Raleigh Christmas Parade

Hopefully, this will become a family tradition for us! We had a great time at the parade and weren't nearly as cold (or pregnant) as we were last year. We got there alittle late and missed Luke's marching band, Broughton, but we did get to see my band, Cary!!! GO IMPS! Ridiculous mascot, I know! Here's my beautiful family! I love Isaac's face!Uncle D "carried the weight" for a whileThe three of them. Isaac looked in amazement the whole time!
Poor The Boy. Totally wiped out after our big day!

Luke's birthday!

This post is way old. We had Luke's 30th birthday party the same day as Holidays fit for the King so needless to say, it was a very busy but very exciting day for these Mehaffies!

Luke's favorite food in the whole world is the potato, in all forms. So I had the idea to have a mashed potato bar for him. This would include a huge pot of mashed potatoes and different sides such as, cheese, bacon bits, sour cream, chili, corn, broccoli and more cheese :) Here I am with about 15lbs worth of mashed potatoes!
And Luke loving every bit of itGuess who loves mashed potatoes just like his daddy!We all had a really great time just chilling and talking. Cathy Watkins brought Luke's favorite twice baked potatoes for the party! All the Watkins family came, and the Corsons. Alinna came to represent for the Mehaffie family and some other friends stopped by. I also made him a 4 (yes FOUR!) layer pumpkin chocolate chip cake with cream cheese icing. I loved it and so did everyone else!

Happy Birthday Luke! I love you!

Holidays Fit For the King 2009

It was awesome this year. The speaker concentrated on Simple Christmas. She used the verse Proverbs 17:1 that says, "Better is a dry crust with peace, than a house full of feasting with strife". What a great verse to remember not only for the holidays but for everyday living. God brought this verse to my heart months ago and it's what Luke and I strive for daily in our home and family.

This year I decorated a Christmas Tree themed table. I used this tutorial to make the little trees and felt to make the tree utensil holders. The only thing I added to the little trees were cotton balls in between to give them height. I had alot of fun making it and preparing it!

Here's a slide show of all the other tables that were decorated! They were beautiful!

Happy Halloween

This post is very late. I really need to get my act together. But here are some pictures from Isaac's first Halloween! We had a great time with my mom and my sister's kids. Here's a picture of my sweet little family. I am so blessed!
Here we all are making our Trick or Treat bags before headed out to Providence's Fall Festival!
We also had fun carving a pumpkin. I had major texture issues though and just couldn't bring myself to stick my hand and help take the guts out.
Zhayla helped design the jack-o-lantern face. It was her idea to have one triangle and one square eye. I thought is was a great idea!
Here are all the kiddos ready to go!
After church, we went to Luke's family's neighborhood to go trick-or-treating. What a great neighborhood to do it in. It was like a scene from an old family movie. And of course, the kids went away with about 10 lbs. of candy! Oh boy!
