Christmas Trip

Here's a few of the pictures from our Christmas trip to Tennessee. It was a short and eventful trip. We arrived Tuesday afternoon, unloaded the van, and spent the evening wrapping gifts. Christmas Eve was spent taking family pictures, visiting Santa at the Bass Pro Shop with Uncle Drew and his crew, our traditional Christmas Eve homemade pizza, and the Christmas Eve candle light service at my parents' church. That night, all the kids got their traditional Christmas Eve gift, a new pair of slippers! Christmas morning was exciting as usual. I think John David was the most excited out of the kids. This year his Christmas was full of Star Wars gifts, from the original trilogy on DVD to a Mr. Potato Head R2-D2 to an Obi Wan Kenobi costume. Kylie and Caitlyn were very excited to get Pixos Studio. Caitlyn got the Mariposa Barbie she's been asking for, and Kylie got two of her beloved Furreal Pets. Jeremy and I were blessed to receive a much needed new set of pots and pans from my parents! On Friday, we drove to Clarksville to visit with my Grandpa and Granny. As you can see from the picture below, John David and Grandpa had fun sword fighting! We headed home Saturday morning, and made it in safely by 8:00 PM. The van had a little trouble on the way home, but it was nothing my hunky husband couldn't conquer. :) Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty for a safe trip.
