This past weekend, we headed to Yesterland Farm in Canton, Texas. 
This was our first visit but definitely not our last.  It was too precious for words and Mercer had such a blast (aside from when we spotted Santa). 


Today I am sharing some of my favorite photos from our Christmas session with Lori Wilson.  Getting three smiles simultaneously continues to be an issue for the Parnell clan but we're getting there.  


Last Sunday, my family ventured to the newly opened "Enchant" in Arlington.  We decided to arrive right as it opened...along with every single other person who had a ticket.  There may have been quite a line wait at the beginning.  Once doors opened, it really wasn't too bad.  

We headed straight for Santa upon entering.  Last year, like most children, Mercer was not into the whole sit on Santa's lap thing.  This year, however, I thought it was going to be different. She has been talking him up so much, reading all the Santa books, etc.  I really thought we had a chance.  

I thought wrong. 

The rest of the evening involved watching ice skaters, looking at the lights (of course), and delicious food trucks.  What a great way to kick off the season.


We spent Thanksgiving at the lake this year.  
We enjoyed beautiful weather and an excess of calories. 

My contribution you may ask?  Emporium Pies. After trying to find street parking for approximately 20 minutes then waiting in the pre-order line to pick up for another hour, I swore I would not be doing this again.  However, now that I am looking back at the photos of this dang apple pie...I'll likely completely do it again.

This October, I headed to Fredericksburg to celebrate our ten year (tear) reunion with my fellow Kappa Kappa Gammas. Our President, Emily, put together the most amazing weekend and I am already counting down the days until we can do it all over again.
