Christmas 2011

Decorating the house for Christmas is one of my very favorite parts of Christmas. I love the way the house feels all lit up and glowing for Christmas. This year I gave an old Santa of my mothers a make over from a gold victorian Santa to a classic Santa dressed in red. I also got a new tree for the fireplace- I love everything about it. This year we didn’t have the traditional ‘big’ Christmas Tree with three sets of little hands running around on a daily basis, but I already bought a new tree for next year!

Our New Baby

Gregory Lyndon Harris joined our family on October 19th.  He was 8 pounds, 12 ounces and 19.5 inches long.

Kent couldn’t be more excited about his little brother and Adam and I are madly in love with him.


…Ok…now that the store has been sold I have no excuses for not keeping up my personal blog…

Here’s a quick update.

Kent is the most wonderful little boy ever- being his mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Kent is walking, running and talking- he is truly amazing!

Adam is my best friend in the whole world and I love him madly. He got a new job with Wachovia/Wells Fargo based out of Washington, D.C.

Because of Adam’s new job I could not renew the lease with my store, Southern Scrapbooks, so I had to sell it.

We are expecting another little boy this Halloween, we cannot wait to welcome little Gregory Lyndon Harris into our family!

I am vowing to be a better blog keeper from here on out.IMG_8777

It’s a new year!

My poor personal blog- the store is taking up all of my time (and my crazy 11 month old).  But, it’s a new year and I resolve to keep this one updated.

Christmas was wonderful!  Kent was a wonderful age for his first Christmas- but his Grandmas spoiled him rotten!  He is growning so fast and amazes me every day with the new things he learns and does.  It’s amazing how much we love him.

I had sinus surgery a couple of weeks ago- yuck!  I’m waiting for the part where I feel better but I know it won’t be long now.  Adam and I had over two straight weeks together for Christmas and my surgery- it was so hard for him to go back to work!  We miss each other so much during the day.  Why can’t we just win the lottery so we can be together all of the time?


I’ve been so busy with the store that my poor personal blog has fallen by the wayside. 

Kent’s first Halloween was a great success!  We enjoyed the evening at Grandmommy’s house- he even got his first taste of candy- a sucker!  He was a Pumpkin for the day and Dumbo at night.  He is so stinkin’ cute!  He’s got so much personality and is lightning fast, we can’t keep up with him.

My New Store…

…Is open!  Yay!  Check out the store’s blog

And come visit me if you’re in the neighborhood!

I’m Back!

When Adam left for work this morning I was so sad.  Our vacation is officially over.  It doesn’t matter where we go, we just love to be together.  Kent has gotten so spoiled having both of his parents with him 24/7.

My ‘to do’ list for the store is so long.  Time is just ticking away…
