So Long 2016

2016 has officially come to an end and it was so good to us here at the Harrison house. We reached some big milestones, celebrated loved ones, and spent some special time with family and friends. I am excited to kick off a new year and see what all it has in store for us!

Holly Jolly Christmas

Another Christmas has come and gone and I swear it seems like each year just keeps getting better and better!  The holiday flew by so fast but our days were filled with so many smiles and laughs and great time with family.  We are all so blessed with a ton of really great people that love us very much.



I loved how excited the girls got over all the little things.  Every time HC would open a gift, she would squeal very excitedly that it was a box and Hadley would literally jump up and down and shout out loud just about every time she opened anything.  I got so tickled at HC on Christmas morning. She would pick up something and say "I asked for this and I got it."  It was so fun to just watch them and all of their excitement.

We visited all of our family, sprinkled the reindeer food, left cookies and milk, said goodbye to our elf Tinkerbell, and celebrated the birth of our Savior.  It was a great Christmas and we will cherish these memories for years to come!


Please forgive my lack of pictures from the second half of our Christmas gatherings. I was hit with some type of terrible bug and thought I was dying for a few hours and missed out on taking any pictures. So if any of our Harrison/Randolph family has any to share, please send them my way :)

Let's Go to the Movies

My girls love Annie! They know all the words and sing it on repeat all of the time. So when we heard that the play was coming to Huntsville, we couldn't wait to get tickets. I wasn't so sure how the girls would do at a long play so we bought the cheap seats but I was pleasenty surprised with them.

My mom and sister and niece joined us. The little ones fell asleep before the end but they all said they really loved it and all I heard the whole way home was "tomorrow tomorrow".



 

The girls love having movie night at home and I love Christmas movies so I introduced them to Miracle on 34th Street. I hadn't watched it in a really long time and forgot how much I loved it. It's probably one of my favorite Christmas movies of all time (I am a little embarrassed to say that my second favorite is Jingle All the Way with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad). Hadley cried and got mad at me for choosing it when Santa got arrested but she loved it by the end of the movie. 

We saw the preview for the movie Sing a few weeks ago and the girls have both been talking about it ever since so we headed to the movie theater tonight to watch it. I was a little disappointed when I found out it was in 3D when we got there but it was still a really cute movie anyways. Plus we love anything with singing and dancing for sure!


It's been nice to slow down a little this week but we are desperately trying to sneak in a few more Christmas "musts" before things get busy again this weekend. We've wrapped presents and baked cookies and are all ready to sit back and enjoy the festivities.

Sing We Now of Christmas

Man it has been a busy weekend.  According to my fitbit, I took over 50,000 steps since Friday AND I didn't even exercise any of those days!

WARNING -- Picture overload below :)

I had to work Friday morning but I took off a little early to try to get a little Christmas shopping done.  I headed to Bridgestreet for a bit before hurrying home to get to Hadley's dance class in time for visitor night.  I watched my little sassy pants dance around for a few hours before heading back to town with everyone to try to finish up my shopping (which by the way didn't happen).

Saturday morning, I got up and wrapped some presents and such before meeting my Calhoun girls for lunch.  I always love getting together with them so much.  We have all been the best of friends for over 10 years now and even though we don't get to get together as much as I would like, we pick right back up where we left off each time.  Our conversations have changed big time over the years but I love that we are all in the same season of life right now juggling work and kids and mom life.  I love these girls more than they will ever know!



Saturday evening, Mrs. Sam had a little party for all her babies she keeps.  It was so much fun for all the little ones to get together and play.  And Santa even stopped by for a visit!  We reached a huge milestone in our little world... for the first time EVER I was able to get a picture of both girls on Santa's lap without anyone screaming!












Sunday was another busy day.  I got to church early to get all the costumes and stuff ready for the kids' Christmas program.  It was a busy and hectic morning but all so worth it when those little ones got on that stage to sing and perform their little Christmas pageant.  I was so proud of them.  They have been working really hard for several weeks and I thought the program went great!  Of course my hard headed baby refused to go on stage and decided to sit in my lap the whole time instead, but Hadley rocked her little solo and all the other kiddos did so well!  It is just so rewarding to see it all come together!  I was so proud of them all.







After church, we headed to my aunt's house for a family gathering.  It was great to spend some time with my family and the girls enjoyed playing with their cousins they don't get to see often.  I kept getting so tickled at Hunter Claire talking about her cousin Jude being her best friend.  They little ones had fun playing with their play dough while the grown ups all ate lots of good food and catch up.







Sunday night, we headed back to church for our annual Christmas candle light service.  It is always one of my favorite things we do.  We take the Lord's Supper and sing Christmas carols and then have some time to fellowship with our church family.  Santa stopped by for a visit but HC decided she wasn't quite up to sitting in his lap again.  So she just sat and watched all the other kids like it was a show.  








Needless to say, we came in and crashed early Sunday night!  I am looking forward to slowing down for a few days before the Christmas festivities begin again this weekend.  I love this time of year and seeing everyone but I just so wish it would slow down!  It seems to just pass by so fast.  I am hoping to slow down and savor it all a little more this week.
