Presenting Mr and Mrs J. Lee Buffington

This weekend we went to Fairhope to see some friends get married. We stayed at the Grand Hotel which was fabulous as always. Moseley spent the night with his Mia.

Miss Lee Bancroft Engwall married Mr Jerry Lee Buffington (aka Lee and Lee)

It was almost a 2nd honeymoon for us b/c it was such a treat to have a night out alone. Plus we spent it with friends and basically family.

What we have...

We had the best Christmas. It was so great to spend so much time with family. I loved every minute of it. From the fire pit, to Egg Nog with spiced rum, a failed attempt at a ginger bread house (deemed 9th Ward worthy) to a vater and buble fight with Bancroft. Truly a great Christmas.

Another aspect and a less important one of Christmas are the presents. We did however, make out like bandits.

Kevin got some nice shirts, ties, pjs, golf shoes, a hugger, RTJ golf passport, and more...

Jess got a beautiful nightgown, china, money, slippers, bluetooth earbud, bigger memory card for her camera. A purse, some cool luggage, and even more...

Moseley got a radio flyer wagon, little people noah's ark, tons of books and tub toys. A padington bear and 2 picture frames. Laugh and Learn Funhouse, wooden musical instruments, and Tervis Tumbler sippy cups. He also got some gorgeous smocked clothes and cute robeez and so much more...

So this is christmas... Part 1

Ok, so here is how our 5 days in Mobile were spent.

Friday: Moseley and I arrived at 2:30p at which point my Momma watched Mose while I ran a few errands. At 6pm Kit and Buck Hamilton had a Christmas party for one side of our family. Santa was there and gave Moseley a gift.

Saturday: Moseley, Momma and I met Nancy, Staples, Mary Helen and Kevin at the Dew Drop for lunch. It was delicious! Then we went to Big Norm and GrandVic's house to hang out. Moseley had fun giving them lots of hugs. This night there was a Santa party at my momma and aunts house. Moseley cried on santa's lap but cheered up when Santa gave him a present.

Sunday: We went to Church with my grandmom and afterward had lunch with her and my Aunt Bernice. Then, we went over to the Eastern Shore Center for some last minute gifts. Kevin and I went on a date this night to see Sweeney Todd - it was very good and the buttered popcorn was perfect.

Monday: Momma and I took Mose to the Taylor's house (Seven Gables) in Montrose to drop off their gifts. Then to Baybo's house in Fairhope. That night me Kevin and Mose went to Aunt Lullie's for the Barney's Christmas Party. Very Fun. Then, Staples, Nancy, Me, Kevin, Moseley, Momma, Ellen, Bancroft and Jimbo all met up at my family's house to celebrate Christmas eve.

Impatiently waiting to open presents...

My little Weinerschnitzel

Hehe, it was 65 degrees today so I whipped out one of Moseley's shorts outfits. This one is especially cute and was given to us (him) by our cousin Jan Weekley.

So many teeth, so little time.

Moseley has about 5 teeth that have broken through the surface of his gums all at the same time. Most of these are molars b/c he has 8 teeth already.

What does this mean for you? Nothing but a pretty smile.

What does this mean for me? A baby who follows me around sobbing b/c I can't hold him all the time.

Poor baby!

Our first shiner

Today, Moseley had his first fall. He was standing up holding on to a chair with one arm and let go. He bashed his cheek into the chair leaving a bruise and some inflammation the size of a nickel. I feel so lucky to have made it this far (12.5 mo) without a significant injury... I know there is more of this to come though :) I will try and get a pic of it later.

Ella Kate is here!

It's Official

We are moving to Ross Bridge! We have a reservation on lot xxx and on a Heathrow B house plan (see pic below). We have also decided that even if our house doesn't sell we will move and just rent it out. The market is so bad right now we may not get what it is worth. I am so excited. We will be in this house for a very long time and it has such a great atmosphere. If you are looking for a house, go to Ross Bridge, they have a house for everyone and are so nice and helpful. We have a million questions and they were so great about them all.

Baby Got Elfed!

Anna Elfed our babies today. Click here to see! From left, Moseley, James, Jimmy, and Laine shaking what there momma's gave them :)

Moseley's Stocking

Today, Daddy and Victoria came to Montgomery to visit us. We had a lot of fun and they brought Moseley a present. Victoria needlepointed him a gorgeous stocking. It took her about 300-400 hours to work this masterpiece. It has beading and intricate stitching and different textures. It's just amazing. Just a couple of examples; the holly berries are beaded, the nutcrackers beard is fuzzy, and his crown is beaded. It is truly beautiful. One day, Moseley will be able to appreciate the love this gift was made with.
