Jason and I alternate Thanksgiving and Christmas with our parents and it was our year to have Thanksgiving with my mom. So, the 4 of us (Jason, mom, myself and Cody) headed to Seymour, TX where my grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousin's live. We missed Kristin and Clay but they stayed in Austin. Clay had to work and Kristin is too pregnant to travel. It was fun for Cody to get to meet some of his relatives. We had Thanksgiving at my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Carl's house. Aunt Cathy was a wonderful hostess and the food was delicious.
Since we won't all be together at Christmas we decided to go ahead and celebrate together on Friday. My grandmother made Christmas dinner and we hung out at the ranch (where my grandparents live). The ladies in our family do a gift exchange and then everyone buys gifts for the kids. It was fun for Cody to get his first Christmas gifts.

Hi! I'm Carley and I'm married to Jason! We have one son, Cody, who was born May 19, 2009 and a daughter, Karis, who was born May 14, 2013! We met on a blind date, dated for 10 months, were engaged for 5 months and have now been married for 8 1/2 years. Jason is a high school youth pastor and we are busy hanging out with teenagers! We love it and love the Lord! I have worked for a radio ministry for 12 years. We enjoy traveling, spending time with family, movies, long drives, adventure, mountains, cold weather, being at home, reading, going on walks and playing with Cody. I love to organize, hang out with friends, drink Dr. Pepper, eat chips and salsa, bake, go to bed early, wear my pajama's, go on walks and clean the house!
