December was really busy - so this might take a few posts.... ENJOY!!!
The first weekend in December Corey took Harrison to Chattanooga so they could ride the Polar Express - HDG was REALLY excited - he even wore his Christmas PJS for the trip - here he is right before they left.

Corey said they barely got on 75 before he passed out!
Here's the inside of the train - I guess HDG wasn't the only one that wanted to wear his PJs
Corey and Harrison on the train

HDG watching out the window
Here's what he saw....
Corey said as soon as Santa sat down Harrison ran over and jumped in his lap - I guess he's not afraid of Santa!! :)
Here's "Aunt" Gretchen with Millie
Holiday get together with some of my high school friends!

Random picture of Corey working while holding MK
I was working on some gifts before Christmas and had some of my art supplies out... HDG decided he wanted to do a project too - so I gave him some paper and paints.... he loved it!
MK's hand looks so small compared to Corey's
MK and Corey napping

I told you she looks scared half the time - there's no telling what HDG is going to do next...
My adorable little reindeer!

and her crazy dad!
Next up was our annual trip to see Santa at Phipps. I knew this year was going to be rough with a 3 year old and an infant...
So remember from the Polar Express - HDG isn't afraid of Santa - however - he didn't like being told what to do... When they put him up on Santa's lap they wanted him to smile for a picture... but Harrison wanted to tell Santa what was on his list... it was not pretty!
They'd been trying to get a picture for so long - at this point I think Santa is considering choking HDG....
I LOVE this picture - Millie is yawning - and HDG looks bored to tears!!! :)
I think Harrison just looked up and realized where he was....
I'm pretty sure Harrison is actually trying to read here!!! :)
Next up was our trip to Johnny Rockets (upstairs in the food court)
Mimi with her kiddos
and Harrison's new favorite thing to do... play ANGRY BIRDS!!!!

more of November...

Next we headed off for Blue Ridge with Nana, Papa, and Aunt Laura -
Here's a picture of the house we stayed in...
and a view from the back porch
Nana burping MK - I love the face :)

Aunt Laura and HDG going out on an "adventure"
One night we had smores at our little outdoor fire place - the place had an outdoor speakers - so we got to listen to Christmas music while we smored - it was pretty much awesome!

One day we all went on a walk together - Papa carried Millie in her cacoon!
We stopped for Harrison to play on the swings for a while
here's a little series of HDG's crazy faces!

So before we left we took our family picture for my parents Christmas picture... this was my favorite out take!!!
This was Millie in her car seat on the way home!
A couple days after we got home from the mountains was Thanksgiving - so we spent some time out at my parent's house - Corey and Harrison made a Rice-Krispy treat train one night for fun!
Harrison eating his train!
The train!
This was one of the only pictures I took on Thanksgiving day - this is Harrison and his second cousin Jack - doing who knows what in my Aunt's kitchen....
Aunt Laura and Millie texting Erik
I love this picture!
One night Laura talked me into doing facials... haha!
Another night we rented "Just Dance" (the Wii game) - Here's Corey and Erik dancing!!!
Here are couple of the pictures I took of MK - just for fun!
So sweet!
