Off to See Santa.

 The other day I went to the mail box and noticed a bright red envelope addressed to Charli Beth. Another party invitation I thought? But it didn't have a return address. So I quickly opened it, then got the oh crap feeling when I read that it was a letter from "The Desk of Santa." I ran inside, found the tape and taped that sucker right back up. When she arrived home from school I told her of the mysterious letter she had received and wondered if it was an invitation that she knew of. We opened it together and let the glitter fall all over the floor, then started reading.

I quickly asked her if she was getting a letter because she had been on the naughty list. Her face turned red and she said "Nooo Mom." When we finished reading the letter, she wanted to call and tell everyone that she was at the "top top" of the nice list.
...and why of course we all must recognize that Kevin Bacon is ecstatic for her as well.
(Thank you Groopdealz for these great letters!)
After church we headed to Nashville's Oprymills to BassPro because their Santa is suppose to be the REAL DEAL. I give the jolly fella huge props because he was pretty great. But I must give BassPro a huge thumbs down for their "Bass Pass" technique they have for kids to get tickets to see Santa. By the time we had arrived, all tickets had been give out so we had to spend 3 hours at the mall to then stand 45 minutes in line when he was free game.

We would of had one very upset girl if we would of left there without a photo. But instead we left there with one very upset Bryar.

 "Bryar you are so going to be on the naughty list."
You can go ahead and say "aww poor Bryar" but I laugh every time I look at these pictures. Seriously. I may be a mean Mommy but crying Santa photos are my favorite! I hope next year he cries just as hard.

Charli's letter for Santa this year included 3 items but she "knows that if you're like really really good, then he will bring you extra."

- Horse that she can sleep with (because she doesn't have 10 already or anything)
-Easy bake oven
-Bike without training wheels (and money for an ER trip just in case.)

..We shall see what she gets :)

I laugh at screaming baby on Santa's lap pictures, too! ;)

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.
