[Editor's note:  This was supposed to be posted yesterday (the 18th) but I didn't get the pictures and video added like the boss asked.  Hey, it was my birthday!]

Time is passing fast! Today is the 18th and the kids are out of school for Christmas break!  Today is also David's birthday and our 22nd wedding anniversary!  We have been really busy this month but things are starting to slow down this week and I like being able to just enjoy the season.

McKenzie attended her first winter cotillion as a freshman the first of December.  She had a great time with friends. I think what she enjoyed the most was getting all dolled up at the salon and wearing a pretty dress.  A few of us moms cooked  dinner for the couples.  They enjoyed that time at Haley Williams' house. We also rented them a limo to ride them around and to the dance since none of the guys can drive yet. Her date to the dance was Aidan Moore. Can't believe she is old enough to do this! Seems like yesterday when she was three handing out programs at a cotillion leadout one year. Here are a few pictures from the night...

Another first this month was McKenzie's first Visions Christmas Show. She had so much fun! The show was wonderful! A lot of hard work goes into this show. The kids do all the work themselves with a little help from the Jenni and the parents.  The title was A Picture Perfect Christmas. The theme of the show centered around different families at Christmas. It was a very funny and entertaining show.  The last part of the show was religious songs and very meaningful. McKenzie and two other girls were given the opportunity to do a lyrical ballet to Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel. Tripp McCrory and Cheyanne Harmon sang the song. It was beautiful. Here is the video of them dancing and also a few pictures from the show.

Merry Christmas!
