It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The Paulk house is ready for Christmas!  I was sad last year when we were in the apartment I didn't really get to decorate, so I was super excited to dig it all out this holiday season!  Going through our boxes and bins of Christmas decorations is like opening a Christmas present in itself!  Many of our decorations are from family members, important events in the past, and now fun stuff to look forward to with a baby boy in the house!  So here's a look into our home for the holidays!

The tree.. I'm hoping Brett will let me get a wider tree next year!

Merry Christmas, Love the Paulks

Ho Ho Ho!!

Yesterday John William and I took advantage of a beautiful Alabama Saturday morning and took a walk down to Anders Toy Store here in down town Northport.  I love down town Northport!  It is historic and all the shops are are 'local', although there isn't too much to chose from any shop you go in will be a right choice!  In many ways it reminds me of down town Greenville when I lived there.  On our way out in the yard Mary Helen came outside and decided to join us, which was a great help to me!  John William already LOVES Mary Helen.  He grins and laughs at her as soon as she walks in the room!  Mary Helen will soon be our number one babysitter! We are very thankful that he has some of the sweetest kiddos we know to show him the ropes, we are blessed with some pretty cool neighborhood children.

 He was ready to go!

He loves just being outside

and there is always so much to look at!

loving his "May-May"

John William wasn't sure what to think about Santa, he just knew there was far too much going on outside to look at than to look and smile at the camera!!  

First visit with santa... Check!!!
