We had the pleasure of being invited to The Sapps for the night before the night before Christmas. We had so much fun. Santa came! Can you believe it?! The night before Christmas Eve? Wow! We felt so lucky to be there! I loved these pictures that April D took. I forgot my camera! She did a great job I thought!
The whole family!
I must confess that I LOVE crying Santa pictures! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!The mamas! Aren't we something else? Who is the tart on Santa's lap?! Just Kidding April! You know I love you! I have tons of pictures from Christmas that I want to share but it will have to wait! This house is a wreck! I love Christmas and we had such a good one! Hutton was precious and so were the other four babies! Can't wait to share!
Tuesday night we had big plans. I mean BIG- at least to the kiddos. We went to see The Big Guy. Let me start by saying that I usually have a picture in my mind of what special times like these will be like only to turn to David midway through and say, "why do we bother?". Ususlly never turns out like I planned. Somebody is mad or gets hurt or fighting breaks out. Well- I am so happy to say that my vision was not ruined and it was a FUN night! It started out at Build a Bear. The heart support group took all the cardiac kids and their siblings to build a bear and let them each build their owm bear and get an outfit for it. What a TREAT! Then, they took us on over to eat pizza! The kids were in heaven! So fun! We decided that since we were all at the mall, we should go ahead and do the whole Santa thing. Here is the whole gang!Cooper J isn't too big for Santa.
Reagan telling Santa she wants an orange bike. What?! Orange?!
Mimi was a little shy. She told him she wanted a Baby Alive.
Sweet Mary Lawson told Santa she wanted world peace. Just kidding! She wants some new Uggs!
I was surprised that Hutt didn't cry. I was a little disappointed. I LOVE crying Santa pictures!
Here is HUtton with a bunch of bears.
It was so much fun. We are soaking up memories of Hutton's first Christmas at HOME! Its going to be a good one this year!
Good food- Good Company- Good times! This year was a very laid back kind of year at my parents. It was such a great day and we had so much fun. Here are a few images of what our day was like....

We sure had a lot to be thankful for this year. We have had Hutton home in Tennessee for a year now. We have been blessed with many things but realize that family and friends is what its all about! Hope you all had a good one!
Oh- where to start?! I've been falling behind on my blogging! So much to catch you up on! There is just no way. So- lets just start fresh. ..
Yesterday. It was Grandparents Day and Thanksgiving feast. Whew! I get exhausted just thinking about it again! It was a SUPER busy day and cowboy boots was not the best choice for all that running around. (neither were the Paige Jeans I was wearing but thats for another blog =) )
Let me start by saying that I have more pictures of Mimi because I helped in her class. So here goes- Grandparents day/Thanksgiving Feast 2008
Mrs. Prine's sweet class sitting down to the feast that they had spent the day before preparing.

Cooper and ML hangin in the fifth grade room
The girls with Nana and Papa and Oma and Opa And of course, the day ends like this. At least one having a fit about something!
All in all, I thought it was a precious day and I know we have so much to be thankful for but I have to mention how thankful we are for CAK. I love it that they could sit down to their feast and thank JESUS for their blessings!
Okay... so I took a ton of pictures but I have no patience for blogger to download them BUT I did want to share a few (okay, quite a few) so here goes- Our Halloween Night.Let me start by telling you that Hutton had two costumes. The adorable tutu is from her best beau, Dylan Urbanick up in Pennsylvania. She looked sooooo adorable! The headband flower was bought in Haddonfield. She HATED the headband. Of course, I made her wear it for a few pictures and although she wasn't crying in all of them, this is what they mainly looked like...
So we had a quick wardrobe change and she was MUCH happier! Cute little pumpkin! This was Parker Dunn's old costume. Precious! Just to think that last year, Hutton was the same color as the pumpkin, well- its awesome to see how far this little philly has come!
Then for the "passing around" part-Everyone took their turn lovin' on Hutton. Although it wasn't her first Halloween, it might have well have been. We were soaking up every moment with that sweet babe!I can't believe I am posting this picture. Can you tell how TIRED I was?!
Jimmy Dunn getting some love in-April Dunn wasn't gonna miss out either!Em Tanner showed in her super cute tee! (http://www.emtannerdesigns.com/)Don't forget about Daddy! He needed some Halloween love too!Then finally on to her nurse, Miss Robyn who took over Hutton duty so we could all go out trick or treating! But not before we got a shot of Hutt with her bff Maggie Dean Murray- (who was a devil who looks like an angel!)Here everyone is getting ready to get on the hayride-'cause..." thats how we roll!" (that ones for you April)Parker and her sweet mama!Maggie and her sweet mamaSweet Hildy and her mama (ha ha! You know I love you Em!) The guys Look at my sweet Hadly Anna! Oh- I just LOVE this girl! ( I always love the mean ones!) Of course we had to stop at Oma and Opa's house. Cooper J. getting loved on by his Opa- and guess who was there "monkeying" around... my nephew, Jack!The girlies- Claire. Haddie, and ML the big guys- Guyer, Cooper, and Haydn (aka Micheal Phelps)
and finally, the night ended with a little candy sorting and smores! I have no idea what "rainbow skeleton" is doing here. That is Taylor who made up his very own costume. He had the vision of a skeleton that was different colors so he colored it all by himself. He is taking orders for next year if you are interested!
