Tis' The Season!

Wow is this time of year a busy season or what?! Thankfully I'm able to start checking off some of the holiday to-do's, so I can kick back and enjoy it.

I sent off my family's Christmas gifts in the mail yesterday, and all my Christmas cards are ready to be mailed out. All that's left to do is finish shopping for Jason and do a little baking for a couple upcoming holiday parties. Then the week of Christmas I work only on Monday, pack for our trip to California and then I'm off for 13 days straight - hallelujah!!

But the parties are just beginning and its starting to get crazy. Last Saturday was my friend Brooke's 26th birthday, so a bunch of her friends got together for pizza in Nashville to celebrate. Thought you might enjoy a couple pics from the evening:
These are my girls from the office, I seriously don't know what I would do without them :-)
(Left to right: Kacie, Brooke, myself and Angela)
Angela is just the sweetest most genuine person and I've loved working with her this year. These girls are awesome because our friendships go beyond the office and we often like to hang out and see movies together or grab dinner.

Here's a couple pics from our Thanksgiving party, but I will say that I had been waiting to receive more pictures from Matt, but he's just been too busy. So they're not the greatest, but you get the idea :-)
These are the majority of our small group ladies - left to right: Kendall is in the yellow sweater and has been coming for about two months now. Then I'm to the right of Kendall. And to my right is Tabby in the white shirt, she is a doll and reminds me a lot of my sister Kris. To the right is Amy Walter, a very dear friend to me. To her right is Melanie Sutton, our Children's Director at Harpeth Community Church. Then Ida is to the right of Melanie, she's also new and has been coming for a couple months now. And finally Alicia, who is also a very dear friend of mine and I love to pieces :-) These girls are all huge blessings and answers to my prayers.Here's another shot of dinner at our house on Thanksgiving. You can see we had the votive screens in the dining room lit and behind Melanie at the head of the table was another table set up in the living room where the guys sat. In this picture you can see Jason on the right and then Melanie's husband Ryan in the doorway. Best food evah!

This Friday is our company Christmas party at Mortons Steakhouse, so I'll be bringing my camera to that to grab some pics and next week it's our Small Group Christmas Party at Ryan & Melanie's house, which I also hope to get pics of!!! So with all this partying, what's a girl to do??!! I KNOW - Shopping!!
