We had a great Christmas "break" this year. FUMC closed on December 15, so we had several days to have some holiday fun. One day we made cookies and Anne Cambria had a blast putting on the sprinkles. We had lots of shopping days. She can now identify all of our favorite places when we pull in the parking lots (i.e. TJ Maxx, Hobby Lobby, Kroger and Corner Shoe Store ha!). Also, this year Anne Cambria had her own Christmas tree. She LOVED it. Every morning she would say "cut lights on!". And she loved to point out all the Sesame Street ornaments to anybody that came over for a visit. Here are some pictures from our Christmas break fun!

We spent Christmas day at Gigi and Grandaddy's house. We had a wonderful lunch and then opened more presents! Anne Cambria was a present opening pro by Christmas day! Uncle Davis was in town and we had a lot of fun playing with him. He always entertains Anne Cambria. She loves him! :)

This year Santa Claus thought Anne Cambria had been an extra good girl! Plus it was her last Christmas as an "only child", so she got LOTS of fun toys. Her favorite things that Santa brought are her new kitchen and outside playhouse! Santa Claus knew Anne Cambria was in to Sesame Street so he stuffed her stocking with all kinds of Elmo and Abby Cadabby goodies! :) It was so much fun seeing Anne Cambria be so excited! She kept saying "Ohhh wow, look at that!". I am so glad Anne Cambria enjoyed her 3rd Christmas!
Christmas Eve was a lot of fun this year. Anne Cambria understands the Santa Claus concept a lot better this year. She loved seeing all the snowman and Santa Claus decorations. On Christmas Eve we had dinner at my parent's house and then opened gifts. We normally attend the Candlelight service at Harrisburg Christmas Eve, but this year Anne Cambria slept so late that day that we were not able to make it on time. :( However, we had a great night at my parents and enjoyed our time with Thomas, Lyla Claire and Paxton. Once we got home from Granny and Big Daddy's, we set out cookies for Santa and read Twas the Night Before Christmas. Once Anne Cambria was asleep, Santa Claus came!
|Not sure where Paxton was at this moment....|

I had my 38wk checkup today. Mary Kate's heart rate was great and she is still head down. However, I am at 1.5cm! I cannot believe it. And, my doctor is headed to Florida tomorrow! So, I am now praying that Mary Kate does not choose to come early. I would die if she came while he was out of town. And on top of that, my in-laws are headed to Cabo as well. Needless to say, we need Miss Mary Kate to stay put another 5 days!

This year we had the Burk extended family Christmas at Lisa and Chris' house the Sunday before Christmas. We usually travel to Kosciusko, MS to Great Granny's house, but this year we "broke in" Chris and Lisa's house. :) We had a great time with Johnny's cousins and their kids. It is such a blessing to have such a wonderful family!
