As usual, I get so wrapped up in the festivities that I don't take many pictures and the ones I do take aren't good. Nevertheless, here is a snapshot of our Christmas.
My favorite part of Christmas decorating is hanging all these stockings and if you don't already know it, we will need space for another one next year!!!! Drew and Elizabeth are expecting their 4th in July! Woohoo!!!!!
Only my dad, aka "Pa," could come up with such unique ways to dispense money. It was inside the balloons and the boys had to figure out how to get it out.
Ian LOVES his new sports car book and head lamp. When he makes the trek to the bus every morning at 6:50 a.m., he tries to hold a flashlight and drive at the same time (with the same hand) so the head lamp is going to be a huge help!
Lucas says Army guys are serious and can't smile for pictures.
We were BLESSED to have all the kids together on the 27th for our family Christmas and it was SO MUCH FUN!!! We started out with breakfast and the little girls got their own table. (I did not serve pop tarts and cereal to the entire family but it's what they wanted and when they are at Grammy's house........you know the rest!)

It was a Frozen kind of Christmas

I'm not sure who was more excited about the train table.....Drew or his kids!

We were blessed to have Mom-mom and Dad-dad stay a couple extra days
Although I did a terrible job of getting pictures of everyone, we are so very thankful that we were able to celebrate with our parents, granmother, children and grandchildren.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!
