Memphis Christmas 2013

We spent the weekend before Christmas in Memphis celebrating the holiday. And boy did we celebrate!

We exchanged presents with the O'Dells, babysit for a sweet new friend, opened up lots of presents with MeMe and Pop, and had brunch with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

{this just melts my heart. abbi loving on james}

Later that night, I had the pleasure of babysitting sweet baby Barrett. He is the son of my Phi Mu lil sis, Megan. Megan's husband Brandon is from Collierville, and they happened to be in town for a wedding. Meg texted me that morning asking if I knew any good babysitters in the area (not knowing we were in town too), and I just happened to know of a very qualified and experienced "babysitter." ;)

The next morning, we celebrated by eating some breakfast and exchanging gifts. Mom had instructed us to bring Kyle's truck instead of my little car. Two little people were about to be two very spoiled little people.

After presents were opened, everyone showered, and we headed to the country club for brunch with Santa. The big guy.

{high fives were as close as james was coming to sitting on santa's lap}

{these two had a death grip on mommy and daddy}

{the harder they cried, the more we laughed. awesome parents.}
