Starting the new year off with a bang!

Baylee has never popped fire works...EVER! After the Randall Family Christmas we headed to a fireworks stand in Vidalia. PawPaw spent quite a chunk of change to literally watch it go up in flames. The girls had such a good time and well, I think he enjoyed it more than they did.

Isn't she beautiful?!?! 

They love each other!

Randall Family Christmas

For the first time in eight years I made it to the Randall family Christmas. Carl and I made it to the first family Christmas after we were married but we haven't been to one since. Sad I know! Baylee went back to Louisiana with my parents after Christmas and I made the drive a few days later. There were a lot of people unable to be there, as is every year, but I am so glad that we went.

Nathan and Baylee....Baylee adores him!! I'm pretty sure she would have went right home with him. 

I am hoping that we can make it back next year. It is hard living so far from family that you love and adore so much as I do these people!

On the eve of Christmas.....

We spent Christmas in Tennessee this year. We try and alternate spending one Christmas at home in Tennessee and the following in Louisiana. I love going "home" and seeing extended family but it is not the same as going to bed on Christmas eve in your own bed. My parents and sister made the trip to Tennessee to spend Christmas with us. My brother had to work so he couldn't make it. They drove up on Dec. 23. Baylee was asleep for the night by the time they made it to the house. When she woke up on Christmas Eve they were here!

My Daddy, a lover of all things that deals with the outdoors, wanted to go to Bass Pro Shop. We headed out the door pretty early and did a little shopping. Afterwards we went to Opryland Hotel to see all the Christmas Decorations.

Blurry family photo....thanks Mamma! ;)

After we left the hotel we headed back to the house to change clothes and loaded up again and went to church. I didn't get a single picture :/ ......After church we went BACK to the house, changed a 3rd time and headed to the bowling alley...a Brewer family tradition.

Baylee was showing everyone the proper technique in rolling the bowling ball. It was quite hilarious!


It was after 9:00 when we left the bowling alley. We quickly put on our pj's and in no time she was down for the count.
