Marc's 2nd cousin, Hannah, joined us so she could be the elf & photographer! :)
Marc FINALLY got some old man house shoes! They have not left his feet since we have been home. He has to walk all around the house in them.
Revealing to Marc's entire family the name of our son... the second we got to his parents' house, we had to sit in the middle of the room and pull names out of the "? Moore" Suggestion Box of all the silly names the family suggested we name our baby. We also presented Connie with a special bag embroidered for her with the baby's name on it. It was a very emotional moment for everyone since we're naming our baby after Marc's grandfather.
Connie & her twin sis, Bonnie, pilfering through the bag of goodies
Cousins, Second cousins, & cousin-in-laws
All of us (Connie's bros & sis' & their families)
We love Marc's second cousins, Baylee & Hanna. They were the flower girls in our wedding. I cannot believe how big they are getting! They make us feel so old!
We are sooooo incredibly blessed to have families that love to laugh and love on each other!!! I pray your Christmases were as unforgettable as ours!

Doesn't he look sooo handsome all dressed up?? Love him!
The women being silly and not really knowing what to do with themselves... my cousin (Cathy), my mom, my Aunt Tizzie, and my MaMaw (my dad's mom)... Why is Aunt Tizzie holding up her chicken? Thank you.
My beautiful cousin, Cathy... her son, Dakota, was the ringbearer in my wedding and will be in Jody & Christy's wedding as well
Jody introducing MaMaw to some close family friend of Christy's family... hmm... All the older men were checking her out!!
Christy with her parents & brother... What a great picture of them!
Marc and my cousin, Tim... Tim was my roomie for a while when I first moved to Louisville for grad school, so Marc and I hung out with him often
I've been wanting to share with y'all a very fun and exciting night for our family! We celebrated Jody's (my brother) and Christy's engagement at the Lay'la Lounge Saturday night, Dec. 1st. It's this cool, trendy place between the Boundry & Southstreet Restaurants on 20th Avenue. If you've been watching "The Hills," this place really reminds me of some of the places they go and eat on that show. (I know, am I 18????) It was cocktail attire and after plenty of discussions and explanations, I finally convinced my husband that "cocktail" does not mean khakis & a golf shirt! Thank you. :) So, we got ourselves all dressed up and meandered on downtown with my parents in the family van. The party was for the wedding party, Jody's & Christy's parents, aunts, uncles, & grandparents, and other very close family friends. We even had some family drive in from out of town, so it was a great excuse to see relatives we don't get to see very often. It was just a preview of what that beautiful day in May will be like! :) Enjoy some pics above from the evening...
