Christmas Parties, Dimples, and Friends...Oh MY!!!

Lots and lots of pictures this blog...

Brayden has the cutest little dimples!

He's just all around cute.  I love taking pictures of him.

I just love our Tuesday night ladies' Bible study.  This was our end of the semester Christmas party.  So much fun!

A couple of weeks ago, Nick, Brayden, & I went and had dinner with Edweena.  She is like Nick's grandmother.  The weather was supposed to get really bad, but absolutely nothing was happening (weather wise) and the electricity went out.  I had made chili in the Crock Pot, so we already had dinner ready, but we had dinner by candlelight.  Once the utility company had the lights back on, Nick put up Edweena's Christmas tree for her.

The next day, it was raining/sleeting all day and super cold, so Nick was home and doing office work.  He took breaks to play with Brayden and for cuddles...

The next night, Friday, December 6th, we had the FBC Staff Christmas party.  Nick plays drums in the contemporary service, so that's why we're invited. :)  Joe & Melanie kept Brayden for us, and we enjoyed playing White Elephant (with As Seen on TV gifts), and laughing with all our friends. :)

Oh, you know, just some major cuteness.

Saturday, December 7th, we were supposed to go have dinner in Longview to celebrate our friend's, John Borum, birthday.  Well, as I said, the weather had gotten bad, and we all didn't want to chance traveling.  So, we cancelled.  What John didn't know is that we decided to change to a surprise party instead.  My parents came down to babysit Brayden.  We made it a surprise birthday party/ugly Christmas sweater party.  We ate lots of good food and played Taboo.  Had loads of fun!
These things were really hard to keep on!
Baha!  Kristen's the only one who is smiling.
Birthday boy!  I brought this sweater so John could participate in the ugly Christmas sweaters. :)

Love her!  Can't wait for baby Malachi to get here!  He and Bray are going to be BFFs!
Morning smiles. :)

And the pouty lip!  It trips me out every time he does this. :)

As I mentioned in my last post, our friend, Tara Swain, took Brayden's picture with Santa at Paris Baby.  These are two of my favorites.  I absolutely love the crying one. :)

Our Sunday school class had a Christmas party on December 12th.  We enjoyed finger foods and a White Elephant game.  Had loads of fun!

Love him!

He fell asleep on Nick's shoulder...face down.  Pretty cute.

I take pictures of him almost every morning.  That's when he's smiling the most.

Sunday afternoon naps...or just chillaxin.

We attended the Bank Christmas party yesterday.

This morning, everyone got to tour our new church building.  It's "in the dry" but doesn't have windows and doors yet.  I cannot wait for them to be done and for us to start utilizing the building.  We all prayed as we walked through and signed our names/wrote verses/wrote prayers on the door jams of the building.  I can't wait to see what the Lord will do in this building!
