Happy 80th Birthday Papa!

Okay, so this has to be one of my all time favorite photographs! Probably because I just love my Papa so much, and Olivia is pretty darn cute in this picture too. Papa actually did beat Olivia to blowing out the candles! And in case you were wondering, it was a chocolate cake!!! Yum!!

Oh Christmas Tree

Our family began putting up our Christmas tree over Thanksgiving while Zac and I were in college. So this past weekend, we went and got our tree and did the annual tree decorating. As you can see from the pictures, we were also watching the Panthers' game while decorating the tree. My grandparents, Nanny and Papa, also came over that evening for a belated Thanksgiving dinner since my parents worked on Thanksgiving day.

My brother, Zac, hanging his trains.

My infamous handmade ornament from elementary school with Rudulph the Red Nose Reindeer (my family tells me it looks like the reindeer is throwing up, but it's just his nose is shining so bright!).

A look at some ornaments up close...

Meredith and Sam gingerbread ornaments! My mom made ornaments like this when she was in nursing school- so I thought it would be fun for me to do the same thing!

Nanny and me.

Roscoe is being a good boy, while Papa hid his ball in his shirt pocket.
