O' Christmas Tree

This is my favorite time of year! I love all the pretty lights, the music, red and green everywhere! The Santas, excited kids, family and friend get together. I really just love everything about it. This year is a little extra special for Al and I since it is our first Christmas in our new house. We don;t have a lot of decorations yet, but for now I wanted to post a few that we have done. I am especially happy with my tree. You can't see it very well in this picture, but I love it. My mom will be here tomorrow night to make everything else look good!!!

I love my Houndstooth Santa!!

State XC Meet!

This post is to brag on my cousin Sam Lawson and he awesome year of Cross Country! He is a 7th grader at Brooks High School and began this year running with the Junior Varsity team. He did so awesome that after the JV season was over he was pulled up the Varsity team to run with them. Today they ran in the State Tournament in Moulton at the Jesse Owens park. He did so good, out of 7 7th graders running in 4A he came in 4th and he came in 83rd out of 138 runners in the entire classification. I am so proud of him and can't wait to watch him again soon!

This is Sam, his younger brothers (Chase and Taylor) and myself after the run!

Congratulations Brooks XC!!
