It seems like lately I've just been lumping lots of things into one post. Considering I have mountains of laundry, projects, gifts, parties, etc going on the next couple of weeks, I really don't see things changing in the near future. Oh least I'm getting things posted. :)

Last Friday, Brody and I took the kids to see Santa. Scarlett went with her list in hand and they were both excited to see the big guy.
Saturday morning I hosted my annual brunch. I think it's been about 11 years and what started as an ornament making party with my teacher friends to help fill up my Christmas tree has turned into a morning brunch with a gift exchange and lots of catching up. Anne left before she got in our picture and Layla couldn't make it this year. But in the picture below we have 11 children between us...9 boys and just 2 sweet girls. :) It is always SO much fun to visit with these friends!
Later that night, Brody and I got a date night! One of Clark's school friends parents actually had us over and it was fun to meet some new people. Jordan and Maegan came over with Paisley to babysit and the kids had a blast with that puppy!
Sunday after church my mom treated Scarlett and me to a showing of The Nutcracker. She LOVED it, and we had a great time. I'm looking forward to the day when Jemma is big enough that she and Jaime can join us.

And then, this past Monday, Brody's brother Casey and his wife had their first baby boy. Breslin is a cutie for sure, and I think Casey is just a little bit proud. ha!

We've been wanting to see the Nutcracker too. Was it good? So sorry to hear Clark is sick. I hope he's better soon!! Thanks for the prayers. :)
