Tree Decorating Party

Today we had a party at Sophia and Jack's house. Olivia Grace got to decorate her own tree. After lunch the kids also decorated tree cakes. Olivia Grace really likes to eat the icing!

Lunch With My Friends
Yesterday Caroline, Carlee, and Parker came over for Christmas lunch and cookie decorating. They had a great time playing together and making just a little mess with the icing.

Brent's Work Party

Last Saturday night we went to Brent's clinic work party. We had a great time. Olivia Grace actually sat in Santa's lap.

Caroline's 2nd Birthday Party
Last Saturday we went to Caroline's birthday party. Olivia Grace had so much fun hunting for bugs and playing on the swing set. Happy Birthday Caroline!

Trying to get a picture of a 2 year old is sometimes IMPOSSIBLE!!!!

Branson Trip
We met Dukes, Nana, Pop, Aunt Ellen, Uncle Stewart, Jordan, and Cristi in Branson for the weekend. We rented a terrific house that we could all stay in. We had a great time being together. On Saturday we went to Silver Dollar City all day. The kids and adults enjoyed riding the rides. We got to see the parade that night. On Sunday we went SHOPPING. We had a great weekend.

Surprise Party

Olivia Grace's Great-Dad (Brent's Granddad) turned 94 years old on November 25th. We went to Ft. Smith for his surprise party. Olivia Grace loved playing with her cousins Colton and Chandlan. Happy 94th Birthday Great-Dad!! We love you!!!!


We had a nice Thanksgiving at home this year. Brent had to work the entire week and weekend. He had to round in the hospital Thanksgiving morning. So we had GiGi and Mamaw and Papaw for lunch. NO, I did not have to cook. Mamaw brought everything and cooked it at our house. We had a relaxing day. We put up Christmas decorations and GiGi worked on some crafts. That night we took Mamaw and Papaw to see the lights downtown. We were able to twist Papaw's arm and they spent the night. GiGi stayed another night with us (which we loved)!!!

Downtown Lighting
We made it our 2nd annual downtown lighting and Christmas parade. We met several families from the neighborhood at the parade. Olivia Grace loved all the lights and floats. We finished the night off having dinner with the Boyd's.

Olivia Grace went to a birthday party for 3 of her friends in the neighborhood (Jake, Brooks, and Russell). It was at the FAC. She had a blast running and playing with all of her friends. The best part was that a firetruck came. The kids got to walk through it and talk to the firemen.

Thanksgiving Feast

Olivia Grace loves going to Mother's Day Out. Her Mommy also likes it very much. She had a great feast for Thanksgiving.

Back in October Aunt Ellen, Uncle Stewart, Jordan, and Cristi came to Fayetteville. We had a terrific time. We made s'mores and watched the Razorbacks play. We also went up on campus to look around. Olivia Grace loves to play with her cousin!!!

Olivia Grace's Prince

Brent dressed up for Halloween also. He was the Prince from Snow White. Him and several nurses dressed up. He won 2nd place for Best Costume.

Our Little Ladybug

Olivia Grace was a ladybug for Halloween (I know I'm late). The day before Halloween we met Caroline and Carlee for our annual Halloween picture taking. The girls had so much fun prancing around in their costumes. I was shocked that Olivia Grace would actually wear her antennas. She called it her hat. On Halloween we went over to the Simco's house for our 2nd annual Halloween party. The kids had so much fun. I did take pictures, but I don't have the pictures (another story).

St. Louis
A few weeks ago we went to St. Louis. We had a wonderful time getting away. Olivia Grace loved staying in a hotel. We went to the St. Louis Arch. We did a lot of shopping. We went to the St. Louis Zoo. Olivia Grace loved riding the train at the zoo. We went to a butterfly aquarium (saw 1,000's of butterflies). On the way home we went to Silver Dollar City and did more shopping!

Pumpkin Patch

Several weeks ago Olivia Grace went to the pumpkin patch with her friends from the neighborhood. We had a blast running around the pumpkins. After the kids played we had a picnic lunch. Then we took our new pumpkin home.
