Christmas in Texas

The morning after Christmas we left to drive to Columbus to fly to Texas. We got to Texas late on the 26th and celebrated Christmas at Jill's house the next day. Chris didn't get to go with us because of basketball. On the day of our Christmas get together, Scott had to work - so he made a quick appearance, opened his gifts and left. Marc was getting ready to leave for a basketball tournament out of town, so he also quickly opened his gifts and then got back to packing. At one point it was only Mom, Dad, Brenda, Jill and I in the room opening gifts - kind of like old times....or a single mom's get together! Here are just a few of my favorites from the day. As I was going back through my Texas photos I realized how once again I mangaged to take a TON of kid photos and very few adult photos. I really, really need to change that!!

I have a lot more Texas photos to share from our trip....so be sure to check back often over the next few days!!

The "kid's table"....


Luke and Carsyn...I love how they are sitting exactly the same way in this photo!

Miss Payton....she just makes me laugh. She is such a mini-Brenda! (Brenda - maybe this will work for your contest entry!)
OR how about this one???
Grandpa and Mia...

Marcus and Jacob... Luke, Payton, Carsyn, and Jenna (and half of Jacob's head!)...
Baby Mia.....we miss her already!!
Marcus opening our gift....

It was a good kind of crazy though Brenda! And Mia misses you all too. Back to reality - mom and dad just left, so we are back to taking care of our kids all by ourselves!

I never got a photo of Marcus' gift. I was going to take one, but forgot. You'll have to do it for me. And Jill's right - it was definitely a good kind of crazy!! :)

Looks like fun! Although, I'd like to see a picture of the sisters at Christmas. :)

I think our computers are fixed now, so I can get back to the important business of reading blogs. Those are cute, and it's amazing to see how summery Payton's dressed. Get your budding photog. Jacob to take a photo of the sisters next time, whenever that is.

It definitely is a good kind of crazy being with all the kids. I got a picture of Marcus's gift but don't know how to blog, etc. Brenda, tell Payton that Geeeemaw misses her. MOM
