Christmastime is here!

This week we visited McAdenville with my parents. Judah had fun sitting on Papaw's lap checking out the lights.

Another day my mom and I went to Southpark to do a little shopping and so Judah could get his picture taken with Santa. He didn't quite know what to think about him and just sat on his lap wide-eyed. After he got down he kept turning around looking at him and reaching his arms out like he wanted to go back.

Yesterday we went with my mom and Kelly Allen and her kids to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte. We'd been wanting to go for a while and we heard that they had some fun Christmas stuff for kids. We got there early and did the tour of the Library, which consisted of a talking cow named Bessie, a scavenger hunt (which Will enjoyed), several videos of Billy's life and some great exhibits. Thomas was disappointed that there wasn't really an actual LIBRARY so he could peruse through Billy's favorite books. :) Oh well. It was still pretty fun.

Our favorite, the International Exhibit

The kids enjoyed the live manger scene and the horse and carriage ride. We only had to wait 2 HOURS with 3 kids under 7 and no stroller. Lesson learned on that one.

Today Judah and I went to visit my friend Stacy and her beautiful son Will. He is such a cutie and I loved seeing him and watching Judah run around. I think they had a good time "playing" with each other.

Stacy has a fun blog if you want to check it out. I love that I have other friends that blog too!

Merry almost Christmas!
