Christmas 2015

We had a great Christmas! It sure did fly by though!

This was our Christmas card this year. It was one of my favorites!

We started out on Christmas Eve with lunch at the country club. It's what we have always done and was always one of Mama Jean's favorite things to do at Christmas. We missed having her with us this year. She continues to not do well so it definitely put a damper on Christmas a little. We were happy to continue the tradition though! 

 All the grandkids (minus Blaine!)...

Rooney's tutu was hilarious!
My Christmas blessings!
 Harrison and "Unk Trey!"
 Dad was pretty proud of his red shoes! He has a major shoe fetish (we have to rag him about it!)!

 I could eat this little girl up!!!
 Hudson had to be at church at 1:30 to practice his song that he was singing at church at 2, so we headed straight there after lunch. We had a few minutes to kill in the car so we had a little Christmas selfie fun!

Church was great and the kids were adorable singing. Harrison didn't burn anyone or anything while he held his candle for Silent Night, so that was a win! He felt pretty special to get to do that! And he finally did communion right and dipped his bread in the cup! We got back to our seats and he said (in his monster voice of course) that he "drank the blood!!!" He is just too cute. We then headed home for about an hour before heading back out. The boys got in the Christmas spirit with Home Alone, and we took a couple of last pictures in front of our tree.

 We then headed over to Joel's Aunt and Uncle's house for a little while. The boys had so much fun playing with cousin Nolan! They were all so sad when we had to leave.
 We had to get to Big Mama and Big Daddy's house for the Whitt family Christmas though! Mom was feeling mighty festive!
 The boys were WILD and excited!

 The girls were too! :)
Someone was extra excited about getting some money from Mama Jean!

 Rooney got the hang of opening presents fast!

 Dad got Harrison this glove and 9 new baseballs, and it might have been his favorite gift he received this Christmas! He has hardly put it down and we have been in the yard every day playing.

 We had a great night at my parents. We got home super late though. Santa was in Canada so the boys had to HURRY to bed! Ha! They were so excited to put the cookies and milk out and get to bed.

 Santa came!!!!
 The boys got up and saw what Santa brought at 5:15 am. They played for a bit and then I talked them into going back to sleep until the sun came up. They actually did it! The below pictures are from take 2 of seeing what Santa brought!

 All Hudson wanted was legos this year. He has already put them all together!

 It was pouring down rain, so riding this go cart took place inside for a bit. This was right before Harrison ran into a wall and made a huge dent and that ended the indoor riding pretty quickly! :)

 All Harrison asked for was an Alvin stuffed animal! It doesn't take much to make him happy! Alvin has not left his side!
 The boys had some new winter gear in their stockings. Too bad it was actually 75 degrees outside.

 LOVE this toothless grin!

 We gave Joel a backpack blower for Christmas and Hudson just had to try it out. Won't be long before he's using it in the yard!

 Then we unwrapped the rest of the presents. What a fun morning!

 The Reed's came over for breakfast at 9. I made Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls (the BEST), sausage/egg breakfast casserole, pecan bacon, and fruit. It was YUM!

 The rain finally stopped so we headed out to try our new toy!

 It was fast and it about gave me a heart attack when this 4 year old got on it! Yikes! He almost flipped it, all with a smile on his face of course. He will tell you he had it all the way! Ha! My fearless child for sure. Thankfully, he has since gotten the hang of it and I'm not so scared anymore!

 We went back to my parent's for a big lunch at noon, then headed to the Reed's that night for dinner and Christmas with them. The weather was awful and there was actually a tornado not very far from us. We had to do Christmas with the weatherman on! Oh well, I guess there are worse things!

 The boys received more big trucks and they were SO happy!

After another huge meal, we were DONE! We were all so tired at the end of the night. What another great Christmas we had!
