Christmas Eve

We had the most wonderful Christmas this year! Christmas Eve was the only day that we had to run the roads, but things were spaced out nicely and it made for a smooth day.

We started the morning off at Jeremy's Dad's house. Papaw Larry and I cooked breakfast for the family and we exchanged gifts and hung out for a while. Then we came home and took a nice long nap before heading to our next stop.

We exchanged gifts and had dinner at Aunt Linda's and Uncle Kenneth's house. We dressed Cooper in an outfit that was Colby's. This little Santa suit is just too sweet, but he would NOT wear the hat

The kids always have a great time playing here and this year was no exception. Check out how strong Ryan has gotten giving piggy back rides to Riley and Cooper!

While we were there it started snowing and by the time we left there was close to 2 inches on the ground! We slipped and slid to Nana and Pa's house where the kids opened their gifts from them and Aunt May May.

Cooper got a Lightning McQueen to ride in. His face was priceless when I sat him down and he walked into the living room and saw it! He looked at the car, looked at me, and then grinned and took off for it!

Nana and Pa go WAY overboard on Christmas for the boys (they give as much as Santa does!) You couldn't have found the living room floor if you had wanted to that night!

Colby's favorite gift was the Tonka Richochet remote control car and he got a basketball goal to go in his bedroom that he loved too!

With all the opening excitement Cooper must have felt the need to escape..........he crawled under the tree to get away from the chaos!

After this stop we came home, put on pj's, left cookies and milk for Santa and headed off to bed. I was amazed at how quickly the kids went to sleep.........Santa was able to visit by 11:00!
