....at the Pearce household. The tree is up, the stockings are hung and MOST of the outside lights are up. This year Dan decided to put a little music and flash to our outside lights. It is totally going to drive the neighbors crazy. Actually there are three families that are doing the lights and sounds this year (in our double culdesac) ~ the other poor neighbors are probably ready to SCREAM! Our house will probably look very dull compared to the others. We only have white lights but they are perfectly straight and measured out - haha. Wanted to post a few pictures of what we have been up to lately.
Emily is amusing her mommy by pretending to get into the Christmas spirit (what is her problem - so what if it was the first part of November).
Anna Kate did enjoy decorating the tree (well, for all of about 10 mins).....she picked out her favorite ornament (every single one she picked out was her favorite)
And here I am trying to make my own Christmas picture this year.....I didn't make a picture appointment in time and now they have nothing until after the first of the year. Oops...
Hope your season is starting off great ~ Can't wait to get all those Christmas cards with bright and cheery faces!
Today my dear, sweet, only SISTER celebrated her 29th birthday (wink, wink) ~ she looks pretty darn good to be 29 and 3 little ones. Gosh I wish she lived closer to me. I love, love, love talking to her on the phone (every day -- okay Dan, several times a day) and love it when she visits. She always makes me laugh and always has time to listen! She is such a strong person (gets it from our Mother) and always seems to manage to hold her head high when the going gets tough! Happy Birthday, Aunt Cole...We love you and miss you so very much!
I absolutely LOVE, LOVE monogrammed things and anything with the girl's name on it. Check out these cute, cute plates ~ http://www.laplates.com/. I can't wait to order the Christmas plates for the girls.
"Where do you get that curly hair from?"......it's the million dollar question. My hair is wavy but nothing like AK's. D's is thick and straight. Emily's is thick and straight. My mother's brother had curly hair and my mother-in-law's dad did too...was it like AK's....I don't think so. I think it was God's way of covering up her scar from her surgery....
Em wants curly hair and AK wants straight - go figure!
Life is just full of uncertainties. Some times you just wonder why things happen but ultimately know that God is in control and there is a reason for everything. As my Mother once told me "God doesn't close one door without opening another one". How true but still NOT always easy!
As you tuck your little ones in to bed tonight, kiss them and hold them tight.....I'm sure these two Mama's would want just one more night to do that & I can bet the Daddy's would want it even more...
Yes, I'm really doing this. After following several blogs for a year or so, I have decided to start one. I will enlighten you about the happenings of two sweet girls, their puppy ~ lucy, their mommy and daddy.
I am a mommy to two sweet girls (ages 13 & 7), a Peds ER nurse and a wife of 17 years. In my spare time, I am a short order cook, maid, laundry mat, taxi driver and nurse-maid (to just name a few). I have always lived in the South. I grew up in a small town in North Georgia - Chickamauga and moved to the Atlanta area to attend Kennesaw State. I have 5 siblings ~ 4 living and one watching over all of us from Heaven above. I like all things Southern ~ antiques, monogrammed stuff and sweet tea! I love reality TV, the medical channel, playing tennis, Sonic cherry cokes w/ extra cherry syrup, People magazine, shopping, the colors pink and brown (am a Phi Mu), and spending time with my family. Our girls have one little furry creature, Lucy, that is the sole responsibility of their parents :).
