Little Love

She's already such a HAM!  She'll cock her head to the side and smile at you or she'll shake her head really hard and then start laughing, or (one of my favorites) she'll keep her head lowered and look up with a grin, like so...
i just love her!

And Merry, MeRrY, MERRY Christmas to YOU!

Have a Piece

Last night, Jason and I shoved our face with some humble pie.  We had a wonderful Christmas party with some friends and as we were leaving we got a phone call from Jason's lieutenant telling him to come down to the station to pick up some food as a Christmas gift!
Let me back up for a second.
We are (what I think) a very typical, young married couple with a baby, mortgage, car payment, etc.  I don't think we are above or below where we should be for this stage in our lives.  That being said, when special occasions, like Christmas, come around, you really want to pay thanks to all the people who bless you throughout the year.   Well, as we've discovered:
'paying' thanks = gift = $$$
So obviously December is a tight month for EVERYBODY!  Plus, we're going to be out of town for Christmas and I have really been trying not to go to the store and just dwindle down our pantry, so we were going on bare minimum!
Ok, now fast forward to the phone call again.
So Jason drops us off at the house, so I can put Georgia to sleep, and he heads out to pick up our food.  Now keep in mind when we are hearing this, we're expecting a small basket, or some random food that people don't buy very often.  This is where we started chowing down on some...
I found this picture on the internet and thought it was ridiculously appropriate
(side note: apparently there is a band named "Humble Pie" since I google it)
I met Jason outside when he got home just to see if he needed any help, his response, "Uhhh...yeah!"  He handed me a really heavy turkey and went back to the car to get out a HUGE box of food!  At this point we're now excited and when he opens the box, well, Christmas came early!  It was amazing! Kraft cheese blocks, cream cheese, bacon, sour cream, oreos, stuffing, starbucks coffee, etc., etc., etc!  Here is some of the stuff in our pantry:
I could have stood there and cried out of pure joy!  I mean, this stuff is amazing!
Now I'm not writing this to make you think we're some starving family, but just to be blessed in such a way right before Christmas...well... all I can say is "Thank you, Lord!"

Round Three...not really

Just thought I'd throw this out there....ANNA & LAURA...but I've done quite a few baking projects this month that would make you proud!  So although it's almost Christmas, and we're all busy, let's try to post one more seasonal baking competition.
How 'bout it ladies?!

A Vincent Christmas/Birthday

Another fun thing about December is my sweet baby's (baby #1 = Jason) birthday!  Now that I'm a mom a birthday means SO much more to me.  I loved celebrating birthdays even before, but now?!  WOW!  I am truely convinced of how amazing of a day a birthday should be.  Further more, I'm sure that our God that created us and brought us into the world would want us to FULLY celebrate! 
So we went to Sumter to visit Jason's brother, sister-in-'love', and nephew for some duck hunting, OFF THE CHARTS steaks, and lounge time!  It was great except Georgia Bean got sick and couldn't sleep the whole night (insert sad face here).
But we didn't get to see Jason's parents so they came up to see us this past week and we also celebrated Christmas!
I am well aware of how mean this might sound, but Jason and I think this picture is hilarious!  There is nothing wrong with her, she just got a little startled i think. Baaahahahahah!
But they made up
Now she's telling him everything else she really wanted for Christmas!
Merry Christmas, Colleen & Biggie!

Well, Hello There!

I am fully aware of how absent i've been with my blogging this month...I'm kind'a bummed out about how little time I've had to post stuff, because
I really do, it is such a wonderful month!  Friends and family get together more often, and everybody is a tad nicer (unless you're at the mall shopping) b/c of the 'holidays', and best of all it's
Like I said, I truely love Christmas and I'm just sad we haven't taken more pictures and documented Georgia's first holiday season a little more.  But I do have a picture I took to send to my mom and best friend (b/c she is just obsessed with Christmas as I am) of all the TUBS full of Christmas decorations poor Jason had to get down from the attic.  So if anyone has questioned my love for this beautiful holiday:
If you can count then you know there are 12 containers, 4 trash bags of wreaths or decorative flowers, and 2 bags of lights (all though only one is in the picture).  And the sad or beautiful (which ever way you want to look at this) thing is there were still a few things missing that i think i have in storage at my parents

Christmas Card

So here is the Christmas card we sent out! It was a combo of a Christmas card and a birth announcement, b/c although I had full intentions of sending out a birth announcement, all of the sudden it was Christmas and well...the rest is history.  So I'm sorry, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out!
Here she is!
The caption reads:
Warmest wishes to you and your family this Christmas Season. We are so excited to spend ours with our newest addition, Georgia Elaine! She was born April 25 and has been such a blessing in our lives.

With Love,
Jason, Jessamie & Georgia Vincent

Allie Monday Photography

I have to brag on my friends.  And one of my friends has recently taken her passion and talents and turned them into her full time job! If you already know the beautiful Allie Monday, then you fully understand everything I'm about to tell you.  For those of you that don't know her, she is an amazing photographer, a beloved friend by all she meets and a precious daughter of the King!  I have known her since college and have watched her photography grow into such amazing works of art!  I did a post a while back when she had taken some pictures of Georgia and me, but I wanted to share a few of her newer photos!
Allie lives in Anderson, SC but travels anywhere from Columbia, SC to Clarkesville, GA!
Again, I am so proud of her for pursuing what she loves and being able to take a leap of faith!
I love you, Allie!
Contact Allie, for anything you want documented; family pictures, senior pictures, etc.

Kate Spade

No this is not the start of my Christmas list (...i wish...), but this beautiful design blog i follow, just so happened to have KATE SPADE'S home photographed!!!  I'll be honest, there were only two pictures that looked like what I imagined her home to be.  Everything else was totally opposite, but I loved it!  So happy Friday and Enjoy the random-ness!
