Christmas with the Caskeys

Every year we have dinner to celebrate Christmas with the Caskeys. We have been friends for a long time and love their boys like they are ours. This year we had yummy taco salads and chocolate cake and then we exchanged gifts. WJC went to his santa shop and spent the money he earned to buys gifts for his family members. CTW, OK, and I were included in his list. It was so fun to see what he picked out for us. We loved our gifts and OK is still carrying around her Fancy Nancy doll. Here are a couple pictures. Also, I included a video of WJC reading to OK. I can't believe he is old enough to read.

Cass's Birthday Celebration

My neice Cass(also OKW's best friend) turned 5 last Tuesday. She had a birthday party with her family and friends the Saturday before. On Tuesday we celebrated by going to lunch at Chick-Fil-A and then to see Princess and The Frog at the movie theater. It was OK's first trip and Cass's 2nd. I think my sister and I had as much fun as they did. It was a good movie and a wonderful time.

Decorating the Tree

The week of Thanksgiving we spent time decorating the house and putting up the much anticipated tree. I think OK will follow in her parents footsteps when it comes to loving Christmas. It was very exciting to watch her put the ornaments on with care and precision. She knew exactly where she wanted certain ones to go. We had fun looking at the one CTW and I made of her handprint and footprint for her 1st Christmas. Here are a couple of pictures.
