Remember these little guys last Christmas?
They have sure grown up quite a bit this year!!
Anyway... more about our Christmas this year!!
We had a great Christmas weekend with Justin's parents, my parents, and my brother (and the dogs too!). The nice part of this Christmas was that, since we live so close to my parents, we were able to split the food preparation and hosting duties between our two houses! A fun way to do it! (Even though it meant we ate WAY TOO much food!) We spent the day on Christmas Eve with Justin's parents, and after church, had dinner at my parent's house. My mom prepared an absolutely delicious dinner of ham, cheesy potatoes, asparagus, fruit and rolls...heavenly!
We watched some football games (none of our teams won.) Before the games, we went to the Gaylord Texan, and great hotel in this area, for the day on Christmas eve, and had so much fun looking at all the decorations! It was cold outside, but the open atrium inside is always at 74 degrees!

|Pappaw and Mammaw enjoyed looking at all the |
decorations with the boys too!
Okay... and now on to Christmas day! We had breakfast (homemade cinnamon and orange rolls) and lunch (the traditional turkey feast!) at our house, since it was easier having the boys here for the day. We dressed everyone up and got some pictures, and then had a pretty relaxing day!

|The boys LOVED Pappaw and Mammaw's flashing light necklaces!|
|With Uncle Aaron... still distracted by the necklaces!|
|But then Jack figured out that he could bite off the lights that didn't flash, |
so that was the end of the necklaces!
|Will modeling the Superman vests Sara got them|
|Will showing his basketball skills... can you say, 'scholarship"?!!|
The teeter-totter that Gigi and Grandpa got them...
|Modeling their bibs that Gigi crossstitched them!|
|Jack loving his new chair! We got these for them, and they love them!|

What a great Christmas! I'm sad that it is over, but I'm so thankful for such wonderful memories with our families! Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas as well!!
