Even with the best intentions...

I've tried so hard this past month to be the good little blogger and at least post updates every other day or so, but darn if this holiday season isn't spinning my life out of control a bit lately! I'm trying to get a better grip on that but not having much luck. sigh.

Among other things keeping us busy this weekend was our town's annual Christmas Parade that the bigs were in. I have to admit, it was stinkin' cute. Where else can you get boys scouts (the bigs), tractors, a baby doll baby Jesus, the homecoming queen and Santa appearing on a firetruck all in one place? I kid you not, but that story is a post in and of itself. I'll "try" for that tomorrow. ;)

We also spent some time writing our letters to Santa. It's so amazing now that all the boys can write their own list. Santa may have to do some seriously crafty interpreting for some though. Just sayin'. This photo of them "thinking" completely cracks me up. Carson kept looking around, putting his pencil to his mouth going "Hmmmm...what else do I want?" Brother and Dad had to get in on the action a bit. Too funny, but what a Christmas memory.

I hope this weekend has been a good one for you and yours, too!

P.S. To my friend, Lindsay...SO glad to hear of the girls' safe arrival today. Happy Birthday to them and Happy Mother's Day to you. Congrats, sweetie!

xo,
