I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted. Jingle Jubilee definitely threw me for a loop as I spent well over 24 hours living at the civic center volunteering. It was a great success, but I'm so glad it's over!!! No more meetings, projects, or stress!
Now it's time to get ready for Christmas!! Yippee!! We've already decorated our tree, the house, and we've already started our shopping!
But before I begin to blog about Christmas happenings, I need to blog about our Thanksgiving...it was great and we have soooooooo very much to be thankful for!!
It may sound silly, but I'm thankful for the artwork that Camp brings home from preschool. Nothing makes me happier! I've already started a Rubbermaid bin of his artwork so I can save each piece...especially the holiday art!! It will be fun to bring it out each year. I'm ready for some preschool made Christmas ornaments!! ;)

I'm also extremely thankful for this little fella...I still sometimes can't believe he's mine. He is so precious...he's hilarious, he's sweet, and he's a mess!! I wouldn't trade him for anything and Adam and I both know how blessed we are with this wonderful little boy!!

We spent our Thanksgiving in Mexico Beach at my Uncle Oscar's father's beach house...Uncle Oscar is married to my Aunt Vicki...Fred's sister. :) My mom and Chandler came down from Blue Ridge (fred was at work :(...wah wah). There were 20 of us and we definitely had a house full!! It was lots of fun and I enjoyed visiting with my cousins that I don't get to see as much as I'd like to!

Did I ever mention that Ellie was adopted by my Aunt Vicki and Uncle Oscar? Last April we decided we couldn't keep her any longer and V&O decided they were finally ready to accept the challenge. Ellie is an alpha dog...as is Annabelle so they just didn't mix well. We were constantly on edge waiting for Ellie to fight with Annabelle and we couldn't risk Camp getting in the middle of it. Ellie was also a bit neurotic...she was CRAZY!! We even sent her to a dog training boot camp and the boot camp lady told us we needed to put her down because she was so wild! Well, obviously we knew that wasn't an option so we are thankful that my Aunt Vicki and Uncle Oscar took her in. They have four acres and live on the Chattahoochee River...and have no other dogs. It's a dream world for Ellie! We hadn't seen her since April and WOW...she's a changed dog!! We even asked for her back, but V&O said no! ;) haha...we aren't that crazy.
Ellie did remember us and she spent a lot of the day right by Adam.

An attempt at a sibling picture with Bebe as the photographer! :)

It was HOT on Thanksgiving so we had to roll up Camp's shirt and pants! :)

Me and my fabulous husband...I'm soooooo extremely thankful for him!! I am one lucky girl!
Camp sure loved all of the extra attention!!

It was a great Thanksgiving and I'm so glad we were able to head down to the beach to celebrate.
