Happy Friday Friends!
I'm linking up today today with 
to play catch up since it's been a sweet forever since I've blogged.

We had a wonderful Christmas here in Bucklesberry; therefore
it deserves lots of pics.

 We went to our all time favorite place, Mike's Tree Farm!
We got there super early and only waited in line for 30 minutes to 
get our bellies full of Mac-n-cheese!

Bailey and her friend were saying goodbye to their 5th grade 
teacher.  She moved with her husband to Tennessee.
Everyone is still missing her!

Bailey and I all festive for Church.
She is wearing one of Madison's skirts from when
she was little.  Bailey was not too happy about this.

We went to the Paramount Theater to watch,
It's a Wonderful Life.
Always a fun Christmas tradition.

A little Christmas shopping and eating with my girls.

Our elves are always up to something!

Bailey and I made some Christmas goodies.

Christmas Eve family selfie on the way to church.

We made cookies for Santa and left him a nice
cup of chocolate milk.

Bailey left a sweet note for the elves.
Always sad when we have to say goodbye.

And Christmas morning finally arrived!

Bailey's favorite gift was this record player.
She has really enjoyed it.

She also got this- Our Generation classroom set.

Madison finally got her big request- a camera.

She got some other cute things as well.

This girl loves music and singing.

Madison was ready to take pictures.

We enjoyed breakfast courtesy of my sister-in-law.
Such a sweet pic of Gene and his Dad before we ate.

Sweet sisters!

Then it was off to Grandma's girls look forward to 
this every year.

My sweet Mama!

My Dad had a lot of old records so we went searching and found
a few for Bailey to take home.

Madison & Hunter all smiles.

My beautiful family that I am so thankful for!
What a great Christmas!

Great advice for 2018!

We celebrated New Year's Day with some
fried chicken and black eyed peas.

That same week we got a few inches of snow.
We were super excited!

So pretty!

We ventured to the "Hill" to enjoy sledding.
Snow much fun!!!

The weather is still cold here in Easter N.C.
Unusually cold if you ask me!

Anybody else glad to see January go?
Hello February!

Thanks for stopping by!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Friends!

Christmas is quickly approaching and I'm in 
full panic mode!
I still need to finish shopping, wrap presents, make goodies,
clean my house and the list goes on!

Today, I'm linking up with

Andrea, Erika & Narci for my
Friday Favorites.

We had some Christmas pictures taken a couple of weeks ago and they
turned out so good!
One of our neighbors, Kari has started taking pics and she is 
doing a fantastic job.
Our photo session went great and we have lots of 
pics to prove it.
If you're in the area be sure to 
check out Kari.

My sweet girls!

Madison and Hunter all smiles!

Gene and I with our Santa mugs!

 I love this family pic of us!

Ain't they just the sweetest!

Swinging by the river.

Oh, how he hates pics...LOL!

Before long she'll be all grown up, but for now I'm trying to soak
up every bit of her little girlish self I can!

My people!

They are too cute!

But, us...Not so much!
We had a great time with these you can tell!

Kari did an excellent job!

Next up...

If you missed my Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Post-
We had a great time!

 On Tuesday, Bailey had a Christmas Program at school.

Pics before we left the house.

It was the cutest program!

Can you spot, Bailey?

So thankful for our Pastor...he came out to see Bailey in her program!

What have these elves been up to...

They are always into something!

I didn't even know we had oranges!

Skippy is holding a card that asked Bailey to do 
4 acts of random kindness!

And this is how I found them this morning!
Head first in mini cupcakes.

We have a few things planned this weekend and I'm hoping to 
soak up lots of Christmas fun because in just a few short days
it will all be over.  I've got to stop thinking about that and focus
on NOW...does anyone else do that?

I hope you have a blessed weekend and remember
the true meaning for this season-
