Christmas Going-On's

Christmas is upon us, my friends!!! Are y'all ready? What fun Christmas things have you been up to? 

 We headed over for a surprise visit to meet Minnie, Mickey, and all their Disney friends last weekend. It was so much fun & the H's were THRILLED to see who they were going to get to have breakfast with. AND it was breakfast for a good cause- a benefit for the American Cancer Society. 

Hazel was a bit scared of Minnie at first. She eventually warmed up.

 As you can see, Hutch didn't need any convincing to turn around and pose with Mickey.

He is a huge Buzz fan

Group pic with Buzz!

This was Hazel's expression just about the whole time we were there. She kept yelling & laughing, "Duckie!! Duckie!!" (referring to Donald & Daisy)

Pure joy, dontcha think?

Hutch felt the same way. :)

Afterwards, we headed over to see Gran to wish her a Merry Christmas. Brother & Sister love. Makes me smile. Although Hazel looks like she is up to no good. 

We headed over to Canton last night w/ my Mom for Christmas on The Square. Family pic! Too bad we already sent out Christmas cards! 

Hutch loved the carousel. Of course, he is a cowboy, so he feels at home on a horse. 

Bad lighting but I had to post this one. 

Carriage ride!

This morning we attended Hutch's Christmas program at school. It was so great!

Look at this sweet Mary & Joseph

Singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"

I thought this was really funny.

We have had a great time doing all things Christmas-y this year. We have watched our favorite movies (Christmas Vacation, Elf, Love Actually, The Family Stone, Rudolph, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Frosty, and The Charlie Brown Special), the gifts are wrapped, and we are ready! Hopefully this cooler weather that is supposed to be coming in tonight will make it feel a bit more like December should feel. 

Here's to hoping your December has been filled with love, friends, laughter, smiles, lights and wonderful memories!
