Christmas 2012

just a short and sweet post with pics of our Christmas! We all went to Ashlee and Jonathan's house- which was so festive and they were such wonderful hosts! We all had a wonderful time! SO many of us got sick either before or after but for a blessed 3 days we were all fine and lots of memories were made!
 Bev came on Christmas Eve and gave a gift to the kids from her and Laura.  They knew how special the water park passes were that Chelsa gave them every year and decided to carry on the tradition for her- so sweet!! We desperately missed our sweet Chelsa this Christmas- so many times we'd just stop because a memory or longing would just stop us in our tracks. She LOVED being with the kids on Christmas and it just was hard without her.  This is her last Christmas (with all the first-borns:)
One great thing about this year was we were just really relaxed and had fun just hanging out together. The kids all got along great and had fun playing all sorts of made-up games:)
 Seriously Rhett is just so adorable!
 As mom and daughter were walking together I just had to get a shot of their shoes!:)

 Parker got Chandler a Duck Dynasty shirt:)
 Grami put one of Rhett's presents in this giant sack because we knew she'd love the sack as much or more than the gift!

 And then it SNOWED on CHRISTMAS!!!! So much fun!

 Rhett's first snow!
And then Heather emailed me a link to their "Gotcha Day" video of them bringing Beck home and we ALL gathered around to watch that- AWESOME video!  Go watch it now!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
