A Lot of Randomness!!

We have been some busy little beavers in our household the last few weeks!!!!

- Maddie visited with Santa at Story Hour a couple of weeks ago. She says that Mrs Claus is coming to our house, not Santa!!! She did finally talk with him and tell him what she wanted for Christmas

- Last weekend, we held our annual Girls Dirty Santa!! I think we have a new name for it however, Housewives gone CrAzY !!! We always have a good time and there is always great gifts that we are "fighting" for!!

The present that all was fighting over, Kim had it first, then me and then Jessica stole it, and it was hers!!! It's all good!!

- Trying out some new features on my camera. I have just now got brave and changed my dials off of auto!! I am very comfortable with it on auto and know I can get a good pic, so I tried to switch it up some and change it to manual and lower the shutter speed, and viola!!!

all the lights look so bright!!!! I love it!!!!!!

- Also this weekend we went to ICE at Gaylord Opryland and the Opryland Hotel!!! If you are nearby it is a must see for all ages!!!! The theme this year was Merry Madagascar, all the characters from that movie is sculpted into ice sculptures!!! Very neat!!!

Tree at Opryland Hotel

- That is about it for now!!! I am sure that this weekend will be cram-packed with fun, and awesome cheer!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!

Week End Wrap

Good Monday Morning to ya!!!!
I hope you had a great weekend!! I did, but like all others, it was waaaay to short!!! This weekend was for the most part laid back, no hustle and bustle. On Friday night Maddie danced at our high school basketball game with her little dance class. They danced to the Christmas song from Alvin and the Chipmunks, it was so cute!!!! Here is a group picture of all the little dancers. They were Chipettes!!!!
Maddie is on the front row with the Santa shirt!!!
That was the first time in about 5 years that I had been in our high school gym, it brought back a lot of memories and it was so good seeing people that I hadn't seen for a while.

On Saturday Chris and one of his buddies took Carter and his son to a UofL basketball game! It was Carter's first college ball game. However it wasn't my team of choice, I am glad he got to go and experience the game and the atomosphere. My house is split, I am UK and Chris is UofL!!!!! However I will cheer for the Cards if they are not playing UK, now Chris on the other hand he is stubborn he is red all the way!!!!! Back to Carter, He LOVED the game!!!! He came home telling me about the Cardinal he saw and about the HOTTTT dancers!!!! He said that he wanted his picture made with one of them but he couldn't get close to them!!! haha Chris took these photos with his phone:
With his new Cards hat!

Their seats!!! Great view!
Maddie and I stayed at home and done some cleaning while they went to the game. We went and did some shopping and ate lunch at the big McDonalds!!! Came home and we watched Christmas movies and Good Luck Charlie all afternoon!!!! For about 4 hours we sat in the recliner and didn't move!!!!!!

On Sunday, it was my Mom's Birthday!!!! After church the kids and me went to her house, where my sister and niece were. We ate lunch, my Granny come over, and we made some Christmas candy! It was a great afternoon. Carter and Riley went exploring (walking through the woods) and Maddie was mad because she couldn't go, so Nana came to the rescue.  She buys Halloween costumes afterwards when they are on sale for 80% off for the kids. I will let the pictures do the talking!!!! I am in trouble!!!!

Maddie and Nana

Maddie and Aunt Susan

Maddie and Momma

She was loving the eye shadow, lipstick and the very strong perfume!! When we got home, Chris told her to get away that she stunk very bad!!! LOL She said it is my Nana's perfume, like that made it all better!!!! LOL
My Momma's Christmas tree

And my wonderful Granny!!!!! She said that was her first self potrait!!! haha, Very hip Granny!!!

Have a Great Week!!!

Our family was lucky enough to have been chosen by Santa to send one of his elves to watch over everything at the Harbison household!!! He sent Jingle!! Jingle is a funny little dude, he is always up to something! Every night he flies back to the North Pole to report to Santa to inform him if Carter and Maddie have been naughty or nice. Of course it is with Christmas magic that he can travel so quickly. Then once he returns to our house he always hides from the kids and he is usually up to no good!! Here are a few of his little adventures that he has had at our house so far!! Stay tuned there is no telling what else that little booger has up sleeve.
Replaced their stockings with their underwear!!! See him sitting up there acting all innocent!!

Cruising with John Cena in Barbie's car

Farmer Jingle

He tied up a string in between the celing fans like he is gliding!

He brought some snow back from the North Pole and made a Snow Angel
If you haven't seen or heard about the Elf on the Shelf, you need to check it out!! It is a great Christmas memory that you can have with your family. I think the Mommas and Daddys have just as much fun, making him come to life as the kids do finding him and seeing what he is up to each day!!! Also if you have one and are needing some ideas go here to get tons of ideas!!!! Or search for some on Pinterest.

Happy Elfing!!!
