Christmas Festivities

I know it's a bit late, but...

On Christmas Eve we went to our church's Christmas Eve service of carols and lessons. Then drove over to Aunt Shelly's. We opened PJ's, took a bunch of pictures, ate dinner, sang happy birthday to Jesus, played some Christmas charades, and then drove two sleepy, worn out kids home.

Before church the girls all dressed up!

All the cousins with their PJ's on.

Back at home, leaving cookies for Santa and carrots for his reindeer. The girls tested the carrots to make sure they were suitable for guests, even four legged ones!

It was so much fun watching the girls open presents and see gifts from Santa waiting.

Here's Teagan with a Christmas fav, a new flip phone.

After we opened gifts here, we went over to my sister's house to exchange some gifts with my nieces and nephew and mimi and papa.
We dressed these three up in princess clothes! I like Teagan's expression, she's not so sure about Madden dressed up like a girl, but we couldn't resist!

Chloe, the only niece/grandchild for eight years or so, waited until we all got there to open her presents. I think she wanted all eyes on her like we've done most of her lift on Christmas morning!!

Here's Dovie and her mama. Her Christmas PJ's are under the giant bib - she's a spitter!!

Here's Willa, she just got her doc band on Christmas Eve, so they decorated it with some Christmas stickers.
All in all we had a great holiday season and felt blessed to be around all our family! I look forward to next year!!

Dear Taylor, you have an eye for taking pics and a way with words that makes me feel as if I was there Christmas morning. Oh, I was there for some of the pics! We have been richly blessed by God Himself as a family--being able to get together and enjoy each other as we do. My heart is warmed and filled. Thank you!!

Taylor- you and Price are very blessed to have such beautiful and healthy girls. It looks like all of the children had a great Christmas from the looks of all their smiling faces.
