Christmas Day

Christmas, Christmas, and Christmas again.
Christmas at our house.
Christmas morning we got up early and started doing Christmas at our house. Every year before we open presents then we read the Christmas story. This year Noah read it to us. Noah got a new jacket that was a little to big.

Andrew asked Santa for a Robot which is what he asked for last year also. I knew he wouldn't really play with it because he didn't play with the one he got last year either. Surprise, Surprise it didn't even come out of the box until a few days after Christmas if that says anything about his interest level in this toy.

Noah got a new game for his DS. He has enjoyed this gift.
Andrew got a table and chairs for his room. I think he liked this gift.

Stocking - of course there is a woopy cushion in each one. What would Christmas be without getting a new one of these. Good thing they are usually tore up within a couple of weeks.

This was there a combo gift. I got airsoft guns for both all of them. This is a toy that Dad has to play also. They played with all the cousins with these at Memaw's house.
Andrew got a gameboy for a present. He has no idea what he is doing but since his brother has a game too this makes him happy.

Christmas at the Fultz's
After we got everything loaded at our house we headed for Grandmas' house to get there by lunch time. We had lunch that consisted of Chicken and Dumplins, potatoes, bread, corn, green beans and lots of other things. I brought the pasta salad and a cheese cake. Everything was delicious. Not everyone got to be there so Tim and I got to set at the table with the adults. woohoo.
All the grandkids and great grandkids that were able to come.

Shelly - Timmy's cousin's wife

Nannie & Pops - don't they look like they are having a good time.

Grandma Fultz and all the great grandkids.

Andrew got a new pair of socks from Grandma that he had to put on right then.

Aunt Judy and Uncle David

Christmas at the Youngers
Most of us spent the night that evening. All the grandkids played until about 11pm. Andrew shot one of his cousins with one of the airsoft rifles but that was about as exciting as our evening got. I felt sorry for Madison because it did leave a pretty good bruise. Andrew was band from any automatic guns for the rest of the time. Oh yeah, me and dad beat Mike and Lanna in a game of pitch. I was excited about that especially since Mike counts cards.

Grandpa and his girlfriend. Can't remember her name. I know that's bad.

Miles and Austin. Just look at those curls. Can't believe that is all natural. They are getting so big. I can't believe they are already starting to drive and have girlfriends. This just can't be.

Mike and Lanna

Cassie and Elizabeth. Since they are so close to the same age I always get them the same gift. This year it was bathrobes with their names on them. I think they liked them because they wore them most of the time.
Jason and Suzanne. Jason is busy texting Karli across the living room.

Noah and Andrew both got a pair of bib overalls from Memaw and Papaw. We are just waiting on the cold weather now.

Christmas and the Disheroon's house

Silly picture of the kids.
Andrew, Allison, Regan, & Noah

Andrew got a coat that matches his bib overalls from his Nannie and Pops. It fits perfect.
Matt and Stephanie. Don't they look excited to open presents.
I guess I was tired of taking pictures by then.
We had a very busy day on Christmas day and then we finished up with our last Christmas on Saturday morning. I was ready to be home by Saturday night. All that visiting takes its toll on a big pregnant person.
As I look back on these pictures I realize how blessed we are. We have so much family and we are close enough to actually spend time with them and we all get along. God has truly given us a great gift in our family.
