GEARING UP FOR THE HOLIDAYS

I've been in an admittedly non-photo taking, non-bloggifying mood this last week. I don't know, maybe it is having a birthday and turning one year older again that is just making me want to leave my camera at home.

For my birthday this year we had an early celebration that Brent organized at Market Street. I got spoiled with gifts and it was so fun. Then on my actual birthday my mom brought over dinner, we got caught up on the Amazing Race, and Court and Tyler also joined us as I blew out my cupcake candles.

This year Thanksgiving was small. It was only us, my parents, and Brent's parents. We had a nice time though and dinner was awesome. My dad rocked the turkey and Stella ate some rolls. We played games and visited until we were all ready to head home for bed. What was Stella most thankful for this year? That mommy fixed her princess light.

So I totally forgot that after Thanksgiving it is traditional to put up Christmas decorations. Stella was super glad I remembered and had fun putting up ornaments today. I had my camera out from a photo shoot this morning so I snapped a few of my baby and her tree. She was so proud of the big one we did together, but not nearly as proud as she was of the little one that she did all by herself. She put all the ornaments in one spot and it looks hilarious and adorable. I can't believe it is Christmas time again...
