This post is going to be so long because I have not had time to update lately. I feel like I won't have time to relax and I won't get caught up with work until January at least!

The weekend before Thanksgiving my friend Robin got married in the metroplex. I took pictures for her and also got see some of my friends from college. It was so nice to see everyone that was there!

The next day Rachael was induced and had Micah. I still haven't met him, but I am driving out there next weekend to see them.

My parents came into town to help out while I was out of town for the wedding and stayed through Thanksgiving. They got lots of time playing with the kids and spoiling them. They got the kids a table to play at and eventually eat at, and some fun Christmas presents.

My dad also took some family pictures for us while they were in town. Here are some cute ones he got:

The kids favorite thing to do right now is play ring around the rosy. They drag each other around the house holding hands all the time. They also convince grandparents to play pretty often.

Aunt Gaffy was also here and we really enjoyed getting to see her.

And all of the other family.

We had a play date with their cousin Chloe and ended up on the news I hear.

Thanks to the grandmothers we also got a tree up.

hanging the first ornaments..

I also have the stockings hung, have watched Home Alone a couple of times and have wrapped some presents. I am excited about Christmas this year, but am also ready for the Holiday rush to be over so I can enjoy it more! I can't wait to see the kids open their presents this year. They are going to have so much fun. I LOVE Christmas!

Big Papa (Kim's dad) passed away early this morning. He was very sick so it was not a surprise but still very sad of coarse. Please pray for his family this weekend and next week. It is going to be a tough holiday season. I am so thankful that our kids got to meet him even though they won't have much memory of it. They will always remember the pictures. He was an amazing man with amazing character. Mason and Sawyer will hear stories of all of the pranks Papa did to Memaw as they grow up and I know that they will be some of their favorites.

I have been swamped with work! Pictures every night and so much editing. It is a blessing, but I will be glad when things slow down a little after Christmas.

The kids are getting so big eating at the big kids table now!

Sawyer has been really into helping me with everything lately. She like to sit on the counter with me while I put on makeup and she loves to help me cook as well. We made a pumpkin cake the other day, perfect for the season.

I haven't posted in a while, but I have been very busy with work! It is definitely Christmas card season. Plus I also just finished my new business blog, which I love.

And here are some pictures of the kids lately. They will be 2 in 2 months and I am starting to think about what to do for their bday party and am stuck. Any ideas??

A little post halloween fun. They put their costumes on all the time now or bring them to me and say please. Too cute!

Last week they learned to climb in their high chairs. I guess I will have to think about putting them at a kids table in a few months!
