Christmas 2014

Wow, December was such a busy month! We had such a fun month celebrating the holidays with our family and friends. We also had TWO FULL WEEKS for CHRISTMAS BREAK this year!!!
This teacher mommy was super excited to enjoy two full weeks with the cutest kid around!
At the beginning of December our church had breakfast with Santa to raise money for the orphan ministry at church.
Caleb was a huge Santa Clause fan this year!
"Say Cheese"
Getting some Santa Lovin :)
Sweet surprises from Polly the Elf
Such a cutie
A local church in our community puts on an incredible Polar Express experience. We enjoyed being able to take Caleb this year!

Giving his ticket to the conductor for his ride on the Polar Express
Our ride on the train to the North Pole
While we were at the North Pole visiting Santa he told the kids the REAL Christmas story! Precious :)
Making ornaments with daddy
Writing a letter to Santa Clause
With the help of the elves we mailed his letter to the North Pole
Our attempt at a family picture. Someone didn't want to participate :(
The best picture we could get of this little stinker smiling!
Our next little Christmas fun outing was dinner at The CLUB with Uncle Chris and Aunt Jill.

All dressed up for his nice dinner
Checking out the beautiful view of the city at night!
Once again he is loving getting his picture made with Santa Clause
Listening to the "marching band" play Christmas songs

After all his dancing he needed to lay down for a minute in the middle of the dance floor :)
A few of our favorite family Christmas pictures

Taking a little stroll with Santa
 Be still my heart :)
Just one more

 Mommy and Daddy had a little weekend trip with Jill and Chris to Nashville to see the Rockettes while Momma T and Aunt Jenni babysat little man.
 We started our Christmas break with dinner at Olive Garden with Momma T and Big Daddy, Uncle Chris and Aunt Jill and Uncle Scotty and Aunt Jenni.

 This put a whole new meaning to criss-cross applesauce :)
 On the Wednesday night before Christmas the preschoolers at church had a pajama frozen party! Someone was very excited about the party.
 Look at that sweet "innocent" smile :)

 The Friday before Christmas was party day at Mrs. Kay's house.
 Enjoying all of Christmas snacks at the party
 Present Time
 Mrs. Kay's babies and ALL of their goodies.

 The Saturday before Christmas we enjoyed the very first McAdory Christmas parade with our friends the McKinney's.

 The Sunday before Christmas Uncle Scott and Aunt Jenni had a gender reveal and we found out that we would be getting a sweet little GIRL!!!
 Posing for a pic at the Gender Reveal party

 After the gender reveal party was over we bundled up and headed out to Zoolight Safari.
 Our attempt at a selfie on the hayride.

 On Christmas Eve Eve we took a little trip to the mall just to get in on the last minute shopping fun. Of course, no trip to the mall is complete without a ride on the carousel.

 On Christmas Eve morning my side of the family has started a tradition of going to I-HOP for breakfast.
 Unfortunately, several of the boys had to work this year :(
 A little after breakfast photo op with Momma T and Aunt Jill
On Christmas Eve night my immediate side of the family has started to get together to exchange gifts.
 Uncle Chris and Aunt Jill got Caleb his very own Big Ball store "Target" buggies and filled it with his favorite things he likes to buy -POUCHES!!
 Present Time- SPIDERMAN
 After presents were over it was time to feed the reindeer. Since we were living with my parents at this time we needed to make sure Santa and the reindeer knew exactly where to find Caleb.
 I think Santa Clause found their house without any problem ;)
 Opening presents from Santa
 Santa Clause followed directions very well and brought Ninja Turtles which is exactly what Caleb asked for.
 He even brought a bicycle
 In the middle of all the  presents someone found Big Daddy's glasses and insisted on a pic ;)
 It was definitely a Ninja Turtle kind of Christmas
On Christmas afternoon we went to Nanny's house to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family.
 Caleb is a little obsessed with marching bands, so Uncle Billy and Aunt Regina got him a "pretend" Tuba.
 This kiddo loves books!
The Whole Gang

 On Christmas night, we had Christmas with Jason's parents!
 Silly Selfie
 More Ninja Turtles... someone is a little obsessed

 The Sunday after Christmas we had our last little Christmas get together with Jason's side of the family.
Kiddos everywhere :)
