Say "cheese"...wait...don't

It is the little things that are constantly on my mind.  For example I have been thinking about a Christmas card photo since literally September!  Of course there is never a perfect moment...someone gets sick, someone is getting teeth (EKC) etc.  I also didn't want a repeat of last year where we didn't have a photo together and we just had to scroll through iphoto to pick out "decent" photos...I swear when it came down to the photo and me and Andrew I almost chose a photo we had taken a few years back before his work Christmas party...

Well all of a sudden it is a few days into December, no card.  So bound and determined yesterday after church I did a mini photo op with the kids in the front yard...didn't go as planned...

In the end we had someone from our community group take our photo!  Also one of our good friends at group is always so gracious to hand down her little girl's clothes to EKC....her favorite find of the night!

Santa is coming! I know him!

Today I surprised the kids and took them to Barnes and Noble for story time with SANTA! Jackson refused to get within 20 feet of Santa and Eva Kate was just the opposite!  She sat quietly smiling like an angel in awe of the Jolly man!  In the end, with promises of playing on the, I mean THE train table he sat next to me and even got a candy cane from Santa.  The also enjoyed singing "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer".

Afterwards we walked around Ashley Park and awed at the giant Christmas tree!  Jackson then decided we should go see Mimi at of course we did:)
