So, what's the scuttlebutt, you ask? Here we go...
Thanksgiving was a great time. We celebrated with 2 incredible meals, one with my family (party of 7) and one with Nate's (party of 38). We are so lucky to have such amazing families. We love going to Tulsa to see everyone... and I wish we could do it more. I wish I had more time over Thanksgiving, but we will be there for 3 nights for Christmas. Yay! My favorite bite of food consists of a little turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy. Just in case you guys were wondering.
Good Times with Good Friends
Our great friends, Staci and Zach (aka Stach), had us over for a holiday dinner. Okay, Staci had us over for a holiday dinner and Zach was there. Just kidding Z, you are a great host. Good food, good drinks and good friends. We are lucky to have them in the 405 with us!
We had CDB over for game night. For those who don't know, CDB consists of my brother, Derek, and his
Nathan and I attended the annual Blue Haven Christmas party. It was a. blast. Seriously. I didn't know that much fun could be had at a work party. We partied hard with Brad and his fabulous Sarah and 2 new people, Austin and his fabulous Chelsea. We played a rousing game of Dirty Santa and Nate and I ended up with a bag full of lottery tickets and a keychain Nerf gun. We won $15 and Nathan traded our Nerf gun for some Marilyn Monroe wineglasses. Awesome.
This Is How We Roll
2 big milestones have been reached!
Rolling over - About 2 weeks ago, Paisley first rolled from front to back for me but wouldn't do it again for Nate. While my mom and I were out shopping, Nate texted me that she rolled from back to front, then back to her back (back back back). She did it a couple more times over the weekend, but she is a full blown pro now.
Sitting up - She and I always sit on the floor and do various things. Today we were sitting and I scooted back a little and left her by herself. She didn't fall down. I scooted back some more, and there she sat. Now, she isn't a full blown pro in this, but she will be soon.

Going to the North Pole
We finally got our acts together and got little P to see Santa. We debated on where to take her - Quail? That made the most sense, for obvious reasons. Penn? Probably a good Santa, but I don't care to be there with the rest of OKC. Northpark? I heard from a couple of people that this was a great Santa, buuuut its Northpark. Bass Pro? They give free pictures. Just when I thought we had decided on Bass Pro, we ran into the perfect Santa. Quail Springs Mall came through for us again. How convenient! He was just steps from Baby Gap and he truly was perfect. We waited about an hour and a half to see him, but made it there in good spirits with no tears! It was a Santa Success.
Nathan and I will be celebrating our 10th Christmas together this year. How is that possible? We met on December 13 (happy birthday Emmy!!!), 2001. We were sophomores in high school; I was 16 and he was 15. *Insert cradle robber joke here* The story of how we met is a long crazy one. Actually, its not. We met one night at a school function and that night I told my friends that I was going to marry him. 4 years later, I did marry him. Anywho, Happy 10th Christmas babe!
That's all for now, folks. I'll be back soon with a post about our Christmas festivities.
