Live, Laugh, Love

This sweet girl would like to wish everyone a happy Valentine's day!

She had fun with all of her friends at Nat's.  She even took some special treats to share with all of her friends.

GG even came by to bring B some presents.

JP cooked us dinner complete with steak, asparagus, mashed potatoes, and salad.  It was delicious!  All Becca ate was broccoli and asparagus - she didn't even want the chocolate chip cookie her daddy got from the cookie store!  Shocking!
My family of three makes me so happy.  I couldn't think of a better way to spend Valentine's day:)

A look back.....at Christmas

We have been so busy over the past few months, hence the reason I haven't blogged a lot lately.  We had such a great December, and I wanted to share some of our favorite moments - even if it is February:)

We started the month off with our family Christmas in NC with my Aunt Jean and extended family.
 B had so much fun.  Daddy even taught her how to play Corn Hole.
 She spent most the time playing on the stage area.
 She gave us all quite the show when she decided to play 'Peek a Boo!'
 Beth made her a beauty queen sash, and Becca absolutely loved it.
 Before we left, she got to spend some time with the other Rebeccas - one of whom is her namesake.

Her next big event was the Christmas party at Nat's house.  Becca had so much fun, and Nat went above and beyond.
 Notice that while the rest of the kids were decorating their cookies, my child was eating hers:)
Hanna (Becca's BFF) was having so much fun.  This picture is just too cute!
Next, we decided to get a group shot.  That was easier said than done!  After 30 pictures, we got one that turned out cute:)
 The last event was the reindeer food bar.  This was such a cute idea...
 and the kids loved it!  It was a little hard for Becca to understand that we had to get down so others could have their turn.

In between all of these holiday festivities, JP's family from Georgia came by to visit with us.  I didn't get many pictures from that day, but we did 'try' to get a group shot of all the cousins.  Once again, easier said than done.

Our next big even was going to see the lights at James Island with some of the youth from our church.  It was amazing - if you've never been, you have to go next year.
 Becca loved sitting in Daddy's lap while looking at the lights. 
Don't worry - we never got above 3 mph:)
 When we stopped, she would stand up and look out of the sunroof!
 She even got to sit on Santa's lap, and to our surprise, she smiled:)
 She finished the evening eating her candy cane and watching the lights set to music.

The very next night we had the youth Christmas party at church.  While Becca didn't really 'get' it, she still had a good time.  She loves hanging out with all of her friends.
She was amazed that there was more than one Christmas tree!
 She even hung out with Mr. Wade for a little while.
 The chocolate covered marshmallows were her favorite!
 And cousin time is always fun:)

After our busy month, we finally made it to Christmas.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

We had a very fun, busy month, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.  2012 is proving to be a great year already, and we are looking forward to everything else it will bring.
