Tonight I took Baylee to see Santa Claus. For weeks she has been talking about Santa bringing her, and I quote "toys and presents and candy and Woody and Buzzyear". In that exact order. I haven't taken her to see Santa the past two years because she has been absolutely horrified of the big man dressed in red. We have been talking about Santa for sometime now. I decided today that I would take her to see him after her nap. Finally around 4:30, after a 3 1/2 hour nap, I took her to see Santa. She was a bit shy at first but after bribing her with a sucker and a train ride she finally obliged. Here is a little bit of their conversation.
B: "Hey do you have a sleigh?"
Santa: "I sure do. It's at the North Pole. It's much too big to fit in here (mall).
B: "Where's the reindeer?"
Santa: "They are at the North Pole too."
B: "Hey can I go to the North Pole wiff you?"
Santa: "Noooo you have to stay here with all the other children so we can finish making the toys for Christmas."
Mommy: "And it's much too cold at the North Pole" :)
Santa: "So what do you want for Christmas?"
B: "Ummmmm, toys, and presents, and candy, and Woody and Buzzyear"
Santa: "Oh ok you want candy in you stocking?" (probably didn't understand the rest of what she said)
B: Interrupting him while talking "Hey is this your house?" (a large cardboard cutout of a house where the pictures were being taken)
Santa: "Yes this is my temporary house where I am staying until Christmas Eve."
That is pretty much the gist of it. She has gone on and on about Santa since getting home.

A couple of weeks ago we had Student Crusade at our church that ran from Sunday night through Wednesday night. Carl and I volunteered to help out each night wherever needed. It was a pretty exciting event and was as enjoyable for the adults as it was for the teens. The last night of the crusade Damian Williams (Tennessee Titan) and Kevin Mawae (former Titan and LSU TIGER) gave their testimony. That night drew BIG numbers!
Before we headed out Sunday night we snapped these pictures.
Baylee's fine photography skills

A few weekends ago Baylee and I headed to Murfreesboro for a Fall Festival. There we met up with Leah, Chad and their kids, and also Hannah and Annabelle. At the fest they had a couple of inflatables that were a big hit with the kids.
There was a firetruck for the kids to explore and play in. Baylee and Annabelle really enjoyed this. I didn't think we were ever going to get them out.
Kami and Luke were not too thrilled about being confined to their stroller.

Cute little Tigers!
Baylee showing EVERYONE her princess panties. Oh joy!
Having a yummy, and MESSY I might add, treat.
Never in a million years did I think Baylee would want to get her face painted. She proved me wrong. She was VERY upset when we washed it off before bed that night.

After lunch we headed back to the house to get ready to watch the LSU vs. Florida game. The girls played outside a bit before kickoff.
Leah, Chad and the kids came over as well to grill and watch the game. These are the ONLY 2 pictures I took during the night. Look at the BEAUTIFUL grin!
My BEST Friend!!!!
What a great day! Not only because the Tigers pulled off another win (whoo hoo), but because we got to spend a day with family and friends.
