Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving... we sure did! We spent the day with my Great Grandparents and family in Charleston. Our morning started out a bit rough though...We planned to head out early this morning but when I went to wake up Kaelyn I discovered throw up everywhere, it was clearly oranges. ugh! We didn't hear her in the middle of the night or this morning so I am not sure when it happened. We were thankful she was okay and seemed to be feeling good. So much for the "bathe her the night before so we can get up and go" theory! haha Brian took the bedding and I took her to the bath. An hour later than we had planned we were on the road though and all was good. When we got there Kaelyn was pretty tired and wasn't hungry. We definitely weren't going to make her eat after this morning's events. lol We went into the pink guest room in my Great Grandmom's house that I have stayed in a few times. :) She climbed up in the full size bed and I read her a story and left her with a few books. I peaked in about 15 minutes later and she was out with her 3 books stacked neatly beside her. I couldn't believe she didn't get up and try to get out through the door. Maybe she is ready for her big girl bed after all. ;)
She woke up from a nice nap and ate some turkey! We all ate way too much!
Tonight we went to the famous Holiday Festival of Lights in James Island. I LOVE going every year we are there for Thanksgiving. I will blog about it soon with a few pics! I am sooo blessed and thankful for so much... my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, my beautiful baby girl and loving husband, friends who are like family, the fact that all my needs are met, and I could go on and on. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with family and friends! Here are a few pics from Grandmom's house.

Oh Christmas Tree!

I admit I am a tad bit crazy! We put up our Christmas tree last weekend. I just love all the holiday decor and think the longer it can stay up the better!! Kaelyn had so much fun decorating the tree this year! She was so excited and that made it so much more fun for us too! It was so sweet to see her holding Brian's ornaments he made as a child. (See pictures below) Here is a little clip of our growing girl!

Kaelyn's Thanksgiving Feast!

Kaelyn's class had their Thanksgiving Feast at lunch time today! They eat lunch at 10:30 so I took an early lunch and headed over. I debated this decision for a while. I didn't want her to be upset when Mommy had to go back to work, but I didn't want to miss out either! You can see in the one picture of us her eyes are filling up with tears...I was about to leave. She melts my little heart. :) They were all so cute eating lunch with their turkey hats! The kids, with help from the teachers) even made a pumpkin pie this morning so they could have it for dessert! It was kind of mushy but they thought it was great!

Friends :)

Kaelyn had such a good time with her friend that came to visit Saturday. The girls had so much fun and it's so cute that they are getting big enough to acknowledge each other and be real friends. hehe They ran all around and giggled a lot! Tooo cute!




Little Miss Manners!

Kaelyn has been doing very well with her manners so I wanted to catch her on video saying yes ma'am. =) This is from a couple of weeks ago... better late than never. ;)

Fall Costume Party!

This year Kaelyn was invited to her friend's house for a costume party on Halloween night. So a few hours after her school party we headed over to see her friends.
It was lots of fun! The kids were in a safe environment and had lots of treats and yummy snacks. They even played a few games! Afterwards, we stopped by Uncle David and Aunt Jacque's. Kae had tons of fun riding on their horsey and eating a cupcake from Aunt Jacque! Needless to say, we were all ready for bed when we got home!

Halloween Party!

I was able to leave work early on Friday and see Kaelyn and her little friends at their Halloween party at "school"! They were sitting there like little angels looking so grown up! Too cute!
