Emory Girls Christmas Party

My mom hosted the annual Christmas party for all of my friends and their moms this year. We had such a great time visiting! I have known most of these girls since pre school... and we are all still very close friends. Our babies had fun playing together too! We really missed our friends who couldn't come this year.

Dallas Cowboys Christmas Party

Last night was the annual Dallas Cowboys Christmas Party - held at The Stadium Club at Texas Stadium. We had such a great time hanging out with all of our buddies from Steve's work!! The food was great - even better than the Cowboys Children's Party... We enjoyed lots of shrimp and sushi and the most wonderful desserts!

Cowboys Children's Christmas Party

The Dallas Cowboys Children's Christmas party was last night! We all had a great time! Macie cried when she sat on Santa's lap... but I wasn't surprised after the experience at North Park. Macie loved eating mini hamburgers, mini corndogs & chicken nuggets (as did Steve & I). We also got to design our own Christmas cookies & cupcakes. Macie had a wonderful caricature drawing made of her, and one of Santa's elves made her a flower out of a balloon! The Dallas Cowboys organization really went all out to create a special night for the kiddos!

Laura Kate & Abby

My lifelong friend Laura Kate, and her daughter, Abby, came into town this week for a visit. Macie and I met them at North Park today for a visit with Santa Claus. When Laura Kate and I were little our moms would take us , along with two other friends, Mandy and Anna, every year to North Park to see Santa and all the Christmas decorations. I still have the Polaroid pictures we had taken back in the early 1980's. Too bad our girls didn't enjoy Santa as much as we did back then....

Visit With Santa Claus

As you can see from the pictures, the girls were NOT impressed with Santa...
