It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

As usual, the holiday season came and went in a flash.  I kept trying to remind myself to stop and remember that it was Carson's "first" everything, but that was hard with big brother running around.  Griffin really got into the holiday spirit this year.  Especially Santa Clause!  Though we did remember to include baby Jesus and he had fun playing with his little "natifidy" scene. 
The beginning of December looked a little something like this:
We had fun picking out our tree from Home Depot.  Griffin picked the tree and it was perfect! 

It was a beautiful day so we played outside while Dada got the tree all set up and inside.

We are pretending that there is snow to sled down.  This is how you sled in Georgia during a particularly warm winter!

Carson's first Christmas tree!
Griffin and I had fun one afternoon making/decorating a gingerbread choo-choo train!  It was a fun little project for us.  Of course his favorite part was eating all of the candy before it went on the train.  And, to be honest, I wanted him to keep his dirty little hands off my master piece.  Let's just say his candy placement wasn't what I had in mind.  We had fun working together, even if that just meant he ate the candy and I decorated the train. 

Notice the lack of candy decor. 

....and the candy kept disappearing!
A Christmas miracle - Griffin let Carson come in his Thomas tent with him and they actually "played" together!


We spent some time up at cousin Blake's house at the beginning of the month to help Blake celebrate his birthday!  Of course, we had to have a photo shoot of all the kids together.  Boo found these adorable GAP pajamas and ended up using a few of these photos for her Christmas cards.  Very cute cousins!

Leah and Carson - good luck keeping those bows in your hair pretty Leah!

Carson and Blake - staring contest?

That tongue is always out!
