Hampton meets Santa

and boy was it ANTI-climatic.

Poor Hampton was sooo sleepy.  We got there two and a half hours before our "picture time," which is a whole story of itself!

and after a little bit of stimulation...this is what we got :-)

I have finally made it to my Christmas Vacation...Hallelujah, Praise The Lord.
Seriously, I'm exhausted.  I have to admit, being a working mom during the holidays is tough stuff.  

Dear Brent, All I want for Christmas is to be a stay at home mom !  Ha!

A Christmas "Happy"

My mom is the queen of "Happies."  And even if we make fun of her for this sometimes....Who doesn't love a "little happy?"  Even if it is say....a heart shaped waffle maker (which was one of her bigger "happies").  Mom, I'm proudly following in your footsteps.

Aren't these perfect for the teacher, mailman, or neighbor on your list.  You could fill them with anything....Hershey kisses or golf tees.  This particular one is going to our financial advisor.  Got to keep the "money man" happy, right?  

Who else is on your list?

The Party

I am not a party planner.  I have see a ton of ideas and always think to myself, that would be so much fun...but never follow through with them.  The main reason...because it is way easier to just show up to a party (worry free) instead of making sure everything is taken care of for said party :-)  Another reason is that you have to plan ahead and be organized.  We are more of the "same day, let's cook out, good idea, see you tonight" kind of couple!

Well, I finally did it.  
The Party:  Meet at our house for drinks and snacks.  Head to Dancing Bear Lodge for dinner and dessert.  In Style, may I add.  And then after drinks at our place with fire pit (that part wasn't so much planned).

Happy 30th Birthday, Brent!

Yay!  I finally did it and IT'S OVER (I mean that in a good way, of course)!
