Christmas Preview Weekend

Every year the Sunday before Christmas, we travel a couple hours down to my Nanaw and Papaw's house to celebrate with my dad's side of the family. We had a really nice time this year, as usual!

My mom, Camryn, my great aunt Mary Jo, and my Nanaw

Time to open presents!

She got a really soft stuffed cat

Our Christmas celebration with them always gets me in the mood for Christmas day to hurry up and get here! We're done with shopping, but I really need to get the house in order, especially the play room. I have a feeling we are going to need to make room for more stuff! If I'm brave I may take a picture of the room, "before" I clean it. It's bad. Really bad.

HOw cute! we have our family Christmas party tonight-I am actually dreading going because I have to take all the kids by myself since David will be at a meeting. Just another time I get pissed off at all that's going on.

Wow! You know I just realized I turned that into a totally negative comment :) Sorry!!!! Sometimes everything gets to me right now and I just can't control it.

By the way I love the pic of all of you!!!!

Looks like you all had a nice time! I threatened our kids that if they didn't make a home for all of the toys they already have they wouldn't be getting any from Santa this year...it worked for like a minute! LOL =) Good luck on tackling the play room!

Awww, the girls are too cute in their Christmas dresses! Looks like y'all had a fabulous time! I so hear you on the playroom. Ugh. I clean ours out every few months and somehow it just won't stay neat and organized! :)

Merry Christmas!

Our playroom is horrible!! I've been working on it all day today in preparation for the influx of new toys. Good luck with yours!

I think I would sneak some cool whip too!

Wow...the girls are really dressed up! They look so frilly and cute.

Can't wait to read more about your Christmas festivities. As you can tell, I'm way behind.
