Christmas 1,2, and 3!

This was our first year to spend Christmas morning at our house with just the four us. I was a little hesitant at first that it wouldn't be as fun without all of the holiday family hoopla, but we really had a blast making some of our own memories.
We decided to start some of our own traditions this year. We went through the drive through light park on Christmas Eve and allowed the boys and me :) to open one gift each.
Christmas morning was good...we even had our own little Grinch (Kaden woke up in a terrible mood).
After some fun with our toys we headed out for Christmas #2 with Nathan's family in Shreveport. All 10 grandchildren were there and it was a chaotic blast...I love that kind of stuff.
We came back home for a couple days and then we were off again for Christmas #3 at my parents house. We rolled in at 11:30pm and the boys were so excited we had to open gifts right then.
All in all it was a wonderful holiday filled with love, laughter, and LOTS of time in the car!! Thank goodness for the DVD player and headphones!!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the holidays:

Driving through the lights in our pjs! We got a Wii! (It has been so much fun)
