Get ready for a lot of pictures! We had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you all did as well!
We took the kids to see Christmas lights at Bellingrath Gardens in Alabama this year. It was absolutely beautiful. We did have quite a wait to get in, but it was well worth it, or at least I think it was.
They make all of their Christmas decorations. I was amazed at all of the creativity! Too bad I'm not that great of a photographer. I intended to have many photos of their lights, but most didn't turn out. Here are a few though.
We made and decorated sugar cookies to leave out for Santa Clause. I think I'm still cleaning up flour from that event ;)
This is what he spent most of the night doing. He flied that helicopter all over the living room, crashing only a few times. And no, Shane isn't mad in this picture. He is deep in thought. We both laughed when we saw this picture. I told him he looked like a thug with his hat on. He's a very nice fella though, don't let the photo mislead you!

This is what we've been up to since Christmas. Putting up sheet rock in the master bedroom addition to the house. Shane and I have never done anything like this before, but hey.....why not?

Mallory had to help out and give the wheel a turn. You just turn that wheel there an it lifts up that sheet right to the ceiling. You just have to roll it in the right position, and WA LA...... no hands! I feel very sorry for those who hang up this stuff on a ceiling with no jack. My arms ache for them!
For the past two days, Shane has had to work by himself hanging the drywall. Mallory has been sick with fever, but today it came down to a low grade 99 so I'm hoping that she will be better tomorrow. I will definitely be putting more pictures of the progress.
Have a great week everyone!
