Christmas Faces – Part 1

Marmie was with us the week of Christmas. She was our only overnight house guest this year and she was a special one, for sure. Henry got lots of Marmie time. I hope the Fab Four don’t hate Henry already! ha.

We loved meeting Henry’s 2nd cousin, Caden. He came a few days after Christmas. He is the son of Randall’s cousin, Micah and his wife, Tabby. We are hoping our boys will grow to be good buddies. Caden is 53 weeks older than Henry.

Randall’s Aunt Diana “Sissy” loves a baby and this means our little Henry is on her list! She is Caden’s “Grams” and she came with Uncle Rick to see Henry. She had not seen him since the hospital. We were so glad to see her again.

We saw lots of these sweet people, his Nana and Papa. Only being an hour away, Molly can come keep him for me while Papa goes tool shopping, etc. Papa loves a bargain and Nana loves a baby…score for them! We took Henry to their house the Sunday before Christmas to see Nana’s white and blue tree and to eat lunch.

Henry met this sweet man the morning after he was born when he came to the hospital. This is Randall’s grandad, Pat. This is where Henry’s middle name comes from – Patton. We took Henry to see him the Sunday before Christmas. I think they will be good buddies. Randall’s Aunt Dee Dee and Uncle Tim may come see him soon (Dee is Pat’s daughter) and we look forward to Henry meeting them. His Uncle Tim is one of the funniest people we know. I need a good laugh.

This week we still have lots of Christmas to do and many other faces to see (that will be post “Part 2” this weekend). Grandaddy, Aunt Connie, Juju, Fab Four, Uncle Stephen, Aunt Babs, Hollye, Claire, Thew, Uncle Joe and Ashley are all going to see this baby boy on Friday when we trek over to north Mississippi. He is anxious to meet the Fab Four. I cannot wait to get a picture of the 5 of them together and one with Claire in the mix. My heart may explode.

In January, we will do a “part 3 trip to the Fort” post. I cannot wait for Henry to meet his “people” on the west side of the state. In early Spring he will meet my Mawmaw and UD when we take him to Texas. My heart goes crazy thinking about him meeting them…come on Spring!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
