We three kings...

Here is RJ as a wiseman last night in his school Christmas program. I don't think he actually sang a note during the 5 songs his class sang, but he did nail the wiseman part. Plus, he looked pretty cute at the same time. Cousin Sawyer had the part of Mary and she did a great job! We celebrated in the gym after their performances.

Party Time!

RJ's 5th birthday is finally here! So hard for me to believe... I'm still trying to grasp all that... my little boy is 5 (well, not officially until the 21st). He had a blast at our local jumping place - Party Central. He had lots of friends to play with and lots of presents. He was bouncing off the walls all day just waiting for his party to get here... he literally wore himself out and fell asleep on the way to the party. But he didn't miss a beat and woke up energized and ready to play!

Breakfast with Santa

We headed to the Birmingham Zoo on Saturday morning, bright and early! The kids had fun getting to see Santa up close! Even though the kids were shy with him at first, Santa was great with the kids and they eventually warmed up... except maybe Payton... just keep looking you will see for yourself!

This was about as close as she wanted to get...

She did wave Bye to him!
RJ finally warmed up.... a little. I'm sure this picture will be priceless in the future!

Quick hello...

So much going on... we are in full swing of the month of December around here. Just a few pics to share, hopefully more to come soon.

On the way to the SEC Championship game... not a fun outcome, but definitely a fun trip!

Sorry for the not-so-great picture, but this is the return on Santa's 'Elf on a Shelf' "Candy Cane" to the Brooks household. This silly little elf gets into all kinds of mischief each night after the kids have gone to sleep. He appears on Dec 1 and leaves after Christmas to go back to the North Pole with Santa. Candy Cane took all of our stockings off the mantle and played with some toilet paper before falling asleep in RJ's stocking. (RJ loves this surprise every morning... this morning he was in our fridge! RJ could hardly stand it!)

Watching the Christmas Parade... the girls are tucked into blankets and jackets behind these tough boys (RJ was really just getting close in hopes of getting some candy thrown to him!) Notice the similar pose they are both in?

This little girl loves some food... opposite of her brother, but oh so funny! She also loves chinese lo mein noodles... she can slurp them up like nobody's business. She was quite tickled with herself at this!

Birthday roses... these gorgeous 2 dozen roses were from my wonderful, giving, and thoughtful husband.
