Almost Christmas!

We have had a busy fun filled Holiday season. One of my favorites of all time. So many parties, events, activities and time spent with family and friends.

One of my favorite things that we do each year is the Happy Birthday Jesus party that we co-host with our friends the Strellers. We invite all of our friends and family to come to a gymnastics gym and we let the kids run wild...then we bring them all together for a cupcake and a little lesson about the real reason we celebrate Christmas. It is so wonderful to hear what these kids of all ages talk about Jesus and how real and raw their love and understanding of him is.

Here are my boys right before the party began. They were rolling around and wrestling on the floor.

We went to our buddies, The Peters' annual Titus Lights Tour this past weekend. Too. Much. Fun. is pretty much all I should divulge about this adventure. This picture pretty much sums it up. And yes, we are wearing afros.

This is when the party first began and its a pic of me and my Natalie!

Jackson and I went to the Thunder vs. Spurs game this past Monday. So fun!!!

Jackson also was WAY WAY WAY overdue for a haircut. Seriously, look at this mullet!!!!!!

This is the after picture. He kind of resembles Cale Gundy is this picture....hmmm.......he says he now runs faster in his basketball games with his short hair. Who knew???

I couldn't find Walker the other day in the house. This is where I found him. Watching his big brother hoop it up in the driveway! Big surprise...SHHH don't tell Jackson, but for Christmas he is getting a real live NBA basketball goal for the driveway. He is never going to come inside. Ever.

We had a special visitor at our house last night!!!! We had some friends over for pizza and cookies and what a surprise when the big man showed up! The kids were floored!

And then this morning....sweet boys were playing on the floor....when Walker turned the lightsaber on all by himself. The force is strong with that one.

Jackson spent the day at the Santa Holiday Camp at the Devon Boathouse. What a blast he had! He ziplined, and there was a reindeer launch, games, rowing, and he even rock climbed for the first time. He had a ball!

This weekend we have NOTHING on the calendar and I am so excited. I want to take time and love on my family, look at Christmas lights, drink hot chocolate, take naps and celebrate life! It's time to slow down and remember Jesus' birthday and how much he loves us and I can't wait to do that with my kiddos!

Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday break! Much love!
