Arkansas Encore

Here are some of our favorite pictures from our recent trip to Arkansas. We want to thank all of the aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family who made it such a wonderful trip. Merrilee has a lot of relatives who love her!

Merrilee Meets Santa At The Mall

This morning, we awoke bright and early and ventured off to the Columbia Mall to see Santa.

First, mommy took Merrilee up to Santa's mailbox... Merrilee whispered all of her Christmas wishes into her hand, and dropped them in the mailbox. When Merrilee opened the mailbox, out came a gust of wind and a blast of snow...

We hear the mailbox is a direct line to the North Pole. Next, it was off to Santa's lap. See for yourself what Merrilee thought of it all... We are counting down the hours now until our first Christmas as a family!
