Mommy's Birthday Celebration

There's no other way I'd rather spend my birthday than some family fun.  We had never been to the Vulcan, so we decided to go visit it.  Marin thought it was pretty neat... so so so tall.  It was cold on top, but there are some beautiful views.  Afterwards, we warmed up with some of our favorite pizza at Davenport's in Mountain Brook.  Then we went home for some homemade birthday cake by MARK! YUM!!!

Christmas Day

This Christmas was so simple and fun.  I hope we have many years where we can still keep Christmas simple and not about all the presents.  The only thing Marin asked for this year was candy canes.  They are her favorite!!!  So, she got lots of candy canes in her stocking.  After opening presents we had a nice brunch with some neighborhood friends.  This is the best bunch of friends!  After that we went to Montgomery for Christmas with Baba and Fly Daddy.  Marin's exciting present was her very own kitchen.

Callaway Gardens

As a family Christmas gift, we took a trip to Callaway Gardens.  It was the perfect little weekend getaway.  It was COLD but beautiful.  I'd like to go back when the weather is nicer.  We had a great time looking at Christmas lights and touring the park.

 This church is in the most beautiful setting you can imagine.  
It's the perfect place for a wedding!

 Marin was a great little hiker

Christmas Angel

We went to the train park one sunny afternoon for some sweet pictures of Marin in her Christmas dress.

 She loves to throw leaves over the bridge and watch them come through to the other side.
