Christmas 2012

We had a great Christmas celebration this year. We started our parties with the Christmas Eve service at our church.

After the service finished, we went to Bob's parents house and exchanged gifts. Bobby slept for some of the party since it was after bedtime. Bellie was a bit fussy, but soon got over that.
She may have cried for the first few minutes of gift opening. It was after bedtime!

Christmas morning my mom and Frank came over for breakfast. I made pancakes, eggs, and sausage. (The eggs were too dry, so that was a bust. Oh, well.)

After that we headed to Charlotte to my dad's family's Christmas party. Dad was the life of the party, as usual. He and his brothers are wild and crazy! You never know what's going to happen. I love watching my dad and his siblings interact. They are all really good friends and are very close! Bob and I brought some friends with us to this party, and I was so thankful for the ways that my dad's family made them feel welcome. I had fun watching Isabelle play with my niece, nephew and my cousins and their children. It was really cool.

All four of us were spoiled rotten by our family this year! We were given so many wonderful gifts this year and it was just a reminder of how kind everyone is to us all your round.
