Celebration in the Oaks

For the third year running (pun intended), our family participated in the Celebration in the Oaks Run/Walk. Yes, we are super crazy and did this race on the same day as the Reindeer Run.  It was a long day, but lots of fun and totally worth it! Here are Daddy and Stella preparing for the race.  Stella really needed a nap by this point in the day... 
Jamie helped Cille get ready...

The Raney family. Impressively, we were all on time for the race this year...

We arrived in plenty of time, as a matter of fact, for me to force the entire Raney clan to pose for a group photo!  Go Team Raney!
Cille was a little overwhelmed by her first Celebration...
Stella could hardly contain her excitement over the carousel, and tried out some break-dance moves on the floor while she was waiting for her ride...
In spite of the enthusiasm Jamie and I tried to share, Cille was nervous about her first carousel ride...
Still a little unsure...
The Zeringue family was very enthusiastic about their carousel experience.  Thanks to our special guest photog Matt for these delightful pictures!
I think she likes it!
Waving to her adoring fans...
I wonder what Kirk is thinking in this shot.  I know what Skyler is thinking.  "Next year I'm getting my own horse!  No more sharing with Mom!"  But look how much fun she's having...
All that spinning can really make you hungry...
And here, compliments of Romaguera Photography and the talented Ralph Romaguera, is our annual group shot. There are actually 18 people in this photo. (Skyler is hiding behind Jace's head.) All of our friends in this group really feel like family and we are so blessed to get to celebrate the season with them! Happy Holidays!


*Due to inclement weather, there are no fun pictures from our adventures in Storyland this year. Our apologies.
