Christmas Part 2

So back to Christmas...
December 26 we packed up and left for Virgina... a 4 to 5 hour trip + what ever happens with a baby who really does not care for the car.  At all.
We traveled about half way to my grandparents when we decided we needed a break and stopped at a McDonald's to use some free yogurt coupons.  There Bethany wet through her diaper and onto my mom and needed a complete change.  She was still pretty happy, though:)

Finally we were back on the road and eventually arrived!
There was a little snow on the ground and so Kaden got to see it for the first time! 
 
Then we headed inside and had so much fun with cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents.
There was a lot of dancing around...
 
 
 
 


memory making...
rip sticking...
delicious desserts...
This one's for you, Aunt Kelly! :)
cuteness...
 
 
And FUN!
 
The next day more family arrived, and we got the news that one family was sick and couldn't come.  We really missed them, but were glad that they're feeling better now.
We watched a puppet show,  Aunt Kelly braided my hair...

And we opened gifts!
 
 
One thing that I love that my grandma does for us every year, is give us ornaments that reflect something that we were involved in or that happened to us the past year.
With 25 people to get ornaments for, this is no easy thing to do, but she always picks out the perfect thing!  Thanks, Gandy:)
can you guess what mine was this year? 
Yep, a camera!
David got a gymnast
 
We had a great time this year!
I love our family so much, and we always have such a great time making memories with them.  I can't wait until our next get-together.

Tried to send you a comment earlier today, but couldn't get it to go...What great pix you took! I relived the whole day while looking at your pix - just great. We really ARE lucky, aren't we...we are close enough to be a part of each others lives and so many families don't have that. I really do love you lots, Brittany K....
