On Christmas morning we woke up and had breakfast at Pop and Lola's house. Unfortunately, by the time we left, Lola had come down with the stomach bug that Abbey had.
The boys were chomping at the bit to get to open their Christmas presents. They were so excited about getting to see cousin Joshi.
The boys got fun Ninja Turtle things and some remote toys. They were excited about everything.
Joshi loved getting lots of teacher things. She loves playing school.
The cousins had lots of fun playing together. My Uncle Sandy and Aunt
Carol were there when we arrived. Uncle Mitch and his kids came too. It was good to see some extended family that we don't get to see very often.
These cousins love each other.
My cousin Ginny brought her sweet little boy Maddox.
The day after Christmas, Enna and Poppy, watched the boys while we went to the movies. We saw "Saving Mr. Banks". It was great. We also got to see Aunt Ava and Brooks for a little while.
On Friday, Reed wasn't feeling well, so he and Enna hung out. Uncle
Bobby took us around town so that we could do some shopping at the local gift shops. Mississippi might be low scoring in some areas, but the gift shopping is the best we have ever found anywhere. On Saturday, I bent to pick up Will from bed and I threw my back completely out. Then on the way home the power steering went out on our van.
Christmas was great, but the trip about put us under! It's totally worth it to get to see all of our family though.
