More excitment with Christmas in the house. The first picture is of Grace sitting in a Christmas decoration. The little wicker chair is suppose to be for a stuffed Santa but it's Grace's perfect size. She carries it around the house till she finds the perfect spot then sits.
Yesterday Maw Maw came by and brought her first two Christmas presents of the season. What a difference a year makes. There was no telling her how to open the present. She knew what needed to be done as she tore the paper off. She was so excited!
Another gift was a book called Elf on the Shelve. If you have not heard about it I am sure you will on this blog in years to come. Below is a picture of Grace with the new shoes Paw Paw bought her. She was so excited and had to put them on right away. This girl loves shoes and loves putting them on all by herself.
Grace sporting her new pjs.
Grace got her very own Christmas tree in her room. She thinks she is hot stuff!

This year I have two new things...one of course is my healthy pregnancy and Olivia coming in March. The second is friends! I have always had great friends but I have always kind of taken them for granted. But this year on Thanksgiving morning we all woke up at the lake to find out both my parents had gotten the stomach virus over night. So we loaded up the car with the dog, Grace and Hudson and headed home. On that trip home all I could think is, can we celebrate Thanksgiving just the four of us. No food for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, much less any food in the house. I then had a few friends names that popped into my mind. Could I really call and ask if we could join them? I did call and my friend took my family in, in a heartbeat. That's what friends are for. And I am very thankful for my friends.
I attempted to take pictures but did not get anything good. But I'll share what I did get.

My sister Carrie and her husband Eric went to Italy for Thanksgiving and my mom and I have been sharing my nephew Hudson. The Maddox family had a very busy weekend and Hudson went right with the flow. We had a great time with him and we are looking forward to spending the end of the week with him at Maw Maw and Paw Paw's lake house.
Hudson didn't want to get his picture made, he wanted to play with his stick.Grace taking making sure he was alright.
Lunch on Monday...you can tell Erin and Grace both had long weekends!This is from last week but I thought it was so cute.

We have been working on Grace a big girl room, well let me take that back, Chad has been working on Grace's big girl room. We went last week and found Grace a bedding set from Pottery Barn Kids. And one of the coolest traits my husband has is once he starts a project he works on it very hard to finish it. And he is a cute little handy man. The room is finished yet but you can get an idea.

Chad and I took Grace tonight to Snip-Its to get her first hair cut. Maw Maw met us there for the special event. I have to admit that I was the one scared. I had this fear that they would cut all her hair off or that she would pitch such a fit that we would have to leave half way through. BUT it went well. There was a wait so Grace was able to play around and watch others get their hair cut. When it was her turn she was excited and went right to sit in the seat. And then she realized that a strange women would be touching her head and the tears started. With the tears also came screaming. She did calm down a little by the end. They also listened to me and just trimmed it up. You can barely tell she got it cut but they took about an inch off the end. Hopefully it will start filling out now. All in all it was a very good experience!
