Hustle and Bustle

 Merry Christmas, from our home to yours! We decorated outside a little bit. Not much but it's better than nothing, right? We still like it though.
 Here's a view of our tree from outside.

So, yes, the hustle and bustle of Christmas is upon us, especially this week. Every time I run errands or anything in town, people seem to be driving crazy, rushing to get last minute gifts, and more. I am trying to just take it slow and organized to avoid stress. Ha! Anyway, I just want to catch up on a few things.
 Our church choir, Pinnacle of Praise Choir, had the annual Christmas party. We had a good time. I didn't ake many pictures.
 Here's our pastor, Bro. Phillip and his sweet wife, Laurie. They mean so much to Russell and I. On a sidenote, they will be grandparents come March! So exciting!

Friday, Russell and I went to Fayetteville and got some things checked off our "Christmas list". :) 
So, Rick's Bakery is the number one bakery in Northwest Arkansas and we had not tried their goodies yet. 
 Russell had a Razorback Santa cookie! YUM!
 I had this cute Rudolph one. Funny!
 Russell and a petit four! We indulged a little bit, I confess.
 Look at these gorgeous lights!! Fayetteville square was beautiful and we had such a good time strolling along the square.
 Baby, it's cold outside!
 How do they do this every year? So pretty.
 Pretty carousel
 Russell and the Razorback!
 There was also a reindeer there too. So cute.
 Tonight, I took more pictures of our decorated apartment. Belle had to step in for a quick picture. She looks so festive in her little Christmas collar! :) She's our little sweetie!
 Our Christmas tree at night with presents beneath it.
We finally hung our stockings above the fireplace. "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care..." So among the hustle and bustle, try to remember the real reason we celebrate. :)

Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words! 2 Corinthians 9:15

I am dating a guy who is a LOT taller than me so it is so cute to look at you and Russell.
Merry Christmas Meredith!
