Our Christmas - Part One

I hope everyone had a very, merry Christmas! We sure did and it was so nice to be home for a few days with the kids. It makes me miss them so much when I am at work!
This year we had four Christmas celebrations. We were exhausted by Christmas morning but it was all worth it to be with family. Our first Christmas was actually a week before Christmas with my dad's brothers and sisters and all of their kids. It was sad since this is the first year without my Mamaw and Papaw. Plus on top of it all, my dad was still working in NYC for FEMA and my brother Jonathan was still in DC. It was still good to watch the kids open presents and see the look on their face when they did.

And I had to share this picture of the girls. I made their dresses! 
The second Christmas celebration we had was with Aaron's family. It was another great celebration since it was our nephew John's first Christmas. Of course it was bittersweet because we were all missing Paula so much and John has helped with that void.


John wanted to give Blake kisses in this picture. He just couldn't get enough of his big cousin Blake! I can't imagine the trouble they are going to get into when they get older.
Our next Christmas was with my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins on my mom's side of the family. We always play some sort of card game so some pictures below are from our game of 'Pass the Trash'. It always gets very competitive with our family!
