Sunday's in December

The past three Sundays I have taken a few pictures before heading out the door to church. I love this time of year for so many reasons. One being that the Christmas tree makes a great backdrop for pictures.

I had never used my timer until this day. I was testing it out on B.

Thanksgiving 2011

Here are the pictures from our Thanksgiving weekend. I just realized that I had yet to post them. I didn't take many during the course of the weekend but here they are.

 Papa and Granny got Baylee an LSU pillow pet. That brings her to a total for 3 pillow pets.

Goddard's 2nd Annual Christmas Program

My favorite ornaments

Friday night we put up and decorated our Christmas tree. I stole the idea for this post from this blog. :) Here are some of my favorite ornaments on our tree.

My friend Hannah bought this ornament for Carl and I last year. It's big, colorful and I love it!
 I think this one came from my friend Holly one year. Everyone knows how crazy us Louisiana people are about our Tigers!
 Penny, a sweet lady that Carl works with bought this from Gatlinburg before Baylee was born. 
 I picked this one up from Hallmark the same year Carl and I were married.
 My Daddy bought this for us the same year we were married and had moved to Tennessee. I guess he didn't want us to forget our roots. :)
 I have had this ornament since I was in 5th grade. My best friends grandmother bought this for me from a craft fair we went to in Natchez, MS and I have had it on my tree every year since then.
 The next two were given to us from Carl's grandmother the year Baylee was born.

 I just love how this one sparkles.

When we got out of bed this morning a little elf was in Baylee's stocking. She spotted him and gasped and said "Look Mom, a gift from Santa." Baylee named her elf  Freddy. She thinks it is the coolest thing ever that she has her very own elf.
