Mema and Big Daddy came to visit

Mema and Big Daddy came to visit right after Thanksgiving.

...and to go to the Egg Bowl. They also brought Mark and I - and we had so much fun! They stayed through the week to also go to the Nutcracker to see Cameron perform.

While they were here, Dad took the boys hunting every spare moment. On their first trip out, as Dad and Robert were walking to where they were going to go hunt, Robert spots two hogs. From about 200 yards away, Robert takes the shot and nails the hog. It was a great shot.
This is a poor quality photo, but for those of you friends with Mark on facebook, check out his page for more photos. Make sure you look at how they transported it.

The Nutcracker

Cameron was in the Nutcracker this year. Tupelo puts on a really great performance for a small town. I was very impressed when I went to my first performance our second year living in Tupelo. Now that we have been a part of the production, I am very impressed with the hard work that goes into it.

It was such a good experience for her. She really came out of her shell talking to friends and adults. She was concerned about her costume, and even talked to the director, to ask her about the shoes. She was a toy, so it was a fun part to play. We dressed her up as a Jester and she really liked her outfit!
My parents were able to come in for the performance, on the left, and Mark's parents are on the right.
Raeley had a great time taking photos of the event. She did a great job! Not all the photos in this post are from Raeley. You can see more of her Nutcracker photos on her blog.
