December 2017

I’m not quite sure how we are already at the end of the month but I am certainly happy it’s the end of the year. I haven’t enjoyed very much of 2017 (except our wonderful news about our new precious princess) and honestly I have been waiting for the year to be over.  This month however flew by and I sort of lost track of time. Thankfully I was ahead of the game on my Christmas shopping but that was about it. 

Mom was in the Christmas spirit and she and Charlotte did lots of fun things, like making cookies! Charlotte loved being able to put as many sprinkles as she wanted on them. 

Forrest took Charlotte to the Gadsden Christmas parade. She still talks about seeing the fire truck and fire “puppy”. That night we went to highlands bar and grill to celebrate Forrest’s birthday! He does so much for us and we love him so! 

Charlotte was in a Christmas program at school! She sang jingle bells and Rudolph the red nosed reindeer with her class. She was so proud and watching her just warmed my heart. It also made me miss my daddy so much because I know he would have made a huge deal of her performance. 

Afterwards she celebrated with a party with her sweet class. 

2k Christmas! 

The next day we had a surprise: snow!!!! 

Charlotte loved eating snow balls—it was hilarious!! We played with all of our neighborhood friends and even had dinner with Mark and Gina and emily Ann. It was such a sweet day! Charlotte thought it was Christmas. 

The next day we celebrated my sisters upcoming wedding with a Christmas shower in Birmingham. She got lots of Christmas loot and I got to eat lots of party foods! 

Later that week we went to see santa at Christmas at the falls! It’s one of our favorite events. Petting the animals, riding the train, and seeing all the lights always make us smile! 

We also went to see the lights at river country campground, which c has enjoyed since her first year! 

Another precious event this month was Charlotte’s sugar plum tea party at ballet. She got to show us a little dance and enjoy a party with her friends. I was so so proud of her and you could tell she was proud of herself! 

Flowers from daddy. She said “I’m married!” 

We also had a super fun kids supper club at the Yother’s. These kids hardly sat still!! 

Unfortunate Charlotte and daddy came down with the stomach virus and we lost a week of fun, but everyone was well and ready for Christmas Eve!! We started the day with pancakes and pajamas at Uncle Davis house and he and Aunt gumi gave her her most coveted Christmas present of the year: a pink train and train tracks!! 

Terrible picture but that night Charlotte daddy and sonny put out the food for the reindeer and Charlotte says she saw Santa’s sleigh in the sky behind a blinking red roudolf nose! 

Christmas morning was so so much fun! Charlotte got some great presents and was so excited. Her little smile was magical and she would scream “thank you santa!” 

We went and opened presents at momsies next and she loved visiting with m and Uncle Roy and Ann. 

It was a sad and hard day without my daddy but being with Charlotte and seeing her happy face made it a lot easier. 
It was a big month for Charlotte— she got potty trained! She really just was ready and she did it! She is so so proud of herself! We will have a little break from diapers before baby sister arrives! And speaking of baby sister, Charlotte is so precious about her. She wants to look at my belly and she will lay her head on me and snuggle her. She wants to feel her move and will talk to her and tell us what she “says” back. I love these sweet precious times!!
