I just love that the girls have trees in their rooms! Looking at them just makes me smile!
Miss Ashlyn's tree
Mallory's Barney tree, that she has redecorated 100+times!

Wow, what a busy, but Wonderful Holiday! We had family here from Greenville and Atlanta, and I loved it. My brother in law fried the turkey, and although I was born and raised in South Carolina, this was my first fried turkey. Pretty darn good! My sweet Madi turned 5 on the 27th, along with my nephew Braden who turned 13, and my Mom turned @% on the 29th! My mom left on her Birthday to head back to Greenville, so I did not get any pictures, but I hate she spent the day on I-95! Sorry Mom, but I was so glad to have you here!
The Birthday loot! Braden is having a huge party with a DJ when he gets back to Atlanta, so that's why he has no gifts to unwrap, and we gave him $, so that's already in his pocket:)

Mallory had her Thanksgiving Feast at preschool today, and they made the cutest headbands I have ever seen! They had turkey legs on each side made from paper bags! This was adorable! Here are some of the sweet pictures!

I had many of you ask me about Mallory's birthday outfit, and I have to say, this brand is one of my favorites! I have to admit, they are pricey, but I can get away with it, because I have 4 girls. That means, at least 3 of them will wear the outfit, so divided by 3, it is a great deal :) That is how I explain it to my husband anyway. I got it from Magic Windows in Charlotte, NC, but the brand is Potato Saks. To get a better deal, and better selection, check it out on EBAY. They have tons!! Beware, you will want one for every occasion!

Mallory's preschool teacher gave her a Birthday party at school today since she started 2 weeks after her actual B-day. I thought that was so sweet, and she was beyond excited!
Madi is officially off the waiting list, and now in Pre-K! We are all thrilled about that! :) Here she is on her first day!

I am so thankful to have my girls here with me. I know you have all heard about the little girl, Somer, who was walking home from school, and never made it. That is 15 mins from my house, and now there is a child killer on the loose. I can not imagine what that mother is going through right now. Today I will pray for that mother, and the siblings she left behind. As I sit here and type this, the trash is being collected outside, and just the sound of that truck makes me cringe. That monster dumped her body in the trash.
Gracious God, in the vulnerability of a child, we recognize our own fragility. In their tender innocence, we are reminded that life is meant to be lived with curious and joyful abandon. Help us, who are no longer children, to retain the freshness of childhood and to be the protectors and mentors of those whose lives are just beginning. May we see in their eyes the clear window of heaven. Guide us in the ways to keep all children safe and in your great love, O Lord, hold them in your peaceful embrace so they are not overcome by loneliness, fear, or danger. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.

It seems like most of my posts have been about Mallory lately, but she is the one that has had a very busy week! This was her very first day of preschool! Yes, it is 8:45 am and she is eating a turkey hot dog (minus the bun). She loves them, so whatever I can get in her for breakfast, I do it :)

I don't know if you remember, but not long ago I helped my baby sister on a photo shoot, and we had a ball! Well, here are the results, and SHE MADE THE COVER!!! WHOOHOOO! Way too go Lauren, you look beautiful, as always!
