Ending 2012

We spent Christmas in Georgia this year. We recently bought a new camera so I was much better about documenting our trip. In fact, I took a lot of pictures. These are just a few I thought I'd share of our visit.
We went to bear hollow and saw some Christmas lights and animals. There was also a visit from Santa and the kids roasted some s'mores. It was pretty chilly that night!
 We got to go to lunch with some friends - including Doyle and Chelsea. We love La Parilla! 
 We got a Merry-Okee microphone at a white elephant party. It plays Christmas carols and you can sing along in your regular voice or it can change your voice to an elf. Very amusing and the kids seemed to be entertained with it.
 Christmas Eve Grandpa read The Littlest Angle. Aren't the grandkids so cute in their footie pajamas?
and I read the Cajun Night Before Christmas.
 Sparklers before bedtime. 
 6am Christmas morning. 
 Santa brought a room full of balloons and stockings for everyone.
I think this is just such a cute picture. Had to include it of my adorable nephews.
 Some of our free time was spent bagging pecans. Best part was the pecans were cracked at Grandaddy's crack House. Made for a super easy time shelling them. Thanks Layne and Sarah for sharing!
 Christmas in Athens was exciting and it was fun to see the Christmas traditions Kevin grew up with. Thanks to all our family and friends who made our trip wonderful. We loved spending our holiday with you!

New Year's Eve my folks invited over some friends and we enjoyed a large pot of gumbo and fireworks. Had to picture this one particular firework "One Bad Mother".
 It was pretty decent and shot off a dozen mortars.
And of course we enjoyed the traditional Dillard's New Year sale, which apparently everyone knows about now. Rather than hitting amazing deals and having a relaxing day of shopping it was like Black Friday in one little spot. No good. And starting the 1st of 2013 it rained for over 2 weeks straight. It has been super soggy and gloomy so it was amazing to see the sun beaming today!
and this is our 100 post! Wow!

We wish everyone an exciting and memorable 2013!
