The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The tree is decorated!  Callie loves the lights on the tree and always asks me to turn them on.  Thankfully, she has not tried to take the ornaments off the tree!  

Callie and Aunt Debbie made a gingerbread man, but it didn't last long before Daddy had to have a bite.  Aunt Debbie said Callie had a great time decorating the gingerbread man and even sneaked a few gumdrops!

Callie had a great time at Donna's house with lots of other kiddos decorating cookies.  By the end of the hour, the floor was covered with sprinkles!  She did not really like the feeling of icing on her fingers, but she loved the taste!

As far as Santa goes, Callie is not a fan!  She did not like meeting Santa and the visit did not last long!  Hopefully she is not scarred for life!

Can't wait for Christmas!


We started our Thanksgiving morning very early with a chilly walk at the Berkeley Hall Turkey Trot.  Callie was all bundled up for the 3 mile loop but her little fingers were freezing by the end!  

Love this picture that Auntie Em took of Callie Grace at the race.

We hurried home to get warm and take a nap before lunch.  Mama D cooked a delicious Thanksgiving lunch and we had a great time hanging out with the family.  Callie and her Daddy played some football in the backyard...

and actually took a family picture!

After a delicious dinner in Hartsville with all of the Cokers (Callie's first Lowcountry Boil), we headed to Clemson on Friday morning to spend the weekend with both families and go to the USC game.  We had a great time hanging out on the lake on Saturday morning, having PawPaw's french toast, visiting with Aunt Hef and Scott, and playing games with everyone.

Callie wore her tiger suit to tailgate to try to keep warm.

After lots of fun time at tailgate...

Mama D took Callie back to the house for bedtime and the rest of us went to the game.  This was the first game I was able to watch in its entirety!  Even though the Tigers didn't win, we had a great time!
Our Tigers had a great season and we are headed to the Chick-fil-A Bowl to play LSU after Christmas.
