Christmas 2012

Sorry for the long absence on the blog.  I feel like we’ve been super busy lately and blogging has not exactly been a priority.

This is the first year since Abigail was born that we’ve been able to visit family for Christmas.  Raymond’s new job allowed for about 2 weeks of Christmas vacation! So we took full advantage and visited both families!

Our first stop was with my family in Mississippi.  We spent 4 days here, which included Christmas Day.  For a lot of my extended family this was their first time seeing Charlotte in real life!  Both of the girls did a great job with traveling and meeting so many new people in such a short span of time.

The second stop was with Raymond’s family in Alabama.  Since we didn’t get to celebrate Christmas with them we spent about 6 days with his family. Abigail had a great time interacting with her cousin Mattilynn, who is one year older than Abigail.  And we are getting ready to add a 5th grandchild (the first boy!) to Mrs. Pat’s legacy as Cortney is closing in on her due date (middle-ish of March).

Here are a few of the better pictures from our camera.  There are quite a bit more…but those pictures are on other cameras, so please forgive us for the insufficiency of these photos.

Charlotte turns 1 in just a few weeks so look for a pretty full update on her next!

Thanksgiving Photo Shoot

Yesterday our local up-and-coming photo-guru, Caleb Drahosh, did a photo shoot with our family. As always, we are more than pleased with his work. Enjoy the photos
