Hometown Christmas

Saturday was the local Christmas parade that my family and I alway head out to then come back to our home for chili, soup, and snacks. We always have the best time with out family, not to mention the good food. I finally made the red velvet cake balls (first time was Thanksgiving) and they have become a huge hit around here. They are way to sweet for this girl though! Charli loved the parade, most of all the marching band & the fire trucks. Her face just lit up everytime something she liked would come by. Although, if you are from a small town fire trucks, horses and the marching band is almost the entire parade. A little redneck, but we enjoy it!

Last week we attended the Hometown Christmas, which was held on our square. Not many people showed up for the due to the weather being so cold, but we bundled up and headed up there so that we could get a few discounts at the local stores.

How fun, I love your small town. I sort of wish I lived somewhere like that. It seems so much more personal there. I'm glad you guys had a good time.

aww... I'm glad you all braved the cold to make some fun memories. I am dying to go to the Blackbird Boutique! Looks too cute. Speaking of cute, your family pics are beautiful and I love the pink Christmas tree. I think I'll add one for K next year!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
