Making a Mess!

We've been making a mess these days for sure. We did lots of cooking for our gifts this year. Thankfully, AnnieBoo loves to help in the kitchen. Here are some pictures of this years Gingerbread House. I think more candy went in her tummy than on the house if you can believe it. Please notice the random suckers strategically placed in various places around the house. I'm pretty sure AH was going for a modern theme as well as attempting to cover every inch of EVERYTHING with candy.
We had a blast :)

Elf on the Shelf

We started Elf on the Shelf today! It was hilarious :) MM told AnnieBoo about the Elf and introduced them. It took us awhile to figure out what name she kept calling him...We're pretty sure his name is Wynnton, we think. Who knows where she comes up with these names :)
G does bedtime and was supposed to read the cute little story...but he got so stinkin serious about the Elf. AH started to cry and get scared of the Elf who was going to go tell Santa when she was bad. Ha! Ha!
Mom finished reading the story and everything was okay again! We're excited to see where the Elf turns up tomorrow!

Callaway Gardens

We headed to see the lights at Callaway! AH is SUCH a girly girl. Christmas Music, Lights, hot chocolate, cotton was her perfect night! She just wanted to hug or snuggle and scream "Merry Christmas" out the windows all night long :)

Finding a Tree

We love our fun tradition with the Varners.
We like Blue Sapphire trees-They smell amazing the whole season and they don't drop their needles.

Thanksgiving was a whirlwind! We didn't take many pictures...sorry! Here are a few with G's family.

G loves to duck hunt and finally got to go out since Auburn was playing so bad. One of the ducks was banded in Maryland. I never really understood why that was a big deal, but I was assured that IS super cool. He was so excited!!!
