in her variation of interests...that girl loves basketball, legos, and all things girly....

 Our boy keeps do his golf clubs!
 This is her 3rd basketball....she literally wore the other 2 out!
 She has discovered Roominate and loves it!!!
 Jesse with a grown up robotics kit....we shall see how that goes!
This one is usually behind the camera...not today!

I am blessed beyond words for my husband and all he does for us.  I am lucky that I have kids and family who truly understand what this day is about....Merry Christmas!

Hollingsworth Christmas

 Well, we celebrated Christmas with Lance's parents and siblings and all their children this weekend and just had a blast!  We started the evening with a fantastic dinner at Side Porch, followed by presents, crafts, and trivia!  We took our annual goofy picture...although Lance  stayed the same in both shots....big suprise there! We really treasure these moment together!!!

It's That Time Of Year!!!

 Hard to believe the wonderful season of our Christ's arrival is upon us!  We kicked off the season with the SFA Breakfast with Santa and The Nutcracker!
 Claire's yearly obligatory Orpheum picture!
 We decided to visit The Peabody Lobby before heading to The Orpheum....couldn't even get the entire tree in the shot!  So big and beautiful!
 The made from scratch gingerbread Christmas Village at The could smell it throughout The Peabody Lobby!
 Before the show.....not wanting to show those braces off apparently!

On Sunday Lance's firm hosted Alastair Bruce from Downton Abbey to come and give the most interesting talk to kick off the 6th season....Had a blast and can't wait for the final season!
 Today was SFA's Christmas Program....Claire was lovely in the choir and was all smiles at 6:45 this am before leaving.....
Lots and  lots more to come!!!
