Sorry Girls, ya’ll keep me super busy!
My parents came up for Thanksgiving as we thought Holly and Drew were heading to SC to visit Drew’s parents. We went to Christmas at the Biltmore, the arboretums Winter Lights, had Thanksgiving and then my parents went back to Memphis. We busted out Christmas and only had two weeks left in AVL before we left for Memphis for Christmas. Instead of posting pictures, you can check them out on my Flickr account. The girls were also out of school for 5 weeks, from Thanksgiving till January 2nd. This is our first full week back.
We had a good time in Memphis, visited with family and friends. Michael flew in on the 22nd and on Christmas Day night got pretty sick. He finally went to the Dr. Tuesday and he had strep. So we didn’t do much visiting after Christmas. We celebrated Ella Kate’s 9th Birthday that Tuesday. She wanted to go to the trampoline park and jump. Then we headed to Booya’s for burgers and my parent’s house for cupcakes and ice cream.
The following Wednesday we headed back to AVL, as Michael had to be at work the next day. So for the 5 weeks we were off we did a ton of crafting, movie watching, baking, and toy cleaning out to make way for the new Christmas loot!
We tore down Christmas and got ready for NYE! Ella Kate’s 9th birthday! We took them to see Sing, grabbed birthday cupcakes, went to Claying around to paint an owl, and then headed to AVL Pizza for birthday dinner! She had a blast! They rented a movie and had a sleep over in EK’s room in Addison’s little tent! Both girls had a big, fun day!!
New Years Day we finished up homework and projects for school. Michael made his usual New Years feast of ham, greens, and black eyed peas.
Now we are full swing once again!
