This week I took Lola to see Santa at the mall. We waited in line for about 30 minutes and she was so excited. Once it was our turn, we went up and talked to Santa, looked at his beard and glasses, etc. She was clapping and saying 'Ho, Ho'. All that changed as soon as I sat her in Santa's lap. She sat in his lap for less than 10 seconds, and somehow the lady snapped 5 photos. They were all bad, so I decide to choose the last one, which was the worst of the bunch. As soon as she started fussing I went to get her and she was excited again saying 'Ho, Ho'. Maybe next year!

Elmo Live!

A few Sunday nights ago we took Lola to see Elmo Live! She did great and loved the whole thing. We bought her a Sesame Street ball and some popcorn. The whole first half, she sat in her chair amazed. She clapped, screamed 'Elmo' repeatedly and danced the whole time. At intermission she did a lil running around and was all hyped up. So she stood up and danced the 2nd part of the show. I am not sure who had a better time, Lola or Andrew & I watching her have fun!….

O Christmas Tree

Lola was a little unsure about the whole 'buying a tree' process

Once we got home, she helped Dada put the new tree stand together

She loved looking at and playing with all the ornaments

And of course, she is all about trying to pull the ornaments off the tree

All done!

We had a great Thanksgiving in Atlanta this year. We just hung out at the house with family on Thursday and ate tons of wonderfull food. Friday we went shopping and that night cousin Beau came over to play with Lola. All around, it was a perfect holiday. We have so much to be thankful for!

A few weeks ago Andrew & I spent a fabulous week long vacation in Jamaica at Couples, Swept Away. It was a complete week of relaxation. We went to bed early, slept in late, spent the day on the beach, had a massage, and ate amazing food. Here are a few of the many photos from or trip.


Beautiful Sunsets

One afternoon we took an amazing catamaran cruise, it was so much fun

Andrew loved the slide off the top of the boat

We went swimming in the caves at Pirates Cove
